23rd place


Pelly Kumalo

I am a model, actress and child and youth worker chasing her dreams to be a full time model.

Why would you like to win?

I have been modeling seriously for a year now. Putting in 150% into my work, winning Maxim Cover Girl is the recognition I want. Also, this will open doors for me to other opportunities. This is my dream and winning means my dreams have finally come true.

What would you do with the money if you win?

I suffer from endometriosis the treatment cost about $4000. It will be nice to be able to give handshakes without being self conscious about the sweat. The rest of the money is to go to an exotic place and do what I love, being in front of the camera.
