Two semi-finalists with Prince George connections are in the final stages of online voting for Maxim Canada's Cover Girl Competiton.
Brandi Hansen now lives in Penticton and Terri Shields now lives in Burns Lake, but both have called P.G. home and both maintain communities of friends and family here. By strange coincidence the two actually know each other but were unaware that the other had entered the Maxim contest.
Both sailed through their respective groupings as the original cast of thousands was whittled down to these semi-finals.
Hansen and Shields are not in the same groupings now, and since online voting opened on Monday they have tended to be No. 1 in their sets, but some late-week surges by other contestants have jockeyed them in and out of the top spot.
In order to advance to the finals, they each must prevail versus the other competitors in these groupings.
Shields is in Group 6 while Hansen is in Group 9.
Voting goes on until Thursday. People are allowed to vote once per day or buy extra Life Votes, as many as you wish up to $1,000 at a rate of $1 per vote, with proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society.
