FOMO Models has partnered with Resort Life Travel to host a model competition in conjunction with the Maldives Government. The agency will be going to extreme lengths to discover the next star. On the picturesque white sand beaches, they will be the first agency to search the extensive hotels and villages of the 1200 remote islands in the Indian Ocean. Who knows what incredible talent they’ll find!
With an extensive board based in London and Europe, Robert Wilson and Ross McGeown have decided to extend their model search across the globe. FOMO Models discovered Addis Miller, who has had an extensive modelling career, quickly becoming the UK No.1 commercial model. Addis, alongside Netflix Star Kori Sampson, will be co-hosting this competition with a selection of super scouts.
Founder Robert Wilson thinks “it’s important for future models to see and meet real talent and real life success stories. This is why we are taking Addis and Kori out with us so they are able to talk to them and ask any questions directly.” They are also using this opportunity to let “our models feel grounded and grateful for all they have. As many of us know, this is a tough business to be a part of.”
By opening up their search, Robert is “excited to be able to go to a country to potentially change someone’s life. People might be thinking why the Maldives? And all that we can say is: Why not? When Resort Life Travel offered to fly us out there to accommodate us with their hotel partners; we couldn’t say no!”
FOMO Models realises that this will be a challenge as “these things are hard work, long days and mentally exhausting. But when you know you’re here to potentially change someone’s life it’s exhilarating.”
The current climate has meant that FOMO Models will be taking extra measures to ensure that they stick to government guidelines as the safety of potential models is their priority.
