A Nottingham reality TV star could become successful as a model after being chosen to be on a major television series.
Tomasz Wisniewski has been a regular face on ten British reality TV shows and is now going to be part of modelling competition Top Model UK. Tomasz has been chosen from 4,000 applicants and is hoping for support from Nottingham residents.
The new season on Top Model UK is due to be aired at the end of April after the final takes place in London next month.
“I’m really looking forward to it, but at the same time the pressure is huge” – Tomasz Wisniewski, Top Model finalist
Alea Casino in Nottingham are the official sponsors for Tomasz for the event and have been keen to promote the competition as a way to raise money for charity.
Marketing Manager Rebecca Deaville is fully behind Tomasz’s dream to be a professional model.
Tomasz has been criticised in the past for being obsessed with reality TV and some have even claimed he is just after the fame. This is something he is quick to deny, but instead believes a lot of coverage is the only way to get noticed.
Tomasz is proud to be representing Nottingham in the national competition and thinks it can help get the city recognised in the modelling industry.
However, Ed Henderson from modelling agency Uni2 Pose in the city centre has stated it is important for aspiring models to recognise the strong work ethic needed to be a successful model.
“It’s not about the fame, it’s about having the right attitude to work and looking the part” – Ed Henderson, Model agency manager at Uni2
Some may recognise Tomasz from numerous appearances on a large selection of reality shows across Britain. He has made his mark on Come Dine With Me, Total Wipeout, and Snog Marry Avoid? Just to name a few.
This time the part time casino dealer wants to be taken seriously as a model and for the public to forget about his representation as an amusing entertainer on previous programmes.
He has taken on advice from Top Model bosses and changed his whole look and style in his efforts to become a model.
The grand final is taking place on Saturday the 5th of April in London. Public votes can be made for Tomasz to win Top Model UK on www.topmodeluk.com.
