Australia’s Miss Multiverse is pulling out all the stops and is going virtual for 2020.
Although COVID-19 has caused many industries to slow down, or completely shut down, the TV series Miss
Multiverse Australia has not allowed themselves to be stopped, by re-designing the series into a virtual format
to ensure their next Season will be able to continue.
“Being innovative, resilient, and smart is a large portion of what our brand stands for and what we look for in
our models. Who are we as a brand, and as role-models, if we cannot demonstrate these qualities in times like
these?” Says Producer, Yolandi Franken.
Miss Multiverse Australia Season One was released on Amazon Prime in April 2020 and has gained momentum
quickly. The show creators do not want to jeopardize this by putting a hold on the production of Season Two.
While this decision could be viewed as bold – risky, it is one that the creators of the TV series, Miss.
Multiverse Australia, are willing to take.
As expected, the format of Season Two is going to be very different, instead of the judges traveling across
Australia to meet the models at the Regional Finals and then gathering the qualifying models in a mansion to
undertake the tests and challenges of National Finals; the series will be filmed with each model safe and in
Some challenges will be completed during virtual gatherings, while other challenges will be given directly to
the models to film themselves completing.
Careful planning and guidelines were developed to ensure the highest quality of footage and content.
Each challenge purely based on scores, so by completing the challenges as they were planned, there
will be no change needed in this area.
“Without revealing too much, I believe it is safe to predict that audiences will be pleasantly surprised with how
our production team plans to pull this off. It is often under pressure that great new ideas are created. Things
that seemed impossible only a few months ago are not only possible but also exciting and unique.” Says
Producer, Yolandi Franken.
While restrictions are easing in some Australian states, there are still many limitations, particularly around
interstate travel. Miss Multiverse Australia cannot risk planning to film Season Two in the same
format as Season.
One and then potentially having to cancel the series last minute if restrictions are not lifted
or if there is a second COVID-19 outbreak.
To be pro-active and remain one step ahead of the situation.
Filming of Season Two will be from the 1 st to the 16th of August 2020. If the 2020 winner is unable to attend the
international finals to compete against thirty global models, due to COVID-19 international travel
restrictions, she will participate in 2021 with the Australian winner of 2021.
The current applicants have all been advised of the changes and applications are once again open for models
who wish to apply for Season Two.
