More than two million viewers watched all or part of the broadcast and with an average audience of 957,000 viewers, the season finale was the most-watched episode of the season, up 31% compared to the season-to-date average. Winning its timeslot at 8 p.m. in total viewers and the key A18-34, A18-49 and A25-54 demos, the episode was the most-watched program on Canadian television last night for A25-54 and the key female demos F18-49 and F25-54. Additionally, CANADA’S NEXT TOP MODEL was also the #1 reality show of the night, delivering more viewers than a simulcast of BIG BROTHER on Global (943,000).

Following her spectacular journey on the show, Meaghan is immediately being thrust into the forefront of the fashion world. Now represented by world-renowned modelling agency Elmer Olsen Models, this week is chock-full for Meaghan with a FASHION Magazine editorial spread, Elmer’s Boot Camp to Big Time – where she’ll meet with international agencies – and a promotional shoot for Capezio Shoes. And of course, Meaghan will be the face of Cover Girl campaigns across the country as she is the proud new owner of a $100,000 beauty contract from P&G Beauty.
