Zoomass Calendar contest pits the pretty against the pretty

Move over Mexico – the University of Massachusetts and the rest of the Five College community may be participating in a new version of the hot body contest.

Popular Campus Entertainment is encouraging area college students to apply for a slot in their 2010 Zoomass calendar. 

According to a press release by Popular Campus Entertainment, students who think they “have what it takes to be the hottest co-ed on campus” should apply to be the calendar models in which they are to express their own personal fashion taste.

Applications can be found online at and are due by Oct. 1. Students have an online application sent in with their name, school name, two head shots and one full-body shot. There is also a $5 application fee students can pay using PayPal. Applications with photos can be sent to

Only 50 students will be selected from the online auditions to be contestants in the second audition held in Amherst. The release also stated that a panel of judges will rate each of the 50 contestants on their “personality, attitude, fashion sense and attractiveness,” and choose the best 24 to continue on with the competition. Students will vote online for their favorite contestants and the 12 students with the most votes will win $100 and model in a professional photo shoot for the 2010 Zoomass calendar.
