A 45-year-old motivator-turned-model is one of the 10 finalists to make it to Wilhelmina Models' search for "the next hot body."
Gail Kasper, from New Jersey, who gave thousands of troops heading into conflict a sexy poster of her bikini-clad body, is hoping to bag the 10,000-dollar modelling contract.
She was said to be the oldest contender of the five women and five men in the contest for the five-year professional modelling gig.
Kasper, who was Miss Continental America 2009 and Philadelphia's Sexiest Single in 2008, was glad to be up on the stage in Manhattan.
"I want to get the message out there that women of any age can stay in shape, look good, feel good and be working toward their goals," the New York Daily News quoted her as saying.
She added: "I'm excited. I'm in the best shape I've ever been in." (ANI)
