We’re so excited to announce our Top 20 Semi-Finalists in the 2020 HAPARI Model Search! After reviewing nearly 300 entries, HAPARI judges selected 20 Semi-Finalists to advance to the second round.

We appreciate every single person who entered. There were so many great entries that it took a week longer than anticipated to narrow our top choices as it was so hard to choose!

Now, without further adieu, check out our top 20 Semi-Finalists below!

Get to Know Each Semi-Finalist and Vote!

We asked each semi-finalist a little more about themselves; like where they live, what they currently do for work and what they do for fun. Head to our ‘Contests’ page on HAPARI.com and you’ll see a picture of each of our Semi-Finalists. When you click on each picture, you’ll see a mini bio from each contestant. Our Semi-Finalists are from all over the U.S. - from Arkansas to California to Pennsylvania!

To Vote for your favorite Semi-Finalist

Below each of the Semi-Finalist bios, you’ll see a green button to ‘Vote Now’. Simply click that button, confirm you’re not a robot (click the ‘reCAPTCHA’ box that pops up) and your vote will be submitted and counted.

Per our contest guidelines, you can vote once per day until 12 p.m. Eastern / 9 a.m. Pacific on Sunday, December 20th. You may vote for one candidate or as many of your favorite Semi-Finalists as you’d like (with a maximum number of 1 vote per candidate per day).

Spread the word and share the voting page with your friends and family! Remember, the contest ends in just a few days, so check back often and keep voting for your favorite Semi-Finalist!

Moving Forward in the Model Search:

  • The top 10 semi-finalists with the highest votes will move on to the final round.
  • During the final round there will be additional video content created with our top 10 finalists. Our HAPARI community + fans (YOU!) will again vote for your favorite finalists contestant.
