Supermodel of the Bahamas is the #1 model search in the country which discovers new faces and new vocal talents. It was founded by Oilinsha Coakley, owner of Oilinsha Models and Talent, Nassau. Similar to America's Next Top Model the candidates are selected, trained and pushed to perform, whereupon it becomes obvious after photo shoots, runway shows, and interviews, who is made for the life of a model.
