WORRIGEE resident Ava Anderson could be the next iconic ‘Chiko Chick’.
The 28-year-old recently entered the search for the Chiko Chick competition and is one of six finalists representing NSW.
“I found out about the competition last year from friends and on Facebook. I thought it was a good and fun thing to do,” she said.
The former Bomaderry TAFE applied fashion student has been modelling full-time for the past year.
Ms Anderson has modelled in various catalogues, for some online boutiques and has appeared as an extra in a Hahn Beer advertisement.
To become the Chiko Chick she needs support from the local area.
Free to air station 7Mate will air a Chiko Chick Search special on Saturday, October 5 at 2pm.
Voting lines will open from October 5 to October 10 until 5pm (Australia Eastern Standard Time).
Votes can be made online at www.chiko.com.au and Ms Anderson said she would appreciate all the local support and votes she could get.
She stands to win not just the coveted title, but $15,000 in cash and prizes.
Ms Anderson was involved in a three-month nationwide search which attracted more than 3000 entrants.
Judges were looking for women who embodied the ‘true blue’ Aussie spirit and carefree attitude.
The final six were selected and flown to Fiji to shoot the popular Chiko Chick calendar.
Ms Anderson said she grew up eating Chiko Rolls and still indulges in one every now and then.
“I had one the other day and it was delicious. I love fried food,” she said.
The Worrigee resident is originally from Queensland and has lived on the South Coast for eight years.
Meanwhile, since the 1950s, Chiko Rolls have been advertised by an iconic girl on a motorbike – also known as the Chiko Chick.
The accompanying slogans were “dollar for dollar, ounce for ounce, the 1955 Chiko Roll still reigns supreme” and “couldn’t you go a Chiko Roll?”
During the early 1980s, the accompanying slogan for Chiko roll was “you can’t knock the roll”.
In 2008 a new advertising poster was unveiled at the Wagga Wagga Showgrounds, to promote the product using a more wholesome girl next door image.
