The road to crowning the new Miss Nigeria starts with the glitz and glamour of reality TV.

The new recruits, who have an uphill task to earn the crown, have began the journey with a  Facebook live streamed boot camp.

The idea is to allow viewers to follow the progress of contestants and pick a favorite.

There are 43 girls in the boot camp out of over a thousand that showed up for auditions, with Miss FCT still up for grabs by 7 young beauties.

So, votes from fans of the pageant count to determine who  becomes the next Miss Nigeria.

The boot camp mansion in Abuja began bubbling with activities on December 4 with the “strut your way to the top challenge”.
