The Illawarra has a finalist in the Miss World Australia pageant, Tijana Bundalo.
The gym-loving beauty was named in the Top 5 at the NSW State Final at The Star in Sydney, Sunday evening.
She was also the top fundraiser for the competition having raised more than $25,000 for its beneficiary Variety - the most nationally from a total of 157 entrants.
Bundalo is a carpenter by trade and works in the family-run business, Wollongong-based Bundalo Developments. According to the company website, she works in the "innovation division whereby she flavours the strategy discussions through training and safety".
She's also regularly seen lifting weights at Definition Fitness.
Miss World Australia national director Deborah Miller said being the top fundraiser certainly gets a competitor noticed by the judges, but they are also critiqued on various categories.
"It does have an impact when people are judging, it's not compulsory," Miller told the Mercury.
"We [judge] personality and questions, then we do evening wear, then we go to a top 10 and from then we go to the top five."
She said Sunday night's judging panel included sponsors and celebrities.
The other finalists named include Elice Craig, Kassandra Kashian, Alana Byrne and Sarah Marschke.
The five will go through to the national final on the Gold Coast, to be held at the Palazzo Versace Hotel on July 19. The woman given the 2019 crown will represent Australia at the global final in Thailand this December.
The competition was open to all natural born females in the country, though has to be an Australian citizen or resident, aged between 17 and 27, have never been married, have never given birth to a child, and have never committed any crime.
