Alf wonders if it has something to do with the world view of people who live in Kawerau.
They see ugliness where others see something very different.
Whatever it might be, New Zealand’s Next Top Model winner, Danielle Hayes, today tells how she was bashed by bullies and branded “ugly” in her home town.
Alf’s world view was shaped in Eketahuna and he sees things differently.
The TV show’s judges presumably see things Alf’s way, too, because they have described Hayes as “the face of the future”.
