DeLisa Stiles of The Colony, TX, was crowned "The Swan" during the dazzling, suspense-filled finale of FOX's makeover series THE SWAN on Monday, Dec. 20.
With her crown Stiles wins over $300,000 in cash and prizes. Judges Carnie Wilson, former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, US Weekly's Ken Baker, LA Models' Crista Sides-Klayman and producer/author and motivational speaker Larry Thompson ranked Stiles No. 1 among the nine Swan finalists for beauty, poise and overall transformation inside and out.
Stiles, 32, a psychologist and captain in the Army Reserves, entered the Swan program because she longed to be seen as feminine. In addition to therapy, exercise, life coaching and a 1,200 calorie-a-day Nutrisystem diet, her transformation included a brow lift, lower eye lift, mid-face lift, fat transfer to lips and cheek folds, fotofacials, tummy tuck, breast lift and liposuction of inner thighs. Her dental procedures included upper and lower retainers, Zoom bleaching and deep cleaning.
The pageant runner-up was the Swan wildcard, Gina Bravata, 31, from La Mirada, CA, a director of after-school programs at a grade school whose sister Kari was also part of the Swan program. The second runner-up was Erica Moore, 24, a cashier from La Center, WA.
THE SWAN takes women who are stuck in a rut and revitalizes them by revealing their beauty and confidence. It offers them an incredible opportunity to undergo physical, mental and emotional transformations and follows them through the process.
