The winner of Australia's Next Top Model gave a heartfelt acceptance speech in a live finale - before the host realised she had announced the wrong name.

Host Sarah Murdoch named 19-year-old Kelsey Martinovich the winner of season six of the Fox Television reality show.

Minutes later, her hand over her face, Sarah made an awkward apology. The actual winner, as voted by television viewers, was 18-year-old Amanda Ware.

Sarah said the wrong name was fed to her earpiece.

Kelsey was a good sport, hugging Amanda and dismissing Sarah's apologies.

The network said Wednesday that Kelsey will get 20,000 Australian dollars and a trip to New York - which are also part of the winner's prize - as compensation for the blunder.

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
