Despite the worldwide proclaim for Merilyn, Merilyn came very close to not winning Model of the Year. Her main opponent was Crystal Gunns, and Merilyn vs. Crystal renewed another debate that is as old as SCORE itself: slim-n-super-stacked (like Crystal) vs. naturally stacked (like Merilyn). It's an issue Crystal knows well. Five years ago, The Gunns held off a charge by Annie Swanson to win the 2002 Newcomer of the Year contest. This time, Crystal came up short in a gallant effort. Said J.W.: "She has the best tits ever on an impossibly slim body," emailed N.T. Wrote B.F.: "You look at Merilyn and you think, 'No way!' And yet, every inch of her is true. She's hard to believe, especially considering she's all natural." Merilyn and Crystal couldn't be more different.
