Last year's SCORE Model of the Year, Merilyn will always be a formidable competitor in this contest. Her Scoreland special Merilyn Exposed showed a more intimate and personal side of her than ever before leading to speculation that a renewed appreciation of her charms would keep her on top for the second time. But eventual winner Crystal Gunns has her platoon of loyal fans too, built up over the past seven years. Ryan emailed: "I have never been a big fan of Merilyn, I always thought she wasn't into it. But after seeing her in Merilyn Exposed, I have to say I am a new member of her fan club. Her smile is amazing! She should keep it up!" E.B. emailed: "Merilyn easily wins my vote for Model of the Year because of her amazing, natural body and prolific modeling." And B.B. was both generous and magnanimous in his strangely slow-to-develop opinion: "I have never been a huge fan of nattys--just personal preference--and I never quite understood why everyone was shitting themselves over Merilyn upon her debut. But slowly and surely, Merilyn has been growing on me and I have finally come around on giving her the respect she's due. Her sex appeal is off the charts, and any shot she does with her fists clenched against her nips pushing up her boobs is sheer beauty.
