E! and PrettyLittleThing will then narrow down the number of Shortlisted Candidates to five (5) applying the same selection criteria ("Final Candidate(s)"). The Final Candidates will be notified via a direct message on Instagram from a member of the E! team (to the account used by the Final Candidate to submit their Initial Application) that they have been shortlisted.

(the foregoing together, the "Skype Interview") (Initial Application and Skype Interview together, the "Application").

Final Candidates will be solely responsible for ensuring that they have access to the required internet connection needed to use Skype in accordance with Skype's guidelines found at https://www.skype.com/en/.
