5. Angelica Rusovan
Angelica has been working for a real estate company for over 5 years now selling property around Gold Coast and Brisbane. As a child she was actually really into performing and singing but later got into modelling when she reached 18 years old, unfortunately she had to put her modelling career on hold to concentrate on her family at the time though. Just recently she was signed up by a Brisbane agency on MySpace so she is hoping to pursue now what she was unable to pursue before. Since being signed by a Brisbane modelling agency she has done a number of print and promo work and is actually set to be on a TV Game show this month.
4. Amanda Gift
Amanda hails from an “ugly duckling” transformed into a “beautiful swan” story – and what a beautiful swan she has transformed into indeed! She used to be one of those girls that were made fun of at school, now that she’s risen from her ugly past so she now hopes to be an inspiration to all the other girls that were teased and tormented at school because of their looks. She was originally discovered working at hooters 8 long years ago and the first modelling job she ever did was for the Hooters Calendar back in 2001 – she became one of 4 girls selected for the calendar out of her entire state! Since then she has gone on to become the cover of FHM where she was even whisked off to London to shoot for the front cover. She hopes to be an agent some day.

Jennifer is a bilingual, Korean-American student who is currently studying at Illinois Institute of Technology. Half nerd, half superstar wannabe, Jennifer a multi-talented individual who is currently balancing out her studies with the glares of spotlight. Besides being a runway model, she is also a singer and a violinist so stage has always been a second home for her. Her first modelling gig was at an annual Chicago Hair Fashion Show for her mom’s hairstylist, and since then she has become a fixture in the runway modelling scene. Right now she’s intending on graduating a semester early and taking a few years off to give modelling and possibly singing more attention.
2. Bronte Taeler
Bronte has a secret: Just by looking at her, it will never cross your mind that she is in fact half Chinese and half Australian. But wait there’s more! Here’s the kicker – she can apparently speak mandarin quite fluently which certainly freaks a lot of people out! Bronte’s first foray in the world of modelling was way back when she was 12 years old and it was for a make up artist in Hong Kong. Since then she has done a number of modelling jobs and she is currently a Showgirl. She hopes to grace the cover of Playboy USA sometime in the near future because in her opinion Playboy has set such a benchmark for magazines in the way it revolutionized women’s sexuality.
