  1. The video of that Brazilian scout annoys the hell out of me! I would advice him to go to Germany to scout his blonde and blue eyed models, so he doesn’t need to scare those poor schoolgirls in his native Brazil!

  2. I had no idea Rosie was with Models One.I thought she was with Storm and Women?..when did this happen?I think she is so amazingly divine and gorgeous but that is not the best picture to use announcing her movie role in my opinion. Her top lip looks a tad bit too swollen. Anyway she is just divine.
