It’s high time for the annual retrospective on rookie survival.
2012 brought us six new girls, only three of whom reappeared in 2013. We were treated to more Adaora, Jessica Perez, and Nina Agdal. But sadly, we lost Crystal Renn, Kirby Griffin, and Michelle Vawer.
This means, of course, that by winning a model search contest, and then not subsequently remaining a one-hit wonder, Jessica has broken the Swimsuit Contest Curse.
My biggest disappointment is losing Michelle Vawer. I thought she was pretty stunning.
Meanwhile, of the three rookies who survived from 2011 to 2012, we still have two. Kate Upton (of course):
…and Alyssa Miller.
|This picture destroys me.|
Meaning that after two issues, we say goodbye to Izabel Goulart.
Happy trails, Izabel!
