Elyse Marie Sewell (born June 10, 1982) is an American fashion model. She is best known for her appearance as a contestant in the first cycle of the reality television series America's Next Top Model.

She was named one of Wired Magazine's 2005's 10 Sexiest Geeks.[2]

Early life[edit]

Sewell was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of New Mexico.[3] She also worked as a research assistant in an evolutionary biology lab.[4]

Career[edit]

America's Next Top Model[edit]

Sewell's start in modeling came with her appearance on the first cycle of America's Next Top Model. She was known on the show as the "edgy pre-med student". She placed third, after Adrianne Curry and Shannon Stewart.

In 2005, one of her "confessional" clips from the show, in which she expressed a profanity-laden rant against the people on the show, earned her 16th place on E!'s Most Outrageous TV Moments. She attributes this outburst to the unusual requirement on the show to voice one's private thoughts and to soliloquize in a "confessional booth".[5]

While on the show, she said that she would be going to medical school if she did not win the competition.[6]

After America's Next Top Model[edit]

Although Sewell did not win the competition, she carved out a successful modeling career in East Asia,[7] working mainly in Hong Kong. She has had print advertisements for Chanel and Chow Sang Sang Jewelry and appeared on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Hong Kong.[1] Despite Tyra Banks' hope that Sewell would come to see that modeling was not as easy as it was often made out to be,[6] Sewell continued to insist that it was the "easiest job in the world".[8]

In 2004, Sewell started a LiveJournal blog about her experiences of modeling overseas.[9] She published a book called Beauty and The Biz: The International Adventures of America's Third-to-Next Top Model,[10] in Hong Kong in 2006 based in part on her (now abandoned) blog. She appeared at multiple book signings across Hong Kong. Her other writing credits include a satirical piece for Bust Magazine on how to be a reality TV star,[11] as well as posts for the website Lemondrop.[12]

In a June 5, 2009 blog entry,[13] Sewell wrote that she was leaving Hong Kong and returning to her hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico.[citation needed]
