The rest of this short interview with Elsyse from the first season of America's Next Top Model can be found here (site probably NSFW).
[ QUOTE ]

Do you believe modeling as an occupation requires intelligence?
I'm sure you've heard people say, "It's only the smart girls who become really successful in this industry." This is true, but only because they understand the interpersonal machinations necessary to get jobs in a competitive industry. But even the smartest and most charming blonde won't get her foot in the door of a casting where the client is looking for a brunette; overall, I'd say neither intelligence nor beauty is an automatic prerequisite for success.

In your experience, are many models surprisingly intelligent?
I can objectively say that the average model is uneducated. How can she not be when she left Lithuania at the age of thirteen to start modeling in Asia and has been traveling, doing jobs and supporting her parents and sister ever since? On the other hand, she's now eighteen years old and has lived in eleven countries, is fluent in English and Portuguese, and can berate a taxi driver in Arabic, apply for a Japanese consular visa and wire Hong Kong dollars to a bank account in Vilnius with one hand while she stirs a bowl of bibimbap with the other.

Elyse rocks my world.

You can read her LiveJournal here:

It's well worth reading back, especially for the story of her trip to Latin America. She just had a book published, but unfortunately so far as I know it's only available in Hong Kong.

It's nice to see a model who can string a sentence together. We're very lucky to have many models here on GG who are intelligent and beautiful. A lot of the models I have encountered locally are about as smart as a box of rocks.

I can totally relate to your opinion...I have met alot of smart models, but I have met so many clueless, tactless models also that I sometimes get really frustrated with this business...anyways, it's always nice to see the smart ones speak up and make us all look good
