Gisele Bundchen Rejected 42 Times by Agents

Guess who are probably pulling their hair and crying over millions of dollars in commission they have lost? Sorry 42 agents… you did not know what a gold-mine you had until you rejected her.

On the other hand Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen is laughing all the way to the bank with her enormous modeling earnings.

Yes, despite her super successful modeling career, the climb up the supermodel ladder was not an easy one, even for Gisele Bundchen who admits to being rejected 42 times by modeling agents when she started at age 17.

“I was finally taken on on the 43rd try,” Bundchen told a group of aspiring models in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Wednesday.

That is of course history because in 2011, Forbes predicted that due to her several projects ranging from her skin-care line to her lingerie collection, she was on track to be the world’s first billionaire supermodel.

And, aside from having a lucrative modeling career, Bundchen married up as well, marrying New England Patriots superstar Tom Brady.

As a matter of fact, she and Tom are currently expecting their second child. The baby-to-be will join big brother Benjamin, the couple’s two-year-old son.
