She was once signed with Wilhelmina Miami and attached is a spread from SOFI mag, pics by Kate Benson

How am I supposed to take someone seriously who lists Cavalli and Calvin Klein as her favorites designers?

Heh, I was thinking that too. But I really like her look and I like that spread, too.

Here is some additional pre-show work from a functioning (as of right now) Model Mayhem page she has: James Michael Lang and Level Magazine, Jun/Jul 2008

She's gorgeous and experienced/comfortable in front of the camera. I guess we just have to see if she can fit in more than one market.

The cynic in me is calling she, Kasia and Dayla as ones who aren't winning. I can see them possibly getting overseas but the big brass ring is not happening for them. Mikaela will probably get the closet though.

Runner up, maybe? Both she and Dayla/Dalya have working Model Mayhem accounts.

It's too bad, because I rather love her look.

I agree! Those cheekbones are fabulous. I don't like shorter hair on her -- it softens her face structure and prods her into soccer mom territory. She needs long hair. She also needs to stop her bootylicious poses because she loses 3" and she isn't Sheena.

I just see Blue Steel (hee), and her jaw/chin is weird compared to the rest of her face.

Huh. She actually looks good in some of those shots.

But no, I don't see her winning. She's not a fierce blonde girl (YET!) and that's the kind of girl I see winning this season.

Agreed. Lots of open-mouthed, faux sexy nonsense going on here. I think she's beautiful, but hated every one of those pictures of her baring her teeth. Also didn't care for the bathing suit photo. Nothing about her makes me want to see her in a bikini.

I was underwhelmed by her promo shot, which wasn't flattering in the sense that it was too stereotypically model almost in a comic way. While it may be natural bone structure for Mikaela, the suck-in-your-cheekbones thing is something my friends and I do when we're drunk and posing for pictures at parties. However, some shots from Mikaela's pre-show work are superb.

I'm not a huge fan of her smile, but in motion she looks great, and any time she's on the screen or in a freeze frame her eyes and bone structure and just pop for me. Hope she makes it far. Yeah, so she doesn't look 14... but she can still work the beauty/actress-y angle.

She do have fabulous cheekbones. I hope they do not cut her hair,nor dye it blond. There are enough blonds on the show. She almost perfect, if they only straighten out her eyebrows. They are way too close to forming a unibrow,imo.

I was expecting an extremely fierce girl, and I was underwhelmed. I still love her cheekbones, but her head is ENORMOUS and she looks 30. And like Danielle from RHONJ.

Of this bunch, she's one of the ones I can think can make it far but yes, her head is not the best shape. Her mouth/chin area in particular give me rodent vibes. Sort of like C6 Kelsey from AusNTM.

Her face looks a lot softer on her ModelMayhem page. I am trying to decide if it's weight loss or age (loss of baby fat in the face) that make her look so old. She's definitely skinnier than she used to be.

I don't like her eyebrows. It's far too harsh for her. I hope Tyra gives her a makeover that softens her features.

I am really excited to see this girls pictures for as long as she is on the show. Her pre-show work is beautiful. She seems kind of witty and smart also, so I think I might find her to be fun to watch. Her cheekbones are almost too prominent for me though. She looks kind of gaunt and harsh in motion.

Too soon to tell for sure, but based on editing in the first episode and portfolio thus far, I think she is going to be top 3.

What's her ethnic background? I thought she was Caucasian, but she has olive skin and her eyes are almond shaped. She looks like she could be mixed something or other.
