WAG No. 23: Gisele Bündchen
After yesterday’s morally-bankrupt dog lovin’ WAG, I feel I owe you all some hotness. Fortunately, Gisele Bündchen has been in the news this week, trying to worm her way out of some public streaking. The twenty-seven year-old Brazilian supermodel, who currently may be seen on the arm of New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady, said she would run naked through midtown Manhattan if the Giants won the Super Bowl. And guess what? She’s back-tracking on her promise:
“It was a mistake and I’m sorry I said it. I don’t know what I could have been thinking. Midtown Manhattan is a parking lot any time of day or night. It’d take 30 minutes just to make it from the Theater District to 34th Street. And what if I ran into the Naked Cowboy and had to pose for pictures with every out-of-town Tom, Dick and Harry? Tack on another 30 minutes, easily.
“How ’bout I simply flashed my breasts from a billboard in Times Square and call it a day, will that work?”
Works for me.
It’s a good thing that Gisele didn’t stick to her original career plan of becoming a volleyball player: according to Forbes Magazine, she is the highest paid supermodel and sixteenth richest woman in the world. She endorses just about every high end fashion brand under the sun, and an economist worked out that companies represented by her performed significantly better on the Dow Jones.
Gisele is also noted for her contributions to social activism – she is keen on saving the rainforests, she is helping Bono fight third world poverty and she managed to be labelled ‘Fur Scum’ by PETA for working with a fur farming cooperative. You can’t win’em all.
Spoiler bonus: Gisele’s surname means ‘cuff’ in German. She also enjoys throwing shapes to a pounding techno soundtrack. Eat this, Derek Zoolander:
