As frockwriter reported on January 1st, Nicole Trunfio is said to be currently seeing in the New Year in a Byron Bay beachhouse with fellow Perth native Gemma Ward. And Trunfio has lots of reasons to celebrate this January, having just scored no less than the model mentor gig of the US version of Make Me A Supermodel. According to a press release from the Bravo tv network, Trunfio is due to join host Tyson Beckford in the show’s second season, replacing the first season's female model mentor and co-host, high profile US model Niki Taylor. Other new faces to join Trunfio in the second series include designer Catherine Malandrino and model Jenny Shimizu.

Although relatively low profile in the US, Trunfio is nevertheless no stranger to the television genre, having won Australia's Search For A Supermodel in 2002.

Trunfio later went on to win third place in Ford's Supermodel of the World 2002.

Like Ward, Trunfio is also repped by IMG in the US, the world’s biggest model agency - and an agency with more than its fair share of media connections.

Given the intense competition, it’s a pretty amazing get.

Congratulations Nicole.
