Of course reality TV fanatics will know Gabrielle Kagay from season 19 of America's Next Top Model (she went by her first name Kristin). But since then the dyed-in-the-wool Floridian/beach bum has signed with hot new agency The Lions, the same outfit that represents Anne V., Irina Shaykand Sara Sampaio, as well as a handful of our former models. We think it's safe to say that this girl's in good company.
