She may have been a fi­nal­ist on Aus­tralia’s Next Top Model, but it will shock view­ers to learn that ac­cord­ing to Izzy, she’s too over­weight to work as a model here Down Un­der.

“In a lot of ways I’m just not skinny enough,” she tells New Idea. “They want girls smaller than me. Aus­tralia’s a re­ally weird mar­ket; it’s very com­mer­cial.”

The 28-year-old works mostly as a model over­seas af­ter find­ing the Aus­tralian modelling scene too over­whelm­ing.

“Af­ter Top Model I moved to Syd­ney and was modelling full-time but it was just so much work to get the jobs and it’s so ex­pen­sive,” she ex­plains. “It was re­ally, re­ally, re­ally stress­ful. I work more in modelling when I’m over­seas and then when I’m here I work in film be­hind the scenes do­ing props and set dec­o­ra­tion.”
