Maya Espenson | 25 | Receptionist | FC: Meghan Markle | Open
Maya believes in doing what’s right. She trusts herself and has more faith in herself than others but she tends to develop close friendships. At times she can be indecisive because of her doubtfulness.
Maya grew up in Lakeville, Minnestoa through a wealthy family. She never had to do chores when she was 11 and she never had to get a job when she was 16. With enough money flowing around Maya spent her time giving advice to her friends and going to the latest Friday night parties. Not all of her friends were genuine though. Once she caught a couple of her friends stealing her mother’s jewelry. Instead of saying anything she let it be knowing that her mother could buy new ones anyways. Knowing that she was surrounded by many fake friends reminded her that having everything handed to you isn’t that great. It began to annoy her. Whenever she went to do her laundry the maid told her that was her job. All of it was bottled inside her and she decided to pick up her things and leave.
The thought of New York City attracted her. It was a busy city full of people who were willing to do whatever it takes to make a name for themselves. Which was exactly what she wanted to do. Maya wasn’t quite sure what she wanted to do so she applied for jobs that were low level in big businesses. A high end magazine called her letting her know that they wanted her as a receptionist. She got the job but a few months later she overheard one of her co-workers complaining about how Maya only got the job because of her rich parents. Apparently her parents had called the magazine and bribed them to give her the job under the table. Maya loves her new job and wouldn’t quit but in essence she’s right back where she started. She would now more than ever, love to prove to herself that she can do so much more in the business world.

Jessica Ruth | 23 | Ballerina | FC: Brittany Snow | OPEN
Jessica has a hard time conveying her feelings and uses dance to do so. Due to her lack of social experiences she comes off as socially awkward, guarded and can be rude but once you get to know her you can see how sweet she actually is.
Unlike other kids when growing up Jessica always seemed to be in class. She never really noticed this until 8th grade when all her friends were at water parks and theme parks during the summer. Where was she? Jessica was always in the dance class either sitting down to tie her shoes or on the barré practicing her pliés. She didn’t mind it though, it kept her mind off things and express herself. Even though her body would ache after long weekends of competition and her feet would look horrendous considering all of the blisters on them. Jessica didn’t have many friends anymore, she didn’t have time for them, she spent all her time at dance.
When her dad got laid off Jessica’s parents started worrying about the cost of things. They no longer had enough money for the big house they had and if that wasn’t bad enough they could barely afford Jessica’s dance lessons. If Jessica wanted to go to college her parents knew they would have to back off on lessons. Jessica worked up enough courage to tell her dance teacher, knowing how embarrassing of a situation her family was in. Her teacher told her about scholarships for college and if she kept up the hard work in dance class then she could afford college. Her parents took a risk and spent all her college savings on dance classes. Thankfully senior year Jessica got an acceptance letter to one of the best dance schools in the state, Julliard. After graduating from Julliard Jessica now has to decide what she wants to do with her life.
Gabriella Tate || Gabriella and Jessica are close friends who went to the same ballet school as teenagers. They spent many nights together at hotels the night before their dance competitions but as time flew by, things changed. Jessica feels bad for Gabriella because she went on to be a stripper and she knows that Gabriella could be accomplishing so much more in her life.
Kyle Chapman || Kyle throws himself out there for Jessica to notice that he likes her when it is already obvious as it is. She doesn’t like being around him because he acts as if she loves the guy, which is false. Truth is, Jessica isn’t ready to love and never will be with a guy such as Kyle.
Nick Hendricks || Nick is yet another of the number of men who try to charm Jessica except Nick is actually easy to tolerate. Nick can be a little eccentric at times but she knows he only means well. Jessica loves being around Nick because everything about him is funny. She knows he always means well but for now he can only dream.
Jake Barker | 24 | Model | FC: Zac Efron | OPEN
Jake is the type of gentleman that only comes once in a lifetime; The type that gives hope for women with high standards. He’ll shower you with compliments and welcome you with the warm feeling that is hospitality — which is probably why he tends to be very lucky with the ladies. Jake had grown used to the attention given by many girls, and admittedly he loves the feeling. Guys are usually jealous but too stubborn to admit it, and instead keep quiet and marvel at his skillfulness. Jake can be manipulative and disloyal especially when it comes to his modeling life verses his old life.
Jake grew up in the uptown of Manhattan, otherwise known as the ghetto side of Manhattan. Jake didn’t necessarily hang out with the better influenced kids either. By the ninth grade, drugs, alcohol and sex were all a normal part of his life. He would come home late at night smelling like corn nuts, only to cover up the stench of weed on his breathe. His grades weren’t good and his worried parents weren’t sure what to do. Jake’s parents sent him to a private school, his sophomore year, for disciplinary actions. He hated it, the first couple of months were hell for him. All the kids he met were snobby rich kids, and his parents wouldn’t let him hang out or even call his old friends. Being the loner sucked for him. Slowly but surely, his parents got exactly what they wanted, Jake started to become friends with the snobs, and he started doing better in school. But this was all just an act, there was still and old part of Jake in him.
Time went by and junior year came around. One of his “friends” was in a some kind of a fashion design class and needed a model for their semi annual year fashion show, to model their clothes. Jake scoffed and made gay jokes about modeling in his head, but on the outside he smiled and agreed. Senior year, he did the same and everyone annoyed Jake with compliments of how good he was in the show. Jake shrugged it off without knowing that he was actually pretty good. But, when senior year ended and his parents were making him find out what he wanted to do with his life. His mom mentioned modeling, part of him was actually curious about the modeling world and the other half wanted to agree just to get his parent’s to stop nagging him. He agreed to modeling and grew a liking to it. He started to get more and more modeling jobs through the months, and had earned enough money to buy his own place. Moving out meant freedom, which is exactly what Jake had wanted and needed since before the whole private school thing. Jake is starting to develop a renewed liking to his old ways, but will he stop for the sake of his career?
Nick Hendricks: Nick was once Jake’s best friend in the private high school he went to when they weren’t quite well known. As soon as Jake got more known around town, he felt that Nick was too strange to be around so he kept a distance.
Haley Kahn: Haley and Jake are on bad terms considering they’re exes who broke up over trust issues. They despise each other for no logical reason and are too stubborn to talk it out for closure. They see each other often but can’t look each other in the eye.
Jenna Davis: Without Jenna’s help Jake probably wouldn’t be where he is today. The two worked at the same coffee shop in high school and talked about their futures all the time. Jenna wanted to recruit models to help them get into the most luxurious brands and Jake wanted to be a model, the two went hand in hand. When Jake got out of high school he was still stuck at the coffee shop with Jenna it wasn’t until Jenna got a talent scouting job at her family’s company that Jake got lucky enough to get his dream job.

Zachary Dalton | 22 | Student/Model | FC: Max Irons | Open
Self-proclaimed “Zach” Dalton was born and raised in the meager parts of Detroit, Michigan with a stay-at-home mom and a dad that worked hard hours as a cashier at the local drug store. While Zachary didn’t quite have two dimes to rub together, he always reminded himself that being surrounded by people whom he loved was all he ever really needed. His parents never worried much about Zach as a child because he naturally made friendships with everyone at school and exceptional grades—which makes it safe to say that they had taught him well for parents who couldn’t provide much. In return, Zachary promised himself he would try and grow up to become someone his parents would be proud of. He had the brain and, surely enough, the confidence, so why not? The only obstacle Zach had ever faced was deciding his future when financial issues would always contradict it. However, through scholarships and many recommendations, he’d successfully made his way into Fordham University in New York City to study business.
Despite how excited Zach had gotten over the idea of moving to the big city, the farthest he’d ever traveled was from Michigan to Indiana — just a state away. Zachary had never flown on a plane or even ridden in a train, so moving to New York was a risky step to take. His parents supported his new journey nonetheless, and it was at the young age of nineteen when he first step foot on the busy streets of New York. Zach managed to wedge in an apartment with the little money he had and began the routine of business school early in the morning, working at Starbucks in the afternoon, and studying at night. Two years later Zach took the opportunity to become a model for the IMG New York agency when he was found walking around Central Park by an agent and is now considered on the rise in the modeling industry.
Most would consider Zach to be very approachable due to his generous demeanor. He would give a homeless man the change in his pocket if it meant he could do even the slightest to help. Zach is more than willing to listen and give advice, which brings a whole lot of people his way. Of course, his kindness only makes girls that much more attracted to him and his good looks are just a plus. Every now and again you could find Zach chatting it up at a bar and it’s almost as if he doesn’t have to try when it comes to girls, although one night stands are moreso of his “thing” than actual dating. Despite this kind personality Zach tends to put on, no one is perfect. Most of the time he chooses to live with the fact that he’s unhappy with himself and his career. He is determined to get the the top, but balancing school and modeling can be a challenge and it certainly messes with his head as well as his priorities.
Chanel Everson: In Zach’s mind, Chanel doesn’t have a very good reason to hate him as much as she does. But the two have gone neck and neck for many modeling opportunities, and Zachary usually gets more on the scoreboard, which the spoiled Chanel simply cannot stand for. They’re a very competitive duo and will do anything it takes to get to the top of the modeling industry.
Ryan Wilson: Ryan tends to pick on Zach, unafraid to tell him that he’s a goodie two shoes. But it is as expected, considering Ryan’s immature demeanor. Zach tries to ignore it and make amends for not meeting his standards, but lately things are changing and Zach is close to giving up on being mature and passive.
Abbey Bradford: Saying that models are constantly tired is an understatement, and it can also be hard to escape the thoughts of not being good enough. Zach goes to Abbey whenever he needs some cheering up, and secretly for the mean root beer floats that she makes.
Ryan Wilson | 22 | Model | FC: Daniel Sharman | Taken
Regardless of all the annoyance he causes, he is also nothing short of a guy who will have your back as a friend. If you’re a stranger, he won’t have a problem being talkative and easygoing unless there’s a problem in between.
Although he frequently makes stupid mistakes due to the filter he does not have, his charm can be quite hard to resist. There will be days where it’s obvious that Ryan has a heart, as odd as that may seem for such a guy like him.
Growing up in St. Louis Missouri, stardom was one of the last things that ran through Ryan Wilson’s mind. All that mattered to him in high school was his social status and the reputation he had for himself, he was known around school for being your typical jock, obnoxious in many ways. He was a footballer in which lots of attention was given, so quite obviously he was popular in school. Once you’re popular, you grow mean- and think highly of yourself which is exactly still the case for Ryan. However, his looks and girls weren’t the only thing he cared much about. Ryan was an only child who lived with his parents, but his dad was one who took part as a surgeon for the Navy; they did not get to see each other much, so he treasured every time they were together, even if it wasn’t for long. His father would give the best advice, telling him to strive for the best, even if you have nothing.
The advice was taken seriously as Ryan neared toward the end of senior year, his grades on the report card were definitely something to be proud of. By 18, Ryan’s dad passed away while driving back home from the airport for a visit, it was a sudden rush and it left Ryan and his mom devastated for a long period of time. His grades dropped and he just didn’t have the ability to care anymore. He dropped sports and barely said a word in class. He managed to get by during the very end, graduation just barley grazing him. He didn’t attend college because once again, he didn’t care for it; but as time passed, he wanted to find a way out of it and a way to make his mom happy, dullness wasn’t a choice anymore. He was discovered by an agent at the local mall with his friends, and by far he was the only one that stood out. As soon as possible he was signed to a modeling agency in New York and made enough money off of campaigns and a side job to provide for his mother back at home. From life in dull Missouri where the memories linger, to the fast life in New York, Ryan has found a way to let go and strive for the best even when he had nothing at one point.
Parker Davis || Parker and Ryan are the oddest pair of best friends, not that they look odd together, but they’re just different. They love each other more than they should and there’s a true bromance that sparks between them because they are inseparable. They don’t share the same occupation but they are similar in lifestyle and personality. The two are both obnoxious as can be, which is why they are so close.
Ivy Becker || These two act as if they’re mortal enemies stuck in Kindergarten. They consider themselves brother and sister but have more hatred for each other than what’s normal. There is no sorted out reason as to why they’re so rude to each other, but all in all they have the decency to be able to withstand.
Abbey Bradford || Abbey isn’t very fond of Ryan, which is what triggers him the most. He will try to befriend her but there’s something in his personality that she doesn’t want anything to do with. Abbey confuses him from time to time probably because he is used to girls falling under his spell which doesn’t work for her.
Zachary Dalton || A goodie two shoes who should be living at home with his mom. Ryan always picks on Zach for being so kind.
