Anchal Joseph

One of the industry's hottest models attended the Universe Weekend in Miami but wasn't competing.  Runway and commercial model superstar Anchal Joseph was the guest of former Model Universe Champion R.L. Bond and said she enjoyed the aura of health and natural fitness and the hundreds of good looking people.   "Since appearing on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 7, I have devoted some time to working with a physical trainer in the hopes of gaining a more toned and defined figure," said Anchal.  "In the show, I was very self-conscious about my figure, which was quite fuller than the other girls."  Hopefully, we will see Anchal on stage at Model America in Las Vegas.

Nick Bateman

He was just 17 years old and was a martial arts performer at the 2004 Universe Weekend in Miami.  But on a whim and with some prodding from his friends, he jumped into the 2004 Model Universe Championships and finished in the Top 5!  Just a high school kid and never having even considered professional or competitive modeling, Nick Bateman beat out over 60 other models that day.  Well sitting in the audience was fashion guru Calvin Klein himself who was immediately struck by Nick's fresh, natural and athletic look and scheduled a test shoot the next day.  Fast forward three months, and Nick left his native Ontario, Canada, and was signed for a modeling campaign in Milan, Italy, and then another in Paris.  Within six months, he had appeared in Seventeen, Teen Prom, YMM, AMX and many other magazines.  Today, Nick is back at college but during weekends, breaks and vacations, he travels to London, Paris, Milan, New York, Toronto, Tokyo and many other fashion centers for fashion photo campaigns and live shows.  Says Nick, "All this stuff is like a dream.  I still keep my footing, a clear head and will finish college.  But to think it all started at Model Universe when I was there just for a karate demo!"
