Episode summary: Clarissa Burt has achieved a lot from being a supermodel to being on the game show “Survivor”, and being a producer. She wasn’t born into the spotlight and worked against everything she was taught.
Coming from a home with abuse and alcohol, they were taught that children are to be seen, not heard. Clarissa sang in the school play in kindergarten and she was hooked. She felt seen and heard on stage.
From there, she kept getting on stage with plays and even landed a modeling gig in New York. They sent her to do some work in Paris but she was homesick and decided to come home. Quitting modeling, she became a temporary secretary.
They had sent her to Revlon. Looking at all the modeling photos, she knew she messed up and was willing to do whatever it takes to get back into modeling.
She saved up all her money from this temp job, booked a one-way ticket to Europe, met with an Italian Agent, and before she knew it, her picture was in the hall at Revlon.
