Her name is Doutzen ;)

I just don’t get it. Gisele Bündchen is a dog. Oh and that HUGE HONKING nose. The woman has no curves! People like her body? EWW! She looks like a thin guy with long hair. Actually, I’ve seen better looking drag queens and trannies. Look, the ladies at the end of the list are much prettier and curvier than Gisele Bündchen, so why is she making so much? I wouldn’t buy a damn thing she’s representing and I wouldn’t look twice at her if she walked by. On the other hand Heidi Klum is rocking a much better body. She actually has breasts & hips and she should be making more money than Gisele Bündchen. She actually looks like a woman! Yeah a woman, not a some thin guy with long hair. GEEZ.

JK on

Wow, Lisa bitter?

Jealous is a disease, get well soon!

Marsha on

Lisa,

Eat your heart out…It doesn’t matter what you think. She can be a dog but much richer and certainly smarter and prettier than you. She is making millions and you??
Sure, you don’t get it.. you probably live in a different planet.

Helena on

You may not get it, Lisa, but I doubt Gisele really cares about your oinion when she’s earning millions as the worlds top supermodel. There are obviously a lot of people who disagree with you.

eric on

Adriana Lima is the hottest supermodel out there! She’s beautiful and has a nice body too. Basically, she’s the whole package. Gisele is not your typical beauty but she does have a great body- she earns so much money because she knows how to “use” her height and great proportions to her advantage.

Rachel on

WOW Lisa, why so much hating on your heart?
hope the jealous don’t consume you.

K.O on

hey Lisa.. i guess ,you can only wish to have a body like Gisele B. Erning so much money ,could mean something. Don’t you think? She has something in plus ,smth odd (maybe her nose, as you said) which is good in their world. I hope,as Rachel said:”the jealous don’t consume you.”

Ralph on

Wow! I’m so happy that so many ppl are backing Gisele on Lisa’s bitterness.

I agree with Helena! Gisele wouldn’t careless with these kind of stuff!

LBW on

Heidi is prettier and she has personality. She smiles and she laughs. Gisele always looks so solemn, like a walking mannequin.

[…] and Heidi top the highest-paid models list: Off the Cuff var […]

Joanie on

No need to attack Lisa for what she believes just because it’s negative. She probably could have said it more lightly but whatever. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and no one is perfect. We don’t need to be attacking each other. I hate seeing personal attacks.
I read somewhere that Gisele makes so much not necessarily because she is the hottest/most beautiful, but she works very very hard, does a lot of shoots,etc. Hard work pays off!
They are all beautiful! :)

Kathleen on

She is so lucky!! She has Tom Brady!!

newlywedemt on

modeling is very hard work…it isn’t just being pampered & having your hair/makeup done…they ALL work hard, and deserve the huge payoffs!

dawn on

Gisele Bundchen is a pretty woman but that picture of her is horrible nothing sexy about her in that picture.

cali on

i’m sorry, but i really dont think gisele is that pretty either. Whether she cares or not… beauty is not subjective. There are many different concepts of what makes a woman beautiful. She is just simply not my idea. Now, with that said im sure their are others that do think she’s pretty, but Lisa is entitled to her own opinion. Oh, i also must agree with the guy who said adrianna lima was beautiful. She’s stunning.

Danny on

Adriana Lima is overrated. Her features are a bit wonky and she has bad teeth.

Jennifer on

Giselle isn’t pretty.

valeria kozak on

Gisele is not a conventional beauty, but she has something going on for her. Besides Leo Dicaprio and Tom Brady can not be completely blind.
I think she is very LUCKY, and I would give one arm/leg to be in her shoes.

The Wrestler on

Both Gisele and Heidi are extremely beautiful women. Do you think they would be paid that much if they weren’t?

Amanda on

I think all of the supermodels that are listed in Forbes are gorgeous and well deserving of the money they get paid. Adrina and Miranda are my two favorite models, but all of them are beautiful.

sdfsdfg on

wow, why is everyone jumping on Lisa? she’s right! heidi IS better than gisele in every way!

Lucy on

I think Gisele is Beautiful! She deserves to be on the top of that list….and, as you can see, it’s not exactly a close race.

benjie256 on

ummm wow lisa i think its this pick that makes her look a little funny she is pretty jus that hair style an outfit jus makes her look a little weird nothing mayjor

Mandi on

Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes, and Alessandra Ambrosio are waaaaay better looking than Gisele. Gisele looks bitter and stiff and her body is unrealistic. I don’t hate her but I don’t find her to be attractive..at all.
