Supermodel Kelsey Merritt can add Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model to her rapidly increasing list of credits. Merritt is one of several beauties who have made the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2019 rookie class. She joins New England Patriots cheerleader Camille Kostek, plus size model Hunter McGrady and Bret Michaels’ daughter Raine Michael. Kelsey auditioned for the magazine this past October saying,

“I really want to be a Sports Illustrated model because I love how confident the models are and I want to show everyone who is looking at these pictures and reading the magazine that they can also be confident in their own skin.”

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue is scheduled to come out in May.

Merritt also shared several behind the scenes videos of her photoshoot for Sports Illustrated on her Instagram Account.


Actress and model Levy Tran will join the cast of CBSMacGyver this month. In the recurring role, Tran will play Denise Nguyen, “who joins the Phoenix Foundation to protect MacGyver (Lucas Till) and his team on their global missions” according to Deadline.

Late last year, George Eads who plays Jack Dalton on MacGyver, reportedly asked to be released from his contract to return to Los Angeles to be closer to his daughter. However, his resignation also came after reports of an altercation during the production of an episode of MacGyver. Tran’s role will fill the void of Eads’ character.

If Levy Tran’s character is successful and MacGyver is renewed for a fourth season, CBS will have the option of making her role a series regular.  Tran’s debut on MacGyver will be on the February 15th episode.
