Jaclyn Shuman was a wild-card at the start of the season on Bravo’s hit new series Summer House.
Still dealing with the aftermath of a bad break-up, she joined the cast for a summer of fun to get her mind off her love split.
It was also a good chance to celebrate the success of her soaring modeling career.
Initially appearing quiet and slightly shy, as the season unfolded she started her let her hair down — with sparks flying between her and Kyle Cooke.
But who is Jaclyn, and what’s her story?
Jaclyn is originally from Texas but made the move to NYC initially to work in fashion design, before moving into fit modeling.
Jaclyn is represented by TRUE Model Management — where you can check out pictures on her profile page — and she has worked for all sorts of big names, from Marc Jacobs Swimwear to Ralph Lauren, Helmut Lang and Uniqlo.
But she hadn’t always dreamt of being a model. From 2003 to 2007 she studied a B.Sc. in Apparel Design. She went on to work as a design assistant and associate for clothing brands Golden Touch and Club Monaco.
In May 2012 she then began working for Italian fashion firm AEFFA SpA as an account executive working with Jean Paul Gaultier and Fuzzi.
Jaclyn posts loads of great pictures of herself on Instagram, where she has more than 6,000 followers. Her profile shows her love for her family and for travelling, and also features pics of her Summer House co-stars.
She also posts about her co-stars on the show on her Twitter.
