Scherri-Lee got her big break winning Miss Universe Australia 2011, just a year after Jesinta was crowned 2010 winner.

From there, the pair both ventured into media careers.

Jesinta became a fashion and entertainment reporter for Seven’s The Morning Show, while Scherri-Lee worked for the Melbourne network on sports and travel.

Scherri-Lee continued her broadcasting career by moving to Perth in 2014 to take on a role as a weather presenter and reporter.

Meanwhile, Jesinta continued to focus on her modeling career and was able to raise her profile through a relationship with Sydney Swans star Lance “Buddy” Franklin.

Scherri-Lee is also no stranger to dating footy players as he has been in a relationship with West Coast Eagles player Brad Sheppard for about 18 months.

Sadly, the former couple broke up in late 2019, with Brad moving on with brunette beauty Ellen Taylor-Hawkins.

In 2011, Jesinta starred in the first season of Celebrity Apprentice, finishing third.

In recent years, her modeling career has skyrocketed thanks to her sizable Instagram following and stardom as a leading WAG.

She spent about two years as an ambassador for David Jones, before being dropped by the department store in 2017.

Shortly after, Jesinta took a swipe at the retail giant, saying she was happy to be working with more high-end brands.

“I don’t know if department stores have the budget anymore, to be honest,” she said in 2018, suggesting that David Jones may not be able to afford her.

‘It’s nice not to be locked in one small department store. I’m very happy to be able to work with people like Harrolds and wear the best of the best,” she added.

After breaking up with department stores and brands like Cadbury, Jesinta reinvented her image and was able to sign endorsement deals with companies like Dior and Tiffany & Co.

However, judging by her Instagram page, Jesinta now appears to be working with Myer.
