Why She’s a Semifinalist: She’s a veteran model at the Campbell Agency, but she’s not all about pink things and glitter. She’s a mom of twin sons. “It’s perfect that I have boys,” she says. “I don’t know what I would do with girly girls.” Foster is an athlete at heart, enjoying the outdoors, jogging, tennis, and water sports — she pretty much lives in her workout clothes. That doesn’t mean she doesn’t have her guilty pleasures, and she counts junk food at the top of that list. Snuffer’s cheese fries, chocolate cake, and cookie dough shakes are her favorites. A typical Saturday night involves hanging out with her girlfriends or watching sports at home with her family. Their team of choice is Baylor, where she met her husband and her parents met each other.
