Early life

Nationality: American, Japanese

Sullivan was born to Michael and Gayle Sullivan and has three siblings, Bridgette, Jimmy, and Mikey. She is a graduate of Lake Forest High School and attended Ripon College where she majored in government and chemical biology and was a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority. She also trains in mixed martial arts with her husband, Sam Alvey. She was known for appearing at the Bristol Renaissance Faire, which inspired her medieval fashion sense. Sullivan got into modeling when she tried out for Elite Model Look following a sports injury and won the regional division of the competition.

America’s Next Top Model

At the age of 19, Sullivan was the eighth contestant to be selected to participate on the eleventh cycle of America’s Next Top Model against thirteen other contestants, ultimately winning the competition. Two other contestants named Brittany (or some variation) also competed in the same Cycle, so whilst Brittany Rubalcaba kept her first name, Sullivan and Brittney (later going by “Sharaun”) Brown changed their names for the show. Sullivan chose “McKey” since her Mother was considering naming her McKenzie when she was born and since it was her penname in high school. She plans on continuing to use the name beyond this television season. Sullivan came into the competition with shoulder-length bright red hair however that was changed to short black hair during the makeovers. Over her stay, Sullivan became one of the front-runners, winning two challenges, receiving two first call-outs and never placed below fifth. During the go-see challenge in Amsterdam, Sullivan was booked by all of the four designers that she met, although she was disqualified from the challenge when she returned to the agency outside of the time limit and lost to Analeigh Tipton who was booked by all of the three designers that she met. Sullivan would have won this challenge had she been on time. She went on to beat Samantha Potter for the title. Sullivan became the second winner to never have a bottom two appearance, with Jaslene Gonzalez being the first. This record was succeeded by Nicole FoxKrista WhiteSophie SumnerJourdan Miller and India Gants. As part of the ANTM prize package awarded to her, Sullivan appeared on the cover of Seventeen Magazine with a 6-page editorial and received a contract with CoverGirl cosmetics and a contract for representation with Elite Model Management. She will be featured in Wal-Mart campaign, as well as in the national CoverGirl campaign ads. Her win also comprises a billboard in Times Square.
