No, she was discovered by a designer in her native Dominican Republic who sent her photos to an agency. She signed with them and her career blew up weeks later. Hers really is a 'Cinderella story'.

Does being on a competition mean that a model wasn't discovered? I mean, maybe some were also discovered by someone & let them enter the competition.

Exactly. It does not mean that models were not discovered by someone.

Lindsey Wixson went to an agency.
Sigrid won the French Elite Model Look contest in 2006,
and Constance Jablonski came in as runner up in the same year.
And Arlenis Sosa apparently went to many many different agencies that would hire her.

Sasha wasn't exactly "discovered". Her photographer boyfriend (now husband) sent pictures of her to IMG. Alice Burdeu won Australia's Next Top Model. Ali Michael won a modeling contest. Anja Rubik entered a modeling contest but then was scouted so I'm not sure if that counts. Charlotte Calypso won a modeling contest. Constance and Denisa entered a modeling contest. Dorothea won Elite model look and Eniko won Elite model look.

It's a bit odd really. I know she won the GIRLFRIEND magazine coversearch, and then she moved to Sydney at some time, after she finished high school I assume? And she got scouted on a beach? But she had some Australian chainstore campaign after the model search so I'm sure she would have been with an agency, maybe she was scouted by a different one? I don't really understand it.

^well maybe, she was discovered on a beach by an organizer of an event and then won the competition.

Also, the GIRLFRIEND magazine coversearch seems to discover models that actually make it in the real modeling industry. Cat Mcneil won it also, right?

^She was discovered on a beach at 15 and entered the competition at 17. I'm not sure when they finish high school in Melbourne, but in a lot of Australia it's 17 so she may have finished before the competition.
Alyssa Sutherland, Samatha Harris, Pania Rose, Ruby Rose and Cat McNeil were all finalists or won the Girlfriend competition too. I don't think anyone from the competition has hit it big since Abbey though. Miranda Kerr was discovered in the Dolly magazine competition.

She later went on to win the Australian 2004 Girlfriend Model Search. After high school, in 2005, she moved from Melbourne to Sydney to begin modeling. She lived 100 meters from the beach and it was while at the beach where she got scouted by Chic Management's Kathy Ward.

Isabeli Fontana, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lindsey Wixson and Chanel Iman all applied for modelling. I read on Wikipedia and also in interviews on Youtube.

^ Not true, Isabeli was discovered while having lunch with her mom in Brazil. Isabeli thought about being a model and was interested. In that same year Elite Model Look took place in Brazil and Sergio Mattos; owner of 40 graus models called her grandma up to convince Isabeli to participate. She went and ended up with the 3 finalists and went to the finals in Nice, France.
