    I honestly think many models apply to agencies by themselves and thus aren't "discovered" in the original sense. But the agencies like to make up stories about discoveries because that does sound much more interesting.

    Lieve Dannau's friend sent her pictures to Elite Chile (mother agency) and they called her a few months later.

    Didn't Lindsey have a profile on Models.com and Meisel found her on it?

    I think she was already with an agency at the time. But Meisel made her career by shooting her the first time.

    I remember hearing Ali was scouted and told to enter the competition which she then won.

    Jess PW was a finalist of the Girlfriend Model Search in 2012, but Chic did not sign her. A year later she signed to Vivien's.

    Leila Goldkuhl was a finalist (3rd place) on the 19th season of America's Next top Model. Pre show she was already modeling, but was getting work on her own, with no agency. After the show, she said she had many offers, so went to NYC to sign with an agency, and ended up signing with NEXT models.
