The Inertia

Professional surfing has officially met reality television. Santa Barbara surfer and plus-size model Bo Stanley has bridged the gap, and she will be featured on the ABC hit series, “The Bachelor.” Stanley will be one of the thirty women fighting for the affections of Chris Soules.

Stanley competed on the WQS for a number of years, at her best reaching #12 in the series. However, in recent years she has moved beyond competition to pursue a career as a plus-size model. The California beauty was featured as a Curvy Icon in Vogue Italia in addition to her role as an ambassador for Healthy is the New Skinny. Bo can be also be seen in major campaigns for companies like Kohls.


Only the best. We promise.
