Model Camille Kostek Visits Kangaroo Island, Australia, For ‘Sports Illustrated’ Rookie Of The Year Shoot
Model Camille Kostek traveled down under this summer to Kangaroo Island, Australia, where she shot sun-kissed pictures for Sports Illustrated Rookie of the Year edition. Kostek, along with fellow model Haley Kalil, were both named winners from the rookie model class of 2019.
Kostek scored her first solo cover of Sports Illustrated in February. She also started the trend of the nationwide Instagram movement “#nevernotdancing,” encouraging girls and women to break into random dance and take chances while learning to have more self-confidence.
The former New England Patriot’s cheerleader and entertainment reporter was born and raised in Killingworth, Connecticut, where she was one of four children. Seeking adventure outside of her small hometown, she entered the first-ever SI Swimwear Model casting on Instagram — and won. At age 27, Kostek embraced her new career.
She is dating Patriots player Rob Gronkowski. She wants the world to know that the two didn’t connect until after she left the Patriots. (Cheerleader are forbidden from dating players.) “We first got in touch once I resigned from the team,” Kostek told Fox News.
