Marjorie is a 19 year old student living in San Francisco, California. She spent her childhood years in Marseilles, France, and then moved to America when she was 9 years old. It is also interesting to note that Marjorie did not apply to Top Model on her own... she was approached in a book store by a representative of the show who asked her to audition. Let's hope that doesn't go to her head too much and leave her thinking that she is better than everyone else because they saw her first.
You can see right away that Marjorie is a bit off-beat. I think she seems intelligent, but it's possible that she will turn out to be extremely annoying as well. For one thing, she rambles endlessly in her video, skipping from topic to topic. Another thing I could see being annoying is if she mentions her French background and cultural depth a million times.
As for her look, Marjorie is so incredibly thin. She has a cute pixie haircut, so it will be interesting to see what the makeover will bring for her, but her face in the portfolio pic is stunning. In the hippie pic.. not so much. She is looking away from the camera too much and you can barely see her face at all. Maybe she was going for a wistful look, but to me she just looks bored.
I expect Marjorie to be the one who stands out in this cycle as the "weird" one. I have a feeling that even though she preaches tolerance and cultural adaptability, she will end up talking down to people and pissing them off. I guess we'll see!
