Early life[edit]

Born to English parents, Karen and Derek (Born 1959) and she has two older brothers Richard (born 1985) and James (born 1987) [1],[2], Cook has been working as a model since age 15.[1] A biology student and sales associate in Kriens, she's also an avid sportswoman, practicing athletics and inline skating.[2] She's been dating FC Luzern player Silvan Büchli since 2007.[3]

Miss Switzerland 2010[edit]

Cook, who stands 1.80 m (5 ft 11 in) tall, competed as one of the 12 finalists in her country's national beauty pageant, Miss Switzerland, held in Zürich, where she obtained the Photogenic award[2] and the crown of Miss Schweiz, gaining the right to represent Switzerland in the 2011 Miss Universe pageant, broadcast live from São Paulo, Brazil on 12 September 2011.[4]

Prior to finals night, Cook discovered her grandmother in Cambridge had a cancer recurrence, and would have to undergo chemotherapy. Unable to travel to England, Cook dedicated her participation in Miss Switzerland to her.[5]
