Natalie Ann Pack (born 1989)[1] is an American fashion model[2] who held the title of Miss California USA 2012.[3] She is also known for competing on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 12.[4]

Early life[edit]

Pack was born and raised in Palos Verdes, California. She currently lives in Newport Beach, California and attended the University of California, Irvine,[5] where she is on the Dean's List.[4] In 2012 Pack interned at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian and hoped to go to medical school to become an OBGYN.[3]

In 2005, Pack appeared in an episode of The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan.[citation needed]

America's Next Top Model[edit]

At the age of 19, Pack was selected as a finalist for cycle 12 of America's Next Top Model. During her time in the competition, she won a runway challenge and had two second callouts. She also did not receive a makeover because host Tyra Banks believed she looked modelesque as she was.

Pack was the eighth contestant eliminated from the competition and the first to be eliminated abroad in Sao Paulo, Brazil after a photo shoot where the contestants emulated the late Carmen Miranda. Judges Miss J. Alexander and Fernanda Motta believed that she looked "exhausted" and that "the sparkle was missing" in Pack's photo, despite Pack's insistence that Jay Manuel was complimentary of her photos.[6]

Following her elimination from America's Next Top Model, Pack signed to Ford Models in Los Angeles and is currently signed with NEXT Model Management in Miami.[2] She has modeled for Jockey International and BL!SSS magazine. She has also walked for Billabong and Dona Daneshi. In 2015, she was featured in ads for Guess.

Miss California USA[edit]

Pack participated in the Miss California USA pageant as "Miss Hoag Hospital",[7] where she was interning while attending University of California, Irvine. Despite never having participated in any previous beauty pageants, Pack won the title.[5] She competed in the Miss USA 2012 competition on June 3, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and failed to place, ending California's seven-year streak of consecutive placements in Miss USA, from 2005 through 2011.

Personal life[edit]

In September 2017, Pack became engaged to boyfriend, actor Aaron O'Connell.[8] On July 21, 2018, Natalie and Aaron O'Connell were married in Italy.[9]
