A model who appeared on two seasons of America’s Next Top Model and has modelled for big brands like American Apparel says she is struggling to find love because she was born in a male body. Isis King, also known as Isis Tsunami, transitioned in her early twenties and has had full reassignment surgery. The New Yorker was born in a male body, but knew at the age of four that she was different. The 28-year-old says her fame means people instantly know she’s transgender, before she has a chance to reveal her secret herself. Despite her astonishing looks and catwalk body, she says it is difficult to find a gentleman who accepts her and her transition. The 5ft 7” bombshell is also looking for new management to help manage her modelling and makeup career and dreams of becoming an actress.

The only man in the world who can swim with a polar bear
Grizzly man Mark Dumas, 60, is the only man in the world who can touch a polar bear and the only man in the world that can swim with a polar bear. And as these incredible pictures show Grizzly Man, the fearless polar bear handler from Abbotsford, British Columbia, even goes for dip in his swimming pool where he and 16-year-old polar bear Agee enjoy a watery cuddle together. Grizzly Man Mark and wife Dawn, 60, train the 60-stone (800lb) friendly polar bear - the world's largest land predator - to star in high-budget TV adverts. Agee the polar bear has even performed in movies like 'Alaska' in 1995 when she was just a few weeks old. With his incredibly intimate bond Grizzly Man Mark Dumas wrestles on the grass with polar bear Agee, kisses her, puts his head in the polar bear's huge jaws, and even bear hugs her as she rears up on her hind legs to over seven feet. Mark and Dawn have owned Agee since she was six weeks old and the colossal polar bear even lived in their home as a cub where she played with the family dogs and was bottle fed.
