Christy Nelson was one of the 12 finalists on Season 1 of The Face, who was a member of Team Karolina.


Christy is a confident, self-proclaimed nerd from a small town in California. A history buff who loves all things vintage and swing dancing, she was instantly mesmerized with the industry after being selected to model for a local store when she was 13-years-old. As the daughter of a minister, her parents were leery about her becoming involved in the modeling world. However, with modelling as her only form of income, she is determined to make it in Los Angeles and knows “The Face” would not only launch her career, but change her life.
