It seems no one is immune to the GFC – not even supermodel Jennifer Hawkins. Her contract with Channel 7 expired this month and she has been trying to hammer out a new deal with the network for the past couple of months. She’s been with Seven since 2004 and was rumoured to be raking in $700,000-$1 million a year, but she's waving buh-bye to the big paycheck and tightening her belt just like the rest of us.
She hosted the one-off show Make Me A Supermodel and was also a reporter on a few episodes of The Great Outdoors but hasn’t had a regular gig in awhile. She reportedly fielded offers from other networks but decided to stay with Seven, who have promised to develop a project just for her in exchange for a major pay cut.
