Supermodel Xenia Tchoumitcheva Moves to London

Watch out, London, Xenia Tchoumitcheva will make you her new headquarters in June. The Elite Model has announced that she will move to London despite the fact that she hasn’t yet found an appropriate apartment. Most importantly, she moves for career reasons, not love. Men, keep your eyes open! 

Xenia Tchoumitcheva


Xenia Tchoumitcheva was born on the 5th of August 1989. She has been working as a model since the age of 12 and is listed with the Elite Model Agency. In 2006, she was runner-up in the Miss Switzerland contest and won the prestigious Miss Photogenic contest at the same time. The following year, she was listed on place one on the list of the most eligible bachelorettes in Switzerland.

Besides modelling, she is a well liked host in TV shows for the three national Swiss TV stations (one for German speakers, one for Italian speakers, one for French speakers) as she is fluent in all three languages as well as Russian and English. These languages also encouraged her acting career, as she starred in Les Enfant de la Hônte, a French short film directed by Alain Margot in 2007; and besides many other short appearances, she played a part in Without Men in 2011 starring Eva Longoria and Christian Slater.

In 2010, Xenia Tchoumitcheva was embroiled in a rather annoying case of identity fraud on Facebook where someone put up fake pages in her name. She got that sorted out with the help of her fans, but it goes to show how little control Facebook has over what is going on on its pages. Her Slovakian fanclub on Facebook has given her the title of the Swiss Brigitte Bardot, by the way.

In 2011, an impostor struck again. A would-be model claiming to go by the name of Xenia (she later claimed that her real name was Anastasia) appeared on a French reality TV Show called Carre ViiiP laying claim to a CV startlingly similar to Xenia’s with the exception to hailing from Geneva instead of the Ticino region in Switzerland. Xenia issued a denial as to any connection with that show; the issue was never cleanly resolved as the show was dumped after only two weeks; I wish they would do that with all this so called reality shows.

Now Xenia Tchoumitcheva has announced that she will pursue her career in London. If you expect her on stage acting, in a club playing music, or on the catwalk modelling, you’re far off. She is starting to work as an investment banker. This proves that real crime is still paying better than play acting about it. She holds a BA in economics and had done time with Merrill Lynch in 2007.

If you plan to chat her up, you might want to check out her homepage and especially her blog. If you like your blondes dumb, then I would advise you to go look somewhere else.
