Being a model is more hard work than you might think. You are constantly putting yourself out there, essentially letting yourself been seen and (hopefully) admired by many wandering eyes as you make a name for yourself in a competitive business. And when you're a model, or especially when you're a model, you're always hoping you don't wind up getting your public imagine compromised in the process. But there are always factors that seek to destroy you.
Like pigs, for instance. Literal pigs -- in this particular case, at least. And Michelle Lewin recently had the misfortune of learning this lesson the hard way. As the model showcased on Instagram, she was bitten by a pig during a recent model outing. And it resulted in a traumatic-yet-humorous situation. Here's the footage of the biting incident.
The footage was posted on Instagram by Michelle Lewin herself, which suggests that she hopefully has a sense of humor about this awkward occurrence. The Venezuelan model was certainly concerned in the moment, as it was made clear by the footage when she was on the beach involved with a photo shoot of some variety when a wild pig made its way up to her and bit her directly on the bikini-covered bottom, and the bite certainly took the model by surprise when it occurred. Based on the video description and the way she was able to laugh it off after it happened, however, Lewin has a cheeky sense of humor about the animal incident.
Sometimes, in a situation as absurd as this one, you have to take a step back and laugh. It's so strange and unexpected that you have to admit as much and giggle with the circumstances. Thankfully, it appears that Michelle Lewin wasn't seriously hurt by the animal-to-human interaction, and she is making light of the whole thing on social media. In the unpredictable world of modeling, you often find yourself in unconventional situations. And this is most certainly one of them.
There's no denying that being a professional model can be a real pain in the ass. And you have to deal with a lot of pigs too. That was literally the case when it comes to Michelle Lewin's recent photo shoot, as she had the misfortune of discovering the hard way in the midst of interacting with the wild animals on the beach.
Hopefully, future modeling gigs treat Michelle Lewin better than this one did. Especially since Lewin ended up the butt of the joke with this particular one. Thankfully, however, she appears to be taking it in stride, and it will result in a great story someday too.
