Who is Brookell? Funny and witty model joins 'Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer'
When 'Joe Millionaire' first premiered back in 2003, the reality dating show's controversial plotline piqued the interest of the audience. A blue-collar worker pretending to be a millionaire while looking for love grabbed everybody's eyeballs. But the show's popularity took a dip after the pilot season as everybody became familiar with the storyline. So, after a hiatus of 19 long years, the dating show is all set to make a comeback with some major changes including the show name- 'Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer'.
Instead of one bachelor, there will be two bachelors looking for love. While one of them is a real millionaire, the other isn't. The eighteen beautiful women competing on the show will woo these men without knowing who is rich and who isn't. In the end, we'll get to see whether love trumps over money.

Who is Brookell?
Brookell is a 30-year-old model and singer from Los Angeles California. This beautiful model was born in Albany, Georgia, and is of Sri Lankan and African American decent. Brookell began modeling at an early age. In an interview with Rolling Out, she revealed how her mother, who is also a model, used to take pictures of Brookell with different items around the house so that she could send them to the brands. She however claims to have gotten her big break only after she moved to Florida and signed up with an agency and began booking various jobs.
Her Instagram page is filled with various professionally shot photographs and some candid selfies too feature on her page occasionally. Although Brookell makes it looks effortless and easy in her pictures, the model, however, claims that being a model is pretty hard contrary to what many people might think. She explained, "The biggest misconception is that anyone can be a model. I don’t mean to sound harsh but just because you are tall, pretty, or take nice pictures for Instagram, does not mean you are meant to be a model. Nowadays, anyone that takes a picture claims to be a model. It’s not that simple." "Brands often realize this once they book the “Instagram Models” and they see that they don’t know what to do or how to pose. Then they end up having to reshoot and it’s always the same story, “Well she took pretty pictures on Instagram, I thought she knew how to model.” No, if you want quality work, book a model. Models put a lot into their craft. We study poses, we practice in front of the mirror, we practice our walk for hours. This is more than just “fun” for us. This is our job, our career. It’s not a simple as taking a pretty picture," she added.
We can't wait to watch Brookell on the show and learn more about her.
