Early life and America's Next Top Model appearance

Stolz grew up in New York City,[3] and attended The Brearley School in Manhattan. In 2005, she earned a bachelor's degree in government and intergovernmental politics from Wesleyan University;[4][5] she wrote her undergraduate thesis about U.S. foreign policy.[3] After graduating from Wesleyan, Stolz briefly worked in a law firm.[6]

In fall 2005, Stolz was a contestant on Cycle 5 of America's Next Top Model. Stolz, who was open about her sexuality on A.N.T.M., was routinely criticized by some of the show's judges for having a "masculine" appearance. Kim is also known for kissing fellow contestant Sarah Rhoades in the limousine. She also "made out" with Sarah while the two were in bed together. In an interview with the website AfterEllen, Stolz stated: "I think that a lot of people were very quick to merge my sexuality and gender, and that made them scrutinize my masculinity a whole lot more than they would otherwise."[4] Stolz was eventually the ninth contestant eliminated, making it to the final five.[7]

Career

Stolz has an active presence with MTV: she is a video jockey for The Freshman on mtvU and is also an MTV News correspondent. In 2008, she reported extensively on the 2008 Iowa Caucus and interviewed presidential candidates John Edwards and Mike Huckabee.[8][9] Stolz also pursued a career in fashion modeling; soon after she appeared on America's Next Top Model, Stolz was signed with Elite Model Management[10] in New York City and is now signed to Ford Models[11] in New York. Stolz also had a small role on an episode of the UPN series, Veronica Mars, as part of a challenge win for America's Next Top Model.[4] She has also been featured as one of CoverGirl's Top Models in Action.
