Q Can you tell me anything about the gorgeous Tyson Beckford on Make Me a Supermodel? I know I've seen him before.
-Janice Andrews, Valdosta, Ga.

Beckford, 37, who co-hosts the popular Bravo television series with supermodel Niki Taylor, was born in New York to Jamaican parents. He got his start as a model for Ralph Lauren's line of Polo fragrances and was named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" in 1995. He's appeared in the movies Into the Blue, Zoolander and the new Hotel California, and in a number of music videos, including 50 Cent's "21 Questions," Britney Spear's "Toxic" and Toni Braxton's "Unbreak My Heart." Involved in a 2005 automobile crash in New Jersey, he pulled himself out of the wreckage of his Dodge Ram before it burst into flames.
