In 1993, SCORE's editor called 19-year-old Bridgette "Holland's Number One Natural Resource." She was born in Rotterdam, Netherlands and discovered totally by happenstance. SCORE's director of photography was exiting a pub and Bridgette was entering. He changed his mind about leaving when he saw Bridgette, and after chatting her up at the pub, she agreed to pose. That's how it was often done before the internet and it's still one of the best ways. Bridgette was a quick study and a compliant student under his detailed direction.
