Throwback Thursday

New #LadiesOfLondon Cast Member Caroline Fleming is a Reality TV Pro

She's basically the Danish Tyra Banks

Caroline Fleming may be one of the newest cast members of Ladies of London, but there's definitely a chance you've heard of her before. That's because Caroline has lived quite the high-profile life: She was born a baroness in one of Denmark's oldest families, became a supermodel, and was once married to Rory Fleming, the nephew of James Bond creator Ian Fleming and a member of a prominent banking family in Britain.

Now knowing how fabulous Caroline's life is, it should really come as no surprise that she would eventually make her way to TV. However, Ladies of London will not be the first time Caroline has opened up her life to millions of viewers. In 2008, Caroline first made her reality TV debut with The Baroness Moves In — or Baronessen flytter ind, for all you Danish speakers out there. This reality series, which aired on Kanal 4 in Denmark, was like a cross between the American shows Wife Swap and Supernanny. For five days, Caroline traded her privileged life as a baroness living in a castle with that of a woman from an everyday, much less ostentatious background.

At first, Caroline took on the responsibilities of the housewife with whom she traded lives. During the course of the show, Caroline took part in such seemingly un-baroness-like activities as doing the dishes, using a bewildering robotic vacuum, and helping a cow give birth. Seriously. There's video of it.

But soon, the baroness would bring her own special flair to the life of the woman she switched places with in an effort to improve it. That usually entailed giving the wife's spouse and house makeovers as well as helping her family members appreciate all that she does for them. One guy even proposed to his fiancée after Caroline got done with him. Just think of Caroline as a modern-day Mary Poppins but with much chicer accessories.

Caroline would then go on to be a part of an even bigger reality show, Denmark's Next Top Model. She hosted the modeling competition from 2010 until 2014, so yes, that does mean Caroline is basically the Danish Tyra Banks. As previously mentioned, Caroline had a modeling career before becoming a wife, mother, and reality TV star. She can still strike a fierce pose too, so there are few Danish models more qualified to help find the next big thing in fashion. 

During her time as the face of the show, Caroline embodied everything that an exceptional Top Model host should. She knew how to steal the show with some jaw-dropping looks, took immediate command of the room whenever she walked in, and was never afraid to be a little melodramatic. OK, a lot melodramatic.

 

With two shows already under Caroline's belt, her reality TV game is clearly strong. Caroline's proven winning personality makes it likely that Ladies of London will be especially entertaining this season. You know what they say about the third time being the charm and all.
