Kathrine Sørland (born 25 March 1980) is a Norwegian fashion model, TV presenter and beauty queen who has competed in the Miss World and Miss Universe beauty pageants.

Beauty pageants

Sørland won the Frøken Norge (Miss Norway) competition in 2001, and went on to represent Norway in the Miss World 2002 held at the Alexandra Palace in London, United Kingdom. She was the favourite to win the crown, but was only reaching the final five, and placed as the 3rd runner-up behind the eventual winner Miss Turkey, Azra Akın; Miss Colombia, Natalia Peralta and Miss Peru, Marina Mora. Before the pageant she was the most vocal contestant in leading calls to boycott over the Amina Lawal case. However, the pageant went ahead in Nigeria at Amina's insistence, with Sørland's participation.

Then, two years later, she went on to represent her country in the Miss Universe 2004 pageant held in Quito, Ecuador, where she reached the top fifteen and finished in the 11th place. The pageant was won by Jennifer Hawkins, Miss Australia.

TV shows

Kathrine has been the presenter of several TV shows in Norway. Some of them are the Norwegian version of the reality series Top Model, the game show Casino, the sing contest for celebrities Sangstjerner (Sing stars) and a Home makeover programme named Norges styggeste rom (Norway's ugliest room).

Personal life

She married estate agent Andreas Holck in the Stavanger Cathedral in Stavanger, Norway, on 1 July 2006, and she gave birth to a baby boy, Leon, on 1 October 2008.[1] Sørland started her career as a model when she was only 15 years old in the model bureau Prestige.
