Qristyl has been intrigued with fashion and design since the age of 15 when she sewed a black and white print cheerleader-style mini skirt. She studied fashion design at Stephens College in Columbia, MO, and went on to work as a stylist assistant and technical designer before making designs for her own company, Qristyl Frazier Designs. She has designed clothes for Queen Latifah, Angie Stone and Wendy Williams and is extremely proud that she can step out of the box and create beautiful designs for plus-sized women which, she terms, “plus sexy.”

Very good choice, Tim, Laura and Emmett. The busty gals in the audience are all cheering right now.
Also, she's LOADED with personality:
Honestly, what's not to love there? Is it too soon to say it looks like this year's cast is the best since S3?
