Brittany Alvey, née Sullivan (born on September 9, 1988), more known as Mckey Sullivan, is an American fashion model. She was the winner of cycle 11 of ANTM in 2008.

Early Life

Sullivan was born to Michael and Gayle Sullivan and has three siblings, Bridgette, Jimmy, and Mikey. She was a graduate of Lake Forest High School and was a sophomore at Ripon College where she majored in government and chemical biology. She also trains in mixed martial arts with her boyfriend.

She was known for appearing at the Bristol Renaissance Faire, which inspired her medieval fashion sense. Sullivan got into modeling when she tried out for The Elite Model Look following a sports injury and won the regional division of the competition.


McKey originally auditioned for cycle 9, but was told that she wasn't what they were looking for. After auditioning for a second time, she ultimately competed against thirteen other contestants to win cycle 11.

Two other contestants named Brittany (or some variation) were also picked for the top fourteen, so Sullivan and Brittney Brown were asked by Tyra to change their names for the show. Sullivan chose 'McKey' since her mother was considering naming her McKenzie when she was born and since it was her penname in high school. She plans on continuing to use the name beyond this television season.

She came into the competition with long red hair but was later given a short black hair makeover. Throughout the competition, she became one of the front-runners with two collective first call-outs and winning two challenges. During her go-see challenge in Amsterdam, she was booked by all four designers that she met. It was revealed that had she returned back to the agency on time, she would have won the challenge.
