The place where Trunfio has made the biggest splash is Australian television. She has been a mentor on several model-competition series such as "Make Me a Supermodel" (2009), "The Face" (2014), and "The Face: Australia" (2014). Her appearance on "The Face" led to a serious dressing down from supermodel Naomi Campbell, who said, "Do not compare yourself to me, ever. You are not on my level, Nicole. You never will be on my level. Do not compare yourself to me."

When my kids go to bed, I light a candle, make a tea, and change the mood in my house—I dim the lights and really focus on me in that moment. I reflect on the day, the highs and the lows, how I can have a better day tomorrow, meditate, and then fill my mind with things I love and that inspire me.

I am compassionate, tolerant and optimistic, I like to see things from multiple perspectives to understand the complexities of the human condition, I believe in love, equality and world peace.

I grew up in the bush in the middle of Western Australia, I was a tom boy. I learnt to ride dirt bikes at age 5 and kept up on it until I was scouted to be a model in NYC. I am very VERY Italian, my childhood consisted of thick Italian culture, making Italian sausage, pasta sauce and wine all from scratch.
