If you, like us, have binge-watched all of Selling the OC, you may very well find yourself wondering about the new, glamorous cast of real estate agents. Namely the resident Brit, Polly Brindle who not only had a very different career before joining the O-group but also let slip some wild details about her divorce. So, without further ado, here’s a debrief on Polly Brindle!

We’re starting to discover that several of the Selling the OC cast have very interesting lives—like Gio Helou, whose mum also works for the Oppenheim Group and of course Polly as you might have gnarred from her thick accent, is actually British.

Unlike many of her Orange County-native colleagues, Polly moved to the US in 2011 before then getting her real estate license and joining the world of reality TV.

But what did Polly do before joining the O-Group and where is she from originally? Here’s everything you need to know…

 Where is Polly Brindle from? 

Polly is originally from West Yorkshire in North England but moved to California in 2011 and received American citizenship in March of this year. 

She posted the exciting news on Instagram, writing in the caption: “SO excited to finally be able to call the country I have lived in for over a decade, home.”

What did Polly Brindle do before joining the O-Group? 

Before securing multi-million dollar listings, Polly was actually in another glamorous line of work—modeling. 

If you thought she looked familiar on Selling the OC you were probably right on the money, as she’s modeled for brands like Lancôme, Dior and Aston Martin. She even tried her hand at acting, appearing in a number of films including Rush and The Glass Man.

Who is Polly Brindle’s ex-husband?

In episode one of the new series, Polly revealed to Austin that she had been married for the majority of her twenties but did not name-drop him.

Apart from her account of their breakup in the Netflix show, there is not much known about her mystery ex.

What happened between Polly Brindle and her ex-husband?

When asked by Austin about her marriage and if the pair just went their ‘separate ways’, she revealed to that their relationship had a ‘plane crash ending.’

Polly then elaborated: “We took vows, and I took those vows very seriously. I got married for the rest of my life, and he was unfaithful.” Hence why she did not take kindly to Kayla attempting to kiss Tyler Stanaland (who is married to actress Brittany Snow) in episode five.

She then went into more dramatic detail in her solo confessional, adding: "I saw pictures on his phone of him with two women. They were prostitutes.”

In the show, she also revealed that she is currently single but perhaps we could see some new developments if Selling the OC’s second season gets confirmed.
