Big paydays are no rarity in the Big Ten, but the conference's latest reported media rights deals are giving new meaning to 'perks of membership.' According to a Monday morning report from the Sports Business Journal's John Ourand, ESPN will shell out $1.14 billion over six years for the second half of the Big Ten's media rights package, meaning the conference's average media rights.

Fox411: Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Hunter McGrady describes pre-fame struggles, talks curvy figure

When Hunter McGrady made the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2016, she was deemed the 'curviest model ever.' But at the beginning of her career, she was told no a number of times.

“The Big Broadcast” is episode #114 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Paul McCusker, and originally aired on June 9, 1990. The following is the list of the most watched single-network television broadcasts in the United States by average viewership according to Nielsen.Twenty-nine of the thirty most watched broadcasts are Super Bowls, of which Super Bowl XLIX, with 114.4 million viewers, is number one.The most watched non-Super Bowl broadcasts are the finale of M.A.S.H in 1983 (106 million viewers), Dallas's 1980.

The rejections didn't stop her from pursuing dreams of being in front of the cameras.

“I had booked a job and I went with my mom to the job in downtown L.A. I was 16,” the 26-year-old McGrady told photographer Yu Tsai on IGTV. “I walked in and they were all staring at me and .. the producer came over and she said, ‘We’re so sorry, we didn’t realize how big you were.’ They didn’t even give me a chance to try on any of the garments. They didn’t give me a chance to do anything. They just simply turned me away.”

McGrady said at the time she 114 pounds and 6 feet tall but was told from industry people she was “nowhere near thin enough” to be a professional model.

“I went through that feeling like I had to measure up to be accepted or I wasn’t worthy of love, I wasn’t worthy of success if I wasn’t thinner,” she admitted. “If this is what it takes to be a model, this isn’t for me. Like, I’m out, I’m done.”

The model said the experience (and many others) hurt her mental health and she had to take time off to deal with depression and anxiety. McGrady said her perspective shifted when plus-size model Ashley Graham was featured in SI Swimsuit Issue in 2015.

“It opened up possibilities,” McGrady explained. “Not me as a plus-size model, but me as a plus-size woman, we’re getting chances that we had never gotten before. We were getting these opportunities and I had not seen that really in the past.”

McGrady, who is a proud size 16, previously told Fox News that she practices affirmations about her body every day.

'My confidence comes from me, within. I had to truly teach myself to love myself. It took a long time and it’s a daily struggle for me. But I do it,' she said.

'I literally look in the mirror and I tell myself, 'Hunter you are beautiful. You are confident. You are strong. Your stretch marks are beautiful, your cellulite is beautiful. You’re worthy. You’re worthy of putting on that swimsuit and strutting your stuff in front of everybody.' It takes one person to do that so other people can follow suit,' McGrady added.
