Stunning Gisele, 35, who announced she was quitting the catwalk last year, will be one of many ‘surprises’ planned for the ‘sexiest ever’ Olympic opening ceremony on August 5, which is expected to attract a global TV audience of a billion. Gisele will strut into Rio’s Maracana stadium to the strains of the famous bossa nova jazz song, played on a piano by Brazilian musician Paolo Jobim, whose late father Antonio composed the worldwide hit in 1962.
Gisele ranked as the world’s highest-earning supermodel in 2015, according to Forbes, earning $44 million.
She’s been the No. 1 supermodel since 2002, reported Forbes. Beside her endorsement deals with beauty brands such as Chanel, she and Brady both endorse Under Armour.

Brady, who’s been suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the upcoming 2016 season due to Deflategate, will earn $14 million from the Pats this season, according to Spotrac.com
