Eugena Washington is an aspiring model from Palmdale, California. She has wanted to become a model since she was a little girl, but never really got the nerve to do so until she finally decided to try out for America's Next Top Model, Cycle 7. Before she appeared on the show, Eugena was working as a customer service representative in her hometown.
As a Finalist on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 7, Eugena was able to model her way up to the Top 3. Eugena's journey to the Top 3 was not without its' ups and downs. She was sent to the bottom two twice, once for giving a poor performance during the challenge where the girls had to walk on a runway suspended over water, and once for disappointing the judges with her mannerisms during a photo shoot with model Fabio. On the other hand, Eugena was able to win the "Extreme Pose" challenge for Bao Tranchi's clothing line, rewarding her with $32,000 dollars worth of jewelry. She also had no trouble learning the traditional Spanish dance, Flamenco, which they had to perform during a dance test with runway coach Miss J. Alexander, consequently earning her the entire Custo Barcelona Fall 2006 collection. On her final week, Eugena did well on the CoverGirl Double Lip Shine commercial shoot, but the judges decided to keep Melrose instead because they started to question Eugena's passion for modeling.
After her stint on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 7, Eugena went on to grace the pages of Seventeen Magazine. She has also appeared in several music videos, such as rapper B.o.B.'s single "Nothin' on You". She was in commercials for T.J. Maxx and Clinique.
