Kari Schmidt was born in the year 1987 and is from Brookings, South Dakota. She stands at 5 feet, 8 inches and was one of the thirteen finalists on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 6. She graduated from Brookings High School in 2005. One of her favorite movies is What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams, while one of her favorite television shows is Lost. She enjoys listening to the music of The Beatles, The Dave Matthews Band, Tom Petty, Led Zepplin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ben Harper, Bob Marley and The Rolling Stones. She also likes to flip through the pages of magazines like Teen Vogue, People and Seventeen.
Even though Kari would tower over most average American women, she was the shortest finalist on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 6. On the show, her over-all appearance led the others to liken her to a Bratz Doll. She was a strong contender in the beginning, but she experienced great difficulty on the runway. Coupled with her inability to pull off a great walk, Kari also had a disproportioned body. Consequently, she became the third Finalist to be eliminated from the show.
After appearing on the show, Kari went back to school in order to finish her studies. She majored in Consumer Affairs at South Dakota University. She also believes that even if she does not become a successful model, the experience she gained from the show is still beneficial, as it will greatly help her when she pursues a career in business.
