Before becoming a finalist on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 8, Kathleen DuJour was working as a hairstylist in Brooklyn, New York.
Kathleen was the first to be eliminated from the show despite her confident runway walk because the judges were disappointed with her inability to portray an anti-fur advocate in the politically-motivated first photo shoot. Kathleen clearly had the most difficult time with the assignment, and had to keep asking for help from Top Idol judge and renowned photographer Nigel Barker. She could not grasp the “anti-fur” concept because she, in actuality, has no real qualms about the use of fur in clothing, to the dismay of PETA representatives.
After she appeared on the show, Kathleen went back to her old life as a hairdresser in Brooklyn, but has also claimed that she will try out for the show again. She thought about going back to school and did some test shots, waiting to be picked up by an agency. BuddyTV's exclusive interview with Kathleen
