Keenyah Hill, a model from Compton, California, was born on September 16, 1985. She majored in Biology, but her real passion is modeling. She also likes to socialize, skate, travel and draw. Her favorite television show is The Chappelle Show, while her favorite movie is Toy Story. She stands at 5 feet, 11 inches and enjoys taking a bite of cheese and pepperoni pizza once in a while.
As a Finalist on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 4, Keenyah was likened to supermodel Iman when the judges looked at her photos for the floral service 1-800 Flowers. She sometimes got into little fights with some of the other girls on the show, but the most memorable confrontation that involved Keenyah took place on the girls' ride back to their hotel after visiting Nelson Mandela's prison cell. Keenyah's fellow Top Model Finalist Brittany Brower
got so tired of hearing Keenyah's hypocrisy regarding the South African president that she started reprimanding Keenyah verbally. The girls were at South Africa at the time, where they did a photo shoot which required the girls to embody different kinds of animals. Keenyah was assigned to do the elephant, and it seemed rather appropriate, as her sudden gain weight was the subject of the judges' criticisms. Keenyah made it all the way to the Top 3, but was eliminated shortly thereafter because the judges felt she was becoming too arrogant.
After Keenyah appeared on the show, she went to sign with a modeling agency and has appeared in Vibe Magazine. Her runway projects include Alice and Olivia Fall 2006 and "Elle Girl Presents Dare To Be You: Wal-Mart Meets America's Next Top Models. She has also gone back to school, where she studied to be a neurosurgeon. Afterwards, she became signed to I Model and Talent in New York.
