Whitney Cunningham



Whitney Cunningham is an aspiring model and actress from West Palm Beach, Florida. Before she joined the eighth season of America’s Next Top Model, Whitney was a student and a basketball player at Dartmouth College. She had originally tried out for the show’s seventh season, but failed to make it to the semifinals. Thereafter, she decided to build her modeling career on her own and proceeded to work with various photographers in order to create her portfolio. Just before she was to return to school, the modeling show contacted her and asked her to audition for Cycle 8, where she successfully made it all the way to the finals.

During her brief participation in the eighth season of America’s Next Top Model, Whitney had been placed in the bottom three times before her elimination on week 6. Whitney expressed her disbelief regarding her ultimate status in the competition because she felt that she had done well with her photo shoot with ANTM Cycle 1 finalist Shannon Stewart . Her shock was also brought about by the compliments she received from Jay Manuel during the actual photo shoot (their conversation was edited out of the particular episode). Since then, she has pursued modeling.
