DATE OF BIRTH
Brittany Hatch was working as a bartender in Savannah, Georgia when she decided to try out for the eighth season of America’s Next Top Model. When she was 14 years old, her mother brought her to New York City and had her meet with several modeling agencies, but Brittany was not at all interested. At the age of 17 she was hit by a car, affecting her short-term memory.
As an adult, a friend constantly encouraged her to pursue a career in modeling, and when the show made its casting call, Brittany took her chance, even though she had not watched a single episode of the show.
When Brittany became a finalist on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 8, she proved to be one of the strongest competitors. Each week, she had managed to produce impressive photos, but when she struggled to remember her lines during the CoverGirl commercial shoot in Australia, Brittany found herself in the bottom two. She attributed her poor performance to her short-term memory disorder, and was subsequently spared from elimination. Her fellow Top Model finalist Dionne accused her of using her condition to gain the judges’ favor, but Brittany defended herself and regarded Dionne’s accusation as mere ignorance. Ultimately, Brittany became the ninth finalist eliminated from the competition because she had done poorly on the “go-sees”. She then signed on with New York Model Management and later got picked up by Beatrice International Models in Milan.
PLACE OF BIRTH
– While competing in ANTM she traveled with the rest to a Beverly Hills salon for makeovers. Even though most of them liked their new looks, a lot of pain came with Brittany’s new hair weave for they had to dye her hair more than once to match the weave, causing her scalp to be sore and full of blisters.
– Tyra Banks realized that the weave did not fit her and noticed the pain Brittany was going through. Tyra referred to it as “the dead hamster”. Later that day the weave was completely taken out.
– When she was younger, she was hit by a car and it affected her short-term memory.
