Date Of Birth

January 20, 1986


Saleisha Stowers is a former receptionist from Los Angeles, CA and is the cycle 9 winner of America’s Next Top Model.  The 21 year old model was strong throughout the season, winning three challenges and only landing in the bottom two twice.  Host and judge Tyra Banks said this of Saleisha after her victory: “Saleisha, I feel, is CoverGirl when it comes to who she is, what she stands for and how she portrays herself.”  Controversy has surrounded Saleisha since she previously knew Tyra, attending her TZone camp as a teenager.  She also appeared on her talk show as a model and was in a national commercial for Wendy’s. This caused controversy for her eligibility in ANTM, but she continued to pursue a career in modeling.

Since leaving the show, she has appeared in print and even walked for Los Angeles Fashion Week. In 2009, she was appeared in Robin Thicke’s music video clip “Sex Therapy” and “Tired of Being Sorry” by Enrique Iglesias.
