Aimee Wright was a contestant during Cycle 10 of ANTM.
Aimee Wright was the 18-year-old hostess from Spanaway, Washington. During her time on America’s Next Top Model Cycle 10, Aimee had solid photos, and was even praised for her performance during the Elle Macpherson lingerie photo shoot in episode two. During episode six, Aimee struggled to portray an R&B music diva in the music genre shoot and was eliminated. She was the fifth model eliminated from Cycle 10.
Despite her age, Aimee believed she was definitely ready for the competition. In her opinion, she was more mature than some of the other girls there. She described the fights in the house as petty and ridiculous. “It’d be over really stupid stuff, so a lot of times I just tried to stay out of the drama. I’m not one to really get in on the arguments with people,” Aimee has said.
The judges concluded that she was too young and that she needed to experience life a tad more before really pursuing modeling. “They just want me to maybe travel and get out there more. They want me to get into the modeling world and really experience it for what it really is. I think they just feel like I’m more sheltered than I really am,” she explained.
Aimee also admitted there were times she was confused and frustrated with the judges’ comments. When she was criticized for looking a lot of a chameleon, Aimee didn’t get it. “I had always seen being a chameleon as such a positive thing, and yet they were kind of criticizing me for it,” she shared.
Aimee is currently signed to Heffner Model Management in Seattle, Washington.
