Allison Kuehn was a contestant during Cycle 10 of ANTM.
Allison Kuehn was the 19-year-old hostess from Waunakee, Wisconsin. Allison was actually one of the more experienced models on the show, as she had begun modeling at sixteen years old; she had mentioned that she frequently traveled to Asia for her previous work. She was one of the more experienced models coming into the show.
Allison has been remembered for a few reasons. The first being that she openly admitted that she was once anorexic. This came out while she was arguing with Fatima Said following a comment Fatima Siad made about Allison’s weight. Allison was also known for the manner in which she was eliminated from the show.
During episode three, Allison exhibited a conceited attitude with regard to her makeover. Tyra complimented Allison for looking “so soft and pretty.” Instead of saying “thank you,” she answered, “I know!” Even after Tyra pointed out that she needed to say, “Thank you,” Allison still didn’t acknowledge Tyra. This coupled with a lackluster photo shoot landed her in the bottom two. She was the third model eliminated from the show.
Allison agreed with the fact that Cycle 10 was the most competitive cycle ever. She said that not only did the girls look beautiful, but everyone had that competitive attitude. “It really brought out an ugly side in most of the girls, and that’s why there seemed to be a lot of fighting. All the girls, myself included, wanted it so bad,” she shared.
Allison was previously with Ford Models in Milwaukee, Vue Model Management and I Model and Talent in Los Angeles. Since the show, Allison has been in Wedding More, Jessica Code and Pop magazine.
