Anslee Payne-Franklin was a contestant during Cycle 14 of ANTM.

The then 23-year-old bartender from Dacula, Georgia was recently married and had a three-year-old daughter during her stint on America’s Next Top Model. In interviews, Anslee revealed that she meant to try out for previous cycles, but having her daughter prevented her from following through with auditioning.

Initially, during her Top Model makeover, she was outwardly upset at having to cut her long curly locks; that is, until she saw the end result. After seeing the final touches, she loved her edgy new look.

During her initial panel interview, she proclaimed, “If you can’t strut your stuff and show who you are, you’re not worth anything.”

Anslee maintained a strong place in the competition, first being called 10th, then 7th, then 3rd. However, she dropped back down to 9th when she didn’t impress the judges following her ‘rhythmic gymnastics’ photo during the ‘dance’ photo shoot with Cade Martin. Episode 3  also presented Anslee clashing with Brenda in the Top Model House.

During episode 4, Anslee landed in the bottom two with Simone following the ‘vampire’ photo shoot with Sarah Silver. The judges felt that Anslee had amazing bone structure, but her last few photo shoots were “falling flat,” which were making the judges nervous about her potential. The panel was also disenchanted because she seemed to be making excuses every time she didn’t do well. (She blamed her poor performance during the CoverGirl challenge on her inability to hear the directions and blamed miscommunication with Sarah Silver on her unimpressive vampire photo.) Despite the harsh critique, the panel opted to eliminate Simone instead.

Additionally, Anslee and Alasia butted heads in the Top Model house. After Alasia questioned the upbringing of Anslee’s daughter following an argument over frozen veggies, Anslee’s temper flared, causing more uncomfortable feelings in the house.

Episode 5 revealed a low point for Anslee when she became visibly upset over not being able to see her daughter, Chloe. To cameras, she said, “It’s like walking around and feeling empty; there’s a part of me that isn’t there.” As the episode progressed, Anslee put her emotions aside to do well during the challenge with Nigel. During panel, Anslee received a good response from the judges. They said her photo, taken by D-Nice, “told a story.” They also said that she had a beautiful bone structure, but she needed to work on her angles. Ultimately, Anslee was called 5th during elimination.

Anslee managed to stay out of the negative spotlight and conflict in the Top Model house during episode 6. Her conflicts with Alasia (per the previous episode) seemed to diminish in front of the cameras, which probably added to her performance for the week.

During panel, Anslee received good critique with regards to her “New York women” photo shoot with Mike Ruiz. Nigel said that he felt her ‘New York artist’ facade worked for her because of her mysterious smirk. He added that he felt a sense of intelligence in her photo. Ann Shoket said that she looked like she had a secret, which makes the viewer want to know what it is.

Due to her terrific performance, Anslee was called 5th during elimination.

Episode 7 did not begin well for Anslee. During the first challenge at Lucky Cheng’s, Anslee received absolutely no applause following her runway performance in front of Miss Jay and a live audience.

During panel, Anslee received mixed reviews with regards to her “Hair Couture” photo by Jerry Metellus. ALT said that she had the stereotypical point-of-toe in her left leg, which looked a bit cliche. Nigel said that she had strength in her face. Whitney said she looked uncomfortable, which was similar to what Tyra said, which was that she looked awkward. This mixed review landed Anslee in the bottom two with Alexandra.

While in the bottom two, Tyra said that the judges found her face to be so stunning, they feared she just might be built exclusively for beauty shots. She said Anslee didn’t model from the waist down, which caused her shots to look bland. She said the judges felt she needed more practice.

Upon leaving the show, Anslee said the following:

“I’m very disappointed about not going to New Zealand with the other girls; I would love to go. I’ve never been out of the country. I’m am excited to see my child, of course. I feel like I let her down. I made it way further than I ever would have guessed I would have made it. I beat out hundreds of girls to be here. To me, that’s accomplishing something. It may not have been all the way, like I wanted to go, but it’s accomplishing something. And that means something to me.”

Since the show, Anslee has received a few different offers to be represented and for individual jobs. She’s currently looking to finish her portfolio, so she can shop around more effectively.

    Does anyone notice they all a start to look the same? Every other cycle’s contestants look like the ones from a previous cylce. Sharaun of Cycle 11 looks like Alaisia of Cycle 14. Renee Alway of Cycle 8 looks like Anslee of Cycle 14. Nnenna Agba of Cycle 6 looks like Bianca of Cycle 14, Whitney Thompson of Cycle 10 looks like Alexandra of Cycle 14. Tyra chooses contestants who fit the look and character of popular former contestants because it makes for good TV.

  2. kiki Says:

    I think her picture in the hair dress was pretty good and don’t know what the panel was thinking about. Her picture had some attitude while Alex’s picture sucked.

  3. Yuck101 Says:

    Hate her!

  4. Janna Says:

    Hard jaw but pretty girl!

  5. kim Says:

    Please tell me what song Anslee danced to in the chubby bunny episode. OMG she is so hot. Please, please.

  6. Creen Says:

    Blech.

  7. Linda Says:

    I think she has face for days. But she can only hope for a career as a Beauty model.

  8. Terri Says:

    This is another one who photographs so old looking. Plus whine, whine, whine, your the one who made the decision to leave your daughter and husband to compete.

  9. jejnfe@yahoo.com Says:

    Is this her?

  10. loils Says:

    She is clearly a stunning, interesting-looking girl but WHY did they have to give her that awful soccer-mum hair?! She looked so much better before.

  11. niqqa19 Says:

    i liked her beauty shot during antm :)

  12. Terra Says:

    She is super pretty. But there’s is something about her face that makes her look like she just smelled a fart.

  13. G Says:

    Horrible attitude. She was like a much more unlikable version of Renee from Cycle 8. She came across as a know it all, too strong headed and generally unpleasent.

    Everything out of her mouth was how she was better than others, whether it be maturity or something. No, you’re not even that mature. You’re early 20’s for flip sake, because you had a child young does not mean you are more mature than other girls your age. Ugh, she was so annoying.

    Her makeover was horrible, but it was an improvement from that Teyona inspired hair she was sporting before. Chiiiild.. Complete dreckitude as Andre would say.

    Saying that I wish her the best, I hope she has chilled out for her own good.

  14. Jack Says:

    Liked that pic of the fragrance or whatever its spelled. like Tyra and Mr.J said ” she looks like Madonna”. Really did.

  15. debra brown Says:

    Tyra was right about one thing about Anslee, she did have a pretty and interesting face, but I had to agree with Tyra Anslee had the most beautiful profile. Now if their was a modeling field that required profiles, Anslee would win hands down.

  16. Britto Says:

    Beautiful face but I think she’s actuall pretty conceited, judging by her interviews. For all that, she hasn’t done one thing since the show ended. Not one!
