Bianca Richardson was a contestant during Cycle 13 of ANTM.
The 21-year-old student and aspiring model from Columbia, South Carolina was living in Washington, D.C. during her appearance on America’s Next Top Model.
During casting, Bianca (who now goes by “Bianca Chardei”) revealed that she had just come out of an abusive relationship which prompted her to shave her head. Although viewers and competitors felt sorrow for Bianca, that soon changed in episode two when Bianca began to complain about her makeover, her photo shoot, her outfit and her makeup. It was due to this that Bianca found herself in three bottom-two call outs (including her elimination). Her first two bottom-two call outs were for what the judges called a “poor attitude” and bad photo. In episode five, Bianca was in the bottom two because the judges felt she could soften the look in her face. They also felt she was not improving enough to stay in the competition. Despite her difficulties during the cycle, Bianca did win a reward challenge in episode three; unfortunately it was not strong enough to keep her on the show.
Since Cycle 13, Bianca has signed with Wilhelmina Models.
