Giselle Samson was a contestant during Cycle 1 of ANTM.
The lifelong dancer and gymnast from Corona, California worked with Anaheim Ballet, Disney and played football before her appearance on America’s Next Top Model.
During the fifth week of America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 1, both Giselle and fellow Top Model Finalist Ebony were left standing in front of Tyra, awaiting the judges’ decision on who was to be eliminated. Giselle was spared as Ebony was sent home, but her performance the following week betrayed her lack of confidence. Her photos with 2003 NFL Rookie of the Year Clinton Portis were not impressive enough to convince the judges to keep her, and so she became the fifth finalist to be cut from the show. Tyra said it was her lack of confidence that hindered her performance.
After appearing on the show, Giselle went on to pose for photographer Timothy Hunold in Los Angeles. She has done a variety of test shots, but is now working as a hostess for Carnival Cruise lines.
