Jade Cole was a contestant on the Cycle 6 of ANTM.
Born and raised in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Jade Cole is an Indian and African-American fashion model. Before she was on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 6, Jade already had some experience as a model in the fashion industry. She was in Jay-Z and Pharell Williams’ “Change Clothes” music video, where she got to work alongside supermodel Naomi Campbell.
As a finalist on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 6, Jade became well-known for her notorious personality. The judges and the other girls often criticized her for her arrogant behavior. Jade didn’t see herself as being arrogant, but was always making negative comments about her fellow Top Model finalist, Gina Choe, who was known to be very insecure. Because the judges disapproved of Jade’s attitude, they placed her on the bottom two five times during the season. Nevertheless, her natural talent for modeling brought her all the way to the Top 3, but she was finally eliminated from the show on the season finale. She was the eleventh contestant to be sent home and, in a unique way of saying goodbye, read a portion of her own poem.
Jade has become a highly successful model since appearing on the show. She has had the opportunity to model abroad, particularly in Greece and India, and has been affiliated with five different modeling agencies, namely DBA in New York City, Uber Waring in Los Angeles, SMG in Seattle, VMH Models in Vancouver and Dream Models in Singapore.
Jade opened up a productions company, the Biracial Butterfly Productions. She has also been featured in several ads for Nelly’s Apple Bottom Clothing Line.
She was signed to Elite Model Management in Hong Kong in 2009. She has appeared in the music videos Go on Girl by Neyo and Digital Girl by Jamie Foxx ft. Kanye West, The-Dream & Drake.
