Jane Randall was a contestant during Cycle 15 of ANTM.
This ivy league student from Baltimore, Maryland was 19 years old during her appearance on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 15. Jane was actually discovered via Tyra.com.
During her first interview with panel in episode 1, Jane revealed that she’s was a student at the prestigious university of Princeton. Later, she mentioned that people probably thought of her as the “ivy league rich girl” due to her student status and her families well-to-do lifestyle.
Jane was called 5th during selection of the final 14 girls.
In episode 2, Jane did well during the four-stories-high runway challenge for Diane Von Furstenberg. She carried that strong performance with her through the Teen Bully photo shoot with Deborah Anderson. When her final photo was being reviewed during panel, Tyra commented that she has a lot of potential, she just needs to take it to the next level. Nigel said that it was ironic her face was the issue with regards to bullying because her face is really her main asset. He added that her body didn’t do anything for the photo, whereas her face was the most appealing part of the shot.
Jane was called 7th during elimination.
Episode 3 ended up being a double elimination episode as well as the makeover episode. Jane’s hair was lightened and given extensions per Tyra’s recommendation to “edge” her out.
While her photo was being reviewed following the “Fallen Angels” shoot with Anne Menke, ALT said when he looked at her photo, he saw awkwardness. Nigel said that she looked striking, but had only a few photos where she looked “scorned,” which was the ‘angel’ she was portraying during the shoot.
Jane was called 7th during elimination, keeping her in the competition for Top Model.
The episode 3 challenge took place at Knott’s Berry Farm. The girls were tasked with posing while riding a roller coaster called The Silver Bullet. Jane was asked to portray “meloncholy.” When her photo was being reviewed, Nigel said that she “didn’t quite portray meloncholy, but she did look beautiful.”
During the “undersea goddess” photo shoot with Matthew Rolston, Jane had the pleasure of modeling jewelry from Mikimoto, Neil Lane and Martin Katz. While shooting, Mr. Jay commented that Jane looked “totally hot.”
In panel, Matthew Rolston commented that Jane’s challenge was being able to work with her body while in an uncomfortable position. Tyra said that Jane “looked stunning, but should have stretched her neck more, so she looked like a model.” While deliberating, ALT said her photo was “weak.” Matthew Rolston added that “there was something generic about the look; it wasn’t memorable.” Tyra concluded deliberations by saying that “this is something you’d sell in Town & Country reader.”
Due to the mixed reviews, Jane was called 8th during elimination.
In episode 5, Jane the girls participated in a Herve Leroux runway challenge where the catwalk consisted of two fast-moving conveyor belts. Jane performed well considering the difficulty.
During the “Lucha Vavoom” photo shoot with Brahka Squared, Mr. Jay commented that “she needed to find a way to connect with what they were doing; she needed to pose with intention and commit.”
In panel, Nigel commented that she needed to “hunch her back, not arch, because she was looking porny.”
While deliberating, Nigel said “she’s lost. She really doesn’t know what modeling is about. It’s a disaster.” Guest Judge Karolina Kurkova added that she “was beautiful, but needs to work on her personality.” ALT said that she was “dreckitude.”
Because Jane’s performance wasn’t as strong as the other girls, she landed in the bottom two with Lexie. While in the bottom two, Tyra told Jane, “You have nice pictures, but there’s something there you don’t want to show. It’s because of this your photos are so-so.”
Ultimately, Jane was safe, while Lexie became the next girl eliminated.
Episode 6 began with a CoverGirl challenge. Jane and the girls were split into groups of three and had to teach the public how to use CoverGirl products. The public judged the girls and so did fashion journalist Derek Blasberg. Jane was grouped with Kendal and Ann – and after the judging, they didn’t shine as well as the winning group, Kayla, Esther and Kacey.
For their photo shoot, the girls got to work with fashion stylist Lori Goldstein and world famous photographer Patrick Demarchelier on Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive. Jane got to shoot with Kacey and a male model. During the shoot, Patrick Demarchelier said that she “was very good; she had an interesting look, but she’s a bit more commercial.”
During panel, ALT said that in the group shot she “looked like some extraordinary French-supermodel-actress with far away mystery in her eyes.” In her solo shot, ALT said that her photo was “superb.” Nigel also said that she looked “superb – and haute.” Patrick Demarchelier said that she was “great with good energy and good movement.”
During deliberation, Nigel said that when you focus on her in the tight shot, she gets nervous, but when she’s in a group shot, she performs very well.” Patrick Demarchelier said that “she did better in the group shot.”
Jane’s stellar performance earned her a 2nd call out during elimination.
In episode 7, the girls were introduced to the Grammy Museum and their first challenge. Jane and the girls were paired up and had to dress each other as if they were going to present an award at the actual Grammys. Jane was paired with Esther for the challenge. Due to the difficulty of the challenge, neither girl won the challenge prize of being an actual Grammy girl.
For their photo shoot with photographer Francesco Carrozzini Jane had to portray Marc Jacobs, which is male. During the shoot, Francesco Carrozzini wanted more attitude. He said that “she had trouble because she didn’t know how to position her body and didn’t have a clear idea of what she was doing.”
During panel, Tyra said, “When you come to top model, it’s not just about fun and games and dressing up; it’s about knowing designers, photographers, hair stylists, make-up artists.” Nigel said that he would “like to see more in the body; it was too puffed up in the chest.”
During deliberation, ALT said that he “couldn’t believe that she was a Princeton girl, but didn’t do her homework about fashion.” Francesco Carrozzini commented that “it’s important that these girls open a magazine and see things; she has to be more aware in order to play a character. She wasn’t portraying anything in her photo.”
Jane’s performance earned her a 6th call out during elimination.
