Kari Schmidt was a contestant on Cycle 6 of ANTM.
Born in Brookings, South Dakota, Kari Schmidt was the shortest finalist on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 6. On the show, her over-all appearance led the others to liken her to a Bratz Doll. She was a strong contender in the beginning, but she experienced great difficulty on the runway. Coupled with her inability to pull off a great walk, Kari also had a disproportioned body. Consequently, she became the third finalist to be eliminated from the show.
After appearing on the show, Kari went back to school in order to finish her studies. Currently, she is majoring in Consumer Affairs at South Dakota University, from where she expects to graduate in the year 2010. She believes that even if she does not become a successful model, the experience she gained from the show is still beneficial, as it will greatly help her when she pursues a career in business.
