Nnenna Agba was a contestant on Cycle 6 of ANTM.
Although born in Houston, Texas, Nnenna Agba lived in Nigeria for 12 years, only to come back to the United States at the age of fourteen. In 2004, she completed her studies as a chemistry major at the Texas A&M University and before she joined America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 6, she was working as a chemist at a Texas-based oilfield chemical company called Champion Technologies.
During the makeover session on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 6, Nnenna’s head was shaved bald because on the previous photo shoot, where the girls had to be made to look bald, Nnenna was the one who looked amazing with absolutely no hair. The judges saw that Nnenna had a lot of potential, and she was a very strong contender in the beginning. However, as the weeks went by, her performance began to drop, and on the photo shoot in Bangkok, Thailand, Nnenna clearly had a difficult time pulling off the right pose. She was placed in the bottom two, and was subsequently eliminated from the competition.
After she appeared on the show, Nnenna started working with MC2 Model Management in New York, formerly known as Karin Models. She’s also been associated with Cover Management. She has been on the cover of True Love, Clam, Onyx Style and Time Out London magazines. She has appeared in Essence, Jewel and Arise magazine and has modeled for Red and Lulu. She also appeared in a commercial for McDonald’s.
She is currently signed with OmodelAfrica, eSensual Models, Bookings Model Agency and Figaro International Management Group.
