Robin Manning was a contestant during Cycle 1 of ANTM.
Robin “Robynne” Manning is a plus-sized model and a Devout Christian from Memphis, Tennessee. Before she appeared ANTM’s Cycle 1, she was given the titles of Miss Soybean and Miss National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame. She received her MA from Tennessee State University, where she was also deemed as Miss Tennessee State University.
Being a Devout Christian like her fellow Top Model Finalist Shannon Stewart, Robin often criticized the other girls when she felt that they were doing something immoral. She was extremely affected when openly gay model Ebony brought her partner to the house. On the seventh week, the challenge was to pose nude for a jewelry advertisement. She, along with Shannon, refused to participate, saying that it was against her morals. Consequently, she was eliminated from the show, becoming the seventh contestant to be cut.
After her appearance on the show, Robin went on to do a Baby Phat fashion show with Elyse and Kesse. She has also appeared in the popular soap, The Young and the Restless, and the films, Without You and Holla.
Robin is pursuing an acting career and has been in two movies. She did some church-related print work and some test shots, but is not currently with an agency.
