Samantha Francis was a contestant during Cycle 8 of ANTM.
Samantha Francis was working as a sales associate in Pinson, Alabama before she joined America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 8. In addition, she didn’t have any professional modeling experience prior to her appearance on the show.
Samantha finally had to the courage to live out her life-long dream of becoming a model when her significant other urged her to try out for America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 8 in Atlanta, Georgia. Although she successfully made it to the finals, she was not able to stay long in the competition, as she was the second girl to be eliminated from the show. For the second photo shoot, the remaining twelve girls were asked to pose as different high school stereotypes, and although most of them were able to pull off their assigned stereotypes, Samantha, along with her fellow Top Model finalist, Natasha Galkina, had a hard time bringing her stereotype to life. The judges decided to cut Samantha because they saw she lacked experienced and personality.
Samantha Francis is now an incredibly successful international model currently signed with Fusion Model Management in New York, Apple Model Management in Bangkok, and Style International Management in Hong Kong. She used to be signed with Elite Model Management in New York. She was featured as a “Top Model in Action” during Cycle 13.
