Teyona Anderson was a contestant and winner of Cycle 12 of ANTM.
During the Top Model semi-finals, the New Jersey native was the ninth girl called to join the final thirteen competing for America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 12. Throughout the competition, she had been called first three times, being widely considered versatile and naturally photogenic by the judges. She also received praise for her consistent photos and chameleon portfolio, as well as her “wind-in-the-face” look. She struggled with her final commercial, and landed in the bottom two for the first (and only) time, but survived against fellow competitor Aminat Ayinde. At the final judging, she was deemed to be neck and neck with fellow contestant Allison Harvard, but was believed to have a greater passion for modeling, making her the judges’ pick for America’s Next Top Model.
Since the show, Teyona has walked in nearly thirty shows in Arise Cape Town Fashion Week and taken part South Africa Fashion Week. She has appeared in a spread for In Touch Weekly and had a cover and spread in Seventeen Magazine (July 2009) as part of her ANTM prize package. She has also modeled for Destiny Magazine, Glamour Magazine (South Africa), Edgars Club Magazine, and Soul Magazine.
Teyona is currently signed with Elite Model Management in New York and Cape Town.
