Bianca  Richardson was a contestant during Cycle 13 of ANTM.

The 21-year-old student and aspiring model from Columbia, South Carolina was living in Washington, D.C. during her appearance on America’s Next Top Model.

During casting, Bianca (who now goes by “Bianca Chardei”) revealed that she had just come out of an abusive relationship which prompted her to shave her head. Although viewers and competitors felt sorrow for Bianca, that soon changed in episode two when Bianca began to complain about her makeover, her photo shoot, her outfit  and her makeup. It was due to this that Bianca found herself in three bottom-two call outs (including her elimination). Her first two bottom-two call outs were for what the judges called a “poor attitude” and bad photo. In episode five, Bianca was in the bottom two because the judges felt she could soften the look in her face. They also felt she was not improving enough to stay in the competition. Despite her difficulties during the cycle, Bianca did win a reward challenge in episode three; unfortunately it was not strong enough to keep her on the show.

Since Cycle 13, Bianca has signed with Wilhelmina Models.

    This girl deserves some serious congratulations. I’m glad Wilhelmina saw something special in her – because there certainly is.

    • T Says:

      Wow. I’m really pleased for Bianca. She was always told to soften her look and she really has worked hard and she looks great – very versatile. Well done, girl.

    Her profile is stunning.

  4. neesy Says:

    Really? Really? I thought she looked like a drag queen who forgot her/his wig.

    BTW Bianca, scars are permanent.

  5. anastacia Says:

    CONGRATULATIONS! Love Love Love!

    The best thing you ever did was shave that FAN-F*CKING-TASTIC HEAD!!!!!

  6. lisa Says:

    She’s also done work with Jeffrey Campbell shoes. She’s everywhere on

  7. Janna Says:

    Gorgeous young woman! They shouldn’t have put that revolting blonde wig on her. She doesn’t need it. Just that beautiful face!

  8. Tlynn Says:

    Funny the shots with the wild eye makeup; that is the blouse/jacket she wore on her last ANTM appearance.

  9. AWilson325 Says:

    Where was this person on the show? Her pictures are stunning! I didn’t like her personality though…it made her very unsttractive.

  10. Pam Says:

    I think that if she had been stronger during that competition, she could have won! She has fierce in her eyes. And according to me, she is one of the most beautiful contestants in all cycles!

  11. Amber Says:

    Her bone structure is hard but her face is soft enough to work in fashion. She reminds me of an African beauty. I hope her career will be taken to grand success despite her short height. She’s a good example of a balance between soft and hard. It’s not like Krista White whose face is completely hard and uninviting.

  12. boo Says:

    OMG, she was annoying. She just reminded me of the other annoying people from the older seasons. Blah, blah, blah. Nothing special about her. She didn’t embrace anything they gave her; she was just as she said it “too smart.” Whatever!

  13. Liz N'Diaye Says:

    Wow! I have to admit, I did not see what Tyra saw in her while she was in the competition, I didn’t think she was much of a model, but now seeing all of this I’ve been proved wrong x 100!! She’s absolutely stunning, especially with a softer expression on her face! No matter what her personality is like, it’s very hard to deny she’s got talent and beauty!

  14. drea Says:

    she’s always had the perfect features for modeling, specifically editorial but her attitude sucks. i think her attitude is what caused her to look “hard”. hopefully, since the show, she’s seen how ugly she came across on ANTM and has since modified her behaviour. i wish her nothing but the best and success!

  15. Cassie Says:

    Girl! I love her face and head! Her photographs are fantastic and her look is edgy yet different enough for the Parisian fashion industry.

  16. Gaberella Says:

    I still say her face is too hard, but LOVE the shaved head, she should keep that forever!

  17. Kiki. Says:

    I liked Bianca watching the cycle over again I felt where she was coming from and she is a great model, hope she continues.

  18. ANTM fan Says:

    In some of her pictures, she resembles Nnenna Agba. Or……?

  19. GUEST Says:

    She bullied Heather but what did she learn from coming out of an abusive relationship—to model that behavior? I hear this girl is abusive to others, I hope she has matured past that.

  20. Kat Says:

    Half Nnenna, half Ebony, I think. The one from cycle one, not cycle five.

  21. Jessica Says:

    Her performance on the show was horrible: hard look, bad attitude, etc…but it is nice to see that she did learn from her mistakes and has made a career for herself. However, I think she should keep the shaved head…so much more beautiful that way. Her bone structure just gets lost with all the hair in my opinion
