Brita Petersons (married name Wald) was a contestant on Cycle 4 of ANTM.

Brita decided to enter the fashion industry as a model because she wanted to follow in the footsteps of her mother. Her family, who are originally from Latvia, did not like the idea of Brita becoming a model, but they couldn’t do much to stop her. Brita admits that she had a difficult childhood, having been pushed to study everyday and to play the piano.

In hard pursuit of a modeling  career, Brita auditioned for and was selected as one of the 14 Finalists on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 4. Although Brita is remarkably beautiful, the judges were concerned with her age (she was already 25 years old when she entered the competition) and weight (she weighed in at 138 lbs.). After the first photo shoot, she and Brandy Rusher landed in the bottom two during the judging session, and ultimately, the judges decided to keep Brandy and to send Brita home. She was the first girl eliminated from Cycle 4.

A short time after she was eliminated, Brita received a modeling contract with Ford Models. Since then, she has gone on to model for magazines like Brentwood magazine, Los Angeles Times Magazine and California Apparel News Lingerie magazine, of which she was the cover. She also dazzled on the runway show of Eisbar and modeled for famous fashion designers Vince and Nanette Lepore. In 2003, she enrolled at the California State Polytechnic University-Pomona, where she majored in Sport’s Nutrition.

Brita is currently signed with Vue Model Management.

    I was bummed to see her leave. I think she had so much more potential than idiots like Brandi.

  2. Camilla Says:

    Me too! And look at the other pics; she doesn’t look old at all! I think that their photographer was just bad and Jay didn’t direct her enough.

    Its fantastic to see that a lot of the ones who have been eliminated first are just as capable of having a successful career if they still go for it.

      Exactly my thought! Kahlen, who was in the final, is said to be a bartender now…but of course, maybe that´s what she wants, (I don´t mean to judge her)

    you know what this girl’s really trying to make it gotta give her some credit and she looks great!!!

  7. mark Says:

    I cannot believe they would send a MOST georgeous girl like that home and keep a ugly skanky shit talking hillbilly like Brandi!

  8. mark Says:

    This girl looks like Bridget Bardot for crying out loud!

  9. sami Says:

    Now that’s a victoria’s secret model.

  10. bt Says:

    She’s probably the most successful model on ANTM who was eliminated first. I mean, this batch of photos rivals some of the runner-ups!

  11. Heather Says:

    Absolutely stunning! I seriously don’t see why she was eliminated. Dumb decision by the judges!

  12. Joseph Says:

    I am surprised with her success after so early elimination … cheers, she seemed to be okay

  13. Daniel Says:

    She has the most exceptional calves I ever have seen. I adore her muscular well shaped legs. Wow!

  14. Himela Says:

    In her photos she’s boring, she has nothing new to offer, nothing extraordinary. I would book her to advertise wedding dresses and that’s all.

  15. Dave Says:

    I too remember and loved her shapely legs, wish she’d show more though

  16. Elf Says:

    Latvian woman – they are stunning.

  17. bandi Says:

    great for modelling lingerie. her looks reminded me of sami brady from days of our lives

  18. Victoria Says:

    Such a stunning, European looking beauty who definitely did not deserve to go home so early. The fact that they criticised her for weighing a little more than the others also irritates me because it just promotes illness like Anorexia nervosa and Bulimia nervosa.
