Brittany “ShaRaun” Brown was a contestant during Cycle 11 of ANTM.

The18-year-old from Chicago, Illinois native was a student during her appearance on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 11.

During Episode 2, the judges were unimpressed with ShaRaun’s photo, her interview and her insincere personality. She was the first girl eliminated on the show.

Following her elimination during the premiere of America’s Top Model, ShaRaun told reporters the program’s portrayal of her, which emphasized her confidence and not much else, was incomplete.

She was unhappy that America didn’t get to learn that she spent her spring break working for Habitat for Humanity in New Orleans and that she is still a virgin who speaks openly about practicing abstinence and safe sex.

She also felt that her relationship with trans-gendered contestant Isis, was misconstrued.

She said that after they showed her commenting that, ‘I don’t think a drag queen will win America’s Next Top Model,’ she had become friends with Isis King becoming very cool and one of her friends. She said, “So it wasn’t anything like me hating on her or anything like that. It was just me [sic] answering a question that I had been asked.”

Brittney, who took on the name ‘ShaRaun’ because there were two other Brittney’s in the final 14, said that she felt that the judges and some of the other girls may have misinterpreted her energy, determination and drive to become a successful model as over confidence. Calling herself “hungry, young, and ready to break into the industry,” she added that her determination could be seen in the sacrifices she made to initially get onto the show. She felt that everyone should have seen how much she wanted to win by the fact that she missed her prom and her graduation to do the show.

ShaRaun, who had no previous modeling experience also wondered how far she could have made it if she would have stayed in the competition and been able to gain more experience and training from the experts and judges. “Coming from that and having made it this far into the competition with no experience and no proper training at all, that’s huge! And I think that if I had stayed in the competition a little longer I could’ve been molded and shaped into that ideal model and a better model and learned the tricks and trades of modeling.”

ShauRaun has learned from this experience and is using it to help her grow. “The best experience you can learn in life is rejection,” she said. “To be rejected makes me stronger and makes me a better person.”

She is thinking of Top Model as a stepping stone and the fact that she got eliminated so early on allows her to pursue her career as a model as well as branch off into acting and singing for which she also has a passion for. She is taking a year off from school to pursue her dream and may make a move to New York City.

    Just about threw up when she introduced herself to Nigel as “America’s Next Top Model.”

  2. Gina Says:

    I think everyone learned a real lesson from this girl because after her, nobody ever made the mistake of introducing herself with the line “I AM America’s Next Top Model” ever again. I admire a strong, confident woman, but I couldn’t stop laughing when she was the first to get voted off the show.

  3. Ellen Says:

    Omg, hate her!

  4. boo Says:

    She’s not model; she won’t make it far.

  5. Anna Says:

    Her face doesn’t photograph very well. I don’t see her making it far either.

  6. ANTM groupie Says:

    Thought they judged her too quickly. Judges could have told her off. Nikeysha should have gone ahead of this girl.

  7. Sharon Says:

    she doesnt change her facial expresssion in any of these pictures its bad…

  8. Donna Says:

    she just needs to stop throwing her lower lip out; it makes all her face shots look like she’s about to punch someone. Other then that I think she’s gorgeous and I wish she had not been eliminated so soon. She should go back on the show; others have gone back repeatedly.

      Hi Donna-
      Brittney is one of the models on Fashion Star which airs on Tuesday’s at 8pm with Jessica Simpson. Check her out, she’s doing well. I’m so happy for her 🙂

  9. Jlo Says:

  10. ANTM Fan Says:

    I’m sorry but I just don’t see a model in her… She’s a loudmouthed trying hard and arrogant b*tch. And with that attitude, you won’t go far..

    sharaun known as brittney is my cousin and she was and still is better than all of them from cycle 11. she should’ve stayed but i guess the judes didnt just like her but all the haters out there…..please dont hate.

  12. Maggie Says:

    I think she went on to shoot a couple decent photographs after the show. The photograph that looked like she was dancing on the beach was actually quite stunning, I was surprised.
    I personally don’t like the shape of her mouth though. It doesn’t photograph very well most of the time and she kind of scared me when she smiled in the show. But, I can see how in some angles, it can actually work and she can look very pretty.
    To be honest, this girl pissed me off so much I was so happy she got eliminated first. I hated how ignorant and arrogant she was. But if it’s true that she was actually portrayed wrongly, I don’t know… I’m sorry she had to be victimized that way by reality television.

  13. I dont like the way she treated Isis because Isis is cool and hurt someone isnt a good think to do xD
    She was very mean and I dont like that

  14. Marie Says:

    In some of these photos she reminds me of Cameron who is the head boss in Bones. In some of the photos it’s like they could be identical twins. Just the younger version.
