Cassandra Watson was a contestant during Cycle 8 of ANTM.
This 24-year-old college student is an aspiring model from Seattle, Washington. Before she appeared on Cycle 8 of America’s Next Top Model, she was in the middle of completing her tertiary education and had been modeling on a part-time basis with the Seattle Models Guild.
Cassandra auditioned for America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 8 after a woman in a store where Cassandra was shopping approached her and told her that she would be a perfect candidate for the modeling show. For her makeover, she received a new Afro hairstyle (which she maintained for a few months after her exit), and did not mind posing nude for the third photo shoot. However, the judges expressed their disappointment over Cassandra’s third set of pictures, and subsequently eliminated her from the competition.
Cassandra is currently signed with Look Model Agency in San Francisco and SMG Models in Seattle.
