On September 10, 2012, the Huffington Post posted an article regarding Cycle 8‘s Jael Strauss and a recent news story about her appearance on Dr. Phil for an intervention about her meth addiction. Here is the text from the article (Posted by HuffPo Staff):

Jael Strauss Battles Meth Addiction On Dr. Phil; Former ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Contestant’s Struggle (VIDEO)

Jael Strauss, a former contestant on “America’s Next Top Model,” has been struggling with an addiction to meth and now, Dr. Phil is trying to help.

Strauss’s family contacted “Dr. Phil” (weekdays, syndicated) to help stage an intervention for the 28-year-old woman, but in the below preview of the episode, which airs on Thursday, September 13, it doesn’t look like Strauss wants the help. The “full-blown meth addict,” as Dr. Phil refers to her, physically fights to resist coming to the set of “Dr. Phil.” After finally agreeing and heading to the show, she runs away from the set and Dr. Phil heads outside to talk to her on the Paramount lot.

The now-struggling Strauss starred on Cycle 8 of “Top Model” and had to deal with a friend’s death from an overdose while appearing on the show in 2007. The experience really shook her “America’s Next Top Model,” but apparently wasn’t enough to keep Strauss herself away from drugs.

Check out the episode description and preview below and tune in for “Dr. Phil” (syndicated, weekdays) on Thursday, September 13 to see what happens.

At 22, Jael was an aspiring model and finalist on the hit show “America’s Next Top Model.” But at 28, Jael’s family says she’s losing her battle with drug addiction. Don’t miss what happens minutes before she’s to appear on Dr. Phil’s stage. Can Dr. Phil convince her to stop running and commit to getting well?

In September of 2009, Zimbio.com interviewed Cycle 6’s Jade Cole following her elimination and appearance on the show. Here is the text from the introduction accompanied with a video interview (written and posted by Alicia):

Zimbio at New York Fashion Week: An Interview with Jade Cole

One of my biggest hopes going into fashion week was that I’d get the chance to catch up with an ex-ANTM girl. At the MCM New York launch party last night, my dreams came true: I got to chat with Cycle 6’s Jade Cole. Yes, that Jade: the snapping poet whose hair Tyra chopped off and dyed orange.

Ms. Cole’s been out of the country for a while, working in South Africa and Hong Kong (she joins the ranks of many an ex-ANTM model, including Cycle 5 winner Nicole). She’s just moved to Los Angeles, where she’s breaking into the film industry – she stars in Jamie Foxx’s newest music video. She’s also writing an autobiography about her life before America’s Next Top Model, which will include some of the poetry that made her the cycle’s most famous contestant.

When asked about the current season, in which all the contestants are under 5’6″, Jade was frank: “It’s kind of sad because [Tyra’s] giving false hope to young girls. Because in this harsh reality of the fashion world, let’s face it, being 5’6″… it’s not going to happen.”
