Dominique Reighard was a contestant during Cycle 10 of ANTM.
Dominique Reighard was a 23-year-old receptionist from Columbus, Ohio. Dominique was mostly known for her drag queen/tranvestite facial qualities, the botched makeover she received, and her knock-down, drag-out fight with Claire and Whitney over her alarm clock. Dominique’s performance on the show began somewhat weak, but began to improve greatly after she was almost eliminated in episode two. In the end, Dominique came in fourth behind winner, Whitney Thompson.
During episode two, Top Model makeovers, Dominique’s makeover included a short cut and a dark brown dye for her hair. Because it didn’t have the ‘edge’ that Tyra originally wanted, her hair was later re-dyed dark blonde. Frequently during the series, Dominique’s facial structure was compared to that of a transvestite. Both Mr. Jay and Ms. Jay referred to her as “very drag” at times. On the other hand, Dominique’s poses were compared to that of a ballerina.
During her stint on ANTM, Claire scolded Dominique because her clock woke her up. It wasn’t the first time that the girls were disrupted by Dominique’s alarms. Annoyed with the noise, most of the girls sided with Claire. The argument went so bad that Claire called Dominique a few choice words. Dominique then asked Claire if she talks to her husband that way, to which Claire answered, “at least I have a husband.” (Dominique has one child but is not married.)
There was also a time when Dominique was feeling sick but the other girls continued to be rude to her. Claire, Whitney and Lauren badmouthed Dominique even when they were all in the same room. One night after midnight, Dominique was trying to get some rest. She told the girls to take their nastiness and attitude somewhere else. The girls ignored her and continued to talk about her as she tried to sleep.
Dominique also had a word fight with Whitney after the latter said she had no respect for Dominique. Whitney also attacked her lack of education. She responded by calling Whitney a racist. Dominique was later seen calling her mom and saying that the other girls were ganging up on her
During the seventh episode, Dominique, Stacy Ann and Whitney had the pleasure of winning the go-sees challenge and were rewarded with photo shoots for Seventeen magazine’s June issue.
