Elina Ivanova was a contestant during Cycle 11 of ANTM.
Based in Seattle, Washington but born in Berdichieve, Ukraine, Elina was nineteen years old during her run on America’s Next Top Model. She was known for being openly bisexual and for having difficulty opening up to the camera and judges.
Elina had her ups and downs during Cycle 11, but maintained good standing with regards to her photos. She became better and better the first four episodes of the season, winning her first reward challenge during episode 3. She continued to do well through episode 7, then she had two continual appearances in the bottom two. Incidentally, she was bottom two during two episodes where she’d also won reward challenges, which rarely happens. After her two consecutive appearances in the bottom two, she was finally eliminated during episode 11. She was the 9th girl eliminated from the show.
Elina Ivanova is now signed with TCM Models & Talent in Seattle and Vision Models in Los Angeles.
