Esther Petrack was a contestant during Cycle 15 of ANTM.

The Boston, Massachusetts native was 18 years old during her appearance on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 15.

During initial interviews with the panel, Esther revealed that she was born in Jerusalem and is a modern Orthodox Jew. She mentioned to Tyra that she honors traditions, such as the sabbath, although she’d be willing to set her beliefs aside should the demanding job of modeling falls during her rituals.

Esther communicated to the panel that she has 30G-sized breasts, which is incredibly uncommon for women smaller than a size 2. After lifting her shirt to the judges to prove it, Tyra commented that Esther carried her G-sized cup better than she carried her own D-sized cup.

Esther was called 10th during selection of the final 14 girls.

During episode 2, Esther did well on the runway for Diane Von Furstenberg, despite the catwalk being four stories high. She did equally well during the Teen Bully photo shoot with Deborah Anderson. Mr. Jay commented that he realized that Esther’s sized G bustline won’t be a problem as far as posing or photo shoots are concerned.

While reviewing Esther’s photograph, Andre Leon Talley commented that there was much awkwardness in her photo to which he could not relate, but she was beautiful nonetheless. Trya told Esther that she has a sexy body, but she shouldn’t push to be too sexy or else she’ll look too “Maxim Magazine” as opposed to high fashion.

Esther was called 8th during elimination.

The girls were given makeovers during episode 3. Esther was given long dark hair, with which she had no problem.

During the “Fallen Angels” photo shoot with acclaimed photographer Anne Menke, it was commented that she had trouble at first, but pulled through by the end of the shoot.  While her photo was being reviewed in panel, Nigel commented that he didn’t understand what she was trying to achieve; she looked too cinematic for the concept. Tyra said that she had the same face in every shot; it was like she wasn’t there.

Due to her unimpressive performance, Esther was called 11th during elimination.

In episode 4, the girls were taken to Knott’s Berry Farm for a posing challenge on a roller coaster called The Silver Bullet. Esther was tasked to portray “sexy and bold” on the crazy coaster. While reviewing her final photograph, Nigel said he liked it.

During the “Undersea Goddess” photo shoot with Matthew Rolston, Esther and the girls got to model jewelry from Mikimoto, Neil Lane and Martin Katz. While shooting, Matthew Rolston commented that “Esther brought a quality that was unexpected, like a movie star.” Mr. Jay said she “looked dreamy.”

During judging, ALT called her photo “superb; like a young Elizabeth Taylor.” He also said he wanted to “eat her lips for breakfast.” Matthew Rolston added that “she did a great job; she brought an old Hollywood quality to the shoot.” While deliberating, Nigel said that he hadn’t seen her look that good thus far.”

Due to her strong performance, Esther was called 3rd during elimination.

In episode 5, Esther and the girls participated in a Herve Leroux runway challenge where the catwalk consisted of two fast-moving conveyor belts. Esther managed to get through the challenge, but she did stumble at the end of the runway.

During the “Lucha Vavoom” photo shoot with Brahka Squared, Eddie and Moshe Brahka commented that Esther really “understood the wrestler character.” They also added that she “had the femininity to play cute and beat you up.” Mr. Jay said she had good energy.

In panel, ALT said he loved her photo. Guest judge Karolina Kurkova said that she was “more drawn to the male wrestler in the picture than with Esther.” Tyra commented that she needed to show “more domination in her face.”

While deliberating, Karolina Kurkova added that she “loved Esther’s look out of all the other girls.”

Ultimately, Esther was called 6th during elimination.

Episode 6 began with a CoverGirl challenge. Esther and the girls were split into groups of three and had to teach the public how to use CoverGirl products. The public judged the girls and so did fashion journalist Derek Blasberg. Esther was grouped with Kayla and Kacey, which ended up being the winning group. As their prize, they got a shopping spree in Wal Mart’s CoverGirl isle. In addition, whom ever had the best makeover after their shopping spree, got to win a $1,000 gift card to Wal Mart. Esther won the gift card, as Nigel loved her final look the best.

For their photo shoot, the girls got to work with fashion stylist Lori Goldstein and world famous photographer Patrick Demarchelier on Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive. Esther got to shoot with Kayla and a male model. During the shoot, Lori Goldstein said that “Esther was quiet and subtle; not so much in your face.” She also said that she was “amazing in front of the camera.” Patrick Demarchelier said that she was “beautiful and nice.” He also said that she “moved very well,” that he “liked her smile and attitude,” and that she was “very photogenic and pretty.”

During panel, Nigel said that she was” engaging.” Patrick Demarchelier said that Esther’s walking shot was “good, elegant and flowing.” ALT said that he could “see the fashion, which makes it a great fashion picture.”

During deliberation, Patrick Demarchelier said that she was” great, but shy and nervous.” Nigel said that “her shyness was kind of cute and sweet.”

Esther’s performance earned her a 4th call out during elimination.

In episode 7, the girls were given their first challenge of the episode at the Los Angeles Grammy Museum. Esther and the girls were paired up and had to dress each other as if they were going to present an award at the actual Grammys. Esther and Jane paired up for the challenge – and unfortunately did not win the prize, which was to be an actual Grammy girl during the actual televised Grammys.

For their photo shoot with Francesco Carrozzini, Esther had to portray Christophe Decarnin, which is male. During the shoot, Mr. Jay commented that she was “a bit of a disappointment because Francisco was struggling with her. He wanted more ‘masculine’ and she wasn’t giving it.”

During panel, Nigel said that “it was a little too over the top.” Francesco Carrozzini said, “you were asked to play a character, but you’re not yourself as well. There’s not enough of yourself there.” Tyra commented that she “had a stunning bone structure, but she lost that in her close up.”

During deliberation, Nigels said, “She’s a beautiful girl, but is she a model?” Francesco Carrozzini said that she “didn’t really connect with the character or the expression.”

Because of Esther’s disappointing performance, she landed in the bottom two with Kendal.

While in the bottom two, Tyra told Esther:

“You are the girl that started slow, but then got stronger and stronger and gained momentum. When you slip back, you slip back ten notches. So the judges are nervous. One of them says that you have one look – an Esther look, which is beautiful, but the girl we’re looking for Beauty-in-Vogue needs to be a chameleon.”

In the end, Esther was chosen to stay in the competition and Kendal was eliminated.

    Lobster claw hand doesn’t belong in an elite photographer’s work! She’s not a size zero, though if she loses some weight she would get signed with an agency in NYC.

    • Sophistikatie Says:

      Susan: Haven’t you ever heard of Gisele Bündchen or even Isabeli Fontana? Or what about Eva Herzigova, or even Coco Rocha? I assure you that these models that still work ’til this day are not a size zero; they have meat and muscles on their bones and they are some of the most high-ranked supermodels currently! Also I’m guessing you just have a problem with a body with attitude, a body with shape and a unique je ne sais quoi woman. All I can say is I feel sad for you that you feel entitled to judge a book by it cover. Hopefully these words will make you think and consider to have more of an open mind for the future. And yes, the future is evolving and whether or not you like it, fashion will be evolving with it!

      • aleci Says:

        I’m a Coco Rocha fan and I know that she doesn’t get that much ad campaign because of her body. She maybe a staple of the runway though. As for the other mentioned models, they’ve entered the industry a long time ago, when the original Supermodels ruled the fashion world with their womanly bodies but the trend has dramatically changed with Kate Moss and Gemma Ward. I even honestly doubt that she would be signed immediately bec. of the size of her boobs. Yes, she can hide it with a bra underneath her clothes but what of bathing suits? lingerie? backless gowns? She’ll be very limiting.

    • Alexandra Says:

      The fashion industry is very size obsessed and that is such a bad thing, but it is getting better, your comment shocked me. I couldn’t believe someone could be so ignorant to say that because of someone being slightly curvier, they don’t BELONG in an elite photographers work. What sort of a view on the world is that? You’re living in a world filled with a variety of body shapes and you have to accept that makes them no less of a person and whatever your body shape that does not give you any less a right to participate in the fashion industry. I personally like Esther but your comment wasn’t just about her it was insulting a large amount of beautiful women. I would suggest you really think before you express such opinions in the future.

  2. travis Says:

    I love Esther! She is so high fashion! I think she really has what it takes to be a true top model. Whatever happens on ANTM, I’m sure this girl can be a true top model! I wish her good luck! Susan doesn’t know what she’s talking about!

  3. kiki Says:

    I am so afraid that she won’t get better and that she is only a beauty model. The rest of her pictures aren’t great, but this is just the beginning. We just have to wait and see if the rest are equally bad.

  4. alex Says:

    Esther is in my top 4 with Kayla, Ann and Chelsey.

  5. Richard Says:

    I love Esther. She kind of reminds me of a sexy, modern version of Anne Frank. I know that is an odd comparison and I mean no offense, but her light skin, dark hair, and striking features just make me think of Anne Frank. Anyway, I really hope to see her excel and make it far.

  6. Lana Says:

    Is it just me or does Esther, Ann and Rhianna look SO much alike?

  7. Brandi Says:

    DANG!!! Her boobs are HUGE. Did she get a boob job or something?

  8. Lana Says:

    Is it just me or does she look a lot like Ann and Rhianna.

  9. alex033 Says:

    Esther was my favorite. Along with Jane and Chris! 🙂

  10. alex Says:

    I was expecting Jane to be eliminated, but it was Esther. 😦

  11. silver nail polish Says:

    I am SO bummed Esther got out. She was one of the most beautiful ones to me, inside and out. I hope the best for her.

  12. Esther had a gift, personality and everything. Love your nice lovely makeover and her kind personality. Love You. Hahaha What a coincidence! My names is Esther too. 🙂

  13. alex Says:

    I don’t care if she has big boobs or not, she’s one of my favourites, alongside Jane, Kayla and Kendal.

  14. alexis Says:

    I really believed she was gonna make it so far. I had hoped her to the top 4 with Ann, Kayla and Jane. 😀

  15. Donna Says:

    I love her eyebrows!

    How does she hide her boobs? I seriously want to know her secret.

  16. amanda Says:

    Seriously, with over-sized busts, she won’t make it anywhere in the fashion industry. I’m glad she was eliminated.

  17. alex Says:

    I have very high hopes for Esther and Jane. Now that Jane is signed with IMG and Esther has signed with an agency in Israel, I think Esther has a slight chance of making it to Victoria’s Secret.

  18. alex Says:

    Esther’s eyebrows make her look unique.

  19. Oscar Says:

    I love Esther.

  20. Brunito Says:

    She’s so beautiful, but why does she keep her mouth open? She looks better when she keeps her lips together.

  21. Полина Says:

    I very love Esther! She very beautiful and pretty!

  22. mel Says:

    She looks like Heather Cycle 9.

  23. arrarr Says:

    I’m just wating till she comes out in SI 🙂 either that or Playboy

  24. Leigh Says:

    I dont know what it is, I just don’t like her!

  25. aleci Says:

    Her religion doesn’t allow her to be that exposed on so many things that I guess limits her experience and her capability to really transform as a model. She’s very beautiful and she can really be a model but the depth of her personality is lacking.

  26. Martin Says:

    OMG She looks so much like Scarlett Johansson!

  27. Megan Says:

    I can’t stand Esther! How are you going to go on national television and pose in a bikini and say you’re a Torah observant Orthodox Jew, seriously that disgusts me, be true to your faith or shut up and no way are her boobs a “G” pshh this girl is all about lying, she’s pretty on the outside, but ugly as sin on the inside.

    • alex Says:

      You know youre allowed to have more than one important thing in life. the fact that she was in the competition showed how important modelling really was to her, and just because she because modelling was more important to her doesnt mean that her faith isnt meaningful as well. Oh and about her boobs you would see they were a size G if you looked from the side, and have you ever heard of bras that make your boobs look smaller? Stop being ignorant and hating.

  28. Brunito Says:

    She’s a gorgeous girl but she’s no model

  29. vasou Says:

    I dont think she is pretty enough or modelish.She is ordinary, and too limiting for fashion industry. No offemce, but normal face + huge boobs, and limited clothing possibilities due to religion?

  30. lariamer Says:

    persdonally i think esther is beautiful. it is not often than a young jewish woman would be as relaxed in front of a camera in a bikini as she is and she has a gorgeous body. shes only a size 3 she just has large breasts.

  31. Katie Says:

    Very beautiful. Her face screams model. Loved this girl.

  32. fey Says:

    Esther you Rock…….take care!!!!

  33. Awesome ! beautiful image for models . Great Job keep it up !
    Thank you so much !

  34. Katherine Says:

    Esther was amazing. She should’ve gone farther. She’s got a bright career ahead of her.
