Kelle Jacob was a contestant on Cycle 3 of ANTM.

This New York City, New York native has her own art gallery, which she named after her father. Her interests aren’t only limited to art, as she is also a fan of beauty. During her initial interviews, she mentioned that her friends called her a “white girl in a black girl’s body.” She also mentioned that her family was very well off. She also gained some controversy over her remarks regarding her appearance in photographs, saying that she felt she had a simian-looking jawline.

Kelle was sent to the bottom two with Ann Markley during the sixth week of America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 3. Although Tyra criticized them both for not bringing their great personalities into their pictures, the judges decided to take out Kelle, believing that she had less potential as a model. After being eliminated, Kelle remarked that she’ll try hard to build her career on her own, but did not seem overly optimistic.

After her appearance on the show, Kelle Jacob was in Source Magazine and had a cover of Eminence Magazine. She was also still in school. She has been featured in a series of documentaries about undecided voters in the 2008 presidential democrat primaries for the NY Times. She is currently not represented by an agency.

  2. boo Says:

    Omg, why was she still there? All of her photos were just ew! Very princess attitude, like she was everything, but photos don’t lie girl.

  3. datum pi Says:

    Yeah, photos do lie when you pick the worst one’s as their “best” photo. Girl got cheated! Tyra was hating on her and Ann and wanted to make examples of them to prove her false idea that “beauty doesn’t make a model.” That screen grab from the second photo shoot proves it!

    Am I the only person that thinks she looks alot like the super model Jessica white?? o.o (and I’m not saying this only because they are both black ofcorse, lol they both have this big wide-set almond eyes, same shape of lips, complexion etc… escpet Jessica White has slightly smaller nose I guess)

    I thought she was one of the prettiest girls, along side with Noelle and Ann . . maybe I just have a soft spot with girls with pretty eyes lol but She definitely had better model-like features then Jennifer, Cassie, Toccara, Yaya, Nicole . . .

  6. Terra Says:

    She photographs poorly. MUCH prettier in real life im sure. The topless jeans add pic she looks like miss jay like crazy!

    I saw this girl on the train today and recognized her that she was a ANTM contestant. I asked her and she like gave me attitude. If I wasn’t paying attention to getting on my next train, I would of love to tell her ” thats’ why you didn’t win with that stank a$$ attitude” YOU AINT NOBODY, B!TCH”!!!

    Kelle, I had an opportunity to see ANTM Cycle 3 again in which you previewed. I just want you to know that beauty is within. It appear to me that you had a complex about yourself and you lack confidence. In the art gallery, you’re in control and not being judged. You know what you know what you know about art, but you felt like you were being judged by your competitors as well as panel, that’s why you couldn’t get it together. Need a laugh, shit on the black girl trapped in a white girl’s body. I get the same remarks. I am just as dark and lovely as you are and I am up for any challenge I am faced with. Stop worring about what the people around you think and hold your head up high and work what your mamma gave ya….and what your daddy worked so hard for……Get back in the mix and show the world who “Kelle” really is.

    I wish you well in all your endeavors.

    Kelly you will never be White. Get over yourself. You are not attractive. You’re toooooooooo dark, and ugly. Glad you are forgettable.

    • RoxClem Says:

      White or not ‘rawtruth’, she still got onto a televised modelling competition because she is considered beautiful by most. You are a racist(‘rawtruth says: “Kelly you will never be White. Get over yourself. You are not attractive. You’re toooooooooo dark, and ugly. Glad you are forgettable.”‘ and i guarantee you are 100 times uglier than Kelle could ever be, even if she turned into Godzilla! You’d still be uglier than her because you are a deluded racist, and karma will get you.

  10. Cyn Says:

    She is a beautiful girl but was spoiled, she owned her own gallery or did her parents own the gallery that she ran? At nineteen years old I do know anyone who owns anything without the help of a parent!

  11. Tony W Says:

    I know Kelle personally and she’s a absolute sweetheart with a fantastic personality. I never watched the show since I met her late but I have nothing but good things to say about her. She’s beautiful inside and out.

  12. channey Says:

    her picture for the topless Levi shoot…I just never understood it. I can’t believe she didn’t have a better pic to chose from.

  13. Lethe Says:

    As far as Kelle’s skin colour goes, it’s a beautiful deep tone, and girls with that skin colour can wear strong, bright colours like no one else. I LOVE odd, off-key colours (puce?!) and very bright colors, but I am pale, pale, pale white and wearing those colors makes me look ghostly (and not in a good, goth way). Just goes to show you, you always want what you don’t have, sigh.

  14. Bev Says:

    She works for Estee Lauder now. It’s funny how she’s way prettier in person.

    And “too dark”? That’s a rude thing to say. It’s not like people can choose the skin they are born with. She is beautiful with a great face and body. The pictures from the show were hilarious though.
