Kesse Wallace was a contestant on Cycle 1 of ANTM.

Wallace coined the acronym DIVA in the attempt to describe herself in the most accurate way. DIVA wittingly stands for Devastating, Intriguing, Vivacious and just plain All That. She was raised a devout Baptist and  majored in accounting in college.

On the sixth week, the show flew Kesse and the other remaining Top Model finalists to Paris, where they were asked to pose with a male model wearing only lingerie. The challenge allowed a number of Parisian designers to view the models, and although all of them tried their best to produce spectacular pictures, the judges felt that Kesse did not possess enough desire to advance in the competition. Consequently, Kesse became the sixth finalist to be eliminated.

Since appearing on the show, Kesse has gone on to work under the management of Gilla Roos. Her runway projects include Yeohlee Teng Fall 2005/Spring 2006, and Francis Hendy. Kesse has also graced the pages of King Magazine and Complex Magazine and has appeared in a Church’s Chicken television commercial.

    I loved Kesse! One of my favorites of the first cycle.

  2. kathy Says:

    Your pics on ANTM looked great, but the other pics make you look like a pin-up chick looking for a one-night stand. I guess all the training Tyra gave you went right out the door.

  3. I love Kesse Wallace of Cycle 1. She is one of my favorite girls in the house.

  5. kiki Says:

    Kesse was an awesome model. I think she and Elyse should have been in the top two. It was stupid to send her home.

  6. kelvin Says:

  11. I thought she was great on the show. I can’t believe some of the others survived longer than her. She should have been in the finale for sure.

    Kesse was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! She was sent home before Robin, wow…Tyra and all of those judges made a bad decision, in my opinion. She made beautiful pictures, I don’t know why she was sent home in the fourth too end of the cycle. :3
