Samantha Potter is an American fashion model, most notable as the runner-up during Cycle 11 of America’s Next Top Model.
During the fifth episode, Samantha landed in the bottom two and was almost eliminated after offending Jeremy Scott, a designer, for lifting her skirt during his runway show. The following week, Samantha received a first call out for her natural disasters shot, and received another first callout for her simplistic and dramatic shots in the eleventh episode. In the previous week, Samantha won two reward challenges consecutively in the same episode. Throughout the competition, she was part of various feuds in the Top Model house, specifically with Elina Ivanova. She ultimately became runner-up to winner McKey Sullivan.
Since the show, Potter appeared in The Big Bang Theory in the episode “The Panty Piñata Polarization,” along with contestant Analeigh Tipton, but her role was a non-speaking one.
Samantha has walked for designers Individuals by AMFI, EиD by Eva and Delia, Ready to Fish by ilja and Addy van de Krommenacker at Amsterdam International Fashion Week 2009 as part her prize in episode 10. She has also appeared as one of the “Top Models in Action” during Cycle 12.
Samantha is currently signed with L.A. Model Management.
