Shannon Niquette Stewart-Ratliff was a contestant on Cycle 1 of ANTM. She finished as runner up to Adrianne Curry.

Since America’s Next Top Model, Shannon has modeled for Nuj Novakhett, Elle Girl Magazine, Teen Vogue, Sydney Magazine, Six Degrees Magazine and Ford Fusion. Shannon has appeared on the cover of Arizona Foothills Magazine, and Sound & Vision Magazine.

Her runway shows include Richard Tyler, Alice and Olivia (2006), Sprite Street Couture (2006), and Elle Girl presents Dare To Be You: Wal-Mart Meets America’s Next Top Models (2005), Fashion Institute of Technology (2006), Gustavo Arango (2006), Alice Dobson (2006) and Olympus Fashion Week (2006).

During ANTM Cycle 8, Shannon told the contestants that she had switched over to Elite Model Management in Chicago. She was also signed to Bleu Model Management.

She has been featured in Cycle 11 as one of CoverGirl’s Top Models in Action.

It was no secret to the other contestants that Shannon was devout Christian, never drinking or smoking. She was also very clear that she was waiting until marriage to lose her virginity. She ended up marrying Matt Ratliff in 2007.

Since the show, Shannon continued to model, and signed with Elite Models in Chicago and Major Model Management.

    I looooved her personality and she seemed like a good girl on Cycle 1, but in all honesty, I find her look boring and forgettable.

    Nice photos. I notice there are a few Stewart models. I’m a Maori with Stewart heritage in the Appin family. Are you from my family? Just wanting to meet with my long, lost relatives. Nice photos! If you ever come to New Zealand, look me up! If we are related, it would be a pleasure
    to show you Northland and its sites. My number 09-4053866. I do hunting and fishing experiences great. Might here from you one day! Thanks for your time! If you have a family, bring them too! Alright, bye! Clinton

    Good gal through and truly.

  4. boo Says:

    She’s alright; just like the rest of the “girl next door” looks; nothing special.

  5. Makister Says:

    A great girl, but sometimes, I hate her mouth. :S

  6. olle Says:

    Her face reminds me Melrose Bickerstaff, especially when she smiles, but I like Melrose much more.

  7. dude-ish Says:

    She is supposely going to be on the Cycle 17 All-Stars.

  8. Heather Says:

    Lovely girl, but the whole judgmental, bible-thumper attitude really turned me off. I mean, really, if you are so homophobic how do you expect to make it in this industry? BLEH

  9. Anna Says:

    I always liked Shannon, she was one of my favourites from the whole series. Good to see she has gotten a lot of work out of the show. Some of them, that won, I wasn’t so sure about. Anyone, Good Luck Shannon. You deserve it.

  10. cha Says:

    She’s great, it should’ve been her and Elyse at the end of the season not Adrianne.

  11. Lilly Says:

    She kinda looks like Kesha in some pictures.

  12. ;) ;) ;) Says:

    I love this site.

  13. Katherin Says:

    It was pleasant to me more, than Adrianne

  14. She’s a chameleon, I really don’t recognize her in some of the photos 🙂

  15. drea Says:

    good for shannon! btw…her husband is HOT!!! looks like he’s a model too. they’re gonna have beautiful modelicious babies one day.

  16. aly-anon Says:

    and she said on the all star show that she’s never worn underwear before? in some of these pics, it looks like she is.

    • Says:

      She had underwear photoshoot in cycle 1.

    • lafleik Says:

      I was trying to remember if it was her or not who wouldn’t do the underwear shoot. It was ridiculous because the bikini she’d worn the previous week covered about a quarter of the skin the underwear did!

  17. Stephie Says:


  18. gerald Says:

    Shannon is my favorite girl why would they say that she looked commercial? She looked so high fshion!!!

  19. kathy Says:

    Shannon, you are no doubt, a beautiful and intelligent woman. If you are such a “christian”, how did you ever go on America’s Next Top Model in the first place? Bathing suite vs. bra and underwear??? Come on!

    I am sure that that guy jesus would not have approved.

    Be real

  20. kathy Says:

    Shannon stands by her grounds and that is great… but I sincerely think that she should not have even gone on a ridiculous, yet fun to watch show like ANTM.
    How does being a good Christian mesh with ANTM?

    Kinda ridiculous

  21. Drops Says:

    I find her boring and forgettable

  22. Olivia Says:

    Out of all the ANTM girls, she’s my most favorite. She takes amazing pictures, has a really good personality, she’s beautiful inside and out, and she has one of the best runway walks ever. She should’ve won!

  23. fredz Says:

    i hate her in cycle 17 she’s so amateur

  24. hhfhhdhh Says:

    There were many models of iconic, legendary and pioneer status over the course of the 20th century that never posed nude. And if they did the photographs were very rarely published in fashion magazines. Twiggy Lawson and Lauren Hutton are amongst the models who didn’t pose nude (though Lauren Hutton did pose nude for the first time in old age). Society was much about elegance, sophistication…the debutante archetype in fashion. Girls needed to aspire to be something and so Dovima, Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn, Suzy Parker and Carmen Dell’Orefice became their role models. I don’t dislike Shannon for choosing to not pose nude. She’s part of a dying breed of sophisticated models, but I am sad that she hasn’t modelled in Paris for Chane or Givenchy.

  25. arasevera Says:

    Good Christian? Nahhh, I don’t buy it.
    She is just an average looking girl – but add makeup and she looks like a standard 1990’s model.
    Her odd double standard (no underwear – bathing suits are OK, but not if the bathing suit LOOKS LIKE underwear? WTH?

    • Beth Linton Says:

      I am a personal friend of Shannon’s and those of you who criticized who should look in the mirror. She is exactly who she says she is and who are any of you to judge her? I am so proud of who she is and what she stands for. We need more people like her in this messed up world.

  26. Natalie Says:

    It was actually underwear that looked like a bathing suit. And I get it. Even though they might be cut the same, they might look the same, it’s different. Not in the way it looks, true, but there is something about they way you think about lingerie as opposed to bathing suits, even bikinis.

    I know her stance may have confused some people who thought it was about the amount of skin covered (or exposed), when it’s really not that at all. It’s about saving underwear for only her husband to see. I admire her for drawing that line and having the courage to stick to her guns, even when she knew she was facing possible elimination.

  27. Cari Says:

    Shannon is GORGEOUS and can be a FIERCE looking girl. She is a girl next door but she is able to transform into something completely different. The only thing I did not like was her contradictory ways dealing with under clothing. On season 1, when she first began with the show she DID do a shoot where she was wearing a bra and panties. However, when she shot on season 17 All Stars she REFUSED to wear them. I have an issue with that. I love that she stands for something but make sure you stick to. I know she can/has/and will continue to go far.

  28. Illusory Says:

    She is soooooooooooo freaking beautiful! She looks like Angel all the time! I love her smile, she eyes, she has a very good looking nose!!!!! She is just one of the most beautiful thing i have ever seen!

    Well, being a christian, i know the tension and struggles. Want to be better but can’t break the rules! She just made a definition to herself. If i were her, i don’t think i would stand for that too long. I think she is very good. She has a very good attitude, is very gentle, very adorable. But i do agree she didn’t stand out much. :/ whatever, i like her.

  29. Katie Says:

    She just seems very average.

  30. Katherine Says:

    She’s pretty, and I loved that she stood up for what she believed in. But because of her beliefs, I don’t know if modeling is for her…Well, at least certain kinds…

  31. She is beautiful! The only thing I dont like about her is her smile.

  32. Its amazing !Thank you for provide the more modeling image.Its really awesome image !

  33. Kambiz Says:

    I like to have some sex pictures of shanon. Please send me.

  34. Katie Says:

    She’s pretty, but I don’t see model. At least not high fashion. She looks like a country singer or something, but I commend her for her beliefs. Very noble. I wish she did better in the All Star cycle.

  35. Andrew Says:

    I think she was a lot more lovable after she loosened herself and hanged out with Adrianne and Elyse. is it me or was she like really tied up when she was hanging around with Robin? Shannon was so quiet and half invisible with Robin around!!

  36. gead Says:

    i love how she stood with her christian beliefs!

    • wanda Says:

      My issue was how do you go into a profession that may require you to wear very revealing clothes, rip your close off to almost nothing in front of a room full of people when doing runway shows, etc. Its like me becoming a police officer and refusing to carry a gun.

  37. Michi Says:

    I wouldn’t pick her out of a crowd, she looks like a million other blondes out there. I feel sorry for her because without her fictional god and her husband, she has no identity. Boring, unoriginal…she should just stick with small hick towns, they are normally uneducated jesus freaks. For educated modern city, she just gets lost and labeled as a hick girl who still believes in this ridiculous ancient belief written by people who believed the earth was flat.

    No neck monster!
