Tessa Carlson was a contestant on Cycle 1 of ANTM.
For the very first challenge on America’s Next Top Model, the ten finalists were asked to model swimsuits from actress Jennifer Lopez’ clothing line, J.Lo. The photo shoot was held on the rooftop of a tall Manhattan building. The weather was terribly cold, making the challenge more difficult for the contestants.
Tessa was the first eliminated from the show because after the judges reviewed their pictures from the photo shoot, they felt that Tessa didn’t know how to pose.
Tessa didn’t pursue modeling after the show.
