The CW reveals the identities of its 'America's Next Top Model 8' girls


By Christopher Rocchio and Steve Rogers, 02/01/2007 

The CW has revealed the wannabe models that will be strutting the runway during the eighth season of America's Next Top Model, which is scheduled to premiere with a two-hour episode on Wednesday, February 28 at 8PM ET/PT.

Just like the last three editions of the show, Top Model 8 will feature 13 girls (one girl fewer than the franchise record 14 contestants that the show's third and fourth seasons featured) and a judging panel comprised of Tyra, supermodel Twiggy, photographer Nigel Barker, and runway expert J. Alexander. As in previous seasons, Top Model 8 will also feature additional special guest judges.

As the show has done since Top Model 4, Top Model 8's girls lived in a posh Los Angeles mansion during the already-filmed show's production.  The eighth edition's winner will receive the same prize package that was introduced in this fall's Top Model 7 -- a management deal with Elite Model Management, a $100,000 contract with cosmetics company CoverGirl, and a cover story appearance in an issue of Seventeen magazine.

Top Model 8's cast ranges in age between 19 and 24 and includes five college students.  However none of the finalists are from California -- a noteworthy fact given more than half of last season's Top Model cast had called The Golden State their home. Following its special two-hour premiere, Top Model 8 will air regularly in the show's normal Wednesdays at 8PM ET/PT time period.

The 13 women competing on the eighth season of America's Next Top Model are:

- Brittany Hatch, a 21-year-old bartender from Savannah, GA

- Cassandra Watson, a 24-year-old college student from Seattle, WA

- Diana Zalewski, a 21-year-old college student from Garfield, NJ

- Dionne Walters, a 20-year-old college student from Montgomery, AL

- Felicia, a 19-year-old sales associate from Houston, TX

- Jael Strauss, a 22-year-old band manager from Detroit, MI
 
- Jaslene Gonzalez, a 20-year-old online college admissions advisor from Chicago, IL
 
- Kathleen DuJour, a 20-year-old hairstylist from Brooklyn, NY

- Natasha Galkina, a 21-year-old college student from Dallas, TX

- Renee DeWitt, a 20-year-old stay-at-home-mom from Maui, HI

- Samantha Francis, a 19-year-old sales associate from Pinson, AL

- Sarah Vanderhaar, a 20-year-old photographer from Lake Zurich, IL

- Whitney Cunningham, a 21-year-old college student from West Palm Beach, FL
