Saleisha Cooper was already a model

December 13th, 2007 // 133 Comments

Saleisha Cooper the 19-year-old winner of Tyra Bank’s America’s Next Top Model is apparently already a model. After winning last night’s final episodes, diligent researches discovered that Saleisha has a past working relationship with Tyra, according to E! Online:

However, sharp-eyed fans soon dug up footage showing Saleisha walking the catwalk in an ANTM cycle-six fashion show, as well as appearing on the runway in an episode of The Tyra Banks Show.

But, wait, it doesn’t end there! Saleisha has some other modeling work under her belt that should’ve excluded her from the show:

Viewers also found that Saleisha had appeared in a nationwide Wendy’s commercial that aired in 2006, seemingly in violation of an America’s Next Top Model eligibility rule that states would-be contestants “must not have previous experience as a model in a national campaign within the last five years (including, but not limited to, appearances on television and print advertisements).”

That does seem sort of unfair. It’d be like if I competed on the new American Gladiators. It’s a documented fact that I already professionally gladiate. Just so we’re on the same page, gladiating still involves getting sloshed on egg-nog then wrestling your parent’s dog naked at Christmas dinner, right? Because I’m practically a Jedi Master at that shit.

    Where shall I begin? Ah yes! Fuck you Tyra. I have literally watched that show religiously. And Saleisha? Are you serious? This is how you repay me as a loyal fan and then to make matters worse you have apparently been sucking her dick for years! Cycle six? Tyra Banks show? Fuck you Tyra I’ll see you next cycle!

    This means I’m 9 for 9 on picking the wrong chick. Started with Elyse and ended with Chantal.

    This means I’m gonna have to try again…

    Affirmative action in, er, action.

    what I don’t like about Tyra and her show is that she is always so vocal about different body types, and somehow in the middle of the season, EVERY SINGLE TIME, somehow the plus sized model has ‘self-esteem’ issues and they immediately vote her out. As vocal as tyra is about accepting your body no matter what size, she sure as hell does always seem to pick the absolute skinniest girls of the season. I mean, look at jaslene from last cycle. For once, I would love to see tyra put her money where her mouth is and allow a pudgy girl to win it. hell, even those ‘pudgy’ plus sized models aren’t fat, so what’s the deal?

    get carl, while I agree with you that saleisha isn’t that cute, the ugliest one of their winners in my book as got to be that adrienne curry, the one that married bobbie brady. she looks like a tranny and sounds like one, too…

  6. is she really ready? I think her pose is no like a model but a chick……LOL . ugly face and hairdo.

    This Cycle was Rigged!!!!!

    They had 6 young, skinny, tall and very modelesque girls this season that actually took great photos.

    But we ended up with Tootie Carparts.
    She has no Neck, Thunder Thighs and for a girl with experience she took awful pictures.

    Type:
    “Was ANTM 9 Rigged”
    “Redeemer’s America’s Next Top Model Cycle 9 Finale Recap”
    “Top Model Scandal”
    “Middle Driving”

    All The incriminating Evidence is there

  8. ANTM sucks ass

    Maybe, just maybe, we’ll all be done a favour now this scam of a show is known for what it is and it’ll be taken off air.

    …Then again, Tyra ‘I have a dick for you’ Banks will probably put out for a few people with some of her ‘clique’ and keep the show running.

    @ #70: It’s not only black people who create shitty names. Some examples for you are Gwyneth Paltrows poor kid Apple and those wierdo’s with Shiloh. There’s plenty others, just can’t think of any right now due to a hangover.

    Racism will never die because White men will always be born with inferior sexual organs, thus the irrational rage and stupidity will live on in their short-dicked sons and equally frustated daughters who hate sleeping with their baby-dicked dads!! Bunch of internet-abusing pedophiles….

    she is my type. today i signed in http://www.sugarmommymeet.com and there were always many men talking about her how sexy and pretty … you know it is a site where rich women can seek young cute men and men can find extramarital affairs….they are picky, but they like her too.

    Tootie sucks. Lisa and Heather were the obvious beauties, and YES, modeling is about being beautiful. Saleisha is mall girl pretty, thats about it. Her ties to Tyra should disqualify, and since it didn’t, I hope she realizes she is Americas Next Tootie Model.
    That is all

    #86 All you can do is say racist things over the internet.
    Do you think you are going to get some type of “respect” from people here.

    You know that you just hide behind your computer and you would never say those things to the world.

  16. amy

    i haphazardly found this site, but in the future, i will avoid. the rascist comments are absolutely shocking–juvenile, reaction inciting, unenlightened doesn’t come close and that a forum actual provokes and endorses this behavior, i don’t want anything to do with. god bless the first amendment right, i suppose, but man, where’s the self editing? you truly know how to spread the love-congratulations.

  17. D. Richards (Lover.)

    #116? Please cunt. I say all sorts of shit in real life. You’d be shocked. And “respect”? I don’t give-a fuck about respect. The only type of respect I understand is intimidation and hatred. That’s what makes the world go ’round ,sugar.

    P.S. I post this shit on this website for myself. Because I’m my biggest fan. So. Why don’t you go back to lying face down, and ass-up?

  18. Jenna

    Lisa and Heather took the best pics, by far. They should have been the final two, Saleisha has the fucking ugliest hair cut, ever. It IS rigged. That sucks.

  19. i agree with you jenna. saleisha didnt deserve to win. i dont think she took good pictures at all. this is really the worst cycle.

    WOW! Why did this have to turn into a conversation about race…I think that it started with #9′s comments, so sad that people have to resort to such ignorance. Its amazing that people sill talk like this today…Its 2008 people WAKE UP! Look internally and heal whatever is hurting you and stop projecting your hate onto others. Honestly, Selisha is not worried about you, she will be just fine while you sit around and make disparaging remarks about her ethnicity because you really have nothing else to say. What you’ve said is nothing new we (people of color) have come to expect such ignorance. However, your hate (much to your dismay) will not stop us from being top models, award winning actors and actresses, musicians, talk show hosts, journalists, lawyers, doctors, teachers and yes even PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES….so eat your heart out, and to all of my peace loving people out there, much LOVE.

    I hate reading the comments boards on this site because it never seems to be checked for racist hate speech. What ever happened to moderating the boards??

    Unless of course The Superficial promotes racism, which come to think of it, perhaps it does.

    FRIST
    Even your username sounds ignorant. You’re probably more stupid than that dog you mention in your post. Do us all a favor, GO EDUCATE YOURSELF IGNORANT. I’ll bet they’re some ‘nigs’ who have more class than you do. Isn’t that shameful
    STUPID IDIOT

    As always the funky off looking models win. I can’t believe Nicole won.
