Early life

America's Next Top Model

At the semi-finals, Anderson was the ninth girl called to join the final thirteen competing for America's Next Top Model, Cycle 12. Throughout the competition, she was called first three times, being widely considered versatile and naturally photogenic by the judges. She also received praise for her consistent photos which placed her in the Top 3 from Week 5 all the way to her win, her chameleon portfolio, as well as her "wind-in-the-face" look. She struggled with her final commercial, and landed in the bottom two for the first (and only) time, but survived against fellow competitor Aminat Ayinde. At the final judging, she was deemed to be neck and neck with fellow contestant Allison Harvard, but was believed to have a greater passion for modeling, making her the judges' pick for America's Next Top Model.
