rica's Next Top Model, Cycle 7. She is one of the most successful contestants post-show.

America's Next Top Model

Eugena made a strong first impression at casting when she stated that she thought that the girls of Cycle 6 were boring. She was the 4th girl selected to be in the final 13. She became good friends with Monique Cahloun despite the fact that she had stolen her bed. After getting long hair as her makeover she won the make-up challenge but landed in the bottom two the following week because of her weak pictures but was saved as Monique had missed her photoshoot and as such went home. She then won another challenge on extreme posing.

Her photos became better about half way through the cycle but she landed in the bottom two again because Tyra Banks thought she had a condescending attitude but was saved again. Praised for her strong improvement in the following weeks, she won a third challenge on flamenco posing but was eliminated on her third bottom two appearance as the judges felt that fellow competitor Melrose was more consistent. On the show she was known for confronting Melrose quite a few times but stated in a post show interview that they were now friends[1].
