Before the show
Michelle was a professional wrestler but wanted to get into modelling.
Michelle was selected to be part of cycle 4 where she took a lot of good pictures but struggled with her confidence, especially when she got impetigo, which the other girls believed to be a flesh eating bacteria. She also came-out as bisexual on the show, confiding in Noelle Staggers and getting support from Tiffany Richardson and Brandy Rusher. She was eventually eliminated in South Africa, having reach the 6th spot, because the judges felt her lack of self-confidence was too hard to overcome.
