Cycle 6: Danielle Evans (now known as "Dani")

We weren't sure Dani could win "Top Model" with her accent and gap in between her front teeth. She fought, though, and surprised us all. She ended up being one of the more successful models to come out of the franchise. While part of the prize is a Cover Girl contract, Dani is one of the few winners to have hers renewed and go on to do commercials with celebrity Cover Girls like Queen Latifah. She has walked in runway shows for Baby Phat and Pastry as well as appeared in print campaigns for Essence Magazine and Sephora. She is also the spokesmodel for the Akademiks clothing line.
