7. SALEISHA STOWERS

Featured in: Cycle 9
Early on in Stowers' season, there was some debate about her eligibility to compete due to her previous modeling work (i.e., an appearance in a Wendy's ad) and participation in Tyra Bank's self-esteem camp, Camp T-Zone. But it was ultimately decided that her gig wasn't quite on the level of Kim Kardashian's Carls Jr. commercial and her past relationship with Banks was virtually non-existent, so it was all good. Ironically, Stowers would eventually win that season.
