23. AMANDA SWAFFORD

Featured in: Cycle 3
Swafford was known for being the first legally blind contestant, yet also the one who stunned judges when her perfect photos didn't need any retouching after one of the challenges. Throughout the season, we watched this blonde beauty struggle with retinitis pigmentosa, a degentive eye condition that was supposed to leave her completely blind by 30. Now at 32, Swafford continues to model and fortunately still maintains partial vision.
