America's Next Top Model

Eboni Cymone Davis, better known as Ebonee Davis, was a contestant on cycle 18 of ANTM in 2012. She was eliminated in fifth place.


Eboni was known as the well-educated girl, as well as the youngest girl at eighteen. In episode two, she was accidentally burned by a curling iron at makeovers, and had a mark on her cheek.

In episode three, when Tyra gave all the girl intoxibella powers, she told Eboni she was "30-Never" and had to retain a youthful appearance. Throughout the season, she was criticized for not wearing pigtails, including outside of panel, to Eboni's anger.

In episode four, she was one of the girls to fought with Kyle at the product selling challenge. In episode five, she did an amazing job at the maple syrup photoshoot in Toronto, and received the first call-out.

In episode eight, she did a poor job at the Hello Kitty photoshoot, and was put in the bottom two with Seymone. She was saved due to having more potential.

In episode ten, she struggled again at the Macau tower photoshoot. She was put in the bottom two again with Alisha, and eliminated. Alisha later quit and both girls were sent home together. Many fans noted the hypocrisy between this judging and the cycle 9 judging with Ebony and Ambreal.
