America's Next Top Model

Ebony Morgan is a nursing student. She participated in cycle 9 of ANTM in 2007, where she quit in ninth place.


During the cycle, Morgan was constantly criticized by Tyra, being called out on her diva behavior at the semi-finals. She was also judged for her poor posture and defeatist attitude at panel

Tyra even stated that she would have got the first call-outs in the nature photoshoot and gargoyle photoshoot if she had just relaxed and smiled in panel. However, she was praised for her improvement in those weeks.

She eventually quit, stating she didn't feel happy anymore, and Tyra allowed her to leave the competition, sparing Ambreal, who was the original eliminee.

Ebony later stated in an interview that she just pretended to be a diva to be sure to get in the competition. She also stated that she did collect her photo and joined the other girls for her last panel, but she was asked to re-shoot and make it look like she quit then and there.


Ebony did not pursue any modeling.

She was nominated for Most Dramatic Exit at the Fiercee Awards, but lost to Kimberly Rydzewski.[1]
