America's Next Top Model

Gina Choe was a contestant on cycle 6 of ANTM in 2006, where she was the fourth girl eliminated, placing tenth.

Early Life

Gina was working as a Korean Translator before the show.


Gina was known for being insecure with her Asian heritage. At castings, she says to Tyra and the Jays that she doesn't date Asian men, which turns them off. Despite this, she makes the top thirteen.[1]

In episode two, she starts a heated rivalry with Jade. Jade criticizes Gina's insecurities after the first challenge.

She was put in the bottom two in episode four for her low confidence and having the worst fairytale photo, but was shockingly saved over Kari.

Episode four, at a dinner with Janice Dickinson, she asks Gina who her bully is, she points to Jade, to which Janice yells at her You don't rat out your bitches!" Later, the runway challenge involves holding a live cockroach, giving Gina a meltdown. She had to be pushed onto the runway. She was eliminated that week over Brooke.


Gina signed to no agency, but did take some test shots. She was also in a Nokia N70 ad.[2]
