America's Next Top Model

Kari Jo Estes, née Schmidt was a contestant on cycle 6 of ANTM in 2006. She was the third girl eliminated and placed eleventh.


At auditions, Kari was asked to name working supermodels, to which Kari named Gisele Bündchen and Adriana Lima, and expressed she wanted to walk Victoria's Secret.

Kari was infamous in episode four for failing miserably at the six-inch heel judging challenge. She twisted her ankles at the beginning and end of the runway. She was eliminated that week over Gina.


Kari did not pursue any modeling.

She married Brian Estes, and they have a daughter named Pamela.
