Katie Cleary was a contestant on cycle 1 of ANTM in 2003. She was the second girl eliminated and placed ninth.

Early life

Cleary comes from Glenview, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago and graduated from Glenbrook South High School in 2000. Before the show, Katie was a student at university majoring in marketing and business.


On the show, Katie was one of the first eight girls to be selected to compete. She was known for being a strong animal rights activist in her interview.

In both of her photoshoots, she was critiqued for being too sexy and mens magazine. In episode two, Elyse mentioned Katie in her confessional rant, calling her the fakest person she ever met. She was in the bottom two with Kesse that week due to her overly strong sexiness, and she got eliminated.
