ANTM

Kim was known for her very boyish appearance. She constantly was critiqued for being too masculine in photos and in person. In episode four, she made a disclaimer at judging about her walk for the judging challenge, which put her in the bottom two. She received the first call-out in episode seven for looking her most feminine in the pin-up photoshoot, and was called first again on episode ten due to her soft and feminine phonebooth photograph.

Kim was also known for having a relationship with Sarah, who made out with her in the limo in episode two. They were also suggested to be having sex in episode four, Sarah's elimination week.

In episode eleven, Kim saw Bre pouring Nicole's Red Bulls in the sink. She told Nicole, and she and Bre got into an argument. Bre called Kim out in judging, and later said she was an "ugly person with an ugly personality". Kim was eliminated for her lackluster Birth Of Venus photo.
