Marvita originally auditioned for cycle 9, where she talked about being molested and raped at a young age. She also clashed with Ebony at the dinner table. She did not advance.
She auditioned again for cycle 10, where she had a huge rivalry with Fatima. When Fatima revealed her genital mutilation, Marvita asked if she felt less of a woman, to which all the girls ridiculed her for.
In episode two, backstage after the first runway show in times square, Fatima slapped Marvita across the face by accident. Marvita thought she did that to provoke her and get her disqualified. Fatima later apologized to her at the house.
She was given a "horsemane" makeover, which Tyra said was something that she invented. She got second call-out for her surprisingly sexy lingerie photo.
She was eliminated in episode five over Whitney, because the judges felt like she gave up.
Marvita has signed to Ikon Model Management. She appeared in Ebony magazine in December 2008, and Supermodels Unlimited. She has walked for BET's Rip the Runway in 2009.
- Marvita is the fifth girl to audition twice. She is after Nargis Fahkri, Mary Nnenna, Tiffany Richardson and Jaslene Gonzalez.
