America's Next Top Model

Nnenna Agba is an American fashion model, who was a contestant on cycle 6 of ANTM in 2006. She placed sixth overall.

Early Life

Nnenna stated that she was raised in Nigeria but later sent back to the US due to her father wanting a better life. When she was 11, her mother died while giving birth to her fifth and last sister.[1]

ANTM

Nnenna was known as the front-runner early on in the cycle. She received the first first-call-out in the bald photoshoot and won three challenges in episodes two, three and five.

Her head was shaved during makeovers after the judges expressed their approval of her look at the bald shoot.

During the season, Nnenna had constant fights and arguments with her boyfriend, John, over the phone. This was mostly due to the episode four photoshoot with male models, whom she kissed while posing. All of the other girls were complaining that Nnenna was taking too much time on the phone.

She was eliminated in episode eight.

Post-Show

Since Top Model, Nnenna has signed with MC2 Management in New York City.[2] She has graced the covers of Onyx Style, Time Out London and True Love. She was also in Essence and modeled for the clothing brand Lulu.
