America's Next Top Model

Potter performed strongly from the start of the competition. However, in the fifth episode, Potter landed in the bottom two and was almost eliminated after offending Jeremy Scott, a designer, for lifting her skirt during his runway show. The following week, Potter received a first callout for her natural disasters shot, and received another first callout for her simplistic and dramatic shots in the eleventh episode. In the previous week, Potter won two reward challenges consecutively in the same episode, a Top Model first. Throughout the competition, Potter was part of various feuds in the Top Model house, specifically with Elina Ivanova.

At 18, Potter joins Cycle 1's Shannon Stewart and Cycle 10's Anya Kop as the youngest contestants to compete in the final runway show. Stewart and Kop were also the runner-ups of their respective cycles.
