This is slightly old news, but I just came across a few people sounding in on the situation, so I thought we should add it to the watercooler.
Jael Strauss, a former contestant during cycle 8 of ANTM was already fighting demons when she appeared on the show.
Sadly, it appears her demons got the best of her and she’s been struggling with a meth addiction. This information came to light when she appeared on the Dr. Phil show.
It’s hard to believe this can be the same girl.
Addiction is a tragic disease and we can only hope that Jael will be able to get the help she needs to overcome her dependency.
A few former Top Model winners have weighed in on the subject:
CariDee English thinks Tyra’s abandonment after the show
makes it hard for the models to continue on.
See CariDee’s words here.
Cycle 10 Plus Size winner Whitney Thompson agrees modeling is hard
but that has nothing to do with Jael’s problems.
See Whitney’s words here.
What’s your opinion, Gasmii?
