America's Next Top Model contestant Ashley Howard has perhaps one of the most bizarre (and lucky) reality TV casting stories of all time: all it took was one glance from Tyra Banks during a taping of The Tyra Show, and Ashley earned herself an appointment to try out for the special short models season of America's Next Top Model.
Once in the house, as we saw in weeks past, Ashley ran into problems both on and off camera. As the competition heated up and tensions in the house rose, her dancing background (and lack of modeling experience) began to catch up with her, and after Tyra sent Ashley home for not yet being able to harness her dancer's body in the right way for modeling.
