We fell in love with Eva Marcille as a contestant on AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL (third cycle).
Eva ended up winning the third cycle of America’s Next Top Model, beating fellow contestants Yaya DaCosta, Amanda Swafford, and Ann Markley. At the time, she became the first African American to win ANTM.
Her powerful and inspiring speech that closed Cycle 3 of America’s Next Top Model was:
“This little tomboy from L.A. that has never been beautiful. I was not the cute girl in school. I came here the shortest and the one that had the most insecurities inside of them, and now I’m America’s Next Top Model. And I get to represent all the little girls who feel the way I feel… Watch out word, here comes Eva. Ha!”
Since then, Eva has continued to climb up the ladder of success.
Eva has appeared on the cover of Brides Noir, Women’s Health and Fitness (May 2005), King magazine (June 2005), IONA (November 2005), and Essence magazine. Her other modeling credits include CoverGirl, DKNY, Samsung, Red by Marc Ecko, Jewel magazine, In Touch Weekly magazine (June 2005), Kingmagazine (November 2005), WeTheUrban Magazine, IONA, UNleashed magazine, Star Magazine, Elle, Elle Girl, Applebottoms, Lerner Catalog, Avon Campaign 4 and Rolling Out.
She is back on the dating scene after her longtime relationship with Kevin McCall did not work out. However, she has been hinting around that there just might be someone new in her life already.
Eva has guest-starred on several series. She also appeared in Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne”. She also appeared on Reality shows “Real husbands of Hollywood” and “About the business”.
Eva is on her work grind, and shows no interest in slowing down. Her goal is to keep her name ‘hot’ in Hollywood.
We love you Eva. Keep Shining!
