Career[edit | edit source]
America's Next Top Model[edit | edit source]
In 2013, Miller appeared in Cycle 20 of the CW Network reality television show America's Next Top Model, in which she competed against fifteen other aspiring models. In the competition, Jourdan was one of the front-runners, having never placed below fifth after the third episode, where she was placed tenth. She was one of the strongest of her cycle, having won a total of three challenges and received six first call-outs and one jourdan's paint photograph was deemed by Tyra Banks as one of the best produced in the history of the show. In Week 8, Jourdan failed to book any shows during LA Style Fashion Week. At the final runway show in Bali, Miller faced difficulty when she accidentally stumbled with her stilettos on her gown. Despite this, the judges were still impressed by her walk. At the final deliberation, the judges noted Miller's command on the runway, her fluidity, as well as her high-fashion and girl-next-door appeal. She would eventually beat fellow competitor Marvin Cortes in the season finale, becoming the twentieth winner of America's Next Top Model.
Miller's win also means that she is the sixth winner of America's Next Top Model to have never made an appearance in the bottom two, along with Jaslene Gonzalez, McKey Sullivan, Nicole Fox, Krista White and Sophie Sumner. She is also the second winner of the show to have received a total of six first call-outs after Ann Ward, the winner of cycle 15.
After winning America's Next Top Model, Miller received a modeling contract with NEXT Model Management in Los Angeles, an eight-page spread in the December/January 2014 issue of Nylon magazine and a $100,000-ad campaign with Guess.
