Question: Megan Morris was my favorite contestant on America’s Next Top Model, and I have kept an eye out for her in magazines and ads ever since she was on the show. Is she still modeling?

Megan Morris

Answer: I recently came across an interesting video online in which the out former ANTM contestant talked about her experience with so-called "reality" television in Tyra’s kingdom.

I guess it’s not much of a surprise to hear a reality TV survivor talk about how orchestrated a show like ANTM can be, but it’s great that Morris got the chance to represent herself on her own terms in response to the show.


I tracked Morris down to ask her what she’s up to these days, and this is what she told me:

I live in San Francisco, California. I began a prosperous company called MediZed. It’s a visual effects house using 3D animation dedicated to companies with products or a spaces (like real estate or medical device) that either A.) doesn’t exist yet or B.) needs to be shown in a scale and in a way that video just doesn’t easily capture. We then are able to leverage that content to capture the story of the company, and help humanize their brand through new rich media. It’s a TON of fun.

As for modeling, it was very much not for me. But it’s a great side job if you’re half serious about it and can use it to help leverage yourself to pursue what you’re really passionate about. I really only wake up for two things, my dog Nola, and MediZed.

So if you want to keep track of Morris, you’ll have better luck following her and her new company on Twitter than you will flipping through the pages of Vogue.
