ANTM is in its 23rd cycle and this season one of the fan favorites is an Indonesian-born beauty named CoryAnne Roberts.
The 19-year-old is daughter to famous supermodel Stephanie Roberts who graced the covers of magazines like Elle UK, Vogue, and Glamour back in the early ‘90s.
Even though CoryAnne clearly gets her modeling chops from her mother, for most of her life she lived only with her father.

Before she was recruited for the VH1 show, CoryAnne was living the life of a normal 19-year-old, attending school at the University of California, Los Angeles earning a degree in world arts and cultures.
In an interview with the Daily Bruin, the curly-haired beauty revealed that she was discovered because of her Instagram account.
“I didn’t even apply or even know the show was casting this amazing, revamped version on VH1,” CoryAnne said. “I got DM’ed by one of the casting producers over Instagram, and he encouraged me through the whole process.”
Before the show picked her up, CoryAnne held the role of manager at a Brandy Melville. "I was working here and there and I was starting to feel idle. Nothing was really changing or happening," she said. "I was hoping it would bring some change or a new project to work on. I figured I would get a good portfolio from it and meet interesting people."
The model is reaching new heights in her fame, seen most recently on E! News’ countdown to the red carpet for the 2017 Grammys and as an awards trophy model at the People’s Choice Awards.
While we didn’t know much about CoryAnne just a short time ago, we’re sure her name is going to be one to remember!
