Dani Evans recently opened up about her time on Tyra Banks' reality competition, America's Next Top Model.
Evans made headlines earlier this week after a clip between her and Banks from 2007 went viral. During ANTM's seventh season, which Evans won, Banks told her she needed to fix the gap in her front teeth. The host, along with her panel of judges, felt the eventual Season 7 winner would have a difficult time booking photoshoots if she kept her teeth as they were. Although Evans was opposed to closing her gap, she eventually broke down and went through with the makeover.
Once the video from ANTM resurfaced online, multiple social media users expressed how seeing Banks critique Evans' appearance affected them. Fellow model Slick Woods shared on Instagram that the clip upset her and made her think of the times she was bullied for her own gap.
In an Instagram live video, Evans said it was Woods' words that inspired her to share her side of the story. According to Essence, she explained to her 86,300 followers she initially didn't want to speak about the viral footage to the public.
