Remember Her? ANTM Contestant Comes Clean About 6-Year Meth Addiction

September 12, 2012  |  


Consider this your “Don’t do drugs” PSA for the day.

A former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant who we haven’t seen in a long time is headed back to our television sets, but this time the reason is not so pleasant. Jael Strauss, who participated in the 8th cycle of Tyra Banks’ model competition, is set to appear on an intervention-style episode of “Dr. Phil” tomorrow when her family confronts her about her addiction to methamphetamine

The biracial tough-girl from Detroit has been addicted to meth for six years, which means she was doing drugs while she was apart of the ANTM cast in 2007. The 28-year-old was even informed that one of her friends had died of a drug overdose while taping the show, but the sad news wasn’t enough to curb her own addiction as viewers will learn when they watch her on the “Dr. Phil” show tomorrow.

From the clip, it appears Jael still may not be ready to face her demons as she hesitates, and possibly even refuses, to come on the stage and discuss her issues with her family and Dr. Phil in front of the audience. Let’s hope a detox clinic and a drug-free lifestyle is in her future as Jael realizes not only how drugs have affected her physically, as we all can tell, but also mentally and emotionally.

Do you remember Jael from ANTM?
