Meet Erika Othen, a True Beauty season two contestant. Erika was born and raised in Long Island, New York. She is twenty five years old. It was early on in her life that Othen knew she was destined to be an entertainer. Whether she fulfilled her dreams as a “Disney Princess” or became a famous singer, Othen knew that as long as she was involved with the arts in some way she would be happy.

Growing up Erika attended a high school that was predominantly for those kids interested in music and the arts. Throughout her attendance she was able to participate in various activities including jazz and show choirs, school play productions and the like.

It was when Erika landed the role as Lois Lane in a production of Superman the Musical that she knew she wanted to be a star. After she graduated from high school, Othen signed on with a modeling agency and began working various catalog and commercial print gigs. Her first national modeling campaign was with Star City Jeans. Not only has Othen been featured on popular magazines Vanity Fair and Maxim, she has worked with photographers Fadil Berisha, Frizzycube, Annie Leibovitz and Michelle Scott.

For you Making the Band fans, you may recognize Othen from season three. She was chosen to compete alongside 19 other girls for a spot in Diddy’s up-and-coming girl group.

After six grueling weeks of competition, Erika was eliminated from the show. But being given the boot didn’t stop Othen from pursuing her dream of entertaining. Erika remained in New York to audition for roles, write and record her own music all while taking acting classes to improve her craft.

Othen has had bit parts in various movies, but getting signed onto Ashton Kutcher’s True Beauty may get Erika the attention she needs! Let’s just hope Erika Othen isn’t too much of a conceited beotch.
