  • Quotes

    • Jael Strauss: For me, I feel my best photos are captured when I release my fears and am not self-conscious. When I allow myself to be the most vulnerable in addition to high energy, I take good photos.

    • Jael Strauss (On ANTM): I came in as myself, and left as myself. I was the best me that I could be - 110 % - like everything else I try to do.

    • Jael Strauss (On the nude pictures of her which surfaced on the internet): I don't regret anything I've done in my life. I think the photos were done tastefully, and I think that women are beautiful, clothed or unclothed.

    • Jael: When I was young, my next-door neighbor, for a brief period, had this Shar Pei that was just kind of wrong in the head. She was alternately sweet and aggressive and her saliva had the consistency of mayonnaise.

    • Jael: I think that I made my best attempt to do the CoverGirl commercial. I felt a little bit out of character obviously, and you know, I gave it a good try. I feel that I'm not really the stereotypical bubbly CoverGirl kind of girl. I didn't pull it off, but no regrets.

    • Jael: Sydney, Australia was awesome and amazing. I can't wait to go back there. I've never been overseas before, like this show took me to Sydney!

    • Jael: Before I was on America's Next Top Model I was managing bands in Hollywood and doing promotions for bands in Detroit. I decided to try out for the show because I got scouted on my MySpace from one of the casting directors. I figured I should just, you know, give it a try. People have been telling me I should be on the show for a long time so I figured, why not?

    • Jael Strauss (To her fans): I'd like to let all my fans know that I really, really thank you so much for your support and I hope that I gave all of us misfits a place to call home. Always stand up and be true to yourself no matter what any judges say about you.

    • Jael Strauss (On ANTM): I have seen the show before and I remember watching the show and thinking, "I can do that, that's easy." And after having been on the show, I feel like a fool for ever thinking that!

  • She is on ANTM Cycle 8.

    Great! She is my favorite on America's Next Top Model! I hope she wins! She takes awesome pictures and she deserves she should win because her friend died and she still can do a great picture without showing her angryness. Everyone says she is like Jade just because of the voice but doesn't mean she is like Jade! I liked Jade but Jael is so cool!! I just really hope she wins! Well I don't know what else to say about her and that pretty much covers all of it that she is awesome and the best person on ANTM Cycle 8!!!moreless
