Kahlen was the runner up of America's Next Top Model cycle 4. She has said she never watched the program before she went to the auditions for the show.
Kahlen: (asked if she's ever modelled before) I had, I tried in Dallas, and I modelled for, about, two weeks. But other than that... Well, it wasn't really modelling, I fell for one of those scams, where you pay...
Kahlen: Making other people happy is what makes me happy.
Kahlen: (asked which shot in her portfolio she is the most proud of) Well, I didn't like the Wonder Bra shoot or the one where we were dancing and posing, but I adored my Zodiac shot and the animal one. The first shoot we did, as the aliens, was probably one of my favorite as well. I enjoyed the shots where we put on all the makeup and transformed. They were the most fun.
Kahlen: I do kinda transform when I get in front of the camera 'cos it gives me a chance to show my girly side.
Kahlen: I'm such a tomboy.
