Charleston's Molly O'Connell advances on 'America's Next Top Model'

Molly O'Connell

Call her the Charleston Chameleon.

Molly O'Connell is one of three finalists on the CW's series "America's Next Top Model."

O'Connell, 23, won the best photo of the week before being selected to move on.

Drawn from 14 original contestants, four remaining young women were judged on the Wednesday show by Daniella Issa Helayel, Tyra Banks, Andre Leon Talley and Nigel Barker. One contestant was kicked off.

O'Connell immediately appeared safe when the panel critiqued her: Barker, a photographer, was pleased with O'Connell's relationship with the camera, saying she had the "chameleon factor."

Former supermodel Banks praised O'Connell for her "fabulous" modeling and selling of the clothes. She cautioned the competitor not to appear too serious.

The eventual winner will receive a contract with IMG Models, a fashion spread in Vogue Italia, a spread and cover of Beauty in Vogue, and a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl Cosmetics.

The show airs on the cable channel CW14.
