ANALEIGH TIPTON stars in the highly anticipated, soon-to-be-released Whit Stillman-directed feature film "Violet Wister's Damsels in Distress."

She was then sold to a Saudi Arabian prince but managed to get out of the situation before the deal was finalized. After landing in the bottom 2 in the episode "You're Beautiful, Now Change" for not using her ice-skating moves to her advantage, she rebounded and appeared in the top three for seven consecutive weeks.

She also won the go-sees challenge, by booking all three of her go-sees she went to and getting back on time. In a challenge won by Elina Ivanova, Ivanova shared her prize with Marjorie Conrad and Tipton; they appeared alongside each other in the December 2008/January 2009 issue of Seventeen magazine.
