I think for most cycles of ANTM 5'7'' is the minimum height to be eligible as a contestant, however there has been some debate about Eva as she was roughly 5'6.5'' and not only got on the show but won.
I can believe Yaya is around 5'7''-ish as when she was in the final three with Eva and Amanda, who looked of similar height, Tyra Banks congratulated them on making it that fair and the fact they were also the three shortest girls that cycle.

actually no you don't have to be 5'7 to be on the show, I am an avid fan of that show and I remember clearly that Eva was 5'6 barley, so No you don't have to be 5'7. So given that information I don't think YaYa is 5'7.5, because she was significantly taller than Eva so I don't know about 5'8 maybe

In order to be on America's Next Top Model, you have to be at least 5'7" or else you don't qualify for the show. It states that on the application. She looks model short, so I say she is just at 5'7".
i don't think so said on 7/Jul/06
Yo, I remember yaya from my freshman year in college. I do not recall her being 5'8. Many people up their heights. I do think she's just 23 or 24 but I highly doubt she is 5'8. The other tall girls in her dance company at my school were much taller than her and they were not six feet tall, either. She does look long, though. In fact, most people who went to school with her all say the same thing: she's not that tall. I'm going with ivy. She may be 5'5 or 5'6, if that!

im her sister.
we went to the same boarding school and resemble each other quite a bit and have been confused by teachers and such for years. im 31 ( 8 yrs older to yaya's 23) and i'm 5'6. she IS 5'8. and what does it matter. i'm a dancer and i've always admired (especially when she dances) her long legs and fabulous proportion. go figure. our younger brother is 6'4 . . .we don't choose our genetics. but damn, doesn't she carry it all quite well?

I went to college with yaya and I don't remember her being that tall. She's not short; she's about 5'5 or maybe--a stretch 5'6. And, she is just 24.

If her agency says she is 5'8, then she must be an inch or two shorter.

Nigerian chicks are usually pretty tall, so I wouldn't be surprised if she's taller.

she is barely 5'7. and she is 28!!! not 22 or 24 as they say on the sites. i have friends who went to boarding school and college with her.
[Editor Rob: this, I really think is true...well, the height part, not sure about the age stuff ;)]

Okay, if she looks 5'7" to you,then what about Eva Pigford??? She will look 5'3.5" then.. eik...how?
Serene said on 19/Apr/06
Yaya isn't that short.. is she? She can't be shrinking at this age!!!
She is tall in the American Next Top Model.. looking 5'9".. and she is about 3-4 inch taller than Eva Pigford..you know.
[Editor Rob: the thing is, beside Rob Brown who is a 6ft 1er, she looks more 5ft 7!]
