Jessica Wild was known for her fashion, her makeup skills, her hair styling, and her sweetness and charm that she brought to the show.
Jessica Wild's elimination was one of the most heartfelt and controversial throughout Season 2.
Jessica was eliminated in the seventh episode.
The main challenge was to create an autobiography about themselves, present the book and the Absolut Berri Acai cocktail in a satellite interview and on the main stage.
First of all, Jessica had frustrations in the photoshoot for the book cover. Jessica was unsure of how to pose for the cover, and she didn't know how to portray her essence from the photoshoot into the biography she wrote. The photographers said "She came in defeated. If you come in defeated, then you are defeated." Jessica was critiqued for having faulty timing in the interview, mentioning her book too late and raving a little too much about the Berry Acai cocktail. Absolut's Jeffery Moran said Jessica's interview was "a little sloppy." Also, Jessica's book cover, "Dreams of a Golden Child" was critiqued to have looked too childish. Santino said, "It looks like a cover that a 9-year-old girl would buy."
Jessica Wild's English barrier played a small factor in her status in the bottom two because she was made fun of for saying what appeared to be "Dreams of a Golden Shower" when it was stated as "Dreams of a Golden Child."
So, Jessica Wild fell into the bottom two alongside her good friend and fellow contestant, Tatianna. Jessica's dance style was too over the top for the song that was chosen, "He's The Greatest Dancer". So Tatianna got to stay another week, while Jessica sashayed away.
