Some models will go to great lengths to achieve that perfect photo, but America's Next Top Model hopeful Don is not one of them.
Attempting to overcome a fear of the ocean, made significantly worse by a PTSD attack, the green-eyed model tries, and ultimately fails, to participate in an underwater shoot.
"I want to do this, and I want to get underwater, but in my head I know my fear and I know what I deal with on a daily basis," said Don of the anxiety attack stemming from a brutal beating in 2009. "Whenever I'm not in control of a situation, my mind snaps back to that and I start feeling really panicked."
