Antonella Barba Undressed
Antonella Barba (2123), age 20, auditioned with her best friend Amanda Coluccio and made it to Hollywood. An undergraduate at The Catholic University of America, she is originally from Point Pleasant, New Jersey. She made it to Round 3 with Coluccio and both passed the group round (although their third member, Baylie Brown, did not). Coluccio was eliminated in the cut for the top 40. Recently, there has been emergence of racy photographs which include Barba topless along with other women on a beach. These pictures have received mainstream attention including a February 27, 2007 featured article in USA Today, a full segment concerning the controversy on the February 26, 2007 edition of FOX News' The O'Reilly Factor and also on multiple episodes of MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann (as recent as March 2007), both of which showed images of the Vote for the Worst pages featuring these images. Photos of Barba posing in a wet t-shirt in the fountain of the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. have also surfaced; however, Barba's friend Coluccio stated that the sexually explicit photos were fake.
