The 24-year-old at the time was from New York, but is of Czech and Pakistani decent.

Nargis's dream was short-lived when she was eliminated during the first episode following this bikini shoot.

But she didn't let that stop her from becoming successful. In 2011 she landed a lead movie role in Bollywood's Rockstar.

In 2013 she landed another lead role in Bollywood's Madras Cafe.

She's blown up in Bollywood now. Nargis acts, models, and now looks like this!

She's landed a cover of Vogue India.
