Lisa D'Amato grew up in Los Angeles and always knew she wanted to be a performer. She launched a successful modeling career at age 12 and modeled extensively throughout Europe. She eventually was cast on the fifth cycle of America's Next Top Model. D'Amato was considered a front-runner to win the competition, but her outrageous antics on the show led to her elimination in the seventh week, despite taking great photos. After her boot from ANTM, she made a music video for her song, "Ace of Spades," and put it on YouTube. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton saw it and promoted it, and the video eventually received over a million views. D'Amato raised her reality-show profile in 2010 by appearing on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew and released her debut CD La Puchinetta.
