Bridgeport native Keith Carlos appearing on this season's 'America's Next Top Model'

A Bridgeport native is one of the contestants on this season's "America's Next Top Model."



Keith Carlos, who now lives in Atlanta, went to Central High School in Bridgeport, where he played football. Carlos says he got into modeling when he had to give up football after injuring his leg.



Carlos says getting onto the show was tough. After he made the cut, he spent more than two months filming in California and Seoul, South Korea.



Carlos' family and friends gathered in Shelton to watch the show's premiere and he says he is very grateful to have them all supporting him.
