Porschla Coleman winning the Model Final title meant that she not only took home $100,000, but she also won a high-status modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models.

In addition to her “Star Search” fame, her relationship with Jason Kidd earned her a guest appearance on the hit show, “Khloé & Lamar.” This series was a drama and romance reality show centered around basketball. It was aired between 2011 and 2012 and only had two seasons because it was not well received by the critics or the public.
