Raina Hein is an American fashion model. She is best known as the runner-up of the fourteenth cycle of America's Next Top Model. Hein grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Hein was chosen as one of the 13 girls to compete in New York City on Americas Next Top Model. On the show she was known for her positive personality, and unique looks being told she looks like the new mix of Denise Richards and Brooke Shields. Although she did get criticized on her body type not being petite but not plus sized or big, she received one first call-out, two second call-outs, and three third call-outs. She was in the bottom two in the episode Hobbits vs. Models for not being able to handle edgy and out of her range photos. Hein made it to the final two girls with Krista White. Though the judges loved Hein's fresh face, great photos, and was said to be better in her Covergirl shoot than Krista White, at the end she was the runner up because they felt that Krista White would have a better chance at an international career. Raina Hein has modeled for Jenny Carle Summer Collection, Cliche Boutique, Twin Cities Statement Magazine, and has been featured in the May 2010 edition of Seventeen Magazine. She shot a cover and spread of Harper's Bazaar Arabia, was featured in a two page spread in Metro Magazine, and will be the face of Symphony Retailers in Dubai.
