America's Next Top ModelEdit
Reighard was the last girl selected to be part of America's Next Top Model, Cycle 10, on her fifth try when Tyra Banks deciding to open an extra slot for her. Reighard was an underdog during the competition and even had a botched makeover that had to be redone. Reighard landed in the bottom two on the second week. The judges noted that she was good at softening her looks on pictures. She won one team challenge, and tied with Claire Unabia as the best posers. Reighard was eliminated in the final 4 when judge Nigel Barker noted that her face "couldn't take make-up". She finished fourth overall.
Only two months after giving birth to her second child, Reighard was selected as a finalist for the first All-Star edition of America's Next Top Model along with returning models. This time Reighard return as a fan favorite, front runner, and refine. Tyra noted, "Dominique, I seriously think that you're a professional." Reighard placed 5th overall in the competition.
Like all the other contestants on Cycle 17, Reighard was given a branding word: "survivor". During her time on the show she developed her own perfume called "Survivor" and performed in a music video for her song "Tooch Ya Booty."
Modelville and Carol's DaughterEdit
Dominique was then cast in Modelville. She has said she took part in the competition because she wanted to explore opportunities in New York City and move there to pursue modeling if she won. Even though she didn't win any of the challenges, her researching work, commercial, presence, and her personality allowed her to win over Renee Alway. She won a $50,000 contract and became the newest face of Carol's Daughter, being featured on their website and in ads.
