Detailed Larissa Meek Biography?

Meek has studied at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and St. Louis Community College. This was for her interest in the artistic ventures she is involved in. Meek’s interest in 3-D animation was inspired by her love for watching cartoons in the 1980s when she was a child. Animation then carried her over to painting.

As an actress, Meek has appeared in such shows as Model Citizens (2004), Ellen: The Ellen DeGeneres Show (2003), and Off Centre (2001). Since 2002, Meek has been residing in Los Angeles and has ventured in artistic pursuits like web design, painting and 3-D animation alongside her career in television shows.

She has her own website that features her pieces of art which have also been seen in private collections, in galleries, and in her luxurious home. She got into beauty pageants in her teenage years mainly as a platform to enable her to strengthen her communication skills and to earn scholarship money for art school, having been confident in her artistic prowess.

Larissa took part in the Miss Missouri Teen USA beauty pageant in 1996. Her mother supported her and even helped to make her first pageant gown. She won the 1997 title as well as came in first place in the evening gown competition. She then proceeded to take part in the Miss Teen USA 1997 pageant competition. It was held at South Padre Island, Texas. She did not place but did earn an Honorable Mention (for placing between 11th and 15th place).

Meek also took part in the Miss Missouri USA pageant in 2000 for the first time. She became the titleholder and in March 2001, she competed for the Miss USA 2001 title, representing Missouri, in a pageant telecast live from Gary, Indiana. She made it to the semifinals and won both the swimsuit and evening gown competitions with scores of 9.45 and 9.39 respectively. Her performances advanced her to the top five but failed to make the top three after finishing last in the interview competition. She placed fourth runner-up to Kandace Krueger from Texas.

Meek’s experiences with beauty pageants led her to pursue modeling and join acting. She moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams.

Reality TV Personality Larissa Meek

Meek began her reality television career in 2003 when she began starring on the show Average Joe: Hawaii. For her role in the show, she was succeeding fellow Miss Missouri Teen USA and Miss Missouri USA titleholder Melana Scantlin. She went on a couple of dates with “average Joes” when the show began but during the show, a bunch of “hunks” were brought in to compete against the Joes.
