On Top Model, Bickerstaff adopted the stage name "Melrose," saying she removed the "issa" from her first name because she "didn't need it." She got as far as the "final two" on the series, despite being depicted as not well-liked by the other contestants. Later reporting by E! attributed this depiction to selective editing. Her walk was judged better than that of competitor CariDee English, but English won the overall competition.

After "Top Model"

At the end of Bickerstaff's Top Model run, she announced that she would help design clothes for former Lost cast member Michelle Rodriguez's fledgling clothing line, Ishkidada. The next month, E! Online and reported that Bickerstaff and actor Jeremy Piven had started a romance, but TMZ later retracted its report.
