Her fans - those who appreciated the fact that she wasn't a typically super-skinny model, and wished that Tyra Banks would back up her talk of considering various body types - were disappointed.
Fortunately, though, viewers will get a chance to see more of Hartshorne in the near future.
She's joining The Boston Babydolls, a burlesque performing group based out of Boston, Ma. Her burlesque persona is named Vita Lightly, and on December 15, she'll be performing in "Brrrrlesque" with the group at The Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline.
The Boston Babydolls describe themselves as a troupe of performers devoted to burlesque both classic and modern and variety acts. Our members include fan dancers, sword swallowers, jugglers, tassle twirlers, and many more."
The America's Next Top Model star will be performing two solo spots in the show. It looks like she's taking seriously her final episode comments to heart:
"I want to make it clear that it is OK for someone my size to be dressed like that! I don't want girls to see that and say, 'Oh, gee, she's uncomfortable, so I should be uncomfortable,' too. I felt gorgeous! It was really fun and kind of a great role to get into, this dominatrix vampire."
