I have always been a huge fan of the renowned reality television show, America's Next Top Model for seven years now and I try to make it a point not to miss every cycle's episodes. There was a cycle though that I intentionally skipped watching because all my favorite girls got eliminated and I just lost interest. Anyhow, I just wanted to share some of my preferred charmers that turned out to be the bunch's awkward beauties. It upsets me though they never get to attain first place (except Nicole Fox of cycle 13) and the judges always convince they 'lack personality'. The hell with lacking personality, their photos are screaming attitude and fierceness!!!
Cycle 2: Shandi Sullivan
was born on April 2, 1982 in Kansas City, Missouri. She used to be a Walgreens Pharmacy clerk, but left the job in order to pursue a modeling career in New York City. Her luck in the Big Apple was quite good, as she was able to balance working as a DJ and taking on small modeling jobs. Although she had a tough time growing up, having gotten involved with drugs and burglary, Shandi never gave up on her dreams and in 2003, she auditioned for America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 2.
Cycle 9: Heather Kuzmich
is an art student and American fashion model. She currently lives in Chicago, Illinois where she is studying video game design. She is best known for being a contestant of America's Next Top Model, Cycle 9, where she was the fourth runner-up of the show. During the show, it was revealed that Kuzmich has Asperger syndrome and ADHD
Cycle 10: Anya Kop/ Rezova
is a fashion model. Born in Russia, Rozova is a naturalized U.S. citizen who was raised in Hawai'i by adoptive parents. Under the name Anya Kop, Rozova was the runner-up of the tenth cycle of America's Next Top Model.
Cycle 12: Allison Harvard
Allison has signed with Nous Models Management in Los Angeles. Since America's Next Top Model, Harvard has modeled for karmaloop.com. She has made an internet videos with fourfour entitled "Fake Blood" and an "interview" with cat Winston. Her connection with 4chan and America's Next Top Model also made her the subject her own Know Your Memeepisode.
Cycle 13: Nicole Fox (my favorite!!! yey!)
As the winner of America's Next Top Model, Fox received a six page spread in Seventeen Magazine, and an ad for Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara. Fox has also modeled for Illiterate Magazine, in which she had a spread, and been featured on AOL.com, More magazine and in OK! Magazine. Fox was featured in Wild Fox Couture's 2010 fall collection lookbook along with models Rachel Ballinger and Daria Plyushko, as well as in on-line ads for Spirit Hoods and in a campaign for Heritage 1981's Spring 2010 collection—which is a sister brand ofForever 21, and ads for Steve Madden Spring Collection. She will be in the campaign for Nicole Richie's "House of Harlow 1960 Spring 2011" fashion line. In January 2010, a news story circulated reporting that Fox would be the face of Alexander McQueen's new spring/summer collection, but this rumor was revealed to be false and has been debunked by both McQueen and Fox.
Cycle 15: Ann Ward
19 year old, towering 6'2" in height landed in final two along with Chelsey in cycle 15 America's Next Top Model. She's my bet since episode one and I hope she'll nail it. It would be really awesome if she'll grace the cover of Vogue Italia next season!!!
Wanna be on Top?
Can't wait for the last episode of Cycle 15! ;)
