Tyra’s brilliantly crazy mind has come up with another dangerously addictive concept for her popular reality show, America’s Next Top Model (ANTM). There has already been sixteen successful cycles of excitement, pain, passion, desperation, art, but cycle 17 will be the cycle to end all cycles. Wicked Tyra is bringing back some of the most popular and most destructive members from past seasons. And while the blood-thirsty contestants claw their way to number one…again, us fans will be loving every second of it. So let’s travel back into ANTM history and re-introduce the All-Star Cast, one by one.
1. Shannon Stewart, Cycle 1
Shannon is a small-town girl who chose to live a biblical life by pursuing a career in modeling. She is definitely one of the highlights in cycle 1 since her photos are the most memorable out of the pack, but that is not saying much. Honestly, I think Shannon will be eaten alive by her competition since she may not have anyone to cling on to. We will pray for you, Shannon.
2. Camille McDonald, Cycle 2
“Camilla Deville” is returning with her rock-solid confidence and signature walk. Camille is definitely going to bring the heat this season. Camille is a crazy genius who delivers lines so memorable, they will make you question your own sanity. She is known to stomp on other girl’s insecurities and thrive in the spotlight as a lone wolf. Despite what you think, Camille is a strong beauty who will definitely be one of the stars.
3. Britanny Brower, Cycle 4
Britanny is a gorgeous creature from another planet, as her vivacious personality is not of this world. She is able to turn any situation into a party, even when she is placed in danger like being stalked by lions (seriously). Fear is not in this woman’s vocabulary, and it shows in her natural modeling abilities. Britanny, thank goodness you are here.
4. Lisa D’Amato, Cycle 5
Forget about being from another planet, Lisa is from a galaxy far, far away. Of course, her inhuman behavior is welcomed in this vicious cycle. Lisa is so unconventional and wonderfully strange, that it is impossible to fully describe her with words. I wonder if Britanny speaks her language.
5. Bre Scullark, Cycle 5
Bre is blessed with goddess-like features and an interesting set of raspy vocals. Unfortunately like Shannon, she is a little lukewarm in the character department. But unlike Shannon, she has a strong presence. I have a feeling that Bre is going to be a quiet storm during this cycle.
6. Bianca Golden, Cycle 9
No! No! NO!
I will admit, Bianca is the most strikingly beautiful girl I have ever seen, but that disgusting persona of hers leaves her face in molding scraps. Bianca is painfully insecure, and instead of finding solutions to empower herself, she strategically decides to tear down the stronger girls instead. She did this with Lisa from cycle 9, She did this with Heather, and she tried to do this with Saleisha. Luckily, this new group of girls will NOT stand for her devious tactics. Hmmm then again, she might make Shannon her flunky.
7. Dominique Reighard, Cycle 10
Dominique’s looks are harsh, but she is still fascinating. And yes, she was the “bitch” of cycle 10, but I have a strong feeling that this will not be the case in cycle 17. Like Bre, I predict that Dominique is going to take the back seat and watch all the other girls kill each other so she ends up on top.
8. Isis King, Cycle 11
Isis has peacock like features, and luckily, it is paired up with a humble demeanor. Isis is the most focused model out of the flock. Her drive, her passion, and her mind will make her immune to the dirty gossip that is attached to the ANTM experiment. Isis is definitely the most dignified model this season, and her professional determination will get her far in the competition.
9. Sheena Sakai, Cycle 11
Yes! Yes! YES!
Sheena is a spicy mix of East meets West. She holds the presence of a strong warrior, yet she has an angelic aura that is captured in her photos. All I have left to say is thank you, Sheena! Thank for delivering your many blunt opinions for our viewing pleasure.
10. Allison Harvard, Cycle 12
Once upon a time in the depths of our darkest imaginations, there appeared a girl named Allison who looked frighteningly stunning. Her eyes hypnotized our soul, and her artistic persona was brunt into our memories. There is a reason why Allison is so popular. She is a walking Mona Lisa, and I love her. I love her so much, it’s scary.
11. Laura Kirkpatrick, Cycle 13
Laura truly is a slice of apple pie. Every time the camera is on her, she is a face full of genuine smiles. Laura is also a small-town girl, but her light spirits repels all the negativity. She is in a league on her own, but don’t be fooled. Laura will destroy you with her photos.
12. Angelea Preston , Cycle 14
Love her or hate her, Angelea is an unusual beauty. She truly looks like a model. However while observing her on the show and even some of her most recent pictures, there is a certain desperation about her that chips away at her beauty. Regardless, she is another ANTM genius. She delivers some of the most hilariously brilliant quotes…ever.
13. Kayla Ferrell, Cycle 15
Kyla possesses an interesting mix of awkwardness and sexiness. She is another girl who is very passionate about her pursuits yet is one of the background candidates. She takes fierce photos, but I’m not sure if she will last long considering her competition.
14. Alexandria Everrett, Cycle 16
Here we go again!
Alexandria understands the mechanics of modeling 101, but her constant need for control will be the death of her in this competition. She is capable of being spontaneous when she expected to be spontaneous, but she is incapable of living the art of spontaneity since she doesn’t “go-with-the-flow.” Relax Alexandria. Though, I’m sure you will become great friends with Bianca.
There you have it! The 14 beastly beauties are ready to fight for the last prize. If you notice though, there are no constants from cycle 3 or cycle 6. But I’m sure those girls are too sane to volunteer themselves back into this social nightmare. The 14 above are just crazy enough for another wildly, fun ride.
Let the games begin!
