America's Next Top Model Winner: Revealed!

by at . Comments

All eyes were on Angelea throughout the America's Next Top Model All-Stars Finale. Not because she performed particularly well, but because she was disqualified and sent home! 

In a series first, Tyra gave Angelea the book during panel for a yet-unknown reason. Sources say the contestant revealed a few spoilers since taping ended, with some actually claiming she won... only for the show to re-film a new ending with a new champion. Scandalous!

Lisa D'Amato in Action

The finale did a great job of wrapping up loose threads from the cycle.  “Pot Ledom,” the forgotten Michael Cinco dresses and the dreaded CoverGirl commercials all made an appearance in the action-packed episode.

Angelea, Allison and Lisa all flubbed the CoverGirl commercials in their own special way. Of course, the spots are infamous, but the girls so far have been rocking live shoots this season, so my expecations were higher.

Allison at first got a distinct advantage for the CoverGirl beauty shot with her stunning eyes, but struggled when they put her in the sun. Lisa’s shoot was actually sultry and stunning without being wild. Angelea struggled the most; her bone structure is unparalleled but her eyes weren’t showcasing the product.

It wouldn’t be Top Model without a dramatic surprise finale photoshoot, of course. Gorgeous Greek setting, sexy swimwear, and Vogue Italia? No pressure indeed. Allison looked the most editorial and graceful in her white bathing suit, far outshining Lisa, who came across rather trashy in her photooshoot.

In keeping with the water theme, the finale runway was chock full of crazy moments: 

  1. The models had to swim.
  2. They had to “rise” out of the water like Aphrodite to signify their “birth as models.”
  3. They wore wings and harnesses.
  4. Pot ledom... ledom... ledom...
  5. We finally saw the individualized Michael Cinco dresses.

Although everything else seemed a bit gimmicky, I really enjoyed finally seeing the dresses that the girls designed; they were so beautiful, individual and fitting for each of the models.

Meanwhile: Surprise! The judging was set in Los Angeles. Didn’t it seem as though the finale was all over the place? It was an unusually hectic ANTM episode, with more photoshoots and longer runway than usual.

After Angelea’s shocking elimination, which came as a surprise for Lisa and Allison as well, I was sure that Allison had even more of an advantage. I never thought Lisa would get as far as she already had. 

Unfortunately, Lisa was climbing up the scoreboard with her commercial, gorgeous CoverGirl shot and the runway. I knew Allison couldn’t win over the judges in the runway category but she was a much stronger swimmer and was quite bubbly during panel.

I think what may have sealed her fate was Lisa’s surprisingly classy, yet sultry, CoverGirl shoot. I’m really surprised and disappointed that Allison didn’t win All-Stars. I expected anyone as wonderful and quirky as Allison was a total shoo-in to be the champion! I can’t see Lisa as a proper ANTM ambassador either, but maybe I’m wrong.

SHOULD LISA HAVE WON?

Okay so I have been a fan if antm for the longest time watched ever season, but I can say that you have lost a viewer for sure now so disappointed on how the left everybody hanging I really think that it should have came down to Allison and angelea with the winner being angelea. Lisa really wtf was they thinking she really wants a record deal anyway. So not watching this show anymore tyra you suck ass.

I didn't think Lisa should win, points for wisdom and actually being ready for the prizes (cough crying Angelea cough), but remember her bombing the CSI episode complete with swearing and excuses, and her overpowering annoying and unprofessional Extra shoot with the girls, unlike Allison who won. I'm glad Angelea didn't win, she annoyed sooooo badly, so I guess that's a plus. But what did it for me is the replay of all of Lisa's photos.... lame lame lame, I'm not sure that's even model quality. Yeah she's an all star personality all right, but not an Top Model. FAIL.

Yeah, Camille must be around 40. Shannon's got to be pretty old by now, too. Remember, she was in Cycle 1, right? Clearly the contestants were chosen because they have a "fan" base; remember this is a TV show first, not really a model search. ANTM is a reality show -- they want controversy; they wanted contestants that people either really "love" or really "hate.". From looking at the comments, I'd say they succeeded! Unfortunately ANTM has become much more of a "soap" reality show than it started out as. Now there's so much more blah blah, back-biting and bitchiness between the contestants than there was in the beginning. remember how they used to show us the girls being instructed in things like runway walking and posing? Now they just show us these set-aside clips of the girls talking trash about each other. They don't show us anything anymore about how they learn to become models. That's what I liked about the show. Now, since I tape the episodes, I just fast forward thru all the trash talk. This "All Star" format was designed to be even more of a "soap" -- the contestants weren't supposed to be the best of the bunch, they were chosen because they were controversial and likely to do odd or weird things that would entice more TV viewers. I'm afraid this will set the stage for the direction the show has decided to go in -- it really isn't about finding a model -- it's becoming just another "Jersey Shore" TV show. Makes me sad and I doubt that I will continue watching if it continues in this direction. There will probably be 10 more new viewers for each one of us that stops watching, though

First of all, I'm sorry Allison didn't win, Lisa just looks old and used up & her crazy antics were amusing for about 5 seconds on the first cycle she was on. I saw her on some reality show (can't remember which) where she was some guy on a reality shows girlfriend. She acted like a pig then and I still think she acted like one. Second, that dumb shoot they made them do with the long yellow dresses and the masks and stuff was dumb dumb dumb. Please Tyra, you are so talented in many other things, stop with your "editoral videos" The one on the cycle where Ann won was bad enough, but this last one was undeniably stupid. And stop inventing words. "Smizing" was bad enough, but "pot ledom"? C'mon Tyra, you're a smart woman. That's the reason there has been so many seasons of Top Model, leave it at that, and leave the editorial stuff to someone else. P.S. Attention all modeling agencies...Sign Allison immediately... A Fan

Cover Girl must be thrilled that their new "ingenue" She's 32!!! looks 45, acts 12 and dresses like a clown. She peed in an adult diaper to impress the guys from Jackass, for God's sake. Even they were grossed out. Look at the final two for Lisa's season a there's a reason she came in fifth. Nicole and Nik are young, beautiful and great models. They really scraped the bottom of the barrel for All Stars. Alison, Shannon and Laura were the only runner ups selected for the show. Isis came in 10th! Hardly an All-Star - more of a tranny. And Camille must be 40 by now. This show is more about brawling white trash and ghetto bitches pushing 30 than modeling. A real model search show would kick its ass.

I feel that the loyal fans deserve an explanation.

ALL I CAN SAY IS I HAVE WATCHED THE SHOW FROM THE BEGINNING AND AFTER WHAT I SAW LAST NIGHT I WILL NEVER WATCH THE SHOW AGAIN!!!! LISA DID NOT DESERVE TO WIN!!! SHE LOOKS OLD AND HAS A PAST THAT IS NOT COVERGIRL. SHE WILL NEVER BE A ROLE MODEL!!!! ALLISON SHOULD HAVE DEFINATELY WON OVER LISA!!! ANGELEA WILL ALWAYS BE A WINNER IN MY EYES. SORRY TYRA......LOST ALOT OF RESPECT FOR YOU AND YOUR SHOW!!!!

I was rooting for Angelea but I am glad Lisa won!
she has come a long way and has learned from all the critics.
she seemed a lot more demure than her first appearance and she was the most professional this time round!
she can follow direction and not think too much of herself like Bianca and Bre.
She will always have work because she is fun to be around and will try anything!
Plus she has a calm partner to keep her grounded! Congratulations Lisa!!

I am very disappointed with the ending results. I loved Allison. Lisa is nothing special and never stood out to me. At the end Tyra wanted the winner to be someone to "look up to" and a "role model" -- which from what i've seen about lisa she is the opposite of that
http://antm411.wordpress.com/l...
even if what they say about her isn't true, the pictures speak for themselves. Modeling with X's over your nipples and a cigarette in your mouth isn't very intriguing. And if her quotes on the web page are true about how she feels she would have been better off with out being on the show then WHY would you not only invite her to the All Stars series but esp choose her to WIN. What a mistake.
