    I love Whitney, I think she's the most beautiful girl in that house and has every potential in the world to make it as a plus size model. Also, I fell it was about time to recognize that beauty does not have to walk hand in hand with bulimia...

    HOWEVER!!!!!! Is it really that surprising that this just happened to happen in the exact 10th season? God, TV can really piss me off sometimes...

    Anyway, congrats to Whitney! I hope this opens lots of doors to you and to all the others average sized girls who are beautoful as can be but made fun of!!!moreless

    The remaining three girls are put to the test when they have to shoot a commercial and have a photo shoot for CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara. It is revealed that the winner of the cycle will have her ad on a billboard in Times Square. During the commercial, all of the girls struggle with their lines, but still manage to look like real CoverGirls. During judging, the judges commented that Whitney's commercial was average but deemed her photo stellar, while they were not impressed by Fatima's robotic performance in her commercial. Anya's commercial is described as a "trainwreck", but that is overlooked by her personality on film and her stellar look in the commercial. However, her beauty shot is deemed "stupid" by Paulina. Anya is called first, leaving Fatima and Whitney in the bottom two, both for the fourth time. Tyra is still not clear who Whitney actually is and whether she is not as beautiful as she seems to be and act. They also criticize Fatima for not emulating her beauty into her pictures and modeling. So, the judges decide to send Fatima home. Nigel shoots the final two's Seventeen magazine cover for the July edition, where they both do a good job. Anya and Whitney compete against each other in Versace gowns, with their outfits handpicked by Donatella Versace. During the final deliberation, Whitney was told she did a very good job except that she forgot to pose at the end of the runway. Anya was told she didn't walk as strongly as she could have but she still looked stunning. The girls are called back in, and Whitney is declared the winner ¢¾moreless
  • Another winner, ANTM!

    Yeah, you go Whitney! You weren't my favorite but I'm so happy you won. To tell you the truth, this wasn't the best season of ATNM, there weren't clear favorites as in other seasons. But then I'm usually rooting for the girl who comes in at #2. This season, Fatima was the most "modelly" but she had such a superior attitude. Anya was a great person but was a little spacey (like Jael) to fit into the modeling world. Whitney might have been "posey" and a little artificial but she can get the job done without a lot of complaints, she works hard and she's gorgeous. ANTM got a lot of flak for the Saleisha win last fall and they will get it for picking a plus-size model. Bravo to them for ignoring the naysayers who call choosing a regular size model is "politically correct" (what garbage) and refuse to recognize that Whitney is a winner.moreless
  • Eventhough my expectations for this cycle's conclusion were high, it wasn't really satisfactory. Instead it was downright wrong but at the same time really predictable.

    America's Next Top Model surprised me this time around. Overall use of interesting challenges, diverse models with relateable (cultural) backgrounds, delectable photographers and a more professional approach (focusing less on interpersonal drama). I started losing my enthousiasm when Claire and Katrazyna got voted off. The fundaments of judging revolve to much around a model's personality. Claire, ''that punk chick'' and Kat were all genuine and real people, but still unique in their own right. Which made them appeal to me more. As a model they had that high fashion look, the akward but sofisticated features and intelligence. This show tries to hard to cross boundaries that recently already have been crossed. Full figured modeling has been around for almost a decade, it was not in need of beeing immortalized or revolutionalized by any such program what so ever. Don't get me wrong, I would gladly accept whitney's victory if it wasnt for the obvious superiority of several other models in this years competition. You could say it's mearly a matter of personal taste, but that same argument applies to the judges. But in fact they watch with a careful eye, they have experience in the field, ONE WOULD THINK!? I like this show, but i can not take it seriously. Anya is, in my inebt and pedestrian point of view, and always will be more then the rest of them. She has the ethereal provoking energy, the clear blue eyes, the beautiful bonestructure, the angles in her posing, eager to listen and learn, down to earth personality, easy to work with and a unique soft look. I'm just a bit dissapointed with the show, not because my prefered model didnt make it, but because ANTM is one of many poorly executed fast food reality shows with no realism at all. Yes the competetive nature of the show keeps me coming back for more, but WHITNEY!? come on..moreless

    GO Whitney GO Whitney GO Whitney GO Whitney GO Whitney.



    I think it's very shallow and easy to say that Whitney won only because Tyra wanted her to or because it was time for a plus size model to win no one ever said that Eva won because she is a black women or that CariDee won because she has blonde hair. It's very easy to assume that the only reason she won is her weight. Whitney is a stunning girl she delivered beautiful pictures she always had a smile on her face and I could only imagine how hard it was for her to stay positive thru the entire competition.

    I'm extremely happy for Whitney I wanted her to win from the start not because of how she looks but because of who she is. I was so proud she totally ROCKED the runway she was unbelievably beautiful in both dresses she was confident and her walk is great.

    My only hope that wining this competition will be enough coz the modeling world is cruel.moreless

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Miss Jay: You didn't bring it as strong as you could have, you didn't bring it as strong as you should have. You look like the Eveready Battery, the windup toy doll that just--moves.
      Paulina: But to be fair, the dress was very narrow at the bottom, prompting her to take very small steps.
      Miss Jay: Girl...don't let me get up here and start twisting my little black ass up and show you how you walk in a dress like that.

    • Whitney: My entire life I've grown up with a bunch of mean girls picking on me all the time. It's the backhanded compliments, it's the--you know, "Oh my gosh, you don't even look that fat!"

    • Sultan: (to Whitney) For what it's worth, you're like the first juicy booty to make it onto the runway.

    • (about Anya's Cover Girl picture)
      Paulina: On this shot, even though you're beautiful and I love the way you look and I've gotten to know you a little bit more as a person, too...here you look stupid.

    • (Talking about Whitney)
      Paulina: This should not be called plus-size or full-figured, this should just be called "beautiful".

    • Whitney: I'm here because I do feel good about myself, and I want other women in America to feel better about themselves.

    • Nigel (commenting on Fatima's poorly done CoverGirl ad): If that was a toothpaste ad, it would be fantastic.

    • Paulina (describing the difference between the two finalists): I think Whitney's the one that a man would want to have in his bedroom, but Anya is the one that you will buy the dress from.
