Tonight’s “America’s Next Top Model” All-Stars Cycle 17 (9/8c) isn’t just about a second chance at “smizing”—it’s about unleashing the inner Be-Beyoncé within!
Tyra Banks’ unnerving theatrics aside, the show brings back 14 of your favorite models from seasons past for a chance to prove they’ve not only refined their modeling chops but also have that “IT factor” that’ll make them a household name.
Here’s a sample of Tyra’s thesbianic aspirations on “ANTM”:
The all-star cast comprises of: Shannon Stewart (Cycle 1), Camille McDonald (Cycle 2), bubbly Brittany Brower (Cycle 4), cray-cray Lisa D’Amato (Cycle 5), Bre Scullark (Cycle 5), Bianca Golden (Cycle 9), Dominique Reighard (Cycle 10), transgender Isis King (Cycle 11), ghetto-fab Sheena Sakai (Cycle 11), ginormous-eyed Allison Harvard (Cycle 12), Laura Kirkpatrick (Cycle 13), Angelea Preston (Cycle 14), out-of-the-closet Kayla Ferrel (Cycle 15), and alpha feline Alexandria Everett (Cycle 16).
But we know you’re not gonna be watching this show just to see who’s the best of the best. Considering many of these skinny ladies having an obese amount of diva in them, the hair-raising catfights are going to be part of the whole package this season!
Here are the top three gals we think are going to clash catastrophically in Tyra’s Elite Modelina Land:
- Lisa D’Amato: She was known for her seemingly drugged-out, off-kilter antics in her cycle, which was not only considered really annoying but for some, plain scary. That whole lazy eye thing never helped, either.
- Angelea Preston: Unless you’re in a coma, Angelea will find something she finds offensive about you and will outright tell it to your face. She’s the hardcore jealous type, so don’t try to friend her friends, or you’ll feel her wrath…and you might not have any ear plugs handy.
- Alexandria Everett: She’s all alpha in the house and sleazily disingenuous with the judges.
She knows best, and if you let her, she’ll walk right on you and won’t look back. But her bark isn’t the worst of her vices—it’s her ability to manipulate!
For the lucky top model who makes it out alive, here’s what’s up for grabs: a contract with Express fashion, a chance to appear on “Extra” as a guess correspondent, a spread in Vogue Italia, and a $100K contract with CoverGirl.
Expect to see a wide range of celebrity guest judges including Kathy Griffin, Ashlee Simpson, Nicki Minaj, Kristin Cavallari, and LaToya Miss-Jackson-If-You’re-Nasty.
Along with Miss Tyra, your tried-and-true panel will be back to judge the ladies to their hearts’ content: fashion editor André Leon Talley, photographer Nigel Barker, and the Two Jays—creative director Jay Manuel and runway sashayer-extraordinaire Miss J. Alexander.
The season premiere of “ANTM” All-Stars Cycle 17 airs tonight on the CW at 9/8c.
