10 Popular America’s Next Top Model Winners: Where Are They Now?
America’s Next Top Model took reality TV and the modeling world by storm thanks to the mind of supermodel Tyra Banks. ANTM ran for an incredible 12 years and 22 seasons, and pulled fans in again and again with increasingly difficult challenges and surprises each and every season. Every episode, Tyra tells the contestants what is at stake, including a modeling contract, a spread in a magazine and sometimes a deal with a makeup or fragrance company. Despite this kickstart to a career, the winners are rarely heard from anymore, making us wonder what ever happened to them! Check out where 10 of America’s Next Top Model‘s most popular winners are now:
10. Laura James – Cycle 19
Laura James made waves right from the beginning of ANTM thanks to the fame of her father, Dynasty actor John James and former pageant Queen mother Denise Coward. Immediately after winning cycle 19 of America’s Next Top Model, Laura James did a campaign with Nine West and Smashbox Cosmectics, and became the face of the ANTM perfume “Dream Come True.” In 2013 she did a campaign with Guess and appeared in the June issues of Vogue Italia. Most recently she started her own jewellery line called Dreamtime by Laura James and has made an appearance on the show Grandfathered.
9. Lisa D’Amato – Cycle 17
America’s Next Top Model fans were first introduced to Lisa D’Amato when she competed on cycle five, and quickly became one of the show’s most notorious “villains.” She ended up being eliminated seventh, but that didn’t stop her from returning and winning in cycle 17 for the All-Star season. After the win, D’Amato appeared in many magazines and had several runway shows, and then she made the transition into a singer. She has released two albums and had a stint on the third season of Celebrity Rehab. In 2012 D’Amato married Adam Friedman and in 2013 they welcomed their first child, a boy, named Dax. The pair appeared on Marriage Bootcamp and are currently expecting their second child.
