As America waits for its new American Idol, America’s Next Top Model revealed their new winner for their 14th cycle. The latest cycle’s winner is Krista White, a 25-year old contestant from Arkansas.
White has been a fan of the show and had tried out after the first cycle of America’s Next Top Model, which was launched in 2003 and finally landing a spot on the final 13 this cycle. After several weeks of runway training, photoshoots, and challenges, the show announced White and Raina Hein as this cycle’s final two. They did their final test on the runway as what they usually do in the show.
The final two walked for Anna Sui’s fashion show with an overall rock and roll circus theme. The show was opened by Nicole Fox who was the first petite top model winner of cycle 13, the cycle opened only for aspiring models who are 5’7 in height and under. Aside from the top two, four other eliminated top model contestants also joined the runway.
After deliberating about their walks, portfolio, and overall model potential, the judges finally named White as the top model because of her more edgy and sophisticated looks. She was the second top model winner from Arkansas after Dani Evans of cycle 6.
The prizes given to her as a top model winner are representation with Wilhelmina Models, Covergirl contract costing up to $100,000, and be on the Seventeen Magazine’s cover.
