America’s Next Top Model: Cycle 17, Episode 13 :: All-Star Finale
America's Next Top Model Cycle 17 wraps up this week with a surprise twist! Episode 13, "All-Star Finale", aired on December 7, 2011.
Working With Clients
The top three girls - Lisa, Angelea and Allison - had a busy week as ANTM completed their 17th cycle. They worked with a real Cover Girl client to shoot their beauty shots and commercials for a Cover Girl eye shadow. Later, they did a photo shoot with their other clients, Vogue Italia.
A Runway Built for Three
For the first time in the history of Top Model, the top three girls all walked in the final runway show, along with eliminated contestants Laura, Dominique and Shannon. It was an unusual runway show in that it began with the girls swimming under water and “transforming” into goddesses. The trick however, was that they snuck out the back of their quick-change tent while another model replaced them.
A Goddess on the Runway
When it was the girls' turn to play the role of goddess, they each strutted the runway to their previously recorded songs while wearing the dress that was designed for them when they first arrived in Crete. Allison struggled with her runway walk and the movement of her dress in the wind, while Angelea struggled to keep her emotions in check.
A Shocking Twist
In a surprising twist that left fans wondering, the judges announced during the finale elimination that they learned information about Angelea that disqualified her from the competition. They didn’t say what, but many rumors have surfaced on the web. Most people are saying that she actually won the competition in Greece, however she leaked information about either the top three or the finale episode on her Facebook before the show aired. So the judges refilmed the finale in the US and awarded Lisa the prize instead. We don’t know for sure if the rumors are true, but if they are, it’s very unfortunate.
