Nicole Linkletter-Cycle 5 Winner

Nicole Linkletter was born in 1985 and hails from Grand Forks, North Dakota. Nicole became the youngest winner of the show at the age of 19 years and 9 months when she pipped Nik Pace to take the coveted crown. Throughout the show she excelled in photo shoots and had a very strong walk.

Tyra said of Linkletter, “…she has the model ‘thing’ more than any of our other winners – the body type, the face type and the attitude,…… She reminds me of the girls I modeled with when I was in Europe when I was 17 years old.”

I was always the girl who, like, never really got that much attention. And now here I am — I’m a CoverGirl and I’m a Ford model… my life is beginning right now — Nicole’s life as a CoverGirl”


Nicole has gained great success following her ANTM win. She has appeared in numerous fashion magazines including Elle and Elle Girl. She has graced the catwalks for many talented designers such as Gharani Strok and Rozae Nichols. In her time after the show she has also made a number of television appearances. She hosted a series of segments for VH1 where she reported on Fashion Week and also starred in a commercial for Playstation Portable.
