Whitney Thompson-Cycle 10 Winner

Whitney Thompson, born in 1987 and hailing from Atlantic Beach, California won Cycle 10 of the popular US modeling reality show “America’s Next Top Model”. She was the first “Plus Size Model” to win the show which was a great achievement considering the fashion industry’s morbid fascination with the “Size Zero” look. At the beginning of the competition she was critizised by some of the judging panel as being ‘too pageant’ and ‘fake’ and landed in the bottom two a total of four times. However she managed to turn things around and narrowly beat Hawaiian beauty Anya Kop.
