America’s Next Top Model selected a winner on Wednesday’s finale episode, but there’s already controversy over who won. The problem? Her waist.
Chelsey Hersley and Ann Ward were the two remaining models, but it was Ann’s perfect perfect poses that earned her the “America’s Next Top Model” title.
Ann made a name for herself before the season even aired due to a promo clip released from the show. The 19-year-old, 6-foot, 2-inch model has a very tiny waist, ABC News reports. Judge Miss J. Alexander was seen in the trailer showing just how tiny her waist is by putting his hands all the way around her waist.
Tyra Banks later apologized for the clip airing in the trailer, but now that controversial skinny model is the winner!
As winner, Ann received a spread in Italian Vogue, a cover and feature in the magazine’s “Beauty in Vogue” and placement on vogue.it. She also won one a year of representation from IMG and a $100,000 Cover Girl Cosmetics contract.
What do you think of Ann winning America’s Next Top Model?
