America's Next Top Model Cycle 17 ALL STAR CAST THOUGHTS

For a few weeks now we have known that America’s next top model cycle 17 will be doing an all stars cycle, but only today was the cast list released. Here are the 14 girls competing again for a modeling contract, the cycle they first entered and the position they left at:
  • Shannon Stewart, C1 (Finalist)
  • Camille McDonald, C2 (5th)
  • Britanny Brower, C4 (4th)
  • Lisa D'Amato, C5 (6th)
  • Bre Scullark, C5 (3rd)
  • Bianca Golden, C9 (4th)
  • Dominique Reighard, C10 (9th)
  • Isis King, C11 (10th)
  • Sheena Sakai, C11 (6th)
  • Allison Harvard, C12 (Finalist)
  • Laura Kirkpatrick, C13 (Finalist)
  • Angelea Preston , C14 (4th)
  • Kayla Ferrell, C15 (4th)
  • Alexandria Everrett, C16 (4th)
Many of the girls here I can see recruited to stir up drama with only several having true potential. Bre has been doing well outside ANTM so why she wants to return is beyond me. I feel like they just shoved a load of divas into the mix (Camille, Bre, Bianca, Dominique, Angelea, Alexandria) to see how they’d react to each other, like some sort of gladiator fight. Get ready for America’s Next Top Bitch! I would happily trade these divas for someone with REAL potential such as Lauren Brie, Pendulum Alexandra, Heather Kuzmich, Marjorie and Jaclyn.

Three of the girls were finalists in their cycle, six came 3rd of 4th and the remaining five 5th or below. Not that their original ranking should have anything to do with how well they compete this time around, but I can see those being a very rough estimate of their progression.

Out of all these, there are some very obvious contenders, such as Camille and Bre (great walkers), Allison (stunning pictures) and all-rounders such as Alexandria, Laura and Shannon.

Just from this list, I am going to be rooting for Allison, given she is the only one who is on my ‘Favourite ANTM contestants of all time’ list. I am surprised they didn’t bring Heather Kuzmich back, given she has a great story and takes great pictures. I also like Laura as she is really sweet, would’ve been my favourite but Nicole was just better in every way when they were competing in the same cycle and also Bre who is an amazing walker and I remember liking her towards the end of cycle 5.

I definitely can’t wait for this cycle to begin which airs in September. Cycle 16 isn’t even over yet, but since the elimination of Hannah (my last remaining true favourite), I really don’t care whether Molly or Brittani wins.

Favourite Three for Cycle 17:
1. Allison
2. Laura
3. Bre

Now we know the cast, I wonder what the prizes will be! Allison is possibly the only Vogue Italia worthy girl, so I doubt Franca Sozzani would let her magazine down the drain by associating with this cycle in ANY WAY.

UPDATE: The winner of Cycle 17 of America's Next Top Model will get a spread in Vogue Italia and a $100,00 contract with CoverGirl cosmetics. In addition, the winner will also get a fashion campaign with Express and a guest correspondent role on the entertainment show Extra.

UPDATE: Here are some previews you can watch before next week's premiere!

  1. Allison is my fave, too! Her eyes make her look so innocent. I like her "Bird's Nest"-themed photo the best. I'm pretty sure you liked that one too! I'm sure there are women who want her to win now. Oh, I just hope she does. =)
