America’s Next Top Model has been around for 12 cycles and now it has the 12th winner, Teyona. In the season finale we watched the final three girls Teyona, Allison, and Aminat do a cover girl commercial. Allison messed up at first, but got it. Teyona did not do very well at all. Aminat said the words flawlessly, but the performance lacked personality. Mr. Jay encouraged her to talk like she normally does. She usually talks to Jay as if she is talking to one of her home boys, or relatives. She did and had a wonderful commercial. Unfortunately, her commercial was not good enough for the judges as she was sent home in the first half of the hour long finale.
The two final contestants, Allison and Teyona went to take their seventeen Magazine photo. Seventeen Magazine is a big part of America’s Next Top Model. Each cycle the two finalist take a photo that will be used as the cover shot for the girl who wins America’s Next Top Model.
Allison and Teyona then battled it out on the runway. The judges all agreed that Allison did better than what they expected. Also, that Teyona did as they expected. Both girls stomped it to the death. J. Alexander also known as Ms. J was on the runway dancing. Allison danced and played with J. Teyona, however, walked right past him. She made up for it in the final walk. The final walk was more like the final crawl. The models became animals of sorts getting down on the floor and dancing. Both Allison and Teyona did this very well. Teyona, however, won the competition when her weave fell out. Often times, people just throw their weave when it comes out. Teyona had a better idea. She just started swinging, waving and playing with the weave as if she was in a rodeo. The camera then showed Tyra and the other judges. We all knew Teyona had one by the look on Tyra’s face. Backstage, Tyra came to congratulate Teyona and Allison for their runway performances. She also made sure to compliment Teyona on the use of the falling weave.
After the runway show, came the judging. Teyona’s weave was fixed and on her head. The judging was just like the past cycles. They went through both Allison and Teyona’s photos taking throughout the show. They judged their runway walk as well. The judges all seemed to agree that Teyona deserved to be America’s Next Top Model. They called the girls back in and Tyra quickly said, “America’s Next Top Model is…Teyona!” Tyra then hugged both Teyona and Allison. Next Teyona and Tyra went off with Nigel Barker to do a photo shoot.
