It has just been announced that for Cycle 17 of America's Next Top Model, Tyra will be inviting back memorable girls from past cycles to compete. As someone who has loved every cycle but sometimes questioned the winners, I CANNOT WAIT! This announcement got me thinking...if I were to create an all star cast, who would be included? As much as I'd want to pick my favorites from every cycle, there would need to be some drama, too. It was really hard narrowing it down to 14...but here's who I would choose:
Mercedes - A lot of people thought she was robbed when Yoanna won (I was a Yoanna fan), and no one was angrier than Janice Dickinson about it, so I think she should have another go.
Kahlen - She definitely gave Naima a run for her money. Their final runway show was one of the fiercest.
Melrose - Yes, she had an older look, but she knew what she was doing. Now she's probably like 30, though, eh?
Brittany - This girl was a total brat, but I loved her look. From her bad weave to her hissy fit after go-sees, Brittany was always whining about something.
Jenah - I don't know if she'd do it, but she was my favorite from Cycle 9. Oh no, I just realized that Tyra will not be able to resist bringing Heather back. Dangit.
Anya - This girl with her crazy accent and European-type beauty is the definition of high fashion. Anya or Katarzyna should've won Cycle 10. Sorry, Whitney!
Katarzyna - One of the many girls Tyra didn't think had enough personality. Still, Anya or Katarzyna should've won Cycle 10. Sorry, Whitney!
Analeigh - !!!!!!!!!!! Nuff said.
Sheena - We need an Asian winner one of these years, and I think either Sheena or Jennifer (below) could do it.
Jennifer - Although she was in the shorty cycle, she was very talented and had potential.
Angelea - She was hilarious and surprisingly good.
Alexandra - A plus size girl who took really good pictures.
Jane - !! Love her.
Ondrei - Sabreen reminded me of this one. She went home early this cycle due to a family tragedy, so she deserves another shot. She's beautiful and showed a lot of potential.
Those are the girls I would like to see. My predictions of who Tyra will really bring back are Toccara (which I would be fine with), Jade (for the drama), Heather (overrated in my opinion), Naduah (Tyra has said she went home too early), Tahlia (has a good story but wasn't a great model, I don't think), and maybe Isis (transgender model).
