Top Models Talk Top Moments
After 11 seasons, America's Next Top Model has seen hundreds of wannabe cover girls, dozens of over-the-top photo shoots and more than its share of drama. And according to the show's creator and host, Tyra Banks, the world is a better place because of the show's existence. "It has really educated everyone on what takes a good picture, and people understand there's talent involved," Banks said at Oxygen's launch party for the network's weekly Top Model marathon. America's Next Top Model Obsessed airs Sundays, all day, starting at 11 am/ET.
TVGuide.com caught up with some of your favorite winners, judges and fan favorites from the reality competition to find out what their most memorable moments are from Top Model history.
Whitney (Cycle 10, Winner)
"My most memorable moment was when the girls were being suspended in the air and this little blonde girl was crying her eyes out. Every time one of the girls freak out is a great moment."
Bianca (Cycle 9)
"I remember being 16 years old and watching Tyra yell at Tiffany (Cycle 4) — it was so scary! I thought she was so sweet and innocent, and for her to get that loud, it was like a mom yelling at her kid — and I know how that feels!"
Bre (Cycle 5)
"I won't forget the granola bar fight. I've had bouquets of granola bars sent to my house after the show! It doesn't go away."
Heather (Cycle 9)
"I think it was in the beginning of my cycle, when we were all able to play in the sand where we could kick back and make sand castles and look for seashells. It was really a lot of fun."
Joanie (Cycle 6, Runner-Up)
"I think it's when Elyse (Cycle 1) got into the confessional booth and told everybody what she really thought of them. It was the most honest moment I've ever seen on reality television."
Analeigh (Cycle 11)
"My last elimination sticks out because it was so sad but such an incredible growing moment. Now I'm acting and signed with an agency in L.A."
Rebecca (Cycle 4)
"It has to be the judging sequence when I fainted — and I can't live that one down! So obviously that stands out in my memory."
Sam (Cycle 11, Runner-Up)
"The most amazing moment was seeing Marjorie (Cycle 11) get in the bathtub with all those guys. No one saw it coming. That was pretty good stuff!"
Amis (Cycle 10)
"I don't think anyone will forget when Lisa (Cycle 5) pees in a diaper. It was pretty epic. That would have to be the most outstanding moment — and, of course, everything I was in too."
Saleisha (Cycle 9, Winner)
"I won't ever forget when I won. It was a life changing experience. I'm traveling, happy and have plans to go to South Africa for work!"
"As the longest standing judge on Top Model, we've had some crazy panels, but working with Nolé were some of the funniest. He would come out with some of the most unbelievably obnoxious, rude, and funny comments at once."
Ms. Jay (Judge)
"I think my favorite moment is about me — my afros and my outfits."
