Fans of America's Next Top Model may know that the new champ, Jaslene Gonzalez, actually competed in the previous cycle, but fell shy of the final 13. But you may not know why. In a Q&A with TVGuide.com, Jaslene shares that her exit was predicated by "something personal... something that wasn't aired. There were a lot of things I had to fix, personal things. [So] I went home, I stayed with my family, I took some therapy, and I just tried to get myself together."
