The wait is over for America's Next Top Model
fans: On Thursday Tyra Banks
officially announced the models who will return for the show's all-star season.
Fourteen girls have signed up, from cycle one's Shannon—who famously refused to do a nude shoot—to cycle nine's Bianca, who got into an airport brawl with Nikki Blonksy from Hairspray
. We were expecting a girl from every season, but it seems no one from three, six, seven and eight decided it was worth their time.
Or, perhaps, they weren't drama-filled enough. All the girls who made the cut did well in their season, but were also quite dramatic. Jade, from cycle six, has some not-so-nice things to say about the show. She tweeted
I declined #ANTM cycle 17 immensely because my contract was completely Bogus and one sided!...To be Honest #ANTM is all about making "their money" and they do not care about us period!...These girls are all idiots for signing the most ri·dic·u·lous and one sided contract ever!!...These girl's just signed there Rights and Life away! Best of Luck to them cause they sure are going to need it!
Did your favorite make the cut and will you be tuning in?
