Cycle 5

The fourth season of America's Next Top Model aired in spring 2005, with the shooting location being moved from New York City to Los Angeles. The catch-phrase of the season was "Dive In."

These were the last appearances of Janice Dickinson and Nolé Marin who participated as judges. The Beauty Tip of the Week has now been replaced by the My Life as a CoverGirl segment. The house that the girls stayed in the first half of the competition was later used in The CW TV series (successor to UPN with the WB) The Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious and Oxygen TV series Pretty Wicked.

The winner was 20-year-old Naima Mora from Detroit, Michigan.
