Cycle 6

America's Next Top Model (cycle 5) was the fifth cycle of America's Next Top Model. The judging panel ensemble was altered – Janice Dickinson was replaced by one of the most recognizable models of the 1960s, Twiggy, and Nolé Marin was replaced by runway coach J. Alexander. The cycle's catch-phrase was "Bling It On."

The prizes for this cycle were:

The international destination during this cycle was London, England.

The cast size was reduced from 14 to 13, which was maintained up until cycle 10. The house that the girls stayed in the first half of the competition was later used for the first season of the VH1 show Rock of Love with Bret Michaels.

The winner was 19-year-old Nicole Linkletter from Grand Forks, North Dakota.

Sixth-placer Lisa D'Amato would later claim victory as the winner of cycle 17 All-Stars.
