List of America's Next Top Model episodes

The seventeenth cycle of America's Next Top Model (subtitled as America's Next Top Model: All Stars and stylized as America's Next Top Model ALL ★ STARS) premiered on September 14, 2011 on The CW.[1] It featured fourteen returning models from previous seasons.

The judging panel, unchanged since cycle 14, once again consisted of Tyra Banks, Nigel Barker and André Leon Talley.[2] The first judging was conducted in front of a live audience.[3] The international destination for this cycle was the Greek island of Crete.[4] The promotional song for this cycle was "You Make Me Feel..." by Cobra Starship ft. Sabi. This was the final season filmed and broadcast in standard definition.

The winner of the competition was 30-year-old Lisa D'Amato from Los Angeles, California, who originally placed sixth in cycle 5.

Angelea Preston, who originally placed third on cycle 14, and was disqualified from the competition in the final episode of the cycle, said that she had originally won the competition but was stripped of her title after producers learned that she had once worked as an escort.


This season has been subtitled "All-Stars," featuring fourteen returning non-winning contestants representing twelve of the series' sixteen cycles (cycles 3, 6, 7 and 8 are not represented) for a second chance to win the title. Cycles 5 and 11 were each represented by two contestants.[5] cycle 14 contestant Angelea Preston appeared for the third time in this cycle since she was also a semi-finalist on cycle 12. Most notably, Jade Cole, second runner-up of cycle 6, was offered (but rejected) the chance to appear in this cycle, claiming her contract was "bogus and one-sided."[6]


The prizes for this cycle were: A fashion spread in Vogue Italia, a cover and a spread in Beauty in Vogue, a blog on, and a US$100,000 contract with CoverGirl cosmetics

In addition in these regular prizes, the new prizes were: A fashion campaign in Express, a guest correspondent placement for Extra, as revealed in episode 7, the chance to be the face of an ANTM-perfume to be launched and sold nationally.

The contract with IMG Models (present in the last 2 cycles) has been removed.

Episode summaries

Consists of 13 episodes overall.

Nicki Minaj

First aired September 14, 2011[19]

The fourteen All-Stars arrived at their Los Angeles mansion. Most of them were excited to see each other, but Camille’s arrival was received with a lukewarm reception and many did not recognize Kayla. Bianca was upset that Bre, who was her friend in real life, didn’t tell her about her participation. Soon after the introductions, Mr. Jay arrived and led them to their first photo shoot in the backyard. The photo shoot would require the girls to embody the personalities that made them stars during their previous cycles. Shannon refused to use lingerie and chose a bikini instead, which made Jay confused. Also, Bianca was upset that she was getting red extensions for the photo shoot. The personalities each model embodied were:

Model Personality
Alexandria Tough California Girl
Allison Quirky Doll
Angelea Girl from the Hood
Bianca Loud and Sassy
Bre Ghetto fabulous
Brittany Party girl
Camille Diva
Dominique Masculine/Feminine
Isis Confidence
Kayla Proud Lesbian
Laura Country Cutie
Lisa Wild Child
Shannon Angelic
Sheena Harlem but not Hoochie

After the photo shoot, the girls learnt that judging would take place in front of a live audience at the Nokia Plaza, a first for the series. Rap artist Nicki Minaj was the guest judge.

At panel, Lisa, Camille, Isis, Laura and Allison received good criticism from both the judges and the audience, while the crowd’s taunting of Alexandria greatly affected her. Tyra revealed that this week's decision was going to be based on both the photos and the audiences' comments.

Isis' strong photo earned her the first call out (her first between both cycles), while Brittany and Alexandria landed in the bottom two. It was noted that Alexandria was the only girl with negative audience comments, but the judges deemed Brittany, who received neither positive nor negative comments, as forgettable, eliminating her despite taking a good photo.

  • First call-out: Isis King
  • Bottom two: Alexandria Everett & Brittany Brower
  • Eliminated: Brittany Brower
  • Featured photographer: Celeste Canino
  • Special guest: Nicki Minaj, Michael Kanyon, The GAME, Phu Styles

Ashlee Simpson

First aired September 21, 2011[20]

The first shocking elimination alarmed many of the remaining girls, but their scare was soon overshadowed by the announcement of their impending makeovers. Many girls saw minimal changes, but Bre, Alexandria and Lisa had meltdowns over the cutting of their hair, though the latter two end up liking it (Though Alexandria's reaction may say otherwise).

For this week’s photo shoot, the girls were each given a brand word, which they tried to personify in their photo (an advertisement for Pink's Hot Dogs) and for the rest of the competition. The girls and their brand words were as follows:

Model Branding Word
Alexandria Tough
Allison Unique
Angelea Persistence
Bianca Candid
Bre Girlfriend
Camille Proud
Dominique Survivor
Isis Inspiration
Kayla Free
Laura Loveable
Lisa Daring
Shannon Trustworthy
Sheena Unexpected

At their "Ty-Overs" (Short for Tyra inspired makeovers), Bre was upset due to getting short hairstyle, In which she almost left the competition over. Alexandria was crying of happiness about her new, drastically shorter hair, which left the girls annoyed.

At panel, many girls received praise either for their photos or for embodying their brand word well. Lisa’s devil-may-care photo and daring outfit won the judges and she received the first call-out. Conversely, Kayla and Sheena’s failure to both produce a standout photo as well as not portraying their brand well saw them in the bottom two. The judges saw more potential in Kayla eliminating Sheena.

  • First call-out: Lisa D'Amato
  • Bottom two: Kayla Ferrel & Sheena Sakai
  • Eliminated: Sheena Sakai
  • Featured photographer: Ricky Middlesworth
  • Special guests: Ashlee Simpson, Martin Lindstrom, Loretta Nero, Yoshi Hagiwara, Jada Fitzgerald, Craig Beaglehole

Kristin Cavallari

First aired September 28, 2011[21]

Star of Laguna Beach, Kristin Cavallari, arrived at the girls’ mansion and talked to them about achieving real world success after a reality show. Next, the girls met Nigel for their reward challenge, which would require them to answer questions during an interview on Extra, conducted by Mario Lopez. The girls were divided via schoolyard pick (starting with Lisa and Bianca), and it was only after the groups are created that they were informed that the winning team would win immunity. Lisa’s over-enthusiasm, Angelea’s reservations and Bianca's crudeness got the thumbs down, while Allison’s to-the-point answers, Isis’ confidence and Kayla’s sincerity got the thumbs up. In the end, the team consisting of Allison, Bianca, Bre, Camille, Kayla and Shannon won immunity, with Allison winning a guest-correspondent role on Extra for being the best overall.

This week’s photo shoot saw the girls paired up (one from each of the immune and non-immune group) on stilts.

Safe Unsafe
Allison Angelea
Bianca Lisa
Bre Laura
Camille Isis
Kayla Dominique
Shannon Alexandria

Many of the non-immune girls felt the pressure and produced stunning photos; Bianca’s fear of heights caused her to cry before the shoot, although she produced a strong shot nevertheless.

At panel, Tyra noted that the non-immune were overall much better. Angelea was praised for asking Nigel to clarify how she should balance both a professional style of answering interviews while still being able to showcase her "ghetto" personality. However, her mediocre photo landed her in the bottom two with Isis. While critiquing the bottom two, Tyra noted that they were not the weakest, but because of the immunity twist, the judges had to compare who was stronger out of the two. In the end, Angelea’s photo was deemed to be marginally better, and Isis was sent home.

  • Immune/First call-out: Allison Harvard
  • Bottom two: Angelea Preston & Isis King
  • Eliminated: Isis King
  • Featured photographer: Sarah Silver
  • Special guests: Kristin Cavallari, Mario Lopez, Michael Kanyon, Trey Knight

Anthony Zuiker

First aired October 5, 2011[22]

The episode starts with Kayla was rushed to the hospital due to a cardiac arrhythmia and mini heart attack. Afterwards, the girls convened at the studio of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and met producer, Anthony Zuiker, who gave them the opportunity to audition for a role as their reward challenge. Some of the girls found it hard to memorize the long medical terms. Lisa dismayed Jay for not bringing her fire on set and ultimately forgetting all of her lines. Angelea and Bre impressed with their flawless takes, but it was Bre who ultimately won a guest starring role on a CSI episode.

For their photo shoot, the girls posed with male models for a fashion campaign in Express. They had to embody different personas as follows:

Models Personas
Alexandria, Angelea & Camille The Socialite
Allison & Shannon The Girlfriend
Bre, Bianca & Laura The Flirt
Dominique, Kayla & Lisa The Cool Chick

At panel, Allison, Angelea, Dominique, Kayla, Laura and Shannon received good feedback. Camille was criticized for not yet producing a stellar photograph throughout the season; Alexandria's photo was deemed to be "aged" while Lisa was castigated for producing a bad film. She further irked the judges when she tried to blame the male models. Angelea received the first call-out while Camille and Lisa found themselves in the bottom two, Camille for producing a bad photograph and Lisa for complaining. Tyra handed the final photo to Lisa, Camille was sent home.

  • First call-out: Angelea Preston
  • Bottom two: Camille McDonald & Lisa D'Amato
  • Eliminated: Camille McDonald
  • Featured photographer: Alvaro Goveia
  • Special guests: Anthony Zuiker, Robert David Hall, Lisa Gavales, Michael Kanyon

La Toya Jackson

First aired October 12, 2011[23]

Shannon drew up a time allocation schedule for everyone's phone usage. Bianca noticed a flaw in the system, but when she tried to explain this to Shannon, Shannon teared up, believing that Bianca was attacking her. Lisa became involved in the disagreement, angering Bianca who felt that Lisa was not minding her own business.

The girls headed to Santa Monica Beach for their runway challenge. They were tasked to walk for the Kardashian Sisters Collection, which required them to jump onto a moving carousel mid-walk. Although only one winner was intended, the sisters were unable to decide between Bre and Lisa, so both girls won an outfit from the collection. Backstage, Miss J. confronted Bianca about her negative attitude, and she explained the conflicts she was having with the other girls. This however, upset Lisa and she confronted Bianca again, but Bre managed to mediate the situation.

At the photo shoot, the girls had to portray Michael Jackson through different stages of his life. La Toya Jackson was present at the shoot to help the girls embody her brother.

Model Era
Alexandria Late 1990s
Allison 1960s
Angelea Late 1980s
Bianca Early 1980s
Bre 1980s
Dominique Late 1980s
Kayla Early 1980s
Laura 1990s
Lisa Early 1980s
Shannon Late 1980s

Most of the girls impressed La Toya, but Angelea was overwhelmed due to her love of the Jackson family. At panel, most of the girls impressed the judges, however, Angelea's photo, Bianca's bad attitude, and Lisa's attire dismayed some of the judges.

Tyra surprised the girls by revealing that it was La Toya who arranged the call-out order this week. Laura received her first ever first call-out of her Top Model career. Conversely, Angelea and Lisa found themselves in the bottom two for the second time. Tyra handed the elimination proceedings over to La Toya, who explained that her brother had a loving and giving nature, and in the same vein, both girls would be staying, and neither was eliminated.

Coco Rocha

First aired October 19, 2011[25]

The girls were taken to the beach, where they were introduced to a charity initiative - they would be split into two teams of five, and will participate in a game of flag football. To make up the numbers, recently eliminated contestants Brittany, Sheena, Isis and Camille were invited back to join them. Each team was also joined by two players from the NFL (Julian Edelman, Jahvid Best, Kareem Jackson, and Dante Hughes), with the winning team earning US$5,000 for their football players' charities. In addition, at undefined points during the match, Nigel called the girls over for a photo shoot challenge with the football players. Despite falling behind early on, the Blue team, consisting of Allison, Angelea, Bianca, Bre and Laura, won the game 14-7 (and the charity money), but it was Kayla of the Red team who performed the best at the shoot and she won a photo shoot with Andre for Tyra’s website as her prize.

Later, the girls were introduced to Coco Rocha, and discovered they would be modelling with her in pairs for their bar fight-themed photo shoot. Angelea disappointed Jay by arriving on set with low energy and after some negative feedback, left the set midway through the shoot, but returned with new life and impressed Jay. Alexandria and Bre entertained everyone with their loud screaming throughout the shoot, but Jay and Coco were concerned that they were more "actors" than "models."

Alexandria & Bre
Allison & Kayla
Angelea & Laura
Bianca & Shannon
Dominique & Lisa

At panel, the pair of Dominique and Lisa received top praise for their shoot and they earned the top two call-outs (this also marks Dominique's first ever top call-out between her two cycles), while Bianca, Angelea and Allison also impressed the panel. Alexandria and Bre landed in the bottom two for their poor performance at the shoot, and both were told that they were not living up to their standards from their original cycles, but in the end, Alexandria was spared again and Bre left the panel with no hugs.

Kathy Griffin

First aired October 26, 2011[25]

This week's reward challenge saw the girls creating their own signature fragrances and endorsing their product in front of a live audience, greeting the public in bathtubs. Alexandria irritated some of the girls when she took a long time picking her ingredients, while Bianca refused to pose in the tub. cycle 3 winner Eva Marcille hosted the launch party. Lisa won the challenge for her fun label and endorsement (she splashed in the tub) which granted her immunity from the next elimination.

Model Fragrance Name
Alexandria Diamondatrix
Allison Honey Blood
Angelea Angelea
Bianca Candid
Dominique Survivor
Kayla Free
Laura Love
Lisa Neon
Shannon Smitten

For the photo shoot, the girls emulated reality TV stars while riding and posing on a motorcycle. Shannon failed to portray the sassiness of her star while Kayla got distracted by screaming fans.

NeNe Leakes Alexandria, Angelea, Laura & Lisa
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi Allison, Bianca, Dominique, Kayla & Shannon

Comedian Kathy Griffin surprised the girls at panel with a comedic entrance. Tyra also announced an addition to this cycle's prize package - the face of the new America's Next Top Model Fragrance. Bianca became vocally defensive when questioned about her behavior during the fragrance launch party. After the deliberations, Tyra stated that she only had seven photos in her hand (meaning two girls would be going home). Lisa's immunity and her strong photo earned her another first call-out while Bianca, Kayla and Shannon landed to the bottom three, Shannon for being too safe and not standing out, Kayla for slowly regressing throughout the competition and Bianca for her bad attitude and behavior. Shannon received the last photo, Bianca and Kayla was sent home.


First aired November 2, 2011[26]

Mr. Jay announced that the remaining all-stars would make a music video for the week's assignment. Each of them was assigned a tune and they had 20 minutes to compose lyrics. Allison got frustrated because of her lack of a singing background. Lisa’s past song-writing experience helped her excel and ultimately won the reward challenge.

The next day, Tom Polce tasked the girls to incorporate "Pot Ledom" ("Top Model" spelt backwards) as a hook into their song.

Model Music Video Title
Alexandria Go, Go, Go...
Allison Underwater
Angelea I'm Here
Dominique Tooch Ya Booty
Laura Southern Sweet Girl
Lisa I Be Like Whoa!
Shannon World Go Round

Allison had a hard time then she managed to pull it together. After the recording, Lisa earned a visit from her fiancé Adam. Later, rapper Game guided them to film their music videos.

Game was impressed by Allison’s awkwardness that shone in her video, and was touched by her dedication of the song to her late father. Her stellar video earned her the first call-out, while Alexandria and Angelea landed in the bottom two, Alexandria for her rigid and robotic movements and Angelea's lack of energy that didn’t match up to the strong lyrics of her song. Ultimately, Angelea was saved for a third time and Alexandria was sent home.

  • First call-out: Allison Harvard
  • Bottom two: Alexandria Everett & Angelea Preston
  • Eliminated: Alexandria Everett
  • Featured director: Gretchen Warthen
  • Special guests: Keenan Cahill, Madison Hohrine, Tom Polce, Anita Patrickson, Adam (Lisa's Fiancé), Game

Nikos Papadopoulos

First aired November 9, 2011[27]

André arrived at the girls’ house and informed them that they would be travelling to Greece for the remainder of the competition. When they arrived at Athens, Miss J. tasked them to write a one-minute speech introducing themselves to the Greek Tourism dignitaries once they touch down at their final destination – Crete. Almost all of the girls committed minor faux pas. Lisa was dressed inappropriately, Allison was really great, Shannon focused too much on herself, Dominique’s nervousness showed through, Laura was too excitable and Angelea signed off crudely. All these gave Allison, the only one who did not commit any errors, the challenge win. She won a piece of Lina Fanouraki jewelry.

When the models arrived at their new home, they were given the opportunity to collaborate with designer Michael Cinco to design their final runway gown should they make it to the final two.

This week’s photo shoot required the girls to model lingerie while posing into a giant bowl of Greek salad. Shannon refused to pose in underwear and she sat out of the shoot, while Allison’s tearing eyes and Laura’s migraine caused discomfort at their respective shoots.

At panel, Dominique’s photo was universally applauded, and while Allison’s eyes were closed in her photo, she pulled off a great shot nevertheless. Laura’s erotically-charged photo didn’t sit well with the judges, especially since they felt it was contradictory to her "lovable" brand. This caused her to land in the bottom two for the first time (in both of her cycles) together with Shannon, whom the judges appreciated for standing up for her beliefs, but in the end, the judges felt that Laura's overall performance in the competition was better, and Shannon was eliminated.

  • First call-out: Dominique Reighard
  • Bottom two: Laura Kirkpatrick & Shannon Stewart
  • Eliminated: Shannon Stewart
  • Featured photographer: Nikos Papadopoulos
  • Special guests: Vicky Kaya, Maria Kafetzaki, Dimitris Kounenakis, Lina Fanouraki, Michael Cinco, Georgina Wilson

Exploring Greece

First airing November 16, 2011[28]

The week’s reward challenge required the girls to critique and assess each other’s modelling potential. Angelea and Laura got into a heated argument, causing the former to storm out in frustration. However, when asked to statistically rate each other’s overall star-quality, Allison was ranked the weakest while Laura scored the strongest, winning the challenge. After the challenge, the girls were brought out for a day of yachting, swimming, clubbing and drinks. This week’s photo shoot required the girls to portray ancient Olympic sports, namely:

Model Olympic Sport
Allison Discus
Angelea Shot Put
Dominique Javelin
Laura Archery
Lisa Hurdles

At panel, all of the girls managed to produce good shots, albeit all were met with mixed reactions from the judges. In the end, Angelea and Dominique landed in the bottom two. The judges felt that although Dominique had taken striking photos throughout the cycle, and stronger shots than Angelea overall, she was not as memorable, and whilst Angelea had a better personality, she tended to crack under pressure. However, Angelea was given yet another chance and Dominique was eliminated.

  • First call-out: Laura Kirkpatrick
  • Bottom two: Angelea Preston & Dominique Reighard
  • Eliminated: Dominique Reighard
  • Featured photographer: Nigel Barker
  • Special guests: Twylem Pyper, Maria Cristina Petrone, Michael Kanyon


First airing November 23, 2011[29]

This was the recap episode that highlighted scenes from the first ten episodes of the cycle. It also included some never-before-seen footage such as Angelea and Bianca arguing over a phone list but later gaining a mutual understanding, the girls questioning Isis about her transgender life, Bianca and Camille's verbal altercation over phone use, Alexandria and Allison chatting about the former’s super nice and sensitive tough person, Bre chiding Bianca for not contributing to household chores, Angelea’s fascination with Kim Kardashian’s buttocks, Lisa’s many crazy antics around the house, a day trip to the Greek island of Santorini, the girls celebrating Laura’s 22nd birthday, and Angelea and Laura’s Greek massage (as part of Laura’s challenge win prize from episode 10).

Tyson Beckford

First airing November 30, 2011[30]

The final four girls were given a blog-writing challenge for They had 3 hours to select an outfit, drive to a location and take a photo of themselves there, and head back to their mansion to write about Crete lifestyle and fashion.

This week, instead of a regular photo shoot, the girls were required to film 2 days worth of motion editorial for Tyra’s New York Times best-selling young adult novel Modelland. Laura and Lisa excelled while Allison's watery eyes gave her problems again, and Angelea struggled due to a family crisis.

After the Modelland motion editorial, Allison and Laura’s short postings are well received, while Lisa failed to talk about fashion, therefore handing Angelea her first win of the cycle. She won a 7-night return trip to Crete and a gold tiara.

After the blog, model Tyson Beckford joined them on the second day.

At panel, in what Tyra called "one of the longest deliberations ever" (the deliberation over who would go home lasted a little over 1.5 hours), Lisa and Angelea's strong performances saved them and in turn, landed Allison and Laura in the bottom two. The judges were torn over Laura, who had a bubbly personality but impressed to take high-fashion photos, and Allison, who was opposite of Laura, she is introverted shy but had a quirkiness. In the end, Allison was saved and Laura was eliminated.

  • First call-out: Lisa D'Amato
  • Bottom two: Allison Harvard & Laura Kirkpatrick
  • Eliminated: Laura Kirkpatrick
  • Featured director: Tony Croll
  • Special guests: Franca Sozzani, Tyson Beckford, Michael Kanyon, Michael Cinco

All-Star Finale

First airing December 7, 2011[31]

The final three girls shot their CoverGirl Intense Shadow Blast commercial and print ad. Lisa struggled to saying "oh yes", and the strong light once again caused problems for Allison's watery eyes, although both managed to pull off commendable efforts in the end, while Angelea did well in both.

The girls then were photographed for Vogue Italia. All three did a good job, and then it was time for the final runway show.

For the final runway show, the final three wore personally-customized gowns by Michael Cinco, and were joined by previously eliminated girls Shannon, Dominique and Laura. The elaborate theatrics of the show required the girls to swim underwater, do a quick-change, fly in the air and walk to their music video song from episode 8. Angelea cried shortly before the show started due to the pressure. All three finalists faced minor runway faux pas - Lisa accidentally swam to the side of the pool (instead of the ramp at the centre) to fix her mask, which fell off as the result of trying to do a flip underwater, Angelea had problems remaining underwater and Allison impressed to control with her dress due to the gushing wind.

At panel, it was revealed that Angelea was disqualified by production for unspecified reasons, and that the judging was now back in Los Angeles.

  • Disqualified: Angelea Preston

For the CoverGirl print ad, Allison's photo was criticized for failing to "smize" and looking vacant, while Lisa's was applauded for being alluring and flirtatious. Both were impressed for their CoverGirl commercial - Allison was too introverted while Lisa impressed to showcase her personality. For the final runway, Allison's graceful swimming was lauded, as was Lisa's command of her dress, but Allison was disparaged for her strong runway walk and Lisa for her swimming fiasco.

In the final deliberations, the judges agreed that both Allison and Lisa had personified their brands ("unique" and "daring" respectively). The merits and drawbacks of both finalists were discussed - Allison was loved by photographers and designers alike as both a model and a muse but however, her introverted personality would deem her inappropriate for the role of an Extra correspondent.

Lisa's sassy and outgoing personality, as well as her progress of refinement throughout the course of the competition was appreciated, as was her superior runway walk and confidence. It was noted that whilst Lisa's may not have been the best model, she was an all-rounder, being a good singer, performer, entertainer, actress, celebrity and would easily command attention on the red carpet – a vital attribute for an Extra correspondent. However, her personality could easily come off as too tough and conceited.

In the end, the second half of Modelland was shown, which revealed Lisa as the winner of America’s Next Top Model: All Stars.

  • Final two: Allison Harvard & Lisa D'Amato
  • America's Next Top Model: Lisa D'Amato
  • Featured photographers: Nikos Papadopoulos, Dusan Reljin
  • Special guests: Paige Cali, Michael Kanyon, Valentina Serra, Michael Cinco

Angelea's disqualification controversy

Following the finale, reports began to speculate regarding the disqualification of Angelea Preston. Due to the bizarre circumstances surrounding the event, including the re-shooting of the final panel/winner reveal, many people began to speculate that Preston had been originally named the winner prior to her disqualification. Multiple theories circulated on social media the months following the finale, all of which were debunked.

In January 2013, Angelea confirmed that she had indeed won the competition prior to being stripped of the title, but it was not because she had revealed details of her win before it aired on television, as was most suspected.[32] Tyra Banks did not comment on the situation.

In September 2014, Angelea revealed that the reason she was stripped of the title was because she had been working as an escort prior to participating in America's Next Top Model. She said the producers had been made aware of this before the filming of cycle 17, but decided to disqualify her only after she had already won the title. She is now filing a lawsuit against the producers, the network, and the studios due to breach of contract for $3,000,000 in damages.[33] Other allegations in the lawsuit included that the show violated fair labor practices by forcing her and other contestants to work 16-hour days, sometimes without a meal break, keeping the contestants in isolation for five to six hours at a time, without food or water. Additionally, she alleged that she wasn't paid a legal hourly wage for her work, nor overtime wages. She also claimed that show staff failed to provide her with proper medical attention when she suffered a panic attack during filming.[34][35]
