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.

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 during the months following the finale.

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]
