America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 17 (also known as America’s Next Top Model: All-Stars and stylized as America’s Next Top Model ALL ★STARS) is the seventeenth cycle of America’s Next Top Model and the eleventh season to be aired on The CW network. It premiered on September 14, 2011. America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 17 features fourteen returning models from previous seasons.

The winner was 30 year-old Lisa D’Amato from Los AngelesCalifornia, who originally placed 6th in Cycle 5.

The winner will receive a spread in Vogue Italia, the cover of and a spread in Beauty in Vogue, a blog on and a US$100,000 contract withCoverGirl cosmetics. New to the prize package this year is an Express fashion campaign, the chance to be a correspondent on Extra and, 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.The judging panel, unchanged since Cycle 14, once again consists of Tyra BanksNigel Barker and André Leon Talley.

The first judging was conducted in front of a live audience. The international destination for this Cycle is the Greek island of Crete.

The promotional song for this cycle is, “You Make Me Feel…” by Cobra Starship Feat. Sabi.

This season has been subtitled “All-Stars,” featuring fourteen returning non-winning contestants representing twelve of the series’ sixteen cycles (Cycles 367 and 8 are unrepresented) for a second chance to win the title. Cycles 5 and 11 are each represented by two contestants. 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.” The returning contestants where:


On the “America’s Next Top Model” All★Stars cycle finale, it came down to Lisa D’Amato, Allison Harvard and Angelea Preston.

But at the final judging, only Allison and Lisa were present.

Allison and Lisa were the final two, with Lisa being declared the winner.

The judges just said that Angelea had been disqualified. But they did not elaborate past that much information.

Some people are saying that Angelea posted “Top Model” spoilers on her Facebook page. Some on Wiki Answers are even saying she said that she won the season, so they re-shot the finale and had Lisa win instead.

We have received an official statement from the CW:
“After production wrapped on the current cycle of America’s Next Top Model, we learned information that made Angelea ineligible and she was subsequently disqualified from the competition.  As a result, new scenes were filmed to address this for the audience during the finale.”


Also according to, the rumor is Preston might have bragged about her victory on her Facebook page before the finale, thus breaking the rules of the competition.

During the competition I got a special love for the mystical darling of Allison. I thought she will win, she’s has the poise and humbleness at the same time. Her charm makes her the All-Stars factor, and she takes “speechless” photos.
But after all the controversial news surrounding the finale, I think they made a good choice with Lisa. After-all Angelea lost it for herself.

Let’s see what ANTM will bring next season.. G!  Check out what Janice has to say about ANTM

#gsmemiss #superando #levisilvanie @levi_silvanie #curacao #curaçao #wenshow Always be mindful that you're a product of your environment. 
So choose an environment that will best develop you toward your objective. 
Analyze your life in terms of your environment. 
Are the things around you helping you toward your success, or are they holding you back? 
The first step toward getting somewhere is to decide that you're not going to stay where you are. 
You're not a captive of your environment. 
If you don't like where you are, you can make some changes. 
You're not planted permanently in the ground like a tree. 
Don't say, "You would, if you could," start saying, "You will, because you can." When you become a part of anything it becomes a part of you.

Here's to all volunteers, all leaders, all beautiful beings that these days  reflected this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another. × THANK YOU ALL × HARTELIJK BEDANKT × MUCHISIMAS GRACIAS ×

Tomorrow it will be Sta. Rosa! #dunaunman #ganaunkurason #positivismo #kosbonso

It's better to be a failure in something you love, than attempting to be a success in something you don't.
Don't set compensation as a goal.

#WENSHOW "Don't be afraid of what life has to offer you.

If you believe that life is worth living,
your belief will help create the fact.

You may write me down in history 
With your bitter, twisted lies, 
You may tread me in the very dirt 
But still, like dust, I'll rise. 
Does my sassiness upset you? 
Why are you beset with gloom? 'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells 
Pumping in my living room. 
Just like moons and like suns, 
With the certainty of tides, 
Just like hopes springing high, 
Still I'll rise. 
Did you want to see me broken? 
Bowed head and lowered eyes? 
Shoulders falling down like teardrops. 
Weakened by my soulful cries. 
Does my haughtiness offend you? 
Don't you take it awful hard 'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines 
Diggin' in my own back yard. 
You may shoot me with your words, 
You may cut me with your eyes, 
You may kill me with your hatefulness, 
But still, like air, I'll rise. 
Does my sexiness upset you? 
Does it come as a surprise 
That I dance like I've got diamonds 
At the meeting of my thighs? 
Out of the huts of history's shame 
I rise 
Up from a past that's rooted in pain 
I rise 
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide, 
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide. 
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear 
I rise 
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear 
I rise 
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, 
I am the dream and the hope of the slave. 
I rise 
I rise 
I rise.

#WENSHOW It's never the situation, it's your reaction to the situation.

The way you react to circumstances determines your feelings. 
Your quality of life is determined not by what life brings to you, but by the attitude you have towards life. 
What happens to you is less significant than what happens within you. 
You cannot always control your circumstances, but you can control your own thoughts. 
It's not your position but your disposition that matters. 
#WENSHOW Whatever comes your way,
give it meaning and transform it into something of value.
Your personal growth is the process of responding positively to change.

A precious stone cannot be polished without friction, nor humanity perfected without trials.
