Krista White: America's Next Top Model Winner

by at . Comments

If self-serving blow hard Tyra Banks had her way, she'd name herself America's Next Top Model every year.

Fortunately, that's against this show's rules, which meant good things for Krista White last night.

The 26-year-old from Pine Bluff, Arkansas beat out Raina Hein in the finals and was reduced to tears when her name was announced as the winner.

"I can't believe it. I want to pinch myself," said White. "Nobody thought it would be me. For me, to be from the small Pine Bluff with maybe 100 or something people where nobody ever leaves. It's amazing ... I'm excited I'm America's Next Top Model."

Of course, someone has to tell Angela that the competition is over - and she lost.

"I know America loves me," the self-promoting finalist said after being eliminated. "Even though I'm not in the final two, I'm still America's Next Top Model."

Except that you aren't.

Banks referred to White as "the embodiment of a top model." As the winner, she receives a contract with Wilhelmina Models; a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl cosmetics; and a six-page spread in Seventeen.

Were you happy Krista won?

I was very pleased when Krista White became ANTM. She to me embodied Grace Jones and Naomi Campbell all rolled into one body, she represented Tyra Banks and what the program is about. Krista did not forget her upbringing or her roots. I pray she will grow in beauty grace and prosperity in this industry.

Oh my gosh this is the funniest thing I have ever seen. Does it wet when water tohuecs it? No, mine does not. And also, I tried the razor thing but forgot the alcohol and lets just say I ended up in A&E. I should've followed the advice. Harlem this post is hilarious but what I am so shocked about is that it isnt some no body who is trying to make it big its TYRA FREAKING BANKS! I love(d) her now, I gotta go get me some fancy hair' now where did I put that leave in conditioner?genb4s last snippet of wonderful prose ..

I've just seen this final episode in Russia (my home-country). Krista won... and it's strange...I do agree with an opinion that she was not positive in her views. There was always smth/smb, she was dissatisfied with. Is winning a kind of a gift for some previously experienced troubles in this show? I'm really sorry, Raina is unforgettable, I hope that she will become a true star in Europe. She was born a top-model. She is perfect. Yulia.

Wow, I finally watched an episode from this season and I think that the whole of New Zealand has been eager to experience the modelling world. Anyway I am kinda glad that Tyra came to New Zealand she took a photo with my cousin at the icecream shop and it was so weird because I didn't know she was cool with EVERYONE. Go Tyra.

Krista is ugly on the inside. She always had something nasty to say about everyone on the show even her so called friend Angelea. A top model should shine inside as well as outside. She is too old and looks like a drag queen. I think Tyra should review all video takes that they do in private and look at the inside as well. Someone like her is not who I would look up to or allow my girl to look up to...I know why no one liked her she is U G L Y!
