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.

America's Next Top Model Poster

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 need to correct my spelling from previous post. Appalling1 Am I the only one who is horrified at the grammar these young women have used on all of these cycles? I would think a grammar coach would be helful for their future lives after and during their modeling careers if they even have them. Some are just as sweet as can be but the grammar?

Krista is far too thin and uses the most apalling grammar.

Raina has the worst runway walk, like she's trying to stomp on ants! She has a beautiful face, but she's awkward and her over-giddy, over-cornyness is annoying!!! Krista is not as beautiful, but she's a much more talented model.

yes let's say krista is not that beautiful..but did those people think that the show is not only depending on the outer appearance of the contenders? its about the talent..confidence..and how to look very different among any others..a model dont need to become very beautiful..but on how to carry your personality and how to get atand out! and krista have it..her look is absolutely stunning..

Well, just look who's got more work now? and got international bookings to boot? It's Raina. so Tyra and co. made a mistake! That hypocritical Krista was just too old looking for modeling.

Krista won because she was the better model. It's about selling fashion and beauty products.

What a load of crap! Raina was a thousand times better looking then Krista Krusty! On the final episode I knew Krista would win. The big fat black judge kept putting down Raina and praising Krista. Do the numbers people. Three black judges and one white judge. I guarantee you that Raina will end up doing much better in Modeling and everything else then Krista. Raina has a great attitude and was very classy. Krista looked like a pissed off crack head who acted like she was entitled to win. All during the show she had a "self entitled attitude". As soon as she won she started acting all sweet and crying about how she was doing this for other young girls who looked like her. Even Tyra was spewing crap about how Krista winning "was much bigger then her". Oh please! Blah, Blah, Blah. Never watching this crap show again.

Krista is ugly, she is boney and she is just not Model Type. The show felt sorry for her because she told her depressing story about nobody liking her. If you take off the hair and makeup, she looks like a man. Period. Disappointed.

Okay, Krista is ugly, she is boney and she is just not Model Type. The show felt sorry for her because she told her depressing story about nobody liking her. If you take off the hair and makeup, she looks like a man. Period. Disappointed.
