Ann Ward Named America's Next Top Model

by at . Comments

This absolutely epic, historic, life-altering cycle 15 finale of America's Next Top Model aired last night.

As over-hyped by Tyra Banks ("Do you understand how serious this is?" she asked. "This is Top Model – elevated."), the concluding episode pitted Ann against Chelsey, as the women competed to earn a spread in Italian Vogue.

In the end, the woman who dominated from the beginning - winning five back-to-back photo challenges - was crowned the season's champion. Our congratulations go out to 19-year old Ann Ward!

"I'm so happy that I can make my parents proud," said the 6'2" model, who endured many taunts about her size and gangly figure. "I won! I can't believe any of this right now."

Obviously Ann won because the judges, who know what theyre doing, picked her! Its all said and done so we just need to accept that!

Wait-- how on EARTH did Ann win? I don't mean to sound rude or anything, but honestly, she had awful posture and facial expressions! As a model, these things are everything, and throughout the entire season Ann managed to make terrible faces and walk around with a hunch. She definitely didn't deserve to win.
