Should Ann Ward have been crowned America's Next Top Model? Yes, according to a majority of THG readers who voted in this poll.

But the 6'2" beauty wasn't nearly as confident heading into this week's finale against Chelsey Hersley. In an interview with The New York Post yesterday, Ward said:

"I really thought Chelsey was doing better. It’s still unbelievable that I was even a part of the competition. It just goes to show that even if you are different, you can turn those negatives into really unique positives to be proud of."

Amen, Ann. Watch the 19-year old talk about her victory at length in the following video:

"I'm really upset. I feel cheated. I feel like I have the whole package, what it takes to be America's Next Top Model and I don't think Ann does." - Cycle 15 runner-up Chelsey

Are these the misguided, bitter words of a second-place finisher? Or the accurate assessment of the woman who fell to Ann Ward on last night's season finale of this CW competition?

You tell us! We've posted photos below of both the cycle 15 champion and the contestant who clearly felt she wore her Roberto Cavalli better on the finale. Does Chelsey have a compelling case?

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."
