Default Americas Next Top Model: Every cycle RANKED worst to best

as much as people on twitter love to drag the show nowadays and dig up old clips from 2004 to use against Tyra, theres no denying that ANTM is the OG and most iconic reality tv competition of this format. It inspired countless spin-offs and replicas over the years but none of them even come close to the original series. So I've put together my personal rankings of all 24 cycles of the show. Enjoy!

24th - Cycle 21 (2014)

So someone somewhere along the line decided to bring men into the competition (which was completely unfair first of all..) and it opened the show up to become some sort of Love Island type dating mess. I think the majority of people will agree that the 3 guys/girls cycles were the weakest purely for the fact that the men just brought a completely different dynamic to the show that didnt feel right. Modelling styles are very different for men and women, the girls often had to do 10x as much posing and contortioning to get a decent photo while the guys would just have to tense their abs and look hot.

Cycle 21 imo is the worst of the guys/girls cycles. It has very few likeable people in the cast and the entire thing felt very rigged for a male model to win (after their first guys/girls season flopped because the guys sucked). Chantelle (winnie harlow) was a nasty piece of work and spent her earlier episodes moaning and complaining about everything. They even brought her back a few episodes after she had been eliminated and she still moaned and complained..



Then there was Romeo, the satanist witch who would draw pentagrams in the garden, who later got kicked off the show for punching another model.. A MESS! ..homophobic Denzel who was given that awful beard weave for his makeover. Mirjana who had a boyfriend at home and would flirt and kiss all the boys. Adam who thought he was in some sort of collage fraternity and even turned up to panel drunk AND STAYED?!



This whole cycle was truly a mess. The only contestants who had any sort of likeability were Shei and Raelia.

In the end, Lennox (who undoubtedly had way stronger photos than Will and Keith) ended up finishing 3rd because they clearly wanted a male top 2. Keith ended up winning in a very anti-climatic ending to an awful cycle. Bitchy condescending Will wouldn't have made a much better choice..


Memorable moments:
Miss J coming to visit the house and pretending to get possessed by Romeos pentagram in the garden.

Cycle Ranking 3/10

23rd - Cycle 22 (2015)

Not much better than Cycle 21, was cycle 22. Much of the same romance showmance type stuff that made the last one so tedious carries though into this cycle. The cast this time around were slightly more interesting so thats why this one edged one space ahead.

However, this cycle probably has THE worst contestant of all time, being Mikey, who manipulated and played a dirty game the whole way through, only to be given some sort of sob story ending.. eventually finishing 4th. He completely emotionally manipulated Courtney until her elimination in episode 5. When she finally got the guts to stand up to him, he turned the whole house against her and basically left her an outsider (she even slept outside...)



Then there was Bello and Devin... idek where to start with these two.. A MESS!!! They just hated each other and were at each others throats constantly, messy but entertaining.




These 3 pretty much dominated the whole cycle. Meanwhile Mamé and Lacey were actually decent models and took some stunning photos. Although when Mamé decided to start getting involved with Mikey I just gave up with her..

The best part of the whole series was how Haddasah was constantly low but still managed to drag everyone else each week giving us Jade Cole vibes.



After Mikey and Lacey were sent home before the final runway, Mamé and Nyle (the deaf one) became the final 2, with Nyle winning. Was this deserved? ...meh I never saw the appeal with Nyle tbh.. his photos were just the same face every week (and Tyra ate it up each week). Technically Mamé should've won.

Cycle Ranking: 4/10

22nd - Cycle 20 (2013)

Finishing off the guys/girls cycles is the very first one. Again, this one barely scrapes ahead of the last couple.. Aside from the fact that we actually got a decent winner this time.

Like the previous cycles, this one had the romance stuff too, but I guess with this one it was slightly more interesting being the first ever cycle with boys too. It got old very quick.



due to the social media voting element at the time, this cycle saw a lot of unfair eliminations. The boys had an advantage from the start, obviously fans were gonna vote for the boys because they were new and different. In terms of talent, I'd say this cycle probably had the most talented male models, Don, Cory and even scruffy Phil wasn't that bad.

However, the girls were obviously the better ones again. Jourdan had the competition from the start and Nina and Renee were close behind her.



Overall, this cycle was still bad, just the better of the bad bunch.

Jourdan ended up winning, somehow Marvin managed to make the final 2 despite taking maybe 1 good photo throughout the entire show. Cory was eliminated literally right before the final runway (which was a shock at the time but they ruined it by doing it for the next 2 cycles too).

Cycle ranking: 4/10

Cycle 21 had a worse outcome than you recalled! Lennox actually finished 4th behind ADAM?

21st - Cycle 23 (2016/17)

So for the first time ever, Tyra stepped down as host and we were given a one-off replacement host in Rita Ora. An unusual choice to say the least. Rita didn't do a terrible job as host, but the show just isnt the same without Tyra love her or hate her, shes the glue that holds it all together. With Rita it all felt a bit amateur.

That being said, Cycle 23 was still a decent series, we got some interesting girls and for the first time (maybe ever?) it actually felt like a serious modelling competition. There weren't any of Tyras usual gimmicks and cringe-worthy opinions, it was all just very plain sailing.

One thing that this cycle does spend too much time focusing on is "being a boss".. whatever that means.. and it almost starts to feel like they're competing to become business women rather than models.

This cycle also replaced Miss J with Stacey Mckenzie, who is just all kinds of messy.. from giving irrelevant critiques, to actually breaking down crying to the girls about her own insecurities.. like girl..



In terms of contestants, thank god this cycle re-introduced an all female cast! We got plenty of classic ANTM catty drama. A lot of the early drama revolved around Binta, who gave strong Sandra c12 vibes. The girls were tired of her butting in on conversations and generally just being ignorant



There was also Courtney who had various conditions and illnesses and the other girls tried to call her a liar nnn. The twins Cody and Tash especially hated her.



Overall this was an alright cycle, but it definitely lacked the FUN element that Tyra brings. It all felt way too serious.

The final 2 came down to Tatiana and India, with India bagging the win. It was kinda unexpected seeing as she'd been given such an irrelevant edit for the entire cycle and then just won, but she had some great photos.

Cycle ranking: 5/10

20th - Cycle 24 (2018)

Currently the latest cycle, we saw Tyra return after her absence in cycle 23. With the return of Tyra, we also saw the return of her old tricks and gimmicks.

This cast seemed to be the most varied cast ever, there was 42 year old Erin, and a couple of other girls in their 30s. Khrystyana who was a bigger plus size girl than what they would normally go for, Jeana who has alopecia and just a generally mixed bunch of ethnicitys.

There were also a few messy girls, the first being Christina, who seemed to lack any sort of social skills and spoke to everyone like a robot. She always had something to say about her critique at panel. They gave her a lime green makeover which just made her seem even messier



Then there was Brendi K... I dont even know where to start with this one.. she was just an all round mess. She would flip and start screaming at the girls if anyone spoke bad about her



Jeana and Kyla were the final 2 with Kyla winning.. despite not taking any amazing photos all cycle.. shes the only winner to not even have a wiki page which says it all tbh

Cycle ranking: 5/10

I actually quite enjoyed that cycle, the random villain edit Jeana got towards the end was a scream

I think they were trying to justify Kyla winning over Jeana by giving her a bad edit because its obvious Jeana took stronger pictures

Screaming @ the culling of every season from Boys onwards, it’s what they deserve

I still stand by the fact that Fan voting and Boys ruined the franchise. Although I would’ve put 20 at the bottom and 22 highest out of the Boy seasons. And I think Cycle 23 was actually a pretty good season it just gets hated on because there’s no Tyra or Jays or anything. The drama was quite entertaining and the personalities were really good.

Looking forward to this ranking, I’ll try and comment on every write up if I can!

19th - Cycle 17 (2011)

The first and so far only all stars series of ANTM. They brought back some of the series most memorable girls to try and compete again. On paper it all sounded amazing, unfortunately it was a disaster from the start

They had the all stars do a runway in the middle a huge crowd and a very early looking Nicki Minaj was a guest judge on panel. The whole thing was just very cringey and went about in the completely wrong way.

They then had the girls do a photoshoot where they had to recreate something memorable about themselves.. which again was a huge mess and done completely wrong.



We saw some of the shows most iconic and favourited girls be eliminated early on, such as Brittany, Sheena, Bre, Bianca.. even Camille was booted off 3rd?!



The second half of the cycle didnt get much better.. in fact it got worse.. the finalists all went to Greece and they actually started doing proper photoshoots (too little too late?). The final 3 girls were Lisa, Angelea and Allison, who each had to film some sort of video photoshoot thing that Tyra seemed to love doing around this time.

So then we get teleported into the future where the panel have all re-filmed the final judging with just Allison and Lisa.. Angelea (who was later revealed to be the real winner) is disqualified because she'd worked as an escort.. which really wasn't that big of a deal for them to re-film the entire final panel

Lisa wins and its all very rushed and we're all confused, and still are confused all these years later..

at least this cycle gave us this iconic line..

Angelea was one of my all time favourites, the way they treated her was disgusting and even then, choosing a different winner, they went with Lisa of Allison? The disrespect

I don't know what it is with reality shows but it seems that literally everytime they do an All Stars season it always ends up with the fillers making it to the end and the icons all getting booted early. It always happens with Survivor, Big Brother etc.

17 should've been soooo good with them casting the bitches from most cycles, but it wasn't even a modelling competition they just wanted someone who could do Z-list activities Plus without Jade, Toccara and Natasha it just seemed pointless, ignoring four of the best Cycles so they could cast people like Kayla, Shannon etc.

18th - Cycle 13 (2009)

The petite cycle featured girls who were all 5'5 and under. This was probably as interesting as this cycle got tbh.. I'll admit I haven't watched this cycle in years purely for the fact its just not that exciting.

It's an easy watch for those who don't like drama and fighting, however if, like me, you need to see a good fight, then the most you'll get from this cycle is Erin making a snide remark here and there.

In casting week we're introduced to crazy jesus lover Amber, who originally gets chosen to join the cast but is then disqualified for being an actress It says a lot when the most memorable contestant was only in 1 episode.



There were a few decent models this cycle such as Jennifer, Erin, Laura and Nicole. We also saw that infamous 'race-mashup' photoshoot where the girls had to be a mixture of two races/cultures This imo was even more problematic than the cycle 4 'got milk' one. Especially considering this happened 5 years after.

Ultimately Nicole won, and we all knew she was going to from the start. Nobody even came close. She was different, unique and took some amazing photos. She had that dorky late 00s/early 10s look that all the white girls had back then.

yeah they cast so many boring girls just for the sake of balance.. they probably thought the cast had too many black girls so tried to throw in a couple of the most average white girls they could find They could've at least tried to get girls like Joanie, Jenah or Molly

17th - Cycle 15 (2010)

This was the cycle that ANTM tried to become high-fashion and find a model that would make it big in the high-fashion market. They cast a lot of girls who typically meet that criteria such as Ann, Chelsey, Jane, Kendal, Rhianna. A few more commercial girls also slipped through the net too.. Chris, Terra, Kayla, Esther. Then there was that weird group of girls that were just there for the drama, Kacey, Liz, Lexie etc.

We all knew Ann was going to win from the start. She was just everything Tyra and the judges had been hoping for, tall, slim, awkward looking and could take a good photo. Tyra clearly felt she'd hit the jackpot because she gave Ann 5 first call outs in a row. Idk why the other girls even bothered tbh.



We had Chris for the majority of the cycle to give us the comic relief (because lord knows the other bunch of bores weren't giving us any). She introduced us to Myrtle...



Lexie and Kacey gave us some much needed drama at the start of the cycle, with Lexie holding a house meeting just so everyone could tell Kacey they didnt like her and when Lexie and Ann made a list of fake makeovers and left it for the other girls to find, some of them were fuming nnnn

This cycle also gave us the conveyor belt runway which tbh is probably one of the hardest runways they've ever had on the show





In the end, Ann and Chelsey were the final 2 and Ann ended up winning. We all been knew from day 1 so this really wasn't a shock. I dont think anyone could even argue this was the wrong decision either.

13 was cute but pales in comparison to the other iconic seasons. They should've done a plus size season that would've been more iconic.

15 was when ANTM tried to start taking itself seriously but honestly the best thing about it was Chris who was clearly just a TV personality <3 She should've been on All Stars instead of Kayla, one of the funniest reality stars ever, everything that came out her mouth was hilarious!

16th - Cycle 19 (2012)

This cycle saw the introduction of the social media voting, which imo was one of the worst mechanics brought onto the show. We saw so many random and unfair eliminations each week (even more so than usual). This was also the first cycle after the cast shakeup and the departure of Mr Jay, Miss J and Nigel. Kelly Cutrone stayed because they obviously thought that was such a great idea..

Dubbed 'The College Edition', this cycle only featured girls who were at college (not sure why but yeah). The whole thing just felt like an excuse so Tyra could brag about getting her Harvard degree.



Despite the crap new panel and social media element, this cycle had some good moments throughout.

Messy Mariah who thought she was better than all of the girls randomly quitting in episode 2 was a gag. Kristen was the biggest high school type bully you could imagine, manipulating the girls and causing drama, im all for the drama but even I was turned off by how catty she was, especially towards Leila.

Victoria was a strange mommys girl, who would literally cry on the phone to her mum every 5 minutes telling her how much she loved her... it was weird.



When Leila got eliminated early on, the fan vote meant one girl could return later on in the competition, and it was obviously gonna be her.



In the end, Leila, Laura and somehow Kiara managed to make the final 3, with Leila finishing 3rd and Laura taking the win.

I wouldn't say Laura was undeserving because she could take a good photo (and was miles better than Kiara) but this cycle really was Leila's to lose.

Oh and can we just talk about when Kelly Cutrone starting arguing with the photographer on set she honestly was a piece of work..

15th - Cycle 16 (2011)

If cycle 15 was the high-fashion cycle then cycle 16 must've been the budget blowing cycle because they got some of the biggest names in fashion for this cycle (probably thanks to judge Andre Leon Talley)

This was the first cycle to not feature a casting episode (except cycle 2) and it showed because we really had to try and learn about the girls straight from the get-go.. the good thing about casting is we can decide who we like/dislike and choose our early favourites based on their audition and story.

We had some interesting faces this cycle like Dominique, Michaela, Molly, Jaclyn. This was also the cycle that introduced Alexandria who was hated by pretty much all the other girls.



There was also Monique who was basically just a huge bitch but she could be a scream, especially when they did the meet the fans challenge and that man asked if she would sign his ass or something and Monique pointed at Alexandria and said "no but she will"



This cycle also gave is Mollys disastrous weave, still one of the messiest makeovers in antm history..



Alexandria and Brittani had this bitter feud throughout the season which came to blows when Alexandria won a car in a challenge and the two ended up having a full on screaming war on set. This carried through to panel when Tyra called Brittani out, who then had a panic attack and walked out



The top 6 went to Marrakesh which made for some of the best photoshoots from the show, the photos with the camel and baby jaguar (or whatever it was) were some of my favourites.

Eventually Brittani, Molly and Hannah made the final 3, with Brittani taking the crown. Personally I think Molly should've won this one, her portfolio was just stronger



Cycle ranking: 6/10

Omg I’m loving this! Thread of the year already

I’m pretty much on the same page as you in terms of the cycles. It’s crazy to think how many bad decisions were made in the later cycles.

I haven’t watched a few of the later cycles, I remember seeing a few episodes of Nyles season and I was actually enjoying it, the girl who got 2nd slayed as well.

Cycle 16 was an enjoyable cycle, they bought back final 3 and the girls were a lot better than 15

Cycle 19 was a mess, Kristen was and Kiara snatching final 2 is just all a scream
