Where Are They Now? America's Next Top Models

Where Are They Now? America's Next Top Models

I always wondered if America's Next Top Model really gives the amateur contestants the exposure they need to get modeling jobs after their reality glory days are over. Judging from these photos, it looks like it does! How credible and desirable the jobs are is a whole different story. The important thing is that they're working, making money, and getting some exposure, right?

CariDee English, winner of Season 7, is busy partying and acting these days. She even made an appearance on Gossip Girl. Nik from Season 5 is working the runways these days, while Season 5 winner Nicole Linkletter is showing off clothes for SoLowStyle.com. Jade from Season 6 is currently the face of Apple Bottom Jeans by Nelly, and the latest winner Jaslene Gonzalez is in ads for Lot 29. Each girl has found her niche in a different place, but one thing they have in common is that they're workin' it.

yeah, I always wonder why I don't see the winner's in any CoverGirl commercials or print ads - what about that $100,000 contact?

I haven't like many of the winners here lately. Nicole has a bland personality and looks so...common. Jaslene can come off as looking "tranny" very easily. Saleisha's win felt so forced, as did the latest winner, Whitney. I love CariDee though; her personality was great.

The problem is they never pick the best models to win. They pick the best bubbly girls who work for the cover of Seventeen magazine. Nothing again Seventeen magazine, I was obsessed with the mag back in the day, but Cover Girl models, and models on Seventeen mag are not high fashion.

Models shouldn't speak in their commercials.

Ugh!! I hate Jaslenes "My life" commercials. They're terrible! I can barely understand what she says and her voice is so obnoxious.

My friends and I were just joking that winning this show seems like you may be hurting your career, possibly because of the contract. The girls who don't win actually have more success, and I never hear about the girls who do win ever.

I've seen Yaya in a face wash ad, maybe Oil of Olay? My fave winners have been Cari Dee & Dani, so I'm glad they're getting work.

Hollywood-wise, Eva and YaYa are doing the most.Eva Pigford was like in three movies this year, and lots of shows this year (Smallville, Everybody Hates Christ, etc) and had her own fashion design reality show called "My Model Looks Better Than Your Model" on BET. Plus, she's everywhere at Urban Hollywood events. Her site is eva-the-diva.com.Between her and YaYa, I think they are the most successful.YaYa DeCosta was in that Antonio Banderas movie "Take The Lead" and has more movies coming out. I think she's also the face for Loreal, or one of those cosmetic lines.Danny might have the best modeling career...especially since she has a contract with Cover Girl.

Yaya is also in a commercial for a facial cleanser, I think Oil of Olay. Those trips to the dermotologist must have worked!
