Note: This season is the only season of America’s Next Top Model available on DVD. You can purchase it here. I think the other seasons will be released on DVD eventually, but TV networks are still getting great ratings because of reruns constantly in rotation. The international destination for this cycle was Paris, France.

Adrianne Curry

(Adrianne claims she didn’t receive all her prizes, so this lead to a feud with Tyra.)

    I don’t like this cycle.

  2. Uti Says:

    Wow … 2003, can’t believe the show has been running that long. So probably they are now too old to continue modeling huh?

    • KhrisKline Says:

      not really…look, Shannon has participated Cycle 17 (All-Stars) and she’s only 27 or 28…it’s not too late…Robin, uuh, really, really old, she was 26, she’s nearly 40 now, she’s almost Tyra’s age…but I do remember Kasia from Cycle 16, she’s the oldest, already 26 but she still pursues to model and take note: Robin and Kasia are both the only plus-size in their Cycles…so i think if modeling is really their dream and passion, thry would do it no matter how old or whatever circumstances they’re gonna face…

  4. Рената Says:

  8. Anna Says:

    Elyse had the worst nose job I’d ever seen.

  9. Mimet*DeadMoon* Says:

    Elyse’s the best*.*

    “… this lead to a feud with Tyra.”
    verb use is wrong
    Led: to tend toward or have a result
    Lead: a chemical element in the carbon group

  11. Katherine Says:

    I thought this cycle was really boring. ANTM has gotten much better, with the exception of the latest cycle, cycle 19.

  12. LaToya Says:

    I wish they would show this one on t.v. again. i want to see it!!!!

  13. Kayla's fan Says:

    This cycle was kinda boring, probably because it was the first. The show became so much better and more creative in the following cycles! Elyse definitely stood out for me. She should have won, that would change fashion industry forever…
