The CW reveals 'America's Next Top Model's tenth-season cast


By Christopher Rocchio, 01/17/2008 

The CW has revealed the identities of the wannabe models that will be walking the runway on America's Next Top Model's tenth season, which will premiere Wednesday, February 20 at 8PM ET/PT.

Unlike the show's last four editions, Top Model 10 will feature 14 girls, tying the franchise record set by Top Model's Fall 2004 third season and Spring 2005 fourth season

Top Model 10's cast ranges in age between 18 and 24 and includes two hostesses, two girls who work in retail sales and four students.  The tenth-season cast is also unusually East Coast-focused, with four finalists from New York and two each from Massachusetts and Florida.  Only one of the girls is from California.

Former supermodel and Dancing with the Stars fourth-season celebrity participant Paulina Porizkova will be replacing Twiggy on Top Model's tenth-season judging panel.  Twiggy had been a regular member of Top Model's judging panel since she replaced Janice Dickinson for the show's Fall 2005 fifth season, and "is leaving due to scheduling conflicts," The CW announced in November.

Porizkova will join Top Model creator Tyra Banks; runway expert J. "Ms. J." Alexander; and photographer Nigel Barker on tenth-season judging panel. In addition, Top Model 10 will feature additional special guest judges and the return of Jay Manuel as photo shoot director.

Banks' syndicated daytime talk show The Tyra Banks Show relocated from Los Angeles to New York last summer, meaning Top Model's tenth season also filmed in New York for the first time since the show's fourth edition.

Top Model 10's winner will receive the same grand prize package that was first introduced during the show's Fall 2006 seventh installment -- a management deal with Elite Model Management; a $100,000 contract with cosmetics company CoverGirl; and a cover story and six-page fashion spread in an issue of Seventeen magazine.

Similar to Top Model's Fall 2007 ninth edition, Top Model 10 will premiere with a one-hour episode that will conclude with the judges selecting the tenth season's finalists.  Top Model 10's first finalist will then be booted at the conclusion of the show's February 27 broadcast.

America's Next Top Model's 14 finalists are:

- Aimee, an 18-year-old hostess from Spanaway, WA

- Allison, a 19-year-old hostess from Waunakee, WI

- Amy (aka "Amis"), a 20-year-old waitress from Bartlesville, OK

- Anya, a 19-year-old in retail sales from Honolulu, HI

- Atalya, an 18-year-old student from Brooklyn, NY

- Claire, a 24-year-old production coordinator from New York, NY

- Dominique, a 23-year-old receptionist from Columbus, OH

- Fatima, a 22-year-old student from Boston, MA

- Katarzyna, a 22-year-old in finance from Roslyn, NY

- Kimberly, a 20-year-old customer service agent from Worcester, MA

- Lauren, a 22-year-old artist from Brooklyn, NY

- Marvita, a 23-year-old in retail sales from San Francisco, CA

- Stacy Ann, a 22-year-old student from Miami, FL

- Whitney, a 20-year-old student from Atlantic Beach, FL
