Since its 2003 debut, America’s Subsequent Prime Mannequin has produced loads of winners — 23 to be precise (and shortly to be 24). Questioning what occurred to all of them? From previous favorites like Eva Pigford to new favorites like Nyle DiMarco, you is perhaps stunned to be taught what your favourite ANTM contestants have been as much as currently!
All of the winners of the present get a modeling contact, a canopy unfold in a style journal, and prize cash. Sadly, not all winners go on to realize Gigi Hadid-level fame. Some have stopped modeling fully, whereas others have switched from modeling to appearing, showing in small roles in movie and TV. However surprisingly, the vast majority of the winners from the present have merely gone again to their common lives. That is what occurred to season 1 winner Adrianne Curry.
“Tyra Banks actually did not assist us out and the present did not put any cash into us,” she revealed in 2007. “We trusted Tyra, however we have all been screwed over.” Adrianne wasn’t the primary mannequin to talk out in opposition to the present. Season three runner-up Yaya DaCosta has additionally spoken in opposition to ANTM, saying opponents from the present aren’t taken significantly by professionals since they’re, technically, “actuality TV stars” — which apparently is a unclean phrase within the trade. “There was such a stigma in Hollywood, and other people don’t understand that,” Yaya stated in 2016. “The stigma didn’t simply need to do with being a mannequin, it was actuality TV on the whole. You didn’t speak about it. It wasn’t in your résumé.”
At the moment, Adrianne has moved away from Hollywood and lives a quiet life in Arizona as an Avon girl. Though she’s grateful for what actuality TV did for her profession, she advises in opposition to it. “I’d advise anybody attempting to get on a present to REALLY take into consideration the implications,” she stated in 2018. “Fame isn’t as nice as everybody makes it out to be. Something you do or say will likely be thrown in your face in 15 years…in your youngsters’s faces…your loved ones’s. What you’re nice with doing now, you might not be OK along with your children (nieces, nephews, and so on.) seeing later. If fame means extra to you than this stuff, do it up!”
