Tyra Banks' long-running reality competition show America's Next Top Model returns for its 20th cycle this Friday at 7 pm on The CW. This year's contest has an added twist as men join the cast of aspiring models in a 'Guys and Girls' edition of the show. In total, sixteen contestants will complete for a prize package which is billed as 'career-launching'.
None of the 19 previous winners can claim to have reached the same heights of supermodel stardom as their host and mentor, but several contestants throughout the years remain in the industry as working models. Appearing in television commercials and print advertisements, a few have also been seen in the pages of Vogue Knitting. Cycle 5's Kim Stolz and Bre Scullark have both graced its pages, while Cycle 11 winner McKey Sullivan has been a cover girl.
The most recent Top Model alum to model knitwear is Cycle 7's Eugena Washington. Reaching the final three on the show, Washington is now represented by modeling agencies around the country, including Elite Model Management, the agency which awarded contracts to the winners of Top Model for five cycles.
