ANTM Cycle 10 Winner is Plus Sized, Whitney Thompson

Did you know that America's Next Top Model has been on for ten seasons?! Did you know the latest ANTM Cycle 10 winner Whitney Thompson claims to be a size 14?! We heard on Chelsea Lately she is an 8-10 and think that looks more accurate.

As a blogger who detests Tyra Banks, I'm skeptical that this honor was given out without some sort of selfish motive behind in. Rumor has it that Tyra dishes out Top Honors to models who make her look better. I wouldn't put it behind the self absorbed TV talk show host/former supermodel.

We can now look forward to winner Whitney giving repeated interviews about her fuller figure rather than than where she came from, what her aspirations are and how much she loves Chanel.

When ANTM first started didn't they get a photo spread in Elle Magazine? Now, the winner gets a spread in Seventeen!!! Oh wow, did I just put the pieces together? Could you imagine if last cycles anorexic looking winner was plastered across a teenage fashion magazine? I'm happy Whitney won, don't get me wrong, but it seems like Tyra is trying a little too hard to be the Mother Theresa of body acceptance.

Whitney is the show's first plus-size winner in the history of the show. I would like to know when a size 8-10 became plus size!? Whitney told Seventeen, "People always say you have to be stick-skinny, emaciated and unhealthy and I’ve kind of stood up for being full-figured my whole life. I’m not going to lose 50 pounds - if someone asks me to do that, I’ll go to another modeling agency."

If you want to read more about what Whitney has been saying, read one of the many blogs online! The magazines will only pollute your mind into thinking a size 8-10 is plus sized!

I conclude this blog with an "I like Whitney." I didn't watch the show at all. Do you like Whitney?

On one episode when the girl had to get dressed really fast and go on the catwalk there was a brief part where the camera showed Whitney's clothes with "Whitney, Size 8.5" on the rack

I am the same size (8.5) and 5'8" and people tell me i am skinny all the time. Whitney's legs in that picture do look larger than an 8, but they DON'T look like a 14!

I understand why you didn't watch the show, I find Tyra BEYOND irritating, but just can't stop watching the show.

My point is, if you had watched, you'd realise it was the most obvious fix ever. Even Tyra, every week, would say Whitney was crap, didn't know how to use her face or body, was always really cheesy, was never first called, never won challenges, which made her quite nasty and bitter throughout.

And the girl she was up against in the final two had been consistently at the top of the game the whole way through, it's as if they were just about to call the winner, and suddenly had a brainwave that it'd make eveyone look better if Whitney won.

It was sooooo annoying!

Whitney is not deservd to be the winner. She is so dumb, not know how to use her body and brain as the model should...

I wonder "how Cover Girl gonna do with their ads..." Last time in competition, she was so fake!!!!! And as a client, I will never want to buy Cover Girl product just because of her.

Beside, many people were very disappointed with the judge team....How can this happen??????

I totally agree... I don't usually leave comments on blog but watching the final episode really frustrates me. No offense to plus-size women- I am a plus-sized myself. But this is business we're talking about!

It's about who will sell! Anya has been on the top of her game ever since and just because Tyra needs support in defending her "fat Tyra" issue- they have to make Whitney win. Whitney got a pretty face-- and I'm sure she can sell some clothes. But not ALL types. You can't be a supermodel if you can't make ALL clothes (even the crappiest) look absolutely GREAT on you.

And I'm sorry. I don't like "The Tyra Show". I hate her being judgmental with her guests like she's flawless. Oh well....
