The America’s Next Top Model All Stars Finale had plenty of hitches in the episode (from overpowering wind to unfortunate bleached eyebrows) but none was greater than having to disqualify one of the final three.
Angelea Preston was disqualified after she’d put in all of the hard work and completed both her Cover Girl ad campaign and final runway in her Michael Cincho dress.
The CW released a vague statement saying, “After production wrapped on the current cycle of ‘America’s Next Top Model,’ we learned information that made Angelea ineligible and she was subsequently disqualified from the competition. As a result, new scenes were filmed to address this for the audience during the finale.”
The leading theory is that Angelea Preston was crowned America’s Next Top Model All Star in Crete but was later disqualified for breaking the disclosure agreement and telling people she was the winner.
Lisa D’Amato and Allison Harvard had their day in the judging chambers. But it was in Los Angeles. The CW didn’t know that Angelea would be disqualified until after production wrapped, meaning that a judging took place in Crete. If D’amato or Harvard had been named the winner there, would ANTM still have felt the need to re-shoot the entire sequence? Does that mean that Lisa D’Amato is only the All Star winner by default? (She certainly didn’t seem her typical, overjoyed self at the reveal that she’d won.)
