'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 22 Finale
UPDATE: The winner of cycle 22 was fan-favorite Nyle DiMarco.
Tonight is part two of the grand finale for America's Next Top Model cycle 22 and we see who will be the winner of the final installment of the series. That's right. Tyra Banks has announced that this will be the last season for the ANTM franchise. In a post on Instagram, Banks left this lengthy message: Thinking #ANTM #cycle22 should be our last cycle. Yeah, I truly believe it's time. Our diehard fans know we've expanded the definition of beauty, presented what Flawsome is, tooched and booched and boom boom boomed, shown the world how to show their neck, rocked couture/catalogue/commercial poses, have found our (and your) light, strutted countless runways, gone on tons of go-sees, added guys to the girls mix, and have traveled around the globe and back again. Yeah, it's time. It really is. Wow, I am SO proud of what Top Model has done. #ANTM brought the intimidating modeling world to the masses. We were the first reality show based in the fashion world. I never thought my little idea would have people everywhere thinking differently about how they take photos. And I never thought we'd do 22 cycles. Whoa! So many!!! And what rhymes with 22? You. And you and you and you and you! YOU made Top Model what it is. We are a global force that has so many international versions around the world because of YOU! That's amazing and beyond anything that I ever dreamed. I set out to create a show where Perfect is Boring. So I hope you continue to love your freckles, your moles, your big forehead, your big eyes, your small eyes, your pointy chin, your tiny boobs, your full chest, your ivory or ebony skin (or every color in between) - the stuff about you that makes you well...you. And I hope you've learned a heck of a lot from watching. I have an inkling you have. May your photos (and selfies) be forever fierce. May you always find your light. And may you werk hallways like runways. Always remember, you are beautiful & BOOTYful. And please, keep on Smizing each and every day for TyTy. Fierce & Love, 💛Tyra
So, who do you think will be the winner of the very last ANTM season? The contestants left in the mix are Lacey Rogers, 18, of Arkansas; Mamé Adjei, 23, of Maryland; Mikey Heverly, 26, of Florida; and Nyle DiMarco, 25, Washington, D.C. In part one of the finale, fans were left wondering which girl and which guy would be cut, leaving two to enter the grand finale. However, in spoiler pics from the final episode, we see all four of them involved. Contestant Nyle, who is deaf, has been a fan-favorite this season and he's the guy we hope wins it all this season.
