If you were a fan of America’s Next Top Model during its early seasons, then you’re in for a treat! The show, which spanned over 24 cycles, asked one of life’s biggest questions: “You wanna be on top?” With each cycle, viewers were treated to a makeover episode that only became more extravagant and over-the-top as the show continued to draw in viewers.
In this article, we’re focusing on the early days of the show, specifically seasons 1-16. These were simpler times, when the show’s host, Tyra Banks, was known for delivering inspirational quotes such as, “modeling is being a ho, but making fashion.” Makeovers were also an important aspect of each cycle. However, while some of the makeovers were inspiring, others were downright bizarre, like when they tried to get one contestant to close the gap in her front teeth, only to ask another woman to widen her teeth gap four years later! Nonetheless, everyone on the show went through dramatic transformations that helped them become supermodels.
