'Top Model' Unveils Its Lucky 13

(Posted August 19, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES ( They come from Harlem and Los Angeles, and also Boonville, Mo., and Dexter, Mich. They're students and retail clerks, and one of them manages a Dairy Queen. And not one of them will have to face Janice Dickinson.

They are the 13 finalists for the fifth edition of "America's Next Top Model," which premieres on UPN Wednesday, Sept. 21. Announcing the finalists now maybe takes some of the suspense out of the two-hour premiere, but the network has also promised an elimination in the first episode.

The show will be based in Los Angeles again this season, but instead of the funky downtown loft the models shared in the previous installment, the finalists will be living in a mansion in Bel-Air. They'll also be facing a revamped judging panel, with 1960s fashion icon Twiggy and runway expert "Miss" J. Alexander taking the places of Dickinson and Nole Marin. Host Tyra Banks and striped-shirt-favoring photographer Nigel Barker remain on the panel.

And before Tyra can repeat it every week, let us be the first to say that the "Top Model" winner will receive a prize package that includes management by Ford Models, a contract with Cover Girl and a fashion spread in Elle. The winner will also appear on the cover of ELLEgirl with Banks.
