ANTM Cycle 19: Meet The Cast & Week One Photo Shoot

The Cycle 19 premiere of “America’s Next Top Model” is still months away, but thanks to a new rule change, we get an advanced look. Not only do we see the 13 girls vying for the ANTM crown, but we are also treated to an advanced look at their first official photo shoot. After years of wishing for it, viewers finally have a say in who gets eliminated each week. Exactly how much viewer votes weigh in on the final decision remains to be seen. We all know the powers-that-be have final say, but at least we can give our two cents… even if they fall on deaf ears.

For the first photo shoot of the college edition, the girls pose as game trophies. It’s all about smizing and catching the light for this shoot. Broken-down doll poses won’t work here. Typically, I have a sense of what Tyra Banks, Nigel Barker and Jay Manuel are all looking for. But with Barker and Manuel out, trying to predict what newcomers Rob Evans and Tommy Wujek will say is nearly impossible. That said, I have a pretty good idea of what Kelly Cutrone looks for. I have, after all, watched her on “Kell on Earth“, “The Hills” and “The City“.

It looks as if the producers are releasing the best photos of each girl every week. I’m thinking each girl, whether eliminated or not, will participate at every photo shoot. Otherwise, the results of the college cycle will be spoiled months before the premiere date. How else could they do it? Without further ado, check out the new crop of ladies who will undoubtedly vie for a CoverGirl contract and “career-making” prizes. Be sure to scroll til the end to see which girls I liked the most.

Without having seen what Tyra Banks has in store for them with regards to Ty-Overs or Shake-Overs, I’m basing my favorites simply on the above pictures. My early frontrunners are Allyssa, Brittany, Destiny, Jessie, Kristin, Maria and Natasia. My prediction for week one FCO is Kristin or Jessie. How about you? Who are your early favorites? Sound off below.

    I like Victoria the best. She goes to that fake school, Liberty University, which cause some dramaz~ Not bad. All the girls I liked got in.

    Hey did you hear they added a new judge? His twitter name is @bryanboy

  • mark

    I have to agree with Crystal, Victoria is giving androgynous/high fashion look. imho but I also like kristin, I feel that she has the similar look as molly. she can be commercial and editorial.

  • Sasha

    From 30, I picked 10…I only got Leila.

    Kinda glad my taste is so different from Tyra. ^^

  • Andy

    Leila definitely she has that high fashion look. The rest of them look like pedestrians.

  • Roscoe

    Laura is the best looker out of them all, a real stunner who will go far…… for Laura….

  • Steve-O

    Wonder if there is going to be any real university versus fake university drama….think Tyra is setting this up for a class war.

  • MicheH

    Laura is the only girl I can actually see get into the house,
    Let alone win the competition. Anyone would be crazy not to vote for her! You got this, Girly!

  • Rinni

    Laura goes to Paul Smiths? Thats why she rocked the first shoot. Its a forestry school. Theres like… Real game heads in the library and student union.
