The winner was 20-year-old Adrianne Curry from Joliet, Illinois.
Has been a Deal or No Deal girl, appeared in commercials for brands like Nike and AT&T, and hosted for TV Guide Channel, E! Appeared in, The Break-Up, The Lake House, and Iron Man 2. Was married to Andrew Stern (2010-2014) when he committed suicide.
This was the only season to feature a cast of only 10 contestants, later cycles at having at least 12 contestants competing for the title.
The judges for this cycle were: Tyra Banks, Janice Dickinson, Kimora Lee Simmons and Beau Quillian.
After the auditions however, Tyra revealed that she and the producers only could agree on eight.
The eight contestants selected arrived in New York City and were escorted to the loft apartment in the Flatotel.
They also remarked that Shannon looked much better in her pictures than in front of the panel, and perhaps she has tanned too much.
Finally, the judges decide to eliminate Tessa, because even though she had a strong high fashion look, they thought that she lacked the personality to be a model.
Giselle irritated her roommates because she overacted during it, while both Robin and Ebony were dissatisfied with the way their hair was handled.
After a lesson on how to achieve a clean look, the reward challenge involved doing the best job picking out and putting on makeup, which Elyse won, and got to meet some famous fashion people, including Max Tucci.
The day after the shoot, Adrianne was rushed to the hospital with severe food poisoning, and she later forced her way out of the hospital and back to the competition so as not to be automatically eliminated, impressing the judges.
At panel, Ebony was criticized for the texture of her skin, and Nicole was ousted as she was deemed not committed enough to the competition.
When Ebony decided not tell them about the Tyra Mail which arrived while they were out, the Christians went down to the hotel's lobby and told the other girls about the Tyra Mail.
