The competition gets fierce for the tenth cycle of America's Next Top Model, as the 14 finalists fight to turn their dreams of becoming a top model into reality.
This season, an incredible transformation takes place as the finalists face tougher challenges and live the high life participating in glamorous photo shoots all while living under one roof in a posh New York mansion.
During this cycle, the 14 participants live together and ferociously vie for the grand prize, competing in a highly accelerated modeling boot camp.
The participants' abilities are tested each week as they strive to master the runway, fashion photo shoots, perfect publicity skills and learn the business aspects of becoming a supermodel, all under 24-hour-a-day surveillance of the America's Next Top Model cameras.
Throughout the season, supermodel Tyra Banks, art director of photo shoots Jay Manuel, and runway guru J. Alexander mentor the participants.
Banks leads the panel of America's Next Top Model judges, comprised of leading fashion industry experts, including photographer Nigel Barker, runway expert J. Alexander and new to the team this season Czechoslovakian model and actress, who closely evaluate the progress of the models to narrow the field each week.
In addition, special guest judges appear to critique within his or her area of expertise.
The winner of Season 10 will be managed by Elite Model Management. She also receives a $100,000 contract with cosmetics giant CoverGirl and a billboard in Times Square with her CoverGirl ad. Finally, the winner will appear on the cover and six-page fashion spread in Seventeen magazine.
