america's next top model cycle 5 ANTM winner Nicole photo portfolio
One of my favorite shows, America's Next Top Model 5 winner was selected on a live season 5 finale on December 8th, 2005. Tyra Banks, in the final ANTM show of the season, first narrowed down the list of the contestants from 3 to 2. Take a look at Season 5 Photoshoot Pictures.
Girls competed for the 2 finalist spots by creating a ad campaign for Cover Girl, which consisted of a TV commercial, and a magazine ad (Tyra and Nicole Elle Girl cover). Following the selection of the 2 finalists, the two girls went head to head in a Gharani Strok fashion show runway. Previous season winner of the Americas Next Top Model, Eva, was the first one to walk out on the runway, and she did a great job. Nik and Nicole then modeled 3 outfits each, also doing a great job.

America's Next Top Model Season 5
Nik's TV commercial was the best, and her magazine ad was judged very well as well. Bre's TV ad was OK, and her picture was judged poor, because of a tightness of her lip, which Cover Girl likes to be relaxed. Nicole's TV commercial was very good, and her magazine ad was judged the best. During the final judgment, while pointing out that both girls did an amazing job,
Tyra Banks chose Nicole as the winner of America's Next Top Model! Nicole comes from Grand Forks, North Dakota, and she's only 19 years old. After deliberations, the judges decided that the 2 top finalists for America's Next Top Model were: Nik and Nicole!
