America's Next Top Model

television series

America's Next Top Model (2003–18) is an American reality television show created and hosted by Tyra Banks in which several young women (regularly called "girls" on the show) compete to win a modeling contract. Each "cycle" of the show constitutes roughly half of a regular U.S. TV season (9–14 episodes).


Cycle 1Edit

Originally aired May 20 – July 8, 2003.

The Girl Who Wants It So Bad [1.1]Edit

Janice: America's Next Top Model is not a plus-sized model!

Douglas Bizzaro: [about Shannon] I can tell she tans a lot, and I can tell her skin on her face is starting to get a little leathery.

Tyra Banks: What I'm looking for is a star. That's all I'm looking for.

Tessa Carlson: [on being eliminated first in the competition] I tried, and you can't do any better than that. And everything happens for a reason, right?

Robin Manning: [on the prospect of getting a Brazilian bikini wax] There's only two people that's been down there: myself and my gynecologist—and I give him crap.

Elyse: I really think I did poorly. I was rarely incapable of doing anything. Eliminate me. Do it!

The Girl Who Is Here to Win, Not Make Friends [1.2]Edit

J. Alexander: My motto is, walk like it's for sale and the rent is due tonight.

Elyse: [about Ebony] Her jaw was clenched. She didn't say a word to anybody—for once.

Elyse: [in the confessional] I do not have the will to walk on the catwalk like I give a damn! ... But I don't want to be model. I don't. I can't. It is so—augh! It's so irrelevant. Eliminate me. Do it!

Elyse: I am a militant atheist, and Robin actually showed me this Bible verse. [reading from the Bible at the request of Robin] "Foolish is the man who says there is no God..." That was a really forward thing to do. I don't believe in God, and it was offensive.

Elyse: [in the confessional] Robin, how fucking dare you show me that "foolish is the atheist" Bible verse this morning, and ask me "what do i think of it?" What the fuck am I supposed to think of it? And you know what I think of you? Foolish is the woman who believes that goddamn tripe. Giselle, you fucking worthless cunt. You're so wasteful, bitchy, stupid—you're worthless. Your parents must be ashamed of you. Adrianne, stop interrupting me. Stop quoting Jay and Silent Bob right next to my ear. I've had enough of you. I don't want to hear the same stories over and over. Jay, you offended me today. I know medical school is hard work. How could I possibly not be aware of that? And secondly, how dare you imply that I'm uppity because I want to be a life saver and you don't? It takes a fucking ass to cover every seat, you shit slice. What else? Katie, I don't believe a word that comes out of your mouth. You're the most insincere person I've ever met. God damn it. Let me fucking die. You bitches.

Elyse: [in the confessional] Robin sort of, calmed everyone down by...making us all say a prayer.
Robin: People are taking the word, "competitiveness", and have turned this definition around, Lord. And Lord, I ask that you remove any negative thing...that is...anything that is not like you, that is not of you. And Lord, only one person can win, and the awesome thing about it is that you already know who that person is. Lord, give us a clean spirit, Lord. Pure and whole, Jesus. Clear our minds, Lord.
Elyse: [in the confessional] I was really emotional during the prayer because...I was so uncomfortable with the entire situation.
Robin: And don't let us...look to be vindictive and catty and...self-righteous, and all those other things that are of demonic presence. And Lord, you don't have to believe in order to know's just about being a good person, Lord. And I know that's not fashionable, being a good person. And behind Satan, Jesus. Amen.

Ebony: Robin, this is not a Bible study program. This is not a... sorority. I'm sorry, this is a model competition.
Giselle: Elyse, I love her, but her dream is to become a doctor. It's like, well, why are you here? That really, really pisses me off.

Katie: I love runway. It's like a whole different way to express yourself. Some girls don't have it naturally. I think that I've got a natural walk.

Elyse: [on Robin] That prayer was so inappropriate.

The Girl Who Gets Rushed to the Emergency Room [1.3]Edit

Jay Manuel: The make-up artist is your last front to the world, so you never want to piss them off, because they'll mess you up.

John Ward: [after photographing the contestants] I think if I was going to book a girl today based on where they are right now, I would probably pick Adrianne. She's very beautiful, she has a good time, I think she'd be fun to work with.

Jay: [referring to Robin] If you didn't want to be in the game, you might as well go home and just be Miss Soymilk, or whatever.

Robin: I look like an albino prostitute.
Elyse: I completely didn't understand Robin's assertion that her haircut made her look like a prostitute, but then again, I'm not familiar with...prostitute trends.

Ebony: It is very upsetting to an African American woman to walk into a salon and have the person do her hair incorrectly! It is very inappropriate!

Adrianne: Robin was very scared to take her old weave out, because she wanted everybody to think it was natural, but it wasn't.

The Girl Who Drives Everyone Crazy [1.4]Edit

Adrianne Curry: [About when Giselle is going to confront Ebony] What is she going to tell her?
Elyse Sewell: I don't know but I hope I'm there for it.

Tyra Banks: [to Ebony] You are beautiful, your smile is breathtaking, but you have anger that makes you push yourself too hard, to the point where you lose focus and become difficult to work with.

Elyse: [about her commercial] It was embarrassing. Can't wait to see that and laugh at it.

Adrianne: [about Ka, Ebony's girlfriend] I have so many gay friends, I don't care. She was really, really cool and she really loves her girlfriend.

Robin Manning: Ebony is a lesbian, and I found this offensive. I cannot pass judgment on her, but I just know that some people who claim to love the Lord and are Christian are not always, you know, cut the right way.

Elyse: Ebony-esque freak out...

Elyse: Everybody gets together and shakes their donk-donk for a prize. I don't think I'm going to participate in that.

The Girl Who Everyone Thinks is Killing Herself [1.5]Edit

Giselle: Britney Spears did Star Search and she lost, and look at where she's at now. I don't consider myself a loser.

Janice: [About Elyse] She looks like a gazelle from the American Ballet Theatre. I love this photograph.

Adrianne: I really missed my mom, and it kicks ass to have her here...a lot of ass!

Christine: [About Adrianne] I gave birth to such a beautiful human being.

Elyse: I'm not willing to alienate Giselle, because she's the only one with a straightening iron.

Adrianne: [About Elyse] She's killing herself. There's no other way to put it. This girl is killing herself.

Elyse: Robin, you're an idiot, and frankly, you're starting to act like a bitch too.

Adrianne: Giselle found out that pretending to be so negative about yourself and so insecure is a great way to fish for compliments.

Giselle: I need to build some freakin' confidence. How do I do that?
Elyse: You get out of puberty.

Janice: [About Kesse's photo] This looks like she escaped from a mental institution. This is the worst photograph I've ever seen! You look deranged! Your arms look amputeed [sic], your legs look amputeed [sic], and it looks like you have a penis! I'm sorry.

The Girl Who Deals With A Pervert [1.6]Edit

Adrianne: There was this man, who started brushing my leg like there was something on my knee, so I was thinking "Oh, there might be something on my knee." Then he proceeded to try to shove his hand up my skirt towards my crotch. I was very upset. I was right by the agency, but I just couldn't go in at all.

Tyra: [To Elyse] You were the one girl who took Paris by storm.

Photographer Michel Haddi: [About Elyse] She was a little fawn out of a Walt Disney movie.

Shannon: [About masturbating] I didn't know we could do it to ourselves.

Adrianne: [About Shannon] I think she's just so crazy, because she's never done anything. She's never touched herself, she's never watched a porn, she's never done anything.

Adrianne: This place is the most beautiful place in the world. New York was the most beautiful place in the world last week, but this week it's Paris.

Shannon: Please, Lord, send me somebody sometime.

Shannon: Oh, my word!

The Girls Who Get Really Naked [1.7]Edit

Adrianne: [about Robin] She doesn't seem very Christ-like to me. In fact, I think she secretly worships the devil.

Tyra: Human is beautiful; perfect is boring.

Jay: [About Robin] She opened up the drape, and she was just in a panty, no bra, and was like, shaking her boobs at me. What she didn't know was Tyra was standing right next to me, around the corner.

Tyra: [To Robin] I don't understand how you can say no to something like that, but then, in the dressing room, when you think no one is looking...I saw you open the dressing room at the couture house, and you were nude, and you shook your chest at Jay...You're shaking your chest, jiggle, shimmy, I saw them go round and round and up and down...

Beau: [To Shannon] Do you have any idea what it's like backstage at a fashion show?... Because you've got 30 girls that have to just strip completely naked.

Tyra: [To Elyse] I think you look so sexy, and your booty looks kind of big and juicy. That's great!

Adrianne: [About Robin] If there really is this big wonderful man in the sky, then he's gonna whup her ass when she gets up there.

Adrianne: [About Robin] I didn't want to listen to what that bitch had to say. She's psychotic.

Adrianne: I do believe in God...I'm just not psychotic about it.

The Girl Who Becomes America's Next Top Model [1.9]Edit

Adrianne Curry: Tomorrow we fight to the death!

Janice Dickinson: [At the Baby Phat fashion show] Shannon was dope last night...

Beau: You can tell Adrianne's lived a little more. There's something cooking behind Adrianne's eyes.

Tyra: Hopefully it was fierce. Hopefully it was perfect. And if it wasn't, then the whole room, and the whole world, just saw you screw up.

Tyra: You should know your real measurements and your fake measurements.

Adrianne: [About Elyse] She hates everything we do, yet she's the best at it.

Adrianne: I don't know what to feel. I feel I love Janice Dickinson.
Janice: Well, I didn't vote for you.

Adrianne Curry: I'm gonna have a good life now. My family's gonna have a good life now. A lot is going to change, and it kicks so much ass.

Cycle 2Edit

Originally aired January 13 – May 11, 2004.

The Girl Who Overslept [2.1]Edit

Jenascia: I don't know why they didn't wake me up this morning, but if this doesn't get me eliminated, it's on. It's so fucking on!

Camille: Maybe I'm just a little more, um, educated than some of these girls.

J. Alexander: Okay girls, so that was your first fashion experience, and personally I think you all sucked.

Jenascia: I'm really not that nice of a person, I don't know what's come over me.

J. Alexander: Walk like it's for sale and the rent is due tonight!

Sara: I can tell that Camille is going to be somebody that causes a lot of problems. I think she just really believes that she's…the stuff.

Bethany: I have a lot more talent than the boobs.

Anna: I do not regret any decisions that I made here, That I've got knocked out and knocked down it hurts for a few moments, But I'm stronger now and you know I can get back up and still keep going. I'm excited to go back and see my son and my husband.

The Girl Has a Temper [2.2]Edit

Bethany: I have more talent then most of these girls.

J. Alexander: [To Xiomara] Girl, you walk like you're on crack. Your eyes are so bugged out of your head like something just scared the hell out of you.

Carmen Marc Valvo: [To Yoanna] If you came in for a casting, and you looked the way that you look, I probably wouldn't even ask you to put on a dress. Usually ugly women put on a lot of makeup.

Camille: Don't play me. You have a better chance playing Lotto.

J. Alexander: [To Yoanna] Your walk was as useless as a flashlight with no batteries in the dark.

J. Alexander: [To Camille] Oh! Black girls always have to give that something extra. I ain't mad at chu though!

Yoanna: Camille is the most exhausting experience I've ever encountered.

Yoanna: [To Camille] negative in this house, the energy is driving me crazy! It's like we have to open the windows and... Wait! Just... I'm not finished! Just wait! Because you know why it's just so built up!

The Girl Who Can Cry at the Drop of a Hat [2.3]Edit

Shandi: Everything's come together and I feel so pretty... right now.

Xiomara: [About Camille] Her butt is taking up the whole counter space!

Catie: This is a once in a lifetime thing, I am not gonna care what they do to my hair.

Sara: I see a lot of unattractive models and a lot of girls that they put magazines, and I'm just like, 'Why the hell do they put these girls in this magazine?' But it's because it draws people to them.

Tyra: [To Catie] You are a girl, you still have titties and a booty.

Heather: One man's trash is another man's treasure, I'm trash here and I'll guess I'll go be a treasure somewhere else.

The Girl Who Needs Six Months of Modeling School [2.4]Edit

Jenascia: This house is totally gonna suck without me, now I'm gonna go back to slinging chicken wings at Hooters and back to my friends and being the happy person that I am.

Photographer: April is that unique find that comes along every now and again.

Adrianne: That's what you deal with in the real world, these bitches don't care.

Simon Doonan: [To Catie] I think there's a little bit too much hooker style going on... Go down where the hookers hang out by the docks, see what they're wearing, and avoid it.

Jenascia: I'm short and I don't care. Look how short I am!

The Girl is a Visual Orgasm [2.5]Edit

Eric: [To Yoanna] Your picture looks a bit like an adult ultrasound.

Nolé Marin: [to Mercedes] You are a visual orgasm.

Pyschic Suzannah Galland: [To Camille] I don't care if you punch me, but I'm going to level with you. You put people off.

Camille: [Reading the list of what the other girls think of her] Superior, relentless, headstrong, defiant, outspoken, cunning, aggressive, opinionated, demanding and single-minded.

April: I haven't been connected with my Japanese heritage and I'm not going to pretend I have. I'm not going to market myself to just Asian girls.

Nolé Marin: April was like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The Matrix... she was FABULOUS!

Nolé Marin: [About Shandi] She looked petrified... just like a drowning chicken.

Nolé Marin: [About Xiomara] Absolutely gorgeous girl, but underwater she looked like a walrus wearing chiffon. It was a disaster from start to finish.

Janice: I was offended that she called me a bitch. I am a member of the PTA.

The Girl Whose Lips Puffed Up [2.6]Edit

Tasha Smith-Arquese: [To Camille] Come on, you're sucking right now!

Eric: She's kinda the girl next door, but I think America's Next Top Model has to be like, the girl way over there.
Tyra: Down the street and around the corner!
Eric: EX-actly.

Jay Manuel: Talk tough superhero, not tough Bronx.
Mercedes:Well, I'm from Jersey!

Mercedes: [About Camille] Where the hell did the Cuban come from? I'm more Cuban than her, Honey, and I'm not even Latin!

Tasha Smith-Arquese: [To Camille] I just feel like you're still on the surface. There's stuff inside your heart that you just refuse to let out... You just want to have this perfect mask on. God bless you in your career, but you're just boring.

Mercedes: [About April] I love her but she's going to die of a heart attack before she hits 27 because she puts so much stress on the little things and doesn't listen to the positive things.

Janice: [About Catie] She looks like a child prostitute in this picture.

Janice: Convince me that you are funny, just once.

The Girl is Dripping with Hypocrisy [2.7]Edit

April: The competition is not just about winning... it's honestly something that my heart really desires.

Shandi: [About her boyfriend] Going to the movies, that's like our secret thing that we shared, and it really hurt when he said that.

Tony Michaels: [About Shandi] You don't look at her and think ‘top model' off the bat, but by the second glance you see, wow, she's got it.

Yoanna: I think it's sad being away from your own home and not having a cake, and plus, I wanted some cake too!

The Girl Goes to Milan [2.8]Edit

Camille: This is my signature walk and this is the walk that's gonna make me famous.

Tyra: [Imitating Camille] Look, bitch, I was chosen out of a million people, I don't know what your problem is.

Jay: We should do a word count of how many times Nole says fabulous in a day.

Shandi: [About Liliana Rolando, casting director] She's a meany and she is a bad woman and I don't like her!

Mercedes: My little Italian man, he did not speak that much English, but other than that, I'm having fun.

Janice: [About April's photograph] She looks like the batteries died in her vibrator.

The Girl Who is Afraid of Snakes [2.9]Edit

Jay: [About Heather's photo] She looks like a porno star.
Janice: No, she does not!
Jay: Yes... she does.
Janice: So do you!
Jay: We're talking Silicone Valley on the other end of the table.

Xiomara: Of course I want to stay here, I don't want to go. I want to stay but if I'm not what someone wants, I'm cool with that. Like I'm not going to sit here and beat myself up because I'm not what someone wants.

Tyra: Your moms have that responsbility to keep you sane because this business is insane.

Janice: If a photographer offered you guaranteed fame if you slept with him for a cover of a magazine or a makeup campaign, what would you do?
April: Is he attractive?

Sara: [Betting Heather to run around the house naked] I dare you... I swear to God I'll give you $5 dollars if you do it.

Jenascia: You see how when I'm upset and can still be funny? You see how I do that? I'm fucking great!

J. Alexander: [To Jenascia] There's a boy somewhere inside of you, you gotta beat him outta you.

The Girl Who Cheated [2.10]Edit

Mercedes: Modeling is art, but I wasn't ready for this type of art. Especially with April!

April: DING! Hold on a minute Shandi, you've got a boyfriend!

April: These girls, myself included, have been like monkeys in a cage, and you drop big bananas inside, of course they're going to tear the peels off.

The Girl Who Is America's Next Top Model [2.11]Edit

Mercedes: Yoanna is a great person, I've shared a lot with her but if Yoanna wins, I'm gonna pull her hair out and yell, 'It wasn't meant to be!'

Shandi: I've grown into a person I like and appreciate more.

Janice: [To Mercedes] Never touch your face, girl, or I will come after you. You are beautiful!

DSquared: A girl who hangs up their own clothes is better loved. I hate those bitches that just throw them on the floor!

Mercedes: Oh Bitch, you ain't go gonna go nowhere! [pause] Sorry!

The Runway Ahead [2.12]Edit

April: I'm a mutt, loud and proud.

Jenascia: [To Hooters customers] Do you guys need anything? Good, because I didn't want to get it anyways!

Shandi: When I get home, I won't feel so lost. I won't feel so insecure.

Anna: Their coochie was showing...
Jermaine: Eww, baby you can't say that on television!

Catie: [During preliminaries] If they said, "Catie, to make it you're going to have to shave your head", my hair's gone!

April: I like the feeling I get when I'm creating art with my body.

Cycle 3Edit

Originally aired September 22 – December 15, 2004.

The Girl With the Secret [3.1]Edit

Amanda: I'm legally blind. And I'm going to be about 30 when I go completely blind. It's a disease called retinitis pigmentosa, and I just wanted ya'll to know I will always see your face. Please don't cry, I've had 10 years to get used to this. I've seen my son smile and that's all I ever wanted.

Amanda: My child is so wonderful, he will blossom. It's like a rose growing through a concrete crack.

J. Alexander: [About Toccara's breasts] Baby when she released those puppies, they were full grown dogs.

Toccara: I love my skin and I'm workin' it. I'm hittin 200 in the butt, what?

Norelle: I'm the only one with braces. I'm the only one with bling-bling on my grill, ok?

Cassie: I might look like the All-American girl, but I don't have the All-American job because I'm a stripper.
J. Alexander: That's the All-American job to me!

Tyra: And I have some nicknames for them. Jay Manuel is Mr. Jay and J. Alexander is Mrs. Jay.

Eva: Everyone has their bathing suit on. Why not get in the water instead of standing next to it, ya dumbasses!

The Girl Who is Co-Dependent [3.2]Edit

Janice: [To Toccara] Oh, I dunno. You might be giving these skinny little bitches a run for their money.

Tyra: [To Amanda] You continue to raise your eyebrow. You know, the Zoolander.
Janice: I used to be able to do it, but I have so much botox in my face I can't really do it anymore.

Janice: [About Kelle] The hand coming through your legs looks like something that is on a man.

Tyra: Nolé is a very prominent fashion editor and a stylist. And of course, we can't forget...
Nolé Marin: Empress Mini, the legendary girl herself.

Amanda: It's really easy for somebody to pass a judgement on something without knowing all the information.

Toccara: Ann, big deal, tough tittie!

Kelle: Tyra had arranged a huge SUV limo to pick us up which is you know, we're all big pimpin'.

Jay Manuel: OK, Norelle, that one feels a little like you're taking a dump.

J. Alexander: [To Kristi] It looks like you got gas baby, like you gotta fart.

Eva: Kelle, she's just so white-washed it's not even funny.

The Girl Everyone Thinks is a Backstabber [3.3]Edit

Toccara: You can shave my head off bald and I'll still walk around here like I'm a goddess.

Amanda: The girls are starting to feel intimidated by me and its really making me feel good as hell.

Yaya: Julie cracks me up. It's nice to see someone proud of where they come from.

Tyra: You guys look like the pretty girls walking down the street. Maybe she can model but ehh...

Danilo: [To Amanda] How does it feel waking up with it? Does it feel possessed by the previous owner?

Amanda: What I did to Cassie was bring her secret out in the open. It wasn't my place to do it and now I'm the evil person, and everyone thinks I'm a backstabber.

Nicole: I'm excited actually for eliminations. I'm going, 'Let's get some of these bitches outta here!

Nolé Marin: Where'd you come from, baby?
Amanda: Your dreams.

The Girl Who Sets a Trap [3.4]Edit

Jay Manuel: Norelle was trying to show me how gorgeous her boobs were, which they are! She's got gorgeous boobs, but that doesn't mean she's gonna be America's Next Top Model.

Eva: Have you seen Ann's biceps? Ann will beat your ass, Jenn.

Kelle: Does anyone have a pair of sunglasses? [repeated line]

Ann: Don't ever touch me again or you'll see you'll get knocked out.
Jennipher: Oh, I'd like to see it.

Amanda: What's a 10 dollar bill to catch a bitch, hmm?

Amanda: [Singing] I'm missing 100 dollars and my laundry's gone. Cuz of a certain bitch, uh, certain bitch, certain bitch.

Norelle: My biggest dream, Heatherette fashion show. My worst nightmare: falling. All in the same night!

Eva: Toccara actually exposes to me that she thought she was gonna win because she got a lot of applause. You got applause because your titties are out girl.

J. Alexander: Their show is usually the hottest ticket in town during New York Fashion week. It's so hot that I don't get a ticket.

J. Alexander: It's really funny because it's about to fall but you're not lettin' it happen.
Eva: It's not gonna fall.

Yoanna: So I know what you guys are going through, but it's worth it. It's such a short time, and you're so young and you'll sleep when you're dead, so...

Toccara: Ms J. comes down and she has her little apple, she's just fabulous.

J. Alexander: You walk like you're chewin' gum between your legs.

Eva: First of all, I didn't even know you were a bitch!

Kelle: I look like a platypus!

The Girl Who Cries When She Looks in the Mirror [3.5]Edit

Jay Manuel: Kelle just told me that you won the posing competition, which I still find hard to believe, but alright, work it out girl!

Norelle: I look like one of those dolls that's like, so pretty but if you look at it at night, you'd be running out of the room screaming. I loved it.

Simon Doonan: Jennipher, she's a little dull, slash very dull.

Simon Doonan: You've gotta look alluring, you've gotta look interesting, but you can't look cheap and slutty.

Kelle: The past 3 panels, I've had probably the worst photos in the group. I've had a penis, I've been a deer in the headlights in the middle of a cemetery, I've been a platypus that's just came from a dentist...!

Janice: [To Ann] Bring motion to those stringy thingies!

Toccara: I was sweatin' soo hard...I don't think I like yoga.

The Girl Who Mutilated the Precious Brownies [3.6]Edit

Jay Manuel: Ten people will say, 'Don't do this. Don't do this.' You know what you're going to end up with? Nothing.

Eva: [about Yaya's facial prize for winning the challenge] The person that needed the facial got the facial.

Eva: Cassie is the biggest punk I have ever met.

Yaya: Someone had the audicity to mutilate her precious brownies.

Amanda: It's like living with eight other beautiful...pigs.

Kelle: Daddy, I don't have intensity in my eyes.

Yaya: Some people think it's funny to kill people. That doesn't make it funny.

The Girl Who Forgot Her Shoes [3.7]Edit

Nigel: Toccara, there's just something about her. She's interesting.
Janice: Yeah, a lot of flesh!

Janice: Eva's still short.
Nigel: Perhaps she'll grow by next week?

Toccara: I wanna know why all the girls were so nice lookin', and here I am looking like I work at Home Depot.

Cassie: [About Jay in drag] This woman walks out, I thought, this is a really ugly woman.

Cassie: I don't want to be here anymore, but I don't want to be known as the girl who quit.

Norelle: I may not be good enough now, but I'll be good enough someday.
Norelle's Mom: You're good enough now.

Toccara: I'm very happy for Yaya, and at the same time, I was getting nervous and scared because you don't see a lot of negroes in high fashion.

Marc Bouwer: [To Amanda] Alright, let's try to walk without tripping this time!

The Girl Who Is Panic Stricken [3.8]Edit

Yaya: Maybe there's a wall, you know, with nine blocks that spell out 'competition'.

Tyra: Toccara, I knew from day one that you wanted this and was f-a-b-o
Toccara: I am fabulous and I want this.

Toccara: I'm proud of myself. I'm the largest girl to get here and I made it this far. Someone has to start to break the barrier, so hopefully the next plus size girl that comes along, she makes it a little bit further. It's gonna take time, it doesn't happen over night. But I'm just grateful that maybe I made a path for someone else.

Tyra: Yaya, it was like you were on this pedestal and this hat smelt like dookie!

Tyra: [To Yaya] You want your outfit to be, 'Look at me' and this outfit is 'Look over there'.

Nolé Marin: [To Yaya] You're I feel... half African, half cowgirl. Looks like you're about to ride a giraffe.

Eva: I was petrified of this spider.
Janice: Try posing on a live crocodile honey.

Eva: You see this face? This is a confused face!

Sarah Pyper: Who's the most annoying girl in the group?
Eva: Everyone's equally annoying!

Eva: Everyone freakin' says to me that I'm a diva! So how do I not be a diva?

The Girls Meet Taye Diggs [3.9]Edit

Tyra: [To Yaya] Now we need you to eat the product because I've never heard of a girl having a commercial and not tasting the product.
Janice: Eat! Eat! Eat!

Norelle: The first thing we saw was a hospital bed. Prepare to die? I'm sorry, but I am not a good die-er.

Tyra: [To Yaya] I suggest you go to the nearest bakery in Japan and order up the biggest slice of humble pie.

Nolé Marin: [About Eva] In your commercial, she was an absolute Tokyo disaster.
Tyra: She was a typhoon!
Nolé Marin: She was a typhoon, a buffoon, she was a cocoa puff mess.

Amanda: I just look like a pair of ears on an onion.

Yaya: There's one person eliminated every single time. And that one person should not be me. And if it is, I need to have a talk with the judges.

Norelle: I can barely speak English, and you want me to speak Japanese?

Norelle: I don't know if they're called Japanese people if they are from Tokyo, or Tokyians?

Taye: Julia? Julia? That's a cruel trick. That's a cruel trick, Julia.

Taye: You died in your favourite shoes.

Nicole: The first thing I saw was not appropriate, so I had to just say I didn't see anything!

The Girl Who Goes Ballistic [3.10]Edit

Jessie, Yaya's sister: [On phone with Yaya, who is crying] Regardless of what people think about you, continue to bless people with your compassion and your wisdom. They have the blessing of being with you.
Eva: And I have all that fucking tension and animosity...
Yaya: Sorry, one second. I CAN'T HEAR, I'M ON THE PHONE!
Norelle: [after brief pause] ... go on.

Norelle: [To Ann and Eva] Hopefully, one of us makes it to number one. And hopefully, it's us three!

Yaya: Don't exoticize me!

Norelle: Holy crap, Toccara. Your boobs are as big as my head.

Toccara: [About Amanda] Her eyes are too blue, and her hair is's scary. I mean, I don't want to be around her at nighttime when she's walking down the hallway!

Ann: Taye Diggs wants me. [laughs]
Eva: Taye Diggs is so married.
Ann: He's married?
Eva: So married.
Ann: To who?
Eva: To his wife!

Tyra: Now 5 girls remain. Eva, the controversial diva. Ann, the All-American athlete. Yaya, the wordly Ivy League graduate. Amanda, the free-spirited mom who's going blind. And Norelle, the Orange County Cinderella. Don't miss out on the drama as we find out who will be America's Next Top Model!

The Girl The Lionesses Are Hunting [3.11]Edit

Norelle: Opening a sliding door in Japan seriously takes five minutes.

Amanda: With my blindness I appreciate every sunrise, butterfly, the dew drop on a petal.

Norelle: Eva had said that she hoped I did bad so I would go home and then Eva was like, "Oh yeah? Ann, well you think Norelle's ugly and fat!"
Tyra: Well, Norelle, you're one of the top 5. And you have to realize that's what makes beauty interesting, is when it's debatable. Do you know what I mean? There's so many people that say, 'Oh Tyra Banks is beautiful.' And there's so many people that say, 'Tyra Banks has a big ass forehead and I think shes ugly!' One thing you need to realize is everybody talks about everybody.

Eva: I think Ann knows I've been nothing but a friend to her. So for her to bring that situation on the table, without trying to understand me or try to clear it up, is like 'Woah. That' very whack right now homie. Like, you are so whack'.

Norelle: I was so confused. Pink Positive, what's going on? Are we getting a divorce?

Amanda: When the lionesses are hunting in a pack, when there's a flaw, you see it. And everybody goes for it.

Amanda: Yaya has won like, 5 times? More power to her, 'cause I'm sharing in the fruits of her labor.

Norelle: Oh my god! I don't understand Japanese food. I do not eat Japanese food. If I do, I eat like... Panda Express?

Norelle: [about a Japanese tea ceremony] Uhh! There is so much detail. You think have tea is going to your friend's house, have time for tea? Woo... It's not. It's so hard.

Amanda: I feel like a lot of people in the house don't necessarily want to be around Eva. The house has to have a target. That's just mob mentality and human nature and competition.

The Girl Who Didn't Hug Goodbye [3.12]Edit

Yaya: I did the girls a favor because my nonpresence there gave someone else a chance to win.

Ann: We're still Ann and Eva even though we've had some marriage problems.

Jay Manuel: [To Ann] You're lucky you're still in this competition. You barely got a photograph.

Amanda: It's good to have family around, even if it's not your own.

Ann: [About Japanese street fashion] When I first saw it, I was kinda like, Ok, where was your mirror this morning?

Amanda: When you're looking for something, vision's important!

Eva: My idea was find things that don't go together and look really stupid and you'll win. How dumb do I look?

Eva: Ahh! Lost my shoe! I'm flying, rolling down the street honey!

The Girl Who Wins It All [3.13]Edit

Amanda: I want to inspire people that have disabilities, or you know, shortcomings to just like, work through it and to find joy and everything.

Janice: [To Amanda] Japanda!

Yaya: The skirt was kinda see through. I didn't want to be disrespectful, but if that idea had been done in the States, it could look very...hoochie.

Amanda: I was serving up a piping hot plate of smile!

Amanda: I was really trying to utilize my inner joy. You know, my really strong personality and my appreciation for bunny rabbits and France.

Yaya: If there were anything that Amanda and I could do to make Eva feel more included or comfortable, I don't think we would.

Tyra: Will it be Yaya, the Ivy League grad who's road to become a top model had more than a few bumps on it?

Eva: I'm 5'7, but I don't have to be tall to be great!

Eva: Watch out world, here comes Eva!

Cycle 4Edit

Originally aired March 1 – May 18, 2005.

The Girl with the Worst Photo in History [4.5]Edit

Beverly Johnson: [referring to Rebecca's "Virgo" photograph] Even though you're the virgin, you're the virgin that everybody wants.
Nigel: Right.
Beverly Johnson: So you have to be very sensual.
Janice: Tyra, when you're strutting down the runway doing Victoria's Secret, wearing those bat wings, what are you thinking?
Tyra: I ain't thinking I'm no virgin.

Noelle:[about tennis shoot photographer] I dont know whether he wasn't hugged enough as a child or what.

The Girl Who is Contagious [4.6]Edit

Kahlen: I think the reason Mr. Jay dressed up was to show us that even though Michelle has scabies, she can still be beautiful.

The Girl Who Pushes Tyra Over The Edge [4.8]Edit

Tyra: [after eliminating Tiffany and Rebecca] Can you guys stand in front of me? I just want to say one more thing to you. Rebecca, I admire your emotion right now. It shows to me that this is something that's very important to you. Tiffany, I'm extremely disappointed in you. This is a joke to you. You've been through anger management, you've been through your grandmother getting her lights turned off to buy you a swimsuit for this competition, and you go over there and you joke, and you laugh? This is serious to these girls, and this should be serious to you.
Tiffany: Looks can be deceiving. I'm hurt. I am, but...I can't change it, Tyra. I-I've been...
Tyra: You can't change what?
Tiffany: I'm sick of crying about stuff that I cannot change. I'm sick of being disappointed, I'm sick of all of it. I'm not...
Tyra: You're not sick of being disappointed.
Tiffany: Obviously, I am.
Tyra: No, you're not. If you were sick of being disappointed, you would stand up, and you would take control of your destiny. Do you know that you had a possibility to win? Do you know that all of America is rooting for you? Do you know that? And then you come in here, and you treat this like a joke? You come in here and look at that, and say, "I can't read that?" You read ten times better than half of those girls over there!
Nigel and Nole: You did.
Tyra: And you come in here with a defeatist attitude.
Tiffany: I don't have a bad attitude! Maybe I am angry inside! I've been through stuff, so I'm angry!
Tyra: Be quiet, Tiffany. Be quiet! What is wrong with you? STOP IT! I have never in my life yelled at a girl like this! When my mother yells like this it's because she loves me. I was rooting for you, we were all rooting for you! How dare you?! Learn something from this! When you go to bed at night, you lay there and you take responsibility for yourself, because nobody's going to take responsibility for you. You're rolling your eyes and you act like it's because you've heard it all before - you've heard it all before - you don't know where the hell I come from! You have no idea what I've been through. But I'm not a victim; I grow from it and I learn. Take responsibility for yourself!

Janice: Kahlen, where'd that man come from?

The Girl Who Gets Bad News [4.9]Edit

Naima: [referring to a photo shoot at the bottom of a grave] Michelle's a little weird, so she's like "This is cool! This is cool!"—and I'm like, "This is freaky."

The Girls the Lionesses Are Hunting [4.10]Edit

Nole: Girl, that's a drag queen after my own heart. A girl in high heels running.

Nigel: [about Brittany] She's an exaggeration. She's like a walking exclamation mark. And it's not pretty.

Gerda: [about Kahlen's picture] She really got this deer, and I know this animal well.
Janice: How well do you know it?
Gerda: It's my national animal.

Kahlen: [[after feeding a bear a marshmellow from her mouth] I want to go home and brush my teeth for the next 5 days.

The Girl Who Walks on Water [4.14]Edit

Naima:I am speechless.

Jayla: Yes, that's it.
Jay Alexander: Buy now, pray later.

The Girl Who Needs a Miracle [5.3]Edit

Cassandra: If this doesn't work for me, then I'm definitely going to go back to pageants because I think that really helps you develop more as a woman, where modeling is just more of a career.

The Girl Who Makes a Disclaimer [5.4]Edit

Jay Manuel: [to Cassandra] So, are you ready to cut your hair?
Cassandra: No!
Jay Manuel: You know, I really don't have time for this today so... you just gotta leave my set.

The Girl Who Loves Bubbles and Talks to Plants [5.6]Edit

Lisa: You're the only one that seriously, like, dislikes me, and so-
Coryn: I'm the only one that told you to your face that I do not like you.

Coryn: [to Lisa] Will you shut up? Why are you still talking to me? Shut up!
Lisa: Okay, well...
Coryn: I do not like you. I've told you that a long time ago.
Lisa: Then don't talk about me, don't talk to me, don't make snappy comments to me. Just pretend I don't exist.
Coryn: Shut up, and I can pretend like you don't exist.
Lisa: That is so rude! Grow up, Coryn. You're basically presenting yourself like a moron! Okay?
Coryn: And what are you doing, alcoholic bitch?

The Girl Whose Boyfriend Is Cheating on Her [5.9]Edit

Kim: The person who would most likely get along with the Wild Boyz is disgusting, crazy: Lisa.

Nik: I just kept seeing everyone laugh, and I knew they weren't laughing at me, cause whatever I was doing wasn't that funny.

Lisa: [to the Wild Boyz, upon entering in a diaper] I'm wearing you guy's underwear!
Steve-O: Why?
Lisa: Why not?
Bre: Why is she wearing a diaper again?
Jayla: I don't know.
Bre: Oh, just thought I'd ask.
Lisa: We have to see if they work!
Bre: Lisa don't pee in it! [in confessional, referring to Lisa] Then Lisa announces that she's going to pee in a diaper. No woman of class, especially a supermodel in the making, is going to do something as disgusting as pee on herself at her job!
Nicole: [referring to Lisa] I feel disgusted!
Bre: Lisa, she's a sick individual, and if she wins this competition I hope she uses that $100,000 and checks herself into a psych ward, ASAP.

Lisa: [in the confessional] Everybody's looking at me like I'm crazy... Everybody's taking themselves way too serious... Everybody just needs to calm down. Calm down! Take a break. [takes out a jar of cookies] Eat a cookie!

Tyra: [to Jayla and Nicole] Well Jayla and Nicole, please step forward. You two are exquisite, beautiful girls. You take beautiful pictures, but when you open your mouths, they [referring to the judges] say, that there is no way that they can represent a product. You both are the top of the pack, but now you stand before me, at the bottom. With modeling, you guys have to be on point, you have to be fierce, you have to be ready. But the judges were so disappointed in you that tonight both of you must pack your bags... [pauses] Because we're all going to London!

The Girl Who Retaliates [5.11]Edit

Furonda: [in a behind the scene interview] Jade and I are not friends. We're not friends. [back to the present] I'm going to pick Nnenna.

Jay: [about Jade's bad takes for a Cover Girl commercial] She doesn't quite grasp the fact that she's got to improvise in this scene. It was thirty seconds of me listening to her heels clap on the concrete.

Kathleen: Let's say, 'cuz animals fight each other in the jungle, right, in the woods?

Kathleen: I think every model wants to date Nigel Barker, 'cuz he's so tall.

Natasha: I just want to tell you that some people have war in their countries. Don't be...please don't be—
Brittany: STOP TELLING ME NOT TO BE UPSET! I can be upset if I want to! I have a cab driver that doesn't listen, and I get fucked!

Celia: Tyra, with all due respect, I think there's something you should know. Tahlia did express that she did not want to be in this competition anymore, and that she did not feel that this was a wise career move on her part. It's quite unfair for someone who doesn't even want to here, to remain in the competition.
Tyra: You know what I think is unfair? That you're saying this, and not Tahlia. Tahlia did not say that to me, she did not say that to the judges. So what is truly you saying that to me.

Tyra Banks: I think Kayla is killing Jane in this picture.
J. Alexander: And she's not trying.
Tyra: She's not doing a damn thing.

Jay Manuel: [about contestant Esther Petrack's "30 G" bust] Having that bust size is gonna be a problem... We're not talking D, we're talking G.
Tyra: She holds her Gs better than my Ds!

Tyra: And I understand that you're pure.
Kendal Brown: [coyly] Yes.
Tyra: Tell me why being, um, intimate with a guy grosses you out, or freaks you out.
Kendal: Like—I don't like semen. I don't like semen on my hand. I don't like—I'm like, kinda... grossed out about it.
Tyra: So you've seen it before?
Kendal: Yeah I seen—[catches self and laughs] Yes, I've seen it before. Yes.

Kendal: I just like to cuddle. Something wrong with cuddling?

Chris White: Lemme lift the weave. [lifts a strand of hair above her ear] Lemme hear it.

Chris: [showing Tyra how she poses] Tick, tick, tick, tick, flash!

Diane von Furstenberg [15.2]Edit

Chris White: ...We're gonna find you a man... What's your type?
Ann Ward: Uh, hobos are kinda hot.
Chris: [later in same conversation] What's the oldest you'll go to?
Ann: Sixty. [laughs]
Chris: What kind of man do you want!?
Ann: He has to be a warlock, and he has to spit fire, and he has to know how to make sushi.
Chris: You're gonna be single.

Ann: [to camera] Yeah, I'm a weirdo.

Tyra Banks: [at first judging, referring to contestants] André, do you see any dreckitude right now?
André Leon Talley: Mmm, let's discuss.
Tyra: [to contestants] That means "yes".

Patricia Field [15.3]Edit

Terra White: [when asked why she was becoming emotional during her makeover] Like somebody cut all your hair off, you wouldn't be sad?
J. Alexander: Girl, they didn't cut my hair because my shit was fallin' out—from stress.

Matthew Rolston [15.4]Edit

Tyra Banks: [after spending "tea time" with 3 contestants] There's no more carrot cake—so that means it's time to go. [laughs]

Karolina Kurkova [15.5]Edit

[The contestants often try to predict upcoming challenges based on hints given in "Tyra Mail" messages]

Several contestants simultaneously: Tyra Mail!
Kayla Ferrel: [reading Tyra's words] "Don't let the competition throw you."
All: [reading] "Love, Tyra!"
Chris White: Somebody's gonna throw us.
Liz Williams: Guess what? We're about to get thrown out of a helicopter. I'm gonna be acting like, [poses with hand behind her head, smiling] "Aaagh!" [sinking to the floor] all the way down.

Nigel Barker: [critiquing contestant Ann Ward's photo] Look at your eyes!
André Leon Talley: And the mouth!
Nigel: And the eyes!
André: And the mouth!
Nigel: The eyes!

Patrick Demarchelier [15.6]Edit

Ann Ward: [to camera and in voice-over] My confidence is just really high right now—being able to go from not being sure about myself to getting top photo four times in a row. So, you know, I actually do feel like, uh, I'm a model, and I'm not just the gangly girl that sits in the back of class. So, I really do feel pretty now. So, I'm really happy here.

Patrick Demarchelier: [looking at a picture he just took of Tyra on a monitor] Who's this girl? I think she's going to win this. She's going to win the Next Top Model.
Tyra Banks: Thank you! [points to photo] I hear she's the bitch in the house. [laughs]

Kayla Ferrel: [to camera, describing photo shoot with Demarchelier] Patrick—I think he's speaking English to me, but I'm not really sure.
Patrick: [to Tyra, during photo shoot] Sometimes they look at me like I speaks [sic] Chinese, eh?

Tyra: [critiquing a good photo of Ann] Ann, walking down the street in person: perhaps one of the most awkward photo shoots, in person, I've ever seen in my life. And then I look at the film, and it's shot after shot like this. I don't get it.

Tyra: [at elimination] Best cumulative photos this week—Ann. [facetiously] Ann, you're making this so not interesting!
Ann: [quietly] I'm sorry.
Tyra: Do apologize for being amazing!

Francesco Carrozzini [15.7]Edit

Liz Williams: [on losing best picture the previous week] I was so upset that I didn't win it, 'cause I was so friggin' close. It just brought me down. And then I said, "Hmm—alcohol!"

Tyra Banks: [to Nigel Barker and other panelists before judging] I never told you this, but the first time I met you in person, and I was like, [mouth agape] "I'm gonna shoot with this fine-ass man?" And I was like, "I'm gonna be naked?" Augh! And he was like, [adopts British accent] "All right, Tyra, stand right there." And I was like, [cradles breasts] "OK, baby!" [laughs] And now he's like, Nigel, my friend.

Zac Posen [15.8]Edit

[the competitors must shoot a TV commercial for the fictional product H2T water, the opening line of which is: "Looking good on the outside starts with feeling good on the inside." The commercial includes a list of ingredients including acai berry, guarana, and chromium.]

Kayla Ferrel: Looking good on the inside starts with feelingggg— [long pause] great on the outside? Hold on. [thinks] Ok, can I start over?

Kayla: [in her "best take" shown at judging] Looking good on the inside starts with feeling good on the outside. With seven ingredients including asabi [phonetic transcription] berry, gorona [phon.], and chron—and— [shrugs] grabana [phon.]. And when you feel beautiful on the outside, you always feel beautiful on the inside. H2T: feel beautiful inside and out.

Nigel Barker: [mocking Kayla's performance] This water has an iguana in it, and Corona in it, and it has some Asahi berries.

Margherita Missoni [15.9]Edit

Liz Williams: [to camera] When I hear "Milan", I think Mulan—like, the movie? So, I'm thinkin' Japan, dragons—you know, I don't even know where my mind was at. But, of course, I always looked at Chelsea, 'cause if Chelsea's freakin' out, it must be something big.

Tyra Banks: I like this picture of you, Chris, in the wide. It has a—a sexuality that borders on a slight hoochie, but you didn't get off on the hoochie stop. You've stayed on the train.

Franca Sozzani [15.11]Edit

[An acting coach is helping the contestants to present themselves in a strong, friendly manner]

Barbara Terrinoni: [to Ann] You.
Ann Ward: [barely audible] Hello, I'm Ann.
Barbara: [inhales sharply] Are you sure you're alive?

Barbara: Smile. [Ann smiles] Not like Frankenstein. Smile!

André Leon Talley: [describing Ann] There's some super power pushing her. There's a force of nature that's propelling her.

Roberto Cavalli [15.13]Edit

Ann Ward: [on how people used to treat her] All these comments about being too tall, or just being not normal—
Nigel Barker: Guess what? You're not normal. You're America's next top model.

Cycle 16Edit

Originally aired February 23 – May 18, 2011.

Erin Wasson [16.1]Edit

Tyra Banks: [spoofing stereotypical contestant] I'm 19 years old and my favorite designer is Hello Kitty. I would do anything, anything, anything to become America's Next Top Model—except cut my hair.

Tyra: [spoofing stereotypical contestant] I want this. My name is [pointing to letters tattoed on arm] Angora Nylandra Tafatia Michaels. I'm not here to make friends.

Jay Manuel: [referring to "sexiness" of contestant Monique Weingart] You might be bringin' the wrong crowd to the table.
J. Alexander: Or the right crowd, if you ask me. Go on, baby!

Tyra: [pretending that this season's contestants have been eliminated] So, unfortunately, you guys have to go home now. But you don't have to go far. [pushes button to reveal this season's "model house"] Because you're home!

Dominique Waldrup: Today we were inside of this big-ass bubble, lookin' like a fuckin' gerbil.

André Leon Talley: [to Tyra, referring to contesant Molly O'Connell's choice of wardrobe for the first judging] Would you go to your first go-see with your midriff showing like that?
Tyra: I wouldn't go to my last go-see with my midriff— [trails off amidst laughter]

Nigel Barker: Nicole isn't truly present in this shot—and the mouth, you know, it's too tight. [unintelligible] sort of cat's bottom. [purses his lips to illustrate]

Alek Wek [16.2]Edit

[after contestant Ondrei Edwards has voluntarily quit the competition during the judging session, the judges have just finished deliberating over who will be formally eliminated, her or another contestant]
Tyra Banks: We've reached a decision.
André Leon Talley: We've reached a decision.
Nigel Barker: No, we haven't!
André: Yes, we have!
Nigel: No, we have not!
Tyra: Yes, we have!
Nigel: No, we haven't!

Tyra: [alluding to the uncertainty over whether another contestant will actually be eliminated this week] Twelve beautiful girls stand before me—and who knows how many photos I have in my hands.

Lori Goldstein [16.3]Edit

[the contestants address the camera after learning what styles will be given in the coming "makeovers" but not who will get which each style]
Monique Weingart: [whining] I just really like my hair, and I don't want to cut it.
Jaclyn Poole: I don't want blonde. Please don't give me blonde hair!
Brittani Kline: I really, really, really, really, really, really want the red hair!

Sara Longoria: [on feeling less attractive than the other contestants after getting made over with "manly short brown spikes"] I feel like dirty Sméagol in the corner, like, trying not to be jealous.

[Note: "panel" is the judging session after which someone is eliminated]
Sara: [to camera] I am always nervous about panel. I shake like a little housebroken Chihuahua.

Tyra Banks: [on the need to upstage the other girl in a two-model shot] So many models that when they get to a certain level, they're like, "I don't do doubles. I don't do doubles." I never said no to a double; I just said, "Back up, bitch."

André Leon Talley: [praising the swan-like neck extension of the models in a photo] And both Kasia and Molly have taken us to the level of swandom!

Eric Daman [16.7]Edit

Tyra Banks: A lot of young girls think that the opposite of fake is rudeness. And just as ugly as fake is, so is saying whatever is on your mind because it's the truth.
