America's Next Top Model: Miss J Talks Book, ANTM Cycle 14, and More!

We all know Miss J. Alexander as America's Next Top Model "runway diva extraordinaire," and now he's put out a book to help those of us who are catwalk challenged (that includes me!) to channel our inner supermodels, too. The book is called Follow the Model: Miss J's Guide to Unleashing Presence, Poise and Power, and Miss J recently sat down with ABC News to chat about his inspiration for the book, his job at America's Next Top Model, and the wisdom he received from his grandmother and mother that goes far beyond strutting and posing.

Interview: Jennifer An of 'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 13

It's a rare America's Next Top Model contestant who actually is the way she comes across on television, and Jennifer An, the 24-year-old actress and model from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is one of those contestants. In a good way. On the show, Jennifer was bubbly, friendly, and optimistic, and--even after going through her crushing elimination from the competition just shy of the final two--she's just the same over the phone. Perhaps it helps that during last night's ANTM episode, she ended up with a gorgeous Pele-inspired photo and a 5-day vacation in Maui. Talk about ending on a high note. I had the pleasure of chatting--and laughing--with Jennifer this morning about her experience in the Top Model house, from her new "BFF forever" whom she met on the show, to how she felt like a "father" (really!) to some of her younger competitors. And she didn't just confirm what I already knew (which includes that she loves to laugh). You'll never guess what recent movie you can spot her in, and why she thinks she was left out of most of the Top Model house drama. To Read More Click Here .

Interview: Erin Wagner of 'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 13

Compared to previous cycles, this season of America's Next Top Model was relatively smooth-sailing in the drama department. It was never boring, of course, but who doesn't love watching a good model cat-fight unfold? Nobody, that's who. For what little social excitement that came across our screens this cycle, we have contestant Erin Wagner, 18, at least partially to thank. Her wisecracking and brutally honest assessments of fellow models and the show's challenges may have rubbed some the wrong way, but her many stellar photos from throughout the competition showed that she had the modeling talent to back up the attitude. She made it to the final four, after all! And, as we know about reality TV, not everything is always as it seems. To Read More Click Here .

Preview to 'ANTM' Cycle 13 Finale

What happens during the finale of " America's Next Top Model " next week has been previewed by The CW . The final two of cycle 13, Laura Kirkpatrick and Nicole Fox, will have to battle wind and rain when the two elements are brought to the runway. They will also have to be able to pull the final CoverGirl commercial in Hawaii. Laura and Nicole beat Jennifer An and Erin Wagner during this week's episode when their photo shots in Hawaii were graded well by the judges. One of them will not only be crowned as the winner of cycle 13 but also the first petite model because the show has particularly cast models 5'7" and shorter. The finale airs on November 18 at 8/7c and right after that a recap of the whole season will be aired. Eddie Murphy is a guest at the final runway show. The 14th cycle has been confirmed but The CW has not determined the premiere date. Rumor has it Miss J will be demoted from his position as judge. Supermodel Kimora Lee Simmons and Vogue's editor Andre Leon Talley reportedly will be hired as the new judges. The CW has denied Simmons and Talley's participation but won't say anything about Miss J's fate. Source & Preview

'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 13: The Final Two Revealed! Whose Portfolio is Stronger?

Last night on America's Next Top Model , Tyra and her judges narrowed the field from four models to two, leaving bubbly babe Laura and monotone maven Nicole to duke it out in next Wednesday's finale. Both models are fan favorites, but when it comes down to strengths and weaknesses, they couldn't be more different. Each model has had her shining moments and slight missteps over the course of the cycle, but it will all come down to a final Covergirl commercial and intense runway show to decide this cycle's winner. Who has the poise, talent, and grace under pressure to seal the victory? To Read More Click here .

'America's Next Top Model' Final 4 Runway Walks: Who Struts Best?

There's so much that goes into becoming America's Next Top Model . There's that staple: looking beautiful in expensive dresses (which the final four attempt this week--click for their final photos). And there's getting through Tyra's arbitrary challenges (like, say, doing a Hawaiian hip hop dance) without complaining. And, of course, there's being the best Covergirl for the job. Much of the each ANTM cycle is devoted to these lofty tasks, but let's not forget the other essential part of an ANTM winner: her runway walk! As you'll recall, the final two models always strut in a runway show in the final episode, and how they perform can make or break their chances of winning. Throw in the fact that our models this cycle are under 5'7 , and will probably be walking with models closer to 5'10 in height, and I'm guessing we've got a very dramatic final face-off coming our way!

Interview: Sundai Love of 'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 13

Sundai Love should thank her legs. Despite being the shortest model in this cycle of shorties on America's Next Top Model , she still managed to outlast most of her competition, making it to Hawaii and the final 5 contestants. In picture after picture, Tyra and the judges commended her for looking much taller than her 5'3'' frame gave her credit for... and those legs even helped her outrun her competitors in their relay challenge, winning her a $1,000 gift certificate to Wal-Mart. I had the pleasure of chatting with Sundai, 18, this afternoon about her experience on the show, including her literal highs and lows in the competition, from up on a horse to down deep in the ocean. She revealed her favorite models left in the running, what viewers would be surprised to learn about her, and how she plans to harness her youthful image--with hopes of being on our TV screens once more!

'America's Next Top Model' Final 5: Who Should/Will Go Home Next?

We're coming down to the wire on this cycle of America's Next Top Model : Short Makeover Edition. We've seen eight photo shoots so far in cycle 13, and just as many challenges meant to test the five remaining under-5'7'' models on their poise, beauty, random skills, and (oh yeah!) modeling talent. So, now that only Jennifer, Nicole, Laura, Erin and Sundai remain, I ask you, O patient and discerning ANTM fans: Who will be eliminated--and who should be eliminated--before the Final 2 face off in the ANTM finale two weeks from now? It's a simple, two-part question, really. But that doesn't mean the answer is. Especially when we've got Tyra calling the shots. So, as you prepare to watch tonight's episode, "Dive Deeper," or you're here after the episode to react to the latest elimination, check out the final photos once again, assess each girl's strengths and weaknesses, and let me know who YOU think deserves to reach the runway!
