She wants to be on top! Kiara Belen placed runner-up on Cycle 19 of "America's Next Top Model," the college edition. The gorgeous, statuesque former UC Irvine basketball player lost to cornsilk-blonde Laura James, the daughter of "Dynasty" actor John James, in an extremely close final panel.

Victoria On “America’s Next Top Model” And The Scourge Of Faux Concern

Every reality show competition has its oddball and Victoria on "America's Next Top Model" fits it to a 'T.'

We were totally shocked when we saw former "America's Next Top Model" contest Jael Strauss -- who'd appeared on Cycle 8 of the series -- would be appearing on a "Dr. Phil" episode devoted to her drug abuse.

This Is What Happens When You Mate Tyra Banks With A Nipple

Tyra Banks Cleans House For The Next Season Of “Top Model”

I guess Tyra Banks is aware that she's grasping at straws on this season of "America's Next Top Model." You know when you do a segment called "Tooch Teach" that it's time to change stuff up. After 19 Cycles of almost exactly the same thing, Tyra has decided to clean house for the next seaso…

A Breakdown Of Tyra Banks’ Tooch Teach On Last Night’s “Top Model”

This season of "America's Next Top Model" has been particularly dull. The UK vs. US premise seems secondary to Tyra's shameless attempts to promote her Modelland books. Last night, Tyra achieved an unprecedented level of ridiculousness with her "booty tooch teach." She had special "booty tooch" hot shorts and "training tooches" (ass pads) for all…
