America's Next Top Model

What Have the ANTM Cycle 17: All-Stars Finalists Been Doing Since the Show?

After one of the most bizarre finales not only in America’s Next Top Model history, but in reality television history, the modelstants from Cycle 17: All-Stars had to decide where to go from there. Nowhere but up, right?

We checked in on the four finalists, Allison Harvard, winner Lisa D’Amato, Laura Kirkpatrick and Angelea Preston, to see how they’ve been spending their post-ANTM days.

Allison Harvard: A regular contributor to Tumblr, Allison updates her blog roll with cute GIFs and photo memories from movies (like this one we love, from Trainspotting). She’s also a big tweeter, posting photos like this one of her with her friends taking vintage, glam Polaroid-style pics where they get all dressed up. As for her stated plans to concentrate on her artwork, Allison really lived up to the lofty ambitions she spouted — you can find her very impressive oil prints here on Etsy.

Laura Kirkpatrick: Amazingly, cute-as-a-button Laura went through a lengthy, brutal and chaotic All-Stars cycle of America’s Next Top Model, didn’t even make the final three, and maintained her adorable easy-going demeanor. Her tweets sound just as simple and sweet as most of her dialogue did on Cycle 17, and she’s even hanging on to her religion: “God works out everything in Time.” It looks like she’s also keeping in touch with Lisa and Allison, too! Plus, true to her word, Laura has kept up with her Grumbage clothing line, which you can peruse here.

Lisa D’Amato: Despite some ambiguous personal drama in her life (well-documented on Twitter), Lisa is kicking ass and taking names when it comes to promoting herself and her new All-Stars crown all over town. Her app, Earth to Lisa, has been out for months, she has a pretty decent site at, and seems to be focusing a lot of her energy on her second studio album, Flippin the Bird. Listen to the tracks for yourself and tell us what you think!

As for Angelea, the mystery behind her disqualification remains unsolved. Her website is still down, and she hasn’t tweeted a single thing since the week of the ANTM Cycle 17: All-Stars finale in December. When Wetpaint Entertainment asked her current rep, Jeff Cohen at Model Management Group, what Angelea was up to over the holidays, he told us, “I’m sure Angelea is enjoying the time off and spending it with family.”

But can we really be sure of anything Angelea is doing? Not until we get answers! We’ll add that to our list of New Year’s resolutions for 2012: find out the truth.
