Adrienne Curry, the winner from season 1 of America’s Next Top Model, is just now opening up to us about how she didn’t receive any contract with Revlon or Wilhelmina models.
In ANTM (America’s Next Top Model) the contestants are competing against each other for a modeling contract + a contract with a makeup brand.
It just so happened that in the first season of ANTM, the winner Adrienne Curry, didn’t receive anything! They told her that she’d sign to Wilhelmina which didn’t happen, and that she’s try on makeup for Revlon and they’d give her $15K and that didn’t happen either! This to me seemed like a scam! That is crazy.
So in the next season of ANTM, they dropped Wilhelmina, and linked up with IMG models instead. Wilhelmina had the audacity to basically blame Adrienne Curry.. which doesn’t make any sense because it was them that wasn’t really doing anything with her.
Not really sure who’s to include in the blame, Tyra Banks should’ve reassured everything, that was somebody’s dream and they kind of blew her off. All three of them ANTM, Wilhelmina, and Revlon.
The only model from ANTM seasons that actually stayed relevant on television and the scene was Eva Marcille! Love her.
