How to Succeed in the America’s Next Top Model Competition


Emerging as the winner in America’s Next Top Model, a competition that gives aspiring models the chance to succeed in this incredibly competitive industry, can prove difficult. Before sending out your application, learn some tips and tricks about professional modeling to improve your chances of winning.

  • Your physical appearance stands paramount in importance. Exercise, consume a healthy diet and keep you weight under control. Take care of your hair and skin, as they should look healthy and beautiful because they play an important role in your overall look. Your smile will say a lot, so get braces to correct your teeth if necessary. Keep in mind that participants on the America’s Next Top Model show are not always the most beautiful women; rather they have something unique about themselves.

  • Take some modeling classes or read up on it in online modeling communities. Watch videos and analyze photos of professional models to learn how to move and pose. Practice several poses, and put on high heels to develop a perfect runway walk. The winners of America’s Next Top Model have real skill at walking on the runway, they take great pictures, and they can easily adapt to different looks.
  • Keep in mind that roses don’t pave this path. Modeling remains a tough business, and you’ll most probably have to deal with mean and insensitive reactions, critiques and comments from everybody—from your agent to the photographers to the other models. If you have a sensitive nature, either toughen up or consider another career.
  • You need to exude confidence and professionalism. If you managed to get an audition or an appointment, always show up on time. Thousands of women aspire to become models, so they will quickly replace you if you show a lack of professionalism. You should listen to and follow directions if you want to get and keep jobs.
  • Think about potential questions that might come up in auditions and prepare strong answers. If someone asks why you want to work as a model or why you think you’re the right person for the job, don’t let shyness take over. Show confidence in your abilities and you’ll have a lot to gain.
  • Try to secure the support of a modeling agency, but beware of scams. Do a little research on the agency before paying an expensive fee for no results. Ask other models or search for information online. When you work with an agency, it will organize a photo shoot for you and put together a portfolio.
  • America’s Next Top Model shouldn’t be the first modeling experience you have. Few make it without prior participation in other competitions or comparable experience, so sign up for smaller competitions to get some exposure.
  • After taking all the steps to make sure you have enough experience and knowledge to have a chance, sent out your application for America’s Next Top Model. The show selects only 14 women each cycle from thousands of applications, so make sure you have a strong one.
