On the final runaway, the 19-year-old Beech Creek native falls after slipping on some rose petals, but charms the judges with her strut.
Brittani Kline has been crowned the winner of "America's Next Top Model" for Cycle 16 on Wednesday, May 18. The 5 ft 10.5 inch model beat Molly O'Connell on the finale after filming a CoverGirl commercial, doing a photo shoot for Vogue Italia, and walking the final runaway for Vivienne Westwood's Anglomania line.
Nineteen-year-old Brittani charmed the judges with her strut despite the fact that she fell after slipping on some rose petals, crashed into a wall, twisted her ankle and cut her wrist. Tyra Banks admitted, "That girl's got something. I thought your pose was divine."
At the panel, the judges decided the winner after examining carefully the girls' photos and work throughout the season. Brittani got the title as she brought a fresh character to each new assignment, while Molly portrayed the same characterization in almost every single shot.
Brittani's way to be a champion on "America's Next Top Model" was not an easy one. She shed some tears throughout the competition and had to overcome her lack of confidence, but has since grown as a professional model.
As the winner, the Beech Creek native, whose mother is suffering from an anxiety disorder, will be featured in a CoverGirl campaign and get a $100,000 contract with the company. She will additionally receive a contract with IMG Models.
