Does "America's Next Top Model" crown its first-ever male winner? The 20th season which pitted girls against boys concluded on a Friday, November 15 episode with two guys and one girl in the Top 3.

At the beginning of the finale, one of them was sent packing, though. Cory Hindorff broke down in tears as he was eliminated, but Tyra Banks said that he would walk the runway along with the Top 2 as well as some previously-eliminated contestants.

Tyra explained that she changed her mind and let Cory join the runway show because she had had a similar experience. She was once told to go home before a Versace show while she already had her make-up and dress on, so she didn't want Cory to get through the same thing.

The runway show was based on a commercial that the Top 3 shot before. It was about a girl, played by Jourdan, who would choose between her lover (Cory) who beat her and a good guy (Marvin).

Jourdan had a stumble on the runway, but she could recover gracefully. She also surprised Marvin by kissing him on the lips while they practiced a kiss on the check prior to the show.

For the final photo shoot, Tyra served as the photographer and did their make-up as well. The super model painted the finalists' bodies and put them into a bamboo-type grove.

At the final panel, the judges were divided as Jourdan and Marvin were equally good. After they commented on the finalists' performance on the runway show and the photo shoot, the judges deliberated for a while before announcing the winner.

At the end of the day, Jourdan took the crown by a considerable margin. The 19-year-old took home the top prize, which included a $100,000 Guess campaign, a contract with NEXT model management and a spread in Nylon magazine.

Jordan is the typical blond tall model. Yes she fits the standard of beauty that has been around for so long but personally I was hoping for something different. However I don't buy clothes/goods based on this limited view of beauty anyway so it does not impact me directly.....but am excited for the day when a truer and more diverse representation of beauty will be in the media!

Glad Jourdan won she had the best portfolio out of the top three she deserved to win,I was very disappointed Marvin was in the top three, She had a very luckluster portfolio.The top three should have been Jourdan, Nina and Cory.

I really think Marvin should've won why because Jordan is nothing but a fake ass white girl who cries and starts drama for anything hes a fake person and should not have won on the other hand Marvin should have won because of his determine mind to get there and to do it as well. he wanted it for a big reason Jordan only wanted it for the money to her own self Marvin wanted it for his family honestly yea he did screw up a lot but he will always be a way better model then that fake bleach blond tramp. :)

Jourdan was so beautiful and amazing, i was just so happy when i watched the finally. Nice decision Tyra :)

picture wise, Jourdan was more consistent and stronger than Marvin. Marvin is blessed with his bone structure but modelling wise, he seldom changes his expression. I think the only model in the series on par with Jourdan was Chris H.

Jourdan was the best model but as Phil said, every girl who remotely resembles Jourdan is in the industry so her chances of success are slim. Also, I think it's significant that none of the designers picked Jourdan for their runway shows. Personally, I was hoping Renee would pull out some great photos but she never really did. Marvin is hit and miss for me, bordering on too youngish. I was squarely in Chris' corner until the 'you look like a monkey' reference to Marvin. Too bad Mike cannot model; he's quite beautiful. Phil is pure sex and my favorite.

MARVIN should have won and Jordan was a joke...SHAME...I guess this show really isn't fair at all...I am done watching it...

Was hoping for Cory. Would have chosen Marvin over Jourdan but Guess loved her look so knew she would win. Guess the country is not ready for Cory. Glad Philly is going to fete him.

Clearly, Jourdan deserves to win! She's beautiful.

By Tyra. Been following the show from the start. How predictable and boring. Elimination at runway was bogus. Marvin was cute but his walk bedded improvement. The only interesting person was Cory. How does it feel to play with peoples lives???

HOW DARE TYRA??? Narvin was so much better. He is gorgeous AND has a great personality. Clearly the better model. Why have a guys vs girls if the guys dont even have a chance?

Jourdan was probably the better technical model but she's so typical and boring. She's exactly what you expect, pretty blonde girl and I wasn't too big on that. Plus she was just so unlikeable I would have prefered for anyone but her to win.

I can't believe Jourdan won , I have watched Americas next top model for years and this was most disappointing ever. Jourdan is so typical and boring. I loved Americas next top model because I would have that model that was unique and that Jourdan is not. Marvin or even Cory should've won very very disappointing !!!!!!

Marvin was so much better then Jourdan.

I am glad jourdan won. Marvin the best and better looking model. Mmm NOT. I am a gay man and I did not see anything sexy about that guy. I would say jourdan was HOTTER
