After reading 'Janice Dickinson''s book "No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel", 'Tyra Banks (I)' called her personally to be a judge on the show.
Each season ("cycle") is completely shot nearly a year before broadcast.
Last show to be canceled that originally started it's broadcast on the former UPN network.
The photographers in the show shoot either on a Canon EOS-1Ds series of DSLR bodies or the successive Hasselblad H series medium format cameras. The only time the photographers do not shoot on either is when Nigel Barker is shooting - he uses his Mamiya in his various shoots and Mike Rosenthal on Cycle 12, episode 4 shot with a large format camera.
As of Cycle 6, Lisa D'Amato from Cycle 5 was the first non-winner of America's Next Top Model to make a guest appearance on a future cycle.
CariDee English is the 1st blonde model to win the show.
She and Nicole Linkletter (cycle 5) are the only two champions from North Dakota.
