Congratulations to Jaslene! I really liked this girl from the start; I think she’s stunningly beautiful and adorable. I did like Natasha a lot — I have a soft spot for Russian chicks, and her ever-cheerful attitude was endearing — but Jaslene deserved the win.
For those of you who didn’t catch it the eight times per episode it was mentioned this season — Jaslene was actually cut in semi-finals during the last cycle, and came back this season to win the whole thing. The 20-year-old Chicagoan is the first Latina to win ANTM. We can now look forward to seeing Jaslene on the cover of Seventeen magazine, in the My Life as a Cover Girl ads, on the next season of ANTM, and then never, ever again. Unless she decides to, you know, fuck a Brady or something. Isn’t that right, Adrianne Curry?
