America's Next Top Model (Cycle 10)
Five other full-figured models tried before her but it was the Twenty-one year old student from Atlantic Beach, Florida who became the first full-figured model to win the coveted title of America's Next Top Model Cycle 10.
Whitney received favorable reviews on her looks and photo shoots on and off. She was often accused of being too beauty pageanty and was even once compared to Anna Nicole Smith (who's idea was it to turn her into a blonde anyway - oh yeah, Tyra's). Despite the negativity she managed to maintain her composure and apply what she learned about herself and the other models to the following week.
As a winner of ANTM, Whitney received a contract with Elite Model Management, a $100,000 contract with Cover Girl Cosmetics and a six page spread and cover in Seventeen magazine (July 2008 issue).
I look forward to seeing and hearing more of this beauty.
Three reasons to love Whitney Thompson
Looks good as a blonde and a brunette.
Will make a great curvy chic role model.
Takes a beautiful picture.
Hair Color: Natural Brunette/Currently Blonde
Eye Color: Green
According to US standard clothing size Whitney falls into a few categories. Based on her chest size alone she can either be a Misses size 14 or Catalog size 8. Because her hips are bigger (making her pear shaped) she falls into Misses size 18 or Catalog size 16. According to a quote in her Seventeen spread she is size 14.

Share your stories, sightings, thoughts, rants, raves...
Some of you leave some great comments but they never see the light of day because you choose to add the "F" or "S" word (or some other derogatory word). If you can't make your point without using it then no one is going to take you seriously anyway. Especially in this format.
I use swear words in the day to day all the time so no I'm not a prude but when it comes to this lens swear words can turn this lens into a "R" rated one which is something I don't want.
So here's the deal. Tidy up your language and your comment gets posted. It's as simple as that. Thank you for your cooperation.
Shout Out For Whitney Thompson!
raelcalu on June 24, 2012:
yes,i saw this season and was somehow addicted to watching ANTM...she walk her way in winning the title much better than her runner up, she deserves it.
Mona from Iowa on December 27, 2010:
I loved that Whitney won ANTM been watching the series for quite awhile and would never have guessed a big girl would make it to the top. Seems like most of them get broke down emotional somewhere in the middle. Loved this lens. :)
Marelisa on November 16, 2010:
I haven't watched this show in a long time, but I remember that in the seasons that I did watch the plus-sized model always felt out of place among all the skinny girls. A few episodes in this would start to show in the way they carried themselves, and they would be eliminated. Kudos to Whitney for having so much self-confidence. It's never easy to go against convention, even when you're as beautiful as she is.
SmBizGuru LM on October 26, 2010:
I like Whitney's confidence in her self. Way to Go!
anonymous on October 01, 2010:
I can not understand why someone would call her a "plus girl" - she looks to me like a beautiful, healthy woman with a great body. The fashion industry is a strange (and often bad) thing. Woman need to look skinny with no body to be pretty?? That's not pretty. Never was and never will be.
lasertek lm on August 29, 2010:
I have not watched this season but it seems Whitney Thompson is a great choice.
anonymous on April 09, 2010:

anonymous on April 09, 2010:
i'm a size 14 from australia (which is a 10 in the US) and finding out that Whitney won cycle 10 from ANTM certainly made me feel better about myself! seriously she looks absolutely amazing! like a goddess :)
anonymous on February 25, 2010:
ANTM Cycle 10 just finished last year in the philippines..and ever since i already loved whitney!!! she's funny and so real! go whitney!!
anonymous on September 03, 2009:
Does anyone know anything about her? What´s she doing nowadays? I was hoping that she won cycle 10 (in my country it recently finished!) but I think she hasn´t got as much contracts as Jaslene for example and I find that really strange! I mean she is gorgeous and truth be told, a real role model for girls all around the world, I would really want to know what she is doing now... hope she´s not been discriminated for her weight.
Cherry-Ambition from U.S. on August 18, 2009:
I never saw this season of ANTM! Whitney is gorgeous! I think I'm going to have to favorite this lens...
anonymous on February 03, 2009:

MsMorrison on September 14, 2008:
Great girl! She deserves it!
GypsyPirate LM on May 21, 2008:
I have to admit it - I was rooting for her to win this cycle. Great SquidWho page, I loved it!
Ruth Coffee from Zionsville, Indiana on May 18, 2008:
She looks great as a brunette or blonde...guess everyone just expects celebrities and models to be blonde. It's fun to watch film from the 50's and you see that blondes are RARE.
Moe Wood (author) from Eastern Ontario on May 17, 2008:
Thanks for leaving your opinion Blake. I personally don't know anyone who is the same that they were in school. And it is reality television (light on the real). :)
anonymous on May 16, 2008:
Okay, congrats...but this is getting on my nerves! I went to school with Whitney and if you knew the stuck up girl she was and into herself she was also, shes putting on for tv! And im tired of hearing her talk about her butt and hips! she used to tell ppl that she was fat and needed to lose a lot of weight, but she was pretty skinny at school.I guess she gave up.
