|Ten finalists arrive in a New York apartment loft to compete for the title of America's Next Top Model. Tyra Banks, who created the show, meets the girls and tells them about the show: each week, they'll be put through challenges, do photo shoots, and be judged by the best in the fashion industry. Each week, one girl is eliminated until one is left standing as America's Next Top Model.|
Five eliminations later, the contest continues in Paris; three more eliminations and it's back to New York to set the stage for a fashion show to determine the winner.
Judges: Janice Dickinson, Kimora Simmons, Beau Quillan, and a guest judge each week.
Cycle 1 winner: Adrienne Curry.
