Top models Analeigh Tipton and Yaya DaCosta

Let’s be honest, if Tyra Banks tells you, “Congratulations. You are still in the running to be America’s Next Top Model,” you’re already out of the running to be a real top model. While some contestants have found success –Analeigh Tipton and Yaya DaCosta, arguably two of the most successful alumni, have established careers in acting — the show has failed to produce an actual working supermodel.
Meanwhile, a number of contestants have found nothing but heartache when cameras stopped rolling. Here are six ill-fated outcomes, the first three actually tragic, horrible and devastating, the latter four more…unfortunate (so as not to compare apples to oranges).
