May 30, 2012 08:23 PM by Veronica Dudo


And then there were two. In tonight’s finale the battle between America and Britain will come to an end and the 2012 winner will be crowned! The remaining models must shoot a Cover Girl commercial and walk the runway! With the stakes high on the CW reality TV show, one model is sent to the hospital. Who will clench the title of America’s Next Top Model? Keep reading to find out!

Former contestants from “Britain’s Next Top Model” and an all-new crop of American model hopefuls have been competing for the grand prize. It’s now down to two finalists–Laura from America, and Sophie from the United Kingdom. The stakes are high as the models are all vying for a spread in Italian Vogue, a celebrity hosting gig with Extra and a $100,000 contract with Cover Girl cosmetics.

It’s the US versus the UK on Tyra Banks’ modeling competition. The international competition has been played up all season long and how perfectly it worked out that Laura from America and Sophie from Britain are the final two left in the competition. It’s now time to shoot the Cover Girl commercial. In-between shots Laura starts to have a lot of health issues. She says, “It’s like my world is collapsing.” She says her chest is tightening, she’s shaking and says, it “feels like someone was around my throat chocking me!”

No time is wasted and Laura is taken to the hospital. At this point no one is sure whether or not Laura will have the opportunity to finish reading her lines for the commercial.

Next up, Sophie comes in excited for her shoot but Jay tells her what happened to Laura. Sophie says she knows she must continue on but is worried about her friend. Sophie gathers her thoughts and finishes the commercial shoot.

Laura reveals that she suffered a panic attack and luckily is given a second chance to shoot her commercial.

Later, Tyra visits the finalists in the house and spends some time with each of them. She tells both Laura and Sophie how proud she is of them.

Inside a sheik spa, both girls wear nude colored bathing suits for their photo shoot. The photographer says Laura did better with this task since she likes to tap into her “sex appeal.”

Sophie and Laura find out the runway show will be like no other since it will be a holographic runway show. Timing is key for this final task. Former contestants Catherine, Eboni, Alisha and Annaliese are brought back to walk the runway. The girls have fun with their last event together. Sophie is especially happy because she has received a lot of compliments on her ‘walk.’

During panel the judges look at Laura as a rock and roll chick while Sophie has more of the girl-next-door look. This is the moment that both girls have been hoping for–whose dream will come true? Sophie is selected as this season’s America’s Next Top Model winner! She says she can’t believe a girl from Britain won the American competition!

    Well that really sucks and I am really disappointed in the judges. This will be my last time watching the show, It is call America’s Next Top Model. Why is it we have to take care of other people before we take care of our own? Very disappointed in the whole show

    I think that Tyra is going to do something new. I am glad that Sophie won but since fired everyone on the show, it is hard to watch. Also, Allison from the all-star show should have won. I am so disappointed in the show. And further more, Anchel shoulda won too. And what was with the weird show prior to this one? The one where she had her book as a focus. Lord. I am done with ANTM

    I celebrate Sophie’s win! She had the fire, spirit, positivity and a unique look that gave her the edge over Laura. The future of the show will be interesting to watch as some of the staples are gone. A disappointment. Good luck ANTM.
