America's Next Top Hypocrite

During casting, "ANTM" plus-sized winner Whitney said she wouldn't change herself to win -- but who the hell was the chick who went home with the modeling contract last night?

Number 4 is probably fat and that is why she hates them. She is jealous that a plus sized model won and she is a nobody. Get a life number 4.!!!

ok, when whitney said she wouldn't change, she meant she wouldnt lose weight. her makeover was part of the show, it wasnt her choice. and she didnt choose to hide her body behind the pink dress, it was the final look she wore in the versace show, a look that was hand picked for her body, it wasnt her choice to wear it, she was told to, so she didnt hide behind it, she just continued to promote the look and sell it to the public which is a models job.

This show is fixed    

I can't believe Whitney won, i was so disappointed when they called her name. and that runway show was the worse one yet. it was so boring, no pizzazz to it at all. Anya should have won

Whitney is an amazing role model, the only reason she looked different is because they give you makeovers half way through the show, who cares if her hair is a different colour?? Shes still the "plus size" girl and she stayed true to that.. Congrats Whitney! She deserves it.. and shes not a Hypocrite because she died her hair. thats ridiculous...

A size 10 is big? I'm a 6, but a 10 is far from big. I think it's good and healthy to show various sizes as we are not all the same. Maybe sometimes overweight isn't healthy, but smaller sizes sometimes aren't either. Your waist size and the amount of exercise you get has a lot to do with health. Skinny doesn't automatically equal healthy. Besides, I think healthy curves are far more beautiful than boy-like figures.

Obviously anyone who thinks Whitney is fat has never seen an actual fat person and should therefore be ignored since someone who never leaves their home is uninformed.

And again, 8, 10, even 12 is not an actual plus-size. Plus-size stores start at 14. You can't get anything smaller there. 0-12 is regular sizing. Also, if anyone remembers the go-sees: Fatima was actually criticized for being a size 0 as opposed to being a size 2. So, you CAN be too skinny, apparently.

Being underweight is just as dangerous as being overweight. Not eating enough deprives your brain of nutrients and can give you sometimes fatal heart problems. Oh, wow, that sounds similar to the problems you get from being overweight. Could it be that it's because they're both eating disorders, just different ends of the spectrum?! Oh, mah, gawd.

Anyway. I'm not sure that Whitney was the most talented model there, but after 10 cycles, a "plus-sized" girl needed to at least make it to the finale. She's definitely promoting a healthy body weight, I'd bet anything that her BMI is right where it's supposed to be vs. someone like Fatima who would be dangerously underweight. I agree, they shouldn't have a 200 pound woman saying "hey kids, be just like me". But it's just as irresponsible to have a 90 pound woman saying that. Miss Whitney, however, is the picture of health and vitality.

Tyra decides their makeovers including hair color. She's a size 8. TMZ is lame.

Thing is, you see, the show makes the models have make-overs, and the models have no say in HOW they are made over. AND they are made to keep it for at least the legnth of the show. Thereby, she is telling the truth, not being a hypocrite. She did not choose this look, it was placed-upon her. And I, for one, think she looks all the better for it. She's a beautiful woman. Most def better looking than Anya (second place)...in fact, you'd have to go back as far as Laren to find someone to equal on this round.

she didn't change herself....
ANTM always gives the girls a "makeover" ...which is why she's now a blonde

TYRA HAD WHITNEY'S HAIR COLORED AND ADDED EXTENSIONS, NOT WHITNEY, GIVE THE GIRL A BREAK. I REALLY THOUGHT ANYA WOULD WIN UNTIL THEY BOTH STOMPED THE RUNWAY AND WHITNEY BLEW ANYA AWAY. GO WHITNEY!!!

wow you guys are really making something out of nothing here, from what I saw she never tried to lose weight to fit in with her competition. As for changing her hair color and wearing a slimming dress, that's how it is in modeling, you must look the way your clients want you to look like and wear what designers want you to wear.
