To prepare ourselves for the crazy, perhaps catastrophic premiere of America's Next Top Model: All Stars, let's familiarize ourselves with the contestants. We know a lot about these ladies from their time on the show, but what have they accomplished since then? What mysterious mystical force convinced them to take another shot at the much-coveted and often laughed-at title? Was it Tyra?
Some of these questions will be answered throughout this week, when we take a look back at the lives of these All-Star contestants. We'll also highlight a few of their best moments on America's Next Top Model.
It's Creepy-chan time! Let's find out more about the girl morbidly fascinated by nosebleeds, Allison Harvard.

Here's Allison back for America's Next Top Model: All-Stars, no longer shy and a little less creepy.
Back in Cycle 12, Allison blew the judges away with her unique, doll-like look. She was the first to win a challenge, and performed consistently well throughout the competition. But while she struggled with versatility, she managed to improve. This led her to become the runner-up that season, much to the delight of awkward girls worldwide.
She's been quite an Internet celebrity since, owing to her artworks
and her own Know Your Meme
episode. Allison also has a video called "Fake Blood"
, because we all know how much she loves that. And the real thing, too.
Though signed with Nous Model Management in Los Angeles, she hasn't been working full-time in the fashion industry as a model. She's been freelancing, getting commissions for her paintings and ads. Well, we all know she joined Top Model because of her passion for art and photography. That's why we're not surprised about her desire to be behind the camera instead.
But now she's back in front of it as one of our favorite contestants. Who isn't ecstatic to see our dear Allison waiting for Tyra's nose to bleed instead of waiting tables somewhere
(which might not even be true)?
Check back tomorrow as we look at another contestant from America's Next Top Model All-Stars. And set your calendars for the show's premiere on September 14.
