Security and secrecy are high for the America’s Next Top Model cast and crew right now, as they wrap filming on Cycle 14 in New Zealand, and residents, reporters and fans continue to clamor for any sightings of Banks and her entourage.

Last week, one photographer from the New Zealand Herald was successful in spying on two of the aspiring models presumed to be finalists in the upcoming season of America’s Next Top Model, catching a shot of them leaning over the balcony of what is presumed to be their home during their stay on the North Shore of the island.

Check out what the Herald had to say about the rich accommodations, plus the photo of the two bikini-clad models!

At least one top-secret Auckland location for the America’s Next Top Model contestants has been revealed as a multi-million-dollar penthouse suite on the North Shore.

Despite the production crew trying to keep their whereabouts under wraps, a couple of bikini-clad models were spied peering over the balcony of the $11 million Sentinel Apartment pad in Milford yesterday.

It is rumoured the apartment – which includes a lap pool, spa pool, gas fireplace and home movie theatre – is where the models are staying while in Auckland to film cycle 14 of the top-rating reality show.

The photo doesn’t show much about these models’ specific looks, but here it is anyway:

If these women are indeed some of Tyra’s trainees, they are staying in one of the swankiest New Zealand set-ups, on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Here’s a photo of The Sentinel, where their apartment is located. They didn’t name it the ‘Sentinel’ for nothing. That view looks unrivaled!

Now that we’ve seen how she pampers her models, we’ll just have to wait and see how Tyra turns around and torments the Cycle 14 contestants during their photo shoots and eliminations. Can’t wait!
