Whitney Thompson entered America’s Next Top Model as this season’s heaviest model. She told the judges, in her initial meeting with them, that she had curves and was proud of it. She was determined to make it to the finale without compromising who she was as a person. Though Whitney photographed well, the judges constantly wondered about her ability to be sincere and show who she really was as a person. She had her ups and downs throughout the season, but Whitney always prevailed, and made it all the way to the final two. She became the show’s first full figured model to win the competition. Here’s a look back at her photos throughout the season.
