  • Woman who boasted smallest waist in the world wins 'America's Next Top Model'

    The woman who won this season of “America’s Next Top Model” is the same contestant whose waist is so small that a male judge was able to wrap his hands around it.

    Tyra Banks, the creator and host of the show, came under fire last summer when promos for the new season showed her gushing over the woman who boasted “the tiniest waist in the world.”

    After Banks was seen praising the teen’s figure, she was forced to issue a statement explaining the promo.

    ‘In an effort to create a fun and entertaining sneak peek of the upcoming cycle, America’s Next Top Model released a trailer that was edited in a way that misconstrued our overarching message,’ Banks told People magazine.

    But after all that, contestant Ann Ward, a 6’2’’ woman with an ultra-thin figure, took home the title.

    The 19-year-old Dallas native said she was once made fun of for her appearance.

    “’All those comments about being tall and just not normal,” Ward said. “They’re going to look back and feel “I should have been so nice to that girl.”‘

    Banks has long been an advocate for size acceptance, featuring several plus size models on the popular show. She has been criticized for her own weight fluctuations, to which she told her critics in 2007, “kiss my fat a**”
