Top Model has its shortest, youngest winner yet in Nicole Fox

Nicole Fox is America’s next next next next next next next next next next next next next top model, winning the short model cycle of America’s Next Top Model.

She joined other winners in near-immediate obscurity and non-top model status after beating Laura Kirkpatrick in a final runway show involving wind, rain, and other elements, such as previously eliminated models and a few seconds of Eddie Murphy, whose daughter Bria was a model in the show. (Correction: Bria was not a contestant.)

By the way, Nicole is both the youngest winner ever, at 18, and the second Nicole to win the show, following season five’s Nicole Linkletter.
