Krista’s win gives Top Model 14 its best ratings since last fall

Krista White defeated Raina Hein to become America’s next next next next next next next next next next next next next next top model, as she won the 14th cycle of America’s Next Top Model on Wednesday.

Krista told E! News that “I’ve been auditioning for this show since I was 18 in 2003 when it first started.” Television Without Pity has a quick recap if you care to find out why Tyra chose Krista.

While only 3.77 million people watched the finale, it was the highest-rated among The CW’s target audience of women ages 18 to 34 since last fall’s premiere of the 13th season, which explains why The CW keeps this show around.

Earlier this week, Entertainment Weekly used its access to spoil the final two and thus the first hour of the two-hour finale in a preview for the finale.
