LOS ANGELES, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- UPN's hit reality show "America's Next Top Model" now offers its winners a modeling deal -- something making earlier winners rue their timing.
Unlike winners of the show when it began in 2003, today's winners will get a deal with Ford Models and a $100,000 CoverGirl contract, as well as the spread in Elle, Zap2it.com reported Friday.
Previous winners, like Adrianne Curry who won in July 2003, are reportedly a tad miffed that their success came just a bit too early.
"I'm not shocked that she feels that way," says "Top Model" creator Tyra Banks.
"We can only do so much. Adrianne, after the show, was extremely successful. She was a fan favorite. Everywhere she went people were hounding her for her autograph."
