We've wondered before if anyone on America's Next Top Model could truly become a fashion industry staple. Gemma Ward managed to turn a few seconds on Australia's Search for a Supermodel into her break, but so far, the only one who's gotten bigger thanks to ANTM is Tyra Banks. That might change next season, when Samantha Francis hits New York. You might remember Samantha as the lithe, blithe girl who got eliminated in Top Model's second episode... the one who actually looked like a model. And though Tyra didn't feel Samantha had Top Model potential, Elite models recently signed her to their new faces board. Ironically, that's where she joins Jaslene, whose Top Model prize is an Elite contract! Let's see if Samantha can break the Top Model curse... we're not into betting, but it does seem to be a great year for those booted from reality TV.
