ANTM finalist is Creepy-chan, a 4chan web meme

If you’ve ever talked television with me, you know that I’m a big fan of America’s Next Top Model. Cycle 12 just ended this week, and one of the finalists was a girl named Allison Harvard. As I do with every ANTM cycle, I googled the contestants—and found out that Allison used to be a web meme on 4chan, the image bulletin board started by my buddy Moot that is notorious for anime porn. Allison used to be known as Creepy-chan, and she posted all these crazy photos of herself looking like a strange bird.

Tyra does not know this (or maybe she does) but this season, thanks to Creepy-chan, her show transcended the closet-girly-girl-guilty-pleasure audience and gave web geeks something to get excited over every week. One more really creepy photo and a photo from ANTM after the jump.

  1. CULTURE SHOCK!!What do you hate people to do when they visit your home? How do you keep your cool when things go wrong at home with visitors? You don’t have to say a word. I came across this funny book HOUSE RULES which contains Different rules for different homes at XLIBRIS book store online. http://www.xlibris.com/HouseRules.html. Get one Try it. It is VERY VERY FUNNY. This book does all the talking. WHAT IS YOUR FUNNY HOUSE RULE THAT EVERYONE MUST OBEY?http://tryhouserules.blogspot.com

  2. I’m pretty sure she was quite unaware of her title and popularity on 4chan. I loved Allison for her quirkiness and I rooted for her every step of the way. I was really surprised she made it as far as she did!
