Viewers craving more model mayhem can go online to access photo galleries of Tyra, the girls and the judges as well as participate in interactive message boards, play a "Top Model"-themed flip and match virtual reality game and watch additional footage of "America's Next Top Model Obsessed."

For those uninitiated, this season hit a new high in drama and storytelling when one of the 14 contestants revealed she's transgender in the first episode. During the season, the girls also raised issues about discrimination, battled with body image, threw temper tantrums in front of the judges and even went as far as to flash the judges on the runway!

NBC Universal acquired the exclusive cable rights to all seasons of the groundbreaking reality competition series "America's Next Top Model" in September 2008, including the show's 12th season now in production and repeat airings of any future cycles beyond.
