I was thinking...How much does the timing of which Cycle a girl is on affect her overall placement in the competition?
For example, if Joanie was on Cycle Seven instead of Cycle Six, I think she would have won...Had she been on cycle 1-4, I think she would have been an early to mid-season elimination because of Janice and her distaste for older/curvier contestants.
I think if Toccara was on season eight or nine, she would have won. With all the recent scandal about Tyra's weight gain, a plus-sized winner has a much higher chance of winning now than in the past.
Any other thoughts?
