It was a battle between “Abandonment Issues” (Molly) and “Panic Attacks” (Brittani) on Wednesday night’s season finale of “Top Model”—and guess what?! “Panic Attacks” triumphed!

Despite her catastrophic fall in the Vivienne Westwood “Anglo-Mania” runway show, Brittani took the crown as Cycle 16’s Top Model with her asymmetric looks and glowing enthusiasm.

“I can’t even believe it! Everything I’ve ever done has finally paid off,” the 19-year-old Pennsylvanian exclaimed in tears, donning her new boy cut. (Yes, Miss Tyra Banks tortured the gals one last time and did an impromptu hair-chopping for panel.)

But like most Top Models, Brittani’s way up to Numero Uno wasn’t without a few hiccups. Besides having to deal with anxiety issues and crying at a drop of a dime, the 5’10 ½” brunette was also famous for verbally attacking Alpha Model Alexandria and thereby turning off Queen Tyra for a spell. However, she quickly redeemed herself with a change of attitude and wowed the judges time and time again with her versatile photos and “you’re-jealous-of-me” runway walk.

So what did she win? If you haven’t already memorized it yet, here you go: An IMG Model contract, a spread in Vogue Italia, a cover in Beauty in Vogue, a feature in, and a $100K Cover Girl Cosmetics contract.

We think it’s safe to say her trailer park days are over.
