ANTM's Lisa D'Amato on Being the Target of Her Season & Horrible Experience on 'The Tyra Banks Show'

Lisa D'Amato steps Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef to tell all about America's Next Top Model and what she's been up to since. Listen now.

Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef: Lisa D'Amato (America's Next Top Model - Tells All on Tyra, The Show, & Shark Tank) - Part I:

Lisa D’Amato, from America’s Next Top Model, steps Behind The Rope. Holding nothing back, Lisa is here to tell it all. Starting her modeling career at the young age of twelve, Lisa learned many of the tricks of the trade, which would later help her when she applied to America’s Next Top Model on a dare. That worked out well and Lisa soon found herself on Cycle Five of the hit Reality Show, competing for the affection and approval of one Miss Tyra Banks. Lisa chats about what living in the model house was really like, the competitiveness of her fellow model contestants and the pressure she felt from producers while filming. She chats about ANTM judges Miss J, Nigel Barker, Twiggy and last, but certainly not least, Janice Dickinson as well as about Creative Director Jay Manuel. Lisa confirms and debunks many of the vicious rumors heard over the years about the tension on the set and the “my way or the highway” rumored attitude of Tyra Banks. Leaving no detailed spared, Lisa explains how she felt she was treated by Tyra and Producers, the good, the bad, the other. There was a lot of bad and a lot of other. We discuss! She chats about her status as “fan favorite” once the show aired, largely in part due to her outspoken nature. That outspoken nature found her back on ANTM, this time "All Stars”, Cycle Seventeen, which she won. She chats abut how life changed as a result of winning ANTM and what came next. That next eventually included her Dare-U-Go! product pitch on Shark Tank, where she got a deal with the one and only Miss Barbara Corcoran. She takes us behind the scenes of Shark Tank and all the shenanigans taking place behind the scenes off camera.
