  • America's Next Top Model strutted its stuff for an impressive 22 seasons over 12 years,

  • and Tyra Banks' reality competition kickstarted busy entertainment careers for many of its

  • leggy alumni.

  • But not every contestant has walked a pretty path to fashion and fortune.

  • And some look much different than their on-screen portfolios.

  • Here are the Top Model stars who look so much different now.

  • Jael Strauss

  • Cycle 8 contestant Jael Strauss seemed fresh-faced and fierce on camera in 2007, but the years

  • following her appearance were plagued by drug addiction and homelessness.

  • Fans were shocked when a haggard, nearly unrecognizable Strauss appeared on Dr. Phil in 2012.

  • Her family's tumultuous, televised intervention encouraged Strauss to seek professional help

  • for her addiction to crystal meth, cocaine, and painkillers.

  • She completed rehab and, according to her Facebook, began working at Resolution Gardens

  • landscaping company in Austin, Texas.

  • Renee Alway

  • Renee Alway was another young contestant on Cycle 8 whose success ended once the cameras

  • stopped rolling.

  • Alway became addicted to painkillers and heroin and lost her home and custody of her three

  • children as a result of her drug use.

  • Her most publicized post-show spread was a mugshot after her arrest in Palm Springs in

  • 2013.

  • Alway pled guilty to felony counts of burglary, vehicle theft, and possession of a firearm

  • and a misdemeanor count of identify theft.

  • She was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

  • In hopes of deterring others from following in her footsteps, Alway conducted an interview

  • from prison, sporting a standard-issue jumpsuit and shaved head, and spoke about her post-show

  • destruction.

  • She explained that her inability to get work after the show was the start of her downfall.

  • "I felt like a failure because I couldn't I couldn't get past the reality TV stigma

  • that had been put on me."

  • Though Alway connects her downfall to the shows, she also assumes responsibility for

  • her decisions.

  • "But there's plenty of girls who who were eliminated and they're doing just fine.

  • So, obviously I made choices that brought me here as well."

  • Cassi Van Den Dungen

  • Australia's version of America's Next Top Model led to the discovery of model Cassi

  • Van Den Dungen, who, at just 16, became runner-up Down Under in 2009.

  • The working-class youngster earned significant success walking for major fashion houses,

  • including Calvin Klein and Miu Miu, but she shocked the industry with her skeletal appearance

  • on the catwalk during Australian Fashion Week in 2014.

  • The designer, Alex Perry, publicly apologized for booking her on his runway and claimed

  • he was bothered by her waifish appearance as well.

  • "I looked at, I looked at that footage and I recoil from it and the images, um, that

  • it, it's not the image that I, um, think is a good one to, to put forward."

  • A defensive Van Den Dungen fired back via Instagram by posting a quote that read:

  • "I think a lot of overweight girls are hypocrites.

  • I'm naturally tall and skinny, I eat what I want, I don't starve myself, and I am beautiful.

  • So why are you allowed to love your 'curves' but it's wrong for me to love my 'bones'?"

  • The pair didn't stay at odds too long, because In 2016, Perry hired Van Den Dungen again

  • to model for his Resort 2017 collection.

  • Amanda Swafford

  • Cycle 3 contestant Amanda Swafford was a judge favorite for her flawless photographs and

  • icy eyes, but financial struggles have taken a toll on her CoverGirl face.

  • In 2014, Swafford launched a GoFundMe campaign asking for $5,000 to replace a missing front

  • tooth.

  • She explained her distress by writing:

  • "If I had money like that I would have replaced my glasses when they broke two years ago and

  • started a savings account for my son to go to college or buy a car to drive his blind

  • mom around."

  • Swafford reportedly broke her nose and knocked out another tooth in early 2015.

  • She eventually appeared to have her tooth repaired, and her signature sweetness was

  • intact.

  • Bello Sanchez

  • Cycle 22 competitor Bello Sanchez also turned to crowdfunding for a little financial assistance

  • after he was injured in a traffic accident in California in October 2015.

  • Sanchez revealed that was on his way home after a long day of fashion shows when he

  • "fell asleep at the wheel."

  • Sanchez posted a photo of his bloody face next to a request for $30,000.

  • One thing that remained intact after the incident, of course, was his pair of signature blue

  • eyes.

  • He since appears to have recovered from his ailments.

  • Lisa D'Amato

  • Lisa D'Amato, winner of America's Next Top Model: All Stars, mangled her face on the

  • set of an indie film called Cowboys and Indians in 2013 when she fell while attempting a handstand.

  • D'Amato shared the gruesome damage which was done to her prized face, before and after

  • her reconstructive surgery, and they were not suitable for the squeamish.

  • "I split my nose open from here to here.

  • Like if you cut it right down the center you can fold it, you can open it up and see inside

  • of my brain."

  • Even though her nose has now changed, she's called the obstacle an opportunity and has

  • gone on to become the face of a skincare campaign as well as launching her music career in electro

  • hip hop.

  • She also returned to reality TV with her doomsday prepper husband for Marriage Boot Camp: Reality

  • Stars.

  • Denzel Wells

  • Annnnd then there's this guy.

  • Cycle 21's Denzel Wells was given a beard weave during the makeover episode.

  • And he was stuck with the costume shop scruff for the rest of the season.

  • Viewers lost their minds at the site of Wells' faux follicles.

  • It became a character all its own, consistently taking top honors in every ridiculous meme,

  • list, and blog associated with the show.

  • As soon as it was done, though, he ditched the hairy appliance and now woos the ladies

  • with a trim, authentic goatee as "Travis" on Tyler Perry's soap opera If Loving You

  • is Wrong.

  • Smart choice, dude.
