Yay Alphie for making my thread suggestion come true! You're the best!
Yoanna from cycle 2 is by far my favorite winner, followed closely by Jaslene from cycle 8. Love them both!
Favorite contestants in general would be Kahlen (cycle 4), Joanie and Danielle (both on 6), and Jessica (9). I definitely prefer the earlier cycles over the newer ones, but I've still watched all 12 seasons faithfully.
I haven't watched tonight's episode yet, it's saved on my DVR though. This cycle I really like Alison and London, but I have no idea how far they'll go. Alison has been in the bottom quit a few times, and the judges made a comment about London putting on weight, so who knows what will happen.
