UPDATE: Smize, everybody, he did it! The ANTM series finale came down to Nyle DiMarco vs. Mamé Adjei and Nyle won it all, despite Mame's killer final runway walk. Mikey and Lacey were cut before the runway, although they still walked in the show, along with the other eliminated Cycle 22 models and the hotness of Cycle 21 winner Keith Carlos. And that's it. From now on, no one is still in the running toward becoming America's Next Top Model. Sniff. But The CW should still do a special all-winners competition to determine the TOP top model. Please?

Original post:

You wanna be on top ... for the last time? Better tune in to "America's Next Top Model" tomorrow (Friday, December 4) at 9 p.m. on The CW for the Cycle 22 Finale Part 2.

This is not just the final episode of the season/cycle, it's the final one for the series. After a dozen years and 22 cycles, Tyra Banks's babies are booching and tooching for the last time.

So who wins: Lacey Rogers, 18, of Arkansas; Mamé Adjei, 23, of Maryland; Mikey Heverly, 26, of Florida; or Nyle DiMarco, 25, of our dreams Washington, D.C.? Better be Nyle. Just saying. And not because he's the first (and only) deaf contestant on ANTM. He's just perfect.

The previous episode left fans on the cliffhanger of Tyra poised to cut one guy and one girl from the final four, leaving just two finalists competing in the end. Nye and Lacey had gotten close all season, and Mame and Mikey had started flirting, but there's no guarantee that that's how the twosomes break down on the finale. But a Nyle/Lacey or Nyle/Mame finale would be great. No disrespect to Mikey and his amazing hair, but...

Anyway, who are you rooting for to win the whole thing? And will you miss ANTM? In case you want to read it again, here's Tyra Banks's farewell to her series, posted when the news came out that Cycle 22 would be the last:

TYRA MAIL! Thinking #ANTM #cycle22 should be our last cycle. Yeah, I truly believe it's time. Our diehard fans know we've expanded the definition of beauty, presented what Flawsome is, tooched and booched and boom boom boomed, shown the world how to show their neck, rocked couture/catalogue/commercial poses, have found our (and your) light, strutted countless runways, gone on tons of go-sees, added guys to the girls mix, and have traveled around the globe and back again. Yeah, it's time. It really is. Wow, I am SO proud of what Top Model has done. #ANTM brought the intimidating modeling world to the masses. We were the first reality show based in the fashion world. I never thought my little idea would have people everywhere thinking differently about how they take photos. And I never thought we'd do 22 cycles. Whoa! So many!!! And what rhymes with 22? You. And you and you and you and you! YOU made Top Model what it is. We are a global force that has so many international versions around the world because of YOU! That's amazing and beyond anything that I ever dreamed. I set out to create a show where Perfect is Boring. So I hope you continue to love your freckles, your moles, your big forehead, your big eyes, your small eyes, your pointy chin, your tiny boobs, your full chest, your ivory or ebony skin (or every color in between) - the stuff about you that makes you well...you. And I hope you've learned a heck of a lot from watching. I have an inkling you have. May your photos (and selfies) be forever fierce. May you always find your light. And may you werk hallways like runways. Always remember, you are beautiful & BOOTYful. And please, keep on Smizing each and every day for TyTy. Fierce & Love, 💛Tyra
