Following the airing of the finale, there was mass speculation surrounding why Angelea Preston was disqualified. Due to the final panel and winner reveal being re-filmed, it was highly speculated that Angelea had been crowned the original winner.
In January 2013, Angelea confirmed that she had in fact been crowned the original winner of the cycle. She also confirmed that the popular theory, that she was stripped of her title due to revealing her win before the finale episode was aired, was not true.
Later in September 2014, Angelea finally revealed that the reason she was stripped of the title was because she had worked as an escort prior to participating in the show. She added that the producers had been aware of this before filming, but she was ultimately disqualified anyway. A popular theory is that her disqualification had more to do with CoverGirl, with many believing that they were not made aware of Angelea being an escort until after she had won, and that due to this they did not want her to represent their brand, which therefore gave the producers no other choice but to disqualify her and select another winner.
Angelea eventually filed a lawsuit against the producers, the network, and the studios due to breach of contract for $3,000,000 in damages.
In Angelea Preston's lawsuit against the show, it stated that the show had violated fair labor practices by forcing her and other contestants to work 16-hour days, sometimes without a meal break, keeping the contestants in isolation for five to six hours at a time, without food or water.
- This is the only cycle to not feature a completely new batch of contestants.
- Cycles 3, 6, 7 and 8 were not represented. However, Jade Cole from Cycle 6 was offered to participate in the cycle, but declined because she thought her contract was "bogus and one-sided".
