Meet the models of 'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 16

If you check out Wednesday's Season 16 premiere of "America's Top Model," you might mistake it for an episode of ABC's obstacle course reality show "Wipeout." After an awkward photo shoot, the model wannabes strut on a watery runway while encased in giant plastic bubbles. The new season has the usual list of international fashionistas, photographers and designers, as well as Tyra Banks doing her thang. The photo gallery has the 14 contestants, including two from Illinois. Who do you predict will win? Come back and comment after the season premiere, airing at 7 p.m. Feb. 23 on CW.
