Tears, tantrums and really scary haircuts make this runway reality show, produced by Tyra Banks, UPN's guiltiest pleasure. A guide to the final six:

APRIL WILKNER, 23 An account executive, the half-Japanese NYU grad (with a 3.9 GPA) earned raves for her underwater shoot.

MERCEDES SCELBA-SHORTE, 22 A judges' favorite, she recently opened up about battling the chronic immune disease lupus.

YOANNA HOUSE, 23 Before landing on Model, the fashion fiend hired a personal trainer to slash her weight from 176 lbs. to 134.

SARA RACEY-TABRIZI, 23 She kept Model a secret from her Iranian-born dad but showed her sexy side impersonating Angelina Jolie.

SHANDI SULLIVAN, 21 The gangly Kansas City, Mo., Walgreen's clerk blossoms in front of the camera but butchers her runway walk.

CAMILLE MCDONALD, 26 The Howard University student's attitude has her roomies baring their claws; one calls her "Cruella de Vil."
