In 2016–2017, the model appeared in the twenty-third cycle of VH1’s America’s Next Top Model, where she competed against thirteen other contestants. At the final deliberation in the season finale, she beat fellow competitor Tatiana Price, becoming the twenty-third winner of America’s Next Top Model.
Following her win on America’s Next Top Model, Gants signed a contract with Major Model Management in Milan. She is also signed with Ford Models in New York City. Gants also started working in the music industry as a DJ.
Among model India Gants’ prizes for winning America’s Next Top Model were a talent contract with VH1, a fashion spread in Paper magazine and a $100,000 contract with Rimmel London cosmetics. She earned the most First Call-Outs in her respective cycle, with a total of 5
Lack of branding became one of the core criticisms India Gants faced during her tenure on VH1’s musically enriched reboot of the reality competition America’s Next Top Model. Despite her hair transformation from blond to purple, the judges couldn’t quite figure out the answer to “who is India?”
When it came down to the final showdown between Gants, the 20-year-old Seattle native, versus self-proclaimed boss (and eventual runner-up) Tatiana Price, Tyra Banks briefly returned to help the show’s new host, Rita Ora, make the crowning decision. For once, Gants wasn’t compared to her doppelganger: Zayn’s supermodel bae Gigi Hadid. Instead, her ability to be a high-fashion model without an apparent personality reminded the veteran host of Kendall Jenner (consequently making Price the situation’s Kylie). What the current winner of America’s Next Top Model didn’t reveal to the judges — which would have only strengthened her case — is that she’s a “music enthusiast.”
