The girls got to know each other quickly. Chris, bless her heart, tried to make small talk with Ann. Ann told Chris that her dream man would be a sixty year-old, fire-breathing, sushi-making warlock. Kayla told the girls that she’s a lesbian, and then she told the camera that she wants to win because there’s never been a lesbian ANTM champion. Come on. It’s not like being a lesbian prevents someone from winning. What’s next, “I’d really like to be the first ANTM winner from Arkansas”?
The best part of this shoot was that I learned lots of new words to use when making fun of the model wannabes…just kidding! Sort of. Esther chose “weirdo”, which kind of seemed like a cop-out. Everyone gets called a weirdo at some point. Rhianna chose “stupid”, Lexie chose “elf ears”, and Kacey chose “oreo” because people used to make fun of her for “acting white” (a pet peeve of mine).
Jane chose “big head” as her bully word, and then chose “big square face” as her power word. Umm…perhaps she should have been the one painted with stupid? Pretty sure her negative and positive words were almost exactly the same. Terra’s word was “soup cooler” because of her big lips (never heard that one before!) but maybe she should have chosen “crybaby” – she teared up at the first sign of criticism.
Liz’s word was “mutt” and she seemed to rock her shoot. She’s one of my early favorites. Ann’s word was “giant”, but it should have been awkward. Chris’s word was “bony”, but that should have been saved for the next girl, Anamaria. “Bucktooth” was her word? Try “bitch”. Seriously, that is one bitchy girl. She’s also WAY too skinny. When Jay told her to look softer she said she was trying so hard to “get lean”. Um, what? The look on her face when Jay told her that she did not need to get lean was priceless. And kind of sad, in a way. But because I hate her, I liked seeing her shaken.
Kayla had the most emotional shoot, since she’d chosen “queer” as her word. It seemed to come across in her eyes too, and I expected a great photo from her. Then Demi showed up to talk about how she used to get bullied (I half expected her to bring up Miley Cyrus) and that was a wrap!
Lexie: Elf Ears/Unique
I loved Lexie’s photo. I wasn’t sure what to expect from her, but her face and pose looked great.
Kacey: Oreo/Nubian Queen
I liked Kacey’s photo, but I didn’t like that you couldn’t see her face very well. Still, I like Kacey’s look in person and I think she has potential.
Jane: Big Face/Big Square Head
Again, why were her two words the same? Her photo was decent, and I can definitely see potential.
I loved loved loved her photo. She squeaked out an explanation for the judges on why the shoot was emotional for her, but the photo did the real talking.
Liz: Mutt/Biracial Beauty
Loved it. How hot is she? I find her very different and strong looking. Her photo was tough and beautiful at the same time.
That body!! Esther is gorgeous, but her photo was awkward.
Weak words, weak photos. Kendal has a strong face and an amazing figure, she should have delivered more.
Sarah looked so amazing on the runway, but her photo looked very amateur.
Terra: Soup Cooler/Luscious Lips
I didn’t like Terra’s shot. I wanted to, but there was something about the way she pulled her strap away from her body that felt very MySpace profile pic.
Chris’s photo was better than her sister’s, but it was still only average.
I didn’t remember Chelsey’s shoot. In fact, I barely remembered Chelsey. But that was one damn good photo.
Again, I thought Rhianna looked ugly in her photo! Why are her photos always shot looking up her nose? Disappointing.
Anamaria: Bucktooth/Sexy Mouth
Damn. I wanted her to have a terrible photo, but it was actually OK. Tyra revealed, however, that she’d chosen the photo because it was the only one where Anamaria didn’t look grotesquely skinny. OK, she didn’t put it like that, but whatevs. Point is, she was right.
Wow! I did not expect Ann to produce such a phenomenal shot. The girl in the photo looked nothing like the girl standing in front of the panel.
So who deserved to go? I wanted Anamaria out. She’s too skinny, too arrogant and too annoying. But would that be enough? There were girls with weaker photos, like Esther, Kendal, Sarah, Terra and Rhianna. Who deserved to be called first? Kayla – but Liz, Lexie, Chelsey and Ann also had fantastic photos.
And best photo went to…Ann! I liked Kayla’s better, but Ann had a great shot. The other girls got called one by one, until it came down to Terra and Anamaria. In the end, Tyra did the right thing – she gave Terra a second chance and sent Anorexic Anamaria home. There are a bunch of reasons not to feel bad for Anamaria. She’s a bitch. She admitted that she used to be heavier/healthier and is on a calorie restricted diet, so her body is not naturally skeletal. Tyra sent Anamaria packing with the advice to eat some avacado. Do you she made the right choice?
Next week is makeover week! My favorite! I can’t wait to see what Tyra will do to the girls and which ones will cry.
