Who Will Be America’s Next Top Model?

by Ruth Anne Boulet So, based on cycle’s past, the first girl shown doing an ‘up-close-and-personal’ headshot first is the winner. That would mean that Samantha is winning this cycle. I think it’s a decoy this year. The challenge for this episode is the same — it’s a commercial shoot for Cover Girl. Mr. Jay brings out Whitney to help explain the challenge and the Cover Girl product. It freshens your breath and makes you beautiful! This time, the girls have to have their lines memorized, and they have to kiss a boy. Sam is worried about the boy having […]

It’s Time To Boot Marjorie Off ANTM

by Ruth Anne Boulet Oh, don’t get on me about spoiling things. I don’t know who’s going to actually get booted off, but boy is it ever time to give Eeyore the heave-ho. Or maybe I just don’t understand. She is European. She begins this episode by saying that she needs to calm down. Uh, yeah. Tyra’s whipping out the melodramatic music as Marjorie gets counseled by Analeigh. Even she seems over it. She’s paying more attention to the clothes she’s folding. It’s time for another Paulina lesson! How do you sell something that you don’t want to sell? First […]

ANTM Brings Some Go-See Meltdown Fun

by Ruth Anne Boulet I’d just like to note that I, unlike every other ANTM blogger I saw, did not feel the need to reference The Police hit Roxanne. It just seemed too obvious. Red light. Top 5! OMG! Top 5! It’s so great! TyraMail lets the girls know that it’s go-see time. Awesome. Time to see some lost weepy models. Each girl gets their own boat to get to 5 designers before the 5pm deadline. Based on the graphic, it looks like the girls get 4 hours total time. The girls complain about the speed of the boats. They’re […]

Where Will Tyra Send the Girls of ANTM?

by Ruth Anne Boulet Why? Why ANTM did you have to start running that creepy Bluefly.com ad? I thought I was done with that commercial with the end of Project Runway! Why torture me so? The girls, mostly Elina and Sheena, are stressed out about getting negative feedback from the judges. Elina has now decided to play the ‘I’m from Europe & you don’t understand’ card. Samantha doesn’t get it, neither do Sheena, Joslyn and McKey. We’ve got Europe vs. USA in the competition. Who will come out on top? Only Tyra knows. Yay! It’s the twirl and a-swirl twins! […]

Signature Poses Take Center Stage on ANTM

We start off this episode with Samantha and Elina having a discussion about control issues. Analeigh is now the one feeling a lack of confidence. She asks the girls if they see her as competition. They don’t answer immediately. Ouch. This week the girls have to travel to get their TyraMail in person. They’re all in this little room with black dresses. Tyra is having her photo taken to show the girls how it’s done. Tyra’s territory is the signature pose. Her signature pose is THIS (points to eyes). She’s got the fierce eyes. So now each girl gets 20 […]

ANTM Looks to Create a Beautiful Disaster

Nine girls remain on ANTM, and tonight it’s time to cut them down to eight. But first, Clark has to gloat about great it is to be on top of the heap. Samantha wants to stay around, so she’s going to work on not ticking off any designers. Marjorie is defending being nervous. They are in front of very important people at panel! Analeigh looks at Marjorie like she’s nuts. Joslyn has her own bit of insecurity, but she shares it with family instead of, you know, folks she’s competing against. Smart girl, that Joslyn. Paulina Porizkova meets the girls […]

Hannah gets the Miss Jay impression, which is never good. Samantha discusses how she’s going to rock her bow legs. Elina gets told she needs to let go. In other words, the feedback […]
