As is the pattern of America’s Next Top Model, we begin this episode with the models coming to grips with the loss of another model. Heather’s taking Sarah’s eviction hard and discusses that with Bianca. Lisa discusses feeling the pressure of doing well. She knows that in the world of Top Model, one day you’re in, and the next. Oh, wait, that’s the other show. Sorry about that. TyraMail indicates to the girls that they are about to get schooled. And, really, who seems to do most of the schooling these days? That’s right, Benny Ninja! They give Benny some […]
Well, great. I just get in the groove of watching America’s Next Top Model and blogging about it on Wednesdays when I get handed down the assignment of also blogging about Project Runway. Great. Guess who’s not getting anything done around the house on Wednesday nights. Glad I’ve got yoga so I can at least get centered before the backstabbing begins. Project Runway premieres tonight, people. Bravo has a ‘preview’ up on their site. They’ve also got videos of all of our lucky victims, I mean, contestants. I dare you to watch them all & count the Madonna references. The […]
I’ve decided that nothing makes the America’s Next Top Model viewing experience better than a big tray of nachos. Especially an episode where weight, Sarah’s weight or lack thereof is a major discussion thread. You begin to say to yourself “Yeah, she should weigh more to be a plus-sized model.” Crunch, crunch, crunch — see, it works. So we begin this episode rehashing the last, of course. The girls are still in shock over Ebony’s voluntary departure. She didn’t even have to cut her hair off & she still wanted out. This conversation detailing Ebony’s misgivings about the competition segues […]
by WindUpDoll Ok, ANTM fans. Were you as disappointed as I was when you sat down to watch last night’s episode only to find a recap — a RECAP — episode? Have we gotten that far to warrant a recap show? Personally, I didn’t think so.
We begin this week’s modeliciousness with Ebony. A collage of Ebony pondering all the different ways the judges do not like her. We then cut to Ambreal talking to her dad on the phone. I’m sure these two girls discussing their respective fates has nothing to do with what will surely come later in the episode. I do a little superior dance that I will not be a casualty to Top Model‘s obtuseness. OMG! OMG! It’s Tyson Beckford! Sorry, I just turned into a 12-year-old zitty girl with glasses & bad posture. Just like the rest of the Top Models! […]
“It’s not a good feeling, to be in the bottom two.” Were truer words ever spoken? Thank you, Saleisha. Hey, kids, they’ve thrown in a bunch of scenes that happen every cycle of America’s Next Top Model. The girls are living in a sty & someone (Janet) ‘organizes’ them. One model (in this cycle, Heather) gives her assessment of all the other girls. One model (Lisa, in this case) talks about how she overthinks everything. And, one model has a blonde moment “Spring forward? Fall back? Is it that time already?” Benny Ninja tells the girls he’s an expert at […]
So we’ve arrived at the makeover episode of America’s Next Top Model. To me, this one started off slow. I also need to recommend to the producers of America’s Next Top Model that they could maybe give their graphic artists more than 5 minutes to create ‘after’ images of each girl. You see, they used this ‘software’ to morph a picture of each girl from her current look to her new, amazing, Top Model-y look. It reminded me of a VH1 (which I don’t really watch that often, I swear) little cartoon thing they used to do during the credits […]
Oh yes, my friends, it’s time to start talking America’s Next Top Model. Why now, you may ask? Hasn’t the show been on for a couple of weeks? Yes, yes it has. But that, my friends, was a warm up to what is arguably, consistently, the best episode of America’s Next Top Model every season: the makeover episode. I mean, really, do you EVER remember the first couple of girls who get knocked out of the competition? I know I watch repeats on VH1 & say to myself: “Oh, yeah, that’s the one who got the boot first.” Sad, but […]
