Yeah, good point! I was thinking that, too! No one would have looked at the clothes, they would have only been seeing the falling and stumbling. Stupid!

I couldn't believe they didn't even let them practice. Kacey did good, but her dress was also much shorter than everyone else's, which had to help.

I agree, that was the most ridiculous challenge. the dresses were actually really beautiful (not crazy like what they normally have them modeling) and you couldn't even focus on them. what is the point in having a model fall all over the place and you can't even see the dress. Just like that roller coaster challenge the other week, how are the supposed to do an emotion or a certain "face" with the wind blowing in their faces and being forced back like that? Liz won b/c she was the only one whose face just happened to not be completely contorted. Just ridiculous.

Any thoughts on who's left?

I was a little surprised at who went home last night. I'm dying to see what ends up happening with Ann. I'd be surprised if she won it all considering how much they talk about her personality. Liz is annoying. Kayla and Chelsey are my favorites so far.

I think Kayla might win it all.

I am increasingly drawn to Ester but I do not think she will win.

Ann will be top 3 or so - Ann is great, but the quirky ones who take amazing pictures rarely win - the models have to be good overall to win.

I was not at all suprised by who went home. Kendall is gorgeous, but her pictures are boring.

Ture, but I never was all that impressed with Esther.

And why is it that every single cycle they do something with designers and there's always a few girls who have no idea who the designers are? I'm not trying to be a model and have at least heard of all of them.

I thought Kendall not knowing who Vera Wang is was really bad. I know very little about fashion - but know her.

I think the blond/brunet with long hair (Esters partner last night) might go home next. I do not even remember her name - which is not a good sign for her.

Yeah, Jane. I think you're right. She's not doing much at all and her pictures have never been great.

In BritansNTM & Australia'sNTM the quirky ones tend to win. This season, with the prizes, I could see it being more of a possibility.

I don't think Ann has too many looks though. She seems to do very very similar things each time.

I was surprised that the judges(Tyra) said that they haven't seen someone like Kendall in a long time, she looks ALOT like Kristi(I think that was her name) who won the last cycle just with long hair.

She was blah though.

I can see Kayla winning.

Chris has too much personality, she may need to reign that in a bit. She can't jump in every photoshoot.

Jane has potential but she needs a bit more teaching.

Esther is middle of the pack. She can pull it up more.

Chelsey is middle too. I hate that they widened her gap more on the makeovers, though that's more due to my own teeth issues.lol

Overall I feel all of the people they selected this time are very green, moreso than normal. They've taken too many weeks to get to okay with the odd fluke shots.

Any thoughts on who's left?  I really want Chelsey or Kayla to win it.  Ann takes good pictures, but that's all she's got.  I'm kind of surprised Jane's still in there, but I really don't think she's got enough to win it.

Ok so last night surprised me a bit.  I'm glad Chelsey's still in it though!

I was expecting Kayla and Ann or Kayla and Chelsea to be in the top two.  I expected Kayla to win.

 

I am not sure who is going to win - but I think it might be Ann.  We will see.

i think the judges have been trying to boost anne's confidence since the beginning (come on, 5 best pictures in a row?  there was at least one or two that should have been someone else!) because they decided early on they wanted her to win.  i just don't get the anne love; sure she can take a pretty picture but doesn't tyra always gone on about how it's so much more than just a pretty picture??

i think it's unfortunate that kayla was eliminated; i think she could have done well and she's shown tons of growth.  look how well she can pose with the male models now!! 

meh, i've lost interest in the finale.  i think they screwed this up!  the finals should have been chelsea and kayla.

I don't get the big deal with Ann either.  Yeah, some of her pictures are really good, but they talk so much about personality and were really hard on Jane about it.

 

I'm pretty sure Ann's gonna end up winning it at this point.  I really think it should have been Kayla and Chelsey at the end and I would have been happy either way.

The end is here!  I'm still rooting for Chelsey, but I'd be really surprised if she won it.

I watched a marathon of this over the weekend and am now watching the last show. I think Ann is going to win but I don't see the big deal about her. Not sure why either of them are in the finale.

and so ends another cycle!  I enjoyed this one more than usual, less of Tyra's theatrics which was appreciated.  I didn't think either finalist walked well on the runway at all.  Very happy for Ann, she is more high fashion, but I think it will be hard for her to adjust to a model's lifestyle.  I hope Chelsea is successful in whatever she does!
