They just did a casting call here for the next cycle, I'd love to see a local girl!  Chelsea from the last cycle was from nearby and I really wanted her to win.

So, thoughts?

 

I really like Britni and Molly.  Definitely my favorites at this point. 

 

Why is there always a girl who thinks she has the whole thing in the bag because she has experience?  Do they not watch the show before they go on and see that that girl always gets booted early on?

I like dominique's face (those freckles!) so I'm glad she won a reprieve....

 

I liked the photo shoot....the pictures were beautiful.

 

I am not sure if I like how they started it - tricking BOTH sets of girls seemed awfully unfair - especially the ones that really did go home

Subbing- just got to watch it tonight.  That runway challenge was ridiculous!!  Not only on a 12 inch runway, but over water, and IN A HUGE PLASTIC BUBBLE???  And the audience just laughing as they humiliated themselves by falling in and floundering all over,  oh my!!

 

Tyra looks great this season! 

 

The backstage photos were great, love how they were not as posey.  I think Kasia def. had the weakest photo; she should have been out based on that, and her walk was weird.

I am in.  No front runners for me yet - although some are more memorable than others.

I'm watching. I'm SO glad they started it the way they did this year without all the hoopla leading up to the top 14. I also felt bad for the girls who were tricked into thinking they made it. How mean!

i agree about the 14 that didn't make it!  my sister had an interesting thought though... maybe they're already models and were in on it?  that makes me feel a little bit better!

This show is starting to wear on me.  I don't know how much longer I can stand watching it.  The first episode was mean.  Tricking the girls was not cool and neither was making them walk in a bubble on a 12" runway.  Ridiculous.  I thought the whole draw a picture workshop was cheesy.  "You have a baby face!"  *sobs* It is delusional to think that this is something to cry about in the real world.  Maybe I'm just old and cynical.  LOL.

DD and I could not watch that part. We turned it off.  It is the only time I have turned off ANTM.  I do not really like to see a bunch of strangers confronting their issues on TV.  I don't think it is a bad idea (to have the girl confront their inner critics before the modelling season really begins)  - I just do not want to see it.

I didn't really enjoy the "inner voice" session either. 

 

Can I just say that I really dislike Alexandria? 

 

Next week is makeovers!  That's always a great episode.

oh I actually thought this activity was meaningful and helpful to them... and it may have brought them closer too? hopefully b/c that might mean less fighting in the house...

I really wish Alexandria would take some crappy pictures and they'd send her home.  I'm sure she'll stick around just for the drama factor though.

Oh yes, Alexandria is not a favorite of mine for sure.  She'll stick around for awhile I bet like Melrose did way back when.

Tyra told her to stop stirring things up...I'm trying to remember if she usually gets involved like that right away?

I don't think Tyra has ever gotten into the mix this early in the game.  Alexandria just makes her look bad I think (by association), which is probably why she said something.  I was surprised she didn't go home this week. 

 

I can't wait for the weave girl (I'm still lost on names lol) to get that thing cut out.  It is so ugly!  Plus, it looks like it weighs 20 lbs on her tiny little head.  LOL.

Ok so Brittani's meltdown at panel?  Just bizarre.  It does make me feel a little bit for Alexandria, but I still don't like her and she's totally in the "poor me" phase.  Which is actually working for her with the judges.

 

I'm still liking Molly, Jacklyn, and Kasia.  Brittani was one of  my favorites, but kind of lost me a little after this week's episode.  I'm curious to see if she can straighten it out or if it'll all just explode on her.

I was kind of surprised that Tyra didn't go all postal on her like she did on that one season. She had the crazy eyes out and I really thought it was coming, but nope.  Brittani needs to just keep her trap shut during the photo shoots or she's done for, which would be too bad because she seems fairly talented.

 

I really like Molly now that she has the weave out.

Was Brittani calling Alexandria out during the photo shoot worse than Alexandria DIRECTING the photo shoots twice?  IMO it isn't, but it seems like Tyra doesn't know about those.  I think they've picked Alexandria as their favourite & that's why they haven't said anything to her about those incidents at panel.

I don't think it was either, but since Alexandria IS a favorite Brittani needs to pull it together and act like a mature woman and not a little girl and take consistently better photos than her.

I think starting a fight with someone in front of the client is worse than trying to direct.  

 

I do think Brittanni is a good model - so hopefully this is a one off. I think she might just be immature.   As a model, Alexandria does not do it for me.

but when she is trying to direct she is telling the client what she thinks it should look like.

So, who watched last night? 

 

It seems that Alexandria is on a roll.  I have to say that I am liking Molly less and less every week.  And, i feel like such an old prude...the fact that they had to bleep out every other word out of her mouth was a little offputting to me.  censored.gif

Every word you said.

 

I was sad to see Jacqueline go - but it was a tough week. They were all good.
