I figured they'd send Furonda home. But Jande can't win because she's too old.

I liked Joanie's poses on the leg, but I didn't like the photo they picked. Her nose looked big and her mouth looked funny. I do like her a lot though.

I think it will come down to her and Danielle. Danielle just keeps getting better and better I think. And who cares if she has a southern accent?

I'm thinking next week either Jade or Sarah will be sent home. I like Sarah, but I just don't think she'll will. I agree that it will be down to Danielle and Joanie. I do think that the southern accent doesn't work for America's next top model. The model, in theory, is supposed to be the "ideal" example of a woman. Having an accent that many people preceive as stupid is not an "ideal example". I bet if she actually works on it she can tone the accent down. I haven't seen her try, but with magical editing who knows if she actually has tried.

I was not surprised that they sent Furonda home before Jade. Jade- you love to hate her!

Wow- Joanie and Sarah had great pictures on the elephant. Maybe Sarah could be a bit more subtle about copying poises.

Poor Danielle- made me go drink some extra water!

Starr, here's a recap for you

I was sooo wishing that Jade would be going home, but I knew Furonda would go first (which is ok with me, she was getting on my nerves .


These are my predictions:
Sarah will be sent home next, leaving Jade, Danielle and Joanie for the final three.
Jade will get sent home, leaving Danielle and Joanie as top two.
Joanie will win.

it'll all come down to who can be the most *fierce* on the catwalk!

Danielle might kick Joanie's butt during the fashion show, you never know!

Now I am sad because I just realized how close we are to the end. Then what will I watch!?

did anyone else enjoy the view of Noted Fashion Photographer Nigel Barker's arms last night during the photo shoot.

I'm glad Sara is gone.

I wish someone would help Danielle with her accent! I feel like she has no idea how to talk like Tyra wants her to.

I still think Joanie will win.
can't wait for the runway show!

ugh, I hope Jade doesn't win. I think danielle will have a miraculous accent change and she'll win. But Joanie does seem to be quite determined, and I bet she can fierce.

Susana~ your right! Why don't they get Danielle help with her accent?

I kept thinking to myself as I watched the show: I wish I could like Jade. But, I don't. The judges like her pictures...and with the big runway show coming up....???

Only one more show. Oh no.

Does anyone else think Jade looked so much better before they lightened her hair? I didn't see the first several shows, but I checked out the old pics on the website, and I thought she looked so much more naturally beautiful with her hair her natural color. The lightened hair makes her look harsh. I don't like her personally, but I think she is one of the top two.

I think they need to get D a vocal coach. I have a Southern accent and when I was a theatre major it took a lot of work to get rid of my accent. They got dental help for the severe cases, they should get vocal help for her.

i agree they should get her a vocal coach. its not fair to ask her to change something thats so ingrained in her and not get her the help to do it.

and i still say jade looks liek Voldemort. any one wanna do some picture research for me???

i HATE jade!!!!! she isnt soft in any of the pictures they say she is soft in, she looks like a freakin snake.

i hope Joanie can bring the fierceness.

but da*m if Danielle isnt fierce in photos!

I'm gonna be so mad if Jade wins... Then again Danielle really needs to improve the way she talks, so hopefully Joanie.

Yes, but on a seriousish note - when Tyra says "you need to s.p.e.a.k. like this," do you hear "you need to speak like a middle class white girl from the Western US state? Except when you need to speak "ghetto" for amusement, authenticity, or pop culture purposes. Like DIS, homegirl." It's very twisted.

Some real top models can't even speak English. OK, they're not getting Cover Girl ads either, but come ON.

Crikey, I didn't hear anyone getting all over Janice "hag" Dickinson's butt when she was attempting to talk "ghetto." Made me want to vomit. She wouldn't know fierce if it came up and clawed her in the face.

That is true it always bothered me when Tyra would flash back to her ghetto talk and act all nuts. I don't think speach is such an issue with most models, but here they have to shoot a commercial and do publicity interviews. So I can see where it would be better. I don't think she needs to change everything but really needs to learn to compose your thoughts before starting to talk and getting all jumbled up.

Yeah, but come on - like Jade is a better role model for Cover Girl? She's wicked old and mean and conniving and STUPID. Stupid+conniving=not so hot. I mean, models aren't supposed to be all that bright, but still. I can't wait until she's on that VH1 show that you KNOW she's gonna be on, eventually. The one where they live in the house.

I highly doubt that a model's accent would truly prevent her from getting work in the real world. PPs are right - they'd just get her an accent coach if she were model material. She already got her gap "fixed" - I'm sure the producers could blanderize her right up with the rest of them if they really wanted to. Jade needs a personality coach.

I think there is a whole graduate school course in this show, incorporating race, cultural appopriation, gender studies, gay studies, and really bad acting. Tyra, can you show me the "smiling eyes" again please? How about the fainting action?

Sign me up! I'd like to do a study of Miss J's hair styles! (I love Miss J.)

My dh and I were just talking last night about how it feels a bit warped that they want Danielle to act more white, middle class. That's advertising for you! CoverGirl is soooo white, middle class. But, isn't Queen Latifah a spokesperson for them?



Next week they will be making the CG commercial and that will be when it hits the fan. Will Jade talk like George Bush and look like Voldemort? Will Danielle sound just to Southern? Joanie is hoping yes to both.
