victoria america’s next top model

At first I thought I was going to be bored to tears by this episode recap tonite.  But it was interesting to see the girls in the earlier scenes now that we’ve come to know them more and more each week.

It was surprising to me that Victoria seemed even more “prickly” than before.  I thought perhaps it was a recent thing right before she got booted off the show… but no.  How did you like her stripping down on the boat to beg Tyra to let her be on the show?  Pathetic?  Ridiculous?  And then the whole fainting deal before panel?  Yikes. 

I’d forgotten that Janet demonstrated the whole bikini wax thing on Tyra.  Hilarious!  I mean, she actually put her hands on TyTy’s buttocks in order to properly show how it’s done, and then spanked her on the ass!  Too much.  I’ll say it again, that Liza haircut did her in… plain and simple.

And Ebony… what the heck happened to Ebony?  Now that we got to see her again in the beginning and how she was smack talking and telling people she was a “fierce bitch”…. whoa.  Compare that to the sniveling woman who begged to go home.  I actually think Tyra might be right, she didn’t like the critique and criticism that comes with modeling.

I’m surprised to see how many cameos Dani(or Danielle, as she was known in Cycle 6) is making this round.  Tyra must really like her.  I have to say she’s one of my favorites, too.  I couldn’t believe it when she said the first thing they told her was to lose weight!  What is wrong with these people! 

On a separate note, it was hilarious/disturbing/ridiculous/fascinating to see Bianca’s series of confrontations.  That girl has got into it with everyone in the house, and for no other apparent reason than to mix it up.  Did you see her skip in front of Heather to use the phone?  Why?  How old are we?

The BIGGEST surprise of the night came when Chantalgot up in Bianca’s face for a change!  I have to say I have a new-found respect for Chantal now.

I guess Bianca got hers when she ran at full speed into a glass door.  I mean, she even had the eye prints on the glass!  That must have hurt like a mo-fo. 



Looks like this week’s ANTM will be a “recap of the season” episode, with “never-before-seen footage.”  According to the Top Model website, clips will include Bianca’s confrontations with Chantal and Ebony, and a scene where Jenah chips her tooth.  “Later, Tyra talks to the girls about body image and Bianca runs into a glass door and hurts her lip. This episode recaps the process that the eight remaining girls have survived in hopes of becoming America’s Next Top Model.”

But I’m sure they’ll be enough to chat about after.


On a seperate note, I finally caught a few of the Cycle 7 episodes and was very surprised to see the Caridee bitchiness and Melrose drama.  I hate that two gals gaining up on one thing, and think Melrose was probably very misunderstood.  Caridee’s personality is a lot to be desired.  Perhaps it’s all editing, but I felt bad for Melrose.  I think the only thing she was guilty of was WANTING IT. 

Here’s a video clip I found on Melrose.


Ebony America’s Next Top Model

Ebony did an interview with BuddyTV about her experience on ANTM.  Check out what she says when asked if she wants to continue to model:

Yes, I’m interested in modeling and if I want to make a career out of it? Yes, but now my passion is definitely nursing, I’m in nursing school right now and I’m going for my major next semester, and I’m very excited about that. But I’m not sure if I want to make a career out of modeling as of yet, but I don’t know if things may change down the line.

Yiiiikes.  I’m disappointed by this because I thought Ebony was one of the more “modelish” looking girls in the beginning.  I looked forward to hearing what she had to say about her experience, but what she said in the interview didn’t impress me.  She seemed very wishy washy. 

I’ll give her this:  I can totally understand not wanting to do reality TV.  Cameras in your face every minute?  People cutting and pasting snippets of your best or worst moments together?  Blech.  Still…. it’s fun to watch.

How great was it to see Tyson Beckford this week?  I would have probably screamed by head off, too.  That boy is hot.  Didn’t you love how Ambreal kept the mango Tyson bit out of? 



I actually thought Heather would have struggled with this challenge, but seemed to get into it as much as the other’s girls.  And I’m really starting to wonder about Chantal.  She can’t speak!  But I suppose that never stopped Jaslene from winning.  Plus you knew Ebony was just not going to do well the whole episode when she couldn’t even mug with Tyson.  The male Ty Ty!

Ebony America’s Next Top Model

I have to say that America’s Next Top Model is getting a bit predictable.  They always start out with one or two models either whining about their performance, or saying boldly that they’ll never drop to the bottom two, as Saliesha did in Week 4.  This week Ebony says she doesn’t think her personality is cut out for modeling. 

Hmmm…. gosh…. I wonder who will be sent home?

Besides that, Ebony just confuses the heck out of me.  At first she was super-confident and strong.  Remember that first week when she actually rubbed Bianca the wrong way and B tattled to Tyra that Ebony was super-arrogant?  This prompted Tyra to confront her and ask her what the deal is with her attitude.  After that, Ebony started bawling.  And she hasn’t stopped since.  Either Tyra broke that girl down or Bianca got inside her head.  Either way, she went steadily downhill.  Who knows how far she would have gone if she hadn’t taken herself out of the running. 

Didn’t you guys love how Tyra says, “There’s nothing more unattractive than a quitter, so you can go.”  Love the Ty Ty!
