The CW Source blog has a great video from an ANTM viewing party in New York recently.  Paulina Porizkova is there chatting about her upcoming gig (and looking absolutely FABULOUS, by the way) and Nigel Barker talks about the upcoming Cycle and some of the past models. 

Also in attendance is Cycle 4 winner Naima Mora and Cycle 2 contestant April Wilkner

Now, I loved Naima while she was on, I routed for her, but in hearing her interviewed it sounds like she’s kind of just floating around and being giggly and not focused.  For some reason, this irritates me.  She also talks of being in a band… and apparently this has to do with her “friendship” with Russell Simmons.

April Wilkner, at least, sounds very busy.  She’s managed to make her time on ANTM valuable.  Good news.

The hubby and I watched Adrianne Curry and Chris Knight if their “From Russia With Love” deal on WE-TV.  Hiliarious!  Those two always are.  They are complete opposties… but at the same time they’re also perfect for each other.  Chris and Aid visit a Vodka making plant, Stalin’s summer home, and of course, host the Mrs. World competition.  Adrianne gets massively sick but still does her job.  (Something Tyra would be proud of, no?)

Adrianne Curry will be on the January 2008 cover of Playboy.  Here’s her pose.

Can’t say I’m too suprised by the outcome of ANTM this week.  The last few weeks have each been pretty predictable.  I figured it would be either Bianca and Jenah… and hoped it would actually be Jenah.  The more we see of her personality, the more unattractive she seems to become. 

Did you guys see when Jenah was talking about Heather leaving last week, and she does her uppity little laugh and says Heather had trouble communicating?  Of course Heather had trouble, but you know what Jenah… SO DID YOU.  With all the mirrors in that model house you’d think she’d get to look in one at her own behavior.

And yeah… Bianca telling Jenah to go to the mall that apparently didn’t exist was lousy, but wasn’t Jenah laughing at Heather last week during Go Sees just as bad?  Didn’t she yap loudly in the background while Heather tried to model?  Didn’t Nigel have to tell her to shut the heck up?  How big is Jenah’s ego if she can’t see any of this?  And what’s with this sudden talk of “I just want to know who I am…..”

Bleck.

Next week is the finals and I have to say it’s GOTTA be down to Chantal and Saliesha.  I can’t imagine Jenah going any further, although now that she’s shown her “emotions” (meaning Tyra got her to cry) she might have a better chance.  For some reason they seem to like a girl much better once she starts bawling. 

This episode Twiggy really bugged me as well.  Her lack of adjectives is astounding.  EVERY SINGLE PICTURE is either “lovely” or “quite good” or “I see a model” no matter what they look like.  For example, I thought Jenah’s picture was AWFUL:

What the heck is with her stupid leg?  And yet Twiggy says, “Your leg just goes on and on.  And your face is amazing.” 

Uh… Twigster?  That leg?  It looks like it doesn’t belong to the rest of her.  And the face?  NOT amazing. 

Ann Shoket said it looks like Jenah got lost in the costume.  I have to say I agree.

The judges said Bianca’s profile pose looked stiff and like she was mad:

Now here’s the thing:  Bianca USUALLY photographs like she’s pissed off.  I actually think this will be her “thang” and get her lots of modeling jobs in the future.  And many times the mad look just doesn’t work.  But in this shot?  Where she’s supposed to a WARRIOR?  It works just fine. 

When she’s supposed to be rock climbing:

Not so much.  I actually think one of Bianca’s prettiest shots was in the recycling photo shoot:

Here she is surrounded by OIL and she manages to look soft and welcoming.  Hmm.

Anyways, I think Bianca will end up just fine.  She’s got a certain look and it can really work for her.  She should keep that short hair!  I know she bawled when it came time to let go off the weave but the short style really shows off her face.

And while Chantal’s shot was nice:

I think Saliesha’s was FAR BETTER:

You can’t keep your eyes off of her in this one.  If she doesn’t win… there’s got to be a problem.

So who will get voted off the show tonight?  Personally, I’ve had enough of Jenah and wouldn’t mind seeing her go.  Her attitude is a real turn off.  She was lippy and sarcastic with Nigel (dear, handsome Nigel!) which didn’t help her.  Of course, it didn’t hurt CariDee English from Cycle 7 so who knows.  But I think her pictures have gotten worse as well.  And when she sat there jawing last week during Heather’s photoshoot?  Lame.

This week the girls will get photographed by Tyra…

…by the Great Wall.  The photoshoot should be one of the best.  I predict Saliesha will come out on top, followed by Chantal, then Bianca.

What’s your guess?  Is it bye-bye Jenah?
