Previously on Top Model, the remaining six girls jetted off to Greece! When they arrived in Greece, they were greeted by the press and asked to give a statement. Laura stumbled on her native-language phrases, Angelea asked where the bathroom was and Allison won the challenge. The photo shoot had the girls in swimsuit-like on a beautiful Grecian beach. Oh, and they also posed in a tossed salad…because everyone thinks “underwear, beach and tossed salad!” In the end, Shannon remained firm and refused to model underwear. Tyra called her “noble,” but sent her home.
This week starts with the girls sizing up each other. Angelea doesn’t understand why Dominique is still there and how she’s never been in the bottom two. I actually agree, I never saw Dominique lasting long in this all-star competition. But she has really turned it up and, in comparison, may actually be the most improved from her respective cycle. Many of the girls wonder how Allison just blinks and captivates the judges. Ahem, because she’s stunning! Lisa talks about the “entire package” again. I understand the “entire package” deal, but this “package” may consist of different things depending on which girl we are talking about.
“TYRAmail: Tomorrow you’ll meet with the judges…Fierce and Love, Tyra.” There’s some anxiety since they just met with the judges, but it turns out that THEY will be the judges. They must critique one another. After judging one another’s walks and portfolios, Miss J asks Laura who does not deserve to win Top Model All-Stars. Of course, sweet Laura refuses to single out one girl and says everyone deserves it. Allison and Lisa follow suit. But Dominique turns the tables and says Angelea. She then goes into Tyra mode and tells Angelea that she sees so much of herself in her, she has so much potential and that she LOVES her. Wow, she really sounded just like Tyra! Dominique’s speech opens the door for the other girls to tell Angelea that she has so much to offer but simply lacks confidence. Laura gets upset and nearly starts crying telling Angelea that they are not attacking but trying to help her. Angelea’s guard immediately goes up, and then it’s her time to speak. Laura continues to try to break through to Angelea, but she’s just not having it. Ultimately, Angelea turns around, upset and crying, and storms out. Laura is also crying. I honestly think Laura has a big heart and just wanted to help Angelea find her confidence. In all fairness, the girls do not seem to be trying to attack Angelea. She just views everything as an attack rather than a critique. Miss J brings her back in and asks her who she thinks does not deserve to be there, to which she classily replies none of them. And then the girls vote on who has the best walk, best portfolio and overall star quality. Allison is voted the girl with least potential (here’s where I would say…threatened, anyone?) and Laura is voted the girl with the most potential. I’m so happy for Laura. She real is versatile and almost always surprises me.
So, what did you think? Did you agree with the judges? And what did you think about Angelea’s breakdown? Was she justified or was she too sensitive? Let us know what you have to say!
