On October 5th’s episode of America’s Next Top Model, one of the girls had to go to the hospital. Kayla took a couple of ibuprofen after the rough panel but started to feel uneasy; she was dizzy and her heart was racing. She began to hyperventilate, gasping, vomiting, and everyone was frightened. She went to the hospital, and Dominique said she was scary and she hopes she comes back. When she gets back at 2:12 in the morning she tells us she had a cardiac arrhythmia which can come from stress and caffeine. Stress is abundant in the girls’ top model house.
Tyramail: It would be a crime to miss this action. The girls met Mister Jay at Stage 25 to audition for a role on CSI, they were all so excited. Laura said this was the biggest prize so far, but Bianca said she can’t see the other girls doing everything that she can. The creator of the show, executive producer Anthony Zuiker, is going to help judge the auditions; he’s also the guest judge at panel this week. The winner will air on a fall episode of CSI, they must memorize an entire thirty minute scene with medical words and all. Kayla said half the words were longer than her face, Camille was genuinely nervous and shaking. Kayla got three of the four words, but the girls who did the best were Angelea and Bre. Angelea kept saying she had the most talent up in the place, and that everybody loved her. Bre was just so happy she nailed it. Lisa had to go last and she was freaking out, she was forgetting the words because she hadn’t been looking at the script for so long. They were saying she had no energy, that she should be serious, but she was the worst of the day. They said Bre was incredible, the she owned the scene, and that Angelea has permission to be herself. Bre was chosen as the winner and she was so excited because an opportunity like this opens so many doors.
Tyramail: when you’re a star you have to EXPRESS yourself. They met Mister Jay back at an impressive mansion for an EXPRESS photo-shoot. They each are to play a part: cool chick, girlfriend, socialite, and flirt; and its important they tell a story. They were working with three male models: Josh, Shaun, and David. Angelea was a socialite and became a real rich bitch; they thought she was gorgeous with her slight smile but she shouldn’t arch her back so much. Kayla wanted to do good for the client, she was a cool chick and she was very good. Allison was a girlfriend, she didn’t look at the camera but she did great. Bre was flat but when she laughed she came alive. Dominique was a cool chick and they thought she did well. Bianca was a flirt, she said she was the model, and that Jay expected more from her, but Mister Jay said he hadn’t seen model the whole time. Shannon had little commitment, Laura was pretty cute, Alex looked like a madam, and Jay had to push and push Camille because she was giving him 60% of what he expected from her. Lisa was a cool chick, she wanted to prove she was badass but there was no expression.
Kayla went to the hospital but she still wanted everyone to know she was still here, still competing. Lisa wants to please everyone but she doesn’t know what the future holds. At judging, everyone thought Laura looked lovely as the flirt, that she was sweet and sexual but flat to the camera. Kayla was the cool chick, provocative and icy, she was the center of photo-her body language commanded attention. Dominique was also a cool chick, selling express and just the right amount of sexy; the judges said they would stop on her page for the clothes. Bre was a flirt, but too commercial, and not committed. Alex was out of her age range when she played the socialite, her body had confidence but her face did not; she looked forty plus, she forgot who her customer was. Allison went from awkward to relaxed, she was committed, wonderful, photogenic; an innocence doll who could use just a tiny bit more control. Camille was an unengaged socialite who needed more in her eyes, she was very pretty but she was extremely stiff. Lisa was a cool chick but the judges were at a loss for words, she had no energy, and she was all about excuses. Bianca wanted to look like she wanted them but she wasn’t looking at anybody; she was described as boring and completely amateur. Angelea was a socialite with a real story, she looked like new money-so fabulous; she had a strong character and has been making leaps and bounds.
The best photo was Angelea, and the runner-up was Dominique. Then it was Allison, Laura, Kayla, Shannon, Bre, Bianca, and Alex. Tyra told Alex that she has more talent than her photo this week, that it does not look like her. The bottom two are Camille and Lisa. Tyra said they are polar opposites, they both have excuses but Camille is in control with background while Lisa is daring, outta control, a funny comedian but an excuse monster which is not allowed. Lisa stays because of her smile, her laugh, creating, branding, a fighter, a stand-out, someone who is stronger than an excuse. Tyra told Camille that she was a disappoint, at first you don’t succeed, you try and try again, that this is not the end but that she should be proud.
On October 12th’s episode of America’s Next Top Model, we started the hour with some drama. The girls get a certain amount of time to talk on the phone with their loved ones. Shannon tried to be as fair as possible and calculated how long each girl would get so that all the girls could have a turn. Then the order was randomly chosen, and Bianca ended up last. She was worried that Shannon calculated wrong and that she wouldn’t have a chance to talk to her boyfriend. She confronted her and Shannon offered her phone time to Bianca so that she wouldn’t be mad. She then started crying and explaining that she has a sensitive spirit and she can’t take people yelling at her. Lisa decided it was her time to step in and told Bianca that she was being a bully, but Bianca didn’t feel Lisa had any place in the conversation. Bianca ended up walking away after Lisa told her she didn’t give a damn what she said. Don’t think that this is over yet.
The girls ended up meeting Miss Jay at the pier and Bre thought it was nice to get out of the house. The girls are doing a fashion show, with a carousal runway that they will have to step on and off of as its moving and they show off the Kardashian collection line for Sears. Miss Jay comes to check on them while they’re in hair and make-up and so do the Kardashian sisters. They tell them the winner will receive a head to toe outfit, and to bring it and be themselves. Kayla is terrified, she’s in tall tall heels and she’s nervous, she did well but she slid getting off. Allison stumbled off a little, Lisa is uber concentrated, Angelea stumbled, Miss Jay and the sisters though Bianca had no energy, and Dominique also stumbled. Bre spun when she got off so it looked cool and covered any stumble she might have had. Laura pulled off the clothes, Shannon got a yes from the sisters, and Alex looked like a shark. The sisters couldn’t decide on one so they picked two winners, they were very proud of Lisa and Bre. When they got home Bianca went off, she was ranting and raving how no other girl deserves this as much as her, that she was going to punch the next girl that started talking smack. She feels like she’s fighting a losing battle, that she can’t take this pain and hurt, she starts talking on the phone with her boyfriend telling him how she feels broken. Downstairs the girls are talking about how if she can’t handle the stress, she should go home. Alex said if she can’t handle it, she’s wasting the judges time, and all this sends Bre straight up the stairs to tell Bianca what they are saying. Bre says she can’t stand people pretending to be good and concerned when all they want is less competition. Bianca took this as fuel, she decided she was going to get up and fight because thats what she knows how to do.
Tyramail: you’ll get notice when you’re off the wall. The girls head to siren studios to meet with Mister Jay to learn that they are portraying Michael Jackson through the years in a photo-shoot. They get to work with Rushka, Michael Jackson’s personal stylist, and photographer Tom Peterson who photographed Michael Jackson before. A special surprise guest judge shows up, its La Toya Jackson, she helps the girls channel their inner Michael. Laura was scared but she rocked 90’s Michael, never broke character and looked wonderful. Lisa was the early 80’s, the photographer loved her and her energy. Allison was the 60’s, they said she was perfect and she nailed it so many times. Shannon was the late 80’s, they thought she looked hot and did well. Kayla was also a part of the early 80’s, and she got many good’s and great’s from the photographer. Dominique was also the late 80’s and she was very good. Alex was the late 90’s and she was nice. Angelea was also the late 80’s, she was trying to channel love and be as if she was singing. Bianca zones into the character of the early 80’s and they thought she was really good. Bre was middle 80’s, she was excellent, beautiful, her moments had story and she needed to do was stop holding her breathe. Before the girls got home, Bianca and Shannon got into another tiff. Shannon made a joke and Bianca took it literally, Shannon admitted her mistake but Bianca would not shut up about the crying christian who could do no wrong and then goes and does that. Blah blah blah, go home Bianca.
La Toya Jackson was the guest judge this week, and she was very appreciative that the girls did this for her brother. Shannon was late 80’s, one judge thought she was genius, another thought she was bad, but she became the character and she connected. Kayla was the early 80’s, she had energy and passion, you could feel the song, the attitude, she was performing. Dominique was a smooth criminal, modelesque with the perfect movement. Angelea was intense and different, Andre said her body was incredible but her face could be better, she needs more pow. Allison was wonderful, she was the essence of the era, her photo was Italian vogue, she lost a little model, and looked like an innocent boy. Bre was amazing with the opposite of her calm faces and kickbutt toes, she was trying but it seems her power was dimming. Alex’s photo had a sense of humor, and was whimsical. Lisa was the thriller, she worked her signature moves (open mouth, out stretched legs), but Nigel didn’t think it worked in this picture. They loved Laura’s hands, legs, lovely face, it all worked well, she was elegant and magical. Bianca was just doing it, it was good but it wasn’t strong. Tyra asked her about what was going on in the house, and Bianca went off about how much competition she was and thats why the girls were bashing on her but that she doesn’t break even if she bends.
La Toya picked the order from best to worst, and she chose the girl who went home. Best photo went to Laura, with Shannon as the runner-up. Then it was Dominique, Allison, Alex, Kayla, Bre, and Bianca. The bottom two were Lisa and Angelea. The judges felt they didn’t know who Angelea was with her highs and lows. Lisa was considered a one note, one look, not surprising girl, which is the opposite of what they previously thought. So, no one went home, La Toya was so grateful and her brother was all about love and second chances so no one went home this week.
