Musings of a Chicago-Born New Yorker

America’s Next Top Model, C17 E4

I wrote about America’s Next Top Model for the last two seasons on my old blogs. To read the posts I wrote about the first three episodes of this Cycle 17, just look below.

Episode 1 Episode 2 Episode 3

Episode 3 saw Isis leave. I was a fan of her for her strength and her style. But she never did do a good job of showing herself through her photos, so she had to go.

Lisa talked about being on celebrity rehab. I didn’t know that because I never watched that show. But I did notice how weird her lips look. I have hang-ups about the way people chew. I officially hate the way she chews. Her unfortunate choice of lipstick colors don’t help.

The girls got mail delivered to the house. Some got gifts and letter from family. Camille talked about how her mail had work and bills. Oh boo-hoo, you’re old as hell and have responsibilities. I don’t know why this chick drives me up a wall. She’s just got this veneer and I don’t like it.

Kayla had a health scare that had been advertised throughout all the commercials for the show up to this point. She took a ridiculous combination of pills and her heart started racing. She got nauseous, threw up, and was rushed to the emergency room. It turns out she has an arrhythmia. Finding it in a way that won’t kill you can actually end up saving your life later, but it’s still pretty scary because it feels like a mini heart attack. She’ll be on edge about that for as long as she’s in this competition I imagine.

Their challenge is an audition for a role on CSI. These girls want to be models, so they never learn science-y words. They had to say this phrase, “Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer”, and hardly any of them could. I feel some kind of way that they seriously couldn’t even remember it. It’s no harder than when they learn a new language for a CoverGirl commercial overseas. Pssshhh! The nerd in me is hating on these uneducated girls.

Anthony Zuiker is the guest judge as well as the judge for this challenge. He’s the producer for all the CSI shows. All the girls sucked except Bre and Angelea, which made me happy because they are the two “hood” chicks. Good for them for rising to the challenge. Bre ended up winning and she will have the guest spot. I can’t wait to see it, I bet it will be great!

Their photo shoot was with Express. An Express ad campaign is one of the prizes, so this was a big photo shoot. Lisa Gavales was on set, and she’s the chief marketing officer for Express. She reminded the girls to be sexy and sophisticated, and to be the girl who wants to get noticed. 

They had four options for what character they were portraying in their photo shoot: Girlfriend, Flirt, Cool Chick, Socialite. They had three male models with them who were in all the shots they took. The photographer was Alvaro Goveia.

Angelea Preston: socialite; Kayla Ferrel: cool chick; Allison Harvard: girlfriend; Bre Scullark: flirt; Dominique Reighard: cool chick; Bianca Golden: flirt; Shannon Stewart: girlfriend; Laura Kirkpatrick: flirt; Alexandria Everett: socialite; Camille McDonald: socialite; Lisa D’Amato: cool chick.

Mr. J was very opinionated about the girls. I felt kind of bad for some of them. Then it was time for judging. I’m just going to skip to the top photos. They were: Angelea Preston, Dominique Reighard, Allison Harvard, Laura Kirkpatrick, Kayla Ferrel, Shannon Stewart, Bre Scullark, Bianca Golden, Alexandria Everett.

The bottom two are: Lisa D’Amato and Camille McDonald. They both made a ton of excuses and the judges had enough. Lisa was completely unpredictable and Camille is too perfect.  They kept Lisa. I have to say I was glad to see Camille go. That comment she made about Isis in the last episode made me so completely done with her.

They showed a clip from next week when the Kardashian sisters show up. Should be fun, I guess. Am I the only one underwhelmed by the Kardashians?
