America’s Next Top Model Finale

And America’s Next Top Model is….

Whitney Thompson of Atlantic Beach Florida.

America's Next Top Model

A big surprise to me.  I really though Anya was going to win.  The representative from Cover Girl was fawning over her at the photo shoot with comments like “You model from your toes up!”

I think it’s a positive and interesting choice all at once.  The ANTM gals haven’t become big stars as the show suggests.  There are rumors that top modeling agencies and designers don’t like to be “told” who will be the next “it” girl.  So maybe Tyra and the show have decided to change direction a bit.  Neither girl did well in their commercial and Anya was a real disappointment in the final cat walk.

Was it just me, or did anyone else think that final runway show in Rome was only staged for the show?  Other final runway shows seemed to be actual shows by the designer.  This one just had Versace clothes, not a Versace show per se.

What do you think about the choice?  I also found an interesting link of pictures of the past contestants and some pre-show photos of Whitney when she was a bit slimmer (or really sucking it in).  Click here.

America’s Next Top Model Controversy

It’s been awhile since I last posted about ANTM and thought it was time to comment again.

The ladies are now in Italy and last week they shot commercials for Cover Girl.

It was no surprise that Lauren. was. sent. home.  (An ANTM reference)

She can’t walk and was buckling under the pressure.  Whitney was on the chopping block too.  What do you think? Is she Top Model material?

I would say my top two pics would be Katarzyna and Anya.  The thing is, Anya has that really strange accent.  Somebody, tell me what is that all about?  But I will say Anya seems like a really sweet person.

Now on to the latest buzz.  In a report on the New York Post,  The Parents Television Council has filed an indecency complaint with the FCC over the March 26 episode where

“…a model posing for photographs, fully nude, while lying on a bed.

While the nudity was partially blurred, PTC president Tim Winter called it ‘irresponsible’ and said it ‘crossed the legal threshold for broadcast indecency.’ “

Isn’t this the episode when Anya won a photo shoot with Nigel? I did some digging on YouTube and here is the video.  Fast forward to near the end.  Notice that when Anya is getting ready, there is a nude colored thong hanging up to put on.  I don’t think she was totally nude.  You be the judge.

I find it interesting that there wasn’t any outrage (or at least I didn’t hear of any) when one of the ladies breasts were exposed during a High School fashion show.  The boys got a little treat that day.

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 10


Ok, so I have to let you in on one of my guilty pleasures, ANTM.  Not as popular as Project Runway and regularly paned by critics, but I enjoy it just the same. 

I respect that Tyra has addressed issues like body image and cigarette smoking. I also enjoyed watching Heather last cycle follow her dream of becoming a model while dealing with the challenges that Autism and AD/HD can impose.

This season, as with other cycles the models will win a management and representation by Elite Model Management, a 100,00 contract with Cover Girl Cosmetics, and a cover and six page spread on Seventeen Magazine.

There are a couple of shake ups this cycle with the modeling icon Twiggy out (according to reports, she had scheduling conflicts) and Cezech supermodel and Dancing With The Stars contestant, Paulina Porizkova taking her place.

The other shake up but not really a big deal in my book, there will be 14 instead of the typical 13 contestants.  Maybe a double elimination in the first episode?  We’ll see.  I’m looking forward to what Miss J. will do for each departing girl.  Last cycle his afro increased in size.  He’s very silly and has a wicked sense of humor.

Another change to ANTM, will be where the models will be living.  This cycle the models will be in NYC a departure from LA where the show has been housed since cycle 4. 

Does anyone else watch the show?

Here’s a link to the site if you want to do some exploring.

Below is a preview for tonight.
