America's Next Top Model: Save The Drama For Your Mama
Things heat up on America's Next Top Model this week as many of the contestants go toe-to-toe, bickering, tattling and bossing one another around in the house. It's getting easier to see who has the talent and the determination, and let's face it, the hunger that it takes to win the whole enchilada.
Don’t get thrown under the Fab Bus
The episode kicks off when a big silver bus rolls up to take the models to their challenge. Inside the "Fab Bus" is none other than Cycle 3 contestant, Toccara Jones. It pays to know about the industry because Toccara is hosting a little game show on the very subject.
The first team to correctly answer five questions, wins. And the winning team gets to do a go-see at Bluefly.com. Each member of the winning team gets a $500 gift card. Then whoever impresses the Bluefly.com folks the most will be featured in their spring collection campaign and score a $2,500 gift card! Since Raina had the best photo last week she automatically gets to be included in the winning team.
Read on to see just how smart our wannabe models are...
Apparently the girls have been studying because it comes down to one question and the Blue Team ends up pulling it off. So Kirsta, Simone, Angelea, Alexandra and Jessica head to their go-see.
Most of the girls do really well at the go-see with the exception of Jessica, who they consider a little too thin. And then there's Angelea who gives a whole new meaning to not doing well. She left the room and the two execs looked each other and simply said, "No."
The losers, Anslee, Tatianna, Ren, Brenda and Alasia, are forced to do inventory of all of the designer goodness they would have won from Bluefly.com. Bummer.
Ren has a love/hate relationship with the drama
For someone who hates the drama and the evil in the house, Ren sure is eager to jump right into it. When she overhears some of the girls calling Brenda names, she runs to tell the poor girl every last grisly detail. Shockingly, that causes more drama and Ren stands in the middle of it, hunched over and wincing with disgust.
Models, maybe. Dancers, probably not
This week's photo shoot is based around dance. Each model portrays a different genre of dance (Please, God, no Michael Flatley, Lord of the Dance!). Alvin Ailey star and dance instructor, Troy Powell, is on hand for some one-on-one with the gals but unfortunately, even after his instruction, most of the girls fall flat. Simone gets hip-hop and a little too pose-y. Brenda has African and does nothing with her arms, but at least she doesn't look elderly. On the more positive side, Angelea gets moshing which plays well in her photos, even though she kind of looked like Slash. And it seems that Raina, who gets jazz, can't seem to take a bad picture…ever.
Panel ain't no tea party
The girls arrive at panel and we're ready to vote off Tyra for her very unusual, unitard-like space-chick outfit. But since that's not possible, we focus on the others. Alasia gets the best photo of the week and no one is pleased but her. We get the idea that the judges weren't even that happy to give it to a gal who wore a silver bathing suit to panel.
Tyra confronts Ren about wanting to go home but when put on the spot, she tells Tyra she wants to stay. That's too bad though, because she gets the boot anyway. It's only when Trya is ready to excuse her that Ren admits that she's only on the show to get her mother's attention and it's not really her cup of tea. Man…we got all the way through Ren's stint on the show and didn't even manage a Ren & Stimpy joke. How lame are we?
