Destiny looks like Liz reborn. Hopefully not as annoying as Liz was...

I really hate this whole social media aspect. It'd be so much better if we, y'know, didn't know weeks/months ago who was eliminated when.

Victoria is seriously starting to annoy me (which of course means she'll make top 4 minimum :P), and a lot of the shows' antics are making me glad I was only half paying attention. It was interesting to see at least half the judges' scores being pretty noticeably different from the fan scores, though I think that pretty much confirmed what we all knew anyway. Not sure if I like the scoring setup, but eh.

Sad to see Jessie go home so soon though. I never expected her to win, but I did rather like her anyway and was rooting for her to stick around for a while.

haha that part was pretty ridiculous, but i have to say i enjoyed the overall episode a lot more than the recent cycles.

it's an interesting take, but yeah, the judges can just mark up a photo they don't really like just to keep a girl in. the eliminations have always been manipulated though so you kinda just have to take it for what it is

I like Victoria. She's sort of like an alien--or a foreign exchange student from somewhere bizarre. I'm looking forward to her social commentary on the other girls. ;)

The whole "my relationship with my mother is enough for me" thing kinda weirded me out though (I know I'm butchering that quote, but still). I mean, it's one thing to say "my Mom is my best friend", but IMO she's taking it to a creepy level.

Oh yeah, totally. She's nuts. Hearing an 18yo say shit like that is the best ad I've seen for not home-schooling your kids their entire lives. I really hope her time away from home helps her become less dependent on her mom!!! (And I hope she follows the lead of many previous ANTM alumnae and makes out with a hot male model at their foreign location!)

I think she's had some sort of trauma that she just hasn't shared.

I like her too, but every time she opens her mouth all I hear is Underdog Lady!



They're both complete weirdos... and that's what makes them interesting. :)

I love that Kristin was the fan fave preshow since her personality sucks (actually, I love it. Her openly laughing at Victoria, etc. omg)....I sort of think the new format is cool but if the best they've got are videos of some lady eating a popsicle and the photographers are just cw actresses with a camera, idk...


Team Victoria (crazy) and Kristin (bitchy) and Laura (olivia munn etc)

I think Laura looks like Olivia Wilde!

Were they making those scores up randomly? 'Great photo & I thought you did pretty well - have a 5' 'That photo is awful - I'll give you an 8'.

A couple thoughts:

- Lamest challenge I've ever seen
- Victoria is going to be fun to watch. She's ridiculous, but that just means they'll keep her around longer. I want to see what she'll spout out next.
- I can't decide whether I like or hate the new points method of judging. It seems overcomplicated when we just know Tyra will pick her favorites, but at least this is a new way of ranking the girls and creating house drama.
- The set for panel sucks. The girls can't even walk straight up to Tyra to get their photo. They have to walk down the stairs, around the side, then down the little runway.
- Were the girls required to wear red lips to panel? What was with the clone makeup?

Victoria killed me with those exercises on the lawn.

Oh man, those exercises. I loved how they edited her exercises with the music too.

I am loving this new cycle. It's kind of strange since the last two sucked out parts of my soul, and now here I am wishing it's Friday.

I think it's surprisingly good so far - a lot of the girls have potential and it's a shame the world at large has essentially tuned out to ANTM. I think the whole social media/Youtube tie-ins are pretty stupid, but I like Rob a lot - I really wish Tyra didn't sexualize him at every opportunity, it's kind of demeaning and just a bit embarrassing to watch.

I also hope Victoria can break out of her environment a little through this experience and hopefully make some friends - my heart goes out to her! She can't depend on her mom like that forever and it's sad to her so removed from normal social interactions. At 18!

YES!!!

"I really wish Tyra didn't sexualize him at every opportunity, it's kind of demeaning and just a bit embarrassing to watch."

...I agree, but to be fair, she used to do this with almost every attractive male judge/guest judge. She did it with Nigel constantly (e.g. cycle 11 RE: Analeigh's 1st covergirl commercial... "It blew me away, so much I landed on Nigel's sexy shoulder and got a little feel!"). This is nothing new, but yes, I agree, it seems like the 3 or 4 times she's intro'd Rob it's always been about her (Tyra lovvvvvvvves to turn things out to be all about herrrr).

True about the Rob thing. I like how he handles it though. He's modest and just kind of smiles a little and moves on. It's a nice contrast to Tyra.

Suprisingly I don't hate this season like I thought I would. The new format kind of resusitated this nearly dead show. And Bryanboy and Rob are very likable. None of the girls really standout for me just yet the way Azmarie or Sophie did last cycle and there is no one as likable as Annelise. I'm sure I'll have some favorites as the season moves forward.

Does anyone else appreciate the irony that Rob is judging ANTM and Tyson Beckford is judging BNTM?

Overall, I'm very "meh" about this season. I used to be all "It's Wednesday! Top Model night!" and now I'm "Oh look, my DVR recorded Top Model....eh I'll watch it tomorrow." On the upside, it's kinda nice to have the challenges actually have some weight now.

I still don't understand this cycle. The rules, social media thing and all. Can someone explain?

I know I'm extremely late, but isn't Jonte' wearing Kooan's (of Project Runway fame) designs in one of the photos of him?

The way the online college chick acts makes me want to abandon attachment parenting altogether.
I can't believe that Jessie is out already, wow.

tbh I have a feeling that Jessie is going to be the fan favorite that returns to the competition after the Comeback Series
