Cycle 16 Episode 4 Discussion Post

Description: THE SORORITY HOUSE RECEIVES A SURPRISE VISIT FROM ALICIA KEYS –Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter Alicia Keys informs the girls they will be modeling in a fashion show to raise funds for her charity, “Keep A Child Alive.” The winner of the competition gets to take a friend to see Alicia Keys in concert.

that bottom 2 was crazy! did not expect that elimination at all!
Sep. 22nd, 2012 01:18 am (UTC)
also idc what anyone says this season is awesome.

It IS surprisingly entertaining; even Cutrone isn't ruining it (it helps that everyone else disagrees with her a lot). The Tyra Suite was a very clever idea, bound to cause conflict, and Victoria is a goddess.
Sep. 23rd, 2012 05:23 am (UTC)
yessss ia
Sep. 23rd, 2012 06:04 am (UTC)
lol that was especially evident in this week's episode. tyra pretty much disagreed with every point she made. it was kind of comical.
Sep. 22nd, 2012 04:06 am (UTC)
Agreed. And a terrible elimination. There are a bunch of girls who deserved to go, and she didn't.

And Kiara is 35 if she's a day, right? Not saying that because I hate her personality ("ALICIA KEYS! I sing like you! BE QUIET AND LISTEN TO ME SING!") I do hate her personality though.

this season actually brought back my love for antm :)! darn gotta watch this epi...don't got cable!
Sep. 22nd, 2012 04:16 am (UTC)
Editing really makes sure you hate everyone this cycle, don't they? (with the exception of the flawless goddess Saint Victoria OBVIOUSLY)
Sep. 22nd, 2012 04:46 am (UTC)
I just want to watch it and can't find it anywhere online :(
Sep. 22nd, 2012 06:06 am (UTC)
me neither! usually it's up by now :c
Sep. 22nd, 2012 08:56 pm (UTC)
The CW app for my phone is the only thing keeping me watching this season. My only dislike is that the commercial breaks are just as long as when it airs on tv.

Damn, a pretty undignified end for Leila:
Got shafted by Laura for the Tyra Suite, sucked in her walk in front of Tyra and Alicia, got accused of being obsessed with Laura, cried during her confrontation with her (Laura too, though), got one of the lowest challenge scores, got the worst photo, got eliminated...

Although, Brittany must have felt like crap when Tyra and the judges were telling Leila "What? We can't believe it's actually you that's going home!" Would they have said that to Brittany?

And stop Kiara, please don't compare yourself to Alicia Keys.

Spoiler much?

I was just looking to see if anyone had a link since my DVR didn't catch it and I can't find it online.
Sep. 22nd, 2012 11:54 pm (UTC)
Sorry... I thought spoilers were okay in these comments.

But if you can't find it online (I don't know why it wouldn't be up yet), you can at least watch it using the CW app. This new episode and "comeback series" clip are both up.
Sep. 22nd, 2012 11:55 pm (UTC)
Thanks. I hadn't even known there was an app! Starting the episode right now. :-)
Sep. 23rd, 2012 12:26 am (UTC)
The picture quality is SO shitty, right? Or is that just for me? lol
Sep. 23rd, 2012 12:28 am (UTC)
Picture quality has been fine for me, but the ads are really super-annoying.
Sep. 24th, 2012 04:16 pm (UTC)
It is the discussion post. Spoilers are totally okay.
Sep. 23rd, 2012 12:25 am (UTC)
That elimination was SO planned, just so they can give Leila the edit of Comeback Queen.

I'm saying it now-- final 2 is SO going to be Leila vs. Laura. MARK MY WORDS, Y'ALL!!
Sep. 23rd, 2012 12:28 am (UTC)
*with Laura winning, of course. (ewwwwwww)
Sep. 23rd, 2012 02:36 am (UTC)
Any girl with the name Laura is doomed to be runner-up.

I think you are right that Leila will come back (unless they manage to eliminate Kristin) and make it to the finale. I wouldn't put it past them giving her the win though. They're desperate for controversy at this point. Like in cycle 18 giving the win to a Brit girl, they'll give the win to the fan favourite just to appease everyone.
Sep. 23rd, 2012 11:09 pm (UTC)
I think you're 100% correct. Leila vs. Laura final two, but I definitely see Leila winning. It's a huge part of this resurrection gimmick they've got going this season.
Sep. 24th, 2012 03:22 pm (UTC)
yeah I wouldn't be surprised if that happened, and I would totally be ok with that.
Sep. 23rd, 2012 05:28 am (UTC)
idgaf i love this season

lol at everyones jank walks
lol the judges being 'surprised' at the elmin
lol at leila consoling brittney preemptively

can someone make a gif of Victoria sincerely thanking the judges for telling her she looked like a bird? loving ittt
Sep. 23rd, 2012 11:05 am (UTC)
For a season with so many modelesque girls they really seem spectacularly unpleasant - I thought Laura was such a child about the whole thing, crying about it feeling like high school whilst basically setting this whole idiocy into motion in the first place? I feel so bad for Leila, it's supershitty thinking you're better friends with someone than you actually are. Kristin's just awful. And Alyssa annoys me so much - does she strike anyone else as superbitchy, pouncing on all the gossip and drama like that?

Thank God for Victoria bringing some semblance of sanity into the house (I can't believe I just typed that.) And I like Yvonne and Nastassja (and Kiara to a slightly lesser extent), I'm glad they're stepping up their game.

But whatever, Leila's so obviously going to come back. They'd be absolute idiots not to bring her - also so unfair of Tyra to call her out DURING a fashion show, way to wreck someone's confidence. Bryanboy was really sweet, I was kind of shocked to see him cry but it definitely endeared me to him.
Sep. 23rd, 2012 08:01 pm (UTC)
I hope leila and victoria are the finale 2.

Also kiara can sing better than alicia, imo.
Sep. 23rd, 2012 11:17 pm (UTC)
Leila got a raw deal, but we all know it was set up (I really didn't think her picture was that bad; I thought the body looked great), and we all know she's going to be the girl who comes back from being eliminated (wonder when that's supposed to happen, I'm assuming final-4 ish maybe?).

I like a lot of Laura's pictures, but she's got some really crappy ones too (I actually thought her picture this week was pretty bad, and there are a few later on this season that are just atrocious).

I think it judges have made it their mission to make Brittany cry at every panel.

Alyssa is my least favorite girl this whole cycle. Her pictures suck and I honestly feel like she's an even bigger bitch than Kristin is. She can go home any time now.

Speaking of Kristin, she's like the most quintessential villain this show has ever had: pisses everybody off, turns people against each other, doesn't even try at the photoshoots, produces ho-hum photos and still outlasts better contestants.

Kiara didn't earn either of her challenge wins. Yvonne should have won the one last week and I don't even remember Kiara's walk from this week--it was super forgettable--Victoria should have won this one.

Victoria is delightfully insane; I love every moment she's on my television even if some of her pictures are kinda "meh".

Nastasia is one of my favorites (reminds me a lot of Nik--an old ANTM favorite of mine). She's obviously one of the more talented girls in this group but I can tell the producers really just want her to be filler because she's not contributing anything to the dramaz, but she's obviously too good to be contained.

Yes! I've been thinking that since the first episode. I loved Nik.
Sep. 28th, 2012 09:01 pm (UTC)
Good call! She reminds me of Nik in the way that Nik quietly rocked in the background and when the numbers got smaller, busted out and ended up in the final 2.

Brittany is a nice girl, but she’s not a model. I just don't see it. Eliminating Leila and keeping Brittany was the most frustrating elimination since they kept Jade over Mollie-Sue.

STFU, Kiara, with your singing at Alicia Keys. The girl must be unbearable to live with at times.

I love how natural Alicia Keys is, in this episode and elsewhere. She's a nice contrast to the "TA-DA!" of the rest of the industry.

Nastasia is just drifting in the background, doing well every episode. She’ll be in the final five, at least, if not final three.

WTF is Laura crying over when she’s the one who started talking shit?

Thus ends my thoughts on this episode.
Sep. 24th, 2012 12:55 am (UTC)
I thought Laura was being pretty ridiculous about the whole thing and I felt pretty bad for Lelia. Especially since Laura was the one who made a big deal out of it by acting like she couldn't tell her that she picked Kristen to share the room because she thought she'd get upset. Yeah, okay. And there's that comment she made in the episode where Lelia picked to share the room with her and she was all like "WELL SHE BETTER NOT THINK I OWE HER SOMETHING, OR THAT I'M GOING TO GIVER HER ADVICE." I just rolled my eyes.

Sooo just got around to watching this, because I was away all weekend:
I feel like Kelly was especially rude/condescending in this episode, particularly towards Laura in the challenge. The whole "do you know what this word means?" schtick was really terrible.
Leila was one of my favorites, but I agree that they're setting her up to be the one who comes back to the competition, so I'm not too worried.
I think Laura's a good model, but I honestly don't see her winning. She's too cookie-cutter pretty for me- she kind of reminds me of Lauren Brie from C11 with her hair. I think it washes her out. Honestly, after this episode I think Nastasia is on an upswing. I'd love to see her win- there hasn't really been a non-white winner in a while (since C14, in fact. Wow.) Brittany's one of my favorites too, so it was upsetting to see the Bottom 2 this week. She's taken good pictures in the past, so I'm hoping this week was just a fluke for her.
My ranking of the girls:
