America's Next Top Model: House of Pain
(S10E06) To be perfectly honest, I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to Aimee this season.
I mean look at her in the capture above. The waterfall or the buildings behind her have just as good a chance at capturing your attention as she does.
She's pretty nondescript to say the least and while she's a pretty girl and everything, she just hadn't done very much to stand out this season aside from profess her anxiety of being naked around other women. I'm not ashamed to admit I find that to be a turn-off.
Of course, that was before this photo captured my attention:
I mean look at her! Absolutely scrumptious. If that was yogurt or some other edible substance, why I might just offer to...well, never mind what I might offer to do. Let's just say it wouldn't be the kind of thing a moral man would do.
I just hope she can come out of her shell a little bit more as the season progresses, otherwise wonderful shots like this are going to be completely for naught. Shy girls never win this competition, and I still say she's going to have to get over that whole nude thing if she's going to cut it in this industry.
Claire, Lauren, and Whitney have kind of been ganging up the drag-queen looking one. I think she deserves every foul comment the girls throw at her.
Tyra had five words for the girls tonight on their way to this weeks competition. Those five words were, "Go upstairs and get dressed." The girls got dressed in red dance outfits. I assumed they were going to have to bust out some dance moves, but instead they practiced their "model walk" not for the first or second time this season, but for the third friggin' time. I think we're officially starting to run out of the things for the girls to do.
I think we need to start throwing some Survivor like challenges into the mix, don't you? I know that would have absolutely nothing to do with modeling, but I'd pay good money to watch these girls make their way through a maze tied together, bring items in a burlap sack to the top of a tower, and have to solve a puzzle for an immunity idol and a chicken bone.
I think I just came up with the premise for cycle 11. America's Next Top Survivor. It's got a nice ring to it.
Where was I? Tyra taught the girls how to "pose with pain" and the highlight to that sequence came when the girls had to pretend they were having some serious menstrual cramps. I personally thought most of them looked like they were just constipated, but I'm a guy, and don't have menstrual cramps so who am I to judge?
Anya ended up winning the competition and she won a one-on-one photo shoot with Nigel Barker.
Anya is another one of those girls that I haven't paid all that much attention to this season, but for some reason I was all eyes during her photo shoot. It may have had a little bit do do with the fact that she was almost completely nude posing seductively on white sheets. Have I ever mentioned that I hate Nigel Barker? The man gets paid to have attractive girls take their cloths off and he takes photos of them--all with their consent?
If ever there was a prime candidate for identify theft, I'd put him at the top of the list.
Outside of another blow up between Dominique and Claire, Whitney, and Lauren not much else happened this episode. I hope the producers find something besides this feud to focus on next week. It's already starting to wear thin. You can only hear girls get catty and call each other bitches so many times before it starts to get old. We're about to that point.
For this weeks photo shoot, the girls headed to Brooklyn and got dolled up in a variety of outfits to take on the persona of specific music genres.
Of the bunch, I'm pretty confident Lauren played her character the best. She looked the best in her outfit anyhow. I'm continually impressed by this fish out of water. She's definitely out of her element, but she's hanging in there with girls who seem much more comfortable in this environment. I'd go out on a limb here and say she's becoming one of my favorites, but we all know I'm rooting for Fatima and Dominique, so I won't bother...
The order of the photos:
Apparently, the panel disagreed with my assessment that Lauren took the best photo. No surprises there. It came down to Claire and Aimee. Guess who went home? Could it be, the girl that I complimented at the beginning of this post? The curse of JJ Hawkins strikes again.
I'm done! Next week, Dominique or Fatima is getting all kinds of praise in the intro. I may go so far as to compliment the both of them, and while it may cause my head to explode it will be completely worth it if Tyra surprises us with a double elimination and cuts these two beasts out of the competition.
