To discuss a TV Play-by-Play: America's Next Top Model Final 5

I hope you caught last week's TV Play-by-Play of America's Next Top Model ... We're down to the Top 5, so I couldn't pass up an opportunity to write another post on it this week.
Remaining girls include BiVegan (Elina), Saudi Arabia (Analeigh), BritMcKey (Brittany S), Frenchgirl (Marjorie) and Blondboobs (Samantha)...(For an explanation of many of the names, see this original post).
The girls are in Amsterdam, where last week they modeled clothes in brothels, which, for ANTM standards, is par for the course. Token Asian (Sheena) got the boot for being too lewd, while BiVegan just barely made it through for another week of hypocritical rants against people with opposing views.

:04 Frenchgirl says BiVegan is too stiff when she models, which, when you're an awkward girl whose signature pose is called the "Hunchback of Notre Dame," is like Mariah Carey telling Whitney Houston she's a diva.
:05 They are still showing footage of Frenchgirl. I'm predicting she's in the bottom two. Getting shown early and often is doomsville, population you.
:06 Tyra Mail's rhyme, "You have to be more than good looking/if you want the first booking." Does Tyra get her poetry skills from a third grader?... The girls are going on "go-sees," which are visits with designers to convince them to book you for a show. It's different than "whoops
ees," which is when your fly is down all day and no one tells you.
:08 Blondboobs' first designer says she's too commercial and not high fashion. In other words, she looks cute and pretty and doesn't have one of those weird faces that freaks people out. Have you ever really looked at runway models? They are butterfaces.*
:10 None of the Dutch people are willing to help the models, who are all lost. Being of Dutch heritage myself, I am ashamed... and also confused, because the Dutch are all feigning that they don't understand a lick of English. From henceforth, "Going Dutch" no longer means sharing the bill. It means avoiding tourists.
:11 I should have been a fashion designer. All you do is bring in hot girls to try on clothes in front of you, and then you're allowed to nitpick about the body parts you don't like, a la the Colonel Sanders approach- Don't like the breasts? Try the thighs. Don't like the thighs? Try our delicious new biscuits... Crap. Now I'm hungry and horny.
:17 You know things aren't going well when the designer has to give you pointers on how to model and you cry after every meeting *cough* Frenchgirl *cough*
:20 Every season during go-sees, a few girls don't make it back to the final area by the deadline (BritMcKey). I never understand why- it doesn't matter how well your go-sees go if you don't meet the deadline. On a related note, I've seen wayyy too much ANTM and it's detrimental to my life.
:23 Saudi Arabia wins the challenge. Her prizes are clothes or windmills or clogs or something.
:30 Tyra is the photographer this week, giving her an excellent opportunity to be over-t
he-top and overzealous... She tells Blondboobs to model like "Oliver Twist," a suggestion that I'm guessing includes porridge and cockneyed accents. Consider yourself at 'ome.
:35 This must be the Braless Wonder episode.
:40 Time for the judging. I'd say Frenchgirl and BiVegan are in the bottom two.
:47 The judges ripped Frenchgirl for being timid, and now they tell BiVegan she is still a control freak. One of them mentions BiVegan is 18. Eighteen!?!? If she's 18, then I'm 45... They tell her to scream and let her hair down, which at this point looks like Carrot Top made out with a blender.
:50 BritMcKey, who rocked the photo shoot, looks like a celebrity and I can't decide which one. Natasha Henstridge, perhaps?
:55 Blondboobs gets first place this week. So much for being too commercial. Unrelated note: All the girls are now wearing bras, judging by the lack of shirt raisins seen during the photo shoot.
:56 Bottom two: Frenchgirl and BiVegan. Why can't I be this good at predicting the Kentucky Derby or the Super Bowl? Maybe because there's no catwalk involved.
:57 BiVegan goes home. Frenchgirl responds to the judges' confidence in her by meekly saying "Thank you." That'll show 'em... Now that BiVegan is going home, there's no one left to make unsolicited judgements on the other girls.
On next week's episode, all the girls get drunk and make out with boys. I am not making this stuff up.

i have waited for this day! first comment on a TV post. (i'm pretty much a specialist. haha.)

you have it spot on. these gosees are some of my favorite episodes.

bi-vegan annoys the crap out of me, i'm so glad she went home.

Ben said...

I think the dutch are just jaded when it comes to video cameras following around reality show contestants, having created Big Brother and all its glory.

Miss Tiff said...

I'm glad BiVegan went home. She annoyed me. Not a big fan of Frenchgirl either.

SouthernBelle said...

I love your play-by-plays!

It was a good ep, not outstanding but pretty satisfying. My money is on Saudi Arabia for the win - and I predict FrenchGirl goes home next week.

I actually think BiVegan had the prettiest face of the lot, but if she can't take direction well she's not going to make it too far. I hate BlondBoobs, she has no chin and it's disturbing.

And I'm super pumped for next weeks debaucherous episode. It looks to be almost as good as the Project Runway where Kenley sassed Heidi Klum ("I wasn't going for elegant, HEIDI."

Do you think Wrestler McGee (aka McKey) will get in trouble from her bf for rolling around on the floor with Random Dutch Model Dude?

Andy said...

Siovhan: The go-sees are always a trainwreck. A wonderful, huggable trainwreck
Ben: Good point. I'm still wondering why the producers chose Amsterdam, save for the brothels and debauchery and oh now I figured it out
Tiff- I think Frenchie is misunderstood, to a point, but being be a model with no confidence is a bad career choice.
Belle- Thanks. And I think you're making good predictions; recall that I chose Saudi to win as well. I think Wrestler McGee will get in trouble, too.

Andy said...

I also like how I go back and forth between writing "Saudi" and "Saudia." Evidently, I like to make up country spellings.

Lump said...

you're such a girl. do you watch Stylista too? :) I DO! haha

stealthnerd said...

Loves it! I just hope next week's episode includes a cheating incident like Shandi's in Cycle 2 that will result in a panicked overseas call to a significant other with a freakishly high voice.

The mounts which are displayed here in the pics are good and also with good design like this only even I have found a company which is having LCD brackets according to TV/system model no and also he is having a great quality products. You Can get still more information about television bracketst which I browsed on internet can fetch you help Another piece of advice would be to mount the bracket to a solid wall.

123brackets can be fitted to make efficient use of space in any room
