  • The girls learn about walking the runway and then they do another swimwear shoot.

    Watching them learn how to walk the run way was interesting. It was funny how so many of them where not very good at in. I loved J Alexandar in this episode. It was great how he demonstrated the walks. I felt like this episode was not very good because there was too much arguing. The whole argument over telling the girls about the shoot was silly and it was annoying to watch. The show has also turned into too much of an argument about religion. I also did not like how they focused so much on Elise. She is interesting but they put too much focus on her and we barley no what the other girls are like. I also did not like the photo shoot. It was practically the same as the last one, without the cold weather. It didn’t make sense that Katie was eliminated. They should have given her a chance in something besides swimwear. The judges should have explained what they thought of each girl instead of arguing.moreless

  • A story of contradictions as the girls pose for a men's magazine in sexy postures, causing the girl with the 'sexiest' to be eliminated.

    I don't get this episode, perhaps it was meant for a ratings boost because it was the first season and Tyra and co did not think any male demographics would watch. So slap them on a bikini and do a semi soft-porn magazine photo shoot. This troubles me for many reasons, first they eliminated Katie because she was "too sexy". Isn't that the purpose of the photo shoot? I never knew Stuff magazine to be about wholesome images and Puritan looks. I have no idea what the "real" reason for Katie's departure, but to tell her to pose sexy and than lambast her and eliminate her for it, is a double-negative. Second, in all of the later seasons, Tyra makes an exclamation point to the girls about how they shouldn't be posing for sexy men's magazine as it comes across as trashy. Yet here she is, blantantly telling the girls that being a haute couture/runway model means selling your T&A for a men's magazine.moreless
