Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Brit goes home. Go-sees

    Well I was shocked when Jael went home last week. Brittany was so fake. Even Renee wanted Jael to stay and its not fair that she went home. For the Go-sees, I really thought

    that Brittany could've done a lot better. The emotions got the best of her. In my opinion, I thought that Natasha did the worst. Sexualness doesn't really work. Brittany did get outraged when she was late. She lashed out so much that I didn't know she had it in her. Her trauma costed her spot. I'm sure Jaslene was happy when she won. Even Natasha was happy. Dionne had such a mean face. She didn't use her mean face in other past shots. Now she is like mean.moreless
  • Brit goes home

    This episode was much better than the last one. I think this is a challenge that they do every episode and there is always someone who is late for an interview. Brittany was pissing me off during this challenge because even though her taxi supposedly didn't pick her up where she had told them to she should have just sucked it up. It wasn't like she was going to win anyway. Nobody wanted to book her. At he end I was a little undecided on who I wanted to go home because I felt like Dionne just wasn't getting it in her photo shoot and Brittany was. But at the end they sent Brittany home and I was glad.moreless

  • Brittany went home.

    In this episode the girls have to go on their go-sees, none of the designers wanted to hire Brittany. Then Brittany ends up being really late to Priscilla's and she goes crazy and blames her taxi driver for being late because he didn't meet her where she wanted him to. Natasha who was late as well, tries to calm Brittany down but Brittany starts flipping out on Natasha. Brittany is so loud that Priscilla and the other girls can hear her screaming outside. At judging Dionne and Brittany end up in the bottom two. Brittany's photos are a lot stronger than Dionne's but she ends up going home because of her personality. This was somewhat of a sad episode for me because Brittany was my favorite girl and I didn't want her to go, but I kind of saw it coming. Other than her being eliminated this was a good episode.moreless

    yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaah!!!!!!! at lasssttt brittany was sent home!!!!! i couldnt wait for this to happen!!! like when she was in the bottom two with dionne i was like....please let dionne stay and brittany go home!! and then they said: dionne congratulations and i was like yyyyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy at lasssssstttt brittany go home!!!!!!!! i was sick and tired of her:

    1) she shouted at natasha when she was trying to calm her down...and even priscilla was annoyed...i mean they could hear her scream from inside! and then in the panel she cried AGAIN

    2) the taxi driven DIDNT have the fault...brittany didnt tell him to meet her at cooper street...she just said im going to cooper street!!!!!! and then she was like...i just got 1 minute late and se had been like 30 minutes late!! liarrr

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • For the first time in Top Model history every client that was seen on the go sees said they would not hire one of the models. The model was Brittany.

    • Dionne is the first model in ANTM history to ask to keep the clothes from her go-sees.

    • The episode is named for Brittany, who claims she told her taxi driver to wait for her in front of the building of her last go-see. He's not there, and as a result Brittany arrives late and is disqualified from the challenge.

    • Call out order:


      Brittany and Dionne are in the bottom two this week. Brittany's photos are much stronger but her personality and attitude sends her home.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Wayne Cooper: (about Brittany) Very uncoordinated. Her whole brain is trying to work out how to catwalk.

    • Jaslene (seeing Natasha run to beat the time deadline, which she has missed): Look at her running for nothing. Run, girl!

    • Natasha (while Brittany is yelling about missing the deadline after the go-see challenge): I just want to tell you that some people have war in their countries.

    • Jaslene: I make it back to Priscilla's a minute before, and I'm like 'Where's Natasha, where's Brittany?' We have two slackers.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Each week Tyra does a photo shoot similar to the one the contestants do. This week was a swimsuit shoot and Tyra wore the same one-piece she was wearing in the unflattering photos that wound up on the internet, spurring rumors that she had gained a lot of weight. She would go on to wear the same bathing suit on her talk show and pronounce that her critics could "kiss my fat ass!"

    • Natasha was voted Covergirl of the Week.
