Episode Summary

It's makeover time, and chaos unfolds as one girl's makeover is changed twice and another's new look is painful. Meanwhile, a call from home leaves one girl devastated, while a nude candy-coated photo shoot leaves another model nervous.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Stop Crying!!!

    I think that the two plus size models that are on the show this season look amazing. I wouldn't even consider them to be plus size at at. It's make overtime again!!! They always make for the better episodes. Sara's cut was cute and the color was fabulus.Jaselene's hair was cute but it wasn't anything drastic. Felisha hair was really cute and the color fit her a lot better. I didnt really like the red on brittany, or the stlye on Cassandra's. Poor Joel had to sit and endore eight hours of hair styling to turn aroung and have it taken out. I felt really bad for her because the sudden death of her friend but she still kept it together and was able to produce a fabulus photo at the end. Renee was making me sick the whole episode talking about everyone behind their back. Somebody just send her home. I think the judges made a good decision sending Cassandra home. She was beautiful but she just couldn't get with it during her last photo shoot.moreless
  • Okay, the crying is starting to get annoying. Jael had good reasons to cry but Brittany, girl just get over it all, get over yourself.

    Bring on the makeovers. Okay, why is it that the girls who have long hair normally get it cut off and the girls with shorter hair get hair extensions? And what's the deal with turning most of the blondes brunette's? Poor Jael, they were giving her hair extensions and she sat in the chair for 8 hours with them pulling and digging at her head only for Mr Jay to come up as say that it's just not working out and told them to take it all out.

    The photo shoot found the models made up like candy. It was just strange. It reminded me a bit of last seasons big hair thing with the moving things in it. I just didn't feel hardly any of the pictures worked much less did it look high fashion to me.

    Nastasha had translating problems again and she did this weird upside down shot. And the plus size models, I felt for them. They were actually told to suck it in. How awful.

    At judging Cassandra was told that her beauty was not coming through in her photos and was sent home.moreless
  • The models get makeovers, compete in a makeup challenge, and do a sweets photo shot. Another girl is eliminated.

    Although this was a pretty good episode, I feel that it would have been better if they had not tried to fit so much into an hour. I felt like there were several places where it would have worked better if they showed us more of what was going on. The makeover was one of the best parts of the episode. It was great to see some of the girls get completely different looks that will help them to become better models. Some of the girls did not get very big changes but they didn’t need it as much. However, the makeup challenge did not go as well as the makeovers. I think it would have worked better if we saw more of the girl’s faces and heard more about what the judges felt. I also did not like the photo shoot. I thought the challenge was kind of weird and I didn’t really like how all the girls were basically dressing the same way. It was also hard to tell if they were using good expressions, because things like candy just sit there. One of the main problems with it was that they weren’t the right size and they didn’t really make sense in the picture. The one good thing about the shoot was that it was interesting to see how the girls reacted to having to get naked. I didn’t think it was a bad shoot but the ones in the last two weeks have been more interesting. Even though I did not think some parts of the episode were done well I really liked the talk before the elimination. I thought they did a good job summarizing how each model has been doing in the competition. I also liked how they pointed out problems with some of their wardrobes. I was not particularly happy or sad when Cassandra was eliminated. I thought there were some girls that were worse than her and I never got the chance to get to know her.

    In this episode we got to know a few of the girls better and we got a chance to see what has been going on inside the house. We really got to know about how Brittany has been acting and what Jaele has been going through. Even though it is good to learn more about certain people I feel like there are some people that we don’t know very well. If the show did not try to fit so much into one hour we would have more time to get to know the people.moreless
  • The girls get thier makeovers

    this episode was soo good

    i loved all the makeovers

    and i feel really sorry for jael

    she is soo strong to keep continuing in the competition

    when something like this happened to me i didnt really do anything becuz it was sooo hard

    i think renee should really change her attitude

    she is getting annoying
  • this episode can be explained in one word and it was so 'Deelishis.

    okay yall this is episode 3 and this is my favorite episode its the makeovers and right now im thinkin some of these girls desperetly need the make-over. they walk in and im thinkin here comes the drama , here comes the water work , like in every past season of ANTM so this season , no body was cryin and then came Jael but she had a good reason i know my ass would'nt like sitin there for 8 hours just for them to take it out. Anyways later they take part in a challenge and they runnin around in a forest and Cassandra started freakin out because she was late , now i dont think Britnney deserved to win because she was runnin around lookin like Bozo the clown with her hair all missed up just didnt look nice to me she just looked like a clown. So in the girls next photo photo shot they pose as sweets so its a pretty cool photo shoot , but how do you really pose like a Sweet , i just dont get it. Okay so elimination is real heated between Cassandra and Diana and everyone starting to cry and Diana gets her picture and Cassandra goes home. Okay so the winner of this episode is clearly Jael because she endured torchure on this episode " those people with weaves diffenatly know that she endured pain " and then her friend died , but she still came up , ontop and the loser is probly Britnney lookin like a sraight up Clown in this episode. The tip of this episode is don't ever distract yo self from the game this is Americas next top model so try and be Americas next top model not a friend that is what cassandra was doin and thats why she got sent home.moreless
