  • make-overs...

    The girls get make overs in this episode. I really like to see their transformations. Some of their hair turned out great and I almost want some of their haristyles, but others turned out bad. I think the bald girl looked great. I think the two blondes looked terrible. I hated their hair. The photo shoots were interesting. They all looked like was pretty funny. I'm not a frequent watcher of America's Next Top Model, but I was flipping through and it looked like a good episode, and it was. Overall, good episode mainly because of the drama about make overs.moreless
  • The girls get their makeovers

    I thought that Victoria was definitely the right one to go. When Twiggy started to talk to her about having a prickly disposition, she definitely should not have reacted the way she did, Twiggy was right and she should take the good criticism instead of cutting her off and saying something like "let's get one thing straight..." it was obnoxious and in general Twiggy is pretty nice so I definitely would not have given her attitude. I also really don't like a lot of the makeovers this season. The totally ruined Saleisha and Lisa's hair while a good idea to go short, was way too much and makes her look so generic. This is definitely not my favorite season.moreless
  • Didn't want Victoria gone!

    Victoria was my favorite this season, I just really liked her look. It was diffrent and, I don't know, I just liked it. But throughout the whole episode, she kept saying how she didn't really want to be a model, or didn't know how, so you could kind of guess she was going home. Too bad, it didn't seem like she wanted it, so I was okay when she left. However, Bianca needs to suck it up because there were other girls bald on ANTM and they worked with it just fine. The photo shoot was cool looking and I think most of the pics turned out nicely.moreless
  • It would have been a great episode if one of the best girls wasn't eliminated.

    I have to give this episode such a low score because one of my favorites went home. I usually don't base reality shows just on who goes home because the producers have no control over it, but in this they do. I felt like Victoria was a very interesting person and I wanted to see how she would do on top model even though she had no experience. They usually keep the wild and crazy models because they are interesting and they should do the same for her. They should have just put her in the bottom two and given her a warning.

    Besides that I loved the makeovers. It was great how they had the metemorophis screen that allowed us to see what they would look like. Most of them ended up looking a lot better. Bianca's hair problems added some great drama, to the show and she ended up looking good. The photo shot was also good. It was fun to see them as flowers, and it was neat because they have to act like flowers even though flowers have no human emotion.moreless
  • Make-over time for the girls.

    All of the remaining contestants got makeovers and some had more changes than others. Bianca's hair was so damaged, that they had to shave it all off, and she was given a medical wig for photoshoots. The photoshoot for this episode was every girl was a plant. They really stuck that out there, from moss to a rose. Victoria gave Twiggy that attitude of hers again at panel, which I hoped Victoria would be sent home for that because she is very rude, and sure enough, Victoria was in the bottom two with Saleisha, but Victoria was sent home. Good episode.moreless
