  • I'm glad Joanie got her teeth fixed.

    8.3
    Joanie is a pretty decent contender, so I'm happy for her. Even if she doesn't win (which she probably won't) at least she got something out of the show. You know, besides the experience modeling.

    Jade I still don't like. But I must say, she takes great pictures. Pulease don't let that chick win. All in all, I'm pulling for Danielle. I like the gap in her teeth. When I first saw it, I was like, ugh. But now that I've gotten used to it, I really like it. And it's not like it she smiles so broadly in her photos that you really notice it. I don't think I've ever seen it in her photos matter fact.

    Furonda I felt should have been gone a long time ago. She's so ugly. But I will admit; her pics come out nice also.

  • Being able to deal with criticism, and wanting to make changes with respect to your career.

    8.2
    Sometimes when I watch this show, I\'m so thrilled I never decided to be a model. Being tall (6\'0) I was always encouraged to do so, but modeling it TOUGH. I don\'t think I had the mentality to deal with the industry, and all their demands. I think what Top Model shows in addition to having the looks, you have to have a strong mental and emotional edge, or you will be eaten alive.



    Jade is a piece of work. The whole time Tyra was trying to help her by telling her to listen, she kept shaking her head, saying I\'m not being fake, I\'m not being this, I\'m not being that. Jade is so beautiful, but she needs to open her mind and listen!!! Learn, accept the criticism!!! It\'s probably one of the reasons why she is not the model she expects to be right now.



    The getting the teeth fixed segment was intense. I really felt for that one young lady who had to go in and it took 18 hours to fix her mouth. She did look fantastic when it was all said and done.



    I\'m still trying to figure out who will win, I thought I had it narrowed down, but now I\'m not so sure. I\'m not surprised Brooke was finally sent packing. Honestly, I thought she should have gone home 3 shows ago, but the judges obviously wanted to give her a chance.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Call out order:

      Joanie
      Furonda
      Nnenna
      Sara
      Danielle

      Jade and Brooke are in the bottom two; Jade for seeming fake and Brooke for not living up to her model potential despite many chances to do so. Brooke is sent home.

    • The challenge this week was for the girls to deal with a very critical agent. Jade won and picked Nnenna to share her prize, which was a visit from a loved one; for Jade it was her mother, for Nnenna it was her boyfriend, John.

    • The title refers to Joanie because she got surgery to fix her snaggle-tooth.

    • The Girls' Doll Shoot:

      Brooke - Glam Doll
      Danielle - Marionette
      Furonda - Rag Doll
      Jade - Mannequin
      Joanie - Ventriliquist Dummy
      Nnenna - Baby Doll
      Sara - Teen Doll

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Tyra: Jade, you stand before me not because of bad pictures. But you know what I saw when you were tearing up? Somebody that was very...(searches for the right word)... fake.

    • (going through her portfolio)
      Joanie: This is one of my best shoots to date.
      Deprise: This one? Yech.

  • NOTES (3)

    • Original International Air Dates:
      Australia: January 21, 2008 on Network 10
      Czech Republic: January 8, 2012 on Prima LOVE

    • Despite what was seen on the show, Joanie's teeth were not fixed so quickly. According to her MySpace page and an interview on The Tyra Banks Show, the whole process actually took 6 months. What we saw on the show was Joanie receiving one piece temporaries, which she wore until the competition was over. She had Veneers permanently cemented to her real teeth once the extractions had healed six months later.

    • In this episode Danielle chooses not to have the gap in her teeth closed, to which the panel tells her she'll never be a model unless she fixes it. Everyone seems to be forgetting Lauren Hutton, a supermodel in the 70's and 80's who has a pronounced gap in her teeth. Far from holding her back, it became her trademark.
