Episode Summary

The girls are picked up on a decked out bus where they meet each other and start sizing up the competition. At their very first runway show one girl makes a mistake that could cost her, until another girl steps in to save her. But when the same girl oversleeps for a photo shoot, it's every man for himself and she's left at the loft. At the Adam and Eve themed photo shoot the girls are required to model wearing only sequins and body paint. This doesn't go over well with one of the girls and onr of them decides not to participate. Will that decision cost her the competition?moreless

  • We are introduced to the top girls as they are thrown into the model world. They then do a photo shoot that causes some controversy

    It is a little hard to get into the show when you are just meeting all the girls for the first time. Having them start out with no training was good, but I just felt like the photo shot and the challenge were a little boring. I thought that the girl sleeping in made it interesting and it is always entertaining when a girl doesn't want to do the shoot. The problem with the judging was that it was obvious what would happen. I knew it would come down to the late girl and the girl who didn't do the shoot. I also knew that the girl who didn't make it to the shoot on time would make it through because that could have just been a one time mistake. I didn't love the episode, but that may have just been because I have seen so much of ANTM and it just wasn't as origonal for me, as it was for the people watching it when it first aired. I does look like it is setting up for a good season, with some interesting personalities.moreless
  • It is sad that Jenascia was in the bottom 2 and Anna actually made the right decision.

    It is sad that Jenascia was in the bottom 2 and Anna actually made the right decision. Actually I have witnessed an episode where Tyra talks about girls who try to pose nude. Well this may not be exactly nude but of course she can't stand the thing about being naked in a photoshoot being hidden by paint.
  • If you have never seen Americas Top Model, then this would be a good season to start off with.

    Thus, a brand new season of the hit reality show (Granted I’m writing this 2 years after the show has been on but still) and what an interesting first episode. First off, they are thrown into a runway show in front of the army, navy, firefighters, etc. with absolutely no training whatsoever. Then, their photo shoot has them posing nude with just body paint on. Not just that, they are posing with a guy who just HAPPENS to be naked with no body paint on at all which I find weird. One girl refuses to participate, while the other is just plain late (two to three hours late in fact). My question is why did they keep Jenascia over Anna? But then I replay it in my head, and at least Jenascia was willing to do the photoshoot while Anna had no reason other then that her body is for her husband (well that’s a reason but not good enough for me). This is a good example of what this show is all about. The photoshoot was intresting and so are the women and so far, none of them have annoyed me yet.

    Bottom line: If you have never seen Americas Top Model, then this would be a good season to start off with.
