  • Cool show.

    10
    I'm not a girly girl and I've never wanted to be a model, but I knew girls that did and would have loved to try out for this show. I really enjoyed this episode. I really liked Adriane and hope she goes far. This episode started the show out with a bang and I'm looking forward to watching more. There are a couple of girls that I want to see go home very quickly. Especially Robyn; she thinks that she is just all that and in my honest opinion, she isn't. I think she sometimes makes christians look bad and didn't appreciate it.moreless
  • Go Adrianne.

    7.5
    I thought this was an interesting idea for a show, but wasn't sure if it was going to live up to all the hype. I think its cool how Tyra wants to help other young women achieve their dream. I enjoyed this episode and see potential in the show. I love Adrianne's look and attitude, as well her voice. I can't stand Robin. She's gonna get more and more annoying as the show goes on, I just know it. I hope she goes home quickly. I felt sorry for Elyse, because she doesn't believe in God and unfortunately that will get her a ticket straight to hell.moreless

  • The top ten girls are selected and they have a bikini photo shoot

    8.6
    I liked this episode. It was fun to see them narrow down the girls and pick out the top eight. I liked how they showed their personalities and they didn’t just stress how crazy they are, like they have done in the current seasons. It was also interesting to see them adjust to living in their new house. I thought it was weird that they got a bikini wax but it ended up making sense. I didn’t really like how they added the new girls. It seemed too random; they should have chosen 10 people originally. I was glad they choose ten though; it would have gone by too fast if they only had nine. I liked how they were responsible for getting to the shoot by themselves and I could not believe some of them were late. The bikini competition would not have been that interesting but the weather really made it exciting. I thought it was enjoyable to see a different group of judges. Janice made it really interesting with her brutally honest comments. I can’t wait to watch more and see what the first season is like.moreless

    Everything started here the Top 10 and all. Well too bad Tessa got eliminated may God bless her and may another Tessa come in the next cycles. I meant the name. Well peace out y'all. Everything started here the Top 10 and all.Everything started here the Top 10 and all.Everything started here the Top 10 and all. That's the main idea.

  • QUOTES (5)

  • NOTES (1)

    • The tube tops that the girls wore in the publicity poster of Cycle 1 came from Tyra's closet since the show didn't receive much of a budget for wardrobe. As a matter of fact, Tyra bought an airline ticket just for the clothing for fear they might get lost if they were checked as baggage.
