  • I love watching this show because these girls mostly have no clue to the real world. They know they’re going on a modeling show yet no one reads up on photographers or designers? All they think they have to do is “look pretty”.moreless

    I had a favorite from the start but I also knew that my favorite wouldn’t go far. Why because she’s not the “norm”. She also has a lot of tattoos and I could understand that they would be hard to cover up in some photo shoots. ANTM is about High Fashion and until you’re well known I don’t think you can be that “different” this early. I liked the Bettie Page looking chick sorry I don’t recall her name. She was very attractive and she seemed smart. So she went home the first cut. I was sad to see it happen. I really wanted to see what they would if anything do with all her art.

    Over all I think it’s off to a good start.moreless
  • This One Of The Most Funny Americas Next Top Model I have ever seen.

    This Episode was Like Crazy I could not stop cracking up about about that Girl Started Yelling at them. And I though that i was gonna bust a gut when Jay Alexander said"I dont do Push Ups Ill Do Poses Though". And My Favorite 2 people of the season is the plus sized models. They are the people who are gonna show(just like tyra) That you dont have to be size 0 to be a model or pretty!And My Least Favortie Girl Is That Girl From Russia.She is so Full Of Her Self. She Thinks Shes Better than Everyone esle And I am sorry to say but she isnt!moreless
  • the girls go to boot camp

    and it kinda sucked to see some poeople go home but it seemed like the rest had fun at the party

    i hope tyra makes the right decision and picks the girls who deserve to run for americas next top model
  • New girls fly to Los Angels to start ANTM cycle 8.

    I think this season will be pretty good. Heather was funny and I wish they kept her in the finale 13. I like Jael the best. She is cool. People think she is alot like Jade but I don't think she is. They were right when they said there would be more plus size girls which is cool because they are pretty. I also like Renee because she is pretty cool and pretty. She had a baby and she still looks great. Hopefully when I have a baby I will look like that and not end up fat like some people do.moreless
  • Tyra's Top model must be articulate

    I thought that it was a nice diplay of nationalities. I thoutght that several of the girls picture were flat. I think that Kathleen was extremly pretty and had the talent to make it to top 5 at least . She lost when she opened her mouth. Um a " Animal do die naturally like poeple rigth". She messed up when she showed how absolutly lost she was she should have asked for an emtion and she would have had a nice pic. Too bad I'd rather see that pasty face meany go( she looks great in pic but her photo was flat. and that [pretty big girl I ddidn't think she took direct well and her pic was flat.) Well we'll see next week.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (14)

    • (yelling like a drill sargeant)
      Heather: Get down and do pushups, can you not follow directions?!
      Miss Jay: I don't do pushups, baby. I'll do a pose, you not gonna get no pushups.

    • Tyra: Why is your weave so thin?
      Cassandra: I went to get a wig sewn on to my head.
      (Tyra, Jay and Miss Jay all laugh)
      Cassandra: I'm ghetto. I'm ghetto, I admit it.

    • Jay (About Dionne): I love that she has diarrhea of the mouth because we don't have to hear in a photograph.

    • Jay: I do have my favorites, what about you?
      Ms Jay: I do but I'm not speaking about it. Every time I speak about my favorites, they disappear!

    • Natalie: I really like Audrey Hepburn. I love her in Dinner at Tiffany's.
      Tyra: Dinner at Tiffany's?
      Natalie: I'm sorry. Lunch at, brunch at Tiffany's. I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
      Tyra (Laughing): Lunch at Tiffany's?
      Jay: Guess what hunny? It was breakfast.

    • Samantha (About her hometown): I think the biggest thing that ever happened was the Butter Bean Festival.

    • Kathleen: My Grandma has no booty. My Mama has no booty. Then therefore I have no booty. Okay, I'm a black girl with no ass. But I have . . . That's what I have. I have . . . (flashes other girls)

    • Ms. Jay (About Natasha): I was just curious, about how many stamps to get her here?

    • Jay: Look I'll do some push-ups for you, baby. You can go yell at him.

    • Tyra: And I want you to be all you can be, not bitch all you can bitch.

    • Jael: It's just modeling. We're not curing cancer here.

    • Jay Manuel (during a shoot about gay marriage): I like the smiling, why don't you guys have a happy moment? Lesbians aren't serious all the time.

    • Brittany: I get very loud. I talk probably almost at this level like when I'm sitting at home.
      Tyra: Have you ever had your hearing tested? You think that has something to do with it?
      Brittany: Pardon?

    • Tyra: Why you screaming so loud?
      Kathleen: Cause you're so pretty! Oh my God!!!
      Miss Jay: What about me?

  • NOTES (2)

    • It is the first time in ANTM history that there are two plus size women in the finals. In fact this year has the heaviest contestant ever, Diana O'Connell weighing 198 pounds.

    • There must still be bad blood between Tyra Banks and ANTM Cycle 1 winner Adrianne Curry because although the theme of the house is ANTM Museum, none of Adrianne's pictures were included. Not even on the "Winner's Wall", where every past winner was included except her. (Note: CariDee is also absent but that's because taping of the 8th Cycle began before the finale of the 7th Cycle had been aired.)


    • Tyra's boot camp pep talk includes several references to military themes:

      "Can you handle the truth?" - A Few Good Men

      "I love the smell of hair and makeup in the morning. It smells like victory" - Apocalypse Now

      "I want you to be all you can be" - Army advertising campaign

      "I want top guns!" - Top Gun
