  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • (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

    • 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.)

  • Allusions

    • 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
