  • i loved the episode but i still hate tyra

    7.6
    When this episode started i said well...nobody cares about furonda anymore so it will be entertaining



    But when the girls go on those "tuk-tuk" to meet the designers everything just collapsed for me. The girls were gorgeous (except for Jade...who i just can't stand sory). When they arrive late to see that woman(dont remember her name) they say Danielle would have won and they show her the clothes which would be hers if she had arrived in time!!!!! man...that's so gross they cant shouw what would have been hers!!! they made her wish what she couldnt have! (Jade got there really late trying to blend in...that was funny)



    Then they go home and meet Tyra and she tells them all about the Tsunami and Danielle gets too involved with the story and later ir affects her performance.



    photoshoooooooooot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nigel is (like we say in Uruguay) "un papi!!!!!!!", he was sooo hot!. The girls did well except for Sara who had a hard time (altough she has the best body) and Danielle who is just depressed for touching the water where many died (RIP).



    Then...judging room. Almost all the natural photos of the girls are just blahh and Sara is told by Tyra that she look like a girl who is saying "hey i'm trying out for antm")

    The best photo comes from Joanie (altough i must say Danielle's one was awesome!! i thought it was far better)



    This week, Sara and Danielle are in the bottom two. Dani is said that her speech is totally unacceptable for Covergirl and Sara has progressed so much that the judges ask themselves if she has anything more to give and then.....sara gets eliminated!!! phewwww for Danielle she almost got out (i loveeeeeeeeeee her)moreless
  • I can't believe Jade didn't get eliminated ... AGAIN !!

    6.2
    I can't believe Jade didn't get eliminated ... AGAIN !! That girl really needs to go. She's so stuck up and arrogant. I haven't been able to stand her from the beginning. And she was over 1 hour late after the go-sees !! That should've been a key thing in the decision making. Although it would be kind f funny to see her being part of the last two, all sure of herself and all, and see Joanie win since she keeps putting her down.



    I'm glad that Sarah is gone though. She was getting on my nerve. The final drop in my opinion was when she copied Joanie's poses with the elephant in the last episode. I mean come on !!! She lacked variety.



    Can't wait for the finale !!

  • This is becomming tougher & tougher to watch.

    5.7
    It\'s hard to watch a reality television based competition when it\'s obvious that the judges have their own adgenda instead of picking a deserving winner.



    I did not mind that Sara left, she really was incredibly stiff in front of the cameras, she had virtually no range and the only thing she really had going for her is her incredible height. Please do not misunderstand me here, I think Sara is a beautiful girl, I really do, however that does not always translate into a modeling career. Her look seemed a tad too generic & in order to open up her expression range I think she should start taking a few acting classes.



    What I really wanted (as I have stated in previous posts) is for Jade to get booted. I have to agree with the majority on this one as Jade continues to be one of the most vile creatures ever to force herself onto my television screen. I don\'t think she is ugly nor do I think she is beautiful - she is very interesting to look at though, it\'s just too bad that her personality is so repulsive as it ruins the whole effect.



    The thing that really bother me about this is how the judges can go on about Danielles accent & how she could never be a spokesmodel yet fail to point out that Jade\'s viper-style personality would prohibit her in the same way. Who is going to want someone like Jade promoting their products? What company in their right mind would hire a girl that the majority of the public can not stand? As I\'ve said before I think the only reason that she has gone through from round to round is to keep enough viewers watching & hoping to see her get the boot.



    I hope things don\'t go this way when Canada\'s Next Top Model airs.........moreless
  • Hello typical Reality pit falls

    6.0
    I agree with pretty much everyone that Jade should have had her keester rejected eons ago. Reality has already told Jade she doesn\\\'t have what it takes. But lets face it Tyra and her producing crew know that all of us seeing red over this \\\"character\\\" guarantees she\\\'ll be stickin\\\' around \\\'reality TV\\\' until (close to) the end. We already saw this with the vacant Gina. Dumb as a doornail but she saved her ass by getting wasted and spluttering incoherently (and entertainingly) for an extra few episodes.

    I think that Sara was the logical choice to go next, but take that with a grain of salt. As you get near the end they will come up with nitty gritty \\\"reasons\\\" that one girl deserves it over another. If I hear Tyra say something like \\\"you\\\'re the girl who has become amazing over these weeks, but are you amazing ENOUGH???\\\"I will barf. Puhlease. Jade will be given the boot eventually as will Danielle because of her incoherent accent. I actually like her best but imagining her doing one of those covergirl commercials would be hilarious (then again the constant lackluster ramblings of Nicole gives Danielle a reason to hope). To Sum up: This episode was average in that nothing interesting happened and no one girl stood out for better or worse.moreless
  • Jade should have been eliminated WEEKS ago! Why is she still here?? Danielle's accent needs to go! Sara had no dedication, and Joanie is predicted to win!

    7.0
    The competition begins with a few go-sees in the city of Bangkok, and for the first time in ANTM history, no one wins the challenge because everyone was late returning. The girls slowly get over the fact that no one won even though Danille would have won and were flown off to the paradise of Phuket for some down time and a swimsuit photo shoot. Sara and Danielle's pictures were amazing, but they each have characteristics that are still a problem in the judges eyes. In the end, Sara's pictures are not enough to keep her in the running and she is eliminated.



    If you ask me, Jade should have been eliminated like 5 episodes ago or even more. She is SUCH a stuck up person and no one will go anywhere with that type of attitude in the modeling buisness.



    I think Joanie will win, she is so pretty and amazing!



    Danielle needs to lose the accent, but we all know that!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • There is no go-see challenge winner for the first time in America's Next Top Model history. Danielle would have been the winner had she showed up on time.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Danielle: It's hot outside, it's humid. Do you know what that does to a black girl's head?

    • (looking at the models' pictures)
      Tyra: Who should go home?
      Nigel: (pointing) That girl should go home.
      Tyra: Twiggy?
      Twiggy: (pointing) Her... should go home.
      Tyra: "Her should go home?"
      Jay Alexander: Ooo! She's been around too many black folks!

    • Jade (talking about mini-cabs called 'tut-tuts'): If it was up to me, I wouldn't have chose to ride in a toot-toot...hoop-hoop...poop-poop...tut-tut... hooptie, ok?

    • J. Alexander: But you weren't in a tut-tut, you were in a dress-dress. You should have been in there complete, full-on model not even thinking about the tut-tut, think about the dress-dress and the pose-pose.
      Danielle: I remember thinking in my head, "Danielle, you're trippin'."

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Danielle: Hotel...understand? Right there, do not pass "Go", do not collect your $200...hotel!

      Danielle references the game Monopoly.

    • Nigel: It's good to be a judge.

      Nigel's comment as Joanie jumps on him after a photo shoot is a reference to the recurring joke in Mel Brooks' movie History Of The World Part I, "It's good to be the king."
