  • First ep, cycle 11

    This is by far the corniest episode in the series history. And it was not good corny. The dialogue was unbelievably forced, the costumes were awful, the set looked ridiculous and the special effects were so cheap it looked like some 12 year old did them on their computer. The girls were introduced fine, no one really stood out very much and they did a good job about not making it too obvious who they were going to choose, although it was still obvious. And really, which one of those producers tipped the girls off that there was a tranny in the house because she 'figured it out' way too easy. There was too much ridiculousness in this episode.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Kacey: Isis, I thought she looked a little manly. Like, I have small boobs too, but her boobs...she has no boobs!

    • Sheena: Yo, America's Next Top Model...y'all are about to be Sheena-fied!

    • Miss Jay: (about Sheena) She has the booty of a black girl, the grace of a Japanese geisha, and the class of Korean princess.
      Mr. Jay: Are you sure about the class?

    • Clark: I'm an extremely competitive person. I'll manipulate a girl in a heartbeat if I can gain use out of it.

    • Veronique: I grew up Mormon my whole life. When I was 16, I started dating my boyfriend that I was with for 3 1/2 years and my parents found out I had sex with him and they sent me to a lockdown facility for 3 months.

  • NOTES (4)

    • This cycle instead of having a Covergirl of the Week, we have Covergirl Presents Top Models in Action, where we get an update on past ANTM contestants. This week it's Tocarra from cycle 3: in 2008 she posed for a 14-page spread for an all-back edition of Italian Vogue shot by Steven Mizel.

    • Before this episode even aired, the overseas location was leaked on the internet when it was reported that Tyra and the girls were spotted filming in Amsterdam.

    • On its premiere airing this episode scored 3.5 million viewers. That's down 1.7 million from its September premiere last year.

    • This is the first time America's Next Top Model has featured a transgendered contestant (Isis).
