In the backroom, Yoanna breaks the heel on one of her shoes while Mercedes hits the runway again, looking ultra sexy! Yoanna puts on Mercedes’ old shoes and heads out. She is looking amazing as well. As the show comes to an end, Tyra says they both did great. Yoanna laughs about the shoe thing and Mercedes says how much fun she had. However, Tyra Mail tells them that the judges will decide tomorrow who the winner will be!
Yoanna says she loved the experience and never would have expected all this. Mercedes has been working for this her whole life. Yoanna thinks Mercedes is great, but wants to win herself. She says she WILL win! Mercedes likes Yoanna as well, but doesn’t want her to win. They walk into the elimination room and Tyra says that the judges have watched both of them transform, but only one will enter the real world of modeling. The winner will receive a modeling contract, a fashion spread, and her very own cosmetics campaign. Also, this will be the last time we will be reintroduced to the judges. We have the world’s very first supermodel, Janice Dickinson. Fashion editor for Jane magazine Eric Nicholson, and everyone’s favorite photographer, Nigel Barker. There is no guest judge this time because each guest judge was only there for one week. These four judges have seen them from the beginning and know them the best. It’s time for individual evaluations.
The judges watch some footage from the fashion show. They feel that Mercedes had the attitude they were looking for on the runway and Janice comments on Mercedes’s booty. Yoanna has some great end shots and Tyra says they both mixed in great, but Mercedes posed too much at the end of the runway. They look at several of their photos from the whole season and compare them. From the first shot, the Garden of Eden shoot, they saw both of their potentials. Their face shots look good, but Yoanna takes the prize, but not according to Janice, who loves Mercedes. For their celebrity shots, both of them nailed it, but Mercedes captured Billie Holiday in her eyes. In the Solstice sunglasses shot, Yoanna looked better in the face, but Mercedes takes it in length. In their nude shots they both look sexy. As far as their most recent shots, the beauty shots, Mercedes has a great facial expression, but Yoanna’s could be the cover to a magazine. Now the judges will deliberate and when the girls come back in the room, they will find out who the winner is.
Janice likes Mercedes a lot. Eric likes Yoanna and says she always makes an impression. Tyra thinks Yoanna’s knowledge of the business is great. Nigel is a fan of Mercedes’s personality. Janice just worries about Mercedes having the face for fashion. All the judges are up in arms at this point. The girls walk back in and say they were uncertain outside waiting. They have both come a long way and are about to find out who will win the competition. Yoanna started out as a quirky and weird girl and transformed into this stylish being. That does not happen often. Mercedes was cut and had the mall look when she arrived, but has proved that she can be edgy. She has made the transformation as well. Only one can win though, and that winner is… Yoanna! Mercedes and Yoanna hug. Tyra says that Yoanna has lived the fashion life since childhood, and the fashion industry better hold on tight because Yoanna will rock it! Mercedes cries because she has lost her dream. Aww, Mercedes, I still love you! Yoanna tells the camera that she was never a cheerleader or on the squad, she was never the homecoming queen, and was always just there. However, now she’s America’s Next Top Model!
You know what? I’m genuinely happy for Yoanna. I’d be lying if I said I’m not disappointed that Mercedes didn’t win, but I’ll live. Yoanna really wanted to win and I’m happy that she has fulfilled her dream. Honestly, I thought Shandi was going to be in the final two with Yoanna, but I predicted that Yoanna would win simply for the fact that she knows so much about the industry. Oh, and I can admit when I’m wrong – in my preview article, I said she would be boring. Yoanna was anything but that! However, that’s for another article in the near future, so look out for that. As for me, now I get to wait for next season to begin. I can’t wait, and good luck ladies! Oh, and one final note – I love you, MY Mercedes!
