America’s Next Top Model 9, Episode 9: “I’m A Queen Because…”Page 3
View Printable version of this article
Chantal is next and they watch her commercial. Tyra thinks it’s cute, but she looks like a princess – not a queen. Nigel thinks it’s very her and Tyra feels that she’s a queen because she milks a cow. Chantal, not Tyra. Her photo, because of her outfit, is very down on the farm. Tyra tells Chantal that she needs to learn how to smile in photos, even though her photos are normally very good.
Bianca is called next and they note that she didn’t do the challenge. Bianca says she has issues trusting strangers and Ms. J. tells her she’s in the wrong business. Her commercial is all over the place and is in general a mess. It’s not paced, but Tyra says she looked beautiful in it. Her photo is very standoffish to me, but the judges say it makes her look like a strong black woman.
Next we have Jenah and her main critique from Nigel about her commercial is that it wasn’t sincere at all and there was no charm. Twiggy says she wouldn’t buy the product. In her photo, she looks like a crazy woman. Tyra loves that she went for it and Twiggy seems to be a fan as well. I like it, but she does look crazy.
Saleisha is next and when they watch her commercial, Twiggy says she believes it. Nigel is a huge fan and feels that she really flirted with the camera. He wants that from the rest of the girls as well. In her photo, Tyra says that her smile is off as well because when she smiles, she squints. Saleisha might not be on top like she thinks!
Finally, we have Heather. Her commercial is a huge mess, like we expected it to be. Tyra notes that she couldn’t even mimic the lines when they were fed to her. She insists that she has to be hard and fair on Heather, even though they brought her into the competition knowing that she has Asbergers. Nigel says that she has to focus. When they view her photo though, it’s a different tune. Twiggy says it looks like a new woman and all the judges are in awe at how great she looks. I have to add – Heather looks amazing! Now it’s time for the judges to deliberate and here’s what they have to say:
Nigel thinks that Lisa was weak in the commercial and weak in general. Twiggy thinks that her commercial was a disaster and Tyra is beginning to think that she can’t handle critique, since she wilts every time they say something harsh to her. Ms. J. says that she is still one of his favorite girls.
Chantal is cute to Twiggy and Tyra, while both of them think she had the best commercial. On top of that, they feel her photo was very fluid, but all the judges agree that she still needs work.
Heather looks great in her photo this week, but Twiggy isn’t sure she can hold it together. Nigel adds that it’s disappointing to see her conquer herself. Tyra loves the photo though and had no clue that Heather could pull off the smile and look so sweet.
Then there’s Jenah. Nigel is obviously not happy with her and feels that Jenah is the type of girl that feels she deserves to be there. Tyra begins to wonder if Jenah is even invested in the competition. Uh oh… that could be the kiss of death!
Bianca had no delivery in her commercial this week, but they do like her smile. Nigel says that she has so much more to offer and wants to see it, although he admits that her commercial was really bad.
All the judges feel that Saleisha is very approachable, but Ms. J. just isn’t sure she is getting any better. Nigel says that he can see potential in her and thinks that she is definitely getting better. Tyra says that sometimes it’s the inner beauty that can make you go a long way.
Tyra says there are six girls, but she only has five photos. She tells the girls that this week, collectively, they did really bad. In fact, she tells them they were a mess, but one girl did better than the others and that would be Chantal. Chantal gets her photo and Tyra tells her she did well, but the California looking girl has to be commercial in photos.
Saleisha is called next and Tyra tells her that, from week to week, her spirit is impressing the judges, but she really has to slow down. The next girl called is Bianca, who is told that she needs to work on her fears – her commercial was a wreck, but her photo was great. Jenah is called next and Tyra tells her that the judges want to see the light in her eyes and bounce in her step that they see right now. Heather and Lisa step forward.
Tyra says that the girl whose name she doesn’t call will need to pack her bags and head home. Lisa is told she is beautiful and came into the competition with so much personality that shined on the inside and out. However, the judges now look at her and wonder if she can handle the critique or the reality of the real world. Heather is a girl who comes into panel each week and the judges are so interested in her. She’s so beautiful and has great photos, but she was challenged this week, as far as delivering lines. She couldn’t even mimic them when lines were fed to her. The final photo goes to… Heather!
Lisa gives Tyra a hug and thanks the judges. Tyra tells her that she needs to get some self esteem if she wants to make it in the business. Lisa hugs the other girls and on her way out tells them that they are all beautiful. She tells the camera that it was a leap for her to get this far and doesn’t think anyone would have expected it from her. She’s not leaving a loser and knows that bigger things are coming.
Next week, the girls go on go sees! Chantal comments that Saleisha is kissing ass and we find out that at the photo shoot, Jenah gets lost in the crowd. And so begins the fall of Jenah. First it was Lisa, now it’s Jenah that must fall from grace. Here’s how I’m ranking the girls for next week:
