America's Next Top Model - Francesco Carrozzini recap/review

This season, the show keeps naming episodes after the famous people featured. Can we just mention that we are SO sick of typing these hard-to-spell names? At the start of the episode, we were rooting for anyone but Ann. We are over her. This needs to turn into an actual, catty competition, not “The Ann Show.”

The challenge had the girls picking out clothes for each other and appearing before someone who runs the Grammy Awards. The winner of the challenge, Kayla, will get to present at the actual show. We were touched when Kayla won and cried over it, but we were disappointed for Liz, who is at least interesting in a season full of dull, Ann-ish girls. Liz wanted it bad.

So when Liz got home, she consoled herself by getting wasted, alone. We feel the impulse Liz, but you never want to be the only one drunk anywhere. You look like an idiot. This blogger (and Liz) have learned this the hard way.

The photo shoot had the girls posing looking like famous designers and trying to portray their individual essences. They had to pose next to professional female models who were wearing the designers’ clothes. Liz rocked it, and she was hilarious. We loved when she was planning her faces with a mirror by playing with her eyebrows, citing her expressiveness with them as a potential strength for the shoot. This is further proof of our theory that a girl’s power is in her eyebrows. Remember Sara with no eyebrows from a few weeks ago? Probably not, because she went home fast. Look at all those inconsequential, weak trollops walking the mall and talking in high-pitched voices, in danger of running into walls because they are texting. Do they have over-plucked eyebrows? You betcha.

During Kendal’s photo shoot, we realized that she wasn’t smart enough to be a model. This came across to Jay that she wasn’t passionate. Tomato, tomahto. The photographer, Francesco, was great, because he had patience, energy, and he directed the models well.

Before judging, Tyra confessed that she thought Nigel was really hot when she first saw him. Us too Tyra, us too. Tyra was WAY less annoying than usual this episode. In fact, if we had only known her from this episode, we would like her and think she was cool. Liz got best photo (Yay! This is the photo in the post, by the way) and Kayla got second best. Ann looked ready to kill when Liz broke her winning streak. Is that a little evil behind those dull eyes, Ann? At least that would make her interesting. Esther and Kendal hit the bottom two. Kendal was eliminated, and we couldn’t have agreed more with the choice. Is it just us, or have the eliminations been spot-on this season?

We were pretty satisfied with this one. Both the challenge and the shoot were interesting, for once. Our favorite girl is still Kayla, but Liz is growing on us.

Episode grade: B+


  1. I was glad they kept Esther. She seems classy, and I'm impressed with her ability to conceal her giant boobs. I have to admit, though, that I'm on Team Ann. She's the latest in a recent ANTM string of awkward girls that I can't resist cheering for (remember the girl with Aspergers a few "cycles" ago? LOVED her). Also, I liked Liz at the beginning of the season, but I now think she's got a stank personality. She's gorgeous, though. I'm most confused by Jane. Why is she still there?

  2. We liked Aspergers girl too, mostly because an adult told Ern she had Aspergers when she was a child. It was gratifying to watch that girl and realize that Ern did not have Aspergers, she was just a little different :) Ann is just....ugh, we don't get it. She looks like Lurch.

    Jane is probably still there solely on looks and because she didn't suck in the photo shoot before last.
