This show is hilarious

America's Next Top Model - "Kathy Griffin"

This episode was such a train wreck. But it brought us many laughs and much entertainment. Proving even further that this show should never be taken seriously as a model-finding vehicle, the photo shoot was inspired by Nene Leakes and Snooki what’s-her-last-name-probably-something-Italian (other blogger's note: everyone knows she's not Italian. She's Chilean. Duh). We shake our heads and chuckle. Bianca even brings a pickle on set for her Snooki portrayal. If this show wants to become quality, rather than just entertaining, it should focus more on high fashion, trends, and what models actually do instead of these cartoonish shenanigans. It's a little unfair that some of these girls could have been punished for not watching Jersey Shore.

Lisa was the star of the episode. We always liked her a little bit, but this episode proved that she’s not just a hot mess. She made some astute observations about both Bianca and Shannon. She said that she admires Shannon’s faith, but that she sells herself short. True. Shannon puts herself in a pure, Christian box, not realizing that Christians come in all personalities. Christian is not a brand, Shannon. She’s fitting a cookie-cutter mold when Tyra saw some fun fire in her back in her season. Lisa also pointed out that Bianca is just scared all the time. That’s true as well.

Then Lisa rocked and won the challenge, and she was the loosest in her photo shoot (and that’s a good thing, not a slutty thing). Sometimes you look crazy when you let yourself go, but sometimes not taking yourself too seriously helps you take risks, have fun, and be memorable. We don’t suggest peeing in a diaper again, but, generally, Lisa is pretty smart. The challenge involved the girls making their own perfumes, naming, and promoting them. They also had to splash around in a bathtub in a way fitting their personality.

Of course Lisa excelled at this, because she’s basically a kid in the bathtub of life. She laughed loudly, yet innocently, and splashed onlookers. Bianca decided that because Beyonce and Kanye West don’t get in bathtubs, she wasn’t going to either. This secured herself a place in the bottom three. Rule #1 of Top Model: You need to hop on Tyra Banks’ crazy train. None of her ideas are below you. The only ego in the room should be Tyra’s. Nigel knows this. He got in a bathtub. It wasn’t as hot as we would have imagined though, because he kept his suit on.

We were disappointed with Bianca’s elimination. It’s true that Kayla lost her appeal this season, so we were ready to see her go, even though she was an early favorite. Kayla can sure take a good picture though. Bianca had a lot of drama left in her. We liked her observation that she liked Alexandria on her cycle, but getting to know her in person made Bianca understand why girls have a problem with Alexandria. It’s easy to love difficult people from afar. But you don’t want to live with them. Bianca remarked, “That girl can work a nerve.”

Allison named her fragrance “Honey Blood,” Alexandria named hers “Diamondatrix” (HAHAHAHAHA), and Shannon named hers “Smitten,” because she thought that name sounded trustworthy. Why does good have to be lame, Shannon? That is a good fragrance name though. It’s the reasoning behind it that’s lame. The special guests this week were Eva Pigford and Kathy Griffin. They were fine/boring. It shouldn’t have been Bianca. Whyyyyyy?

Episode grade: A
