Kyla Coleman Wins America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Finale! (Reaction)

Kyla is victorious in blue!

To cap off this very disappointing season, 20-year-old Kyla Coleman edged out returning contestant Jeana Turner and fan favorite Khrystyana Kazakova to win the title of America’s Next Top Model.

Robbed big time.

Never did I expect that Khrystyana will take the third spot. I mean, Kyla’s body of work in the show is mediocre at best compared with Khrystyana who has FOUR First Call outs and FIVE Second Best Photos that she’s literally on top of everyone else.

I am not taking this away from Kyla but Khrystyana’s third place finish is just beyond deplorable!

Jeana settled for a runner-up finish.

I am totally over of this show…at least for this year… *rolls eyes*

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 12 Photoshoot – Beauty is a Comeback

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!

Not only is Jeana coming back to serve more tea for the other girls, we’re also blessed by Cycle 3 winner Eva Marcille (Gaaahh remember the epic face-off between Yaya and Eva, and Anne almost toppling her in the end?) and also one of the former longest judges of the show, Nigel Barker. They recreated one of the shoots in Cycle 3 that made Eva the one to beat in the competition during her time.

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 11 Photoshoot – Beauty is Personality

There are only five girls in the house vying for the title of America’s Next Top Model and at this point, it is pretty clear that season’s favorite Khrystyana is steering away from the rest of the girls. In all seriousness, at this point – I’ll be hella shock if Khrystyana won’t end up winning this. Sorry, boo, I do not read spoilers but seriously – this is Khrystyana’s title to lose.

For their challenge, the girls created personalized avatar for the new ANTM mobile game. Yup = I know what you’re thinking but let’s not go there. Khrystyana won the challenge tho so Yasss! Then they shot a music video with Maejor and Mama TyTy. I’d say I’m pretty happy with the elimination this episode. I mean, Jeana was possessed all throughout this session. Oops!

Anyway, this is all for nothing because Jeana came back in the next episode! BUT – she’s gon steal the place of one girl to be in the final 4!!!!

Jeana and Rio getting the real score from Mama.

Is this too much of a giveaway?

 

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 10 Photoshoot – Beauty is Real

Now that the Binibining Pilipinas 2018 season is finally over and the new queens have been crowned, I now have time to update myself with some ANTM stuff. I was able to catch last week’s episode but was too occupied to do a recap of some sort.

Anyway, just to give you a quick recap from the ninth episode – as you may already know, nobody got the boot since perceived frontrunner Brendi K decided to quit. Mind you, I’ve just read that she actually got arrested last January 28, 2018 on some sort of court violations. (didn’t get much of the details about her arrest tho 😦 )

Moving forward to the 10th episode – it was a predictable episode with Erin finally ending her stint because seriously, nobody expected her to last this long if we’re all being honest. I mean, I loved her but she was mediocre all througout the season.

This episode also created a subplot for Shanice to steal the whole thing from Khrystyana. And no, this isn’t a spoile. I just think that this is Khrystyana’s title to lose from the start.

The remaining six contestants did castings in Los Angeles for Chris Mena and Maggie Barry with Kyla and – surprise! – Rio winning the challenge thus getting the opportunity to walk their runway shows. Ugh. I just want Rio gone tbh. I am tired of her.

And what do you know? Nope. Rio actually got the best photo. I guess, congratulations…

Here are the cover try photos of the girls for Paper Magazine where the winner will have a fashion spread and of course, with Paper magazine chief creative officer Drew Elliott as one of the judges – they know how important this is.

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 9 Photoshoot – Beauty is Movement

This sort of recap of last week’s episode is kind of late but seriously, how many of you were disappointed with the turn of events? I would’ve thought that with the quality of her photos, she’s a shoo-in to walk the final runway but apparently, there really are a lot of things that we do not see in the show. [sarcasm]

Okay, so on with the show. Judge Ashley Graham and movement coach Jermaine Browne facilitated a motion shoot challege which was yet again won by Jeana. The girl is on a streak yeah?

For the shoot this episode, they were photographed with a huge paper parachute as their backdrop/props. This couture shoot is probably my favorite this season and again, the usual frontrunner (meaning Khrystyana) delivered the goods! Mama is here to win!

Khrystyana

Erin

I don’t like this shot of Erin. I find it all kinds of awkward if I’m being honest.

Rio

It’s a wonder why Rio is still in the house, don’t you think? No big conspiracy or some shit, but are they letting her stay just to annoy us? I mean, the girl takes mediocre photos and has a really bad attitude. Hmm…

Jeana

I kind of agree with the judges here when they sent Jeana at the bottom. This would’ve been a good shot if she did more shapes with her dress since the color is already very striking.

Kyla

I really liked this shot of Kyla. I mean, I loved her awkward pose and her face was okay with me. I would’ve put Erin in her place tbh.

Brendi K.

So she decided to leave the competition. Might as well not apply right? She could’ve given her slot to other girls. Oh well…

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 8 Photoshoot: Beauty is Social

Were you completely shocked when this season’s frontrunner end up at the bottom two this episode? I mean, I call BS when they call her inconsistent! If anything, she is the only consistent model in the house delivering spectacular shot each episode! 🙄

If you’ve been watching the show but have not seen this episode, you probably have a clue on who almost got the boot!

Model Jordan Dunn made an appearance this week facilitating the challenge of advertising her clothing brand. And surprise! Jeana won the challenge…

At the photoshoot, Mama TyTy took over again and shot the girls with plus-size male models while covered in gold body paint.

Brendi K: I thought she’s playing it safe for weeks now. I want her to step up next week. This is SAFE. The guy is more fierce and he’s not even showing his face!

Erin: Uhhmmm

Jeana: Her face looks ethereal right here. Girl is in it to win it!

Kyla: Gurl finally woke up!

Rio: girl, I cannot wait to see you get the boot next week. *fingers-crossed*

Shanice: Not a fan of this photo but I loved Shanice!

Khrystyana: I loved this shot. It’s not my favorite but it’s not the worst for me. And the calling her inconsistent is again utter crap. Ekkk

Sandra – she finally bored the hell out of the judges. ByeGurl!

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 7 – Beauty is Raw Photoshoot

This episode was quite intimate in more ways than one. In a challenge where they had to create an anti-bullying PSA, the girls revealed some of the horrible tragedy they’ve experienced in the past. Kyla, Christina and Sandra won said challenge and and their video will be used as part of a national digital campaign for National Crime Prevention Council.

Tyra took over the lens this week with the remaining nine girls only donning their under garments for the shoot.

Brendi K.

I’m not the biggest fan of Brendi K. but this for me was her best picture to date. I loved that she looks fresh sans make-up.

Christina

I couldn’t imagine why this frame was deemed her best shot. She looks so uncomfortable and look at that tension in her neck! (Now, we don’t have to wonder why…)

Erin

I liked Erin but this reminds me of Bellatrix Lestrange posting a #justwokeup Insta story. Uh, no. Just no.

Jeana

I loved her but this isn’t working for me, tbh.

Khrystyana

This should have been her third ‘solo’ first call out! Girl is killing it!

Kyla

Okay, I kind of get the “editorial” vibe of it but this is real boring for me.

Rio

Bish knows how to work it. This is another favorite of mine this week. Werrrk.

Sandra

I loved Sandra’s look but up to this point, she’s just playing it safe. I want some fire from her and not just a pretty face!

Shanice

Miss Thing right here is fierce but the “rawness” of the shot – meh.

Surprise! Surprise! For the first time in the history of the show, we’ve a seven-way-tie for the first call out leaving (predictably) Christina and Erin at the bottom.

And not surprisingly, Christina (finally) got the boot! Bye girl!

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 6 – Queens vs Princesses Photoshoot

So far, this has been the most talked about episode of the season for two reasons: One, because it features RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Queens – the lovely Valentina, the adorable Manila Luzon and the feisty Katya Zamolodchikova and second, because Liberty’s elimination was mired by accusations that she was booted off the show because of her political views.

Liberty

Err… I personally don’t think so. From the get-go, I thought she was one of the weakest models in the house so I figured that eventually, she would get the boot even earlier than this stage.

She’s lucky she lasted this long to be able to meet Drag Queens for the first time. *rolls eyes*

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 5 – Beauty Sandwich Photoshoot

Now, this episode I absolutely loved! And let’s just get straight to the point – Coura may have been one of the strongest models in the house and she’s lagging behind this past few weeks so I’d say it’s hard, but it’s fair (ugh, as much as Liberty still irks me)

In this episode, we get to see the remaining 11 models work with YouTuber Patrick Starr (who’s coming to Manila soon) in a beauty vlog which Sandra surprisingly won. Haha! Sorry, couldn’t resist!

The shoot was a beauty shoot where the models faces were stacked on top of one another and it’s actually one of the best shoot this season if I may say (already I’ve already said the same thing last episode. LOL)

Brendi, Khrystyana and Liberty

Brendi K. killed this shot for me. The other two were like mere accessories.

Christina, Erin and Shanice

I’m not liking this one bit if I’m being honest. Christina and Erin looks like they just woke up. Shanice on the other hand was giving me Cycle 12 winner Teyona Anderson vibes.

Jeana, Coura and Rio

Well, Rio deserved her spot. Although I do think the other two deserved to stay longer.

Kyla, Ashley and Sandra

Well, look at this! They look equally stunning here. Glad that Ashley didn’t steal the show from these two!

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 4 – American Horror Story

The official title of the episode is “Beauty is Drama” and the shoot was inspired by American Horror Story hence the title of this blog post.

The brief is about becoming scary yet fierce at the same time. I think so far, this is my favorite shoot to date but gaaah, I can only name two who made me think that they could be in a magazine editorial and that is Brendi K and Christina – the rest are just meh for me.

Brendi K.

She’s definitely getting stronger each week! She looks a bit short here but that face!

Christina

This is fierce to the Nth level!!! Mama Ty approves!

Coura

Erin

Yikes!

Jeana

Khrystyana

Kyla

This is actually scary!

Liberty

In all fairness to Liberty, she’s really working it.

We do not have Liz’s picture here because girl couldn’t handle it and quit the game!
