2013 Australia’s Next Top Model Cycle 8 Finale – The Top Three!

Final 3 Duckie Melissa And ShanaliAnd we’re down to the final three who will battle it out on Tuesday to succeed Montana Cox in the hopes of becoming Australia’s Next Top Model. This season is all about diversity! If you’ve been following the show, we have three unique girls who made it all the way to the finale. Since I like these three girls, I decided to make a portfolio battle and stamped the name of the girl whom I think nailed each shoot! So let’s start…

50s housewife Alien Shot Androgyny Shot Colgate Shoot Cosmopolitan Shot Desert Angels Shoot JailBirds Lost Travelers Mermaid Shot Sports luxe Swimwear Shoot Vintage Lingerie in Hyde Park ShootSo apparently, Melissa has got my vote to win this season. I’m such a fan of this girl from the very start and I’m glad she’s part of the top 3. Close second would be Duckie who has been very consistent all through out. Lastly is Shanali whom I think is the chosen one by the judges. We’ll see this coming Tuesday how this all would wrap up – I’m just hoping for the best girl to win this season!

Duckie, Shanali, Melissa and Abbie

This was actually a very strong final four – it feels like the competition was whittled down to the best girls to battled it out until the end but this being a pre-finale episode, we still need to see one of them go and sadly it had to be…

Abbie Weir still werked it BIG time!

Abbie Alien Shot

This was from one of their challenge shoots this episode, the Mermaid photoshoot challenge. I thought Abby nailed this one but she just really fell short over all according to the judges. I really thought that she had this in the bag after getting first call out last week! It’s nice, though, that she went home with this amazing shot. She’ll be fine…

Beyond!

Beyond!

Duckie's Alien Shot

3rd Call out went to Duckie – I love Duckie from the very start but if I’m being honest, I would have Abbie than her at the finale.

2nd Call out went to Melissa – that face is one in a million! Let’s face it, this girl’s gonna have a big modeling career after this! Paging IMG!!!

and the Photo of the Season was awarded to…

Shanali Mermaid Shot

Photo Of The Season?

Photo Of The Season?

I’m not exactly in agreement with the judges calling Shanali’s photo the best in the series. I thought it was still Melissa’s 50’s housewife that was most memorable and just pure enigmatic. We have to give it to Shanali though for being the most consistent girl this year – is she destined successor of Queen Montana?

And then there were six. Here are the remaining six girls still in the running of becoming Australia’s Next Top Model.

Abbie Weir

Abbie Weir

It was just like yesterday when I don’t see Abbie as a model until she proved me wrong week after week – now she may be heading to win this season’s title! It’s gonna be a toss between her, Melissa and Shanali IMO.

Shanali

Shanali

To be honest, I do not like this photo of Shanali. It’s doing nothing for me. The photo lacks the story and charisma! Cmon’ girl, it’s the homestretch!

Melissa

Melissa

Melissa is perfection here! I really thought that she would be getting her third FCO of the season, but alas – a frontrunner but slug it out until the end! werk it girl!

Duckie

Duckie

Duckie’s probably the most consistent girl in the competition. This girl can do no wrong and that is what’s wrong with her. She’s too calculated that it has become too boring. I’m guessing a final 3 at max for her. ‘still love you boo!

Dajana

Dajana

Sabotage alert. From her fab photo last week to this. It’s no wonder she went home.

Jade

Jade

I’m not a fan of Jade since the beginning so I don’t mind her leaving with Dajana.

Now we only have four remaining girls to battle it out next week! At this stage of the competition, who do you think should really win based solely in their body of work and modeling potential?

Shanali finally landing the TOP SPOT!

Is this the start of Shanali domination? Like what I’ve said about her last week’s amazing photo, she could very well be the winner of this season. Abbie and Melissa – you gotta bring it girls!

Abbie

Abbie

Trailing not so far behind is this girl whom I think is Shanali’s biggest competition in all aspect. This girl is a PROPER model!

Dajana

Dajana

Dajana’s still not giving me that WOW moment. girl’ step it up!

Duckie

Duckie

Now, what a disappointment. This is not a good shot at all from Duckie. What went wrong boo?

Melissa

Melissa

A lagging frontrunner. Melissa needs to catch up big time pre-final 4!

Shannon

Shannon

This has to be Shannon’s best shot to date! #cameltoealert

Jade

Jade

Old Jade’s back. BORING.

Ashley

Ashley

A well-deserved elimination. Oops!

A smile worh to be called first from Duckie!

A smile worh to be called first from Duckie!

Duckie’s one of my favorite girls in the competion and I’m happy that she finally won photo of the week!

Jade

Jade

She’s the client choice and is now the face of Colgate Optic White Ad Campaign! Good job Jade! Do I like this photo? Nah.

Dajana

Dajana

Dajana’s looking great here and her smile doesn’t look force at all. I told you guys, she’s got something!

Shanali

Shanali

Shanali reminds me of the exotic beauty of Sam back in Cycle 4. Shanali may very well be the winner of this cycle if she continue to produce amazing shot like this!

Shannon

Shannon

This is just awkward. Shannon needs to go next. She has no variety.

Ashley

Ashley

Bottom two with Shannon next week please!

Abbie

Abbie

Abbie’s becoming a force in the competition. She’s slowly gunning her prowess to conquer this cycle! Slowly but surely…

Melissa

Melissa

This isn’t a good shot of Melissa at all and do you guys think they’re sabotaging her photos? Methink so.

Madeline

Madeline

I was never a fan of Madeline until this shot came out. Here, I see a beautiful commercial / high fashion model and I think it’s more decent than Shannon. Too little too late for her? Sadly, yes. So long Miss Madeline!

2013 Australia’s Next Top Model Cycle 8 Episode 6 Photoshoot – Desert Angels

This was the episode where Taylah got disqualified. It was a similarly shocking call-outs as the two frontrunners in the competition (Duckie and Melissa) were at the bottom and could’ve been eliminated! #OMG!

Jade and Madeline got the first call out!

Jade and Madeline got the first call out!

Well, I guess the makeover works in their favor! It’s not my favorite shot at all and I still find them a little boring but hey, judges knows best!

Ashley outshining Melissa?

Ashley outshining Melissa?

This isn’t a good photo at all and Ashley’s rocking this one so hard that yes – she outshone Melissa here!

Shanali and Taylah

Shanali and Taylah

This isn’t good at all. They could’ve kick Shanali out as well.

Dajana And Shannon

Dajana And Shannon

This was a pretty decent shot and I thought Dajana’s working it big time here!

My favorite shot from this episode! Abbie and Duckie!

My favorite shot from this episode! Abbie and Duckie!

I totally love this shot and I thought it’s one of the best this season! Abbie’s growing on me and Duckie is continuously dominating the competition. It was a joke that Duckie’s at the bottom. Cmon’

Photo Of The Week

2013 Australia’s Next Top Model Cycle 8 Makeover – Who’s Got The Best One?

Abbie

Abbie

From drab to fab! I love her makeover! She looks amazing! I love how she became a sophisticated diva from a regular model wannabe! I’m starting to like her!

April

April

This pixie do is just perfect for her! Too bad for her though, she didn’t get to stay and use it for future photoshoots.

Ashley

Ashley

I’m not liking this at all. It doesn’t suit her at all. They should’ve given her a bubblegum-pop makeover or an ice-blonde do!

Brooke

Brooke

Brooke, Oh my Brooke! Why were you sent home this early?? 😦 This former Miss World Australia contestant could’ve been this year’s Aussie’s Next Top Model. Alas, the judges hated her 😦 This was an egdy makeover for her and I hope that she’d keep this.

Dajana

Dajana

We all know that Dajana looks like a working model and this makeover sealed her position in the competition. Girl’s gonna stay for another week!

Duckie

Duckie

I find this makeover ultra-edgy for Duckie and I’m hoping that it would recede into a lighter pink eventually. Regardless, Duckie looks phenomenal!

Jade

Jade

I didn’t expect this from Jade! She finally look like a model! Hooray!

Madeline

Madeline

Melissa

Melissa

The judges favorites (ehem, Alex Perry’s fave) and one of my favorites this season doesn’t need a makeover at all. This high fashion goddess maybe short but she’s killing it! Go Melissa!

Shanali

Shanali

Girl’s looking sweet and all but not fierce…hhmm. You gotta step it up this week girl!

Shannon

Shannon

Was there a makeover at all?

Taylah

Taylah

Taylah look every inch of a supermodel here. I don’t know but I’ve this feeling that we’ll see this girl until the end of the competition.

2013 Australia’s Next Top Model Cycle 8 Episode 5 Photoshoot – Vintage Lingerie in Hyde Park

Melissa dominating the competition!

Melissa is dominating the competition!

A second consecutive first call out is no easy feat especially if you’re the shortest model in the house. Melissa with that face can do no wrong in front of the judges! She’s killing everyone in the competition with this very simple yet striking high fashion shot! You go girl, I am sooo rooting for you!

Jade

Jade

I’m still not a fan of this girl but she’s kinda growing on me. I still don’t like this photo, though.

Duckie

Duckie

Duckie’s strongest competition of Melissa at this point of the competition. With her fierce makeover, Duckie could very well take the lead from Melissa next week!

Shanali

Shanali

I like Shanali and I love that she’s stepped it up this week. She’s improving week after week!

Abbie

Abbie

I don’t see anything special about Abbie yet. She’s like Simone from last cycle. *cringe*

Shannon

Shannon

I’ve a feeling about this girl. I think she’s a top 3 material and could even win the competition. Let’s see if she’d be able to surprise us next week.

Madeline

Madeline

Madeline just looks awfully old. I don’t get her.

Dajana

Dajana

Dajana’s playing it safe and it’s working for her. I think she’s gonna wow us the next time. I’m glad she’s safe this week.

Ashley

Ashley

Alex Perry found her annoying and I think she’s really becoming one. She has the best personality in the house but her photos barely survived the cut this week and I think there’s a big chance that she’d be the next one to get the boot!

Taylah

Taylah

Taylah’s becoming oh so boring. I know what she’s trying to achieve in this shot but girl, you’re no MONTANA. NEXT!

April

April

I didn’t expect that April would leave the competition this early. I thought she’s one of the girls with the most potentials. Plus, she was given the best makeover. Too bad, she couldn’t handle a little pressure.

Bye bb Brooke!

Bye bb Brooke!

It’s really sad that Brooke has to go home right away. She’s one of my favorites from the start and I thought her makeover’s amazing. I hope to see more from you girl..seeyah!
