America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 3 – The Makeovers!

In this episode, the remaining 14 models were each given a signature trademark that would hopefully set them apart from everyone. Again, there’s the usual drama which I honestly couldn’t stand because they all knew what the’ve signed up for.

Brendi K.

I absolutely loved this look! It made her non-boring!

Christina

Not very sure about the hair color but Christina is one of my favorites this cycle so I’m giving her a pass here.

Coura

Coura looks amazing but she’s a very weak model, IMO. Just putting it out there.

Erin

She’s always safe. She’s not showing me anything new. I think she needs to go soon.

Jeana

My favorite make-over, most definitely!

Khrystyana

Is she really better than Tocarra? Nah.

Kyla

Another favorite of mine! I adore her duck lips! She reminds me of the models of early 2000’s.

Liberty

I don’t get her. I mean, I still don’t get her. I don’t give a hoot about her FCO. I still think that she’s very pedestrian.

Liz

Guuurrr…

Rhiyan

Is this still a thing now?  Loved her look but not the hair, tbh.

Rio

Delish makeover! Wow!!!

Sandra

She really look like an actress or a beauty queen!

Shanice

I really thought Shanice should’ve left along with Ivana but I guess potential-wise, she still has a lot to give.

We all knew that Ivana won’t make it past the the top 10 based on the caliber of her competition. I mean, she looked absolutely smashing during the shoot but being pretty just won’t cut it. No shade. Just tea.

Ivana

Bye girl!

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 2 Photoshoot: Bohemia Pregnancy

The challenge this episode was a runway challenge at the Venice Beach skate park – remember, Cycle 15? Anyhoo, the girls modeled designs from Baja East with the winner getting a chance to walk the the designer’s show at the New York fashion week. Khrystyana won the challenge and deservingly so.

As for the shoot this week, they were to have a bohemian pregnancy shoot with featured photogs Charlotte Rutherford. I honestly didn’t like this shoot very much. It’s almost a beauty shoot in a way and I wished they’d do more of that in the future shoots.

Brendi K

Christina

Coura – I’m not exactly in agreement with Mama Ty when she picked this as the best shot this week. Oh, well.

Erin

Ivana

Jeana

Khrystyana

Kyla

Liberty – I honestly just want her to get the boot.

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 24 Episode 1 Avant-garde Photoshoot (Non-Elimination)

Mama TyTy was back hosting the show and the premiere episode of the 24th cycle of the show introduces us to diverse ladies vying for the Top Model title!

Nobody got the boot yet, so nothing interesting has happened yet aside from the contestant who’s deem to have an attitude but I mean – she telling it straight to mama, so there’s that.

I had the pleasure to walk in #theREALcatwalk a guerilla lingerie fashion show in response to the Victoria Secret fashion show’s lack of body diversity 👙 It was incredibly refreshing so be around such a large and diverse group of women, whom were all bringing each other up. Most of us were pretty scared to do this walk, all for many different and complex reasons. However, what was the most moving was of how apt everyone was to help one another overcoming their anxiety; and how badass we all became when we hit that runway. We were fearless. And continued to be for the next hour of taking photos in the freezing cold. It was the most inspiring thing to see. Everyone was a goddess.👏🏿👏🏾👏🏽👏🏼👏🏻THIS IS WHAT WOMEN DO WHEN THEY ACTUALLY GET TOGETHER AND SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER!!!!!!! 💥 👉The patriarchal structure has pitted women against one another, as competition, so they would not join forces. 👈 Because when women join forces we are invincible. ✨💫✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿💫✨ (photos @abbeydrucker @bitcreate @rjartistry @aceofnyc) ALSO SHOUTOUT TO @khrystyana FOR ORGANIZING THIS WHOLE DAMN THING IN LIKE 4 DAYS. THIS INCLUDES: coordinating meeting times, show times, locations etc with at least 20 models and numerous press people along with keeping us all in line and making this show happen!! PLUS HAVING SNACKS AFTER. 😋You are a force to be reckoned with, I am so honored to call you my friend 💗@khrystyana I love you and you’re punk as fuck!!!!! 🧝🏻‍♀️💕✊💥

The cycle 24 of America’s Next Top Model will premier on Tuesday, January 9th at 8/7c on VH1.

The Contestants of VH1’s America’s Next Top Model [Cycle 23]

Y’all know that America’s Next Top Model is coming back to the boobtube right? And it’s coming back to it’s original home – VH1. In less than a week – that is December 12, 2016 – 14 girls will be battling it out for the title of America’s Next Top Model. This time tho, Rita Ora will be spearheading the return of our favorite modeling show acting as host and one of the judges along with model Ashley Graham, Drew Elliot of Paper Magazine and celebrity stylist Law Roach. And don’t worry about Tyra not showing up at all – she’s actually serving as the show’s executive producer!

Let’s meet the contestants of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 23!

Obviously, the show is back to an all-girls cast (thank goodness!) and they are all relatively tall (hallelujah!) so I wonder how this would figure out over the next few weeks with the judges determining who should win! Are we going to see more outrageous ANTM-patented model stunts? Will the return of the show give us back the Cycle  1-3 modelseque epicness? We shall see next week…

[click picture to enlarge and read profile]

Who do you think has what it takes to win it all this early in the competition?

Rita Ora to host the return of America’s Next Top Model!

Rita12So I’ve been waiting for a more definite confirmation before I post this one but it looks like it’s almost a sure thing that popstar Rita Ora will be hosting the come-back of the original ‘Top Model’ series, America’s Next Top Model. Obviously, Tyra Banks won’t be the host but she’s still going to be playing a big part on the show’s comeback as its executive producer.

With Tyra okay-ing the former X-Factor UK host as her replacement, it sure sounds like a very interesting Top Model season is before us as it returns to its original channel, VH1.

Rita Ora 2

I’m still not sure about Rita hosting the show as I expected at least a really working supermodel to do the job (like Alessandra, Karolina or Coco) but I loved Rita during the X-Factor last year and she absolutely upstaged Cheryl when it comes to fashion as well. Hah! So for now, that works for me.

What do you think of Rita hosting the show?

Cycle 23 – The Return of America’s Next Top Model on VH1!

ANTM LOGOI’ve been a fan of this show since Adrianne Curry’s win and the show became one of my staple watch when it comes to reality TV shows! So, I was really fucking happy to hear that the show that we all thought has ended with Nyle Di Marco being its last winner is coming back on-air! Yaaaaaasssss!

The show is set to return with its 23rd Cycle but with a different host this time. No names has yet to be named but creator and host for the last 22 cycles Tyra Banks will be spearheading the show as its executive producer whilst the transfer from CW to VH1 is like a rebirth for the show since it was launched by the latter’s station when it started.

“After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn,” said the former supermodel. “I will continue as executive producer, but must turn my attention to new business endeavors, so I want to find a new host. I’m pumped to identify that person and bring back the show. Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back, and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!”

So who’s excited for the return of America’s Next Top Model and who do you think should be the new host?

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 22 Episode 4 – The Girl Who Has a Close Shave (Makeover Episode) [Recap]

‘Tis one of the most awaited episodes every cycle where the models will get their “Tyra” makeover. The thirteen models underwent IMO, not so extreme makeover this time save for a couple of girls who totally benefited from their haircuts.

Makeover Fadeout

My thoughts on the makeover of each contestant

Ashley – not really buying her look, she kinda reminded me of Saleisha (cycle 9)  – look wise.
Ava – I think this look could get her far in the competition! She’s totally rocking it!
Bello – wow. He looks different, a fresh version of himself if I may say.
Courtney – I really loved this girl and I think she’s got a very big potential but I don’t see much changes from her former look to her makeover.
Devin – he’s got a unique look so makeover or not, he’s really going to stand out.
Dustin – should’ve gone ultra-platinum blond IMO.
Hadassah – she looks really pretty with an even longer locks. not very high fashion but very pretty.
Justin – pure sex appeal.
Lacey – Ugh. This girl KILLED it. She’s got Saleisha’s hairstyle but hers looks better in motion.
Mame – no drastic change. Still gorg but…
Mikey – Obviously one of the strongest models in the house. He’s rocking his do!
Nyle – I really loved Nyle and this looks just made him sexier
Stefano – nah. He got fucked up by this mo

Meanwhile, check out this cycle’s opening – I totally loved it!

As for the photoshoot, they will be posing side by side with retired Marine corporal and now model Alex Minsky and former U.S. Army officer and paralympic swimmer Melissa Stockwell.

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 22 – Episode 3 The Guy Who Gets Shipped Out [RECAP]

tyra episode 3

I was trying to get my friend Livvy to do the recap for me this week since some gig came up and I was unable to watch the latest episode of Cycle 22 right away (but ala, bitch says NO CAN DO)  so of course, I did try to watch it before writing this despite the shitty net connection in the mountains. I cannot believe Delanie (sorry, no spoiler tag) actually went home over *********.

So from last week, the remaining models are to do this really embarrassing runway where they would find  out whether they actually made the cut. Really, mama TyTy? :/

On to the runway/elimination pre-final 14 – these (this) are (is) the model (s) that made the mark for me. -> Lacey – She’s clearly the frontrunner of this cycle. That jaw, that look, that personality. This cycle is hers to lose at this early stage of the competition.

You gotta love the angle between Devin and Bello.LOL OMG. Those two are TV golden!

Challenge winner by the way was Mame – still gorgeous but I thought Lacey killed it!

Photoshoot:  Each model were paired and bounded together for the shoot . Here are the photos and the pairings.

Ashley and Devin

Ashley and Devin

First Call Out: Devin = 36  (It was a great photo but honestly not the best for me – so don’t fret Devin fans – that just IMO *wink)
2. Justin = 35.5 (lovely shot but getting points way higher than Lacey was just ridiculous – doesn’t he look like Rain in there though?)
3. Lacey = 34.7 (I still think this girl should’ve taken the best photo)
4. Mikey = 34.5 (He’s good, like really good but he should learn to stfu because his attitude just totally suck donkeyballs)
5. Ava = 33.3 (she totally nailed it, not the best but she’s the one who carried the picture)
6. Mame = 33 (I hope she wont be stuck just being the very pretty mdoel)
7. Bello = 32.3 (I’ve to give it to Bello – he worked really well with Lacey)
8. Ashley = 32.2 (forgot about her as of this writing)
9. Courtney = 30.7 (it was a pretty photo but Mikey totally overshadowed her)
10. Hadassah = 30.1 (meh – girl, you are so pretty but that shot *smh*)
11. Nyle = 30 (just not spectacular – too blank IMO) 
12. Dustin = 29.5 (bae, what happened?)
Bottom Two: Stefano (it was awful so just stop with your cocky attitude already) and Delanie (wtf? Delanie??!)
Eliminated: Delanie

Again, I cannot believe Delanie went home first! Do you think the right model got the boot?

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 22 – Episode 2 The Girl Who Walks Away [RECAP]

The Models with the Property BrothersThis is just a quick one since it’s not that much of an episode but fun nevertheless.

So what’s talk-worthy about this episode you ask?

The models that made it last week were to meet the Property Brothers at the Top Model House which they decorated. The first challenge is a pose-off in pairs with the winner receiving all access to the Tyra suite and it was not even a surprise to me that Mamé won the challenge!

Mame and Mikey

Gawd, again Mame’s just WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY, TOO GORGEOUS!!!!

Then Hadassah calls for a house meeting getting all HBIC. I was rolling my eyes at this. Cmon’ baby girl – don’t be the bitch of this cycle please. Then there’s Lacey – I so want a catfight to ensue! LOL

The semi-nude shoot the following day was rather blah IMO. Not much of an event. One which I could totally understand since it’s not even the final fourteen yet. The shoot will determine the final models that will compete for the title.

BTW, massive lol @ Mr. Heverly – what a total horndog! LOLS. Mikey’s one of my favorites in the competition looks-wise and I’m actually loving his personality more and more!!! Cocky, confident and just plain doofus!

Then there’s Devin! Man’ this guy – too intense man’ – just way too intense!!! And Bello  – gaaahhh catfight galore!!! I dunno who I liked more as a model and as a person “on tv.”

Stefano – Mr. Meanie isn’t winning fans over with his attitude. So Stop. Just Now. Being MEAN.

Next episode we’ll see the announcement of the final 14 after the crazy runway challenge set up this espiode.

I honestly don’t know why they’re taking the whole elimination thing way too long since we already know who made the top 14…Hmmm.

Mikey Mame Stefano

Nyle Justin Dustin

Ashley Courtney Delanie

Lacey Ava Hadassah

p.s.

Oh, about this episode’s title? Semi-finalist Alexa had to leave which idc about at all.

Bello and Devin
