How many of you are still reeling from last night’s “America’s Next Top Model” episode? Like Rich, I’m in shock Tyra had the balls to not only let Eboni go, but not save her after Alisha quit. Who is this new Tyra? I can definitely get on board with this new version for Cycle 19, especially if she keeps us on our toes.
Speaking of which, this has to be one of the more unpredictable cycles in recent memory. I really thought, AzMarie had it in the bag, until she pissed off Banks. Then I thought it was Eboni’s for the taking. It’s been a few cycles since we’ve crowned a black winner, and thought Cycle 18 was it. Is Annaliese now the frontrunner, especially with Nigel’s comparison to fan-favorite Mercedes from Cycle 2?
In the next episode, the Final 3 pose for British fashion photographer Jez Smith. At the photo shoot for the “America’s Next Top Model” fragrance, Dream Come True, the stakes are raised as the models pose in front of the client, Hatch Beauty founder Ben Bennett. As cheesy as the ANTM fragrance is, I have to say, the images are absolutely stunning. Laura, Annaliese and Sophie all bring it. I can’t even imagine who the judges will cut. If Kelly Cutrone has her way, Annaliese is a goner. Check out the pics and see who you’d cut.
How gorgeous does Sophie look here in this candid backstage shot?
Mr. Jay giving Laura tips on how to model when trapped in a bottle. From his own personal experience, of course ;)
Here’s what Annaliese looks like in an outtake. Wait til you see the final photoshopped product.
How effervescent does Annaliese look? So charming. Sadly though, I think it’s her time to go… unless Tyra decides on a non-elimination week. Check out Sophie and Laura’s final pic in our ANTM Cycle 18 Gallery.
