Cycle 19 of “America’s Next Top Model” is shaping up to be an interesting one. Already in week two, we have a girl withdrawing from the competition. That’s right, someone stomped their way out of Tyra’s clutches. Obviously, we won’t know the real reason why she left until the show airs in the Fall, but I’m guessing it’s either one of two things. Girlfriend didn’t like her makeover à la Cassandra Jean (Cycle 5) (yups it’s shake-overs and ty-overs time) or didn’t want to pose nude. If I had to place a bet, I would double down on the latter. Scroll to the end of this post to find out who quit.
But enough about the quitter, let’s focus on the remaining twelve girls left competing in the show’s first ever college edition. As mentioned earlier, the college coeds are asked to pose topless for this week’s photo shoot. In addition, they’re asked to heat things up with new judge and top male model Rob Evans. Lucky bitches. Some of the girls really nail it. I have to say, it’s one of the better shoots in recent memory. The concept is simple but sometimes less is more. Check out the stunning black and white photos below.
Allyssa’s giving a bit of Megan Fox, don’t you think?
Not a fan of Brittany’s new hair color. She looked way better as a brunette. Check out last week’s photo.
Not feeling this. She looks like the love child of Bianca Golden (All-Stars) and Candace (Cycle 18).
Pose is a little pedestrian, but the face is gorge.
All I see is nostrils. Don’t you agree?
Beautiful composition. Love, love, love the picture. As Andre Leon Talley would say, I’d put this in my salon.
Once again, Kristin kills it. Her whole body and face looks relaxed but with tension.
Wasn’t loving Laura last week, but her new blond makeover really brings out her eyes and features.
Never noticed her gap in her teeth before. It sorta works for her. She’s giving me a Kate Moss-type vibe circa CK One days.
Looking drag-a-licious, but in a good way.
Dang. Victoria is giving aristocratic fierceness.
Someone’s stealing Seymone’s fiercely real back bend pose. That said, I kinda like it.
For all you Maria fans, I’m sorry to report that she’s dunzo. According to the picture above, she withdrew. Any guesses on why she quit? I’m going to stick to my theory that she didn’t want to pose nude. Sound off below.
