I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I’m loving all the changes Tyra Banks has made to the 19th cycle of America’s Next Top Model. As if the viewer voting wasn’t already awesome enough, but last week’s twist at the makeovers was fantastic. Giving the option for the girls to deny a “shake-over” was definitely going to stir up drama. How much of a snooty bitch was that Maria Tucker? She may have Harvard book smarts, but girl definitely lacks social skills and street smarts. Definitely a fool to try to go head-to-head with Kelly and Tyra. Glad she withdrew from the competition.

For this week’s challenge, the girls participate in some acting exercise given by Tyler Perry. Based on the picture above, the model wannabes have to emulate whatever their banner says. All the action takes place over at Santa Monica’s world-famous Third Street Promenade. Taking the pictures at the photo shoot is Rickey Middelsworth. Given that zombies are all the rage these days, the ladies are instructed to channel their inner walking dead personas for Middelsworth. If you recognize all the rubble, you’ve probably taken Universal Studios’ backlot tram tour.

The CW only released the official pictures of the remaining girls left in the competition. If you want to check out Darian and Jessie’s pics for the new “Comeback” portion of show, read my post from a couple of months ago featuring their zombie pics.

Leila’s ready for her closeup.

If it’s a crying challenge, then it’s Victoria’s to lose.

Kiara giving the evil eye.

Freddy Krueger meet your future bride, Allyssa.

I wonder how many cans of hairspray was used to keep Natasia’s ‘do up that high.

Imagine being on the Universal Studios tram tour and seeing an ANTM photo shoot taking place. I think I’d freak out.

I’d be surprised if first call out wasn’t a race between Laura’s…

And Natasia’s zombie pics. Both ladies definitely brought it.

On the flip side, not bringing anything besides an open mouth was Destiny. Definite contender to be eliminated.
