When the Silvretta E-Car Rallye calls, the SLS AMG Electric Drive roars. Mercedes-Benz and smart have put seven models to the streets to showcase emission-free driving. Among them the extravagantly yellow gullwing super sports car.
If the models thought they were let down by missing out on a trip abroad in favor of Vegas, just imagine the disappointment they must have felt when they pulled up to… the SLS Hotel & Casino? It’s so new, I guarantee you’ve never heard of it before.
Undoubtedly, ANTM chose this place over one of the Strip’s more notable locations as part of some kind of bargain. Like that the cast and crew gets free accommodations in exchange for free, repeated promotion for the SLS on the show. The joke is on the SLS, though! Who’s watching Top Model and thinking, “Let’s book a room at that hotel!”? Heck, I probably could have stopped that question at “Who’s watching Top Model?”
In all seriousness, the SLS is a beautiful hotel. Just trust Hadassah.
Plus it has fancy suites. According to wikipedia, some of the suites have been designed by Lenny Kravitz. They’re the perfect rooms for kicking back, listening to music, and letting your dick hang out.
Alas, unless Mr. Kravitz has an unhealthy obsession with Tyra Banks, it looks like the models’ penthouse suite was designed by Tyra herself (or maybe the Property Brothers.) Once again there’s Tyra pictures everywhere.
At this point in previous cycles, the model hotel has photos of the contestants hanging on the walls to prove that they’ve turned into real models, but not this time. With the countdown clock on, Tyra is no longer willing to pretend this show isn’t entirely about self-promotion.
Look closely and you can spot the crew member’s in the reflection of the mirror. (Hey, I’m a big fan of this show’s editors, but I’m not going to feel bad about pointing out their mistakes at this point since it’s not like they can get fired.)
While running around the hotel suite excitedly, the models find gifts “from Tyra.” Tyra didn’t pick out those gifts anymore than she sits down to compose Tyra Mail, but that doesn’t stop the models from exclaiming how well Tyra “knows” them. It’s all just name brand clothing and jewelry… it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that a bunch of vapid young adults will like material goods.
The surprises aren’t over: the models get invited to a VIP pool party. No need to put on swimsuits, though, because they’re just going to make them dive into the pool with those new outfits. Ah, that explains why the clothes are “gifts” - production probably can’t return the wardrobe once it gets wet.
For a VIP party, the guest list is pretty boring. Yu Tsai, Miss J… and Don Benjamin, who frankly wasn’t even a Very Important Person on the season he competed on. As Mamé says:
He’s just a good looking guy. (Emphasis mine.) Let’s not get carried away with this “rapper” business.
All of the models take on casino archetypes that you might find in the SLS Hotel & Casino. Mikey is a gambler. This seems appropriate considering no many times he strikes out with a girl, he’s always willing to give it another shot. Nyle is a bartender. Hadassah is a shopaholic.
Did Hadassah just confess to credit card fraud? No wonder she’s been able to visit so many beautiful hotels.
Note to SLS: double check Hadassah’s credit card information before letting her order Life-Size to her room via Pay-Per-View.
✨✨ my ridiculously involved haircare routine that keeps my bleached locks looking like actual hair ✨✨
about once a week or so i use the hair mask (h'suan wen hua… its basically every diy hair treatment in one, it put the curls back in my hair i have nothing but love for it) and then wash it out either just with water or with american cream. whenever my hair feels icky i wash with blousey (self preserving & sls free and straight up made from bananas, its the only shampoo that doesnt make my hair feel gross as hell) and then follow up with american cream. am cream is a double strength conditioner and actually not the strongest one we carry but it gets along with my hair best and it smells like strawberry milkshakes 🙊 ive said it before but my fave thing to do is just let it soak into my hair while i take a bath. it makes your hair soooo silky. r&b is something i put in my hair at least once a day while it’s dry. i just kinda smoosh it through, my hair drinks it up. r&b owns because it doesnt build up so like i use it more than once a day and my hair doesnt get greasy which is IDEAL!! also it smell good. shine so bright is something i finally picked up last week and i loooooove it. its a split end treatment with my favorite perfume (grapefruit + neroli + rosewood) that you melt down a bit on your fingers and run through your hair. it gives my hair really nice definition and also its my girlfriend
so there! my hilarious hair care. im someone who had dry and curly hair anyway and then bleached the hell out of it so making my hair feel like hair is a Challenge but luckily i have access to some really nice stuff :^) i’m 100% biased but i really think lush haircare is some of the best you can find, if only because all of the products make sure to contribute to the health of your scalp as well
