Move over, Mona Lisa. We finally have a Top Model photo that will stand the test of time. Centuries from now, crowds will gather ‘round to marvel at Kyle’s unique facial expression. Is she smiling? Or is she saying “omgwhatamidoinghere” with her eyes?
This show should always have the models get just one shot. Not only would it save ANTM a bunch of time and money, then we’d get a bunch of LOLTRASH photos like this one for our amusement.
Ahahahaha! I can’t get enough.
I got ahead of myself. For this challenge, Ashley Graham explains that the models will be showing off sportswear. Sportswear is fashion now, Ashley explains, and the show “proves” that by showing Kanye West standing next to a woman wearing nothing but an open heavy coat.
What kind of sport is the woman on the left doing dressed for? Volleyball? Can she play volleyball dressed like that?
To add to the athleticism, the models will have to jump on the trampoline. Much like I would be with the “you only get one shot” gimmick, I would be totally fine with having the models always pose on trampolines since it leads to moment like this:
Don’t pretend you didn’t enjoy seeing Binta take a spill. Also, don’t pretend you didn’t enjoy Marissa talking some trash.
I’m not laughing at the almost insensitive, First-World-ish insult, but I will laugh at the fact that Marissa is so desperate to come across as obnoxious that she tried to go there anyway.
Krislian also has a funny fall.
Her picture, though, is pretty good. I mean, Ashley is obligated to criticize it because they want to send her home, but it’s pathetic to bitch that the girl who’ve you been begging to show you a high fashion side since the beginning went too “high end editorial” for this shoot.
I stand by the fact that it’s one of the best shots, even if just by default. I mean for fuck’s sake, the two girls that the judges declared “the frontrunners” both had terrible shots, but we don’t hear Ashley give them any feedback in an effort to gloss over them.
Cody looks super stiff and has one super hairy armpit.
I’m not sure what CoryAnne is looking down at… maybe all the people she’s too cute to have bother talking to.
And then there’s India. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a sleepier “action” shot.
Ultimately, the winner of a “special prize” from Ashley (cross your fingers that it’s a second helping of kale pesto pasta!) is… Paige.
It’s a great fierce pose, but per usual, the problem is Paige’s face. Notice how they don’t offer us a closeup. That’s intentional. If Kyle’s going to be called out for not having a good face to match her pose, you better call out Paige for the same!

You’d think that Rita would just want to hurry up and finishing taping so that she can get to that flamenco dance class she’s clearly dressed for, but no, Rita decides to hem and haw about the decision well after the period
I’m not quite sure what Rita was going for in this moment. Did she think she could pull rank as the host and get the other judges to change their votes? Even Tyra has claimed she was outvoted on the Toccara and Mikaela boots. (Though it seems fair to point out that judges Janice Dickinson, Nolé Marin, and André Leon Talley mysteriously exited the show within a year after these disagreements. DO NOT CROSS TYRA.)
Rita likes Giah’s personality - as I think we all do, I might add - and doesn’t want to give up on her yet. She would prefer to eliminate Krislian because keeping someone who coasts on her sex appeal rather than talent is a direct competition to Rita’s own brand “isn’t fair.”
The best part is that other judges barely even humor Rita. If Rita was hoping to create a memorable reality tv moment, the judges aren’t willing to give her any assistance. Instead, they calmly tell Rita, “No.” With a wave of her hand, Ashley reminds her that “majority rules” and Rita is put in her place. Literally put her in her place as she returns to her mark.
That, my friends, is why Ashley should be the host of this franchise. Not just because she’s the actual model, but because she’s the actual boss! And this is the Boss Cycle, as I’m sure you’ve heard the show mention 5,000 times.
Now seems like as good a time as any to answer a question a lot of you have been asking in my inbox: How do I feel about the judges?
For the most part, I like them actually. Drew’s great. Ashley’s great. Law… I could give or take Law, but he’s not irritating me completely yet, so, sure, he’s fine.
As for Rita, I think she’s doing a good job and definitely exceeding my expectations. Kudos to her for trying to make things interesting in what would otherwise be an uneventful elimination. I’m not sure if Rita second guesses herself a lot, but she did date Rob Kardashian, so I’m going to bet this sort of delayed panic is a common occurrence in her life.
Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to abruptly end this post by half-heartedly slapping Courtney’s eyebrows on Rita’s face and calling her “Frita Kahlo,” and then head off to Vegas for the weekend. I hear it’s just like traveling abroad!

Here’s to Candice Patton, Gina Rodriguez, and Kat Graham taking the reins of their respective shows and showing The CW execs that folks do and will always want people of color on their TV screens, and hey, people of color are reality.
Because genufa mentioned it and then I had a subsequent argument with someone who categorically refused to see it…Walter is a younger, male version of Abigail. If these two couldn’t play brother/sister, no one could.
