"America's Next Top Model" Rundown: "The Girl Who Went Rock Climbing"

"America's Next Top Model" Rundown: "The Girl Who Went Rock Climbing"

"ANTM" is getting pretty lazy with their episode titles, eh? This week, wait for it, the photoshoot was on a rock climbing wall! Yeah, they're also running out of ideas for photoshoots...and other competitions. Speaking of which, this episode was all about walking in difficult situations (isn't it always?) and started out with Miss Jay having the girls walk in straight jackets. Perhaps I'm overly sensitive, but the whole thing made me a bit uncomfortable.


As for the competition, the models had to walk in a faux-runway show for Colleen Quen's fancy and difficult-to-maneuver-in gowns, the prize being a chance to walk in Quen's Paris Fashion Week show. Roy Cambell acted as the most awkward runway announcer ev-er for the show. Kinda hilarious. Saleisha won, despite Bianca's many attempts to cut her down including calling her "borderline plus sized." Ugh. Bianca may bring the entertainment factor, but I'm quickly getting tired of her shenanigans.

For the photoshoot, as I mentioned before, the girls were to simulate rock climbing (do not worry, no actual climbing took place) in their couture gowns, stilettos...and harnesses. How cutting edge! How high fashion! How silly.

And about the pictures, Saleisha's shot was good, and daring, though I think she may be getting a bit too into herself. I also liked Victoria's shot, but I always find myself rooting for the smart girls. Tyra was a fan of Bianca's but the other judges didn't like it. For the first time ever, Ty Ty seemed like she was maybe going to make an elimination based on her co-panelists' feelings, but in the end Kimberley got the boot despite, as Tyra kept harping on, her perfect ears. Oh, Tyra.

So what did you all think? Did the right girl go? Is Bianca grating on your nerves, too, or is she just hilarious? Will she lose her power when she loses her pink hair next week...and are you as excited as I am for makeover week? Yes!
