ANTM9 - A Guilty Pleasure in plezWorld

They're ba-a-a-ck! Cycle 9 of America's Next Top Model kicked off a few weeks ago and my Wednesday nights are now complete. After my weekly football fix (all day Saturday with SEC & ACC teams, boo-hoo'ing with the Dirty Birds on Sunday, up half the night on Monday night, and then Thursday Night College Football), I can always count on Hump Day to bring out my appreciation of the fairer sex. The premise of the show is easy: ex-Super Model Tyra Banks and her cast of characters takes 13 young women from around America and transforms them into super models by the end of the show. Using weekly photo shoot competitions and a final runway show, the last contestant standing is crowned America's Next Top Model (ANTM); she gets a photo spread in Seventeen magazine, a modeling contract, and all the Maybelline cosmetics she can stuff in an overnight bag.

As is my custom, I've been following Cycle 9 with interest. This time around, I picked my top three a few weeks ago and I tune in on a weekly basis to make sure that they don't get sent home. It's been kind of rough, because all three have been in the bottom two and risked elimination. Without further ado, my top three are:
  • Saleisha - She's an excellent model and is almost too cute (even though, I'm not crazy about her hair style after the makeover)!
  • Lisa - Long, lean, and FINE!
  • Ambreal - Understated elegance, slamming body, and a brilliant mind!




  • And this is plezWorld's Guilty Pleasure!

    Awesome. Here is my take. Heather and Eboni take awesome pictures. My favorites are Lisa and Abreal. Lastly, I just want to know why did they give Shaleisha that Mushroom haircut. Not Cute!!!

    Fergie,

    i HATE that crazy-looking haircut that they gave Saleisha! but she is still my favorite... and i also adore Lisa & Ambreal.

    unfortunately, i think the personality of Eboni will have her leaving the show, soon... she takes some of the best pics, but she brings such a bad vibe (damn! how hard is to to SMILE?!?), i think the judges will soon grow tired of it and eliminate her.

    Heather takes great pictures, but her personality disorder puts her at a definite disadvantage... and i think the show is right on the edge of taking advantage of her illness by making it such a big deal on the show. i tend to wonder if her illness was the reason why she was picked to be on the show.

    I vote for Lisa... she purdy.
    Well...she's sorta odd looking but her shoots are on the money.

    I haven't been watching but I did catch a re-run...or a re-shjowing or whatever it was...

    My wife likes the show, but I think that there are a ton of better looking girls walking around w/o make-up, weave in their hair, and diet pills in their purse.

    bloopty,
    it has got to be those lo-o-o-ong legs on lisa that has my vote!

    llr,
    put away your toy guns and watch it for a couple of weeks... you'll find a new activity to share with your wife! *smile* i didn't watch it at first, because i thought another reality/game show was overkill, but Tyra and her girls have won me over...

    I might give it a try, but I don’t think that I’ll like it. As long as it doesn’t interfere with any of my regularly scheduled programming, I might watch an episode.
