ANTM 11 - A Guilty Pleasure in plezWorld

Cycle 11 of America's Next Top Model kicked off a few weeks ago with a bevy a nubile beauties from around the country (and one big surprise - one of the girls is a dude!).


The girl who doesn't really look like a girl, really isn't a girl... Isis is a pre-op transsexual dude! As if there isn't enough drama with 14 girls dukin' it out for a modeling contract for Tyra Banks... now add in a fake girl and watch the weave fly!

Hump Day is my chance to appreciate the fairer sex. The premise of the show is easy: ex-Super Model Tyra Banks and her cast of characters take 14 young women from around America and transforms them into super models by the end of the cycle. 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 Cover Girl cosmetics that she can stuff in an overnight bag.

In past cycles (8 & 9 to be exact), I successfully picked the eventual winner. Cycle 11 is going to be a challenge, because there was a big shake up in the plezWorld rankings after the hair makeover episode... my favorite contestant from Week 1 (Brittany) was eliminated! She was by far the most beautiful girl out of the bunch (maybe too beautiful), her good looks and her lack of ability to draw the most from them during the swimsuit photo shoot caused her demise after Week Three.

So now plezWorld is in a quandary as to who is in the Top Three.

Will it be the southern belle Clark with her new brunette truss? Will it be the exotic Sheena who figures to be a younger version of Kimora Lee Simmons? Will it be the quirky Euro-look of Marjorie? Or will plezWorld go with the surprisingly awesome shots of Joslyn (the lone Black girl who remains in the competition)? Well, the ballots are in... and I even bounced a few ideas off of plezWife, but she isn't much help as she is still reeling with the loss of Brittany!

Without further ado, I present the plezWorld Top Three Prediction for Cycle 11 of America's Next Top Model:
Elina - She's mysterious and a bit of an enigma... and she's killer gorgeous with that red hair after the makeover!

America's Next Top Model Cycle 11 - Elina

Joslyn - Not very impressive in person (even though, I love her Southern accent), but her pictures are stunning!

Marjorie - Think of a pretty Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" ... right down to the quaint European accent!

I think Elina might be a good pick, but I also think that Lauren might go pretty far, too.
