Last night’s third installment of America’s Next Top Model: the British Invasion was entitled J. Alexander. Hopefully it was better than last week’s episode, which was only distinguished by UK model Louise’s hissy fit at Kelly Cutrone.
On last night’s episode just as the American women began to go into meltdown the British rallied together. Find out who wanted to leave and how their TV commercials turned out below.
Louise actually did leave last week. And right out of the trap we had American Eboni upset at being branded the happy little girl. Because that’s so terrible, right?
Thankfully the girls then get their task: they have to create their own commercial. The girls get a product and then they have to sell it and they are told of the importance of first impressions.
The winning person gets was to get three diamond bracelets from Ultra Diamonds.
I love how shocked the girls were to find out it was actual consumers who would be judging them. Who do they actually think they will ultimately be modelling for?
As it happens, the girls needed to be worried. The focus group members were harsh.
Martin tells the girls the people judging the challenge is actual consumers and they will judge who wins. The girls are shocked. The one person they really like is Annaliese. The other two they like are Kyle and Sophie. Ms. J asked the girls what they learned from this feedback and well, basically, it was not a lot. They mostly just yelled at Kyle for being liked when they didn’t like her.
Eventually, Kyle ran out in tears but Martin told the other girls straight: three models outshine the rest – Kyle, Sophie and Annaliese.
However, the winner of the task was UK’s Annaliese.
Next they headed to a photo shoot with the girls modelling extravagant couture UK hats in American cars tricked out. Only Symon e really seemed to struggle and needed a lot of direction.
But it was Kyle who packed her bags, unsure if she wanted to stay. Laura gave her some tough love, telling her she should value her place on America’s Next Top Model as so many other people wanted to get a place and didn’t. Hopefully Laura was cheered up by finding out at panel that she was the runner up.
Here’s what the judges had to say about each of the girls:
Sophie – Nigel like what she did – she looks high fashion. Kelly thinks it looks like a maternity ad.
Eboni – her eyes are not looking right. Tyra thinks she is trying to look sexy but she cannot do it. Nigel thinks Eboni thinks she is gorgeous and this is the problem.
Katherine – Kelly thinks she does not look sexy. Nigel thinks it is a good shot – Tyra likes the shot.
Alicia – Kelly thinks her body looks a little weight lifter. Tyra likes the picture.
Symone – Nigel thinks it was frustrating to shoot her. Tyra thinks the picture looks like she is at a parade. Ms J is not sure she is comfortable in her own skin. Tyra is disappointed.
Kyle – Kelly tells her she does not like what she looks like when she coms to panel. Kyle loves the shot of her. Tyra thinks the pictures is fantastic. Nigel thinks she can look incredible.
Ashley – Nigel thinks she has charisma.
Candace - Nigel is disappointed in the picture. Nigel does not think she has personality.
Laura – Nigel tells her it was a pleasure shooting her. Kelly tells her she looks like a drunk May West.
Annaliese - Ms. J tells her she needs to look taller in shots. Nigel likes her. Kelly loves the shot.
Azmarie – Kelly loves her shot. Tyra thinks it is amazing.
Azmarie got the best photo, closely followed by Laura. Symone and Candace ended up in the bottom three, with Candace being the one who was eliminated.
Was that the result you were expecting?
