    Vote for who you think will win. Or who you want to win. Whichever floats your boat. Oh, and in case someone's cousins, I mean, roommates, I mean, multiple personalities wants to spoil it, maybe it's best not to check here this evening until the show has aired in your area. :evil:

    I think Yohanna will win and I would be happy with that. I think I'd be happy if any of the girls won. Mercedes is a sweetie, but I don't think that her "young" look will make the cut. I think it will come down between Shandi and Yohanna.

    I'm rooting for Shandi. I think she's the only one who is great all around. Yoanna looks good in print but on a runway walk she leaves a lot tobe desired.
    3b/c and outta control

    I think Shandi is - ok there is no nice way to say akward looking and gawky.

    I think Yoanna has the best chance of ever actually working.

    Mercedes is, IMO, the best looking and she just seems cool but neither of these things makes a fashion model. And she seems kinda short. Well, not real life short but fashion short.

    I think Shandi will win, and never work again; Yoanna will come in second, and still manage to work if she chooses to keep trying; and Mercedes is the person I'd vote for in the "coolest faux-reality show contestant this season" category.

    I think Mercedes has a great attitude for the business. Even though the judges and photographers pointed out that her look was too commercial, she surprised them on several occasions with her flexibility. For example when they dressed up as famous celebrities and Mercedes naturally made little changes to her pose so the photographer effortlessly worked with her. Then when the judges pointed out how she was showing pain in her eyes, I thought that was true to the essence of Billie Holiday who suffered a lot in her career. But that's just cause I'm a Billie Holiday fan.

    Yoanna, I think she has a good look, but I don't think she's mentally tough enough for the industry. Taking criticisms about one's appearance is challenging, but she can't just start crying at a job if they diss her body shape. Did you notice how in last week's episode the camera zoomed in on the rolls hanging out her pants? I wouldn't want someone doing that to me. She should get some modeling work either way since she definitely has the drive and seems to know a lot about the industry as well.

    Shandi, she's not my favorite, but I know her body type is probably what they love. And the judges probably feel all warm and fuzzy knowing that she emerged from her cocoon into a butterfly. If she wins, I bet they will have into the plastic surgeon's office in a snap to pin back those ears.

    I still haven't decided who I'll vote for in the poll though.

    Me either. I don't judge these things well. Last year I swore it was going to be the one girl who didn't win. If Shandi does win though, I can't see her making it without lots of stress. She seems so freaked out just being away from home to do the show, what is she going to do when she has to travel and work all the time?

    I'll refrain from commenting until everyone around the US has seen the season finale. It's over here, but I'll be good about not spoiling for people that have to wait.
  • CGNYCCGNYC Posts: 4,937Registered Users
    Gerrrr...want posty!


    But will hold off till tomorrow in the interest of non-spoilerdomnation.
  • ImSpartacusImSpartacus Posts: 24Registered Users
    Great episode! I was happy to see the last 2 girls compete, they definitely had it going on in the last shoot! Did anyone else notice they wore the clothes from the fashion shoot? Do models typically keep the clothes they model?

    A comment about last week's episode. Were you surprised to see April go? I was. I think maybe her directing of the photo shoot was a bigger faux pas than she thought. Opinions?

    I too will wait til tomorrow to comment on the winner.

    Can we talk about it now?

    Can we talk about it now?

    I say yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    I'm surprised the way the top three played out, but I can see why the winner won. I think the other two non- winners will still do well on their own.
    Don't let your heart be broken. Let it love.
  • CGNYCCGNYC Posts: 4,937Registered Users
    I think April went because she looks DEAD INSIDE. She really does. That girl has nothing going on behind her eyes, even when she talks. It's scary.
  • NYCurlyGirlyNYCurlyGirly Posts: 1,012Registered Users
    Wow, I finally caught the last couple episodes of this ,but I missed the big finale. I'm suprised Shandi didn't win!! On a side note, I was half-watching the episode in Milan with the pool party..and this may sound dumb, but did Shandi actually have sex with one of the Italian guys they were hanging out with!!? I wasn't paying close enough attention to her phone call to her boyfriend.

    Anyway, I think Yoanna is so beautiful! so YAY for her!!

    yoanna was my girl all the way. i was so scared she was going to get cut after mercedes was 'saved' and it was between shandi and her. yoanna - i love her! absolutely beautiful and u know, she had to accept a lot about her self. but she knew how to work what she has, even tho (and i dont agree but the judges keep saying) that her body type just isnt the right body type. i am just glad that a woman who went thru so much, losing the weight, building her confidence and learning to accept criticism won. :)

    woohoo i have never been sooo excited about the results of a reality show b4. hahaha...it was great!

    I couldn't believe how snarky and catty Mercedes was being, the things she was saying. I have to believe there is a way to succeed in that business and not lower yourself to that kind of behavior.

    I think she's just amazing looking.

    I think the Mercedes bitchiness was playful and jokey and in no way serious. She seems to have a very quick sense of humor, good with the one-liners, I don't think it was meant seriously at all. Her "I looked GOOD at my prom" comment killed me.

    I read somewhere that Janice has a book out. I SO want that book!
  • CGNYCCGNYC Posts: 4,937Registered Users
    Also, I had a question - I keep hearing people bash Yoanna's body shape, but I didn't find that they ever really showed her. My theory is that the judges mentioned it and people who had other favorites just picked up on it. They did one time show some excess hanging over some pants, but it really looked like the pants were just too tight - that's a pant flaw, not a body flaw. Are there any pics of this allegedly hideous body Yoanna is supposed to have? They showed her more or less nude a LOT last night and she looked fine to me.
  • newlynaturalnewlynatural Posts: 84Registered Users
    Well Yoanna was thin but soft. too soft. IMO she just needed to do some pilates to tone up. There are no pictures of the "imperfection", which often baffled the judges. On the upn interview she said that the problem is gone now. so yay for her!

    Did anyone chuckle when Tyra was discussing what it meant to be a clutch player? I was thinking...yeah you don't call time out when you don't have any time-outs left.

    Oh, I heard that Janice rips Kimora up in the book.

    Yeah, they kept saying that but I just sort of expected them to ya know, give some kind of visual. Although, it's probably nice that they didn't as so many of these shows are already pretty high in the humiliation factor.

    That's what I read and being my nosey self, I totally wanted to read what she had to say! Kimora kills me. KILLS me. On the same day I saw her talking about her gold toilet (MTV Cribs) and like ten minutes later, her husband is going on and on about how money isn't important and things can't make you happy (John Stossel). Ok then.

    well yoanna was very good at elongating (sp?!) her body for her nude shots. she knew what poses gave her the best look and that talent. she may be soft, but...she knew how to work the camera so that it accentuated her best features, whether she was wearing a great outfit or nothing at all.

    i am really glad she won.

    I was looking at amazon for this book you guys are talking about and look what I found: /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fexec%2Fobidos%2FASIN%2F006055469X%2Fqid%3D1080148792%2Fsr%3D2-1%2Fref%3Dsr_2_1%2F102-7456838-9775323" class="Popup Too funny! You know, everytime I looked at Janice I wondered how in the world she could have been a supermodel because I don't think she's very pretty. I just looked at some old pics of her and wow, she looked different. What happened?

    What did you guys think of Yoanna cutting her hair?
  • AmmerieDriftsAmmerieDrifts Posts: 73Registered Users
    I'm really glad that Yoanna won too. And I agree with whoever said that Mercedes & Shandi will still get work. Shandi handled the loss with such grace -- she's a strong girl.

    Poor little Mercedes -- yes, I think she was definitely joking with the comments about Yoanna - she's not a mean girl, but she wanted what she wanted and she fought a good fight. She did a great job.

    When Yoanna brought up to the judges how her heel broke and she had to use Mercedes, Janice was like, "Oh wow! Not many people would've lent out their shoes - that was really nice of her!" - it was funny b/c Yoanna's expression changed like, 'Damn! Why did I bring that up? You're supposed to be giving me credit, not her!'

    Again, I'm really glad that they saw it in Yoanna to call her the winner b/c she'll be wonderful. That photo of her was strikingly beautiful!!

    I felt soooo bad -- she must've panicked!! It was hysterical though -- good thing she was wearing that helmet.
  • CGNYCCGNYC Posts: 4,937Registered Users
    What happened to Janice is a LOT of tragic unnecessary surgery - which is why her "don't ever touch your face" comment to Mercedes (and I agree!) was SO funny.

    I will have that book. Those books. Whatever. I love her. My goodness tho, she just doesn't even look like herself. What was she thinking?

    Oh - Yoanna and the scissors. Oh MAN. It wasn't that bad once they fixed it. I mean. Considering. At least it wasn't in the front.
  • Summer91Summer91 Posts: 265Registered Users
    I looked Janice up on imdb and she's 51. I had no idea. Maybe age has something to do with how different she looks. But it doesn't seem like age, she looks...hard and rough like she's always p'od and she'd f you up if you looked at her cross-eyed or something.
