ANTM Cycle 17 Run-Through:
I have been such a Top Model fan for endless years now. Always loving Ty-Ty and her wacko ideas for photoshoots & all of their crazy and fun locations… But this season, Top Model 2011 Cycle 17, Ty-Ty has wacked-OUT!! The show just finished it’s 16th cycle with Brittani Kline as it’s winner- and Tyra decided that the gimmicks were just not CRAZY ENOUGH… Here are some recaps of the girls shoots from ANTM cycle 17 “All Stars” [previous models from the show come back- whether for good reasons OR bad....]:
Oh yes… There was “Snooky”/ “Nene” impressions, music videos with the ALL TIME LOW “Pot Ledom- that’s ‘Top Model’ backwards” phrase, Greek Salads with olive oil, cliche shoots from their location in Greece (Goddess Olympians), and shoving hot dogs in their mouths….
I actually really like some of their shoots- like with the stilts in pairs!! But then there were also the runway shows… One on a Carousel, practically an obstacle course, and the final runway- which did not look like a runway at all. Just more gimmicks- swimming to their position [which Lisa totally screws up by the way...], flying as a Goddess, and then no REAL runway- more like a dance off WITH their songs they wrote earlier in the cycle PLAYING!! Oh my gosh… It sounds ridiculous in writing- it looked even more ridiculous on screen…
Speaking of the music videos…. “Pot Ledom” had the be the lowest point of the season… of the series really.
Dominique- “Tooch Ya Booty” [no I'm not kidding....]
Angelea Preston- “I Aint Goin No Where”
Alexandria Everett- “Go, Go, Go”
Lisa D’Amato- “I Be Like Woah”
Ty-Ty You Picked WHO As Your Top Three?!
You know… I haven’t ALWAYS agreed with Ty-Ty & team about who should be in the top 3 or win, but I could always understand WHY that specific girl won… Like Eva from cycle 3. I thought she was beautiful, but rude- and as always “Eva the Diva”. And “Diva” isn’t really a great thing in my book… But in the end I could see why she won even though I was routing for her contender….
ANTM Cycle 17 had a final three that SHOCKED ME… And probably the rest of America as well… Allison Harvard [who I personally ADORE!!], Angelea Preston [who WON but then was DISQUALIFIED for breaching contract....], and Lisa D’Amato [who is a recovering alcoholic that can be crazier than Ty-Ty herself, hmmmm].
Top Model: Allison Harvard
Allison takes KILLER pictures and has the “MODEL” look… Hello, ANT MODEL… Anyway, she has that- she’s sooo weird looking in the most beautiful way that is shocks you!! She was runner up in her cycle, and then in ANTM cycle 17 she was in 3rd when Angelea was “winner”, and then took 2nd once Angelea was disqualified… yeah, we’ll get to that LATER… Poor Allison… You should have won girl. Tyra’s heads in “Modelland” so try and forgive her…
Top Model: Angelea Preston [DISQUALIFIED]
Angelea is a beautiful girl- but certainly a frustrating one to watch…. She didn’t really take strong pictures, she had a horrible attitude some of the times [a loose cannon- not that Lisa wasn't...], and she always said “They judge me because of WHERE I’M FROM“. Oh-my-word… She said it probably at least once or twice each episode…. And all I kept thinking is, who sits there in a judging panel and says “I love this girl, I love her work, but she’s from the hood… So, PASS!”…. Ummm no one!! The only thing that was holding her back the whole time was herself.
AND THEN out of the blue, we find out that in final panel it’s only Lisa & Allison. The two girls are back in LA [not in Greece where they were suppose to be], and that this is the SECOND, FINAL JUDGING… What?! Yeah… Tyra explains that Angelea BROKE HER CONTRACT by posting on her Facebook that she was the winner- therefore breaching her contract and forfeiting the title that she thought she’d never get because OTHER people were going to judge her because of where she’s from… Jeez… Fianlly got where she wanted to be- without judgement might I ad, and she screws it up by doing a status update on her Facebook… Seriously, Angelea?!
Lisa D’Amato… Wins?! Shut Up….
Lisa dressing crazy and telling everyone to “CAALM DOOWN“
Lisa drunk talking to “Cousin It“
Is this really a cover girl? And HOW did none of the judges ever comment on what she wore to judging OR the fact that the girl is ORANGE…. AND she photographs older… There are just so many issues with cycle 17 of antm that I just don’t feel like I could watch ANY MORE of America’s Next Top Model. Sorry Ty-Ty… If you come out with another cycle- I just don’t think I could trust your judgment anymore.
P.S. Ty-Ty’s MODEL-LAND Ridiculousness
Yeah… Tyra has to be on acid or something…
