America's Next Top Model: Spoiler!
Ok, so don't say I didn't warn you! The results of this cycle were not quite as controversial as the last cycle's: the top two were well deserved. They both took great pictures and are generally pretty professional and model like.
However, I must admit as to being just a little bit surprised that Danielle-the girl with the gap- won. To begin with, I am not a big fan of her gap, even though its slightly closed now. Signature or not, it is just not very attractive. Most importantly though, I can't stand her accent. It is not very eloquent and hard to understand! Otherwise Danielle makes a pretty good ANTM. She twisted her ankle and got dehydrated, yet she still turned up and delivered great photos. I especially love this one of her on the elephant. It just seems to come so naturally to her! Her covergirl photo was also amazing (even though her commercial wasn't too great) and her final catwalk was awesome- it was confident and powerful. I hope she really does hire people to help her with her speech, then she'd be perfect.
Joanie, on the other hand, had more of the complete package. She takes gorgeous photos (especially this one on the elephant), she can speak, her teeth are straight and I feel that she has really come a long way in this competition. She really didn't have much of a presence at the beginning, appearing shy and unconfident in the judging room even though she did take consistently good photos. But towards the end, she really was starting to look like a model (although she ultimately did not have quite as big a presence as Danielle). In the end, I think she lost because of her runway walk. She looked like she was just casually strolling through the mall. Plus she was always looking DOWN- both on and off the runway. She definitely needs to work on her presence a bit more.
And then there was Jade. I don't even know where to begin. She is obnoxious and says the most absurd things to sound intellectual except they're all wrong. I really don't think elephants are in the dinosaur family. She says she's humble and all but then she just goes and acts differently. Plus her covergirl photoshoot was awful. She looked really creepy.
Overall this was an uneventful season. Sara's copying was not cool. I didn't know what she was doing there and I wish she'd stop yapping about being discovered in a mall. Gina was a shame to the asian race. Brooke should never have gotten as far as she did. Nnenna needs to dump her bf. And the rest didn't make that much of an impression on me to remember.
Oh and the dentist on the show is to be commended. I don't know how he managed to straighten Joanie's teeth and close Danielle's gap in just a few days, but the results were amazing! People should just apply to ANTM for the fabulous haircut and dentistry. ;)
