1-1: "The Girl Wants It So Bad" 2003.05.20

The thing I like about this season (and I might be wrong, but I don't think this needs a spoiler tag) is that many of the women are far more adaptable and deep than any of the whiny 2nd seasoners. Adrienne comes off as a bitter stoner, but reveals herself to be determined and clever. Elyse is a horrific snob at the get go, but lightens it up some and is always pretty astute. On and on...this was a great cast and a great season.

I was suprised by how unimpressed I was with Adrianne--I loved her so much by the end of the season, so looking at her and thinking she was completely average shocked me. She changes a lot. I was also really surprised because I didn't remember being so impressed by Shannon the first time; I mean, yes, she's commercial, and kind of annoying, but she's a very very pretty person. So many people are impressed with Nicole, and I just dont see it. I don't find Nicole attractive...I think she looks like a man. In fact, I think she's the least attractive girl in the house..

The first time around, I was completely incapable of telling Nichole and Shannon apart, and I couldn't get an impression of either until one was gone. It's nice to be able to watch it and know which is which.

Hangedman, ITA. Most of the people in season one were interesting without having to resort to a lot of I-have-Lupus or My-Mother-Hates-Me or My-Iranian-Father-Thinks-I'm-a-Slut story lines to make us care about them.

For the first half of the season, I barely noticed Kesse, but by the end, I remember thinking that she was a sweet, beautiful woman, from whom Robin could learn a thing or two about Christian behavior. And Shannon, whose over-toothed Farrah-Fawcett smile still makes me shudder, also grew on me. I couldn't help but end up loving Adrianne, despite the annoying lock jaw, and Elyse's crazy-bitchy rant made me laugh, roll my eyes, and love her all at the same time. And Ebony is fascinating to look at, very determined, and funny/irritating when she goes off on her own rants. Really, the second season people were dull, dull, dull compared to these women. (Except, of course, Camille, whose delusions were simply priceless.)

The horrible eyebrows, the ridiculous make-up.
The white lipstick makes Adrianne look like Tyrone Biggums ("I like to smoke crack") in the first interview. Hey, I'd be all wrongways up myself, I'm sure. I love rooting for a sure thing.
Maybe that first girl to get cut, whatsername, Kessa? was a plant. Like, she was an actress, hired to do poorly, and then be the first one cut.
Interesting that Robin was the least able to deal with the truth about her physical stats. Hey lady, Christians don't lie! I'm kidding but really, it is kind of telling.
I love Elyse just for describing the wax entourage as "lab-coated, bikini wax minions," going on to say, "I saw dead fear in people's eyes." What kills me about this scene, is like, you girls don't wax? Like, none of ya?

BWAH! Yes! And extra kudos to the editors for supporting these statements with brilliant shots of the "minions" filing into the room in a submissive line behind the maestro (maestra? maestress?) and the white-eyed reactions of the girls. Beautiful.

I don't think all of them freaked out, either. The ones who did were vocal, though. And to tell the truth, granted it was 49 years ago, but I didn't learn the intricacies of bikini waxing until late college b/c I'm very fair and rather not hairy. I was all, 'wha?' and still think Brazilian is shnasty.

It totally hurts and I thought most of the girls took it pretty well, especially considering it was being filmed with absolutely no privacy.
