Well, I knew her a few years back when I was fresh outta high school. She modeled with my girl here in Detroit and the surrounding areas. I even have a picture of all of us at some club tucked away somewhere. I don't have any spoilers, but I wanted to add that home girl is very CUTE in person. I still got the most numbers when we went out, but I have a ghetto booty and that may have helped a bit. Anyway, she is very adorable in person, very sweet, but can be somewhat aloof from time to time. Then again, who isn't? I'm pulling for her, even if in my heart of hearts I see her ending up like Kesse (or how ever the hell you spell it) from Cycle 1.

What I really want to know, is if it's pre-makeover, what will Tyra do with it?
Either way, I pin her as the judges' darling and possible winner.

5'9" and 130 lbs. though? I think they're padding the weight. I'm 5'9" and once upon a time I weighed 130 lbs., and I was nowhere near as skinny as Naima appears to be in her UPN photo. Come to think of it, I wasn't that skinny even when I was 117 lbs.

I think Ann from last "cycle" disproved this theory. She had everything they wanted, beauty, height, athleticism/thinness and a great walk, but she would completely devolve into a neanderthal in front of the camera. She stayed in as long as she did based solely on her looks, but she was operatically bad at posing and never quite got it.
She can be taught how to pose so I'm not too worried about that.
As for Naima, I'm just not seeing all her "beauty." She looks a little too creepily fetal to me. Not ugly just kinda like a half-baked human. (Isabelle Adjani always creeped me out with her fetal features for a point of reference.) She's like a prettier version of Lluvy.

She is only a prettier version of Lluvy in the sense that she's, um, a girl and happens to be prettier. The similarities end there.
I hope she doesn't go the way of Ann. Oh, that will be painful.

So she's 5'9 and weighs 130lbs? Right. Where is all of that weight going? Do her feet weigh 20lbs each or something?
