Sorry. I can't get past the ears. Fug.

She's cute, don't get me wrong, but after looking at her picture a few more times I really don't think she's model material

It hinges on what they're looking for in the season. I think the proliferation of tall, light-haired, blue-eyed types means they're aiming for that. Either way, I'm trying to not get too attached since my favorites have a tendency to fall short (Mercedes, Nicole). Either way, here's for hoping she does well...
As for her ethnicity, anyone think she might be Maori? I'm just putting the whole 'Whale-Rider' thing in context when guessing.

It's true what someone mentioned upthread about having an "exotic" girl each cycle, yet none has made it far enough to really contend for the title.
Wasn't Yaya intended to be last cycle's "exotic" gal?

Boy some of her comments are daft though, she wanted to become a monk, and thought a mohawk would be "ideal to acheive that", go figure. And apparently she thinks that centering the hair on her head will center the substance inside her head. Yeah...you might want to try another method....cuz it ain't working.
But...umm...at least shes thoughtful.....
I predict she'll be the Yaya of this season. I hate the pretentious bullcrap she was spewing...but, hey, shes still my fave so far.

Please, please, no. I don't know if I can take another Yaya, and Naima is so cute and wonderful. Then again, I haven't seen the video preview. Yet. Oh, Christ.

Naima sorta reminds me of that mannish chick in Jay-Z's "Change Clothes" video. I guess it's the cockatiel hairstyle...

Is it just me or does anyone else get a "Digable Planets" girl vibe from her.
I'm digging Naima for now. I love the one shot they showed of her before she cut her hair off.

Knowing more about her than just her picture, she's definitely one of my favorites. And she looked gorgeous today.

And with Tyra saying "fierce" every eight seconds, Naima is the only one who comes close to actual fierceness. So I think she'll be around for awhile. I hope so, anyway.

Anyway, I liked all the stuff she said (except perhaps explaining who Coltrane is, because... duh... but anyway). I liked her reasons for having the mohawk. I don't know, it's easy to understand why she would want to cut off all her hair to feel like a new person. A new look can help you shed a feeling that you are stuck in a persona.
Anyway, NAIMA RULES yes forever.
