Wow, I didn't even like Crystal until I saw that picture.

Okay, so Janice is a genius.

Wow. Crystal is from Southampton, MA. I lived there for three years. We are talking small farm town without a McD's or Walmart in sight. I will have to see if she was a neighbor.

I love the male models. The females, not so much. T(h)eresa, maybe a little. And I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by Crystal's pictures.

There was some girl in the second episode that Janice photographed named Naz, but she didn't pick 'cause she explained to the girl that she needed a bit more work and she agreed. I think Naz was of Indian descent, but she was a real cutie pie, with the little J-Lo vibe going on. Hope to see more from her.

Ian was hot as well. But hopefully he'll come back soon too.

In my opinion, most of the girls are mediocre-looking. Nyabul is atrocious-looking in person, but looks great in pictures. Lauren's looks are exaggerated, but she does take nice pictures. I think Crystal is beautiful and all the guys are pretty much debatable, but I think Janice did an OK job with them.

Bios on some of the models. Much like Janice's train of thought, it's all very haphazard.

Damn. Crystal looks great, but Chrisann looks harsh! No way is she only 24. It's like ANTM Lisa's slightly-less haggard sister.

I was born in Transalvania and decided to move to America to pursue a career in modeling. People always say I have an amazing body so I figure I might as well get paid for what I got. I love snowboarding, skiing, and women


From Sorin, who is still pic-less. Certainly running away with the arrogance award. And, FWIW, Oxygen people... it's Tran-SYL-vania.

Christopher Vanek is fug. And an idiot for crapping all over his dad in his video clip.

And lastly, I have a huge crush on TJ. Line starts behind me!

From what I can see so far, of the women, Crystal and Lareja look like winners. The men all look like typical male models: attractive but bland (Although TJ reminds me a great deal of Stephen from Top Chef. I think it's the nose.). I just can't get excited about any of them yet. Maybe when I see more of their personalities that'll change.

There was a girl in a green shirt standing in the lineup last episode, who got absolutely no screen time aside from being in the background a little bit. Is that girl Bre from ANTM's "cycle" 5? If so, then I am more dissappointed with Janice's picks than before.

For all the fuss Janice made about Sorin's manly physique, it doesn't seem to have done a lot of good as Oxygen has him listed as a woman.

If she's only going to do scouting only in LA, she's going to have slim pickings. ANTM , I think, went to every major city in the country. And they got a better crop for it.

TJ resembles Simon Rex. Not a bad thing. http://upload.wikime...x-C_2x3_240.jpg
My personal fave is Soren.

The preacher guy, if he would only strip, had the most model potential.

The women are lacking.

I can see Soren fairly limited to underwear ads and covers of Men's Health magazine. And, of course, gay porn. Or at least I hope.

I think Janice is blind!!! Or finding out that getting undiscovered models to go on a reality show isn't that easy. The males are the only ones who In my opinion have what it takes so far, I thought Crystal was gorgeous but then I saw this, ugh yuck. However I am pretty sure that finding good male models is a whole lot easier than finding good female ones, primarily because there are alot more men over 6 feet tall then women over 5' 10.

Tyra has to get girls that deliver the drama to so that makes it even harder. (and she isn't going after the homeless for it, although now that I mention it I wouldn't be surprised if there is a homeless girl on the next cycle)

Sorin = gay porn, not fashion at all. Those tattoos dont help either. He does however have a fantastic yummy ass, again perfect for gay porn. Oh didn't Janice mention he was packing to? I wouldn't be surprised if he is being contacted by falcon studios right now.

Why does Janice have a 5"7, 137 lb girl for a model? She used to call that too short and too fat. Jenascia and Eva were shorties, but no way were they that heavy on ANTM. (I did forget which one is the 5"7, 137 pounder.)
Nyabel is simply ugly.
Is Theresa Cutie a real name? And why would an attractive young woman be homeless in L.A.? She could at least get a cocktail waittress job in a day's time.
So far, her choices are worse than Tyra's.

Ok, I read the recap, which was hilarious and after reading the description I need to see a picture of this Sorin person!

I don't have any chance of getting Oxygen, or seeing the show, so... Can any of ya'll help out?

I think the criteria for female models is different than it is for the male ones. The male ones tend to have a generic look to them. For the females, yes there is a focus on height and weight, but more important are certain facial features.

I think Nyabel is a good choice because so many of her features are exaggerated which makes for more interesting photographs. I think Janice sees Vogue and other Avante Guard types of work for her and that is why she is sticking with that choice.

Many models are not very good looking in person. I think we don't realize that because they photograph well. But plenty of absolutely gorgeous people look bland and average in photos. Exagerated features tend to pop more in photographs.

Thank you Screamie! I kind of can't believe that this is a show that actually exists.

I can't see Sorin doing much successful modelling work. He's got a nice face and all, but is it model quality?

The body is killer though. So how long before he DOES do porn?

True, but the last few issues of Mens Health have fully clad dudes in suites on the cover. WTF? What is America coming to dammit !

I'm sure Janice has a little something she can slip him before she sends him off to that first inevitable gig.

Maxim has posted another one of the models, Natalie Winsell, as their Today's Girl:
http://www.maximonli...ed.aspx?id=2019

Her shots aren't as hot as Fargo's, but I really do like this one:
http://www.maximonli...d...=2019&ind=6

I think she's definitely less Maxim and more Vogue. Now I'm convinced of it.

Hee! Gotta love that JD is paying bills. IT's a good sign that there may someday be a French Vogue Cover (TM Janice). I must admit finding this onne better than Fargo, which, what kind of stupid name is that?

Ok, I have to post this. I was checking out the Oxygen website and went to the message boards and (I think) there was a post from Mr. Porker himself. If interested... read on:
Peter's Rant?

Anyway, too funny!

Edited to add they do not have a direct link to the page... but if you go to the message "Anyone who wants to model must read" you will find the rant.

Hehe, that was hilarious.

And I love how the replies to that rant are kind of the same 'I want to be a model!' crap the poster was ranting about.

Heee!

Also, someone spelt asshole 'asswhole'. I think my IQ is dropping just from reading these posts.

How nice, an insider. :) Welcome.

You might want to post future commentary in the specific episode threads, Chrisanne, rather than here in the models thread.
