From the CW site:

The final three must use everything they have learned thus far in the competition for the penultimate shoot: a commercial and a national print ad for CoverGirl. Top Model 7 winner & CoverGirl model Caridee English stops by the set to share some words of wisdom. One model struggles to look youthful in her shot while another needs coaching from Jay to say her lines naturally. The judges send one model home.

The final two go head-to-head in a glamorous fashion show with the Sydney harbor as the backdrop. After an arduous deliberation, the judges decide who will be America's Next Top Model.

In addition to Caridee English, special guests include fashion designers Sarah-Jane Clark & Heidi Middleton of Sass & Bide, and photographer Jordan Doner.

La Buttchin triumphant! Kinda obvious after they dumped Renee. No way would Nata go through.

NOOOO!
I was so upset, even though I knew Jaslene was going to win.
And stupid WGN ruined it too.
They were all like, "Stay tuned at nine when we announce the winner of ANTM, and party with Jaslene's parents."

Woo...a drag queen won.

At least all the little up and coming Miss Jay's have a role model. Sorry, young girls...

Bah...I feel like I wasted too much time this season. Maybe it's time to give it up.

You're not the only one. I still think she'll have an amazing career though!

I was never on the Anti-Natasha train, but she looked extra no-necky and dumpy today. So eh, whatever.

Girls, hand over those dresses. SO CUTE.

Tyra, your hair looks hay-ell.

Hurray! I was hoping Jaslene would win. I was surprised that I was actually rooting for Renee to make it to the finals...I didn't think I cared after Jaslene made it through, but when they called Natasha's name, I was disappointed. She annoys the crap out of me.

Crap.

That is the only word I have for this.

I really wanted Natasha to win and at least it wasn't Renee but still.

I still love you, Russian Sunshine.

Heh, out of all three, I thought Jaslene would be least likely to win. Go figure.

I really wanted Natasha to win, but, oh well. At least this season was ten times better than last.

I was shocked becauase I thought she would suck, but I thought Natasha rocked on the runway even though you could tell the weight gain. But, I am happy for Jaslene. I just hope they reshoot her covergirl ad because I thought it was the definite weakest.

Yes! I haven't been this excited since Eva Diva won in cycle 3. Now Jaslene Cha Cha Diva won. I'm so glad she won I just don't have the words to express it better. Congratulations Jaslene! I knew you could do it. As for Natasha, go home and have real sex with your husband, just make sure nobody else is around. GO JASLENE!!!

Right?!?!?! I was so pissed when I saw that. I hope Tyra sues the city of Chicago.

Anyway, I'm happy that Jaslene won. I wouldn't have had the final 2 any other way. Congrats to both girls. And PS, how awesome was it that they got Sass & Bide on this show? If they axe Covergirl next, maybe I'll actually respect ANTM again.

I really like Natasha, but she looked like ass during the fashion show. When she was walking and her skirt fell off you could see rolls flopping around. Also, she doesn't have those striking, angular features of Jaslene (although I would KILL for Nata's lips). I'm not surprised by the win at all- I actually thought if Natasha got it it would be favoritism on Tyra's part.

So it's America's Next Top Tranny. Oh, joy. Somebody had to win. Hire some writers, Tyrant, so the winner can have something resembling a story arc next time.

Dumbest. Runway. Ever.

Renee bitched all the way out the door. What a bundle of negativity and suck.

Natasha sounds less interested in being a model than maybe any runner-up I can remember.

This is I think the first time since I started watching that if either of the Final 2 won, I would have been OK with it; and that I thought they both deserved to be there.

I was also still carrying around my Renee hate, b/c I laughed when she got eliminated.

Watching the Chicago feed and when they said they were planning to party with Jaslene's family, I knew that my Nata wasn't going to pull it off. However it was worth Renee's "blink...blink...look at Jaslene....wait, I'm not in the finals? blink...blink blink....OMG!"

Yeah Jaslene!! This is the first time in a long time I've actually cared who won. I really thought it was going to be Natasha since the editing seemed pro-Nata to me ... but of course they wanted to trick us. I think Jaslene is beautiful. Of course she'd probably work more if she hadn't won.

I call B.S. on the entire episode/season.

Tyra knew she wanted someone "diverse" to win since before the season started. Black girls and white girls had won - how can we be more diverse? (not being racist here, just thinking like small-minded Tyra)

My Life as a Cover Girl isn't scripted? Have you heard CariDee deliver some of those lines?

Is Natasha really that excited every time she sees Tyra?

Someone please stop me from watching next season. (I know I will anyway.)
