OK, first of all, why is Nigel so infatuated with Saleisha? She's the least striking (IMO) of all of them (including Bianca and even Chantal, who seems very "pretty" and commercial). It's probably because she kisses up to all of the judges, including Nigel, unlike rivals like Jenah, who takes immensely better photos and is the most "modelesque" of the remaining contestants, in terms of her look, attitude, and walk.
Also found it funny that during Chantal's critique, the judges were discussing the fierceness or intensity of her photo (in terms of pose and facial expression) and Nigel exclaimed, "Why don't you look at ME that way" or something of that nature. He seems very egotistical - does he think every girl should fall to his feet beneath his gaze?
Maybe I'm not good at reading the clues or catching on to foreshadowing, but I thought for sure that Chantal was going home. Although she seemed very sweet and nice, her personality seemed kind of bland and "blah".
Another reason was Tyra's pattern of putting the season's "bitch" into the final 3 (I'm thinking Renee, Bre, Keenyah, Jade, etc.) only to oust them first once they reach the finals (3rd place).
Ultimately, the right, and most deserving, person got eliminated, although in an ideal world, the final 3 should have been Heather, Lisa/Chantal, and Jenah, with Jenah winning. She's got the most real-world model potential, IMHO, in regards to her posing, look, walk, and posture (Heather doesn't match up in terms of being able to: deliver lines on camera, communicate well with others, having a proper walk, or maintain a good posture).
