Is it just me, or is she sporting a camel toe in her pre-show?

I'm really not understanding how she can compete in this competition.


But she is my current favorite.

She's alright but the belly tattoo is killing me. She looks a little pudgy though but I like her doll-like face. I think she'll get overseas but won't win.

I actually think she's quite stunning in the promo photo. Her pre-show shot is really not great. She looks rather mannish and rather large.

I know they don't really look a like, but she reminds me a lot of Mila Kunis, who is also from Ukraine. Elina is one of my favs. right now, but I don't know what the deal is with her stomach tattoo.

As of right now, she is also my favorite. Her face is gorgeous. She is almost too sexy though. I don't think the belly tattoo is a big deal. Leslie had one and it was never an issue.

She's pretty, but I see actress and not model.

Elina's interesting, and she has gorgeous coloring. I love a pale girl with raven hair. That being said, I agree that she's actressy.

The whole token Eastern European is starting to get stale with me. Her face does look slighty doughy and I think she'll get pigeon holed like Katarzyna and Natasha. I rank her up there with McKey in potential.

Gotta say, she's hella pretty, though her face is a little pudgy. She looks the most modelesque out of everybody. Right now, she's the top on my list.

I think she's positively divine. The only shot where her face looks "big" or "pudgy" is that blurry screencap; otherwise, she kinda has a squed, but it works for her. She's my second favorite as of now.

edited because I forgot my heart already belongs to Analeigh when I professed Elina as my favorite.

My favorite this cycle, even though she does look a bit pudgy and short. There's that theory that with each cycle's winner, Tyra tries to rectify a mistake of the previous cycle. Maybe Elina will win, thus healing the wound that is Anya and Katawhateva.

She may have a pudgy face but it's nowhere near as full as Sheena's. I like her in the group shots but not so much that solo one.

She is the most beautiful girl this season, IMO.

I have a feeling she's going to get the Katarzyna "too sexy" edit. She's jutting her hip out in her individual shot, and pursing her lips. She's going to need to learn to work her angles, and become more hunched and mas-cuh-lin, in order to be more fashion-y.

I get more tomboy vibe from that solo shot than I do sexy. I see Lauren getting that edit. She's one of my early favorites though.

And I've picked my favorite. I think Elina's gorgeous, and it'll be a crying shame if she doesn't at least make it overseas. Unless of course, she takes completely beastly pictures from here on out, which would probably guarantee her going overseas actually...

But anywho, officially on the Elina love train.

"Humans should not have any contact with animals!" Pets are "slaves"!

Sure, PETAina, I'll just dump my domesticated kitty in the wilderness to free her from the human bondage. I'm sure she'll be just thrilled.

She may be pretty, but I'm not going to like this one.

I fucking knew it.

God damnit. I knew it. One of the ONLY girls who has potential, one of the ONLY girls I like, and she's a freakin PETA freak. Well, at least she isn't racist or anything, but still. I'm so not a fan of PETA.


Oh, and CG tests on animals, ho. How YOU doin'?

Slaves? If anyone in my pet-to-human relationship is a slave, it's me. I slave over my cats & dogs.Ugh. I predict a future-freakout with her involving someone eating meat. I am predicting it will be ShaRoun.

The biker chick thing explains the belly tattoo, or perhaps being a ex-body builder does.

I really like(d?!) her, so I hope she isn't the house bitch.

They haven't had a shoot with an animal in while now...

But yes, this is disappointing. She's my favorite by far, and one of the few I really truly liked, but spouting nonsense on this show is only fun when paired with an odd Jade-like delusion or drunkeness.

Shit, take her back to the meat-packing dishtrick. I found that shoot offensive, and I'm not involved with PETA.

Eh, I think a body-building motorcycle PETA chick could spice things up. Of course, that does make her a model with a cause, and Tyra loves those...
