Grrrrrr...... It took long enough for someone to FINALLY upload the third episode. Way to go you Kiwis for trying to hog the good stuff for yourself. I know you're just laughing over there about the crap (ANTM) we have to put up with.
These judges for NZNTM have to be some of the "nicest" judges I've ever seen on any NTM. They're so positive for the most part, and supportive. Even when they're critical, it's with good intentions on their part. Hey, Tyra? Maybe you could put down your rib sauce and get a clue. Watching you slip deeper and deeper into full blown, insanity is not my idea of fun.
I don't get Sarah. I know she's homesick for her daughter, but you have a great (at least better) opportunity to try to make something of yourself, and provide for your daughter at the same time. Isn't that why you signed up in the first place? She was obviously an early front-runner, but if you don't apply yourself (not participating in a photo shoot), there's no way you deserve to be there over anyone. No matter if they're least modelesque girl in the house (Olivia).
Ajoh? Talk about the lamest reason ever to pull out the race card. Are you freaking serious? Over a freaking 5 minute shower? Hoochie on the runway, and terrible in front of the camera this week. Not good. Ajoh has a great body, but I just can't get past her buttaface. Combined with her outburst this week, I hope she goes soon.
Teryl-Leigh is boring. But who cares? She has an insanely gorgeous face. I can't stop staring at it whenever she's on the screen. She's tall, confident, poses well, has a great body, and is extremely professional on and off set. I don't care if she's got the personality of a fish, she's bringing it. And that's all that counts in the end. I agree with Colin, she was one the few girls to nail the critique for the runway.
Christobelle IS a model. And a high fashion one at that. She just oozes it out of every pore. She's got everything, the total package. She was working it at her photo shoot, giving the photographer plenty to work with. And she also rocked the runway challenge as well. I love her!
I liked Laura a little less this week. Mostly because she seems to be on Teryl-Leigh's case about EVERYTHING. I still think she has plenty of potential, but keep the jealousy in check, okay? Her photo was good, but I don't think it deserved the tongue bath it got from Sara T. At this point, she's doing very well, but some of the other girls just stand out a little more.
Rebecca Rose is very unique looking. But again, the problem that arose this week with her photo (for me), was that her head seems terribly disproportionate to her body. It's like they don't match at all. This may not necessarily be a knock for her in the fashion world, but it's a little disconcerting. I disagree with that judge who said that her face takes make-up really well. Her appeal is her ghostly, almost ethereal appearance. I don't think certain make-up looks will go well with her, which may limit her versatility.
Olivia. Olivia. Olivia. Sweet girl and all; and I know she's trying to do her best. But, she's just not a model. Nothing stands out about her, and everything this week (runway, photo) was just, meh! I don't see how she'll last past next week.
Lucy is the more modelesque sister. I don't quite see commercial (ala Angela), but as with Laura, other girls just stand out more. I give her kudos for having the drive, and giving her best effort though. You can see she's trying to improve. Who knows? Maybe she'll come into her own if she lasts long enough.
Hosanna is not the house bitch after all. It's amazing what some editing and misperceptions can lead to. I agree with the judges that she improved a whole lot this week, because she wasn't trying so hard this time. LESS, in her case, is more. She didn't force it this week like she did last week. I kind of like her now, cause she seems like a total dork in person.
I really like Victoria as well. She's another girl who I consider to have the total package. Not quite as high fashion as Christobelle, but possibly more versatile overall. She looked very graceful in her photo this episode.
With Ruby, I don't get the attitude that Sara T. is alluding to. I'd be freaked if I only had 2 minutes to get a shot as well. Her photo was meh this episode, and I still don't think her body is quite up to snuff for high fashion. She does have a beautiful face though, it might keep her alive in the competition a bit longer.
What can I say about Rhiannon? I love her! Girl's got the best body in the house. Hands down! Those legs are freaking insane. Her look is totally fresh and natural. Not everyone has to be edgy and weird. I thought her photo was quite good. In the context of the photo, I think it was perfectly fine to smile. Gorgeous!
The only problem I have with NZNTM? It's so damn hard to find a way to watch it!
Can't wait for the makeovers next episode! It looked like Lucy was getting her hair shaved off, or something. Eek!
