We're 3 episodes in this season. Anyone else watching?
I'm so happy Tyra is back. I'm enjoying this as much as I used to do.

Cycle 4 is my favourite and Kahlen Rondot my fave contestant ever.

Don't think I will watch this though. The show gets quite repetitive.

Cycle 10 is probably my favourite. I rewatch the entire show from cycle 1 to current at least every 2 years. Sometimes more. I'm also one of the few who loved last year's cycle!

Khrystyana is my favourite one, hope she wins. I liked Rio in the beginning but don't do so anymore.

Spoiler:
I was also surprised that Coura was out, she looked like a winner!

So far I'm mostly ok with who has left, even though I think Christina was gorgeous and I'd totally disregard her awful personality just because of that face :lol:

Liz was different and interesting, shame she turned out to be a psycho and left

Liberty was really pretty, I know she has that basic American cheerleader beauty, but still, wish she'd stayed a bit longer


Khrystyana is suuuper sweet and has a great personality, one of the rare ones who don't get into catfights for dumb reasons. However, I don't really see what the judges see in her, but OK. If she wins I'll be happy for her because she seems so nice.

My fave is definitely Sandra. That face :cry: she looks like a goddess

Sandra is stunning, a classic beauty. However, it's not what they are looking for this season which is all about models who are different from conventional beauty standards (regarding their size, their age etc.).

hmm I wouldn't say she's conventional, her arabic features give her face something special and unique about it, she looks like a statue

I have a feeling Jeana will win, her looks are unique, her story is inspirational, and she has been great in every episode so far.

I also think that Jeana will win, she's been consistently good and has a very unique look indeed.

I agree although I’d like Rio to win or Erin.

Rio is extremely unlikeable. Tho you can never fully believe the show, every episode seems so perfectly designed to depict one model as such and such, to have them in a dramatic bottom two or eliminate them in the end.

Very sad that my fave was kicked out

I don’t think she is she just has a dark sense of humour. The editing is bad though because each week it ‘comes’ for a girl.

Spoiler:
A few weeks ago I would have bet all my money on Jeana as the winner, and now she's out! :o
She and Rio were portrayed as unlikeable b*tches, let's see if Rio will be the next one to go.
I think that Khrystyana is going to win.

this show is so fake. wasn't Jeana portrayed as a beautiful inspirational saint from the start? and then in the last few episodes she was suddenly this bitch who didn't get on with anyone

it all feels so obviously staged, I bet most of them have totally different personalities irl and are contractually obliged to act a certain way for the show

I've seen some youtube videos of past contestants and winners about their ANTM experience, and they were actually all very positive about it. What I got out of the videos:

- It's not staged/scripted, but editing can make you look worse in a situation than it actually was. A lot of the time they intentionally leave things out. But the drama is all real. Though if you avoid the drama then they can't make you look bad.

- They're not allowed to have phones, music and books in the house. This is partially due to them not having rights to a lot of logos, texts, music etc. But mainly so that the girls (and guys for cycle 21 and 22) were forced to communicate/getting to know each other.

- Great friendships come from the show. Even between people who had some conflict. A lot of the time, the editing made it seem worse than it was and the " drama" was so short lived. We only see 40 minutes of approximately 3 days.

- They shoot for 7 weeks.

- Photoshoots could lasts for almost a whole day. Lots of waiting.

- The auditioning process is super extensive. After sending in your application, you have to go through a 2 month process of Skype calls, phone interviews, filling in massive piles of paperwork.
