I really felt so strange for such a long time because I never understood the Naima love from the fans. So glad that over time we can be honest and admit her portfolio is genuinely terrible outside of a few strong moments. I am also happy we can admit she is such a fake individual to the point of low-key hilarity. :dead:

I think overseas is where Naima shines the most, and I guess I'll see if that still holds true.

Totally. I think that my love for the cycle has certainly faded over time, but I think there are so many big moments and lovable stars that keep me hanging on. I think it is sandwiched in between two much better cycles, which definitely makes it pale by comparison.

Agreed.

At least the iconicity great Lubriderm shoot is about to happen. Five incredible shots + Keenyah as the elephant. :wub:

I'm so excited for Keenyah's overseas breakthrough :dead:

Nice to finally have a lowstakes episode again. Between childhood friends dying, Tyra snapping, deadly bacterial diseases, I'll take an episode where the girls get chased by lions to be one of the easier viewing experiences of the season. The Keenyah is fat storyline has started, and while it's problematic as f*ck, God help me I love it (and it's unfortunately true to the fashion industry). The change of scenery was nice too so yeah...I liked the episode!

 

1. Keenyah - Keenyah getting gluttony and then the elephant two weeks in a row is still so fndjsklfnasjldkfnajlk. Keep eating gurl! Good for you!

2. Kahlen - I think I may have been trying to resist letting Kahlen into my heard a tad bit...but yeah she's won me over 🙈

3. Michelle - Her edit literally made no sense. One episode she's too confident and the next she has no confidence. It was always something new with Michelle and I'm gonna miss her.

4. Brittany - We're seeing hints of her becoming the endgame villain of the season and I'm excited.

5. Christina - Christina's lack of emotions is actually funny.

6. Naima - How has (spoiler alert) the eventual winner literally not had a single storyline this entire season??? Nothing!

 

Photo Ranking:

lKKNVNo.png

One of the best shoots in ANTM history? Idk if it's necessarily the best shoot, but certainly one of the best results of a shoot. Legit every single girl DELIVERED here and each produced one of the best shots in their portfolios. It was impossible to rank because I genuinely loved them all. And I did enjoy the concept as well, even with the crocodile randomly thrown in there.

 

1. Christina - Idk if this is an unpopular opinion, but I LOVE this shot. Christina's pose is flawless to me. Every single intricacy of her pose works for me, even the pinky up. She's also positioned the Lubriderm perfectly to sell it. Easily my favorite Christina shot and one of my favorite shots of the season.

2. Kahlen - Ugh I kept going back and forth between her and Brittany and I'm still not confident with it. But Kahlen really became her animal like no one else. Her mannerisms, her face, her pose. It's an amazing acting job while still remaining EXTREMELY modelesque and selling the product. Love it!

3. Brittany - Brittany's back! What an amazing picture from her. She's got soooooo much length here, I love Brittany's height! I think she had a lot of tough elements she had to deal with and she's really working it. Probably her most high fashion face too. Flawless.

4. Naima - Yeah this is where Naima's really starting to breakthrough (even though I ranked her 4th lol). I guess to nitpick she's a bit too scrunched up for my liking. But like Kahlen, she really embodied the spirit of the animal. And I love her positioning of the Lubriderm! Great shot!

5. Keenyah - This shot is so underrated. While it's ridiculous Keenyah had to be the elephant, she still looks sexy! She also looks really strong and confident as well, which is tough given that she has to be an elephant as well lol. I think the pose is a bit safe and I wish she played with her angles a bit more, but this is also the strongest Keenyah's face has been in weeks.

6. Michelle - Ugh, I love this shot too and I hate putting it last. It's really sexy and really one of Michelle's best (in a quite strong portfolio). I guess my complaint is I hate how she put the Lubriderm on her butt. I just don't think it's flattering when she's trying to sell it. Still love the shot, like all of them!

FINALLY. Remember when you were mad at me targeting Naima in the ANTM Rankdown?

Naima is one of my least fav winners ever and these posts are reminding me of it.

I've still got a million more seasons to go, but she's EASILY my least favorite of the first four seasons so far.

@Alex95 can I petition to have you do like a final photo ranking for each season during your wrap-up posts? :wub:

Do you think I have that kind of time :dead:. Maybe I'd do like top 10 photos (but I also gotta keep some cards close to my chest since I'm doing an ANTM photos rankdown :dead:)

Your mind will change on Joanie. :wub:

 

I didn't mean every photo - I just meant like your top 10. LOL. But there is the issue of the rankdown, though I don't think anybody will be particularly vindictive? IDK. :dead:

Better yet, no need to rank your photos so that you don't show all of your cards. But you could do a running season ranking! Really curious to see how these early, iconic seasons rank for you in comparison to one another.

I loved this episode! It's funny the episodes with the Big Moments, I'm finding boring outside of those moments (and simultaneously being entertained by The Moments and hating them). This episode was drama-filled because it was about the girls in the heat of the battle, not Tyra stealing the spotlight. Go-sees are always fun, and Keenyah ready to physically fight some bitches for them was amazing. And I always like when the girls have to critique each other at panel. It's the perfect way to stir the pot. It makes sense within the show as a modeling competition, and it's always gonna cause drama :wub:.

 

1. Keenyah - The #draggings she was doing at panel :wub: :wub:. Calling Naima dirty underwear? I died :dead:. Also winning go-sees after physically fighting two girls? A star!

2. Brittany - Brittany was effervescent at that industry dinner as she effortlessly stole the spotlight. And her horrific judging comments. "Idk it was good ^_^". Literally me judging these pictures sometimes lol.

3. Christina - I kinda love a girl they send home for being so boring :giggle:. Idk it's just so manipulative and funny because it's something I would do if I was a judge on a reality show. I felt bad for Christina because she was trying so hard to breakthrough and she just couldn't.

4. Naima - Naima saying f*ck this show and wandering into every go-see after they've already closed jknfjadlknfaskf. I love when a girl openly does not care about what the show tells them to do (and then wins anyway :giggle:)

5. Kahlen - Oop not me coming around on Kahlen and then putting her last 🙈. This episode reminded me why I do have issues with Kahlen sometimes, and it's when she acts so morally superior to the other girls. You're all on Tyra Banks dumbass reality show, none of you are better than each other! Don't worry I'm not turning anti-Kahlen, I just preferred everyone else this episode more.

 

Photo Ranking:

62bAv3a.png

This shoot needs some redemption because it had potential to be one of my all-time favorites. I love the creativity behind it. It was such a cool and unique photoshoot that gave the girls a lot of freedom. It's a shame most of the photos sucked because I wanted to love it so much.

 

1. Brittany - Easiest number one ever and probably one of my all-time favorite ANTM photos. This isn't just a picture, it's a work of art. I would've just sent everyone else home and given Brittany the win right there for this picture.

2. Keenyah - Frankly I don't like the rest of the pictures, but this is the best of the worst. Keenyah looks really powerful here and I like that. Covering up her leg with the leaves was an incredibly dumb stylistic decision by her though, not sure what she was going for.

3. Kahlen - I used to hate this photo, but now I've warmed up to lukewarm on it. The deer in the headlights face kiiiiiiinda works for me, but not completely. I just think the pose is very uncomfortable and all wrong.

4. Christina - This photo almost works in spite of whatever the hell Christina's doing. The backdrop is gorgeous and I like the little headpiece she made. The pose is absolutely horrific though and just looks so lazy. Possibly my least favorite photo from Christina since her first one.

5. Naima - What is dis honey??? FCO? Idts. I hate literally everything about this picture. Her face, her pose, her styling (or lack thereof). Everything.

Is it unpopular? Their shot is far better imo.
