Cast Ranking:

This was actually a pretty action-packed episode. Even though half the cast was missing, I feel like we got a lot of content and it didn't feel rushed. The runway challenge was a bit rushed, but we're getting runway again next episode so that's fine. Losing Kathleen was devastating, but I'm glad we got to experience her :wub:.

 

1. Kathleen - QUEEN :wub:. She is just oh so simple, but also oh so delightful. Literally every syllable out of her mouth is gold. We will never have a first boot as amazing as Kathleen.

2. Jael - Bombing the photoshoot because she doesn't want to be pro-life :wub:. I think it's dumb that they're even making her do that. Tyra always talks about the girls being role models and then they have to model for vile political opinions? Mess.

3. Whitney - Whitney knowing lesbians because she played college basketball :wub:

4. Sarah - Maybe it's just editing idk, but I 100% believe Sarah spends all day in the house listing all her accomplishments as the other girls sit there listening 20% of the time ❤️

5. Jaslene - Comforting Kathleen :wub: Slaying the photoshoot :wub:

6. Natasha - She was just so happy to be here ❤️

7. Dionne - Not giving Dionne's confessional is a criminal offense.

8. Brittany - Lol I remember thinking she would be the modelesque but boring girl when I watched the first time.

9. Cassandra - Who?

10. Samantha - Who?

11. Diana - Who?

12. Felicia - Who?

13. Renee - Yeah she absolutely didn't work for me at all this episode. It's one think to be a villain, but she was just whining about everything and everyone this episode. Just so surly and miserable, and not in a fun or entertaining way.

 

Photo Ranking:

XrehhiJ.png

First, I HATE the photos with the dumbass effect around the girls in the pictures. Literally what is that??? There was no saving half these photos though. I don't think it's the worst photoshoot in the world, but it was cheesy and this theme of having the first photoshoots of the season making Statements needs to stop (but won't until, like, C12)

 

1. Brittany - I know not having Jaslene first is crazy to most, but this is the hill I'm dying on. I love this photo of Brittany. She just looks so glam and she absolutely understood the assignment.

2. Jaslene - I still love her photo too! It's just the definition of fierce.

3. Renee - She may have struggled at the shoot, but she worked it out with this picture!

4. Samantha - She actually looks really into Whitney here. I thought she was gonna be more homophobic lol, so I guess bad on me for judging a book by its cover.

5. Felicia - Safe, but absolutely a photo you can see in a bridal magazine (probably could've been better if they paid for a male model)

6. Cassandra - I actually used to hate this photo, but I'm starting to feel it. It's a bit crazy, but that works for the concept of the shoot.

7. Dionne - Is this the most average photo in ANTM history?

8. Sarah - She looks more like a jail warden than a prisoner serving life, but fine I guess.

9. Jael - I don't think it's bad, but I also think she could've done more. Props for not feeling passionate at all about the subject matter though!

10. Diana - At least she's giving us some action...?

11. Natasha - She looks absolutely gorgeous 🙂

12. Whitney - The suit is doing nothing for her, but she's also not working it at all. I don't see any love for Samantha coming from Whitney.

13. Kathleen - Lol her face :dead:. God bless her, she tried.

Pretty sure you didn't give a screen grab of one of my favorite moments from the episode - Natasha being like "I came here to model not be political lol"

fQor7d1.png

And she's right because she slayed lol

Cast Ranking:

Xu95AAy.png

I really enjoyed this episode again! Maybe it's just been such a breath of fresh air from C7. It's kinda nice to see the eventual top two of the season at the top of my rankings. They were bringing the drama and delivering the entertainment from the start :wub: (though unfortunately I believe this is Jaslene's peak if I'm remembering).

 

1. Jaslene - The Fall of Jaslene ending with her still getting FCO lol :wub:. Jaslene's delusions of grandeur really made this a great episode.

2. Natasha - I feel kinda bad laughing about Natasha's obvious language barrier, but her deciding she did amazing at runway practice because she though Miss J called her a martian is just hilarious, how can you not love it?! Natasha takes criticism better than anyone else.

3. Jael - Jael's 100% serious confessional about being touched over Sarah flashing her boobs to a bunch of high schoolers is the hardest I've laughed all week.

4. Sarah - The way Sarah tries way too hard at everything she does :wub:. I still can't believe she just finished the runway show without ever fixing her dress lmao

5. Dionne - Ugh Dionne stans were given CRUMBS the first half of C8...but she does deliver with her single confessional an episode.

6. Brittany - I forgot what a dominant force Brittany was early on. Winning the runway show, two great photos. She could've been a winner contender if she didn't lose her shit :giggle:

7. Felicia - I did not expect Felicia of all people to be getting in one of the first fights of the cycle with Jaslene.

8. Whitney - I still like her!

9. Cassandra - Who?

10. Diana - Who?

11. Renee - Yeah she's still annoying me. I'm totally okay with her complaining and hateful, if she had literally any other content. All she does is WHINE about the other girls and her own performance. It's really frustrating to watch and not good tv.

12. Samantha - You've seen one small town girl who gets homesick on ANTM and you've seen them all.

 

Photo Ranking:

4ruR9GM.png

It wasn't great, but I mean we've still got the four personalities photoshoot coming on so I guess we'll just consider this haute couture in comparison.

 

1. Jaslene - Yeah this is so fierce. Jaslene got into character so well and is kinda selling the hideous outfit. Such an amazing shot.

2. Brittany - I don't get the little red riding hood styling, but it's still an amazing shot. I loooove Brittany's face.

3. Felicia - Such a strong action shot, she's in complete control here. And no photo in ANTM history looks more like Tyra Banks than this one.

4. Jael - Obviously this lewk was right up Jael's alley and she nailed it.

5. Dionne - Could use more neck but it's a great shot.

6. Diana - I think Diana did one of the best at getting into character. I don't love it as a modeling shot, but it's still great.

7. Whitney - Great face, okay pose.

8. Renee - The lower half's good but I hate her face and demented arms. Definitely her weakest shot of the competition.

9. Cassandra - I just really don't get why she got cheerleader and chose to go bored? Why?!

10. Samantha - She looks absolutely terrified of her outfit.

11. Sarah - Bad acting and just not sexy at all.

12. Natasha - Horrible, but THANK GOD she survived.

Ahh I fell so behind! Cycle 7 isn't a big favorite of mine, but as someone who has just entered the final seasons/downfall of this show I needed a pleasant reminder of the better years. :haha:

 

Didn't have a lot of favorites on this cycle really but a lot of my love went to Melrose and I'm glad to see how much she rightfully dominated your cast rankings too. While she had the occasional less than great moment, harmless villain is exactly the right description for her IMO. Her confessional after losing was really upsetting and she deserved better. 💔 Other than that, an ok cast I guess? I'd probably have the same top 5. I enjoyed Anchal well enough, CariDee had some great moments, Eugena was ok but agreed that we didn't get to know a lot about her.. I wasn't huge on the twins but in comparison to the rest of the cast they definitely ended up some of my favorites. 

 

How iconic that Kathleen outshined most of that cast in just her one Cycle 8 episode however :wub: I'm actually gonna side with you on the Brittany > Jaslene pics too for the first episode (and I think Renee also holds her own in that top three very well). Jaslene's photo is iconic but I just love the old glamour-take on Brittany's, I feel like it could almost be a painting.

 

I enjoyed this cycle moreso though and excited to remember more of the episodes (and the iconic Dionne moments that are coming :wub:)! Overall some great photos, great characters, and some the total opposite :haha:

Oh yeah when I'm watching C17 I'll be vying for the days of C7 :dead:

 

Glad you love Melrose too! She definitely deserved better. I agree that Anchal, CariDee, and Eugena are amongst the better members of the supporting cast, but they're not really top favorites of mine.

 

Kathleen is such a star :wub:. Wow, I'm shocked and pleased there's more love for Brittany's photos than I expected. I like Renee's first photo and would put it up there with Brittany and Jaslene's but not her class clown photo.

 

Lol yeah I'm very curious how I'll end up feeling about this cycle.

"Why are you crying all the time? When I hear a girl boohooing she's crying because her boyfriend just got shot, or we're crying because our roommate just got shot or something like that, we're not gonna cry over every little thing..." UMM?! I do not remember this conversation at all, but this is the perfect predecessor to the war comment also to Brittany later in the season :dead:

CKxmuga.png

Same tho

Rvezra5.png

"I told her how it was and I said end of story and I slapped her up and gave her the deuces. Walked away" She's so proud of herself :dead:

Jael finds out a friend of hers overdosed :(

Cut Renee bitching about how Brittany isn't that good.

Renee and Diana bitch about how Brittany is fake and constantly acting and Brittany overhears.

Renee & Diana continue to talk shit and Brittany glares at them from across the backyard as she's still comforting Jael over her dead friend ❤️

OHfWvo9.png

At the photoshoot, Brittany cries about posing nude because her parents won't be happy.

agjsoFI.png

And then Brittany bitches about having to hold ice cream in the shot (totally valid complaint lol)

2VYlXMC.png

"YOU KNOW WHAT JAY I THINK I'M MORE COMFORTABLE NAKED!"

oPJxmtg.png

After all the complaining, Brittany kills the photoshoot to the anger of everyone :wub:

OWLk5TX.png

Sarah: She [Natasha] looks like Kate Moss

Renee: No she doesn't, do you know who Kate Moss is :rolleyes:

Sarah: :/

lUMMDx8.png

Jael struggles with whether or not she should reveal to panel what's going on back home.

2d2akz6.png

She starts crying at panel so she reveals what happened (and Tyra graciously allows her to be a human being and not a model for a second lol)

NHCedt0.png

"I love this picture anyways because it's so much better than other pictures I've had 🙂"

8lzFHum.png

Renee seethes as the judges rave over Brittany's photo.

gPbSqTM.png

The CONSTANT critiques on Jaslene's personality, even this early, are still kinda strange to me. They literally want her to just do the Cha-Cha in the middle of panel.

83mK2ux.png

Whitney is extremely emotional over this bottom two and elimination :dead:

Cast Ranking:

evDVGUs.png

I loved this episode! The Brittany drama is actually really fun, much better than the Melrose drama last season. I at least get why these girls might hate Brittany lol. Also emotional in parts thanks to Jael :(. The season has actually been fun to watch so far!

 

1. Brittany - By the photoshoot, she was slightly getting on my nerves a bit, but I could handle it because of how much she had the rest of the girls seething :wub:. And I appreciate Brittany's attitude, how little she gives us a shit, how she wasn't afraid to tell off Renee. I kinda expected Brittany to just breakdown over the confrontation but she stepped up to the plate against Renee which I love. And then she killed every challenge that came her way :wub:.

2. Jael - Such a rough episode for Jael :(. Between that awful makeover drama and losing her friend :broken:. Jael is such a strong woman here.

3. Whitney - What a random contestant?? I didn't remember a single thing about her pre-season, but this is the second time this cycle where something that's come out of her mouth has left my jaw on the ground :dead:

4. Natasha - Natasha turning every critique into a positive at panel never gets old :wub:.

5. Dionne - Dionne hit her one funny line per episode quota :wub:

6. Sarah - The thing about Sarah is like she's a fan on the message boards...but in the house. The way she casually comments on the girls and their performance makes me laugh.

7. Jaslene - I don't think Jaslene has been showing her personality off amazingly well, but the expectation the judges have for her to act like a drag queen 24/7 is absurd.

8. Felicia - I feel like she's a stealth bitch and I want more.

9. Cassandra - I wanted to like her, but we didn't get nearly enough content.

10. Renee - Renee is such a Debbie Downer it's almost verging on funny. Almost...not there yet.

11. Diana - The only way to be worse than Renee is to be her far sidekick. I hate the beta bitches tied to the hip of an alpha bitch. Step out of the shadows or shut up.

 

Photo Ranking:

0Wtqvqi.png

I do love this shoot! Maybe just because we got some great results from it. Holding ice cream was unnecessary, but idc.

 

1. Brittany - One of the best closeups in ANTM history. Her face is to die for! The long shot is flawless as well. Definitely in the conversation amongst my favorite shots of all-time.

2. Sarah - Where did this come from Sarah?! Her legs! That requires so much strength, and they just look amazing. I love the entire shaping of her body, and her face is the best it's ever looked. She really came out of nowhere and delivered such an amazing shot.

3. Jael - This is such a Jael shot. It really shows off her personality well, but is still extremely strong.

4. Felicia - Just a great shot. Not a lot to say about it, but I love it.

5. Dionne - I love the risks Dionne has been taking in these past two shoots and how she's showing off her personality. She's been pretty consistent so far.

6. Renee - It's good, but not great. She didn't fully commit.

7. Natasha - I love her pose and the risk she took. She just needs to figure out her face. Still a huge improvement from last week.

8. Cassandra - It's okay. Definitely needs more neck. I think she tried to take a risk and it didn't 100% land, but I don't hate it.

9. Whitney - I feel like she's been resting on pretty a bit and Whitney definitely needs to do more in her photos.

10. Diana - She's got a gorgeous body, but it's just not flattering in this picture at all. And her face is giving nothing.

11. Jaslene - I have no idea what happened to Jaslene with this shoot, but we can just call it a fluke and move on.

Meh this was the weakest episode yet. The Renee arc is starting to get more interesting, but it's also kinda depressing knowing everything we know about her post-show. I enjoyed the visuals of the challenge, but I was hoping to see more girls flop lol.

 

1. Jael - Glad I can finally put her on top! The sincerity in which Jael accepted Renee's shitty drawing :dead:. It reminded me of that scene from The Office where Michael got Oscar a shitty gift and then cackled when Oscar accepted it lol. I felt so bad for her having to do this photoshoot and was proud to see her persevere.

2. Renee - Okay she finally worked for me. Me watching Squid Game: Who would ever do that? Me watching Renee: Ohhhhhh she would. Renee is a living breathing critique on capitalism.

3. Whitney - Whitney is accidentally funny. She's really not self-aware and I love that for.

4. Dionne - She got about three funny confessionals this episode instead of just one :wub: PROGRESS :wub:

5. Natasha - She is so adorbz ❤️. Finally getting her breakout episode next week :wub:

6. Brittany - Lol her poor weave.

7. Felicia - She had more airtime when I remembered. I wish we got to see her go full villain, but she got robbed by Tyra's jealousy.

8. Jaslene - Her cockiness is still very much there and still fun.

9. Sarah - Sadly invisible.

10. Diana - Not Diana turning on Renee!

 

Photo Ranking:

Is this a popular photoshoot? The judges were obsessed with all the pictures but I don't really like it. Having to look dead but alive in the eyes at the same time? Idk not feeling it.

 

1. Renee - This picture is stunning though. I love the lighting and the outfit. She looks so eerie, but also kind of gorgeous. Dead and alive at the same time. Renee nailed this!

2. Sarah - Sarah has really stepped it up the past two shoots, I'm so drawn to her eyes. I wish she spread out more so she could sell the dress, but I still love this shot.

3. Natasha - Yay finally she did well! These upside down poses really do work for her lol. She did something unique while maintaining her face, very proud of her!

4. Brittany - I'm glad she took a risk and stepped outside the bath because it really elevated the shot.

5. Jael - I think she looks dead, but not very modelesque.

6 Jaslene - Good, but not great. I expect better from Jaslene.

7. Whitney - I think this the most gorgeous Whitney has ever looked in a picture, but I agree with the judges she looks very much alive lol.

8. Diana - This is Diana's strongest pose of the competition, but she's still simply outclassed by the other girls.

9. Dionne - I think the lighting in this picture is terrible and really hurts it. I think it had potential to be great, but she didn't quite reaching it.

10. Felicia - It's not terrible, just the weakest of the week. She just lied there doing nothing...which I suppose was the point lol. But nah.

A Natasha-centric episode :wub: I can't complain :wub:. Overall the episode was a lot of fun though! The challenge was fun with Sarah stealing the spotlight and the photoshoot was just hysterical to watch. Definitely a huge step up from last episode!

 

1. Natasha - This was just an episode full of Natasha highlights. Natasha #dragging girls while being in the right at the challenge, Natasha's bizarre relationship with her husband, Natasha continuing to blissfully brag about herself over every critique, and of course Natasha's performance at the photoshoot which is about one of the funniest photoshoots in ANTM history. An icon!

2. Dionne - Many fun Dionne moments this episode ❤️. Her absolute disgust as Sarah is stealing all the credit from her at the challenge :dead:. And I'm glad to see her finally performing well in the competition!

3. Whitney - Whitney's becoming one of my favorites on the rewatch that I had no memories of prior to it :rofl:. Idk she's kinda of a main character and she's so delusional ❤️. Her cheesy ass smile and pose as Natasha's begging her to get on the platform at the challenge ❤️. And then being like "Oop I guess I should've listened to Natasha oh well ^_^" :dead:

4. Sarah - I loooove know-it-all Sarah when she's got the other girls just fuming ❤️. The fact that she was going into DETAIL about why she slayed the challenge even though Dionne just threw everything at her and told her to put it on :dead:.

5. Jael - I want the raw footage of every Jael confessional plz. They are just so weird lmao.

6. Brittany - Sadly fading into the background.

7. Jaslene - Sadly fading into the background.

8. Diana - Diana sobbing about why she can't show Mr. Jay she wants this even though she answered "Just cuz..." earlier about why she wants to win :dead:

9. Renee - Renee is a tryhard. Her marching up to the big girls telling them they can't be on the cover of vogue, for why Renee? She's trying to be Melrose and it's not working!

 

Photo Ranking:

0M1p8Hu.png

Obviously this shoot was godawful, but it was also funny to watch. None of the girls could put this in their portfolio but idc.

 

1. Natasha - Iconic shot is iconic! Natasha understood the assignment! She really got into the character. I feel like I might be letting her performance at the photoshoot influence how much I love the shot, but idc.

2. Brittany - Probably one of the most modelesque shots of the bunch (if that exists lol). She also really understood the character. The eyes are a bit dead, but it also works.

3. Dionne - Dionne looks really strong and confident, and I think she's doing a good job selling the suit!

4. Renee - I feel like she kinda looks like a lady, but idc that much I really like the shot!

5. Jaslene - Once again, an average shot from Jaslene.

6. Whitney - I get what she was going for, but she didn't totally pull it off.

7. Sarah - This is such a feminine shot, she did not get into the character at all. It's pretty tho!

8. Jael - She got way overwhelmed by the shoot and the costume. Also shockingly feminine.

9. Diana - Just kind of uncomfortable...? It's a really bad shot.
