The judges deliberate. Anya isn't impressive in person, but photographs like a dream. Allison's body is lopsided from too much Pilates, and/or she looks like an Upper East Side princess who wants everyone else to carry her Prada bag for her, and/or she is a wannabe Gossip Girl. They are going to tear this girl a new one in the coming weeks. Marvita was busted on the catwalk, but busted through her picture. There's something warm and lovable about Amis, but she's not out of the ordinary. Aimee is fabulous. Lauren reminds Paulina of a young her -- she was a punk and sort of awkward and thought she was all cool. Atalya is pretty but unexciting and unmemorable. Nigel is a fan of Stacy-Ann. Katarzyna wears too much makeup. Claire is a good learner. Whitney is plus-sized, and has a plus-sized invisible wind machine. Dominique is a man. Fatima's photo was great, even if it was her only good one of the shoot.
The girls stand before Tyra. There are 13 of them, and only 12 photos in Tyra's hands, representing the girls who are still in the running towards becoming America's Next Top Model. Anya is called first, followed by Claire, Whitney, Lauren, Aimee, Fatima, Marvita (who has the world's shiniest face), Katarzyna, Stacy-Ann, Domninique, and Allision. This leaves Amis and Atalya. Atalya is pretty, but not much more. And I think we all know that pretty and modelesque are not the same. Whereas Amis is interesting and edgy, but that falls flat in her pictures. However, there's no crime worse than being pretty, so Atalya gets the boot. She doesn't know why she's the first to go and thinks it's a big mistake -- she has a lot of potential and didn't get to show it. Her family was really rooting for her, and it's going to be hard to go back to them knowing they'll be disappointed. And, like, the show probably didn't even pay for a cab. Oh, Atalya, look on the bright side. At least no one said you looked like a snot rag! Even though you kind of do.
Next week: Makeovers! And Allison gets Fatima all worked up about something.
