This is the second week on America’s Next Top Model that petty fighting at the model house took up the first fifteen minutes of the episode. It was almost 20 minutes in before we saw any fashion.
First Tyra Banks gave the girls a literally painful lesson. Apparently if you’re ever lost for a pose, you can simply act like you’re in pain with as much melodrama as possible, who knew?
The girls eventually had a photo shoot where each girl represented a genre of music. Some of the girls clearly didn’t identify with their assigned musical styles – like Katarzyna’s emo chick, Lauren’s pop princess, and Aimee’s R&B star. But it really helped showcase who was a better model – Katarzyna looked really fierce in her photo.
But I agree with the judges that Whitney did the best at the photo shoot. She looked like she could actually be grunge, and you got the feeling that she would have really committed to anything she had been given. She brings an edge to her photos that a lot of the girls don’t have yet.
I knew Aimee was simply too nice and bland to last, and she did indeed go home. I didn’t think she did the worst this week necessarily, but she certainly deserved to go home more than Claire, who I was surprised to see in the bottom two.
It looks like next week is a harder week for Whitney though, when her weight becomes an issue at a casting. This moment always comes for the plus-sized girls (size 10 in this case) and it will be interesting to see if Whitney can rise above it where others have failed.
