ANTM Cycle 9 Episode 11 – The Girls Go On Go-See Adventures [watch]

November 30, 2007

The top 5. More surprises to come. Henceforth my recaps are going to be cruel and sarcastic. Muahaha. Blame Tyra.

Recaps:

Hello Shanghai! Week 2.

The show begins with Heather talking on her performance last week, which ultimately got her in the bottom 2. Jenah too was insecure because she was in the bottom 3, and she felt disturbed as she was the most consistent one. Chantal starts to babble that Lisa should not be eliminated as Heather was fed lines to, and she still stayed in the game. (Yeah right, many girls in past cycles also had the same treatment.)

A Tyra Mail arrives, saying in Chinese that they’re going to go-sees the next day. They met with Susan Yang and a PT model, Shan Jin Ya. They went on go-sees, and were expected to be back by 6.00pm.

Chantal was dissed by a designer for wearing hot pink underwear and not skin-toned ones. Saleisha was said to be ‘a nice girl, but dull’. (You got that right!) Heather, meanwhile, got lost finding her first designer. (Why doesn’t her taxi just park in front of the place?) Bianca’s go-see went well, the designer liked her personality. Jenah was praised for her looks, which assembled model Christy Turlington. Heather is still lost and walking around aimlesly. (Bless the poor girl)

So far the girls are doing steadily except Heather, who still has 0 go-sees. Finally she managed to find one, (at this point, “Hallelujah” started to play) and was told to work on her walk, but her looks are definitely great.

Chantal clashed with Saleisha, who beated her to the next designer. Saleisha praised the designer’s work over and over again, and Chantal commented, “she kisses ass”. (Uh-huh.) After Saleisha left, Chantal picked up Saleisha’s footsteps and began to kiss ass herself…

Saleisha then clashed with Bianca, who was done at the time. Bianca asked Saleisha where the next go-see was, and Saleisha, ever so innocent, (yeah right) told her she didn’t know where it was located. It was actually just on the top floor of the same building, (she’d already been to that client) and Bianca left the building and headed back to her taxi. Bianca realized she had been played, and fumed at Saleisha. Saleisha was all smiles and joys and kissed more asses.

Heather was lost at her second go-see, and when she decided to head back to the agency she couldn’t find her taxi.

Time was short and Saleisha made a smart move by going back to the agency an hour earlier, which she was thankful for, as the traffic was heavy and it took them 45 minutes each to get back. At about a quarter to six, Bianca ran like crazy into the agency, and they both made it on time. Jenah arrived outside the time limit, and later, Chantal. Heather got back 40 minutes late, therefore the three of them were disqualified.

At night, the top5 went out for dinner at a ‘hot spot’, and met Susan Yang once more, who told Bianca the clients said she was great but was nervous. Saleisha meanwhile had a great personality, but her photos all appeared with the same expression. Susan announced that the winner’s face will be featured on a billboard on a cruising boat. When the girls stood up they saw…

Surprise surprise! Bianca’s mad and angry face on a passing-by boat, (coincidently) glaring at them.

Next day! Photoshoot with Nigel, the world’s famous, noted photographer. The girls’ mission: to stand out among a crowd, which in this case were lion and dragon dancers in a temple.

During makeup time, Nigel got turned off by Jenah’s over sarcastic attitude while talking to her. Said Jenah, “Somehow I wasn’t intimidated at all by Nigel, but when I got in front of the camera, I realized, oh.” Jenah didn’t impressed Nigel and Jay, and she freaked out by it for not getting much positive feedback.

Nigel, however got turned on by Saleisha’s presence, and even kissed her hand noisily, (!!!) much to the pleasure of Saleisha, who then did well in her photoshoot. Bianca’s problem was that she couldn’t smile and she was expression-less. Chantal was criticized for her over-posing and looked too show girl. Heather was okay and did great.

During Heather’s shoot, Jenah starts to mumble loudly about how she could do well if she wore Heather’s dress, which irritated Nigel much, and scolded her, something along the lines of, “Enough mumbling in the peanut shop!” (Which, I suppose, is the “fatal mistake” narrated by Tyra in the preview video)

In judging, Tyra revealed that the top 4 will go to Beijing.

Chantal was pointed out to wear skin-toned underwear in the future, and her shoot rocked.

Bianca wasn’t fluid enough with her movements in the photoshoot, and her face looked sleepy in the photo. Nevertheless, nice body language.

The designers love Jenah’s portfolio, but needed to work on her personality. Her photo was good, but Nigel went on about her sarcasm and her sense of humour.

Heather had a great photo, but was stiff during the phot sessions. The judges were disappointed that she only went to one go-see.

Roll call. Saleisha was first given the passport to Beijing. Then challenge winner Bianca. Then Chantal.

Heather and Jenah got the bottom 2. Expression-less Tyra said that both of them flawed in communication, but their photos in the competition were strongest and better than the other 3 girls.

Heather got the axe. Jenah mourned for Heather. Tyra gave Heather constructive criticism.

“You have to be so proud of yourself. Those clients you saw don’t know Heather. But people who have gotten to know and watch you on ANTM and being a part of your journey, maybe there are some clients out there that saw a little bit more than what those other clients saw today.”

Heather said before she went, “The experience is much more than the prize.”

Reviews:

This is definitely one of the saddest and hardest-to-bear elimination in ANTM ever.

WTF to the judges for letting Heather go! She and Jenah are evidently the best 2 models in terms of photographs there. Tyra just loves cheery girls. Urgh. Saleisha has Tyra and Nigel solid behind her back. But someone had to go, ah well. They all did fairly well.

Call Nigel a world-renown fashion photographer. In the photos, we can’t even see the girls’ faces clearly! Let alone their expressions. I like that the dragons and lions looked like gobbling up Bianca, Saleisha and Chantal in their photos while they left Jenah and Heather alone.

Jenah better avenge Heather! Go Jenah!

I’d rather have Jenah’s sarcasm rather than Saleisha’s overflowing-cutesyness with 10 spoons of sugar.

I’m proud of Heather. She’s gone so far. I hope she’s one of those models who didn’t won ANTM but still were and are, very succesful, eg. Elyse (C1).

Goodbye Heather. *sobs* All the luck to you!

Covergirl of the Week:

heather kuzmich

The girl who most definitely deserves it, Heather. Heather has bagged 8 CGOTWs, the second most in ANTM history after Naima (C4), who got 10. Wonder who’ll get next week’s now that Heather’s gone.

Future episode:

The girls have a photoshoot on the Great Wall wearing warrior costumes with Tyra! (What?! First Nigel, now Tyra? Who’s next, Miss J?) They also have a fashion show or something, cause they’re walking on the runway.
