You're supposed to be giving me credit, not her!'

!
THis is why I didn't like Yoanna, whenever someone talked about her or she didn't win, she went into this type of pouty facial expression. TO me she is just as bad as camille, just not as vocal. She is shaped like a square, and had extra skin around her midsection. It is gone now, but during one of the episodes, not the pants one, I saw it. The one when they were walking in lingerie I think. Her face is fierce though (with the right makeup and lights) in those after party photos it looks to harsh. Like she lost weight the wrong way.

After looking at he after party photos, the top 3 were the right ones.

But don't you think the losers should have stayed in Milan to find jobs on their own? I would have.

Yoanna has very strong facial features which will carry her far, but she will continue to spend a lifetime trying to be thin. It is obvious that she isnt naturally thin and will always have to fight hard to stay that way. Even at her weight, she still has flabs and you can see it in her bone structure that that’s not her ‘healthy’ weight. She just looks square and shapeless to me. Her body is...how do I say this...not compact...it just looks loose and sorta sick.
Great face tho
Cant say I am happy she won. I think Mercedes should have been the winner. Anyways, she came far and thats good enough.

Janice was great looking. She just got old, thats all
In 45 years, you’ll b wondering how Angleina Jolie or Charlize Theron could have ever been considered beautiful.

Oh and why is smoothing down baby hairs when your hair is back a "ghetto thing"?

Did you look at the before and after pics? People don't usually age upwards and extra tight. She had surgery and she's admitted to it. It's not like it's a secret.

well it is something that black girls do or used to do. I'm sure it isn't limited to black girls, and she didn't have to say ghetto. if it didn't happen naturally some girls would pull hair out of their pony tail, and use that dooky gel to gel them down.

Yohanna would be a great cosmetics (Lancome/Estee Lauder) type model

I thought that's what she meant, but I know a lot of white girls who have those baby hairs too - most of them are curlies. It's interesting that some people try to create that look on purpose, I think those hairs are a pain in the butt to deal with.

Well I have only known black girls to gel that part of their hair forward. Lets not talk about when we would gel down the regular hair just to get that "baby hair look". Tyra really meant "it's a black thing" but said "it's a ghetto thing".

I NEVER would have spotted the tape if you hadn't pointed it out.

Where do you guys keep finding these pics? I can't even remember what some of the earlier evictees looked like.

Ok, I broke down and finally watched this show last night. It was much more interesting than I had anticipated.

I wish Mercedes had won. Yoanna will be a great cosmetics print model---the face is flawless, iconic even. But she looks terrible on a runway. Mercedes with a little more work and polish will set a runway on fire---she can work it. She has the walk, the attitude and the body. Her face is still pretty, just not as striking as Yoanna. I think she'll have a great career, and probably eclipse Yoanna in the end if she plays her cards right. I think it will be difficult for Yoanna to get a major (or even minor) cosmetics/print campaign, which will be her strength. She can do catalog work with full clothing (not lingerie) but that won't get her to the big leagues.

Come on now, we all know Mercedes should have won. She was working it on the catwalk!! That other chick cant even walk!! I dont think Tyra will ever let an Ethnic (you know what I mean) model win. Too much competition for her. Mercedes is beautiful, young,great body, sexy and a great personality....She could take Tyra's spot in a second. Tyra is "THE" Black super model and she sure as heck wants to keep it that way. I am not watching it anymore. I also hate when Tyra puts on the fake accent when she says "Milano" :x I guess one of these days Tyra HAS to let an Ethnic model win... But in the mean time Tyra dont want anyone stealing her spotlight.

Thats my opinion.

I guess I don't agree b/c Tyra has already made her mark.. She has her contracts and is on to other things. Why should she worry about a newbie?

She needs to be worried about finding a new make up artist.

I guess she can't win for losing b/c if she picked a Mercedes you would have a whole lot of white ppl complaining about racial bias.

Tyra has moved on from being a model to being a brand. What kind of work does she get now? Victoria's Secret? Not exactly high fashion. I think she's moved on to being Tyra The Brand.

And this show is so NOT going to produce any kind of next top model. If it produces a working model, I'll be impressed. It's about good tv. As long as it's good TV, I doubt Tyra really cares who wins - as long as they are fashiony enough to keep the show from looking like a total joke.

If they were really looking for the next big thing, they would be scanning the malls for really tall 14 year olds.

Uh, since you watched the show, did you happen to notice that Tyra wasn't the only judge?
