The first photoshoot of every cycle of America’s Next Top Model is cause-driven. Past causes have been the environment and politics. Cycle 12 starts out with the issue of little girls wanting to grow up too quickly. Tyra mentions that one in five girls polled want to be a teen mom. What a strange new generation of girls.
Now it’s time to get down to the point of this post, my review of the photos. The photos are listed in order of best to worst. Each of the models had to portray a different childhood game that little girls play.
In the end, Isabella is sent home. I loved Isabella after the first hour of the premiere, but after looking through the photos, there’s not much argument that can be made against the judges’ decision to let Isabella go home.

Poor poor Isabella. I really, really liked her, and I still think she has the potential to make it as a real model in the industry. She has a fresh look and a nice personality. I can’t disagree that her first photoshoot was an absolute disaster, but I wish Tyra would have kept her around just a little bit longer. Oh well, I guess I’ll have to find someone new to cheer for.
Wow, Isabella gets my first zero rate of the cycle. This photo is a complete mess. Isabella’s pose is downright bizarre and doesn’t have anything to do with dodgeball. Isabella is looking off into some random distance for no apparent reason, and her hair and makeup are an absolute mess. I’m not sure what the photoshoot crew was thinking in setting up this shot.
