Aminat and Fo impress as Wall Street investors, America’s Next Top Model 12 Episode 4 ANTM
March 18, 2009 by vongsundara
The preview showed that tonight’s episode would include lots of Miss J and runway walking, which is always a good thing. There’s not much wrong that this show can do for me. I’m way too obsessed.
Overall, it was a fun episode, and I enjoyed that we got to see more of New York due to the theme of the photoshoot: famous areas of New York. I wasn’t too sad to see Nijah go home. She’s extremely pretty, but she’s been boring me to death the last couple of weeks.
Aminat and Fo
Aminat and Fo are portraying Wall Street. It’s interesting that there are two models in each photo. They both looked like they were having fun.
Damn, the final photo looks great. It’s amazing that Fo is holding on to a laptop and a cell phone while looking fierce. Aminat’s bone structure really came through. This is definitely my favourite photo of the bunch.
Review Score: ★★★★½
Kortnie and Nijah
Kortnie and Nijah are in Soho, portraying an artist and her muse. Nijah is really boring me with her poses, but I can’t get over Kortnie’s tan.
The final photo came out even worse than I thought it would. Nijah got burned really bad by the judges for her poor performance. Kortnie didn’t do much better but Nijah was so bad that the judges didn’t even bother to mention Kortnie much at all.
Review Score: ★★☆☆☆
Celia and Sandra
Celia and Sandra are portraying fabulous nannies who ignore their babies.
The photo looks really high fashion. It doesn’t look like nannies at all, but the photo is hot. The clothes look fabulous. I think both models did equally well, but the judges really liked Sandra’s performance better than Celia’s. I think the big difference is that Sandra is taller and commanded more of the photo.
This is probably the best looking photo in the group, but I have to deduct a point because the models didn’t portray nannies at all.
Review Score: ★★★★☆
Allison and London
Allison and London are portraying 5th Avenue socialites. London is convincing as a bitch but Allison seemingly thought too hard about it.
The photo did not work at all. There is no emotion coming through the photo. London somewhat comes off as a bitch in the photo, but Allison comes off as boring and dead.
Review Score: ★☆☆☆☆
Tahlia, Natalie and Teyona
Tahlia, Natalie and Teyona portray tourists in Times Square. Thank goodness that Tahlia got over her insecure phase.
Tahlia stole the photo with her real joy. Teyona’s mouth is way too wide and Natalie looks like a B actress. Overall the photo is good to look at, but there are too many flaws to make this a great photo.
Review Score: ★★★☆☆
Live Review Micro-Blogging Transcript
# I get way too excited to watch America’s Next Top Model every week.
# Okay good, the opening commercial break is over.
# Teyona’s being featured quickly, which might spell bad news for her. Nijah’s also being featured. Most likely, it’ll be one of them who goes home tonight.
# Ooh, the Tyra Mail shows hints that it’s runway walk day.
# Natalie’s teaching the girls how to walk which is pissing off Aminat for some reason.
# Haha, Miss J’s charm school. Miss J’s hair is totally hot. I don’t know about the outfit, though.
# Grace, poise, elegance, let’s see whether the models can keep up.
# Haha, spot-on impersonation of Sandra, Mr. J.
# Damn, Allison got a book put on her head. I think she’s not totally hopeless, though.
# Cool, Bianca and Chantal are visiting. I love both of them. They both really improved their walks since last time.
# Tahlia needs thicker skin. Natalie didn’t even say anything that bad.
# Wow, they’re actually going to show Teyona’s re-makeover. Hmm, I don’t actually notice the difference.
# Ooh, Jill Stuart. She has fabulous designs.
# Walking with bags? What a strange challenge.
# Here comes Miss Ann Shoket, Editor-in-Chief of Seventeen magazine.
# Celia opens the show. She looks a little awkward with those bags.
# Natalie just added a twirl in the middle of her walk. I’m not sure it totally worked.
# Kortnie is way too tanned. When will these girls learn?
# They’re really playing up Allison’s fear. Aminat is a runway queen!
# The burst of air when they come out of the door is a little much. I’m not sure why there are obstacles on the stage. It looks a little bit too contrived.
# Fo definitely stood out with her walk today, lots of personality.
# Wow, Tahlia’s completely falling apart in this competition. I don’t think she’ll be lasting much longer.
# What, Natalie won even with that bizarre twirl?
# Damn Tahlia, don’t give up. What is wrong with you?
# “Give it your all tomorrow or you may get thrown under the bus.” Hmm, wonder what type of photoshoot it’ll be today.
# Famous areas around Manhattan, not a bad photoshoot concept at all.
# Ooh, here comes Mike Rosenthal, one of the best photographers who have been on ANTM.
# Hmm, I like the makeup and hair. It’s very exotic.
# I’m not sure I like that the photoshoots were group photos again like last week. Oh well, I guess I’ll reserve judgment until we see the finished photos.
# The finished photos were not bad. Half were great and half weren’t so much.
# Wow, Sandra got called first. I liked Aminat’s photo better.
# It’s down to Allison and Nijah. It’s definitely going to be Nijah going home.
# Cool, Allison gets to stay. I think this show would be boring without her.
# What a strange preview. A drag show and a model intervention, should be interesting next week.
# I liked this episode. I’m not sure it’ll stand out when I look at the season as a whole, but it was good for what it was.
