Top Model: Elimination #10

Paulina Porizkova is FANTASTIC.

She calls 'em like she sees 'em without sparing any punches. It makes me laugh. One of the best lines: "Allison was like a rickety little wind-up doll made out of tin. Not the best thing for a samba. She looked like her mechanism needed oiling."

The girls learning the samba was stupid. None of them could really samba- even Aminat, who was supposedly good.

Also, I was SO GLAD that Aminat did not win the challenge. Celia might be "desperate" but Paulina still recognized that Celia was fantastic.

Tyra's skits are getting lazier and lazier. Broken Jeep? Tyra screaming for help on the side of the road? Borrrring.

The little story she made up for Allison? Stupid. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Ugh. Cross between a bird and an owl ...?

I actually really like the set, with the giant nest of sticks and the jungle. Pretty and natural. I would hate to be there- lots of bugs and dirt and the spring/waterfall was BROWN. Gross.

I think Tyra actually seems like a good photographer. I'm sure they edit the film to show her in a more favorable light, but she seems the least ... Tyrannasaurus during her photographing episodes.

Judging was SO STUPID. Miss J with the giant, ungainly bow tie and the horricious twirping, hooting? Ew.

Allison's picture was beautiful. She looked like a bird in a nest:























Every time I see Teyona in a picture, it's jarring to see her NOT in a picture but just standing there in front of the judges. She looks so good on film and SO BAD in person. I seriously can't believe how photogenic she is. Her face looks so good here (her body looks boxy and like she's wearing pantyhose).



















Celia's picture was the opposite of Teyona's- pretty body but weird face. I still like this one:























Aminat doesn't seem to be able to close her mouth. I hate that slack-jawed look. I thought she looked overwhelmed in the picture:
















I liked the colorful judging room. I liked that the girls all seemed to have talked about wardrobe ahead of time and kind of matched with their little mini-dresses (although I hate Teyona's dress).

I love Celia. I was sad to see her go. She was a graceful loser and I'm sure she'll be fine because she's a smart, ambitious girl. It occurred to me (finally!) who she reminds me of: Jennifer Morrison (Cameron on "House"). No?
























I also heard that Paulina's not coming back next season. Hopefully that's not true, because she's fantastic. :/
