Clearly Tyra Banks is determined to destroy my reputation as a reality TV prognosticator. Remember my predictions a few weeks back? Ugh. Let’s just say I’m really glad I haven’t been called upon to predict the presidential race this year.
If you’ve been missing the show, let me catch you up to speed. My first pick as a finalist was Joslyn. But suddenly she was all kinds of sick, which usually is the death knell for any girl on America’s Next Top Model. And what was with her Cover Girl commercial? Ms. Personality turned on the Jade impression with her over-the-top eyes and gestures. So sad.
And on a side note from that episode – let me speak to “Eurogate.” That would be the inane argument put forth by Marjorie and Elina that just because they were born in Europe (in vastly different countries, I might add – explain to me how the French are like the Ukrainians), they are allowed to be socially awkward and screw up on challenges. They just blame it on the fact that they are so European! Lame. Girls, face it. It’s not like you have a legitimate personality syndrome like Asperger’s. If you can’t navigate the crazy pathways of Tyra’s fantasy world, then you might just suck.
Speaking of sucking, I don’t know what happened to Sheena when they got to Amsterdam, but she just couldn’t get any better than the mediocre level she’s been at for weeks now. I was so disappointed to see her go, but it’s hard to deny she deserved to be in the bottom two.
So…what do I do now? Make a new prediction, of course. I just won’t be able to get all “told you so” like I was last cycle!
At this point I’m going to say that it’s a showdown between consistent performer Analeigh against sporadically awesome but dumb as a stump Samantha (witness her photo this past week). I think Sam could get on my nerves in the future, so I’m going to move my chips over to Analeigh for the win.
Anyone else out there want to make a prediction?
