ANTM Cycle 19 episode 9
Where we last left off the girls from the super secret hopefully come back model camp were lined up and the recently ousted Brittany was added to the lineup.
As a reminder, the returning girl is determined by the ‘highest social media score’, gag (and not in a good drag queen way). The girls in the potential comeback line get to watch as their media scores show up first showing the girls that are NOT returning. But right before the scores start churning on screen Tyra tells them that those ‘IN’ the competition will be heading to Jamaica! Damn that’s cold…. Not only will we get to see who’s too sucky to return they just got slapped with the information that if they were better they’d have gone to Jamaica.
Though we can’t really remember any of them, here are their names and scores:
Tyra gives the loosing girls a few nice words and then kicks them the hell off the stage.
Everyone goes to pack for the flight. And the excitement is on a full time high level. But at the same time the girls feel like Victoria threw them under the bully bus at judging again. Also, there is a lot of concern about Leila’s return to the competition.
The final 6 girls get onto a plane and arrive and when they get on their bus they are gifted 6 beautiful young men who are their reward for arriving in the country…. Well okay, they aren’t rewards, they are local hottie models. They get taken to their house and get to pick rooms. Everyone gets to hang out and eat – Tyra heads the table with the girls and the boy models and Tyra was sharing advice and making recommendations. And there may be a love connection between Kiara and a tasty young man….
Next the girls head to their challenge – Jon’te their posing coach greats them (missing Ms J VERY much) and with him is Konshens a local dance hall musician. They get a quick teach on dance hall moves and the girls have to break into groups of two and create a dance hall choreography.
Kiara & Natasia – during practice it looks like these girls have all the rhythm and skill.
Kristen & Laura – their plan is to let loose…. But still remember to smize and tooch. Okay white girls, good luck with that.
Victoria & Leila - HSG is so in her head about going home and Leila is just back and is thinking she has to work harder than anyone.
The girls change into tights, bright shorts and tops – they are bringing dance hall realness.
|Go White Girl|
|Go White Girl|
|Go um...um...Go not quite sure of your race girl!|
The scores were: Laura and Kristen got a 7 for their performance. Leila and Victoria got an 8. Kiara & Natasia they got a 9 for their moves and choreo but were told that they were too severe overall. As the challenge winner they get scholarship $ in their make believe bank and jewelry back at the house.
Back at the house Kristen & Laura are completely freaking out about Leila being back and are plotting how good they will be at the photo shoot so she’s sent home. Funny how now that there is another threat to focus on Victoria and her home schooled ways are no longer a concern to them.
The photo shoot takes place on the river with both Rob (their judge) and a Jamaican model. The scene is they are on vacation with hubby, played by Rob, but they are having an affair with the hot river raft guide.
To further fan the flames of potential young love the girls get to pick their male model – Kiara picks her man Cory. You go girl!
Victoria is brought onto set and Johnny asks her what her back-story is and she starts talking and a ticking clock sound is going on while she yammers on. Keep in mind Rob is a judge and even he’s at a loss with her. His video clip quote was something like ‘you want to love her but she gets too lost in her characters’.
Leila’s so excited to be back and it looks like her photo shoot is amazing. I think that Laura is overly in her head worrying about Leila doing better than her… why haven’t these girls learned to just think about and focus on themselves and what they are doing?
Natasia is doing a good job and looks really lovely, but when you’ve got two hot men how can you not glow? Kristen is a bit of a wet fish. Johnny even wonders how she’s still in the competition in his off camera video clip.
Kiara is in heaven, Rob at her side and a hand on Cory’s chest. I’m amazed she didn’t go into shock over the amazing hotness of men around her. However, she may have been too distracted by her interest in the male model. Guess we’ll know when we see her picture.
All the girls are dressed in colorful sarongs. Guess this is the producer’s version of Jamaican-realness.
Nastasia was first and her picture was liked overall, both by judges and online. Rob liked her booty so he scored her a 10.
Leila got some meh online reviews, and a couple 8s but she only got a 6 from Tyra.
Kiara’s picture is awkward and flat. What we saw on the show was that she was really into the hotness of the two guys but the chosen picture totally didn’t represent any of that.
When Victoria was called, her picture was flashed up on screen and Kelly let out an Oh god (not under her breath). Victoria made her way up to the front and Kelly greeted her with a “How are you?’ and unknowingly Victoria answered ‘I’m good’. Tyra stops her and lets her in on this is Kelly stalling before she cuts you down with bad news. And there was bad news…. Kelly basically says that it looks like an advert that’s lacking interest of any kind. Rob told her that she over thinks everything. Victoria was asked her thoughts, and she just babbled on. Her scores were low – 6s and a 7.
Kristen was told she was a bit too hoochy with her toochy. Rob called her out on acting too cool for school, which created a crazy Trya moment where she gave a quick teach on acting the fool…. Or she was just acting cray. Either way it’s all the same in the end. Kristen’s scores were mixed.
Laura looked good in her picture. Rob liked the chemistry she presented. High scores across the board.
In the end the best picture goes to Nastasia – score of 39.3. Runner up to best photo is Laura – score of 38.9. Then comes Leila in third – score of 34.9. Kristen is fourth – score of 33.3.
Last two standing are Kiara and Victoria. Tyra starts the standard ‘two beautiful girls stand before me….’ Tyra tells Victoria that she can’t produce on film what she creates in her head full of stories. Kiara is told that social media is not feeling her but in the judging room they are into her, well, except for this weeks photo.
The girl still in the competition is Kiara with a score of 32.5.
Which means hat Victoria is going home, without a come back model camp with a score of 31.3. It’s time for her to go, no question.
I feel a bit bad for Victoria because her mom didn’t do her any favors by home schooling her. She needed to be in an environment with other kids that picked on her and made fun of her. Coming into this competition with other girls that will cut a bitch just because, is no place for a quick learn on how to act in social situations with other human beings.
Victoria was very disappointed in herself when Trya gave her a hug. Tyra tells her that she can be a model but that she needs to ‘take care of you first’ which as far as I’m concerned is a veiled way of saying: grow the f* up, get out on your own into the real world away from your mom, oh and hey, get some damn therapy!
