America's Next Top Model Recap: House of Pain

America's Next Top Model Quiz: "House of Pain"

First of all: Hello, Claire and Lauren's deep-seated anger! The two girls in the house I thought would remain low-key and relatively drama-free through this season of America's Next Top Model revealed themselves to be short-tempered this week. I did feel for poor Dominique, who seemed a bit ganged up on by those two and Whitney, and for the life of me, I can't figure out what she did to really get them angry like that aside from her alarm clock issues.

Unfortunately, two-thirds of the show was spent on that nonsense when we could have devoted more time to watching the best thing ever: naked photo shoot with Nigel! The lucky girl who struck the best "pain" pose during a tutorial-as-challenge session with Tyra won a one-on-one photo shoot shot by that dreamy hunk of an Englishman himself. Other than that, the photo shoots were pretty straightforward, with each girl dressed as a different musical genre (if I were a country music fan, I'd be most offended by Claire's outfit). Also, I'm sorry to report that the Tyra mail ticker group-reading sequences I know drive a lot of you nuts aren't going anywhere.

You can check out more pictures from the show here. But first, take my quiz to find out which lucky model got to roll around in bed for Nigel and who was, as the judges stated, out of tune.

I was really surprised at Claire's "YES!" and jumping in the air when she was called at the end... It just seemed very insensitive to Aimee's feelings... I also think the nude photo shoot with Nigel was pretty creepy, but that may be because I feel very reserved about my body... kind of like Aimee..

Dominique needs to learn to take responsibility for her actions! Stupid girl...

The Tyra mail thing is driving me so crazy, as is all of the immaturity, from everyone. I mean, Dominique is certainly crazy, but just try to behave yourselves. Also, some of the editing was off in the naked shoot, because you could definitely see some things you weren't supposed to be able to. Sigh, Nigel is so hot.

I question if the whole conversation on the couch really occurred right next to Dominique or not. I think that may have been a trick on the part of the producers. After the "fight" went on, I rewound and it looked to me like that was the result of some crafty editing.

thorswitch I agree with your post completely. I also used to really like claire, whitney and lauren but this episode put them at the bottom for me. regardless of how annoying another person is there is no place for immaturity and ganging up on another. I really don't like Dominique and agree that she looks like shes a 40 year old soccor mom (no offense to soccor moms!). I too really love Anya! She is so cute and sweet. And where the heck is she from?

I can't stand Dominique! Whitney bugs me as well. I still don't have a favorite yet. Normally by now, I have someone I would like to see win but none of these girls are impressing me so far.

I agree the nudity part was strange and definitely creepy - but I couldn't blame that on Nigel because I'm clearly biased and figured it was some producer's idea.

Oh yeah, ditto on what francesca fiore said! Tyra gets crazier and crazier every time I see her! Seriously, what are they putting her on?
koolbr33z3 koolbr33z3 8 years
I agree that Dominique looks old and she reminds me of Lisa D'Amato from one of the previous cycles. However, I think it was unfair for the girls to gang up on her like that. They were all being pretty childish. Also, they need to come up with a new way to deliver Tyra mail because I want to rip my ears out every time I hear these girls screeching the message out of sync!

thorswitch, I completely agree with your post. Personnally, I'm on team Whitney/Claire/Lauren. Yes, they were immature (but are still my three favorite models). But I can't stand Dominique. She thinks the whole show revolves around her and that every girl is jealous of her, saying things like "They're mean because they want to be like me" or whatever... Give me a break !

"Every time Tyra gets on-screen now I just think about how many people in the industry must be laughing at her. Granted, I understand that the girl has done many great things in the modeling industry and she's paid her dues, but seriously, the girl is downright ridiculous." Dude, TOTALLY!!! She gets worse and worse every time she shows up.

Part of the problem with Dominique is that she never cares when she does something that causes problems for any of the other girls (such as having her alarm clock go off 4 times before they actually had to get up just because she doesn't know how to set it properly) and NOTHING is ever her fault. If you listened to her during the clock incident, she just kept trying to brush it off like it wasn't her problem at all, and she didn't get why the other girls were upset. And last week, even though everyone else in the house was aware of the phone list and was able to remember to go to the phone room when their time came, Dominique was angry because no one ever came and TOLD her it was her turn. No one had to tell the other girls (at least as far as we know,) but Dominique just expected she should be told. As for Whitney and whether or not she's racist, I have no idea. Dominique's accusation, however, wasn't based on Whitney having said something offensive about blacks in general nor had she done anything to indicate she had trouble around black people. Dominique's problem was that Whitney had criticized HER personally, and apparently felt that if a white person criticizes a black person - justified in their criticism or not - it's racism, which it isn't. THAT is a personality conflict. If Witney had the same problem with all the *other* black girls, then maybe we'd be talking racism, but all we're talking about here is that Whitney doesn't like Dominique.

Nooooooo, why are the cutting Katarzyna's hair? Probably because they can't stand her so they're taking it out on her hair ... I dunno, I don't see what the big deal was about the wig. She's gorgeous the way she is. I think that Stacey-Ann definitely should've been the one to go. Nothing about her stands out. Aimee and Claire have both done well the entire competition. Oh, and yeah, that country outfit was horrible. Hello ANTM stylists, country doesn't mean country-western. Every time Tyra gets on-screen now I just think about how many people in the industry must be laughing at her. Granted, I understand that the girl has done many great things in the modeling industry and she's paid her dues, but seriously, the girl is downright ridiculous.

I agree jasmint, Dominique looks really old. She kind of creeps me out, but I felt really bad for her this episode. Up until now Claire was probably one of my favorites, but her whole thing with talking smack about Dominique while sitting right in the same room was just stupid and b*tchy and cruel. But speaking of creeps me out- am I the only one who thinks Nigel is creepy? He seems like an icky man to me, I kept thinking he totally came up with the nude modeling idea on his own and talked Tyra into it. Ew.

Also, HELLO, am I the only one who thinks Dominique looks SO OLD?!???? If I saw her walking down the street I'd probably think she looked like a well-maintained mid-30-something. There's no way I'd think she's actually younger than me!

Anya is growing on me also, Whitney is not. I started off liking her but now, not so much. And I really liked Claire up until last night's episode -- she sunk to a level I really thought was beneath her. Still love Lauren though!

nyaradzom, i think it was more of "My best friend is ba-lack." whitney has a weird way of talking. i can't explain it. lol. and i agree emilie, i love katarzyna's hair now. i'm really curious what they will do. it'll probably resemble rhihana' s hair in the umbrella music video. that would be cute. i'm really hating claire right now. i love how she said that she never said she was the bigger person when arguing with dominque, but girl you are a mother and a wife....if anything your maturarity level should at least be up there. AND anya is growing on on me. i find her endearing with her accent and all.

Fun quiz! Everyone went crazy for the wig Katarzyna had on but I kind of think she looks like a chubby emo highschooler in her photo. I'll be very curious to see the new cut on her- I just think her face is a bit too full for a short style.

I DETEST Whitney I just think she's a cow and an instigator. I'm not fond of Cominique but really did Whitney have to get involved ? Ugh I can't stand little miss my best friend is black therefore I'm not racist.
