America's Next Top Model Recap: "Viva Italia!"

America's Next Top Model Quiz: "Viva Italia!"


For all of Tyra's over-the-top gimmicks (and exaggerated facial expressions), I rarely find America's Next Top Model funny in an "Ouch! My stomach hurts from laughing!" kind of way — but last night was an exception. Not that anyone meant to be funny, but those girls shooting their Cover Girl commercials in Rome, and in Italian, was downright hysterical. And don't even get me started on how much I laughed once we saw the judges' reactions to the commercials! Dominique's shoot in particular was so "awesomely sexy drag queen," and with her facial expression that conveyed utter befuddlement by the Italian words, you have pure comic gold.

And then there was Lauren. Holy . . . wow. Her shoot was bad. I knew that walking and talking at the same time for her would be difficult (much less in a different language) but this was as big an ANTM train wreckage as I've ever seen. But as bad as Lauren was, the judges are definitely starting to grow tired of Whitney the pageant queen. You can check out a few more pictures from last night's show here, but first take my quiz to find out more about how the models fared in Rome!

This was the single funniest episode in history of America's Next Top Model....It made me really laugh out loud

Oh, and I LOVE Miss J. She's my imaginary BFF.

I love Dominique for her entertainment value, but I can't believe she's still on this show! I found it fitting that Tyra didn't see anything fake about Whitney's performance. I think Whit was just modeling herself after Tyra.

Yeah, what exactly IS with Tyra's frankly a bit racist 'KaTAHzhina'. She's said it enough! Just say it like she says it! I think these are the weirdest looking finalists yet. I mean, Dominique DOES look 40, Whitney was pretty until she got Anna Nicole hair, Fatima's eyes are too small and she's skinny even for a model, and Anya is kind of weird looking. Katarzyna is a raving beauty, but I doubt she'll win, especially after giving Tyra that attitude. I think Tyra is pushing for a plus size model this year, and Cover Girl uses Queen Latifah, so they're not averse to plus size spokesmodels. But Tyra seems to lean towards Whitney in casting, speaking up for her a lot. Lauren photographed better than anyone, but she ain't no Cover Girl.

"Have you heard? Tyra's the biggest supermodel in the world" hahahahahha... Anyone else find it funny that Tyra loved Whitney's horribly over-acted commercial? Well no sh!t! Tyra is the QUEEN of over-acting and acting like a idiot in general! I think the final three SHOULD BE (based on talent/beauty) Katarzyna, Fatima, & Anya. I have to admit I wasn't big on Anya at the beginning, but I like her look more now. She's beginning to look more polished. I think Katarzyna & Fatima look the MOST like ACTUAL MODELS. Whitney needs to SHUT UP about being plus-sized. And her pagentness is killing me. Dominique, seriously, why would they even allow a 24 year old WHO LOOKS THAT OLD into the competition anyway? I don't like her, and I don't think she could book many jobs because of how old she looks. (PS. I am 24 as well, but I am not trying to be a model.)

Whitney annoyed me immensely this week with her need to inform the viewer of her fashion knowledge. For example, "Rome is a huge fashion capital." and "Mattiolo is, like, a really big designer." She was mispronouncing it all the time anyway as "Moltiolo". Don't get me started on that commercial. Was she serious? How can you act like that and not realize how fake you're being. She just tries wayyyy too hard. Dominique may just be the worst looking post-makeover contestant ever and her attitude usually makes me want to slap her. Even though she's usually pretty arrogant, this week it was kinda good to see her able to laugh at her weaknesses. Boy, were those some weaknesses. Anya didn't do too well this week but you gotta love that girl. She's just so genuine. Fatima seems to be calming down a bit and getting better. Katarzyna is gorgeous and always does a great job, but I'll admit her personality isn't outstanding. I don't think that's incredibly necessary in the real world though. I'm always rooting for the underdog (loved Heather last cycle) but Lauren was beginning to bug me a bit with her antisocial antics. There's no way her C3PO walk would've have made it to the end anyway.

Whitney looked A-MA-ZING in her shoot! I really wish Dominique would go home soon!! I agree with Bella that she doesn't come across as nice. And that face....barf

I just don't understand why it's so freakin' hard to say Katarzyna's name! I do love that she basically told Tyra to get it right. Glad that Lauren's gone. Her "Lurch" walk and ridiculous awkwardness every single week were getting on my nerves since the party episode showed that she knows how to behave like a normal person.
bina324 bina324 7 years
how annoying was it when katarzyna told tyra her name correctly and tyra continued to butcher it? maybe it's cuz i'm polish (and i'm used to people butchering my name), but c'mon! i'm rooting for katarzyna and anya. i don't think anya is an airhead and i also think that she seems SO nice. when all the girls were bitching about fatima, she went and brought her food. i want dominique OUT, and if whitney doesn't stop being pageanty, she should probably go too.

4/10 guess id idnt pay much attention to detail:P but lauren was the most awkward human being i have ever seen. way too timid and just ...awkward. no other way to describe her. and not good awkward.

And I thought Anya was originally from Russia but she moved to Hawaii? So confused.

Yay for Katarzyna for telling Tyra off! I'm glad Lauren got off, it was too hard to watch her walk horribly every week. Whitney looks too American to be a supermodel, she could do more commercial stuff in America.

Miss J's 'Hell to the No' sign had me rolling! I'm rooting for Kat, Whitney or Anya (because she's nice)

I knew DannySF would love Anya falling. I did too. And yeah, jdots24, "She looks like a brotha" was classic.

Did anyone else catch when Miss J turned to Paulina and said "She looks like a brotha!" about Dominque? Oh I nearly fell over laughing!

I think Katarzyna might go all the way... Tyra thought Nicole lacked personality and she won. And Katarzyna is much better and so cute! I think it would be wonderful for cover girl and antm to have Whitney win too, great publicity for them... if cover girl was smart they would sign her... I was rooting for her (still am, somewhat) even though she is a bit much.

I really wish Whitney would win. She would be a great role model for younger girls that think they need to be stick skinny to be worth something. I'm so sick of Fatima and Anya. Anya is a total airhead and all Fatima does is complain. I loved Jay and Miss J's reactions to the commercials. Both were almost crying they were laughing so hard. This was the best episode of the season, unintentionally.

pianoteacher1, Dominique's leathery skin is definitely not fresh :) I don't know about Whitney. It seems to be a pattern by now that TYRAnt only puts the plus-sized girls on so she can get their hopes up and then kick them off.
pianoteacher1 pianoteacher1 7 years
To defend Whitney, I personally sign up an account!! A lot of people haven't realized (or didn't say) the reason why Whitney tries soooooo hard: she's a plus-size model! She thinks in order to compete with the skinny girls, she has to work much harder, and this leads to being fake and over the top (this is HER idea of being trying to get more attention). Someone, should tell her to tone it down and just being herself. If she gets kicked out, it will be at least because she didn't take a good photo, not because she's being fake. I think she can go into the final 2, but I think it will be Anya and Fatima (or the russian girl). Didn't the Italian guy says Dominique is "not fresh"? What an a**hole!!

I am so tired of Dominique and Lauren because they have the worst attitudes, and frankly neither of them are that beautiful. I really like Anya and Katarzyna
caryatid caryatid 7 years
I'm surprised they didn't just start calling Katarzyna "Kat" or something... the constant butchering of her name is getting insane! I really want Dominique to be the next to go, but I'm worried it's going to be Whitney!
brittanyk brittanyk 7 years
I love Katarzyna...but you know she's going to be eliminated soon because Tyra keeps b*tching that she doesn't have personality. That's pretty much a sign that she's going to get cut soon. I really don't think Whitney is that bad. She looks "pageant" because Tyra gave her extensions and bleach blonde hair. Seriously. It irritates me.
