America's Next Top Model Cycle 11 Premiere Recap Quiz

America's Next Top Model Quiz: "Top Model Inauguration"

At the start of the last season of America's Next Top Model (er, cycle 10 — ugh, I hate using the word cycle!), I distinctly remember coming away from the premiere episode feeling like those girls were really feisty and ready to snap and make some noise and get up in faces and stuff. In the opening episode alone, there were, like, four shouting matches. So last night's season premiere was interesting, because the vibe was totally different this time around.

And can we say hallelujah for Tyra right now? I never thought I'd say this, but her brand of crazy was actually a really fun, hilarious, welcome escape from all the intense news that I've felt bombarded with this week.

There was something decidedly cheery about last night's episode, and even though it was pretty long, I was totally entertained the entire night. I mean, we had a futuristic "top secret training facility," a "Glaminator 11.0," and a "state-of-the-art runaway" that "processed data." Tyra talked like a robot to root out the initial group, and then we got an honest to goodness photo shoot and Nigel! Love Nigel. Oh, and I'm really glad Jay's hair eventually went back to normal. They probably focus-grouped his first style and learned it scared the children.

Anyway, it's time to test your knowledge on the challenges, the new girls, etc. You can check out more photos from the premiere here, take Bella's quiz here, and discuss the episode in the comments after you take my quiz!

I just watched this last night with my fiance - we liked Sheena and Marjorie, although Marjorie is a bit too awkward/nervous/over-caffinated... and we liked Elina, and we loved Isis. Those girls were being so cruel to Isis when she was doing her shoot, I'm so proud of her for standing tall and taking such a spectacular shot. I'm really rooting for her. We were both disgusted with Clark.

10/10 nice! I was glad with the decision of who to vote off this week. You could see she just wanted to be involved in drama. I did not like her at all. I really like Sheena. I think she is sincere and funny. I think so far I am rooting for her. I feel bad for Hannah because she hasn't been exposed to a lot and she will be growing up a lot on the show. I just hope she didn't say something that she would regret. Clark needs to go home.

I'm impressed by the quality of competitors this cycle, there are more than a few that could win this. I will enjoy the show more when they send Clark packing. I hate to watch ignorant bigots get away with bad behaviour.

Haha 10/10. I didn't know I was paying that much attention. I like Sheena and Marjorie. I'm not sure about the others yet. The show was hilarious last night though. The effects were so corny but amusing.

I love Isis and Sheena and really everyone BUT Clark and Elina. Clark just has an UGLY personality and it makes me think she herself is ugly. I absolutely love Tyra and her wackiness, she is hilarious.

9/10! Woot woot. I loved the premiere last night, even though I got sick of the "futuristic" theme. I though that was last year's theme, and this year it was the '60s hippie vibe, but I guess that just for the promo pics. Tyra is freakin' crazy and I hated Mr. Jay's hair, thank God he changed it back. Ms. Jay was just...there. Mmmm...I love Nigel :drool: I was happy with who they choose for the finalists, but I was surprised that girl Kacey (the one who asked Isis if she was a male) didn't make it past the first round because you know that she would've brought the drama and Tyra loves that. I did think it was appalling that these girls couldn't name 5 fashion designers, 5 literary heroines, 5 models, etc. Maybe they were nervous, but those seem like easy questions. So far my favorites are Marjorie, Analeigh, Brittany, Sheena, Hannah, and Isis. Elina seems like a weirdo to me, Nikeysha lacks class (I can't believe they didn't call her on the "flashing" thing), and McKey was kinda manly. I actually Isis looked kinda pretty and feminine until she opened her mouth, but I think she takes great photos and will go far in the competition. I think Clark's looks are too conventional, but I sympathasized with her because I totally forgot the definition of bureaucracy. It's a complicated term... I think that Sharaun was the right person to go home, her smile creeped me out.

I WANT MAKEOVERS NOW!!!! I love: Isis, Elina, Marjorie, and Sheena. I hate: Clark, Samantha, Lauren, and HANNAH. UGh.

Isis rocked my world! I totally support her. All the girls making those awful comments about her earned themselves many enemies in the ANTM audience. How hilarious was Clark's inability to grasp the term "bureaucracy?" Too bad it only furthers the stereotype that all models are idiots. I hate the cocky, obnoxious girls on the show, so I was really glad to see Sharaun go.

9/10. What a weird episode with all the cheesy effects. Oh well. It's some good old fashioned mind numbing tv. I'm really loving Sheena! She's my favorite so far, I think.

1. You go Isis! 2. i really like sheena (the kimora lee look-a-like). i think she's one of the most genuine girls in the house. i really like how she takes her "hoochy" criticisms; instead of going off the judges and being annoying she actually asks questions on how she can downplay it. you can tell she wants to learn. ALSO i really don't get how "hoochy" she is, yeah she has that swagger and confidence but it's sensual not sexual i think. :/ 3. after watching mckey (the one who was posing for environmental issues) be soo nice and accepting of isis's decision to be a woman, she stood out for me, but i was incredibly embarrassed for her on the voting shoot. LOL. gurl can't pose to save her life. 4. Elina (the vegan girl) is gorgeous and i want her lips but i think she tries too hard to be different and edgy. sooo i'm not feeling her too much. 5. Clark needs a good slap. Did anyone see the teaser for next episode? she was using the same mouth that spewed ignorant, hatred remarks about a transgendered person to kiss another female who is either a lesbian or a bisexual. but of course kissing another girl was all in the context of good fun. f*cking dumb*ss. i don't like her. i hope that tyra gives her a crappy makeover look that would diminish her confidence so she doesn't go far. LOL.

SOOO close - i never do this well though. the only one that i got wrong was about where marjorie was from. i actually kind of like this season - but we'll have to see how the challenges and shoots go for me to guess on who's going to win.

This premiere was pretty good. There was of course a lot of crazy Tyra stuff going on, but I agree with Buzz that it was a good way to spend the night watching tv. I think that Sheena totally looks like Kimora Lee even though she doesn't have any black in her! She is so over the top and "hoochy" as Mr. Jay told her, but she is also so sweet and one of the nicest girls in the house. I hope she stays that way the whole competition. Clark is already getting on my nerves. Shes not that nice and she didn't even take that good of a picture. Shes definitely going to be one of those outspoken obnoxious girls this season. I felt so bad for Isis last night, but was really glad that she stood up for herself. She seems like a brave girl who is proud of herself, so I think she'll be able to take the criticism and judgment from the other girls. And shes one of the only girls there who actually knows her stuff about modeling, as Nigel pointed out, so I think we're gonna see good things for her. Another thing I wondered about Isis is whether or not Tyra is going to pay for her to have her surgery, kind of along the lines of Joanie and Danielle getting those dental procedures. Clearly a transgender operation has a lot more that goes into it than fixing a snaggle tooth or closing a gap, but every so often Tyra does gift the girls with things like that...I guess we shall see...
