America's Next Top Model Cycle 11 Recap: "You’re Beautiful, Now Change"

America's Next Top Model Quiz: "You’re Beautiful, Now Change"

Sometimes the same-old same-old on America's Next Top Model (like the CoverGirl "put on your own makeup" commercial challenge) can get tedious and boring. But you know what I will never, ever tire of? The makeover episode! This is generally when Tyra and gang take their surreal little skits to new and absurd heights, and at least one or two models have a total crying breakdown.

I have to say, I still don't get the crying. For us regular, non-model folks, a dramatic, asymmetrical, boy-style haircut might be traumatic, but these girls are some of the tallest humans on Earth, with photogenic faces to boot! They're of the "I look fierce even in a potato sack" class. They should know that while their new look might be a little weird, they'll still be hot — and this is an area Tyra knows well. Then again, what they put some of the girls through actually looks painful at times.

Anyway, throughout this episode most of the ladies had great attitudes and even managed to avoid serious drama in the house. An upbeat, grand old time was had by all — including me!

So were you paying close attention? You wanna be on top? You should definitely check out some more photos from the episode, but first, take my quiz!

What story did Tyra tell the girls that led into the topic of makeovers?

10/10 woo hoo! Elina's hair cut looked a little crazy at first, but it started to look a lot better by the end and now she looks SO much like my friend Sam. Her photoshoot was gorgeous, as was Samantha's. I really want Annaleigh to do well, I like her! She needs to take better pictures though. Clark's hair looks boring still. I think it made her face look more severe too, Buzz. I hoped Brittany would go farther in the competition, but she seemed like she didn't know how to model.

Oh and Hannah's hair? I didn't think it made her look more like a model, I think it made her look more like a little girl! But maybe that's just me and my bangs-hating ways. And McKey's hair waaaas crazy severe. I don't dig the sideburns!!

I think Marjorie looks much better as a brunette, being blonde washed her out. Clark's makeover was boring and I wasn't impressed by her photo. Boooooring! Samantha's makeover was amaaaazing. Her photo was stellar, too. That makeover really knocked her into top model contention. I felt bad for Isis. Last week's picture was boring, this week's was uncomfortable... I don't think she will last much longer... I loved Lauren Brie's photo! It was so etherial. The judges were right, she's not that impressive in person but her photos are AMAZING. Just the opposite of Clark. I loved Elina's makeover. It took some getting used to, I think she had to figure out how to work the curls and how to wear them, but WOW! Her photo was gorgeous. The red really works well with her skin. And I love how her hair isn't straight-straight-straight like most of the other girls'.

My CW station never broadcasts ANTM properly. There are always video or audio problems in the episode. With this episode, the audio feed was just gone for the first 50 minutes. So, I was spared the witch voice at least. But man, the close captioning for this show also sucks. It doesn't seem pre-programmed like most shows, so I wasn't quite sure what was going on for half the time. I feel really badly for the hard of hearing people who try to watch this show. I haaaaaaaated that ridiculous fug red weave that they gave Elina. I hope they fix that monstrosity. Every other makeover was pretty darn bland this year. I wish they had made Marjorie a nice coppery redhead. She looks very blah in brown.

I hear ya, tlsgirl! My thumb was twitching on the mute button the whole time Tyra was hyperventilating her way through the "Good Fierce Witch" thing. That routine needs to go the way of Miss J's spangled eyebrows. I'm also not a fan of Elina's 'do. She has very delicate features and the big red extensions overwhelm her totally. Best makeover: Samantha, hands down.

Please please please get Hannah off my TV screen. I'm so sick of Alaskan women right now.

I don't like any of them. Except for Isis's.

"Her eyes looked frightening during this part." I totally agree Buzz! I'm really liking Elina and at first I didn't think I would. I like annaleigh too though ... I so hope that her pictures improve! Oh and does anyone else think that McKey (or whatever her name is) looks like Rumor Willis now??

i think mckey's is too harsh - it photographs well, but in person she looks harsh harsh harsh. i like elina's, she came out looking like a mix of angelina jolie and brittany from cycle 8, who photographed well like elina does. marjorie looks a little like claire danes to me. i like how well joslyn and lauren brie photograph - i wouldn't expect it but i always like their pictures. and i really like annleigh and hope that her pictures start improving!

Tyra must NEVER EVER again do that awful Fierce Witch voice. It totally made this episode a little painful to watch. Like I wanted to mute the whole thing. Also, I totally thought Elina looked like Carrot Top at first, but I guess it wasn't so bad. Why didn't her picture show the swimsuit at all though?
