The makeover show is usually my favorite episode of "America's Next Top Model," but wasn't last night's just kind of depressing? I mean, poor Jael! First, she finds out that a close friend of hers has just died from an overdose, which I thought ANTM handled in a really uncomfortable way. (Also, does the episode title, "The Girl Who Cries All the Time," refer to Jael? If so, doesn't that seem a little insensitive, given that her friend just died?)
As if that weren't enough, Jael then had to endure 8 hours getting a very painful weave that looked awful. Tyra phoned in to stop the tresses (sorry, couldn't resist), and the stylists undid the whole thing and gave Jael a short boy-cut. Thankfully, the new 'do looks great, and she took a killer photo. Which is all the more impressive considering that icky photo shoot, which somehow managed to make both candy and naked models look entirely unappetizing.
Like always, the makeovers were hit or miss: I loved Felicia's bangs, but Brittany's weave took her from awkward/cute to awkward/skanky. (BuddyTV has some great before and after photos.) To see a gallery of makeover and photo shoot pics — including a disturbingly skinny Jaslene surrounded by desserts she should try eating —
Also, be sure to vote on which model you think will be sent home next!
