America's Next Top Model is...Jaslene!

America's Next Top Model is...Jaslene!

Whoa, I didn't see that one coming! I doubted Renee would be cut from the final two and that Jaslene would become America's Next Top Model. I for sure thought it was going to be between Renee and Natasha. And actually, I'm glad I was mistaken, because Jaslene blew her competition out of the water in the final runway challenge. Did you see her slim bod and the way she pranced down the Sass & Bide catwalk? She was fierce! Once she toned down her hair and semi-cheesy outfits, the fashion model emerged. Also, her photographs were stunning through and through so I am happy with the outcome.

Natasha had a unique look, but she just didn't shine for me during the final competition and that is really when they need to step it up. Poor Renee for looking too old for her age. I'm not worried about her though, as I think she is model material and got quite enough exposure from the show. What do you think about the judges' choice for ANTM?

Definitely wanted Natasha to win. Yeah, Jaslene did better on the runway, but I thought the season was a little more biased towards her. Jaslene did well during the season when she was given the opportunity to be fierce, but when she had to be softer, she didn't look as good. I think the episode that killed it was the High School Stereotype episode. Jaslene -- again! -- got a fierce pose when Natasha had to struggle to figure out what she was supposed to be portraying. I liked Natasha's look so much better.

You that don't already know:Jaslene is with Elite Models and has some stunning pictures on that site. She has gained 10 pounds and looks fab. Her face has filled out properly and she has balance now. You should see her Elite pics. Those are gorgeous. She has only foundation on! She is so beautiful in those Elite pics.

Jaslene is the winner. The judges felt she was the best choice out of all the contestants. The facts are on the table: Jaslene had never been in the bottom two ever! Which is a record. Jaslene's pictures have been some of the best out of all of the photos taken in this cycle. Jaslene has an inner beauty that was unmistakable. Jaslene is photogenic and she has a look that is her own. The word "Exotic" is a generic word that some individuals use in order to justify what they think are not "normal" features and what is supposed to be rare. Jaslene's looks are not rare or "Exotic" she is a Latina and her look is the "Norm" so I refrain from ever using that archaic word, it's so 60s. Jaslene won and that can never be taken away from her. She has embarked on a career that is rich and full of opportunities. God Bless You Jaslene and much success to you and your family!

As soon as I saw Jaslene back this season, I knew she was gonna win! She went from ghetto fab to just fab! I think she is one of the better winners so far and can't wait to see her life as a Cover Girl next season (they have been so corny since Eva's, we need some spice here ppl).

I wanted Renee to win then i went to Jaslene. I am happy she won but she needs more meat on her. Renee had too much of a attitude. Too harsh. Natasha was good towards the end but then i thought we want America's not a Russian that married to an American. Nothing against Russians but tell me how much controversy would have been said to the judges if they picked Natasha. It was a no brainer between the two. Renee and Jaslene hard chioce since Jaslene only uses like two different facial expressions.

my vote was for natasha. i thought she rocked the runway. but some of the things she that whole thing with the cellphone and her husband...kind of made me think she was just a few fries short of a happy meal.

She's the 1st Latina to win. You go girl! I do think she is too skinny, but isn't that the industry? I'm naturally thin and the way I eat, I should look like a hippo. Maybe it's the same for the genes! She looks a lot like Janice Dickenson

In this cycle there where fewer high fashion shoots. Perviously when the top girls where whisked away to an exotic location, their photos where more visually exciting. The models could have been fabulous if they where put in more couture situations.

Jaslene is fierce. Once Samantha was cut, I was rooting for Jaslene. She's a combo of 70's models Gia Carangi (sp?) and Janice Dickinson. She would have been amazing as one of Yves Saint Laurent's runway models. She has real presence, and I think she's naturally thin, which is rare in the modeling world, I think.

Neecalle, I definitely empathize with your concern over how painfully thin Jaslene is, although I wanted her to win out of who was left. Any thoughts on whether or not she would even meet the BMI requirements some cities are imposing?
