Finally! After months of patiently waiting and partly enjoying Cycle 6 of BNTM, a winner has emerged- 18 year old Tiffany Pisani! I like Tiffany. I think she takes amazing photos and is FIRE on the catwalk but my main issue is with the fact that it was up to the public and not the experienced judges to pick a winner. This is not X factor where at the end of the day, it is the public who vote that will end up buying records and paying to see their faves in concerts. This fashion, HIGH fashion. So I really think the final decision should not have been placed in the hands of the public. Top Model is not a popularity contest. And by the way, what exactly was Joy doing in the top 3?
Anyway, all in all, I think this cycle was just there. To be fair, I have never seen any BNTM before. I have restricted my Top Model watching to nothing but the original (no one does is better than Tyra!) but I decided to give it a go and see how it will turn out. My worst fears were semi-realised. I felt there was waaaaay to much nudity going on. Don’t get me wrong-I understand that this is fashion, modelling, etc and the girls knew what they were signing up for, but based on the standards of ANTM which I have grown accustomed to, certain parts of the bodies should have been blurred out. Also, I found that episode where there were male models and 2 of the girls had to fool around with the male models a bit obscene. It just doesn’t happen on ANTM (my yardstick). I also felt there was a bit cruelty going on with the -5 degree photoshoot. That was EXTREME! But the girls took it quite well.
Of all the girls here are my five best models these season:
ALISHA: I loved her modelling. I loved her humour. The girl cracked me up every time.
CHARLOTTE: I think she is absolutely AMAZING. She is so funny as well. Also, she took the jibe by Julien/Julian McDonald about being too fat quite well.
TIFFANY: She won. Need I say more?
AMELIA: I think is really quirky
KIRSTY: Granted, Kirsty was over-confident but I hink she left too early. She modelled well through out and I think the only reason she got the boot so early on is ’cause of her attitude.
So there you have it-my little opinion on BNTM. I’m not too certain I shall watch the next one. This one wasn’t too impressive so I guess I’ll be sticking to my good ol’ ANTM…’Wanna be on Top Top Top Top….’ Cycle 15 is on!!! I’ll be blogging about it soon…
Here is a picture of my fave (for now): ANN…
That’s all folks (for now).
