I'm not surprised this was a non-elimination challenge. I mean, LaToya is known for being a softie and the moment I saw her as a judge... well, it'd been more of a surprise to eliminate someone. I do agree with the one who did say though that they felt Tyra was waiting to do a double elimination with either the "witches" (Bre and Bianca) or the "Saints" (Lisa, Shannon, someone else) being eliminated.
Bianca is treading on thin ice and it's because of her attitude. She had MJ right, but it wasn't nearly what she can do. I think she's one of the better models there, but she keeps the 'tude up, she'll go before Lisa, who I think is honestly struggling.
As far as Lisa... yeah, it's a jumping shot and people complain it's chosen, but given that it's obvious that it'll be chosen, Lisa really needs to STOP taking shots like that. Even I can tell they're going to use that as a reason for elimination. Personally I felt that had they done an elimination, she'd been ousted over Angelea because it's less Jackson than Angelea's.
In regard to Angelea... she too is on thin ice IMHO. You don't keep doing the extremes or you'll be eliminated. Not that I've been a fan of her work (even her winning photo I think Dominique should've won over), but still... you don't give them reasons to eliminate you.
Laura's photo was perfect MJ. I loved the movement, how again the action made her look tall in spite of being 5'7" or less, and how she got the look. Did have to laugh a little on LaToya's comment in regard to protecting Laura's knees. It was admittedly sincere, but funny that she said it because it looked like Laura was rolling up to stand and not fall on her knees, which means LaToya'd need to worry about Laura rolling an ankle.
Shannon's was an improvement; however, she's still unmemorable. I still maintain a feeling that Tyra might be setting her up to win though because of what happened post cycle 1 with Adrianne.
The rest were quite good, save Alexandra needed only ONE hand doing the pose. The other hand needed to be pulled more to rest palm facing side, bent up at the hip.
Oh, and Kayla's photo shows she's a woman impersonating MJ - her boobs are clearly defined. I think she's not much longer for this show after such an impressive season where Ann won.
