    Watched it. It was boring. And while I was far from being a fan of Alexandria, come on. She was not evil. Sigh. Juvenile. Don't know if I'll keep watching or not.

    I wasn't watching too closely at the end. Didn't they consider the audience opinions in their decision about who won and who got eliminated?

    Brittany got booted off first? Not sure I'll bother watching now. Oh, who am I kidding? Of course I'll watch. Won't stop wincing, though.

    These photos were much better with the grey backdrop we saw as a teaser. By FAR IMHO the worst photoshoot they've done when they clearly photoshopped the models in. Yes, this trick is done in real world, but this was done slipshod.

    Sad Brittany is eliminated though - I missed the first night due to issues at home and wanted to see her in a few rounds. Save possibly Shannon (which is speculation IMHO here), I think the other older cycle models will be eliminated.

    My speculation? I think Shannon will go far because Tyra regrets choosing Adrianne as the first cycle winner after the bad PR caused by it.

    At the end, yes. It is if they are remembered or commented about them. I find it hard to believe that a season 1 person would be remembered and not a season 4. I take that part with a big grain of salt.

    When it came down to Brittney and Alexandria they talked about the audience feedback. People "hated" Alexandria, but most didn't remember/have an opinion about Brittney. So they got rid of Brittney after Tyra commented that "the opposite of love isn't hate, it is indifference".

    I think they should have kept in mind that of course people remember Alexandria more than Brittney, her cycle JUST ended!!!

    I think they said opinion was split on Alexandria, that as many people liked her as didn't like her. I did feel sorry for her when that guy in the audience was cussing and booing her. I think Tyra has been hated as well as loved and might have put a good spin on it because of that.

    IMHO the photo shoot was stupid, as was the live judging. I didn't really enjoy the show much and hope the photo shoot next week will be a lot better.

    I'm still trying to figure out the whole point of a Top Model All-Stars Seriously? If you couldn't make it as a model after the exposure you got the first time, how will a second shot make it any better? And if you do have a career you're making a living at, why run the risk of ruining it by exposing your bad behavior (again?). None of these girls are Naomi Campbell and can afford to get stuck with even more of a negative reputation. As for the girl in season 1...ANTM premiered in 2003, she's 27 now. If she does win, she'll get her photo shoot and prizes....and then do catalog work if she's lucky. "Top Models" do not become "Top" at age 27. And Camille is 33 for goodness sake! Kayla is the youngest at 20, and Allison (one of my all time faves ) is already 23. FYI - I'm no spring chicken, it was tough to write "already 23" I don't know, I suppose if you actually win, it obviously won't hurt and you'll get the prizes and cash, but I wish they wouldn't pretend like this season is anything more than entertainment (even that might be debateable ) and a chance for us to revisit past constestants. This would have been the perfect year for One of Tyra's "green" themes....Reuse and Recycle!

    ETA: And yes, I may be just a touch bitter. I remembered Brittany, and actually liked her way back when Though I also agree with the poster who mentioned the work she has clearly had done!

    I have to chuckle that I liked Nigel with hair and no one else seems to! I thought it was a nice change of pace.

    I watched, but I kept thinking to myself that this season felt even more gimmicky than past seasons. I can tell that this is a show that may be the first to go in favour of some of the other shows on at the same time. Once all shows return/new ones air there will be 4 other shows on at the same time as ANTM.
