I thoroughly enjoyed the acting thing, very campy but something different. I think what gets me most on here is the very negative comments by judges about being too "commercial." And yet, many of the challenges are commercial (videos, acting, etc.), and some of the prizes are on the commercial line - doing a music video, correspondent for a tv show and yes, contract with Covergirl...whose models are mostly celebrities with great commercial success. As for the couple of "modeling" prizes, IMO you could make a darned goat edgy and high fashion for one photo in a mag. As for the Modeling agencies, I believe I heard Tyra say something like "eligible for" or similar, implying the agencies might not want the winner?
Eh, I loved Alicia's bitchy comments and attitude, sorry to see her go the way she did, esp. when she seemed to think it would let Eboni stay longer. Annalise is my favorite overall, and it sucks everytime Kelly either criticizes everything about her or barely gives credit when it's due. Of the seeming front-runners, I would have to go with Sophie, just because she hasn't seemed so arrogant and witchy as Laura.
