I modeled when I was in college. It was just a fluke, I happened to be interning for an ad agency in Chicago and when the model that was booked for a shoot didn't show one of the art directors grabbed me to be a stand in. Anyway, I did model for a while, roomed with a model and hung out with photographers and creative types. Anyway, Miss Tyra's comment about her and Heidi Klum et al intelligence really gave me a giggle. Because Elyse was totally correct, there is scientific research about the formula of beauty. I forget exactly who was used as examples; I think Halle Berry, Salma Hayek and someone else but the mathematical formula used determined that it worked for women of all nationalities. Tyra Banks is famous, beautiful, rich and successful. But she seemed rankled by the fact that she just isn't as smart as Elyse.
I like Elyse and Adrienne, they seemed the most genuine of all the contestants; although Shannon really was sweet at the end. Adrienne won the contracts but I think many of these girls will benefit from their appearance on ANTM.
