We didn't see much, but from what we saw Yaya is classy, articulate and charming. It is such a relief to see an African American woman who comes across this way. I'm really getting tired of the idea that beautiful intelligent African American women are the "b*tch of the house." Do we need another Omarossa or Camille? I would take ten Yaya's (forehead acne and all) over them!!!! Go Yaya!

Na Yaya seems like the nice/sweet girl of this house this cycle

Isn't that weird? She's the daughter of an African priest and yet she wants to be a model. I wonder how her dad feels about that. It doesn't seem like he cares, because she never talked about her family not wanting her to model. I guess her parents are not as strict as mine. If your family doesn't support you, I'll be your support yaya.

I like Yaya, alot.
But I just don't think she has "it" now from seeing her in the first episode. The skin is way worse than Ebony's was - and they gave her so much crap for that.
I think Yaya will last about midway through.

Yes, she does. She seems very sweet!

Yaya could win. She has amazing eyes, and if they do any competitions that involve speaking, she has a nice voice, almost musical (Amanda's got a nice voice too).
About the skin, lots of models have bad skin, from all the makeup and everything. She could just go to a derm and be improved enough that she can model. I was mad when they gave Ebony so much crap about that. Send the girls who need it to a dermatologist with some of that makeover money!

I hope that you are all right and her skin will clear up (assuming that the judges keep her around long enough for that to happen.) For the most part, Ya Ya photographs well, and seems to have a great personality. I just don't know if that will be enough to outweigh her skin condition and (lack of) height..
