    I don't think Yaya is owning Eva. Eva is still a name that everyone knows and yaya had a failed movie and an olay ad thats pretty old already. Eva is getting a lot of work as a TV personality. She isn't doing too much modeling anymore, but she has way more star power than yaya and more staying power than most of the other winners!
    Yaya is still very pretty, but she isn't doing anything that is going to keep her working in the future.

    It's funny, i don't even remember Eva doing the life as a cover girl commercials)probably the only commercial she's ever done).

    If you're gonna mention a "failed movie," you have to mention that Eva also did a movie that didn't even make the top 10 at the box office when it premiered. I forget what it's called. At least Yaya's movie (Take the Lead) premiered at #3 (at least that's what I remember).

    But you're right. Eva has been successful in her own right. Eva & Yaya together definitely beat every other final 2 IMO.


    ETA: I looked up the movie I was talking about, and the movie that Eva was in was Crossover.

    I know she was in "I think I love my wife," but I didn't see it (lol). I think she had a small role though. Yeah, those 2 seem to be doing better than all the others top 2s! The others have had success, but these two are still BOTH in the public eye!

    The only real success Eva's had was appearing in various sitcoms that wer all canceled eventually. Yaya's 1 commercial trumps Eva's entire career. Yaya not only has her beauty (which is more than I can say for Eva), but Yaya also has a godd head on her shoulders, so she does have soemthing to hold her for the future. Once again, more than I can say for Eva. Another thing that hasn't been mentioned is the fact that Eva is only 5'6.5, and looks like a cross between a pig and a gremlin. The only reason why anyone knows Eva's name is because she won.

    Well, would Yaya be as recognizable as Eva if she had won? Probably not! Eva just has IT (as cheesy as that sounds) and that is why she is successful. I also think that most people think that Eva is beautiful! She may not be a model's height, but neither is yaya! That is why they aren't really pursuing higher fashion!

    If you had a fashion show, would you rather hire a model who is 5'8 or 5'6?

    Um, I doubt it. Anyway, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so you can say that if you want, but I thought "It" when it comes to models is being tall, thin, and photogenic. To me, Eva has none of those qualities, but whatever. ANTM girls who do have it are Elyse, Shandi, Kahlen, Nik, Dani, Amanda+Michelle, Britanny, Samantha, Lisa, Heather, and Jenah.

    "It's actually a pretty common name in West Africa."

    God, this girl was so self-inflated back then! I still love her though and am glad she's finding work.

    Well, I wasn't referring to what "it" is in modeling. I'm saying that Eva has what America wants to see in a public figure, muse, host, and tv personality. Yaya is a pretty face and there are thousands of those out there. She is easily replaced. But people are saying "I want Eva and no one else will do." She is branding herself! I hope yaya does get a lot of work because she is very beautiful. But she isn't building a career for her future.

    Well, actually, we don't know the answer to that one and never will to the point where it's irrelevant.
