    I can only hope that Brittany wins! Yoanna wasn't poor, but she was the "fat girl" for quite some time. Even after she won, she had to work on her muscle tone to fit into the modeling world. So there's a cinderella story right there!

    I dont think they necessarily pick the girl who had a rough background, but I do think the definitely pick someone who has more of a story/personality that viewers can identify with. Thats pretty much...a given.

    Don't forget 'The Starlet' - another po' girl done good.

    I've always thought the judges wanted Shandi to win - the fact they kept her despite having a walk 1,000 times worse than, say, Sarah's, kinda suggests that. But she never had much charisma - that and the infidelity pretty much made sure she couldn't win.

    I do think they pick the girl who has "transformed" the most... at least so far....

    Still doesn't quite work. At the heart of every Cinderella story is a transformation that takes place right in front of our eyes. Yoanna was a fat girl, yes, but her transformation took place pre-show, off-camera. So shandi, by all rights of that archetypal plotline, should have won.

    ETA: Sorry, forgot to add this is is response to Erin's post.

    I know what you mean. I was just providing Yoanna's background, not really arguing for the Cinderella story plotline. Of the girls left in the competition, I think Michelle has a plotline (self-conscious to thinking she is beautiful), but the other girls are somewhat lacking. And I find it suspicious that what we know about Naima came from the first episode, since she's the season favorite (with Kahlen catching up quickly!). Hmmm....

    I think that Brittany might be the winner, just because they have shown her tranforming. In her first two shoots, she was "porno." Now she has been taking really good shots. Add that to her drinking problem, and I think she might win.

    I wish they would just pick the best model though...

    I agree about Eva and Yoanna, but Adrienne?

    Ironically, this bipolar-bisexual girl does.

    I thought she said that people used to step on her mother as if she was a Welcome Mat.

    Well, for people who are arguing against it, I dont think they will allow someone to win JUST for a story. Like this season-I think Michelle has the best "story" but she is really, really lacking in other areas.
    They pushed Yoanna's story as much as Shandi's...at least I think. I remember them doing spots about how she used to be fat and used to feel so ugly and how fashion was her dream and etc...
    It was like watching the end of a dream come true.
    You can be penalized for not having a story...or a "likeable personality"
    In my opinion (feel free to disagree) Elyse from season 1 should have won. But there was little to no story and the judges thought she was snobby. Nicole from season 3-I think she should have gone further, but once again, she was penalized for not having some sort of story/bubbly personality.
    I firmly believe the only reason Eva won was because she had the personality and story/transformation that the judges look for.

    This season seems tougher...the editing and "story" seem to be going to Michelle, but I think she will be a Shandi. Go far, but have certain things that hold her back from the main prize. Christina will be a Nicole-amazing photos, but penalized storywise.
    Naima does not have a story really and I honestly do not think she will win. Right now I think it is Kahlen's prize to lose...with Brittany as a dark horse.

    And time will tell if I am incorrect.
