    Vanity thy name is Tyra. Is Tyra so jealous of her ANTM offspring that she feels the need to outshine them by appearing on the winner's cover of ElleGirl magazine? That is a magazine that suprisingly I am not familiar with. However I would be more impressed if the winner (sans Tyra) appeared on the cover of SnowflakeGirl magazine. That would show that the winner was a STAR, because any product bearing the Snowflake marquee is nothing but the best.
    "We all shine on, like the moon and the sun and the stars". Well, SnowflakeGirl anyway - Bre, Nic, Nicole and me, not so much. This recap was a bittersweet read for me, knowing that it was the last SNG recap for a while. Fortunately I was laughing so hard that it took me a long time to read.
    (By the way, how did they manage to get Nicole to recite Shakespeare?) I'd like to give you more feedback as to what made laugh, so that you can keep it in mind for the next time, but there was something in every paragraph, so as I looked for something to quote I kept seeing more things that I could not leave out. I guess I would be totally useless to include in a focus group.
    Sadly, for those of us who will miss the recaps if not show we have come to the end. I feel that you and all your SFG fans should sing Auld Lang Syne together. I would start, but whenever I start to sing all the dogs in the neighbourhood start howling. So you sing, and I'll just lip sync.
    Thanks for another great season of ANTM recaps.

    Oh, there is nothing on Earth like a SnowflakeGirl recap. I teared up as I neared the end, knowing we would soon be in a dry spell. You are so gifted. Thanks for all the belly laughs this season!

    That's what I initially thought, but I think the idea behind that was the fact that Tyra is a celebrity, and people who may not recognize Nicole (usually there are celebs on the cover) will see Tyra there and immediately put two and two together. Marketing strategy, although I'd rather not have Tyra on there either.

    Why are you guys so envious and Tyra. Just because she's doing a cover shoot with the winner, she always does photoshoots with the winner anyway. What's the big deal. Plus I love Tyra, my favourite top model ever.

    great review!

    When Tyra asked "who should be ANTM?," I wonder who on the panel pointed to Nik and who pointed to Nicole.

    As Nicole goes up to accept the picture that is her golden ticket to the final round, Bre slowly starts to de-evolve before our very eyes. She takes off her high heeled shoes (emphasizing her shortness), she puts on her glasses, her face falls into a scowl, she morphs into a single-celled organism…It’s the confident beauty regressing back into the lowly, insecure nerd, like watching She’s All That in reverse.
    When I read this I was laughing so hard I could barely breathe. Pure brilliance!

    "Which of these worthy candidates (and Bre) will win all"


    "“Do you guys know why you’re here today?” Why do they always insist on talking to these girls as if they have anterograde amnesia after every episode?"

    - Seriously, come on Jay, pick up a new line already!

    "Nicole is not worried at all, feeling since she did so well the last time, she’ll surely ace it again. Per strict reality TV rules, this can only mean one thing: the very opposite is bound to happen."

    - yes, very predictable!!! poor Nicole

    "Bre has trouble trying to look genuine and unforced the entire time and tries to think of funny things: like pouring Red Bull down the drain, going aggro on your loyal lesbian friend, not bathing due to sheer laziness."

    - oh Bre, bre, bre

    "Nik, by curling up into a ball on the sofa and hugging her arms to herself in a classic defensive posture. Way to show more personality, Nik! "

    - that's when i realized Nik wasn't going to win!

    " of course, and in addition to the usual coterie of real, working models (i.e. 12-year-old meth addicts from Romania), they will also be sharing the catwalk with former ANTM winners, Eva Porkford and Naima Snore-a"

    -LOL

    "In their Bride of Frankenstein hair and makeup, the girls meet with Tyra (sporting a cute, retro-40s style coif) for some one-on-one’s, during which the girls are contractually obligated to cry. Why Tyra decided to have the crying bits after the girls went through hair and makeup is anyone’s guess. I hope that makeup is waterproof, and it’s probably not CoverGirl otherwise we’d have heard all about it from Jay by now."

    - LOLOL Very good one!!!
