    I loved it when I first read it -- loved it twice as much when I (just) read it again here -- and love that it was selected as post of the week.

    Let's get rid of Joe Don and make Omar Captain, mates.

    Congratulations !

    The season may be over, but America's Next Top Model is still attracting great members, including gmstjs, who's the this week's recipient of the Post of the Week!

    Quote Originally Posted by gmstjs
    It is redundant for ANTM to try find a girl whose look is 'in'. For one thing, what's in demand is constantly changing. As soon as something becomes popular, everyone is sick of it five minutes later. Then it becomes all about trying to find the next big thing - someone whose look is new and 'cutting edge'. The models who have successful, long-term careers are the ones who can change with the times or the ones who have made a name for themselves so that they don't have to follow the trends.

    If a new model's appearance falls in line with the status quo that is currently popular, then she isn't going to stand out from the crowd. But if a new model's look isn't fashionable at the moment, she isn't going to get a lot of jobs. (Imagine someone like Christie Brinkley trying to start her career in the waif/heroin chic era.) It's quite the catch-22 and I think it is one of the reasons it is so hard to really make it in the modeling industry.

    If Tyra really is getting behind Jaslene and pushing her career, then it is because she believes that Jaslene has a passion for modeling and the drive and ambition to kick the door down if it is slammed in her face.

    IMO, what makes Jaslene unique from any other ANTM winner has nothing to do with her looks, height, weight, walk, or how well she photographs. I think she's great, she is my favorite winner. But compared to the others it's easy to say - Yoanna has a prettier face, Caridee is taller, Eva has more attitude, Danielle has a better body, Naima's looks are more unusual and ethnic, Nicole is younger and more conventionally 'modelesque'. But I think Jaslene has more perserverance than all of them put together, and I think that is what makes her special and sets her apart. jmho.
