Adaora - Not versatile enough. Definate print work, but not right for swimsuit.
Jenna - She has a look for tomorrow, and today. She's a little hoochie in front of the cam, but potentially, i think she's the best.
Betti- thank god they got rid of the hair. Her initial fro was kind of nauseating, but when they straigtened it for the shoot it had a good look to it. I don't know if i've ever seen a fro in SI before, but i've deffinately seen black women w/fro's in many other swimsuit ads and couture shows. Stop complaining, they could have shaved you bald, girl.
Alicia - The bitch card never cuts it in the industry. nuff said.
Sabrina - Biggest mistake of the show, dropping her. IMO, the only one who actually looked like she could be on the cover. what an effing waste.
Nancy - Practically looks the same as Alicia, seems like she knows what she's doing. I'd keep her over Alicia.
Marcela - I give her a F. Her "look" has been SO done. And SI is about the sex appeal, but at the same time, you have to sell a product, don't you? i'm not a woman, but I know if i was, i wouldn't but the 2 piece she's wearing, you can't even see it.
Krisi - Reminds me of a mermaid, haha she's so cute and bubbly. I think the show is set up for her to win... She's deffinately winning America's vote.
Shantel - I think she was a copy of Shannon. You need your token crazy hair brunette, and I think she didn't show enough talent to be THE token brunette. She has a 2'd best is good enough for me! vibe.
Shannon - She looks very Old Hollywood Glamour... and since that look is comming back, I think it would be in their best interest to keep her.
Stacy: Deffinately not the prettiest, but presents a good palette for the make up artists and hair stylists to work with. one of my favouites
Stella: She had the latin thing going for her, i really liked it.
