America's Next Top Model - Cycle 17

America’s Next Top Model – Cycle 17 – Episode 4 (CSI to Express!)

Episode aired:  10/05/2011

During the girls downtime at the house, Kayla was feeling a bit of anxiety and took a combination of pills which made her start to vomit and get a racing heart beat.  Bianca, Bre’ and Allison came to the rescue and Bianca alerted the producers.  Kayla was rushed to the hospital with Laura by her side.  Kayla and Laura returned back to the house and announced that she had Cardiac Arrhythmia which is caused by fatigue, weakness and stress among other things.  I’m glad that Kayla is okay and was able to return to the show.

Later in the house the girls were having drinks.  It was wonderful to see that Lisa chose not to drink with the girls without going to seclude herself.  Lisa is a former alcoholic and was a member of the cast on a season of Celebrity Rehab, therefore, she did not drink.  Despite her brand wild girl, she resisted the alcohol….Bravo to Lisa!

The girls went to see what their challenge was and were excited to meet Anthony E. Zuiker, the Creative and Executive Producer of the CSI Franchise.  The Models auditioned for a chance to be an intern Marley Territo, on an Episode of the 2011 fall season.  Angelea’s confidence was bold, she said “I sing, I act, I model, fans love me, anybody love me, I look good.”  Gotta love her because she knew she had this audition in the bag.  As a matter of fact, she nailed her audition with compliments from Anthony himself.  Lisa bombed in her audition.  It didn’t seem like she eve studies the lines and she was full of excuses.  It seems that Lisa wants all of the attention when she feels she is shining and going overboard, but when she knows she screwed up she is full of excuses.  A lot of the other girls bombed as well, however, Bre’ shined and was very believable in her audition.  I must say I give them credit because the lines they had to memorize including gas chroatograph mass-spectrometer, barbituarates, methamphetamine, and hydrocodone were very tough.  The winner of the audition was Bre’ and Angelea was pissed.  Angelea has no reason to be disappointed because she shined as well.  She never knows, some director may watch this episode and give her a call.

On the photo shoot for Express where Lisa Gavales (Chief Marketing Officer of Express) was on hand to oversee the photo shoot with Mr. Jay.  The girls had four options of portraying either Girlfriend, Flirt, Cool Chick or Socialite.  They were also joined in the shoot with Models Josh, David, and Sean which was a pleasant perk for the Models.  Angelea rocked her photo shoot as a Socialite.  I love Bianca but has a bad habit of breaking the other Models down to make herself look good.  She told Mr. Jay “Out of all those girls, I’m the Model”.  However, in commentary, Mr. Jay says he hasn’t seen a Model so far this season, he was frustrated with Bianca’s photo shoot performance.  Dominique continued in commentary, by calling Bianca ignorant for her statement.  I was hoping that Camille was not washed out because she was clumsy almost falling down the stairs and not believable as a Socialite in her shoot.  Camille was also having her own doubts because she felt because she was 33 years old and older than a lot of the girls her chances of winning were dwindling.  Camille didn’t “bring it” in her shoot and she knew it as she teared up during commentary on her lack of confidence.  It was heartbreaking to watch.  Lisa was jumping around trying to get action shots in her photo shoot, and I agreed with Angelea when she said “It was painful to watch”.  She blamed her bad shoot on the guys not having any energy because they were hungry.  Kayla did do well in the photo shoot, but she should know by now the “sick card” doesn’t get you advanced on ANTM.  I’m glad she is okay but I hope she buries the “sick card”.

During panel, that included guest Judge Anthony E, Zuiker, Tyra thought Angelea rocked her photo shoot and Andrea and Nigel loved it as well.  Lisa made excuses for her lack of energy, blaming anybody but herself and the judges didn’t buy it and told her she should have taken control of her shoot.  Lisa had a bad day and it happens, own it and move one!  I’m wondering when is someone going to call Laura’s grandmother, Wanda Sue and give her a fashion line.  She does a fantastic job on making Laura’s clothes.  I haven’t seen one of Laura’s outfits yet, that I don’t like.  Angelea had an all around good episode, she rocker her audition and nailed her photo shoot.  Way to go Angelea!  Lisa and Camille were the bottom two  the judges thought Lisa was that daring girl who a lot of people would say is out of control, but the judges feel that Lisa had left the building and her Cousin “Excuses Monster” came in.  with Tyra said, Camille is in control but the excuse that she almost fell during her shoot that made her become the background in the picture.  The judges need to see more of the star she is in person.  Camille was eliminated and this Cycle she left like a lady and not that “I don’t care attitude” she left with in her original cycle.  She also got hugs from all of the girls which she didn’t in her original cycle, which shows how she has grown as a women.  The deal breaker for me was Bianca hugged Camille as well, which was surprising because in the first episode, Bianca said Camille couldn’t hug her on no day.  So that means Bianca is either maturing or making it look good for the judges.  I salute Bianca for being a lady also.
