One of the top shows in reality television is back with yet another season. The ratings went through the roof as America tuned in to watch the first episode of America’s Next Top Model which has become the new must see soap opera. 35 aspiring models compete for a modeling contract with Ford Models Management and the opportunity to be the next Cover Girl spokes model.With the success of season three and the dawn of a new super star, Miss Eva “Diva,” the winner from last season; Tyra Banks is on a quest again for the next America’s Top Model. The first episode even included some of last season’s finalist returning for another chance to compete for a modeling contract. Tiffany, the feisty hot girl from Miami, who in last season was eliminated for participating in a bar fight. Tiffany convinced the judges she has cleaned up her act and is ready to compete for America’s Next Top Model. Brandy, a plus size model who was also eliminated in season three, made a come back this season ready to put plus size models on the map. The season starts off in Los Angeles, where the ladies have a “meet and greet” with Banks and the panel judges. The finalists are interviewed so the judges have an insight on their individuality. During the interview the finalists change in to something a little more comfortable to the eye. The panel is wowed with a lingerie walk off, just to see who has the body and the strut. No, this isn’t America’s Next Beauty Pageant. These ladies need to have a great body as well as a great personality. With hard deliberation the judges narrowed it down to 20 finalists, which mean 15 of the finalists were sent packing. It wasn’t long before the rest of the ladies were introduced to the next challenge. To test to see who is photogenic, the ladies are opted to take pictures in a mini photo booth. Some did well, and others came back with mug shots. The judges made another deliberation and the final six girls were cut, leaving the top 14. The excited 14 celebrated with hugs and sighs of relief as they received news that they would be competing there in Los Angeles, while living in a beautiful loft. In the second episode the ladies got a taste of Hollywood life. They endure their first professional photo shoot where they are turned into beautiful aliens. The photo shoot was a success despite the on-going complaints by finalist Brandy, who complained the day was too long. This did not please the panel, photographer, or Banks and was taken into consideration for the next deliberation. Continuing the episode all the ladies were made over. The hair stylist and makeup artist gave the ladies different but great looks for their same day photo shoot. “Pain is beauty” was the motto for the day as the ladies found that being beautiful was not easy. Brandy and Keenyah, two of the finalist, nagged the stylist about their new hairstyles which put them on Bank’s bad list. Banks confronts Brandy and Keenyah and informs them she is not pleased with their complaining. She points out it will be taken into consideration during the next deliberation. The next day the eliminations began and their photos were evaluated. When it came down to it, it was between Brita and Brandy. Banks explained that see did not like Brandy’s attitude and it was something she seriously needed to work on. Banks went on to say that Brita was a beautiful girl but her photo just did not show it. “In person you are great but your photos did not reflect it well, you are eliminated,” Banks announced. Brita was sent home and Brandy was told by Banks to fix her attitude. Also letting her know it was her picture that saved her. Brandy, Brittany, Christina, Kaylen, Keenyah, Lluvy, Michelle, Naima, Noelle, Rebecca, Sarah, Tatiana and Tiffany all go on to compete for America’s Next Top Model.
