What would you do to become
America's Next Top Model? For one, you have to look the part.
Then you have to sacrifice your being to a 24/7 commitment.
More than that, you have to walk the walk and talk the talk.
But most of all, it's a game of

"The Girl with the
Worst Photo in History" - March 23
We start the show with two women knowing that even
though they are still on the show, they have a lot of
work to do. Brandy knows that she needs to keep her
attitude in check, while Brittany knows that she can't
afford to keep looking like a porn star with her mouth
agape looking for flies - or other things.
We start the girls convening over phone time. Brittany
wants to call her boyfriend, so the women decide to make
it fair and go from east coast to west coast, so people
would have a chance to talk before it got too late to
call. Apparently, no one told this to Brandy, who comes
in and said that she called dibs on the phone. After she
gets into it with the girls, Tiffany calls her and
explains that it's this sort of attitude that got her
into trouble. We see flashbacks of Tiffany from last
season, as she says that this isn't the way for Brandy
The women get Tyra Mail, who tell the women that they
have to be ready to be on point. With that, they meet
Stefan wenta short man with a cane, who will give them
instruction on how to use their bodies as an instrument
of expression. He shows the women how to move - and what
he didn't like, he touched them with his cane. Tiffany
and Brandy were both struggling as they went through
After the dance class, the women go out for dinner,
which is a shock for both Tiffany and Brandy. Tiffany
said that she stopped drinking, but maybe a little glass
of wine would be fine. After a few glasses of wine
later, she starts to ramble on how much she loves her
experiences. After a few more glasses of fine wine, she
decides that she wants to get rid of her wine - via her
mouth. She throws up on the floor and Keenyah and
Michele come over to comfort her.
After the dinner, she talks about her child and her
boyfriend to Michele, as she says that she needs to
change her behavior herself to make a better life for
her child. Some of the women, like Michele, understand
where she is coming from, but others wonder if this is
just the old Tiffany coming back to roost...
The next morning, the women come out to the patio and
meet the first African-American supermodel to be on
Vogue in 1974. Her name is Beverly Johnson, and she
talks about her experiences about breaking the color
barrier. She talks about how temperamental that people
are, and not to take criticism personal.
With that, the models go to their shoot. They don't see
Jay, but they get a photographer by the name of Alex
Reznick. What the women don't know is that Jay set them
up - Alex is going to be the biggest a-hole as a
challenge for the women, who are going to be doing a
tennis shoot. The women that deals with the pressure the
Tatiana does ok - but she look like she wants to leave
and breaks into tears afterwards. We then get a montage
of Alex screaming at each of the women. Noelle wants to
slap him, but Naima seemed to handle it, as she was just
nodding her head up and down. Most of the other women
were crying, as they are told to focus.
The next 2 women are the ones that everyone wants to
see. First up...Tiffany, as the women want to see her
smack him with the racket. Alex yells at her for her
attitude, but she keeps it together - though she admits
that she wanted to laugh at him. The other woman -
Brandy. She asks Alex questions and it seems like she is
going to laugh and be more frustrated at the balls (that
she can't hit) than Alex. Alex though gets to her, and
at the ends, she wants to club him with her show. As she
decompresses, Tatiana tries to talk to Brandy. She takes
it as being confrontational and Brandy goes off on her.
Tatiana wonders if she's going to be a threat to
anyone's health and adds that Brandy does not belong
here. So much for the attitude adjustment.
After the shoot, the women go out where Jay lets them
all in on what happened. Alex selects the woman who won
- and it's Naima. She is invited to dinner with a very
special person. Naima gets to invite two of the other
girls to go with her, so she selects Kahlen and Tiffany.
At the restaurant, they see that the guest is...Serena
Williams! She gives Naima an autographed tennis racket
as she talks about being a fashion designer. She gives
the women tips and critiques their walks. Tiffany is
floored and the other two women got a lot out of it.
While they are out eating, the women get more e-mail.
They go to the shoot, where Tyra tells them that the 12
of them will be the signs of the zodiac. They will be
shooting for a calendar that will be released for 2006.
They will be wearing Calvin Klein and will have to work
Some women like the choices better than others - Kahlen
got into Capricorn the goat while Tiffany was wondering
how she could be sexy as Cancer the Crab. Brandy was the
first one done - and sh is complaining about hair and
make-up, adding that they didn't know what they were
doing. Within earshot of Brandy - the same make-up and
hair people. Oops.
Jay was pissed that Noelle wasn't a proud lion, but she
loved Keenyah. Tiffany vows to be a good crab, and Jay
thinks she is beautiful, adding that she has grown from
leaps and bounds. Brandy watches Tatiana struggle, and
Brandy was getting impatient again that she is going
last. I have a feeling I know where this is going...
...but right now, we're going with Tatiana, which Jay
likes. Jay thought that Lluvy struggled a lot with the
harness and he's not thrilled with her photos. Brandy
finally gets to go - and Jay says that the scorpion may
have lost her sting. Tatiana talks to Tiffany that
Brandy threatened her, and word of that conversation
gets back to Brandy, who once again lashes out at
everyone and calls a number of them evil. Well, the
sting of that scorpion is definitely still there...
The women finally calm Brandy down, but not before she
reminds everyone that if they have a problem with her,
they should tell her. Tiffany is very concerned that she
will get booted because of her attitude, and she is
trying to shelter Brandy.
Will that be enough? They see Tyra, and she tells them
that the shoot with Alex (who they detested) will be
their challenge for today. Oops. Michele 0 hate the Alex
shot, love the Zodiac pic. Naima - the like Alex's shot,
but was disappointed with being too much of a ballerina.
Tatiana - not a good Alex shot, but a great Zodiac pic.
Brittany - a huge improvement over last week, and
although she still needs to be graceful, there is no
Playboy in her shot. Brandy - Tyra calls her on her
negative attitude, and while the camera loves her, her
Keenyah - The Alex shot should never bee seen again, bt
the celestial shots are beautiful. Kahlen - Took the
Alex shot too personally, but the Zodiac shot is great.
Christina - Body looks great, but she needs more of a
mouth expression. Noelle - The judges aren't happy that
she is still not conforming to the hairstyle that they
gave her - and they don't like either of her pictures.
Tiffany - She loved the test, because she said that it
tested her attitude, and it showed how much she changed.
They hated the Alex shot - but she nailed the Zodiac
shot. Lluvy - The judges thought that she was blah and
Janice thought the failed miserably. Rebecca - They
welcome her back, but Alex was blah and the photo was
Judges opinions - Tatiana - New but has potential.
Michele - looks like Jay Leno - but she has a spark.
Rebecca - not great, but not awful. Lluvy - According to
Tyra, "This photo is one of the worst photos in the
history of America's Next Top Model." That's not good.
Brittany - progressed nicely. Brandy - Exotic and nice,
but Angry and attitude filled. Naima - Not a good
dancer. Noelle - Still looking for a transformation.
Kahlen - Has model potential. Christina - One of the
best pics, but Beverly wants to see a mouth.
Summing this up -
Diva Power! - Naima, Tiffany, Keenyah
Diva in Training - Brittany, Michelle, Christina,
There's a Diva in somewhere...I think... - Rebecca,
Trouble - Lluvy, Brandy, Noelle
Tyra calls Brittany queen of the galaxy as she is
selected first. After her is Keenyah, Michele, Kahlen
(who is told that the confidence is getting there),
Rebecca, Tatiana, Naima, Tiffany (as Tyra tells her just
how far she has come) and Noelle (Tyra tells her to
listen, adding that it's about transformation). This
leaves Lluvy (with the worst picture of ANTM ever) Vs.
Brandy (with the worst attitude in ANTM4 ever) left. I
think that Brandy has already gotten a second chance -
and she won't be getting a third. I am correct, as
Brandy is the person who is leaving.
The reactions say it all - Lluvy shrugs, Tiffany cries
and Brandy complains that people didn't spend the time
to understand her. The problem is that she didn't give
people enough of a chance as she threatened bodily harm
to almost all of them. That will never work on this
show, and it doesn't, as she gets the boot.
Next week - We have Danger, Disease, Drama, and other
things that start with the letter D. Join us in 7 days
as we see someone else get a d - Dropped.
