America's Next Top Model - Cycle 13 Episode 11 Review (S013EP11)
Cycle 13 Episode11 of America's Next Top Model 'Hawaiian Hip Hop' aired tonight on the CW Network at 8pm PST.
Previously on ANTM, only girls over 5ft 7 were accepted to be a top model, but this cycle Tyra is giving shorter girls a chance by allowing models under 5 ft 7 to take part, and potentially follow in the footsteps of Top Model Kate Moss.
If you want to catch up on any ANTM news, see our channel.
The episode begins:
Erin is being a lot nicer to the other girls and not nearly as cocky (probably because she feels like crap after being in the bottom two so many times in a row... no kidding).
The girls discuss what it is like to be in the final four and they are clearly excited, but pretty nervous - Erin should be nervous I think.
Nicole says that she sees herself in the final two with Jen and talks about how Erin is too wrapped up in what people think about her. Jen gloats over her picture and says how she usually gives up quickly, while Laura again talks about castrating bulls at home. She is sweet though, talking about how she wants to prove to her siblings that they can be successful and she wants to provide for her family.
It's time for another challenge though and the girls get to learn some traditional Hawaiian dance infused with Hip Hop.
Nicole is understandably nervous as she is a terrible dancer (remember the Benny Ninja challenge?)
The woman who talks about the 'hula hip hop' is literally robotic! Maybe she is just nervous...
Unfortunately Erin gains back her confidence with the dancing as she has a dance and cheerleading background and thinks this gives her the right to boss everyone around.
The girls must dance the moves they learned and tell their story and the best one will win the challenge. This does sound like a hard challenge though. Erin is annoying with her cheerleading guidelines all the time, although I suppose it's nice that she offered to help.
Miss Jay shows up to judge the challenge and tells them about the fabulous prize.
Jennifer starts off quite bad but she does add lots of emotion and you can understand her story.
Erin knows the moves, but is quite stiff and I can't tell what she is trying to do.
Laura, despite being super nervous, is actually pretty good. I laughed when Jen said that 'Laura must get freaky at a club'.
Nicole is really awful, she can't dance at all. She is like a little mini robot. Erin totally makes fun of her though.
The winner, who gets a trip to Maui after the competition ends, is Laura! She chooses Jennifer as her friend to come with her - Erin is super mad about it. She clearly thinks she should have won, atlhough no one else does. Erin thought that because she was so helpful she should have won the challenge.
Next comes the shoot, where the girls get to dress up as cool Hawaiian goddesses of the volcanoes and they get to have their shoot on top of the rock with the waves crashing around them.
However, Jay shocks everyone when he tells them that two girls will be going home tonight! (Has this ever happened in ANTM history??)
So that means there will only be a final two next week and not a final three like usual. Jen is so shocked her mouth is hanging open. Erin knows she needs a 'kick ass' photo shoot.
The girls now have to do the shoot and time the crashing of the waves behind them.
Jennifer has some trouble finding her footing but she gets it eventually. She has a good idea at first but she needed to bring it out a bit more.
Nicole naturally looks amazing (I think she's going to win). She has the right mindset though when it comes to competition.
Laura (who is my fav) doesn't do as well as normal and Jay asks her if she was drinking last night! She normally does way better than that. Her face is really tense at the beginning. Nicole says that Laura is not 'high fashion' and that she doesn't insprire the photographers.
Erin looks ok, but her face is too hard. She sings in her head and she actually does a nice job. I love how she said she sings in her head 'one of those pop songs that those teenagers listen to' when she is 18 herself! She then comes off the set and hits her head on the light poor thing.
All the girls are so nervous for panel tomorrow. Jen is worried and Erin is scared and Laura looks like she's going to cry. The only one who seems confident is Nicole, and she pretty much knows that she's through already.
It's judging time!
Ann Shoket is the guest judge this week and the girls look nervous - I am kind of nervous!!
Erin is 'glowing' apparently in her photo (it is ok I guess). Tyra said that she looked a bit sleepy.
Jennifer looks pretty but her face is looking kind of weird. Her mouth open looks a bit off for this pose.
Laura's photo is good, but a bit too 'swimsuit issue' for everyones' liking. Tyra says she looks a lot like Rachel Hunter.
Nicole's picture doesn't look as good as I thought it would, but of course the judges love it (I'm sure she's going to win)
The judges clearly don't like Erin in their description of her during panel as they deliberate, as Nigel calls her disengenous. They seem to like all the girls though and it is kind of a tough decision.
The finalists to be America's Next Top Model are:
1. Nicole (as if we didn't know)
Erin and Jennifer are sent home; I feel kind of sad about Jennifer, as I'm not sure Laura actually has what it takes to win, even though she is my favourite. Erin took good pictures but her attitude let her down. Amazing how far a good attitude can take you.
Erin is really upset at herself and her pictures were really good.
Jennifer is sad too, but she is not as upset.
Next week's finale should be good - exciting things to come! Stay tuned!
