Krista Marne White Wins America's Next Top Model Cycle 14
Krista Marne White Has Been Crowned America's Next Top Model for Cycle 14
Following is a edited review of our full review of Episode 10 of ANTM.
The Episode Begins;
The final four get back to the house and marvel at how they all made it to the final four. Krista says she does not want to go back to being a store manager and she really wants to win. So does Alexandra, who knows that as a plus-sized model she has an even more uphill battle. Seems like the other three are hating on Raina a bit though for being immature and think she is getting annoying.
Later on Andre Leon Talley visits, then the girls get a message from Tyra that they are leaving and need to pack an overnight bag. They find out they are going to Queenstown to photograph with the diverse terrain. Miss Jay turns out to be on the plane however and to the delight of everyone else on the plane I'm sure, the girls have to perform a challenge! Eek! The girls are so unprepared for it.
The girls have to bring their personality to the runway walk so hopefully Angelea will do that crazy club walk that she did at panel a few weeks ago. Angelea then reveals that she brought one heel with her and Krista flips out and says she wants to punch Angelea in the throat (on the individual camera don't worry), but still... wow, harsh.
All the girls walk and then we find out the winner is Krista. I thought Alexandra was going to win actually. Poor Alexandra she looks like she's going to cry. :(
The girls arrive in Queenstown and as Raina says 'it is so Lord of the Rings'.
It's not great weather though, but the girls find out that for their photo shoot, the scenery will be pretty and the girls will be ugly.
The girls get all 'ugly-ed' up and boy do they ever! It's a lot of black make-up and black lipstick and some 18th century / modern clothes. The clothes are kind of cool actually.
Krista seems to do the best on her shoot.
The girls get to judging panel.
Raina is up for judging first and her photo is actually 'ugly-pretty', and her eyes look really great and intense. Tyra says that she did not do enough to break out of her box though.
Angelea is up next and her photo looks like she is really scared of something. Tyra likes it, but most of the other judges do not.
Krista is third and the judges fawn over her for a second and then show her picture, which of course is fabulous. Andre Leon Talley even seems like he's going to cry about her photo.. wow. I think we can end the show right now. Let's just call it a day.
Alexandra has to follow that critique (poor girl) and the judges do not fawn over hers in the same way, but it is a good photo and she did a good job.
The final two are:
Now it's the second half!
The girls get Tyra Mail and find out they are leaving again and Raina observes that she does not think Krista likes her (um, yeah no kidding).
Krista is ready to shoot her commercial and her first take is very stiff and uncomfortable, poor girl! She gets really nervous, I feel bad for her.
She gets to take 7 and requests the cue cards, which is apparently the kiss of death in commercials. She holds it together though and does a good job.It's good she can laugh it off. She then gets her still photo done and it is very pretty when she smiles.
Raina's commercial starts off in kind of the same way that Krista's did and she starts losing the lines as well. She is a bit fake, but once she settles in to her lines she does a better job, although Jay does not seem as impressed with her.
The girls then do their Seventeen cover shoot, and get back to their house where they find Tyra standing in their living room saying she wants to do a family portrait with them.
Then she reveals that the girl's families are here and there is a touching moment of renunion, it brought tears to my eyes. Tyra is taking the pictures of their family and Krista's family is beautiful and their photos are amazing! Wow! We can see where Krista gets it from. Raina's dad is so adorable as well and they look really great together.
The parents then have to leave and it is an emotional goodbye, but a nice moment for ANTM.
Now it's back to work though as the girls arrive for the Anna Sui runway show. Alasia, Jessica, Alexandra and Angelea are coming back for the fashion show too! Fun!
Angelea is clearly on 'Team Krista', Jessica is on 'Team Raina' and the girls get ready to strut their stuff. The clothes are adorable by the way, so cute. The show is really cool too, with a circus theme and funky music.
Krista has a good walk and she's more bouncy than normal. Raina's walk is not as bouncy and is slower but it's good and she' smiling a lot too. Then it's a quick change and they are out on the runway again, but this time with a partner and Krista and Raina have to walk together. They do well together, although I'm still not sure about Raina's walk.
The judges deliberate now and it seems like it is a really hard decision. They think Raina is better for photos than runway and Krista would be good for both.
Eek! It's time to announce the winner!
