The usual crop gals arrived, and the weirdest part was realizing that when they said they "grew up watching this show" they weren't kidding - the youngest contestant was five years old when ANTM premiered. Kiss your youth goodbye y'all.
Anyhoo, the contestants go off on go sees and it is pretty clear that despite some tragic walks, there is potential here. Back at the house (-? apartment? sound stage? it's a blur) there is some heavy flirting between Kyle and a not-quite-5' 7" mall pretty who will clearly not make it past the next step. She doesn't. There are tears.
We've got twins this season, a-la cycle 7. They both make it on. We get some drama between Courtney (Larry Hagman's brows reincarnated) and another contestant, cause this is reality tv and that needs to happen, but they patch it up before the other girl is cut anyway.
In classic ANTM fashion, the girls are cut in the most humiliating way possible - bounced out of a club line and left standing on the street crying. It's a little harsh, but it reminds us of the place this show comes from - pure spectacle. How I've missed this trash.
Girl is straight up stunning. She did great in the go sees.
Her outfits were a bit much™ and she was a bit ott. Despite that and questionable lip fillers, the judges seemed to like her.
One of the twins. I couldn't tell you much about her separate from her sister because the show had them do everything, including go-sees and judges panel, as a duo.
The daughter of model Stephanie Roberts
I'd say something about those brows but another contestant did and she cried so I will leave well enough alone.
Classic ANTM small town girl in the big city, very charming
Gigi Hadid-lite has had some previous modeling experience abroad
Girl can rock a tube top. Didn't tell her family she was doing the show.
Something something 50k instagram followers, something something 'the sexy one'
Kyle is more attractive and entertaining than this photo would lead you to believe
The youngest gal here. Judges advised her to tone down the makeup moving forward
???? ????????? i literally remember nothing about her
The other twin
Gorgeous and can hustle. She mentioned the name of her company like 5 times (Tyra would be so proud)
What makeovers do y'all want to see? Do you think they will be as tragic as past years on UPN/CW?
