Release the other Cycles on DVD!!! What's the hold up, I don't get it.
America's Next Top Model reveals the complex decisions, responsibilities and intellectual challenges models face on a daily basis. Not only are contestants required to navigate the streets of Paris, two even participate in a major fashion show.
The most exciting part of the show is definitely the challenges the contestants face. The desire to overcome all obstacles seems to be the key to traversing the distance between obscurity to fame.
During each show, a panel of fashion experts decides on who will be cut from the show. Dreams are dashed as beautiful women show weaknesses and character flaws.
The bikini wax session was a little much but did show what women have to endure for beauty. The models then endure cold temperatures to model swimsuits on a rooftop. While this does show endurance, it made me wonder why they didn't fly these girls to a warmer location for a weekend.
The physical stress was something I had never considered. The photo shoots were often very energetic and you can see why models need to be young. Robin is the oldest model and seems to play the roll of mom more than model for the most part. Her religious beliefs create an interesting interplay between Elyse and Adrianne who then become friends when Robin becomes a little too controlling. Elyse made me laugh quite a bit with her witty naughtiness and my heart went out to Adrianne who wanted to win like it was life itself and survives food poisoning. Fortunately they get to live it up in Paris later and Adrianne's amazing strength pays off.
Robin ends up in a Garden of Eden type setting (complete with a snake) and also has to make decisions about nude photo shoots.Read more ›

I like this cycle. There's good drama, and it's interesting to look back at where it all began. It's not 5 stars because it's pretty short, and the setup is kind of primitive. Read morePublished 13 months ago by AWOL
