Entertainment News : Recaps :: ANTM :: May 13, 2009
This is it—the last episode of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 12! Only Teyona, Allison and Aminat remain and after their Cover Girl commercial and shoot, one girl will be eliminated with only the remaining two walking in a Rosa Cha fashion show.
:: Cover Girl Shoot ::McKey, the winner of ANTM cycle 12, is at the Cover Girl shoot to encourage the models and introduce them to the lipstain they’ll be promoting. The big news in the Top Model world this week is that Paulina won’t be returning as a judge for the next cycle. Who’s going to replace her? My guess is Sutan, the zany make-up artist who’s been getting a lot of airtime this season. Sutan preps the girls for the CG shoot and they’re off.
Spark on Set
Aminat performs well but Jay says her forehead looks like Botox-ville—she needs to move her eyebrows when she talks! Allison stumbles over her first take but recovers nicely and the words seem to roll off her tongue. Teyona has a breakdown when her nerves get the best of her and she can’t remember her script. Jay says that despite a poor performance, she still brought a spark to the set.
After the photo shoot, the three girls stand before the judging panel to determine which two will compete in the final runway show. The commercials are shown and Allison’s is best—her photo is called first so it’s between Teyona and Aminat. Teyona’s photo was beautiful but her performance in the commercial was lackluster whereas Aminat’s commercial was great but her photo was wah wah. In the end it’s Aminat who goes home—the judges say she still needs to work on the fierceness in her face.
Rosa Cha Runway
Teyona and Allison shoot their photos for Seventeen magazine (the winner gets a full spread in the mag) then gear up for a whirlwind runway show for Rosa Cha. This show is all swimsuit attire so the girls need to walk with confidence and fierce Brazilian stomps. In the past, Teyona has excelled at runway and Allison has been a bug-eyed mess, but both girls burned it up, especially during the samba dancing and live-art-installation components.
America's Next Top Model is...
At the final judging panel, the models get to run through all of their past photos. Allison seems to be ahead but the judges think Teyona wants it more. Both girls have gone through a huge transformation, but in the end, the judges think one girl deserves to win more than the other. Teyona and Allison line up, still in their Rosa Cha bikinis and wait for the verdict. Tyra flips over the last photo and the winner is…TEYONA! Congrats to both girls for putting on an awesome show—I can’t wait for Cycle 13!
