I think the right person went this week.

From watching the comeback series, I can safely say Mike (tyras prodigy) wont be voted back in

I think Phil got an artificially high score from the judges this week to save him. I know Kanani screwed up this week, but had a lot more potential than him which should have saved her. Two of the strongest girls have gone two weeks in a row now.

Jeremy going was obvious though.

This episode was all about drama drama drama.
The Chris H and Nina fallout was sad but I noticed when the Tyra Mail before judging came on screen she was climbing over him for some strange reason, despite the fact she's supposed to be ignoring him. lol

I thought many of the pics were strong.
My scoring:
10 - Nina, Cory
9 - Marvin, Chris H, Jourdan
8 - Jeremy, Jiana, Phil
7 - Don
6 - Renee, Kanani

Alot of times I don't agree with the judges scoring and suspect they may be trying to negate the fan score, but sometimes I think it can be necessary because the fan score is rather strange sometimes. Like Chris H's has been low the past couple of weeks despite him doing quite well and is probably the only guy that always looks like a model.

I was glad Phil survived because he's so interesting. Whereas Kanani was featured so little and she looks really short. And Jeremy reeked of inexperience in everything he did and tended to look like a stripper in his pics.
Next out I hope is Don or Marvin, though I think Renee is lucky to have got this far without any appearance in the bottom two while someone as strong as Jiana is there sh*tting bricks in judging.

I'm so sick of all the drama in this series.
It's bad enough having to constantly watch the who fancies who stuff and the boys juvenile pranks whilst the models are at the house but now it's happening on the photoshoots too.
I found it contrived that Jeremy, Nina and Chris all blamed poor performances in the photoshoot on off set dramas. However Kanani's excuse was the worst one yet! I have every sympathy for people with phobias since I have several myself but what has a prank played on someone the night before got to do with the next days photoshoot? Or maybe the producers just told her to say that (and Jeremy, Nina ad Chris too) to make the juvenile house antics seem more relevant to the actual modelling.

I still don't see the point in these 'flixel' things but at least we finally got to see the models pose separately. I was getting bored with constant group shots.

'Pot Ledom' reared it's ugly head again. I wonder what Tyra thinks is so clever about 'Top Model backwards' because I don't get it.

I hope Phil goes next. He and Jiana bore me to tears.
And I do like Cory but for someone who claims to be bored of all the relationship drama he does seem to spend a lot of time talking about it. He even brought it up with Jeremy, saying something bizarre about wanting to draw on a piece of paper a web of who is interested in who.

Wow this episode was kind of a hot mess.
I can't believe how much Jiana plummeted after being the star of the first couple of episodes.
Jourdan needs to stop hogging the first callouts and let someone else shine. lol Nah at least she deserves them. If she keeps dominating like this she may be already on the path to victory. Like the winner last cycle who just became too dominant to be beaten.
And Marvin the emotional wreck, what the hell was that about. I didn't realize whoever was eliminated was going to be executed aswell.

My original scores for the photos were:
9 - Jourdan
8 - Cory, Nina, Renee, Chris H
7 - Phil, Don
6 - Marvin, Jiana

Looks like the fans thought they were a mixed bag - a 7.5 for Jourdan, but then just 4.0 for Marvin and Phil and even a 3.9 for Jiana. Yikes what a comedown.

Plus it's been confirmed that the format for next cycle is......

I don't like the guys in this contest. They are all bugging me apart from Chris H. Even Cory is turning into kind of a jerk.

Marvin especially bugs me!

Jourdan is very good model. Not the most likeable personality though. The only two models I really like are Jourdan and Chris H.

BIB made me chuckle

But you are right. Don't know what was up with Marvin this episode. The scoring for some of the pics was a bit off for me. But in the end the right person left (though they are a strong contender to come back if they can sort themselves out)

Even though Renee had good comments this week, I still feel as she is coasting along and will probably be in danger next week.

I like Chris H., and Nina. On the Wiki page they have the scores totaled and averaged, and Jourdan is on top followed by Chris H., then Cory

Been catching up on ANTM recently. I think I prefer the competition with girls and guys - though maybe that's because it feels fresher/rejuvenated. The only thing that particularly annoys me about this series are the moving pictures (Flixel?). It's just needless and gimmicky.

My favourites are Chris, Nina and Jourdan as models, though Jourdan kind of annoys me.

Jourdan and Renee were throwing so many digs at eachother throughout the episode.
But we get yet another hook-up thrown in our faces with Marvin/Renee. I think if a girl acted like Marvin she would get annihilated for it, but Marvin is 'cute' when he does it apparently.

My original scores:
9 - Nina
8 - Chris H, Jourdan, Renee, Cory
7 - Phil, Marvin, Don

At last Chris H gets a first callout. Nina next I hope.
Kind of strange for Tyra to say 'so who gets to go to Bali?' when we already know all of them go to do the photoshoots lol

Yikes the comeback is always so dramatic, but am kind of surprised it's Alex though, as she's good but not great. I feel bad for Jiana because she has some killer shots that easily outshine everyone else on certain shoots.
Out of the guys, it won't be Mike (owner of possibly the worst portfolio ever), so either Phil/Jeremy. Probably Jeremy since everyone raved about how hot he is.
What a poor comeback twist it will have been if that's the two it brings back. At least last time it brought back a front-runner that was wrongly eliminated (though I think that was fixed that way to give it some meaning).

I was pleased Alex came back. She was my top pick. Though I wasn't sure she would be as she's been a bit low-key. Will be interesting to see how she performs when she returns, but I don't really see her as a potential winner.

Of the guys, I don't care. Don't like any of the three, but Jeremy annoys me the least.

For some reason I think that Phil might come back and get another chance, only to probably get eliminated fairly soon anyway.

Happy too that Chris got first callout.

I wonder if they were just knocking Jourdan down a few pegs to give her a bit of a redemption come-back arc. Her picture and fan score was still fairly strong.

Why wasn't Chris S in the comeback line up?

I don't know why but Chris S and Bianca weren't included in the comeback series and took no part in the photoshoots throughout the series.

Sorry for the random question but just curious to know why all the eliminated contestants are still doing the photo-shoots after the comeback contestant has been decided? Was it the same last year? Thanks.

I suppose to not spoil it for the viewers, who have been voting for their favourite pictures throughout the competition.

aha, thanks! I thought it was pointless to continue with all the photos after the comebacks were announced but that makes sense

Yeah they were the first two to go (so contestant numbers went down to 14) and Tyra said after that point anyone else eliminated would be able to comeback.

Rob Evans seems a bit miserable this series. He doesn't really say much anymore and isn't as enthusiastic as he was in C19.

I've got a feeling Phil will end up coming back, don't think he will win though

Oh, that's a shame. I liked Chris S.
I don't mind which male comes back as long as it isn't Phil, he gets on my nerves with the whole Jiana thing.

Starvin' Marvin is doing my head in... Especially how he stands there shouting at Chris H saying he has acne and no one likes him apart from Tyra... Favorites are Nina and Chris H.

For the love of god get rid of Bryanboy and the damn viewer voting..

lol at the last 2 posts basically saying the same thing.
I'm glad I'm not alone in disliking Marvin, thought I was being mean. I hate how the editing of the show is portraying him as cute aswell as being a creep.
Plus it's obvious he's the judges fave (Tyra's especially). She gave a 5 and a 6 to Phil and Jourdan's pictures this week and an 8 to Marvin's. wtf! Doesn't she realize how much damage to the scores a difference like that does.

You are not alone! Can't stand Marvin, he's probably my least favourite at this point. That's mostly down to his obnoxious personality, though I don't rate him that much as a model either.

I thought I would love Marvin but as the other people say he truly is Starvin Marvin he comes across as really desperate

Seems like Tyra is letting her infatuation to Marvin cloud her judgement. Cant wait for the next episode! Wooo!
