America's Next Top Model: Episode 9.6 Who Should Go Home?
Once a week, we all come together to make a careful perusal of the performances the previous week in order to try to decipher which model we think Tyra will be booting off America's Next Top Model this week.

There are some who pick based on emotion (i.e., the recent hatred of Bianca and the picks that went along with it), some whom claim the editing tells the story in the first few minutes or at panel itself, some who check their tea leaves for the answer.

Me, I'm just going to keep it simple this week: Ambreal.

I mean, right? Can it be anyone else?

Once again, I want to caveat all of this with the fact that I like Ambreal and I certainly wouldn't wish anything bad on her. But I just get the sense that since she has an atypical model look (which can work sometimes, but in her case, she really has yet to translate it into a “wow” photo) doesn't seem to be the source of enough drama in the house, and seems to be a relatively even-keeled girl who isn't going to be good fodder for elimination panel head games, there's just not enough there to keep her around for another week of America's Next Top Model.

Then again, I'm not exactly batting 1000 with these picks as it is. While I picked Kimberly Leeman in the first column, I totally missed Victoria Marshman in the next, and only half-heartedly singled out Janet Mills in my most recent (in my defense I felt bad picking on her so much so I might have pulled that punch).

So maybe now that I've said it's all obvious that Ambreal will leave this week, she'll probably win the whole thing and come back next season of America's Next Top Model to drive home my inability to make a good pick with her cheery “My Life as a Cover Girl” spots.

But I'm going to stick with it, in the true sense of this being a column about who should go home. She's a beautiful girl, but I just don't get the sense that she's on track to win this particular reality show.

And of course, the best part…make your own picks! Who do you think should go home? Have you been picking all along? How well are you doing?
