Last week's Make Me A Supermodel
was all about movement and action, while this week is all about personality and drama. Considering there's plenty of personality and drama in the house, this week's theme should suit the Supermodel
hopeful. Though last week saw the first female elimination; with Karen being sent home for her mediocre performances and scary-eyes at the end of the runway, it'll be back to the boys in the bottom two this week.
While this week's photo shoot is about dramatic make-up and characters, I predict interpersonal drama is finally going catch up with a couple of the Supermodel
hopefuls. Gabriel's proclivity for jack-ass behavior is once again on full display this week and unless he takes his first stunning photo and ekes out a solid runway walk; there is no way Mr. Moody is going to make it to next week's challenge. Another possible contender for elimination this week is Shawn, who's done nothing to impress me or the judges. Sure, Shawn has an incredibly chiseled face and rugged good looks, but over-all he's the weakest remaining male competitor.
The only other possibilities for the bottom two, in my mind at least, are CJ and Laury. CJ's crummy attitude and so-so runway performances are going to catch up with her sometime, it's just a matter of when. Laury, on the other hand, has had a decent attitude throughout the competition (save her outburst after Amanda's win last week), but her photos show a model who hasn't learned how to work her strong features. Ultimately, I think the girls will be safe this week and one of the boy's will be sent packing, but both Laury and CJ need to step up their game.
As for this week's top performers, I think it's finally going to be Jonathan's turn to shine and win. Jonathan has show again and again this season that he has what it takes to succeed in the business. Overall his photos have been some of the strongest of the group and his runway walk is unstoppable. While I love Kerryn and it was great to see her strut with such confidence last week, there is no way her runway walk deserved to win over Jonathan's seriously fabulous cod-piece and cricket inspired walk.
If Jonathan doesn't win, I think it's likely that one of the previous winners will rise to the top again. Jordan is proving she's the girl to beat this season and the judges are obviously enamored with her look. Jordan has also proved an adept chameleon with the help of strong make-up, so this week's over-the-top make-up and costumes may play to Jordan's strengths. I'd love to see "Almost Amish" Salome to return with strength this week, but if she had a problem with channeling a sports pose last week "due to her upbringing," I imagine a zombie photo shoot will be way outside of her comfort zone.
Who's zombie shoot will bring them back to life and who will remain in the league of the Supermodel undead? You'll have to tune in to Bravo tonight to find out.
