I caught up on episode 2 rather late in the week, so welcome to episode 3! On New Zealand’s Next Top Model this week the girls were taken on a short trip to Rotura for a tribal inspired photoshoot at the Hell’s Gate mud pools. This photoshoot did not look fun, the girls were covered in (cold!) mud, wearing only skin coloured undies and big tribal inspired jewellery.
Personalities are beginning to show through – the good, and the bad. Two of the stroppiest girls on the show, Dakota and Holly, turned on young Lara remarking on her ‘fat thighs’ (not even!) and Dakota stating she’s like to put a gun to her head. The two weren’t so pleased to hear her name called first at the elimination.
Lara – one of my favourites.
Courtenay – another favourite, those eyes are stunning.
Courtenay was the winner of the ‘Zorb challenge’ in which the girls had to make model poses while rolling in one of New Zealand’s famous Zorb’s.
The judges love Danielle, they pour compliments on her and her confidence is beginning to increase. I reckon she’ll last in this competition because she photographs very well (and is full of quotes that make good TV, this week: “Back home, you have one of three options: go on the dole, get pregnant, or get and do something with your life. I’ve chosen the third option.” It will be interesting to see what happens when the judges start criticizing her.
Amelia is another favourite, she has a maturity about her that might prevent her from winning this competition – but a babe nonetheless! The judges remarked that this was a more ‘pinup’ style photograph.
A quick comment on the twins – they take stunning photographs and they are the sweetest, most polite girls in the house from what I’ve seen. I just think it’s a bit unfair having twin professional models in the house…
This week we say goodbye to Jamie, not the best decision. She is gorgeous on camera, and although the judges comment that she needs to come through in the eyes a bit more I reckon in a few more episodes she would have.
Colin quote of the week:
Next week the remaining girls get their makeovers. Who will get their head shaved?
