America’s Next Top Model 11: Planes, Trains and Slow Automobiles

ANTM logo

I was starting to feel like this day would never come. The day when only six remained on America’s Next Top Model 11. (Does anyone even remember the name of the show’s first transgendered contestant??) Just as a reminder, the girls chosen to represent America in Amsterdam were Analeigh, Elina, Marjorie, McKey, Samantha and Sheena. Did anyone manage to embarrass us on their first day there?

America’s Next Top Model 11: Now You See Me, Now You Don’t

ANTM logo

Even though it had been two weeks since the last original America’s Next Top Model, it was like no time had passed. Joslyn was still frustrated by her downhill slide, Sheena was still frustrated about not being considered “modelesque” and the unemotional Europeans (a.k.a Elina and Marjorie) were both still frustrated about being misunderstood.

America’s Next Top Model 11: The Fiercee Awards

On this week’s episode of , the girls learned that modeling wasn’t just about showing up and looking pretty. It was about discovering who you were and not being afraid to let go. It was about knowing your best traits and embracing your warts.

Given Clark’s recent elimination, the remaining eight ladies realized they couldn’t afford to take their critiques for granted. Elina still had to overcome control issues, Lauren Brie had to deliver a personality and Analeigh needed to find her niche.

America’s Next Top Model 11: Natural Beauty

On this week’s episode of , the girls learned how quickly the game could change. With just one roll of film, a model could either sink to the bottom or vault to the top.

Who was confident that they could change…and who was confident that things wouldn’t change? Read on!

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 11: Fierce Eyes

ANTM logo

Just when I thought I had seen everything on , the producers decided to throw in a new twist. And surprisingly, it didn’t have anything to do with Tyra. This week, one girl was eliminated before reaching the show’s halfway mark. (No photo shoot, no judges panel…nada.) Make no mistakes—Season 11’s gonna be ruthless!

In this episode, the women were finally given the chance to show off their version of a runway walk. But since simple strutting down an actual runway would be too easy, Miss J had to spice things up a bit. This time around, the ladies were taken to a bowling alley where they were given special high-heeled bowling shoes. (Cue Hannah: “I didn’t even know they made stuff like that!”) Since models are often asked to walk on different types of surfaces, the challenge was to master the slick bowling lanes.

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 11: You’re Beautiful, Now Change

What is traditionally one of my favorite parts of was once again tainted by an overdramatic – and unnecessary – Tyra performance. Couldn’t she just let the makeover episode speak for itself? Couldn’t she let the cameras focus on the actual competitors?

When the girls returned home from the last elimination, they were surprised to find their head judge waiting inside for them. While there was a purpose for Tyra’s presence, the hostess used the opportunity to display her tiara and her lame acting skills. After explaining how she and her mother “made over” her modeling career (she turned to Sports Ilustrated when she was deemed too fat by high-fashion designers), she then told the ladies that it was time for their makeovers.

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 11: The Ladder of Model Success

ANTM logo

On this week’s episode of , the ladies learned the importance of making a good first impression. One girl said a few things she shouldn’t say, one girl placed a product in a place she shouldn’t put it, and another girl put off her roomies thanks to an off-putting remark.

But what does any of that have to do with modeling, right?

America’s Next Top Model Cycle 11: Top Model Inauguration

America's Next Top Model Cycle 11

For the 11th cycle of , the CW wasted no time in getting viewers drawn into the drama. In addition to the annual selection episode, Week 1 consisted of a bonus elimination hour.

Since the 14 finalists (including a transgendered contestant) were revealed to the media weeks ago, there’s really little need to detail the events of the show’s anti-climatic first half. So let’s just move on to meaty portion of the competition, shall we?

America’s Next Top Model Introduces Transgendered Contestant

America's Next Top Model's Isis

Throughout the 10 cycles of America’s Next Top Model, there have a number of girls who weren’t considered typical models. (Who knew tomboy Lauren would look hot with makeup on?) Then there were those with very masculine traits. (Remember when Paulina called Dominique the transvestite version of Robin Wright Penn?)

Now for the show’s eleventh season, the producers will once again be challenging our concept of beauty. For the first time, the series will be introducing its first transgendered contestant. During her interview before the judges’ panel, 22-year-old Isis explained why she chose to transform herself from a man to a woman. “I was born physically male…but mentally, everything else, I was born female.”
