    Kasia's too old (26) and Ondrei is too short (5'7") so we can rule them out right now.

    I hate the Taylor Momsen raccoon eye look that they've given these girls. I assume these pics are pre-make over. It's impossible to predict, but Mikayla (sp?) is the only one that made an impression on me favorably. Good cheekbones.

    Molly, Kasia, Angelia, and Dominique need to be careful when they pose, or they will be competing for Tranny of the Season....

    Ha. I looked at that photo and thought that she looked like a meth addict with those sucked in cheeks.

    it gets worse and worse each season. they're all not very good looking. maybe it's the make-up.

    Yuck, I don't care for any of them, from these photos...but I also don't like the way they styled them. Here's hoping for better pictures from the season itself.

    You missed Dalya. Linebacker shoulders, and I say that as someone who has wide shoulders herself. (But I don't stand in a hunched-over "yes master Igor is coming" pose for photos with them.)

    I really hope that it's just bad, bad styling.

    The picture popped up on my Facebook, and my first random thought was goth tranny alien girls. I'm sure they're mostly very pretty! I don't get how one of them is 5'7", I thought 5'8" was required?

    I still would like to see an over 30, over 40, whatever, something different (like when they did the "petite" girls (though a lot of them were 5'7").

    Ondrei seems to me the most attractive, most of them aren't that attractive at all. I don't think they even subbed last season for Latin America, I doubt I'll be watching this run.

    omg most of them look completely horrible, not pretty or nice or anything!! and the make-up is crap, clothing terrible, and some of these girls seem to be suffering from some kind of syndrom judging from the pics.... some stylist will be out of work by tomorrow!!
    the posing is also :scream: some of those legs looks totally deformed...

    Ondrei was cute though!

    I pretty much gave up on ANTM after the season McKey won (how I managed to stick with it after the Tootie Carparts disaster is beyond me).

    However, I caught a marathon on Oxygen a couple of weeks ago for the petite season, and I have to say that the girl that won, Nicole, was freaking a-ma-zing. From what I've read, she's gotten a ton of work since her win - given her look, her ability to photograph, and her personality, I can easily see why.

    As for this season? Eh. Not sure if I'll tune in or not.

    ETA: WTF is up with the strung-out, heroin junkie look they're all sporting? :yikes:

    It starts tonight :) Just a reminder. Not sure how long I'll stick with the season, but I'm tuning in to see if they're at least not as bark worthy as they appear to be in the pictures lol.

    No Friday night repeats this year, at least none that my TiVo listings know about.

    The girls look better without the crappy make up they had in the pictures.

    Uh, that casting stunt was kind of cruel- what about the girls who were told they were moving on, but really weren't?

    I think this group is even more model looking than last cycle. I hate those ridiculous runway challenges they do, but I though the whole bubble thing was really cool looking.

    I kept hoping those were actresses or models and weren't really contestants.

    I was hoping that as well. Poor girls if they weren't.

    LOL @ Nigel's "cat's bottom" statement, and the face that accompanied it. That was hilarious.

    I kind of missed all the wackiness that occurs during the casting interviews. Did they say why they chose to jump right into the show wihtout doing their traditional picking of the contestants?

    The girl with the baby voice :yikes: I know she can't control her voice but I couldn't stand hearing it!

    My early favorites are Britani, Mikaela and Nicole.

    I was so hoping the freckle girl would be eliminated (her name escapes me right now). Her personality is awful. She totally blew the runway yet rolled her eyes when she didn't get first call out? Bish, please! But they did eliminate the right girl in the end.

    Doesn't Mikaela remind anyone of last cycle's Esther?

    So far I like Kasia (although they won't have another plus size winner, ever, I bet), Jaclyn (underneath all that hair is a model!), Alexandria and Brittai.

    Now you know how I felt about Anya in the season with Whitney. Girl's voice drove me UP A WALL. (And yes, I know lots of Russians, and they don't all sound like that.)

    Maybe since they announced the cast online they didn't feel like going through the whole "Oh, whom shall we choose?" rigmarole?

    I was all prepared to watch and then brain freeze! I totally forgot and ended up watching a Netflix movie ("Knight & Day"). Tried to catch up on-line. Then, tried to find a repeat day/time, but no luck. Judging from the photos, there are some interesting looking girls, but most will have some difficulty being photographed well unless they figure out how to get the most out of their look. Interesting can be good, but it can be challenging.

    Not overwhelmed with any of them. Assuming one of the purposes of this program is to find and create successful models, 26 is too old and 5 ft. 7 in. is too short for this particular show.

    If I don't remember to watch next Wednesday, that will probably say something my interest level.

    O-

    I thought the plastic bubble at the fashion show was ridiculous, especially when the two girls fell and no one did anything to help. Judging candid backstage pictures was even more ridiculous. There are a few girls (again) who are just plain homely, not models. Don't know their names, but the girl with freckles? Really, a model? The girl with the rat tail? Not even remotely attractive. There are a couple of girls I can see doing high fashion, but overall, a pretty poor group this time around.

    Meh, I gave up on this show after season seven, but I watched this episode.

    I hope the group that got the photos during the casting weren't actual contestants, but from the sound of it, they were. That would be really harsh to think you made it onto the show, only to find out it was some absurd stunt and then be sent home.

    The bubble thing looked downright silly, and I felt bad for the girls who fell down. A good portion of the crowd outright laughed. The only one who pulled it off was Brittani. She impressed me.
