I love Ann, in fact cycle 15 of America’s Next Top model has been on of my favorite seasons thus far, and Ann, super awkward Ann has been my top favorite contestant week after week. For once I was not the only one to think so either, as she managed to make top model history by snagging the best photo for 5 consecutive weeks.
Last week however Ann got bopped from her winning streak when Liz took the scene with her gnarly man photo. I have to say I loved Liz’s photo, but I just don’t like her presence.
This week I was biting my nails when I watched Ann, my awkward favorite go from being a top contestant, to the most sad and pathetic looking creature that has ever graced the show.
This week their was no photo shoot, and I had a hunch that Ann would bomb this one because her on screen appearance is a little awkward, while her speaking voice is to low and lax.
I knew that when they were shooting the commercial for some sports water, that she was going to fail. I did not think however, that she would fail as horrendously as she did. The commercial called for remembering dialog, interacting with a male model, and rolling around on roller skates. I had no idea how many people couldn’t skate. I figured it would be simple, as it’s a childhood past time (at least it was for me).
Some nailed it, and others…. failed. Ann being the worst commercial shoot out of the bunch.
On skates she looked taller than usual, however her makeup was beautiful and she looked great. Ann though could not get passed how awkward she ‘thought’ she looked on skates. She psyched herself out, as she calls it, and managed to take a nice hard land on her rear end. It looked painful, and instead of just shaking it off, she got embarrassed and tried scurrying up to her feet.
She needed help being pushed along in order to continue on through the commercial shoot, but her voice was broken, her eyes glazed as if she would start bawling at any moment, and she let herself fail.
I worried that her presence in person would make the judges think she did not have enough model quality in person to pass her along to another round. I figured this could be the nail in the coffin.
Thankfully they sent that other girl home, Esther.
Ann continues on in the competition, but if she does not adjust her self worth levels, she will more than likely be going home, and that’s just sad.
