America's Next Top ModelFrancesco Carrozzini Season 16 • Episode 4
Top Model is like a fine wine: It only gets better — and by better we mean more mean-spirited — with age. Not content with making this season’s hopefuls walk on water in plastic bubbles in the premier episode, last night’s ANTM offered another ridiculous challenge: catwalking in a Geoffrey Mac show while on fire. Well, only their hands were actually aflame, thanks to special gloves they doused in lighter fluid or whatever it is they used. Yet not even a sculpted eyebrow was singed. Post-show, Miss Jay decided that the three runway performers he liked the least would have to walk home. They needed the practice, obviously.
Instead of a photo shoot, the girls then filmed mostly underwhelming Mad Men-esque commercials for a fake coffee brand, Fierce Roast. Baby-faced Jaclyn wore butt pads to enhance her curves and found them just peachy, but four episodes of Jaclyn have well illustrated that merely blinking provides her a similar amount of giddy glee.
At panel, ALT was not wearing feathers in his hat this week. He panned some commercials as “weak, boring, blah”; Tyra — looking like a circus ringmaster in her “whip outfit” — did something somewhat vulgar with her tongue; and Nigel kept making terrible jokes (go figure). Also notable is poor Molly’s makeover weave, which still resembles limp udon noodles.
Plus-size Kasia (the ex-Wilhelmina girl) won this week, while feminist Sara, this season’s token androgynous beauty, was sent packing. See some of ALT's ingenious assessments and more from last night's episode in the video.
