Tonight’s episode: Time for the 19th season and Tyra Banks has a whole new look for us and this time, the fans will have a voice in the judging room. Tyra has scoured schools around the country, but first we get to meet the judges; returning judge Kelly Cutrone, supermodel Rob Evans and Katy Perry’s stylist Johnny Wujek.
Time for the competition to begin, the girls start by walking the runway over a pool to show what they’ve got and there is certainly a lot of confidence. The competition is on, the 30 girls head to a photo shoot and give it all they got.
The photos of the girls were posted online after the photo shoot and the judges will use that feedback to make their decision. Now it’s time for the girls to face the judges. Laura has a famous dad; Jeff Colby from the 80′s version of Dallas, Brittany is a huge Disney fan, Destiny ended up in a group home at age 14 and has had a tough life, Ivory wears a fake tooth because she is missing a tooth but on the right side of her mouth, Christin cheers herself with pom poms, Jasmine is known as kitty because she meows, Victoria goes to online college? (guess that still qualifies), Leila has huge gap in her teeth and doesn’t let it hold her back, Maria is from Havard, Darian bikes every day to school so she has terrific legs, Kaci is a fashion student who sings, Leila has huge gap in her teeth and doesn’t let it hold her back, Maria is from Havard, Darian bikes every day to school so she has terrific legs, Kaci is a fashion student who sings, Jessie has so much body in her bikini that Tyra calls her butt a “world class butt”. Kristin has been suspended from high school a few times, Nastasia is good at posing, Yvonne is a beauty queen and Kiara plays basketball; she wants to be great role model for girls.
The moment has arrived, the girls will find out who will be entering the sorority house. Thirteen girls will have their names called out by Tyra, they are; Kristin, Nastasia, Laura, Allyssa, Destiny, Kiara, Leila, Darian, Maria, Jessie, Brittany, Yvonne and Victoria.
The girls run into the house and find a sporty girls room, a geek room and a pink room. Everyone is so excited and some are already thinking about the competition and know it is going to be fierce.
Next time on AMNTM, the claws come out for a lot of girls and poor Victoria who has been home schooled most of her life, has a bad case of seperation anxiety from her mother.
