In the sudden and surprisingly impromptu elimination, Cory was the one to get eliminated at the beginning of tonight’s show. And although he tried to remain strong he couldn’t and broke down into tears. Before the elimination, Tyra told the contestants the person eliminated wouldn’t walk the runway but she changed her mind. Poor Cory he was so upset about being eliminated, so was I. I really liked Cory and was rooting for him.
So Cory was allowed to walk the runway with the remaining competitors and some of the previously eliminated contestants. Tyra told Cory she let him walk the runway because she had the same thing happen to her before a Versace show. She was all dressed and they told her to go home. She had all her makeup and was dressed but she had to leave in front of the other models that were chosen to stay. She was heartbroken and did not want to do that to Cory.
Cory learned that anything can happen leading to a runway stomp and it’s not always going to pretty. Despite this setback though he was stomping down the runway with Marvin and Jourdan. He also has to take the persona of a straight jealous lover to keep in character with the show. The show was based on a clip/movie they short earlier in the competition where Jourdan was the girl wronged by her loved (Cory) and Marvin was the good guy.
Cory hated pretending to be straight and thought now that he was eliminated he wouldn’t have to pretend anymore. Guess he was wrong, at least for this show.
Meanwhile Jourdan was nervous. She knew out of the two guys, Marvin was the bigger competition. Not only is he a guy but he also has a strong walk and chiseled cheek bones. Hopefully she’ll be able to outclass him on the runway. Chris did tell her that social media would be rooting for a guy. Way to make her even more nervous.
Prior to the runway the video they had shot was going to be played. It served as the backdrop to the show tonight. Even though they were suppose to portray the character they played in the video/clip, Marvin felt he was the only model to portray his characters emotions on the runway.
Jourdan chose to walk fiercely. Her walk was ruined for a couple of minutes when she stumbled on the runway but she was able to regroup backstage. All that was running through her mind was that this was her only shot to break into modeling. She said she was simply too broke to do it on her own.
Jourdan headed back out to the runway again and she brought it. During her second round with both guys this time she was fierce wearing a gold metal outfit. This time she did her best to stay in character and all 6 foot 1 of her looked marvelous.
When she practiced prior to the show, they practiced a kiss on the cheek but she went full on and kissed Marvin on the lips. Marvin thought she did it to try and throw him and he counted himself lucky he was able to keep his cool. Actually everyone looked fabulous on the runway.
Their last photo-shoot in the contest was going to be shot by Tyra. Usually she only serves as the photographer but this time she was the director as well. oth Marvin and Jourdan were psyched Tyra did their makeup. They both did a great job. It is going to be hard to decide.
At panel, the judges first critiqued their runway. They didn’t comment on the fact that Jourdan’s tripped, they did tell her she looked fierce and she really stomped it out. They all agreed they loved Marvin on the runway. They loved how he handled Jourdan’s full on kiss, he played off with awkward cuteness.
Then comes the difficult time. They have to look over the contestants’ body of work. It’s hard when its only two photos are being compared to each other. Sometimes Jourdan was great and other times it was Marvin. They each have come a long way and no one was consistently dominate.
The contestants had to leave during the deliberation. Thankfully they didn’t get to hear criticisms about them. Some were routing for Jourdan and others for Marvin. They couldn’t agree on whether Nylon wanted the freshness for Jourdan or the sexiness of Marvin.
In the end Jourdan was chosen to be the next top model. A move that clearly displeased at least one of the judges. Anyone can tell by looking at Rob’s face. Tyra really wanted a boy to win but according to her, Jourdan was simply that good.
What do you think should Jourdan win or did you think Marvin should in? Let us know your thoughts!
