New Zealand Top Model – Episode 2

I taped NZ Top Model last night and just watched it. This is always a favourite episode – the makeover. Of course, there were tears – Tyne Aitken’s – but mostly the girls were enthusiastic about the chance to be transformed from girls to potential models. For some, the change was minor, for others massive. Hilary went from bleached blonde to very dark and super short. Yanna went from long brown hair to short almost black. Tyne went from long, straight, nondescript hair to short and stylish but she wasn’t so sure – hence the tears. Isabel had part of her head shaved and loved it.
 The photo shoot was an advertisement for Temptation icecream and, while some girls shone, others faltered and lack-lustre photos resulted with no personality shining through.
And now for the results in order from best photo to the unfortunate girl who was eliminated:

And Now, the shock elimination. She was strong last week and, for me, a front runner but one bad photo and she is gone. I think she was as shocked as I was. She was the oldest model at 23 and hopefully that didn’t go against her. She is an exotic beauty and I would have liked to see more of her.
