The Girls Go to Shanghai Season 9, Episode 10

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We're down to 6 girls left on ANTM and this week the gang was off to China. As the girls packed their bags for the trip, Bianca once again laid into Heather. She just can't leave that girl alone! She said she was tired of all the girls having to act like Heather's mother but she seems to be the only one who brings it up. Once the models touched down in China, they made their way to the new suite. They quickly discovered that two of them would be sharing a bed and immediately designated Heather to be one of those girls. Heather took it personally and was upset that the others girls seemed to be picking on her again. On the ladies' first day in China, they were off to some martial arts training. The models were taught several martial arts poses and were asked to perform these poses while being hoisted into the air. The challenge brought out Bianca's intense fear of heights leaving her no choice but to drop out of the task and accept disqualification. The judge chose Heather as the winner and she invited Chantal to join her on a shopping spree in Shanghai. The next day the girls met with Mr. Jay for a Cover Girl photo and commercial shoot. It was here that things took a turn for the worst for Heather. During the commercial, she couldn't get her lines down. Even as Mr. Jay spoon-fed her line after line, she still delivered each one with the same awkward demeanor that we've seen her give whenever her disability starts to show. Lisa also seemed to have some difficulty performing while it seemed like second nature for Saleisha and Bianca. But would it be enough to keep Bianca in the game after she refused to participate in the challenge? Not long after the photo shoot, it was time to face the judging panel for another elimination. As Tyra started handing out the photos, things weren't looking good for Heather. Tyra expressed major disappointment that Heather still couldn't deliver her lines even when Mr. Jay gave her a little boost. This drove Tyra and co. to put Heather in the bottom two with Lisa. Knowing how well Heather has done in the past and how much the judges love her interesting look, it was pretty obvious that Lisa was being sent home. With tears rolling down her face, she said goodbye to her friends and Heather joined the rest of the remaining models. First off, I have to say I was expecting a more harsh reaction from the judges regarding Bianca's refusal to participate in the challenge especially since she wasn't even afraid during the gargoyle photo shoot. Of course Heather's performance was awful even when she got the special treatment from Mr. Jay but to me, an outright refusal to participate is far worse. Of the remaining girls, I'm finding it difficult to find a favorite. Just like every prior season, my early favorites have been sent home and right when I jumped on the Lisa bandwagon, she too joined her fallen comrades. What gives? I'm totally unimpressed with the 5 girls we're left with. I like Saleisha but I'm hesitant because I suspect she'll be the next to go. Thoughts? show less

Premise: Aspiring models compete for a chance to break into the business in this runaway hit. Created and executive-produced by supermodel Tyra Banks, its formula of beautiful women plus unappealing behavior make it enormously popular and one of the more intriguing reality shows, with its wannabe cover girls living together in a house and, between catfights, going out on photo shoots while they vie for a modeling contract.
