Top Model Episode Recap: "The Final Five" Season 11, Episode 10

On this week's Top Model, the five remaining ladies struggle with the always troublesome go-see challenge, and come time for their photo shoot, Tyra plays the part of photographer.  

The girls are pumped to be a part of the top five - well everyone except neurotic Marjorie whose nerves are working overtime. And it doesn't help her much that their next challenge is go-sees where transportation is by boat.

All the girls get lost with trying to figure out the Dutch street names, but ultimately they all make it to their share of go-sees - except Marjorie who takes ten years and day to get to the first one. After two visits, she throws in the towel and heads back early. Everyone makes it back in time except McKey who gets disqualified for all her dillydallying despite her positive feedback. The verdict is Samantha is too commercial, Elina has too many tattoos, Analeigh has nice hair but tries too hard, and, surprise, surprise, Marjorie is too nervous. And the winner of the $18,000 worth of items for the designers is Analeigh. Good lord! Is that a sick prize or what?

For their photo shoot, Tyra pops out announcing she'll be directing this one. The shoot is a before-and-after where the girls have two poses - one sans make-up and glam, and one post-makeover. Samantha works her theatrical side for the after shot. The judges loved both, but I was partial to the casual shot. Marjorie stresses Tyra out with all her nervous jumping around for her before shot, but did better once the black lipstick was on. The judges feel she psyched herself out in the natural shot. I have to say it's amazing what a little make-up can do for that girl's confidence. Analeigh did well in her after shot, but the judges thought she lacked in her before shot. I have to agree with that one. Elina is stiff as board during both her before and after. Personally, I'm not a fan of either of her pictures. McKey killed it with her Clockwork Orange eye. I loved it. Samantha is the first one to be called largely in part to Nigel's obsession to her au natural shot. The bottom two consists of Elina and Marjorie. So who goes - the girl who holds on too tight or the girl who is a nervous wreck. And the lucky lady who stays is Marjorie. 

Honestly, I don't think I can deal with Marjorie anymore and would have rather seen Elina stay. It's gotten to a point where it's actually stressing me out to watch Marjorie go into one of her tizzies. I agree Sam did great, but McKey was my favorite. My money is on her to make it to the final two. What's your take on the episode?

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.
