New model house

Come and smize here

Still bored with this. Why did Elle meet up with Ronan Keating?

Did like the lumpen girl saying that Elle didn't have that 'model face' and it was much easier to get into the industry back then. Then referring to Grace as a bitch.

Dirty Sexy Things was pretty good - Perou was once again a weapons grade cock to his models, but the final shot was brilliant (but so much to chance in it - if the people manning the paint buckets cocked up then the shot was worthless). Ariella refused to wear a thong body. Pretty soon she'll be showing up in a niquab.

I only saw this bit as just after the beginning I turned over to Embarrassing Teens and was engrossed (grossed) but a girl's infected scalp, was much more interesting

Still didn't watch the Dirty Pretty Things

I wonder if NTM has lost viewers?

Only half watched this last night. All the girls seemed pretty forgettable except for stroppy lumpy blonde, baby faced Gina Davis lookey-likey and strange big faced manc.

Why did Elle meet up with Ronan Keating?

Presumably to explain the existence of Ireland for the less mentally astute viewer.

Actually, I happened to be in BT2 on one of the days they were filming. I saw nothing but a few cameramen.

I've just caught up on Youtube. Only seen one really modelesque girl so far - Amy (?) who looks like a cross between Noel Fielding and Paula Hamilton. She's head and shoulders above any of the others, yet only Julien liked her. Honestly, they should put me on the panel. I've got much better taste than Grace and Charlie put together.

Sorcha65 - 21 Jul 2011 21:06:32 (#106 of 967)

I did like the cross girl who couldn't see what Elle had that she hadn't, and who thought Elle got into modelling when there was less competition.

DejaLu - 21 Jul 2011 21:22:43 (#107 of 967)

Is it worth catching up with the past two weeks? I've zapped them but am weighed down by audition ennuie.

foxybrown - 21 Jul 2011 21:34:41 (#108 of 967)

No point whatsoever Deja, delete

Hopefully the final sift will be on Monday and the show will start proper the following week

DejaLu - 21 Jul 2011 21:52:33 (#109 of 967)

Thanks, Foxy. Less queuing, more SMIZEing!

Watching Julien + mate trogging round a completely empty Cardiff shopping precinct on a Saturday night on the lookout for the next Gisele the was mildly amusing. Best watched with severe jetlag.

Sorcha65 - 23 Jul 2011 11:14:29 (#111 of 967)

No, wouldn't bother. Next week is the sift, so will probably be skippable as well. It only really gets interesting when you start to get a vague sense of what they're like.

btw am I very old, or very reticent, to be shocked by the number of girls who when asked 'tell us what you're like' start by saying 'I'm a really great person'? I just find this bewildering, and it seems to come from what may be ordinary decent human beings as well as fame-crazed dipsticks.

DejaLu - 23 Jul 2011 11:53:53 (#112 of 967)

Nope - I can't imagine saying that in a million, billion, zillion years.

foxybrown - 23 Jul 2011 18:26:04 (#113 of 967)

I'm a really great person


Because I said so, innit

If you have to say that you are, you probably are not

doctorsyntax - 23 Jul 2011 18:27:29 (#114 of 967)

I suspect it's because they've all been watching too much ANTM, where if you don't say that, you're out on your ear for not believing in yourself.

foxybrown - 25 Jul 2011 21:14:28 (#115 of 967)

So far not too bad, still sticking with the poundland X Factor format though

I laughed at one of the group shots where someone tilted their head back so far the picture was of their neck

foxybrown - 25 Jul 2011 21:23:35 (#116 of 967)

Kimberleigh? Juste?Lauri?

I have a weird first name but WTF?

Sorcha65 - 25 Jul 2011 21:25:27 (#117 of 967)

Don't be hard on yourself. Foxy's a great name.

foxybrown - 25 Jul 2011 21:27:04 (#118 of 967)


I'm liking this week's ep so far

foxybrown - 25 Jul 2011 21:37:09 (#119 of 967)

Big Jessica the squasher looks my age

ottoline07 - 25 Jul 2011 21:58:43 (#120 of 967)

That Liverpudlian girl looks like Lindsay Lohan - post binge. Photo-genity is like alchemy. A lot of them look rough as fuck and then look amazing on film.
