Australia’s Next Top Model – Shooting in the Outback
Cassi Van Den Dungen is a confused and immature little girl. Why she thinks she can make a decision about getting married is a joke. She spent most of the episode in tears wanting to leave the competition. Her mother was pretty peeved when she told her she was going to leave the competition and voiced her disappointment. I thought it was strange that her mother in a previous article thought Cassi was mature enough to get married. I hope her mother is watching the show to realise her daughter barely has the emotional maturity to decide what she should have for dinner.
I also thought her mother could have been less negative towards her. The only other person less mature than Cassi was her 24 year old fiance. What was with all that “I love you for ever and ever.”?
The episode started with girls coming down to the lounge area and found their pictures are on the faces of some toy animals, so it was no surprise they were off to a farm, but wearing animal costumes was.
Photographer Justin Spittle and the a very amusing stylist were like characters off the set of Zoolander. He made the make up artist to do full on eye make up but then he did not like it once it was done. Cassi was told off by the photographer as he did not think she was trying. But then it was revealed all a set up. It was just to test the girl’s professionalism.
Then it was off to their real challenge where they had to model Cerroni jewellry whilst leaning on an ice sculptures. Ouch that must have hurt after awhile. Clare was a standout and Lola gave new meaning to the term brain freeze when she placed her head on a chunk of ice. But she did win a $2000 necklace.
Then it was off to South Australia to pose in the desert in for Russell James the photographer. It was a lingerie shoot with the added bonus of having a male model to pose with.
They were told the story was they had broken down in the desert and the girls had to take the story along from there.
Clare kicked the shoot off and did a great job. The photographer said “She was just on another level from the other girls.”. Is she going to be the next Alice Burdeau?
Laura had a hideous black g-string barely covered by a translucent skirt and the judges hated the photos. I don’t find Madison attractive at all with a face which barely moves and hair that looks like straw. As Alex Perry said “She just doesn’t have it.”.
Cassi pulled herself together on the shoot, and decided she wants to stay in the competition. She is photogenic. However the photographer said at the judges table that if she got through to the end not to let her win unless her attitude at photoshoots changes. He felt she just wanted to get out there and get the shots done as quickly as possible.
Laura and Madison were the bottom two. Madison was the one who was eliminated.
I am really loving Sarah Murdoch she is so natural and relaxed on camera, she actually mentors the girls, something Jodhi Meares did not do.
