Australia’s Next Top Model – And A Girl Was Disqualified
It was the episode that ANTM fans had been anticipating. Who was the girl that was going to get disqualified and was it deserved?
Well the names had hit the papers yesterday when it was revealed Taylah was the girl involved in the incident and she was the one who was punted.
Firstly they had no choice but to disqualify Taylah as it did go too far, however I suspect the bullying that occurred by Demelza to Alamela was far more detrimental then this more physical incident.
This week the model’s were at Silverton in NSW and it was hot and dusty. The first challenge was not related to modelling but about painting. In fact without “the incident” the episode would have been rather dull.
After the challenge had finished Ashlee started a paint fight (at the instigation of the producers?) and she ended up putting paint on Dajana who had borrowed a shirt of Taylah. Taylah was pissed because it was dirty and she did not have anymore clothes apparently.
Taylah then rushed over and half jokingly said I am going to strangle her and then she grabbed her and did wrestling her into the bushes. This last bit went on too long and went from a light hearted exchange to something with more aggressive overtones. Someone did yell from the sidelines to stop eventually.
At the judgement time showing the judges got all “that was out of line so you are disqualified”.
After that Madeline and Jade were named the best photo of the day and Ducky and Melissa the weakest models. However it was no surprise when they told both girls they were safe. The producers were probably kicking themselves that they eliminated two girls the week before.
