Kris: The search is on again to find Beautiful's Next Top Model. Auditions were held all across the country as thousands of girls lined up for their chance at stardom. 13 girls were chosen and by the end of the season 1 of them will win a contract with ModeL Management, a contract with Revlon and the cover of Fashion Icon magazine. Who will walk away with the title?

Age: 20
Location: Colorado
Occupation: Waitress
Height: 5'11"
Bio: Ali has dreamed of pursuing a modelling career ever since she was a young girl. Although she has done a few test shots, Ali hasn't had the success that she'd hoped for. "I've done a little bit of work here and there but Colorado's not really the best place to try and start a modelling career." Ali currently works as a waitress in order to save up enough money to move to New York. She hopes that this competition will finally give her what she's been looking for.

Age: 22
Location: New York
Occupation: Fashion Student
Height: 6'1"
Bio: Candace attends a prestigious fashion school where she's gained a lot of knowledge about the fashion industry. Throughout school, Candace was often teased for being different from everyone else. "I'm very eccentric and free spirited so a lot of people think that I'm weird. I like being different and I think my quirky personality will definitely make me stand out in the competition." Candace is ready to bring some life and color to the competition.

Age: 23
Location: California
Occupation: Heiress
Height: 5'9"
Bio: Imogene is an heiress to her father's fortune, who owns a world wide 5 star hotel. She is very passionate about helping others, and contributes much of her money to animal shelters and charities. Imogene has always been curious about the world of fashion and is ready to try her hand at the modelling business. "This is completely new to me. I'm a little nervous but I'm always up for a new challenge. I think this could be the right place for me."

Age: 19
Location: Florida
Occupation: Student
Height: 5'10"
Bio: Armed with a confident personality and a sassy attitude, Jacquelyn is ready to take the competition by storm. "Who I am at the end of the day is me. Love it or hate it, take it or leave it. It's what you're going to get. These girls better watch out because I'm going to take what's mine." Jacquelyn was brought up in an upper middle class family but never saw much of her parents. "Most of the time it was just me and my nanny. I learned to fend for myself and that's what I think gives me this focus and determination to go all the way."

Age: 20
Location: Maryland (Originally Ireland)
Occupation: Assistant Dance Instructor
Height: 5'9"
Bio: Janice has had a passion for dance since the tender age of 3. When she was 11, her family packed up and moved to Maryland where Janice later began helping her friend teach dance at a local academy. Her friend encouraged her to try out for the competition after noticing that Janice had a lot of natural potential. "Although I love dancing I'm interested in giving modelling a try. I feel that my natural movements and my edgy look will be an advantage for me." Can this dancer be transformed into a top model?

Age: 20
Location: Illinois
Occupation: Student
Height: 5'8.5"
Bio: Kelly has always had a tough girl, rebellious side. So it shocked her mother when Kelly told her that she wanted to become a model at the age of 10. "Everybody thought I was joking when I told them that I wanted to be a model but I was serious. I might not look like your typical supermodel but I do have a strong passion for this." Kelly's parents never went on to help her begin her career but after hearing about the auditions of cycle 16, she knew that she had to give it a shot.

Age: 19
Location: California
Occupation: Film Editor
Height: 5'10"
Bio: Lyra has never quite felt like she fit in with her American-Japanese heritage growing up all over the world with her father, a notable film director. Lyra hasn't made many friendships and thinks that they just distract her from her goal in life - to become a film director like her father. However, when she saw that tryouts for BNTM were coming to her town, she decided that it was time to let go of her fears and try something spontaneous. "I've been so focused for so long, but I need to live for me - I want to be a model and I want to make friends! Life can't just be a whirlwind of work. I know that I have what it takes, I just don't know if I'll be able to assimilate into the world of modeling with these other girls."

Age: 21
Location: Georgia
Occupation: Restaurant Hostess
Height: 5'9.5"
Bio: Melissa is the prime example of why you should never judge a book by its cover. "When people 1st look at me they think I've just had this perfect life and that I'm probably just some dumb sorority girl. But actually life hasn't always been so good to me." At age 7, Melissa and her parents were hit by a drunk driver coming home at night. The impact killed bother of her parents and left Melissa's head scarred for life. "I have quite a large scar on the top of my head from being cut by glass. I try to hide it the best I can. It's hard losing both your parents at such a young age. I've been through a lot in my life and I think that's what gives me the strength to shoot for my goals."

Age: 22
Location: Wisconsin
Occupation: Sales Clerk
Height: 5'11"
Bio: Michelle works as a sales clerk at a clothing store where she is the primary income of her family. "I'm married and I have a 3 year old son at home. They're my life and I'd do anything for them." Michelle's husband was permanently laid off from his job as a contractor and ever since the family has been struggling. "We're living paycheck to paycheck now and we're constantly stressed out over bills and finances. When you have a family you have to do what you have to do and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to provide for my family." Michelle is determined to win not only for her sakes but her family's sake as well.

Age: 18
Location: New York
Occupation: High School Student
Height: 5'9"
Bio: Mila is a lot like your typical, All American teenager. "I'm an honors student and I'm on the cheerleading squad. Basically I'm just your girl next door but I have a lot more edge than what you're used to." Mila skipped school to audition for Top Model but says it was all worth it. "That unexcused absence might not look too good on my college application but who cares? I'm a finalist on Beautiful's Next Top Model!" Mila wants to show everyone that she's more than just a pretty face.

Age: 20
Location: Louisiana
Occupation: Unemployed
Height: 5'11.5"
Bio: Portia grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. When Hurricane Katrina struck, Portia lost a lot and had to be evacuated from her home. "It was a terrible experience. But I stayed positive because I knew that it was in God's hands." While staying in the Saints Stadium during the evacuation, Portia met a local model who inspired her to pursue a career in modelling. "I lost a lot during Hurricane Katrina but I'm ready to earn all that stuff back. This competition could make all my dreams come true."

Age: 19
Location: New Jersey
Occupation: Aspiring Model
Height: 5'9"
Bio: Therese was born into a poor a family. Her father was paralytic so she spent much of her time caring for him. "Being at home was hell. Taking care of my father was really tough because he was a hard man. My sisters didn't give a damn so it was pretty much all up to me." Therese got involved with a bad group of kids at age 16 and after breaking the law, was sent to Juvenile Prison. After being released last year Therese made up her mind that she was going to go after her dreams. "Modelling is where I belong. Not 1 doubt in my mind. When I want something I go after it and no one is going to take it from me."

Age: 18
Location: Illinois
Occupation: Cashier/Student
Height: 5'10"
Bio: Zoey attends school during the day and works as a cashier at night. She is very interested in the arts and paints portraits during her free time. "I love creating shapes and movements. Whether it be with my body or a paint brush I love the see shapes come alive and create something beautiful." Zoey was encouraged to audition for the show by her art teacher who noticed Zoey's natural posing ability during an art assignment. "Modelling was nothing I really ever considered. I was suggested to try out by my art professor so I thought about it and decided to give it a go."

Kris: Who will crack under the pressure and who will go all the way? Find out this cycle of Beautiful's Next Top Model!!

Great cast. I just hope the eliminations aren't as off as they were last cycle.

Melissa, Michelle and Mila aren't very impressive to me as of now, so they could be the first three to leave.

I hope the top three is Portia, Imogen and Lyra :love

I truly feel that this is the strongest cast we've ever had. The photos this week are so gorgeous and I think it's the strongest start to any cycle. I can't wait for you guys to see them!! It's going to be so difficult to make the 1st elimination because I don't think anybody did a bad job.

11-14-2010, 11:17 PM
Can't wait for the first episode !!!!!

11-14-2010, 11:20 PM
I'm so excited for the first week!

11-15-2010, 12:29 AM
The premiere is soon!!!!

11-15-2010, 01:29 AM

A bus is sitting in an empty parking lot. 1 by 1 the contestants begin to make their way onto the bus and take their seats.

Mila Confessional: My name is Mila. I'm so excited to be a part of this competition. I just turned 18 a few weeks ago so I'm the youngest girl here. Modelling is something I have a huge passion for and to get the chance to possibly be signed to ModeL Management is just crazy.

Ali is dragging her suitcase along the pavement on the way to the bus. She steps on and greets the girls.

Ali: Hi guys! I'm Ali.
Confessional: I have been trying to break into this industry for a long time now. I have some experience but my career never really took off like I wanted it to. I think this could be my big chance to realize my dream and begin an international career as a model.

After everyone has gotten on the bus the driver pulls off to escort the girls to their new house.

Kelly Confessional: I looked around the bus and saw all these tall, gorgeous girls sitting around me and instantly I felt nervous. I think I have my own thing going on that nobody else has. My look is very edgy and hardcore. I don't look like your typical blonde hair, blue eyed model and that's what I think will set me apart in this competition.

The bus pulls into the driveway of the new house. The girls scream in excitement as they gaze upon it.


Therese Confessional: Our house is frigging sweet. It's so unique and so funky looking. It's not like your average upscale house. It has a little twist to it that's really cool.

Janice Confessional: The house kind of looks like a submarine. There's this nice aquatic feel to it that's so beautiful. People would kill to stay 1 night in this place and we get to live here? It's so surreal.

The girls get off the bus and run to explore their new home.

Ali: Oh my god!!!

Portia: Somebody pinch me because this can't be real right now.
Confessional: I live in a tiny 1 bedroom apartment where there's barely any room to move and now I'm staying in a humongous house like this? I can't believe it. I lost my home and most of my belongings during Hurricane Katrina and had to live in a homeless shelter for a while. To go from that to where I am now is such a blessing from God.

Melissa opens the door to a bedroom. Her jaw drops as she enters it.

Melissa: I'm calling this room right now!
Confessional: I'm extremely grateful for this opportunity. My life hasn't always been full of great things. My parents were killed in a car accident when I was a child and I still have scars from glass cutting me. I'm just thankful to be alive today and I really want to make the most of this because it could be my only chance to make it.

Lyra and Michelle enter a room and set their bags down. Lyra flops down on her bed.

Lyra: This is the life.

Michelle: You said it girl.

Lyra Confessional: This competition is my chance to explore the world the way I've never been able to explore it before. My father is a filmmaker and my whole life has been about trying to follow in his footsteps. I let work take over my life and I'm tired of living like that. It's time to do something for myself and stop taking everything so seriously.

Michelle sits a family picture up on the dresser.

Lyra: Is that your family?

Michelle: Yes. That's my husband and my little man. They're the reason I'm here today.

Lyra: It's great that you have such a strong motivation back at home.

Michelle Confessional: This isn't just a fun little experience for me like it is for a lot of the other girls. I'm here to create a better life for my family. My husband was laid off from his job and money is tight right now. Winning this competition would mean a new life for my husband and child. I'm going to do everything in my power to give them that.

Downstairs the girls are talking and getting to know each other. Candace and Imogene are having a drink and conversing.

Imogene: So what do you do back at home?

Candace: I'm a fashion student. I love making colorful, quirky outfits that stand out. I'm not a big fan of mainstream fashion. I like the more obscure, edgy designers. And you?

Imogene: My dad owns a 5 star hotel so I've never really had to worry about getting a job.

Candace: Oh wow.

Imogene: Yeah. I've always been interested in fashion and modelling but I never really went out of my way to pursue a career in it.
Confessional: I'm very green to modelling. I don't have any experience and while I have some fashion knowledge I feel like I'm behind most of the girls here. I'm 23 which is pushing the limit in the modelling industry but I think I have a unique look and hopefully my age won't be a factor.

Therese is sitting on the couch talking very loudly to the girls standing around her. Jacquelyn is seen getting annoyed.

Therese: I'm from New Jersey ok? We don't play up in there. When we want something we take it and damn it I'm going to take this!!

Jacquelyn Confessional: Therese is so obnoxious. I don't think she has a clue about how dumb she sounds when she's talking. She's gives off an attitude that I can not stand to be around and she's acting like she already has this in the bag. I'm ready to show her that that's not the case.

Therese: I mean I've been called every name in the book. I've been called a b**** and everything but I've accepted the fact that maybe I am 1. I don't really give a damn what people think of me.

Jacquelyn: So can I call you b****?

Therese: No you can not call me b****!!

Jacquelyn: Why not? You just said........

Therese: You don't even want to start with me girl! I ain't going to back down from you and you ain't going to call me a b**** to my face!

Jacquelyn: Ok. Whatever. You sound so ignorant right now but oh well.

Therese: Yeah whatever. Your *** calls me a b**** again and it won't be pretty.

Jacquelyn laughs as Therese walks off.

Therese Confessional: If Jacquelyn wants to start something with me all I can say is she better be prepared because I will get her 10 times harder. You don't want to mess with me. Especially when I know I'm in a competition. That's just something you don't do.

Zoey Confessional: We've been here 1 day and already people are fighting. I'm just like, really? If you have an opinion that's fine but screaming is not going to get the point across. There's a lot of immature girls in the house that's for sure.

Portia finds the Kris Mail.

Portia: Oh my god!! Kris Mail everybody!

-Welcome to the competition ladies. Tomorrow your chemistry will be tested in your 1st photo shoot. Love Kris.-

Ali: Chemistry with like male models or something?

Janice: Probably.

11-15-2010, 02:23 AM

Kris: Welcome to your 1st ever judging ladies. 13 of you have made it this far but only 12 will continue after tonight's elimination. At the end of this competition 1 of you will walk away with a contract with ModeL Management, a contract with Revlon and the cover of Fashion Icon magazine. Say hello to your judge and Model Mentor, Nancy Holden.

Nancy: Hi girls.

Girls: Hi!

Kris: For your 1st photo shoot you all posed with a sexy male model. Let's see how it went.

Kris: I love this photo. My eyes go straight to you and I barely even notice the male model. You have so much confidence here and there's the perfect amount of sexiness in your pose.
Nancy: You are a stunning girl and I love your natural confidence. You're not overdoing it and that's what I love about this shot. You did a terrific job.
Ali: Thanks so much!

Nancy: You have a very interesting look. I like the old Hollywood and sort of French vibe from you in this shot. You look regal and poised. There's not much chemistry between you and the male model but I do think you look nice here.
Kris: It's so couture and elegant. As an individual shot it completely works. I don't think it's right for this particular photo shoot but you definitely have great potential.

Kris: I love your youthful look here. That's really great because if I'm not mistaken you're 23 right?
Imogene: Yes.
Kris: You don't look it at all in this photo or in person. I see a fresh faced girl and I love your reserved pose.
Nancy: This photo is gorgeous. You have that dollish look that's very popular in fashion today. I'm not wowed by your pose but I like the simplicity of it. This picture completely works for me.

Nancy: It's not my cup of tea Jacquelyn. I find your pose to be too over the top and quite self indulgent. I don't think you paid any attention to the male model at all. It's just too much.
Kris: I have to agree I'm afraid. You are stunning and this picture proves that you have potential but there's no romance or chemistry with the guy at all. Your pose is strong but it doesn't work here.
Jacquelyn: Well hopefully I get a chance to redeem myself then.

Kris: You have a stunning face. You look like a classic starlet and I'm immediately compelled by your eyes here. The face is gorgeous. The pose is ok. A bit old fashioned but it sort of works for this romantic theme.
Nancy: I see a beautiful woman in this photo but I'm not sure I see a model. You are so classically pretty and your challenge is going to be bringing edge and intensity to that pretty face.

Nancy: I actually kind of like this shot. I like the shyness and the awkwardness of your pose. It adds something different to the photo. I don't think this is incredible but I do like it.
Kris: I feel a story behind this picture. Like you're the girl who has a crush on this guy but you're too shy to tell him. I think this is a really nice photo and I like that you added something unique to it.

Kris: Stunning! You look tall and glamorous and your face is so beautiful. This looks like a supermodel and her boyfriend who just stepped off the red carpet. I love it.
Nancy: You are drop dead gorgeous and you know how to work it in a photo. You have confidence and elegance and you're standing so tall and beautiful here.
Lyra: Thank you very much.

Nancy: It's a very beautiful and classic type of shot. I'm not really seeing a girl who could be a current supermodel. It feels more like an actress to me.
Kris: I see where the actress thing is coming from. You look really great in this photo but I feel that you are bringing too much of a dramatic feel to this photo and trying to stand out too much. It doesn't give me that vibe of a fashion model.
Melissa: Ok.

Kris: This is great Michelle. You are standing there working it with him and it looks like you 2 actually belong together. You both have that confidence and that attitude in your poses. You look stunning here.
Nancy: Your pose is just so confident and sexy. It's like BAM!! I love the strength in your eyes and the powerfulness of this whole shot. You look in control of the photo but you're not completely overshadowing the male model.

Nancy: It's a very pretty picture but it looks like a teen catalog photo. You are such a beautiful girl but I don't sense any connection between you and the male model. How old are you?
Mila: I just turned 18.
Nancy: That's why. You're not old enough to really have that strong chemistry with him so it's something you'll have to adapt to with experience. It's a nice photo but it's not what I'm looking for with this photo shoot.
Kris: I like this photo actually. It looks like a high school couple to me and I could definitely see this photo in a magazine. Something like Teen Vogue. It looks like the school jock and the cheerleader.
Nancy: But we're not looking for Beautiful's Next Top Cheerleader. We're looking for a high fashion model and I don't see that in this shot at all.

Kris: It's definitely the sexiest photo in the bunch in my opinion. You have this laid back confidence and sexiness to you that is so intriguing here. I love the strength in your facial expression.
Nancy: This is a really strong photo Portia. There's a confidence and a sexiness about you here but it's not overbearing. It's very subtle and that's what compels me to this picture.

Nancy: I do not like this photo at all. It looks like some 1960s disco singer who happens to be standing alongside a hot guy. There's no spark or chemistry between you 2 at all.
Kris: I think you look beautiful here but I also am not feeling a connection between you and the male model. Both of you are giving great poses but it just doesn't feel like it belongs together.

Kris: I'm not seeing a lot of energy in your face but I think your pose is very cute and you're the only girl who actually touched the male model. You're grabbing his hand and I do see the chemistry here.
Nancy: There's an innocence about you in this photo which is really endearing and interesting. I'm going to ask you a question. Are you a virgin?
Zoey: *blushes* Yes. I am.
Nancy: That's what it is. I can tell that you're shy and not completely comfortable around him but that's part of what makes this photo work for me.

Kris: Alright ladies. Nancy and I must now deliberate and when I call you back I will announce which 1 of you are heading home.

11-15-2010, 02:41 AM
Holy mother of Jesus... Lyra and Portia :zsnap

11-15-2010, 02:49 AM

Kris: 13 beautiful girls stand before me but I only have 12 photos in my hand. If your name is not called you must pack up your belongings and head home. Photo of the Week goes to...........................

Lyra! You looked so glamorous and sophisticated in your picture. Congratulations!!











Will Melissa and Jacquelyn please step forward?

Melissa, you are an extremely beautiful girl and we saw that in your photo this week. However what we didn't see was a girl with the potential to become a current top model. You came across as more of an actress than a model in your picture.

Jacquelyn, you are an undeniably talented model but we found your photo to be self indulgent and didn't feel that you connected with the male model at all. You tried to do too much with your pose and it distracted from the entire picture.

So which of you stays in this competition?

Jacquelyn. You have potential but you have to learn to work with the models and surrounding around you. It's not just about giving great poses.

Jacquelyn lets out a sigh of relief and steps forward to grab her picture.

Jacquelyn: Thank you.

Kris: Thanks Melissa.

Melissa: Well thank you so much for this opportunity. Bye guys!

Melissa waves goodbye and exits the room.

Melissa: It's the judges' decision and how they feel is how they feel so I can't change it. It kind of sucks to be the 1st 1 to go. I'm glad that I was even given this opportunity and even though it's over I still want to pursue modelling and I will work my butt off to do it.


11-15-2010, 02:52 AM
