Anyone watching? What dp you think? I'm.not sure that I'll stick with it yet, but will give it another week.

Ooh me! I LOVED IT! but I also love the Kardashians so obviously not exactly an arbiter of high brow tv.

Naomi Campbell is amazing and terrifying in equal measure.

Britain's Next Top Model is my guilty pleasure so I enjoyed this. Thought Naomi was super-irritating and Erin just lovely. Oh, and the blonde one?? No wonder she didn't get any girls until they obviously jigged it - if you were a young wannabe with the choice of Naomi, Erin, or The Other One, which would you choose?!

Who was 'the other one"? Other than annoying?! One of the girls, the 'posh' one did my nut in, maybe because she kept saying how posh she was,.when she umm wasn't confused

Actually I don't think I know who Erin is either, but she seemed lovely. (I'm not big on fashion, and often watch the girls on BINTM squeal when theu meet someone and think "who the hell is that?)

I'm another guilty ANTM fan and I LOVED The Face! Proper supermodels, Naomi is hilarious with her note pads and drill sergeant thing, Erin is super cool and I have no idea who the other one is....

I love it but I am also a BNTM junkie. Team Erin for me!

Anyone watch it last night? I was quite shock I know these things are very manipulated but it seemed very unfair on that poor girl.

All good TV. Naomi is very funny. I expect she is worse in real life. But she is right. She has/had her career and was at the very top of her game so these young girls bickering and arguing with each other needs to be pointed out.

Whether they should be dictated to by Campbell who is famous for being a diva, late, stroppy and has anger management issues is another thing!

Erin is lovely though and so elegant and refined. Think the removal of one of the girls by Caroline was all set up though.

If so, I hope the girl involved knew from the outset as it was a bit brutal. I didn't even think the winning pic was the best.

Naomi is still irritating me but some of the stuff she was saying about having to deal with people who may not like you, and how to cope with that, I thought was pretty sound. I can get that she's a great model, although I'd rather look at pictures of Erin than of her. The Other One is just bland.

I was v impressed that they got Ellen von Unwerth (sp?)!

(I really should get out more!)

ps my very lovely niece (definitely a Team Erin type) was approached to audition for this, but you had to be 18 (she's 17). She said she wasn't tempted anyway, thank god; 'tis a meat market.

I'm enjoying it! But yes, last night was brutal.

But you world get rid of the competition wouldn't you?!

imnotwhoyouthinkiam Wed 09-Oct-13 10:56:10

I wasn't sure what to make after week one, but I liked it this week. I know it was brutal, but the modelling world is!
I was amazed that Caroline won, I didn't think her team were great, and while she picked the girl to boot out due to a personal grudge, she also picked the better girl and therefore eliminated the competition.
I don't think I like Naomi, she's a bit, umm dunno, can't explain it!

Imnot - umm Naomi - stroppy, full of her own self importance, world revolves around her. Only interested in her own views. Beautiful looking, wonderful skin and has had some great work done. But unlucky in love. At 40+. So in life, you cannot have everything.

rubyflipper Wed 09-Oct-13 11:09:35

I think Naomi would be a loyal friend - but a terrifying enemy. I wouldn't like to be on the wrong side of her - like poor Tyra Banks when she started modelling. Naomi didn't like the idea of another top black model on the scene and basically had Tyra fired from a lot of shows.

Yes, I spent too much of the 90s reading trashy mags! grin

googlyeyes Wed 09-Oct-13 13:19:35

I've loved every single second of this show. I see no problem with the fact that my favourite programme has segued seamlessly from Breaking Bad to this!

1chocolatetart Wed 09-Oct-13 17:35:14

Ooh I didn't know that ruby!
I don't think it is very fair though, how the girls are kicked off. I would personally, prefer to see the best girl wn, not get booted off because she's a threat!

handcream Wed 09-Oct-13 18:10:26

Naomi has come out recently saying there arent enough black models!

I do think she is fine with it just being here though!

handcream Wed 09-Oct-13 18:18:11

here = her!

imnotwhoyouthinkiam Thu 10-Oct-13 10:31:23

handcream that's exactly the words I couldnt find!

1chocolate no its not fair, but if they kicked off the worst one it wouldn't really be any different to BINTM. And to be honest, I'd kick off my strongest competition too!
