New Zealand’s Next Top Model Season 3, Episode 2.
(Warning – this post contains higher than usual levels of Pigalina life stories).
As I have been a little slow in updating this I had already accidentally seen who is eliminated in this episode before watching it. I must say I was surprised – let’s see how it came to be.
First, let me say how upset I am that the theme toon has changed! I loved the old one. The new one has someone muttering something that sounds like “models” and is otherwise non-descript. The opening credits has all of the girls walking around in a shower of bling and diamonds and getting their photos taken.
The girls all moved into their apartment and apparently they “had to” scream because they were so excited. They screamed lots. Free stuff for everyone, jewellery, clothes, phone, make-up. Then – SHOCK – there is a strange girl in the hot tub. Turns out that she is Holly who is the wildcard winner – she was chosen by the public to be in the competition. Bianca said that they were all prepared to hate her until they realised she is awesome, so that was lucky for Holly.
Makeover time! (The past few times that I have been to the Hairdresser I have asked them to Top Model makeover me and, without fail, I end up with a couple of highlights – which they do under my top layer of hair because they know I will be slack with maintainence – and a few layers. Every. Single. Time.).
At the hairdressers Colin was looking fly but Sara was wearing a fat ladies Royal Wedding souvenir t-shirt and a leopard cardi. The hairdresser man looked like a scruffy I.T technician (no offense to mah I.T nerds intended <3). (*Pigalina Tangent* Another pronunciation peeve of mine then occurred – see the last post for more – Sara said that they were all glad to have Holly HERE then said – speaking of HAIR… They are not the same word!! There is an awful ad on the radio at the mo that rhymes bear with rear and gear. Getting angry just thinking about it).
Anyway, I digresss. Everyone seemed pretty happy even Issy who has a huge shaved bit. Except for Tyne who said her hair was her identity and told Colin she felt ugly and like a boy. Yanna post make-over reminds me of Samantha Morton (growing her hair back after Minority Report).
Photoshoot time – Advertising Magnum Temptation Ice-Creams. My friend Belinda was not impressed by this shoot commenting that she thought it was poorly done. I can see what she meant – the make-up for most people was ick. Everyone was dressed like some kind of Austin Powers extra posing next to a swimming pool with a Magnum (I have 2 more Pigalina stories, this time about Magnum ice-creams. Scroll to the bottom if you care). Lots of chocolatey teeth followed. AJ prepared some lines “Even models give into temptation. Have a Magnum Temptation.” She missed the fact that it was not a TV ad – though good initiative.
Elimination time – Colin said Rosanagh’s photo was awful. AJ cried (and she hadn’t yet seen her no-eyes photo “Your face was a shambles”). She cried again when not eliminated. Aminah was “disappointing”. Arihana’s photo was fabulous. The judges all went crazy for Holly’s photo. While the judges deliberated the 3 men hated Rosanagh’s picture but Sara liked it. Yanna had “so many [good] shots”. Aminah’s attitude was a concern (Eh?!) and was trying too hard. Bianca was “reveling in her insecurity” and hunched. Hillary only had one good photo. Holly – Cheesy girl next door.
Top this week was Yanna. Bottom two were Aminah and Briana. I have no idea why these two were in the bottom two apart from Aminah’s photo – but that was the awful make-up’s fault. They only thing that they had said about Briana’s photo was that she looked old. From what was discussed previously it should have been old one-shot Hillary or awful-photo-so-say-all-of-us Rosanagh. Even Sara seems to have been clutching for ideas as to why they are out because the explanation that she gave each of them was weak.
Aminah was eliminated and I am SHOCKED! Mistake NZNTM. Mistake.
Brigette, Amber, Aroha, Brianna, Yanna, Arihana, Bianca, Rosanagh,
Aminah, Hilary, AJ, Tyne, Issy and Holly.

(*Pigalina & Magnum Ice-Cream stories* – When I went to St Tropez with my family Daddy Pigalina was shocked that my White Chocolate Magnum worked out to cost about ₤5 – which equates to around $15NZ! Then, one day when I was 11 me and a few friends, for some reason I cannot remember, went to town with our favourite teacher Ms Farrell. She said we could have an ice-cream. Guess which Magnum addicted child chose the most expensive ice-cream in the shop…)
P.P.S. Daddy Pigalina choo-choo-chooses Arihana too!
