This week’s e-mail said that we would be working with someone or something that may not understand what we have to say. I was thinking we might be working with someone who spoke a different language or something. But it ended up being an animal that we were going to be working with. I was so excited for this shoot because this is totally my element. I live around a few farms and ranches so I feel like I’m at home.
I got paired up with a horse and I’m so happy because I love horses! They are so gentle and calm. The horse I was working with was absolutely beautiful and was super easy to work with. The photographer gave great direction and at the end of the day I feel very good about the shoot. The next day, Nicole came and gave us our books. My picture turned out good for the most part. I’m not sure if it was the best out of the bunch but I’m happy with it. I just hope the judges like it. That really is the only thing that matters.
The runway for this week was all about the country rich folk. I’m excited about this catwalk because the clothes are very sophisticated. However, after I walked and was in front of the judges, there was a little bit of mixed opinions about how I did. One of the judges said I was his favorite and the others called me too sexy. Which is shocking because I’ve never really been called sexy before. In the end, I was in the bottom two, and Colin was sent home. I’m still kind of shell-shocked. But maybe this is what I needed to push me even further. That’s exactly what I’m going to do next week … work and try even harder than ever before because everyone thinks I’m going home next week. My goal is to blow everyone’s shoes off and prove that I do belong here.
I'm really confused. Last year, the show had all kinds of crazy sexual shoots with the models only in skimpy underwear pretending to have sex, and catwalks where they paired up with another model and kissed and spanked each other and the judges sat there and laughed about it!!! Yet they continue to tell you you're too sexy?! I agree with another viewer who said your pics and catwalks are rated G in comparison!!! It's almost like after one judge voiced their opinion about you being too sexy, everyone else just took it and ran with it and now they're all against you and that's all they talk about. I don't get it.
Amanda i totally loved ur pic and ur catwalk i was shocked on how you started it the pose you did was awesome, so far it was great, you and jonathan are may favorites. i dont really understand why jordan is so jelous about you... well i know why cuz ur way better than her, btw w t f with her bone hips, anyway just ignore her. hope you win the show and best wishes for you and ur son. your beautiful and being sexy is not a bad thing!!!
i love you amanda!! im such a huge fan! omg, like, im really hoping you and gabe are still together... u guys are soo cute!
Don't let the others bring you down. Your photos and catwalk are great. I didn't agree with the judges assesment of you photo on the horse. It was fabulous. I have a horse and to me that is just showing your love for the beauty of the horse. Good luck and keep positive. Vicki Miller
You keep going girl!! You seem to be one of the two people that aren't trying to be fake. Course I'm not very knownledgeable about the ins and outs of the fashion industry, but in all photos, you put the rest to shame, women wise. Just remember, you went to Montreal and walked the catwalk, who else has? Anyway, Keep the faith casue I'll be rooting for you. Lawrence
Hey Amanda, I live in Ny and I have been watching. You're my favorite. You seem very in touch with you emotions which is a good thing, and i think that you should not let the negative comments from the judges bring you down, use them to enahnce yourself. Be cool calm and confident on your next shoot and really bring it, I am so rooting for you. just to let you know Jordan is so threatened by you that is why she is always wishing you would go home, she sounds so ignorant when she says that on the show. I wish you the best. Think positive and try some mediation before your shoot to get your mind into the theme of it. Remeber your brain controls your body and if you get in the right mind set your body will follow through and so will your soul. Michelle
You were fine, jeans are suppose to be sexy... I think Maggie is just a b! Jordan is just one of those mean girls like in school... Keep strong!
Seriously girlllllllllllllll - your time is up. I wish they would have kept Colin over you. You are soooooooo annoying.
So the only thing I agree with said by the judges is that you are a sexy girl, but seriously it's really annoying how they're holding that against you. You're not "too sexy" like they keep saying, and I really don't get why it seems like a lot of the people on the show are out to get you. You're one of my faves, and the judges are really not giving you enough credit at all. I personally think you have one of the best walks, and your photos are really good too. You're not "too sexy", seriously, they need to chill with that comment. You're also one of the realest people in the house, which is a plus. Just bring the heat extra hard next week, I'm rootin for you
Amanda - I think you have a really great attitude about the competition. So far, you have done nothing to be ashamed of which is impressive for reality TV! I admire you for being a strong mom also. Keep up the good work!
I do have to agree with the last photo shoot you just did as you didn't have alot of variety in your shots it was all sex with the horse. Listen to what the judges say and give them what they want as I beleive you do have what it takes.. The other females are against you so show them up.. You can do it....
I think Amanda is great! I design clothing and she is the only one I would work with out of this group. I absolutely love her look!
Amanda you are a total inspiration. I know that you can do it. The judges obviously believe in you they don't show it, but they really do. You are the only one that is worth of that title of "Supermodel". I mean you've got a baby, and you are working hard to give you child a nice lifestyle. You know what you got, we know what you are capable of and you are going to show to those judges that you are worthy of being a supermodel. The others will try to do anything to weaken you, it's a compettion, and you pose the greatest threats. It's time that you eliminate Jordan from this competition.
I loved your photo shoot. How can they say "too sexy?" The photographer tells you how to pose, you do it, and then they criticize? They had you in a very sexy outfit. With your looks and figure, you could look "too sexy" just standing there!! They are giving you a raw deal on this one. Looking for something to "hate." Anyway, good luck! Even if you don't win this, you are going to have a great career, hon. Love ya in California.
amanda - i don't know if you actually read this, but here goes... i watch every episode at least three times, i love it! the remaining girls in the competition are all my favs and i hate to see any of them go! but i must say, i have loved all of your pics and your catwalk is beautiful! favorite shoot so far was the mirror one. i don't agree with the judges about you being "too sexual" - i honestly think they're crazy. just keep up the good work and do your best, despite the opposition.
Everyone is giving you props because your are likable and take beautiful photos, but I do understand what the judges mean. Modeling is like acting-you have to be able to fulfill different roles, looks, and styles. You have to mold to their needs only. If they want you to be smart then be smart-you don't have to be sexy librarian. You have an appeal that most of the other girls don't-you're good looking OFF the camera/photos. I'd walk past most of them and not even think to comment. Remember that. That can hurt you in this competition.
The only way to "win" over those catty judges is to not be afraid to smile and nod and play the game. Your eyes are always downcast and non-blinking when you are critiqued. Look up,girl! If you don't have hope and confidence doing your work, no one else will believe in you!
p.s. You don't have to comment on what you're doing by touching props or accenting collars,etc.at the end of your walk. Believe that you are enough! I'm an actor, and that's a common mistake for newbie actors!
I just finished watching tonight's episode, the nude shoot, and you said you were naked around your son sometimes so that he won't be gay? Seriously? I know you said no offense, but that was just a rude comment. Do you really think people choose whether or not they are gay or straight? It's definitely not a choice. I'm pretty sure you lost a lot of fans tonight.
Amanda, You are one of my favorite models (and not just because we have the same name!), but because you take criticism like a lady and you carry yourself with class unlike some of the others in the competition (namely Jordan). Keep on doing what you're doing because you have a lot of fans out there who care about you and want you to succeed!
Amanda, I actually was a fan of yours however your ignorance was out in the open this week. Sometimes you need to know who your fans are and considering that there are a ton of gay people that watch this show, it is amazing to me that you would let an ignorant comment slip out of your mouth. My mother may not have wanted a gay son but she got one and it took years for her to change your attitude. I am not saying I want your son to be gay but if he is I hope you can work on your attitude and realize that there a ton of gay men out there that you would be lucky to have as a son. Best of luck!
It is appaling that a model who is so openly homophobic would be attempting to work in the fashion industry!
I was offended by your comment about not wanting your son to be gay. I hope you will love him whatever his sexuality happens to be...if you think parading around naked in front of him will have some bearing on his sexuality, then you really need to educate yourself on this subject.
I know this comment refers to this weeks show, but it is the only place I could find to leave a message. Are you kidding about your gay comment? I know you are from a small town, but that doesn't mean you need to be ignorant. You catch a cold. You don't catch being gay. Don't worry, someone isn't going to rub up against your son and make him gay. He also isn't going to become gay because he isn't exposed to naked woman, much less seeing his mom naked. If your son is going to be gay, he already is, and there isn't anything you can do about it, except love him for the man he will become.
Really? You walk around naked so your son won't be gay? And, you say "no offense". Well, for all gays, and many straights your comment was not only offensive it was ignorant. You can't turn your son gay, straight or purple. The only thing that will happen by strutting around in your nothingness is either an Oedipus complex or scars that will last forever.
I actually thought I was crazy and hearing things when you said that you are often naked around your son, "No offense" so that he won't become gay. HAHAHAHAHA! I couldn't wait to til my husband walked into the room to tell him. There are so many things OBVIOUSLY wrong about that ignorant statement. It makes me sad for your son that he is being raised by someone like you. What a tragedy! I think that not many gay people can be offended when someone as dense as you makes such a comment. What nonsense! If you think gays are gross, you should look at yourself, you want your son to be attracted to YOUR body...now THAT'S sick!
