If you were confused by the final judging panel on America's Next Top Model last night, then you weren't alone. One of the girls was summarily disqualified with little explanation. What the hell happened, and is Facebook to blame?
OK, just so I don't go breaking my own rules on spoilers, I'm going to talk about who won and who was disqualified, so if Tyra's dog and pony show is still sitting in your DVR unwatched, then read no further.
Last night the three finalists of Pot Ledom: Top Model Backwards squared off to see who would be crowned the winner of the all-star season. We were down to Lisa D'Amato, my crazypants favorite; Alison Harvard, the girl with the big eyes, and Angelea Preston, 716 in da house! Preston was clearly judge André Leon Talley's favorite all season and since he has been selecting the winners as long as he's been a judge (or so it seems), Angelea had the competition in the bag. Except then she was disqualified for what seemed like no reason and Lisa was named the winner. This panel was more patently ridiculous than what we're used to from Tyra. It was crazier than one of her "motion editorials."
Here is what the CW said about the dis in a statement:
After production wrapped on the current cycle of America's Next Top Model, we learned information that made Angelea ineligible and she was subsequently disqualified from the competition. As a result, new scenes were filmed to address this for the audience during the finale.
Still a question wrapped inside an enigma covered over with a weave and given a make over. Speculation on the internet, and in People say that Anglea was the real winner of the show but that she bragged about it on her Facebook page before the show aired. When the production found out, they disqualified her for blabbing and called all the girls back in to refilm the finale. Now that had to be an awkward scene.
That will teach you people, not everything belongs on your damn wall! Angelea went crazy on Facebook and now she is no longer in the running to be America's Next Top Model. And congrats to Lisa....I guess, even though we all know now that she was really in second place.
