    I hated cycle 5 so much. It wasn’t fair. This cycle was the year of potential. So when the people who could actually model got one bad photo they sent that person home and kept someone with potential. Which is the whole reason Nicole won and Bre stayed so long.

  2. Alex Says:

    A lot of the girls in this cycle are actually stunningly beautiful!

  3. Scarlett Says:

    So happy that Nicole won! I loved her.

  9. Danielle Stewart Says:

    Cycle five was pure crap. Lisa lost for having too much personality,
    WHICH DOESN’T EVEN MAKE SENSE. I almost didn’t watch the show again until the All-Stars cycle, when Lisa DAID WIN. Yay For Lis!
