    I also liked this season. They were all beautiful and I think the top 3 was good. I would have been happy if Natasha had won. 😮

  2. elyinsandiego Says:

    Anybody but Jaslene. What an ignorant (even her Spanish was bad), mean-spirited, unwholesome-looking

  3. Linda Says:

  11. Kiss Says:

    My fav episode of all was epi 6

  12. Tang Says:

    I love that Jaslene won, she has been the most professional so far, she NEVER complained about anything, all the girls cry when they get make overs, complain about cold/hot weather, cry about their boyfriends, everyones is so overdramatic, but she wasn’t there to vent her personal life or use her sad story to get simpaty and win like many others (she was abused by her boyfriend and never mentioned it while on the competition) she was there to model and worked her ass off, she took corrections and wasn’t arrogant and she wasn’t a bitch to the other girls, she deserved to win, period.

  13. Guy Says:

    Natasha was the best and the cutest.I totally love her.

  14. Jamaica Says:

    Jaslene overall was the best choice. Contrary to popular opinion, Samantha, Natasha, etc. weren’t and aren’t that great. Jaslene was simply the best. She has the most “wow” factor out of all of them.
