America’s Next Top Model Cycle 16 has been switching things up all season long, so why should the finale be any different? For the first time in ANTM history, Brittani takes a big stumble in the make-it-or-break-it runway walk–but is that enough to send her home without the top prize?
While both Brittani and Molly have had stellar photos all season long on America’s Top Model, Molly has received more first call-outs, four to Brittani’s one. But both have twice landed in the ANTM Cycle 16 bottom two.
Yet, photos aren’t the only factor. Personality is too. While Brittani has struggled more than once–particularly with the infamous throwdown with Alexandria–she comes off as much more bubbly and nice (for the most part).
As for Molly, she’s been struggling with her anger issues, as well as how often she complains on the America’s Next Top Model set. Yet, host Tyra Banks tosses that issue off by saying that Molly has dealt with a lot in her life, like adoption and abandonment issues. But isn’t Alexandria’s attitude on set, one of the reason she was sent home on the “Daniella Issa Helayel” episode? Apparently, Tyra doesn’t care about Molly and her complaining.
Brittani has an interesting story/background too–she grew up in a trailer park–but the season has focused much more on Molly’s past. After all, Tyra loves a good story, and it seems like Molly has become the chosen one, at least since Brittani’s meltdown in the “Eric Daman” episode. In fact, until that meltdown, it seemed Brittani could do no wrong in the eyes of Tyra Banks. But that, obviously, sure changed fast.
Will Brittani be able to beat Molly? That’ll be hard to do, especially considering their CoverGirl photos. Molly’s can be seen here, and Brittani’s here. It’s hard to not picture the ANTM judges saying Brittani looks lost in the eyes… but does Molly look too old? (And mean?)
Then there’s the matter of Brittani falling in the runway show, which can be seen in the sneak peek video below.
Chances are, Molly is taking home the top prize.
The America’s Next Top Model Cycle 16 finale airs at 9PM Eastern on the CW Wednesday, May 18, 2011.
