America’s Next Top Model 5 concludes tonight

The fifth cycle of America’s Next Top Model concludes tonight on UPN at 8 p.m. ET. Remaining in the competition after unexplained elimination after unexplained elimination are Bre, Nicole, and Nik.

For some fan reaction to the final three, we head over to the Livejournal topmodel community, where there’s some spirited debate and enriching discussion about what may happen tonight. Some confuse what they want to happen with what may happen, such as this commenter, who writes, “I think that the final two are going to be Nik and Bre just because. I can’t stand Nicole.”

Many are discussing TV Guide’s potential spoiler; will the final two be who TV Guide suggested they were? At least one commenter in the Livejournal topmodel community isn’t, you might say, very happy with that possibility (potential final two spoiler, so stop reading if you don’t want to know):

“this HAS to be fake. there’s no way that after so many strong weeks Nik isn’t in the top two. if bre is even in the top two, i swear on my Razr i’ll throw my tv so far out my fuckin window, it’ll hit that ugly donkey faced raspy voiced short rude bitchy crazy piece of shit right in the fuckin face. thats how mad i am!”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
