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!”

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
