The Giants Win the Pennant! The Giants Win the Pennant!

Perhaps Jaslene's win isn't as historically significant, but when they showed her winning face on that screen tonight, I felt as giddy as a Giants fan in 1951.

The girls I pick as my faves never seem to win so I spent the entire season rooting and cheering for our delightful cha-cha diva, worried at every turn that she might be eliminated.

Mother knows best though and since she has never failed to pick a Top Model winner, I should have trusted what she said two weeks ago. I was at her house in NY when Brittany's go-see debacle aired. My mother thought Brit was the girl with the most model potential, but when Brit got the boot, I shouted out, "Mom, your pick just got canned! Who's gonna win now?!" Mom walked over to the TV, paused momentarily, surveyed the remaining girls, and said, "Ahhhh, that one," pointing to Jaslene, "That girl you like."

For the record, Mom did not like Natasha one bit so I shouldn't have worried, but when Tyra thought that Natasha was stronger on the runway (NOT!), I got a bit nervous. But of course my kicky Jaslene pulled it out, and BROKE IT DOWN. A-freakin'-men!!

Until next season, you are ALL in the running towards becoming the next top model!

And as for me, I'm home for now but have a few more trips to take so my posting will still be a bit scarce, but I should be settled down just in time for the Top Chef premiere...get those knives unpacked!!

I'm so glad that you are back and still in the running towards becoming America's Next Top Model! I'm also glad Jaslene won. They kept us guessing--I thought for sure Renee's transformation montage meant she would be in the final two. Just as long as Natasha didn't win. (What was up with Twiggy's blind affection for her? She talked about her like they hung out all the time. As if.) Anyway, now all we have to worry about is Jordin vs. that beatboxing idiot... xxxooo a

Perhaps Twiggy was just bonding with her fellow Euro, although clearly Twiggy never saw the footage of Natasha practically tonguing her cell phone or she might have changed her mind about Nata's seemingly endearing personality. I was strangely saddened when Renee got the boot but as she did look years older than Nat and Jas, despite being a year younger than the other mommy, it didn't look good for her. All is looking fantabulous for Jaslene though!!
