THE ELYSE INDIE AWARD OF THE WEEK
SURPRISE! Elyse just misses winning the prize four weeks in a row for the reason that her eligible criteria -- enjoying the fireworks that Adrianne instigates with Robin re: meta hybridized character/viewer -- has been used before.
So, who's going to pick up the award if it isn't Elyse?
At the risk of trivializing what happened to her in the last episode of ANTM (e.g. nearly getting fingered by a stranger on the streets of Paris), I'll give it to her for how messy she looked in her go-sees -- claustrophobic bangs and ill-cut dress in all, which projected a lack of confidence on her part and which nearly deep-sixed her run to "becoming America's next top model." In clear terms, she wins for uglying herself up!
