Lisa Eliminated from UPN's "America's Next Top Model"

[via press release from UPN]

LISA ELIMINATED FROM UPN'S "AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL"

Lisa, an assistant wardrobe stylist from Los Angeles, became the eighth girl eliminated from the fifth cycle of UPN's hit series AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL, reducing the pool from six girls to five.

During a session with "Entertainment Tonight" correspondent Kevin Frazier, the girls learned the importance of portraying a model-like image while in public. Kevin provided the girls with tips on how to handle themselves amongst paparazzi. Lisa seemed grateful for the advice. "I appreciate it a lot because I'm really uninhibited, so I'd probably get in a lot of trouble," she said.

Arriving in London, the girls met with J. Alexander who took them on a double-decker bus tour around the city. As the girls approached their hotel, they found themselves surrounded by paparazzi furiously snapping their photographs. While many of the girls tried to practice the tips they had recently learned, Lisa seemed to have a hard time dealing with the intensity of the crowd and trudged toward the hotel with her head completely covered.

Jay Manuel greeted the girls the next morning at the scene of their photo shoot, where all 6 girls were crammed into a phone booth covered by not much more than a tabloid paper. Lisa felt that although she enjoyed being the center of attention, she would do equally well sharing the spotlight.

During the week's elimination ceremony, the judges viewed each girl's worst photograph from their surprise paparazzi ambush and their photo booth shot. Although Lisa's photographs were amazing and her desire to become a model was apparent, some of the judges were put off by her outrageous personality, feeling it was becoming "cocky." "Lisa is the spunky girl, the girl with so much energy, the girl with so much fire. It's great, but it's too much," said Tyra to Lisa before eliminating her from the competition.

The winner of UPN's AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL will have the opportunity to be managed by Ford Models. She will also receive a $100,000 contract with cosmetics giant CoverGirl. The winner will additionally appear in a fashion spread in Elle magazine and on the cover of ELLEgirl magazine.

The fifth installment of UPN's hit dramality series AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL follows 13 young women as they attempt to prove they have what it takes to make it in the high-stress, high-stakes world of modeling. Banks, who created the show, also serves as executive producer along with Ken Mok ("Making the Band") and Anthony Dominici ("The Amazing Race").

AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL airs Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on UPN. For more information about AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL log on to www.upn.com.
