From a media release:
Tara’s Top Model Journey Comes to an End on Tonight’s Episode of CTV’s CANADA’S NEXT TOP MODEL
- Catch encore presentations on Star!/FT, MTV, and â€˜A’
- The next episode of CNTM airs on Tuesday, June 23 at 8 p.m. ET
Tara’s catwalk dreams came to an abrupt halt tonight on CTV’s CANADA’S NEXT TOP MODEL. The 19-year-old from Chateauguay, Quebec is the latest model hopeful to be eliminated from the competition.
Last week’s episode was the most-watched yet, with 828,000 viewers 2+. Up 26% compared to the previous week’s episode, CANADA’S NEXT TOP MODEL was second in its timeslot only to Game 6 of The Stanley Cup Playoffs. The episode was the #1 program with women 18-34 nationally as well as in Toronto and Vancouver.*
Tonight, it was all about the girls learning how to let their personalities shine. Canadian supermodel Irina Lazareanu was on hand with CNTM judge Mike Ruiz to draw charisma out of the girls at the challenge. Mousey Heather from Halifax stepped up and was the most dynamic and engaging. At their photo shoot, each girl had their mouth taped shut with duct tape and had to express all of their emotion through their eyes. And, while Tara’s body is undeniably incredible, she didn’t deliver the same range in her face. After two weeks of holding back in her shoots, the judges cut her loose. â€œMaybe I was just scared to express myself too much,â€ she said.
In next week’s all-new episode, premiering Tuesday, June 23 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV, the girls get media trained and then put their new training to the test at Toronto Fashion Week. Episode 5 of CANADA’S NEXT TOP MODEL finds the girls learning how to handle tough questions from two cheeky MTV personalities, Jessi Cruickshank and Dan Levy. Their media training is put to good use at Toronto Fashion Week and it becomes clear that two of the girls are neck and neck. And with another week, comes another photo shoot and another elimination. The six remaining finalists are put through the ringer and it’s up to host, Jay Manuel and the panel of judges â€“ FASHIONTELEVISION’s Jeanne Beker, supermodel Yasmin Warsame, Montreal native and A-List photographer Mike Ruiz â€“ to send home another aspiring supermodel.
Tune into ETALK tomorrow (Wednesday, June 17 at 7:30 pm ET) for the national broadcast exclusive with Tara after the judges sent her home.
