So Melrose continues to steadily advance on ANTM. I thought for sure that the twins would be gone by now but they do photograph well in certain editorial fashion shots. Beyond that, I don’t see either one of them having much commercial appeal. Among the remaining contestants, Melrose is by far the most marketable. Even more so than cycle six’s Danielle Evans. As some may recall from my last blog about Melrose, I had some insider tip regarding the outcome of the cycle 7. Although I do not know the eventual outcome, a slip of the tongue from a well placed insider leads me to believe that Melrose may have prevailed. This conclusion is based on a comment that Melrose is currently under contract for a year. I don’t know all the inner workings of how the show does their contracts but I don’t believe the losers are under any kind of contract if they get booted. I wouldn’t be surprised if she does win as she gets stronger with every episode and if you watch carefully, all the animosity from the other contestants comes down to their jealousy over her strong performance from week to week. Of course with Monique gone, the producers have to try their best to find a new villain so they will edit the show as best they can to depict Melrose as the one to hate.
