Cycle 3

Cycle 3 was actually the only cycle where the statistically strongest competitor (Eva) won the competition, with a 3.182 average call-out placement. However, it should be noted that Amanda actually had the most #1 photos, and had never even been in the bottom 2 until her final three elimination — pretty impressive, if you ask me. Yaya, who was the runner-up had the most challenge wins, with an impressive five total.

That does not mean that this cycle was without its injustices, however. For some unknown reason, Kristi, Julie, and Jennipher were eliminated before the much-weaker and constantly-at-the-bottom Kelle, and Nicole, despite her strong pictures, was eliminated before Norelle and Ann, who were statistically weaker. Hmmmm….

Cycle 4

Cycle 4 was one of two cycles where there were really two possible winners. The top two in each were exactly tied statistically in regards to their call-up order. In Cycle 4, those two were Naima and Kahlen. Although Naima won, Kahlen had more #1 photos, and had never been in the bottom 2 until the final three.

This cycle was also rather messed-up in regards to who got sent home when. Michelle hung in there, despite having mediocre scores for her photos, while stronger competitors Rebecca, Tiffany, and Tatiana were sent home. In episode 10, the stronger Christina was sent home and the weaker Brittany continued on, only to be eliminated in the next round.

Cycle 7

Here’s where I skip ahead to Cycle 7, the final of the three cycles (out of nine, mind you) where the winners actually statistically deserved to win. The top two, CariDee and Melrose actually were statistically tied, which is probably why the end of this season was so suspenseful. Both had an average call-up order of 3.36, and each had three #1 photos. Melrose had more challenge wins (four total), but I for one have no complaints about CariDee winning, especially since it was so close.

There were, however, some frustrating eliminations during that cycle. Jaeda and Eugena hung on for far too long, while other, statistically stronger competitors such as Brooke and AJ were eliminated far too early. With AJ’s 3rd, 5th, 1st, 3rd, and 9th place photos, she averaged a 4.2 call-out placement, which actually places her as third statistically after CariDee and Melrose. I really believe that if she had not been eliminated so early (episode 6), she could have won the competition.
