Hey Everyone! What a wonderful first week for Cycle 5: Old vs. New!! I am so proud of each and every model and literally, and I am not even kidding, any of you could have gone on to win this competition. It was so tough to narrow it down and make such a huge cut right off the bat!

First of all I just want to say that I will not be posting Weekly MelsModels on SMW. I know this is disappointing, but I can't because of my busy schedule. Randomly, though, I will use a post on SMW as a prize for the winner of a task! Maybe every third task or so! So stay tuned for that!

I also wanted to say that clubklo did not complete the task this week, but she is not being eliminated due to a reasonable excuse. Instead she will have to create a scenery for task 1 and task 2 when she returns to stardoll, and then she may be allowed to move on or possibly be eliminated at that time.

.....Now, the callout order:

1. liajm- Congratulations!! You are the winner this week and your scenery will be featured on the homepage of the club! Your scenery wowed all the judges and you really showed all the contestants, old and new, that you are a huge threat. You showed a commercial yet very fashionable version of the word "new" and you put a smile on all of our faces! Keep it up!

1. xxlovexx- You had a great concept and strong voice this week, but your scenery ultimately didn't show the ideas you had as nicely as you could have. We also thought your scenery contradicted your theme and was going in a different direction than you intended it to.

2. musta47- You had so many interesting and intriguing ideas, but that was your downfall! You couldn't edit and tried adding in everything you thought of, which ultimately made your scenery confusing and your medoll drown in her surroundings.

3. blueberry-dream- Your concept was very interesting and we thought that your styling was nice, but it was very forgettable and your scenery didn't convey the word "new" without reading the concept. We know your personal taste is much stronger, so we also weren't sure if you were putting everything you had into the task.

4. Starsyd3333- Your scenery came across a bit 'cartoonish' and wasn't very realistic. Your medoll didn't come off as a model, but she looked like a character. We were just expecting a more refined scenery, but we admire the risk.

5. misz_paparazzi- Your concept was very cute and your scenery was memorable, but it didn't really work compared to the other sceneries. The overall feel and work to the scenery wasn't the neatest, but it still had a strong voice which we enjoyed.

6. I-Love-Pigs- Your scenery was one of the sceneries that was the most forgettable. The concept wasn't very clear in your scenery, and the styling made your medoll look like a character and not so much a model. She almost got lost in the props. We do know your capable of more and think it was just a bad week.

7. worldstopmodel- Your scenery was missing an explanation and that might have saved you from the bottom. We know you were having problems with commenting, but we really enjoyed the ambitious pose you chose to do, we just didn't understand the point to the scenery since you didn't really explain.

xxlovexx, musta47, blueberry-dream, misz_paparazzi, I-Love-Pigs

This was one of the hardest eliminations EVER! You guys are all so beautiful in so many ways and please do not think that this is the SLIGHTEST indication that you aren't as good as the rest. It is just a matter of experience. If you all practice and keep with this, you can come back and win! I am not kidding. Each and every one of you could have won this, it was just a matter of experience and timing. Please do not give up on yourselfs as individuals, me, the judges, or the club! Stay active and keep in touch! You all will be missed!

starsyd3333- Your passion saved you. Everyone could see that you have what it takes to the top and that you desperately want this, but we need to see a model. It is okay to have a personality like a cute cartoon, but you have to be able to transform in your sceneries.

worldstopmodel- This was very very VERY close, the judges and myself know that you can do more but you really have to step it up. We need more dedication because in your callback you were one of the best at sticking out from the pack, but now it seems like your lost your drive! You need to concentrate on showing us you care with confidence and a powerful concept and explanation next week.

***Congratulations to the Final Fifteen!! The next task will be posted on Friday, January 28th!!

Hey Everyone! First of all I just have to say that literally every single audition and callback from everyone was insanely impressive and this was probably one of the hardest initial decisions that the judges and myself have ever had to make in MelsModels history. It is always so tough, and it is crazy that I am someone who is eliminating others, I don't even feel worthy. Just know that there is a place for all of you, even if you don't make it into this competition. This isn't the end and I would be blessed if you all stayed active and continued to audition and be a part of MelsModels.

The judges this cycle are going to be Myself (Bluegreen86), Kris (Siamesecatlover), Blair (Itgonnarain), and Kasia (Undamyumbrellla)! This is going to be an exciting cycle, and I plan to include many guest judges throughout the tasks.

Without further are the 20 finalists of MelsModels Cycle 5~ Old vs. New (In no particular order):



CONGRATULATIONS ! ! ! ! ! You are the twenty finalists who will be competing to be Melanie's Next Top Model! I am so excited about this extremely talented group filled with potential. Some of the judges' old favorites are back with a lot on the line. They want it bad, so all the new girls have to step up their game in order to stick around!

***For your first task I want each and every one of you to create a club scenery depicting an assigned word. If you are an old MelsModels contestant (in green above) then I want you to convey the word "Old", and if you are a fresh face (in yellow above) I would like you to portray the word "New". There are only six old contestants, which means that all the new girls have to really step it up to stick out. This is perfect because the old contestants already have an established reputation, so we want to see how you compare to the rest of the pack before you 'mix'! I am very excited about this task, and I hope you all enjoy it!

When creating your scenery, be sure you think about what the word "old" or "new" really means to you, don't just show a new car or an old house try to make your medoll become the word and really have fun with it! Think carefully about your pose, styling, and concept!

** This task is important because five girls will be eliminated to narrow the group down to 15. Good Luck Models!!!!!

* Your deadline for this task is Sunday, January 23rd !!! (NOT 16th! SORRY FOR CONFUSION!!)
