So which is it?
Is it the girl who has shone through all her challenges, impressed us despite our original doubts, but produced a final photo that shows no growth at all?
Or the girl who came in under the radar, and was impressive enough, but didn't always stand out?
I only have one photo in my hand.
Congratulations, Maranda! You are Candybar's Next Top Model. You win...well, nothing...but you have all the judges' sincere thanks for sticking out this looooooong process.
Caterina: We felt that you have shown amazing growth throughout this entire competition. You won five challenges! But somehow, we weren't feeling that growth in your final shot. It was so close; congratulations on getting this far. Thank you as well for staying around this entire time! Best of luck to you.
Maranda, if I had any talent in making icons or banners, there would be a shiny picture here. But I suck. Feel free to make yourself something fancy!
*confetti* *screams 'n' hugs*
