    Say what you will about Ms. Tyra Banks, but in 15 cycles she has not and will not EVER let anything like this happen. Talk about an EPIC failure. I guess AusNTM is going to have a new hostess! =)

  2. 2

    I feel really bad for the runner up (the one who thought she won) but the hosts face as she was getting the news was priceless.

    I'm an Australian and I watched it live, and it was insane! It wasn't Sarah's fault though she was doing her job, it was the stupid person who read it to her wrong. How could you muck up so bad! INSANE! Kelsey, the girl who didn't actually win, is getting compensation for it though which is good. They're giving her 25, 000 and an all expenses paid trip to New York.

    This is so obviously not Sarah's fault, she is the Executive Producer of the show and will no doubt be horrified by this. Whoever read it to her needs to be fired stat!! And say what you want about the OZ version- at least it has produced a world class winner (Alice Burdeu) and that Sarah isn't afraid of doing live tv, unlike Tyra!

    omg, i feel so embarrassed for her! hahaha
    but the girl who ended up losing handled it REALLY well.
    hope the person who made the mistake gets fired, this is a MAJOR fail

    funny - I don't recall a winner other than Jaslene (on USA ANTM) that could work the runway like the girl that really won did………..

    The girl in the red is beautiful btw and sure can walk!

    That was an epic train wreck. I wanted to look away but I couldn't. Holy wow. I feel so bad for the other girl the winner come loser, but on the flipside that was awkwardly funny because the loser come winner had no idea how to react. LOL She was like 'Uuuh.. should I be happy and celebrate?' cus it would have been like throwing it in that other poor girl's face, terrible. Lol. And

    @Cejers, its never happened to Tyra because one USA ANTM does not have a live vote to pick the winner and 2) Its not filmed live its pre-recorded so even if it does happen no one will ever see/hear about it if Tyrasoraus Rex has anything to say about it. She'd smoosh that ballermouth's modeling career before that poor chick could even blink.

    can we say STAGED…. omg…

  10. 10

    Tyra does not have to do live TV! Every top model after her show began has to pay her for the show so she can do it any way she wants! It's her show!

  11. 11

    See this is why it is better to have the winner's name written down in a nice little envelope.

  12. 12

    STAGED…how does anyone watch sarah's horrible fake performance and believe that wasn't planned out by producers beforehand for more ratings? duuuh

  13. 13

    that was so fake not even all their plastic surgery could measure up to their riduculous performance.

    Re: moorejulie
    How would it get more ratings? That's the end of the cycle, it's OVER, DONE. Meaning what? Their going to get higher rating's for the last few second's of the show. That's just stupid.

    It wasn't staged you incompetent morons. That 'bad performance' is called genuine human shock. Why would they stage this? It wouldnt be for ratings because the show is LIVE… what they want to increase the ratings in the last minute and a half of the show. Fuck some of you are idiots

  17. 17

    ALL THREE of the finalists got Harper's Bazaar covers though.

    I don't watch the show, but I know that the issue went of newsstands today and each girl got her own cover.

  18. 18

    LOL it was done for ratings, the show is finished so what would be the point? Sarah Murdoch is a genuine person who I have met a few times now and if this was staged, I have no doubt that she would have no part in it or unaware of it. Human errors STILL do occur in this crazy technological world you know. I think this shows a tiny bit of the Aussie culture, the actual runner up was incredibly gracious, the winner was humble in amongst the mess, and Sarah still kept her cool and was genuinely horrified at the error.

    I wouldn't want a new hostess, Sarah has been the best I've seen. She seems to genuinely care for the girls, much more than Jodhi Meares, Erika Heynatz and even Tyra Banks. The photo shoots and general competition seems better on Australia's NTM.

    The lovely host of Australia's Next Top Model is Sarah MURDOCH. As in Rupert MURDOCH's daughter in-law and Lachlan MURDOCH's wife, whom OWN FOX, as the Australian version of Next Top Model is a FOX production and is OWNED by Sarah and her family. SERIOUSLY doubt any replacing of the host will be happening.

    Sarah is a beloved Australian model and is KNOWN her her warmth and down to earth typical Australian persona. All of you IMBECILES need to understand this wasn't her fault. And as Alex Perry (a judge on the show, who was there as this unfortunate incident occurred and IS involved in the backhouse and fronthouse of the show said), "It was human error. Everyone's allowed to make a mistake." We are all human at the end of the day, unfortunately this human error was witnessed by millions of people. It's only a television show, knowing how Sarah Murdoch has and ALWAYS will handle any terrible situation. She will do so with grace and poise just as she ALWAYS does.

    How horrible is that?? The poor girl to have her dream smashed after only a couple of minutes. She took it so well. I'm glad they compensated her in some way. The true winner did a good job of not over celebrating. Both women are true class. Why don't they have this written down in an envelope? It wasn't done for ratings for heaven sakes. How could you suddenly get more ratings with one minute left in a show? That's just a stupid thing to say.

    I won tickets to the finale and was there watching as this as it happened… it was 100% real especially seeing everything that happened when the camaras where off… Sarah Murdoch is an amazing host and producer and handle the situation amazingly.. Both Amanda (red dress) and Kelsey the runner up were amazing on and off camara. I can not stress enough that this was real and was not staged there is no way that Sarah would let this happen….
