Amy "Amis" Jenkins the third girl cut from 'America's Next Top Model'

Reality TV World - Mansfield, MA, USA - Amy "Amis" Jenkins was accused of not taking modeling seriously, causing the 20-year-old waitress from Bartlesville, OK to become the third contestant eliminated from America's Next Top Model's tenth season during last night's broadcast of The CW reality series.

"Walking away from this competition, I feel no bitterness, only huge amounts of gratitude," said Amis following her ouster.  "This has been the best thing to ever happen to me.  I've gained so much from the whole experience -- good, bad, whatever -- I wanted to absorb.  I was part of something bigger than myself, and who could ever want anything more in life."

Top Model's third tenth-season episode began with Amis goofing around the New York City loft, and Fatima, a 22-year-old student from Boston, MA, criticized her for not taking the competition seriously.

"I feel like Amis is just a joke," commented Fatima.  "I truly want to win this so bad.  I cherish every day.  It makes me wonder if this is really what she wants to do."

The 11 remaining girls then received Tyra Mail and traveled to a New York City firehouse, where they were met by several firemen and runway expert J. "Ms. J." Alexander, who explained they'd be learning about the "quick change."  Each girl would have 90 seconds to get out of their outfits and put on a new outfit before displaying their runway walk for Ms. J. and the firemen.

Not surprisingly, there was some cattiness.

"I know drag queens that walk better than Dominique," commented Whitney, a 20-year-old student from Atlantic Beach, FL.

Ms. J. agreed, and thought Dominique, a 23-year-old receptionist from Columbus, OH, was one step away from doing a strip-club routine for the firemen.  He also criticized Fatima for marching "like a Clydesdale;" Lauren, a 22-year-old artist from Brooklyn, NY, for still lacking confidence; and Amis for skipping.

Back at the loft, the girls had a small tiff over how to share the three bathrooms amongst the 11 of them before they received Tyra Mail.  They traveled to a theater and were met by Bryan Bradley from Tuleh Designs and Ms. J., who informed the girls they'd be participating in a Tuleh runway fashion show.  Each girl would be given three minutes to "quick change" by themselves or else the runway show would go on without them.

As they had their hair and makeup done backstage, the girls met runway show producer Andrew Weir, Seventeen magazine editor-in-chief Ann Shoket, and Top Model eighth-season champ Jaslene Gonzalez.  The winner of the "quick change" challenge would appear with Jaslene in a LOT29 advertorial in Seventeen.

Some of the girls had a few problems during their runway show, including Whitney's nipple hanging out; Lauren walking too fast and not posing at all; and Fatima missing a button on her shirt.

Once the show was over the girls received compliments and criticisms, with Jaslene telling Lauren she was "very disappointed" in her performance and questioning if she really wants to be a model.

"I felt a little insulted," commented Lauren about Jaslene's comment.
