Australia's Next Top Model 2011 Shock Elimination: Caroline Austin and Neo Yakuac Cut From Competition

Australia's Next Top Model: Caroline and Neo Get Eliminated

Considering two girls got the boot on Australia’s Next Top Model last week — Alissandra and Annaliese — it was a shock to see that both Caroline and Neo were eliminated from the competition on last night’s episode. From the initial audition stage, the judges had high hopes for the girls, even though they worried that Caroline’s confidence would be mistaken for cockiness — and in some episodes, her diva-like antics have garnered more attention than her modelling potential. Photographer Gabrielle Revere, who lensed the Blackmores campaign, gave her a piece of her mind during yesterday’s results: “Your attitude is draining. No one wants to feel like they’re working for you.” Meanwhile, Sudan-born Neo has been compared to model greats like Naomi Campbell, but the judges have expressed their concern that her natural beauty caused her to be a lazy model at shoots. It seems like Caroline anticipated she’d be leaving — she mouthed “Bye” to the safe models when it was down to the final three — but did you? Which elimination shocked you more?
