Cycle 15′s cast wasn’t the most impressive to me overall, but I’m glad we ended up with a strong (and completely correct) Final 5. Chris would probably be in my Top 3 or 4 if the prizes for this cycle were different, and I truly believe that she would be a serious finale threat in a different cycle such as 12 or 14. She just way too commercial to be considered as a contender this time around. Her photos were consistently very good, and she typically hung out in the middle/upper half of my call-outs week to week. However, she didn’t produce any pictures that completed wowed me, something that the 4 girls above her all did at least once. She did go downhill a bit in Italy, especially compared to the other girls, but I never thought any of her shots were tragic. I was always impressed by her ability to get into character and fit the given brief, plus she knew how to be energetic and dynamic on set a majority of the time. Chris’s walk didn’t really stand out to me, but she was still solid when it came to runway. Where she really shone was in public speaking and delivering commercials. She was a complete natural at bringing out her personality and I think she could’ve done well as an actress too. Chris really exceeded my expectations because I thought she would be a goner within the first few weeks. However, she had a really good run on the show and completely deserved to last as long as she did.
Chris was one of my favorite girls this cycle. Her personality was just so infectious and her commentary was golden. She had so many hilarious moments; the ones that stand out to me are when Myrtle emerged during the barbecue that Kacey put together, and when she pretended to steal everything in the house after her elimination. Chris seemed like a super positive and fun person to be around and she added a lot of entertainment to this cycle.
