As the women who would be America’s Next Top Model strut toward the end of another addictive season, it’s time to set aside the intermodel melodrama (so long, Camille) and focus on who will take the title. We’re no Janice Dickinson, but here are our odds on the remaining beauties.

Mercedes Her lush lips ooze sex appeal, while her sunny smile endears her to even the picky Dickinson. Her endurance in the face of lupus makes her all the more admirable. Odds 3-2

April The former account executive is the only Model wannabe who could hold her own with the Apprentice crowd, and her cutthroat drive would definitely impress the Donald. Odds 3-1

Shandi We’d love to see this shy Walgreen’s clerk blossom into a supermodel. The willowy blonde’s stunning transformation had Miss Tyra gushing, ”I was cheering you on like I was yo’ mama.” Odds 3-1

Yoanna Her flawless face has earned her a free pass on the judges’ gripes about her body. But as the competition thins, her imperfections will become an issue. Odds 6-1
