America's Next Top Model is back!
Yes, I totally cringed through the first hour of the show (I think Tyra hit a new low when she "stomped the yard"), and, yes, it's clear that no winner of this show is actually going to become America's next top model--especially since a lot of the girls this season are pretty toe-up. So I am vowing this season to 1) not pick a favorite, 2) not get emotionally involved, and 3) just sit back and enjoy the spectacle that is the show. Considering the total wack jobs this season, those objectives should be pretty easy to achieve. There's ka-ray-zy Jael, who makes Jade (remember her?) seem totally reasonable; Natasha, the Russian mail-order bride; Renee, the girl who won't shut up about her kid; Sarah, the full-of-herself "photographer" (I'm wondering if she actually gets paid for her photographs); Jaslene, whom I'm still not 100% convinced is a woman; and, hey, there are two plus-size models (one of whom, Whitney, went to Dartmouth, and is probably one of the smartest girls ever to grace the show, aside from Kim). And I was shocked that the first contestant to go was Brooklyn's own Kathleen, who was so hilariously out of it (fur coats aren't made from animals that die naturally?), I spent half the show doubled over with laughter. What's wrong with the ANTM producers? In past seasons, they would've kept her around for at least a few episodes, just for laughs. Nonetheless, I'm sure we'll see her strutting through the Fulton Mall, so keep your eyes peeled for a big red weave.
