If you did not think Tyra Banks was the lead star supermodel of the show, think again. This season the theme is Narcissism with Tyra Banks as the head Narcissist. Her photos are everywhere in this season. Who needs to see Tyra’s portfolio, just look on the walls in every room of the house. Even the stretch limo had Tyra’s photo as big as life starring at the girls. Gesh! Enough already! This is something a fan would do to idolize a celebrity. Uh –Oh… is Tyra a fan of herself.
As the 33 girls got off the plane they are greeted by Ms. Jay and whisked off to their first photo shoot. Then they were interviewed by Mr. and Ms. Jay plus Tyra at the head table. The girls are a little kooky this year. It seems as though they will do anything crazy to stay on the show. Tyra made a few girls cry by asking them to tell their hardship story. “Now why did Tyra have to take them down that road? This is not her talk show,” says Dalia.
Oh, I forgot to tell you that not only am I back to recap the shows this season, but my colleague Dalia had to come back as well to put her two cents in as well. Go ahead, Dalia, say your peace so I can move on.
I am bored already and this is the first show. They are running out of ideas. Tyra has the girls posing nude on the first show? WHY? Girls are crying and getting upset because they have to pose nude. We see Mr. Jay explaining the difference between a nude photo looking sleazy, sexy or trashy. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Mr. Jay. Tell that crap to the marines. Nude is nude. Then the producers were spending time convincing the girls to cooperate.
“I am sticking to my morals and standards”, says wannabe model, Ginger. By the way, Ginger did not make it to the final 13. We have to put up with a 7th season of this nonsense. First of all, if the girls have been watching this show from the first season, they know at least two things will happen…one, you will pose nude and two; you will have your hair cut. Not all the crying in the world is going to stop those over-sexed, ratings-grabbing producers from creating drama on the show. If the show does not have drama, someone crying or fighting, there is no show.
Our current Cover Girl/America’s Next Top Model winner, Danielle is stiff and her diction is horrible. Before she does another commercial, she needs to go back to a speech class and learn how to pronounce the words correctly. Do you know why models don’t talk? It’s because they have to loose the accent first. Danielle’s personality is lost in the Cover Girl commercials. I would not buy a chap stick from her.
Back to you, Belinda…
Hmmm… Now where was I…? Oh yes, let’s talk about the finalists. For the first time we have twin models Michelle and Amanda competing for the title. Ms. Jay thinks that the closest the girls should be to fashion is sitting in the back row. Wow, that’s cold.
Jaeda says she is the hottest girl in school because everyone always says she is so beautiful. However, Tyra quickly cut her down to her knees by saying, “Just because you are beautiful at school does not translate to being a model.” For some reason, Melrose thinks she is already a top model. Her attitude reminds me of Jade from last season. She also photographs like an old woman and has a couple of moles starting from her face down to her neck… Yuck.
This season seems to be like the others… a bunch of beautiful girls with low self-esteem. They have no previous modeling experience and don’t seem hungry enough to go out on a limb and grab the title. The only thing you will be looking forward to is the fight scenes with the spoiled bitchy brat of the house, Monique. She is a horrible bitchy diva in the house and has no game in front of the camera where the bitchy attitude can pay off big tyme. I guess we will see her on one of those reality TV shows as the star bitch.
Stay tuned for 12 weeks as I take you through the life of AJ, Amanda, Anchal, Brooke, Caridee, Eugena, Jaeda, Megan, Megg, Melrose, Michelle, Monique and Christian (Oh, Christian was the first girl to get eliminated. I understand she is a friend of radio host, Wendy Williams’ side kick, um...what’s his name… anyway she did not stay on long enough to give anyone a shout out.)
