Tyra Banks lies about whether 'Top Model' winners were all deserving

While her designer pants didn't burst into flames, Tyra Banks apparently told a few fibs during a Wednesday segment of The Tyra Banks Show in which she was hooked up to Fox's The Moment of Truth lie detector.
"Now I know that there are some of you out there who question a few things about me. That's why I've climbed into this hot seat so I can clear some things up once and for all in my own moment of truth," said Banks as she was strapped into the lie detector.
The Moment of Truth host Mark Wahlberg asked the America's Next Top Model creator and lead judge if she thought every winner of the show deserved to take home the title.
"I have gotten out-voted for girls on America's Next Top Model who have gone home," she explained. "But I have never gotten out-voted when there was a winner. I have always voted for the winner that won."
Assuming the lie detector doesn't lie, Banks was fingered as fibbing with her answer.
"What's up with that machine!? Hindsight is 20/20 y'all!" explained Banks, adding she only questioned her final decision of Top Model winners after learning about some of their "crazy" house behavior during editing process.
In addition, Banks also lied about being jealous of talk show queen Oprah Winfrey. However she did tell the truth about making amends with fellow supermodel Naomi Campbell and caring about young girls' self-esteem.
"Oh gosh... That was really, really hard," said Banks when her stint in the hot seat came to a close, also complaining about the constriction of the lie detector on her breasts.
