Ok, so I have to let you in on one of my guilty pleasures, ANTM. Not as popular as Project Runway and regularly paned by critics, but I enjoy it just the same.
I respect that Tyra has addressed issues like body image and cigarette smoking. I also enjoyed watching Heather last cycle follow her dream of becoming a model while dealing with the challenges that Autism and AD/HD can impose.
This season, as with other cycles the models will win a management and representation by Elite Model Management, a 100,00 contract with Cover Girl Cosmetics, and a cover and six page spread on Seventeen Magazine.
There are a couple of shake ups this cycle with the modeling icon Twiggy out (according to reports, she had scheduling conflicts) and Cezech supermodel and Dancing With The Stars contestant, Paulina Porizkova taking her place.
The other shake up but not really a big deal in my book, there will be 14 instead of the typical 13 contestants. Maybe a double elimination in the first episode? We’ll see. I’m looking forward to what Miss J. will do for each departing girl. Last cycle his afro increased in size. He’s very silly and has a wicked sense of humor.
Another change to ANTM, will be where the models will be living. This cycle the models will be in NYC a departure from LA where the show has been housed since cycle 4.
Does anyone else watch the show?
Here’s a link to the site if you want to do some exploring.
Below is a preview for tonight.
