We love a train wreck. There are few things more satisfying as a viewer and consumer of culture than watching the most hapless of humanity enter situations that most certainly will not end well. Call it perverse, or call it good television — reality TV as a giant, gaping industry predicates itself on the fact… READ MORE »

Hard to believe, but “America’s Next Top Model” is now in its 20th cycle. Yup, Tyra’s been lording it over wanna-be models since forever. This season’s a little bit different: She’ll have both male and female contestants competing against one another. Will there be catfights and sexual tension? Probs. Sigh.

She wants to be on top! Kiara Belen placed runner-up on Cycle 19 of “America’s Next Top Model,” the college edition. The gorgeous, statuesque former UC Irvine basketball player lost to cornsilk-blonde Laura James, the daughter of “Dynasty” actor John James, in an extremely close final panel. But as pained as I felt watching Kiara… READ MORE »

Every reality show competition has its oddball and Victoria on “America’s Next Top Model” fits it to a ‘T.’ She was homeschooled, attends online schooling at uber-religious Liberty University, and when she “gets in character” she over-acts during all her photoshoots … like in the most recent episode when she spat at the photographer. Victoria… READ MORE »

We were totally shocked when we saw former “America’s Next Top Model” contest Jael Strauss — who’d appeared on Cycle 8 of the series — would be appearing on a “Dr. Phil” episode devoted to her drug abuse. Since appearing on the series six years ago, Jael’s life has taken a severely downward slide. She’s been addicted to meth,… READ MORE »

Whoopee, tonight is the premiere of “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle 19! The college edition, or something. I really hope Tyra has some new stuff in store. I mean, after 18 seasons, things get stale. Although I have no commentary to offer as of yet, I honor the return of “ANTM” with this genius morphing… READ MORE »

There’s been a lot of shake ups in Tyra Banks’ “Top Model” world of late. As she struggles to make “ANTM” relevant and engaging in its zillionth “cycle,” Ty-Ty decided to mix up the judging panel by getting rid of judging mainstay (“Noted Fashion Photographer”) Nigel Barker and model coach/shoot producer Jay Manuel (that’s Mr. READ MORE »

I guess Tyra Banks is aware that she’s grasping at straws on this season of “America’s Next Top Model.” You know when you do a segment called “Tooch Teach” that it’s time to change stuff up. After 19 Cycles of almost exactly the same thing, Tyra has decided to clean house for the next season… READ MORE »

This season of “America’s Next Top Model” has been particularly dull. The UK vs. US premise seems secondary to Tyra’s shameless attempts to promote her Modelland books. Last night, Tyra achieved an unprecedented level of ridiculousness with her “booty tooch teach.” She had special “booty tooch” hot shorts and “training tooches” (ass pads) for all… READ MORE »

For the next season of “America’s Next Top Model,” host Tyra Banks is hoping to incite an age-old rivalry between the Brits and Americans. She’s bringing some of her past British “Top Model” contestants over to go up against a crop of seven new model babies in “ANTM: British Invasion.” One’s already doing the “bootyREAD MORE »

Most of the ex-contestants of “America’s Next Top Model” go on to, well … fade into obscurity. But not Cycle 10 contestant Fatima Siad. Siad has walked in Dries Van Noten and Hermes shows, and this week, a new Herve Leger ad featuring the gorgeous Somali model was released. Take a long look. [CocoPerez] … READ MORE »

In 2008, Whitney Thompson made waves when she became the first-ever plus-size winner of “America’s Next Top Model.” These days, she’s parlayed her win into a successful modeling career — and a turn as an entrepreneur.

Who can understand the whims and desires of International Top Supermodel and Media Mogul Tyra Banks? For the past several cycles she’s had the inimitable Vogue Contributing Editor Andre Leon Talley as a panel judge for the show, but now rumor has it that he’ll be replaced by PR guru/life coach/”The City” HBIC Kelly Cutrone.

Sometimes we think “America’s Next Top Model” should be renamed “America’s Next Top Indiana Jones In High Heels.” Some of these challenges are absolutely insane! And dangerous!
