Does anyone still watch this show? I didn't realize it's even still on, but my DVR recorded a new episode last night. USA vs Britain? It's such a sad excuse for a show...I'm ashamed to say I sat and watched it.
I had it on for a few minutes while searching for my remote. I thought the concept of the models suspended in the air was really dumb. I agree OP, it's hard to believe this show still exists.
Does anyone know why Angelea was disqualified during the All Star season?
Hey, the show is on, what, it's 12th season? It's survived all the trends, lived through network changes and is still here. It's not relevant in any way but some people still like it.
Do any of them actually get modeling gigs?
Actually I think this is like the 18th season. And unfortunately I think there will be an 19th season because they're already running the promo saying, "If YOU have what it takes to become America's Next Top Model you can apply at..."
And I still want to know why Angelea was DQ'd too!! I thought for sure it'd come out eventually. Surely that girl has told SOMEONE.
Here's a great blog with a lot of the girls' updated work:
Really! R5 The mouth on that girl. How she has not told anyone yet is beyond me. Tyra must really have her on lockdown.
[quote]Do any of them actually get modeling gigs?
Only a few right after the show ends, but later on, no.
The minimum age for the show is 18.
18 is middle age for a model and all the good ones are already signed and working by then. The 25 and 26 year olds on the show are completely delusional.
Any 18+ girl that wants to be a model enough to apply for the show has already tried (and failed) going the traditional model route.
Lisa D'Amato just won the all-stars season and she's 30!
[quote]Lisa D'Amato just won the all-stars season and she's 30!
And her career is so non-existent that she's got time for this shit.
Yaya was in The Kids Are Alright (I thought she was good, actually). Eva Pigford's been on TV quite a little bit. Obviously the one chick married a Brady. I think they're divorced now though. Anchal was dating Jim Carrey for a minute.
Out of 18 cycles, only one girl (Fatima) actually "made it" and even that can be debated as it seems she's already fading away.
A few of them have wisely gone the acting/celebrity route. Yaya, Adrienne, and Analeigh come to mind.
Many of them get lots of comerical work but nothing ever serious.
I still watch but now it's becoming something I'm embarrassed by. This season may be it for me... It's always been a joke but it's gone too far...
The "rivalry" between US and Britain seems SO forced this season it's embarrassing. And there's so much red white and blue on the show it hurts my damn eyes.
Is that bitch from that other reality show a permant judge? I hope not
No, Kris Jenner was only on the show for tonight (in order to try and pimp her OTHER two children and make them "happen").
Kelly Cutrone is a crass cunt.
alliterate that, bitch
I kind of like Kelly. She puts those twats in their places.
I can shamefully say I have watched every single episode of this show since Cycle 1. However, this season is pure shit and I just couldn't watch it. I expect falling ratings...if I can't stomach it, no one can.
It's hard to believe this show is still on
Does Tyra still act stupid?
Yes, she really can be ridiculous.
Same here R22,
I have been this nonsense since first season, and this cycle, is the first time I haven't watched one single episode.
I didn't even know it was on.
The androgynous girl is hot. What's her name? AzMarie?
Yes, and she seems pretty cool, too. I like this pic of her:
[quote]Does Tyra still act stupid?
Tyra did an obnoxious voiceover on Wednesday's show informing viewers that she recently earned her degree in business. This (I guess) qualifies her as being a mogul. I'm not kidding.
She even posed with a piece of paper in a frame! I think I may be done with the show ... after last season's "all stars" (read: has-beens) and this season's Brit/Yank fiasco.
From Harvard Business school no less.
Enough about these girls, lets talk about MEEEEE!!!
It's really trashy this time around. They even have Nigel acting like a bitch.
Yeah, it's stupid... but that AzMarie is something else. Not just like a guy but an extremely hot guy and I love her cool attitude towards it all too.
Hope she isn't penalized for being on this weird season. She could change the game out there.
P.S. A true International Edition -- with one model from each country (even if just English speaking ones) -- would've been cool. Maybe winners from all the other nations that have their own version of show? Cream of the crop.
But this idea of "tension" between US and UK is so weirdly... wrong. Forced.
They sent AzMarie home!
R35, she was a boaster and a coaster, so they decided to toast her!
Everything negative said about AzMarie (pertaining to her ego) could also be said about Tyra. LULZ
I think a lot of the girls do quite well out of it. A lot of them go onto work. As mentioned, YaYa was featured in The Kids Are All Right. Analeigh Tipton, featured a few cycles ago, had a major role in Crazy, Stupid, Love and can currently be seen in Whit Stilman's Damsels In Distress - she's obviously talented so it's arguable whether ANTM made her but it certainly didn't hurt her.
R2, the story on Angelea is that she won the All-Stars cycle and then, rather stupidly, posted about it on her Facebook shortly after filming concluded in Greece. This is a breach of contract so the producers decided to re-film the final panel in Los Angeles with just Lisa and (the lovely) Alison Harvard. So Lisa's All-Star win was a pretty hollow victory, though I liked all three of the finalists. Just goes to show ya - don't mess with Tyra! Seems rather churlish of the producers since reality show spoilers are all over the net anyway.
This show always seems to pick the worst of the worst for contestants. I mean, seriously, the fat chick isn't even good enough to get into a Lane Bryant catalog. And those horsey British girls? Please.
I just don't like her tats, those tats will hardly get her modeling gigs. Designers hate tats on models.
AzMarie walks like a guy, terrible walk!
I felt it wasn't fair to expect the plus sized woman to get as many bookings as the thinner models. I hate how Tyra just throws out anyone who voices any dissatification with any aspect of the competition. AzMarie didn't deserve to be booted off. Her booty tooch is lame anyway, why does a model have to wear a prosthetic ass and do that dance? This and most reality shows are just about humiliation.
I watched the All Stars season to see Allison win. She came in second again --- losing to Sandra Bernhard. Will never watch another episode.
Anyone watch the premiere of...what's left of ANTM? How painfully awful. Just when we thought it couldn't get any worse! Of course Tyra made it all about herself (again) with her painfully stupid acting--and she again managed to plug the fact that she graduated from Harvard! God I wish she'd die already.
You're right, R44. Hideous, sophomoric, aimless, confused, boring and the cunts were so stupid one wondered how they managed not to poke their eyes out with their eye-goo sticks.
I didn't realize this already started. There's been no promo on CW. That new black judge guy with the British accent is hot. He'll make me get over the loss of Nigel. I'm not sure what that other thing is called, or what it's supposed to be, but it's annoying.
I tried watching Wednesday's episode...I really did...but I just had to give up and stop. The whole thing seems so forced and fake to me. It makes NO SENSE that viewers are able to vote each week, as this show is filmed well in advance of actually airing. Tyra is duping her audience into thinking they're really participating...it's all fake. I'm done.
Dynasty trivia - John James' daughter, Laura, is a contestant. For the life of me, I can't remember her at all.
I actually like the new College version, because you get to vote and tune in on the internet, it doesn't just stop at the end of the show. The new guy that replaced Alexander is actually cute, and seems to be a nice cool guy.

Allison deserved to win, I cannot believe she lost a second time. That was just so wrong!

I've never seen him before, but he is gorgeous.

Unless the show is being filmed in real-time (which it is not), you're being duped.
If I'm getting duped, then I'm getting mad now!
Does Kelly Cuntrone seem a little... nicer this season?
That Victoria is a total headcase. How many fucking times a day does she cry?
I wish Maria was around longer so I could hate her more. What a nasty little cunt. And THEN she cries, the cunt.
I miss the Jays. And the massive queen in the caftan.
I like that new stylist guy. I think he's cute. Not as bitchy as that insufferable grey-haired queen Jay Manuel.
My niece was on one of the early seasons. She said there was a lot of "created" drama.
Anyone see Jael on Dr. Phil yesterday? DRAMAAAA
The next cycle of ANTM will finally have some male contestants!
How about ALL men Tyra??!
I love Victoria. If you ever wondered what happened to Carrie White...
Sorry that Victoria was voted off, she made the show worth watching. I'm rooting for the girl that got voted back.
[quote]I like that new stylist guy. I think he's cute. Not as bitchy as that insufferable grey-haired queen Jay Manuel.
The new guy is cute and charming, love his teeth! I don't miss Jay Manuel at all.
Kiara and Kristen are such bitches.
This show is pointless and Tyra "I'm Not That Fat" Banks needs to sit her ass down for a hot damn minute. Bitch be reckless.
Too bad Kristen is a bitch, or I would have been rooting for her.
Kristen is horrible, and she's actually proud of herself for it.
You guys aren't seriously still watching this contrived drivel, are you? Come on--shut it off. I finally had enough this season and removed it from my DVR. Too much fakery going on. Buh-bye, Ty Ty!
I only tuned into the college edition because I've met Jessie Rabideau before.
