Despite the supermodel's attempt to pass herself off as just an ordinary mother of four, she's ill-suited to interviewing tots a la Kids Say the Darndest Things' Art Linkletter (and later Bill Cosby). Her interplay with little boys becomes weirdly sexualized when she asks about their girlfriends ("You like skirts? You are a little player then?) and reveals how her "boyfriend" Seal likes to "play hide-and-seek" and "do lots of tricks."
The Project Runway taskmistress is even less well-equipped to playing hidden-camera pranks like Candid Camera's Allen Funt: A bit in which she affixed big fake boogers to her nose was aptly titled "You Think It's Funny, But It's Snot." Throw in a few clips that wouldn't make the cut on America's Funniest Home Videos and lame montages of kids telling knock-knock jokes ("Justin who? Justin Beaver!" Huh?) and fairy tales such as the Three Little Pigs, and you've got a show that — like the Big Bad Wolf — seriously blows.
Do you think Heidi Klum should stick to doing Runway?
