Our Take on the America's Next Top Model All-Stars

America's Next Top Model

Though the lineup leaked months ago, on Thursday the CW confirmed the cast of the upcoming "all-star" cycle of America's Next Top Model (premiering Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 9/8c). Eight out of the 14 aspiring whatevers are 25 years old or older, which is hilarious since even at a decade younger they'd still be kind of old to be getting into modeling. But America's Next Top Model is not the real world or even the fashion world (which is also not the real world), and creator/host Tyra Banks recently told Good Morning America that this cycle will be about more than just modeling anyway. "I have the girls singing songs, doing music videos, creating perfumes. You can't just be a model anymore ... Now it's about celebrity-celebrity, so that's what I'm doing with my all-stars," she said.

A Big Twist on Top Model

Episode Recap: "The Girl Who Gets a Mango"At the start of this week’s ANTM, it seemed as though we’d waving bye-bye to Ebony. She's been rubbing the judges the wrong way nearly every week so far, so it wouldn’t have been the biggest shocker to see her go. As Heather discussed her problem with always giving the camera a profile shot, a surprise guest came to the door. The girls were ecstatic to find it was Tyson Beckford, and he was there to teach the group how to be good spokespersons. They were each asked to grab an item in the house and try to sell it. Most of them seemed to go with the idea that sex sells, and tried to sound as seductive as possible. Little did they know that sex would definitely not sell in the challenge that awaited them. When the girls arrived at the location of this week’s challenge, they learned their task would be to come up with a 30-second PSA for the Keep a Child Alive charity. Despite stumbling on their lines and even the name of th... read more

Model Kicks Off "Trippy" Klutz

Sarah Rhoades

Cute as Sarah Rhoades is, the underdog sex kitten couldn't walk to save her life, much less keep her in the running toward becoming America's Next Top Model (Wednesdays at 8 pm/ET, on UPN). Perhaps to keep her from bruising her pretty face by taking a spill, the judges handed Sarah a nice, soft seat on an airplane home to Boonville, Mo., which sucks for two reasons: 1) Both hot and warm, she was easily the season's most appealing contestant, and 2) now we'll never know how far her relationship with lesbian buddy Kim would have gone had they continued making out in limos and taking midnight swims together. Before she starts telling tales on today's Tyra Banks Show, I can make myself — and maybe you, too — feel a little bit better by letting you in on the not-at-all-dumb blonde's master plan.
