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

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.

Jeers: Top Model Far from Super

Jeers to America's Next Top Model for desperately needing a makeover. The twist for the 10th(!) cycle of Tyra Banks' CW reality show is... it's moving back to New York City. Sorry, that's not enough. Especially when it feels like we've seen all these wannabes before — inner-city tough girl Marvita ("Bitch, if you touch me, you gonna die"), filterless freak Amis ("You guys want to see my pubic hair?"), plus-size diva Whitney ("I am me, and if you don't like it, you can go suck an egg!"). It's time for an all-star or a celebrity edition or a plus-size-only throwdown to freshen the formula. This season's biggest surprise is fey Jay Manuel's emergence as an unlikely sex symbol: Stacy-Ann even gave him a lapdance. Sorry, Tyra, but it's back to the drawing board — and you better work!• Read and react to Bruce's opinions on Nip/Tuck's season finale, My Dad Is Better than Your Dad and more!• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeer... read more

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

The Models Get Gothic

Episode Recap: "The Girl Who's Afraid of Heights"ANTM finally kicked things into high gear this week when the made-over models began to figure out how to manage their new looks. After Victoria was sent packing last week, there's nobody left in the house who hasn't "been dreaming of this opportunity her entire life." As the numbers are starting to dwindle, the girls were forced to step it up a notch to prove their worth in this competition. Based on the popular opinion of this and other ANTM blogs, Janet was destined to be the next one sent home because the episode started out with her talking about her motherly role in the house. It looks like Heather is starting to feel right at home now that she's gotten into the trash-talking. She was brutally honest when discussing the flaws of her rival models, as well as her own. It wasn't long before the girls were off to some gymnastic training with Benny Ninja. The models learned to pose mid-air on a trampoline. After returning home for so... read more
