We are watching America's Next Top Model as, uh, research. (I have a weird freakin' job. But I love it.)

Anyway, this is a hysterical show! Omigod!

I could live without the boring talk at the end ("One of you will be sent on your merry way") with all the drawn-out drama. But the personalities in conflict are fun. And the insights into the girls.

I'm pretty thrilled, because we're in this territory for Exposure, and this show is opening up a lot of possibilities for me, when I was already seeing tons of possibilities...


Welcome, welcome...

This is the only reality tv I make a point to try and watch, it's just too rich. Did you see the episode where the one contestant left because she refused to have her hair cut?

I only wish I could watch this show for work ;)

I'm fascinated by the ceremonial aspect of reality TV, so it doesn't exactly bother me to hear Tyra say over and over, "The next picture I'm going to show... Jayla. Congratulations, you're still in the running toward becoming America's Next Top Model. The next picture I'm going to show... Bre."

The ceremony of each reality show defines a lot about the show's texture, and sometimes it works in a really odd way. The best example is The Apprentice with Martha Stewart. Martha has this odd mix of decorum and disdain for the potential apprentices, which you wouldn't believe, except she's Martha Stewart, so of course she's... odd.

Tyra's kind of the same way. She's solemn and reverent to the great profession of modeling, and I think the show would lose a lot of her humor if someone weren't taking it as seriously as she.

I think Pimp My Ride has the most "ceremony" - that and Top Model are the only reality shows I watch.. Top Model is just too cool not to watch, and I have an excuse, I'm a girl :D

I hate reality tv and have yet to watch a single episode of Survivor, Fear Factor, The Bachelor, The Apprentice or any of the others.

Back when ANTM premiered its first season (or cycle, as they're called) I avoided it like the plague, even though I have an interest in the modelling/fashion industry. But after channel surfing late one night a little over a year ago, I came upon cycle two/episode three of ANTM and was hooked right away. I haven't missed a single episode since -- and have even gone so far as to research the show, the judges and the contestants online. I've also watched the 'where are they now' follow-up shows. My favourite winner was Naima, from the last cycle. I just knew right from the first time I saw her that she was going to be a star! This year, I'm not really getting any vibes from anyone -- but I'm sure glad to see that beauty pageant queen go. This whole industry is about being flexible and accepting change. You have to be a chameleon, altering your appearance sometimes 10 times a day. She refused to go with the flow and quit the competition, which is unfortunate because that spot could've gone to someone far more worthy.
