I don't know why this came out looking like Tyra Banks. I wasn't thinking about her or going for a Tyra look, but it happened. And now we just have to deal with it.

America's Next Top Model has to be one of the few formats for a 'reality' shows that works as watch-able viewing. Of course you have the girls walking about in their underoos, but you also get a peek at some useful info from the fashion world, such as lighting in photography, hairstyling, costumes, make-up, how restrictive some clothing and shoes are, and big help to the animator, posing. I know many people will poo-poo the idea that you can learn anything from such a seemingly vapid show, but it's all their to be exploited if you lower your prejudices. Plus a lot of the girls conform to the 'dumb model' stereotype, so there's quite a bit of [unintentional] humour.
