The 'Top Model' Winner? Cover Girl

Meet "America's Next Top Model," Saleisha. Brought to you by the Priory of Pretty, better know as the wholesome-hawking cult of Cover Girl. Not to go all "Da Vinci Code" with the conspiracy theories, but that's all we could think of when edgy Jenah was tossed back over the Great...

'Top Model': There Are No Great Models, Only Great Walls

There is just one episode left, so perhaps now is a good time for a refresher on the four remaining "America's Next Top Model" wannabes: There's Bianca (the saucy post-adolescent from Queens who arrived with a flash of Bozo-red hair and quickly took to putting down other people. Those in...

'Top Model:' The Higher the Pedestal...

After several seasons of providing more incentives to slumber than even Sleepytime Tea, "America's Next Top Model" last night reminded us why it garnered such a devoted audience in the first place. In a "no freakin' way" moment, Tyra and Co. booted Asperger's sufferer Heather, who has been voted fan...

'Top Model': China, Or Lessons on "Inside Voice"

OMG! The girls from Queens, Texas and Valparaiso have arrived! In last night's episode, six of the "America's Next Top Model" gals land in fabulous Beijing, where it's twinkling, bustling and just like "The Jetsons" (thanks for the poetic description, Chantal). And how do the ladies approach this groundbreaking cultural...

'Top Model': Bottom of the Barrel?

It struck us just as last night's episode of "America's Next Top Model" wrapped up. Seven girls stood before her. But as hard as we tried, we didn't see a star in the bunch. Plenty of pretty girls (even one that could do body-double work for Rihanna). But every one...

'Top Model': Yup, Size Does Matter

Two models came under the microscope last night -- one for being not so micro. But first, a quick catch-up: Before we were SO rudely interrupted by last week's totally unhelpful recap episode, "America's Next Top Model" hooked us pretty good with a judging twist: With nine girls left, Ebony...

'Top Model': Relive It All Over Again

The finale is six weeks away, the argument goes, so why not revisit all six of the episodes of "America's Next Top Model" that have run to date? Catch everyone up on what's happened so far? Yeah, that, and it happens to be Halloween, and it's pretty much a sure...

'Top Model': Getting Lucky

Oh, lordy, guess who's reduced the entire "America's Next Top Model" house into a giggling hot mess. Tyson "The Body" Beckford! (Jenah brilliantly welcomes him into the house with, "Girls, we have company. I would really, seriously hurry up.") He pays the nine remaining girls a visit to prep them...

'Top Model': When Winning is Really Losing (Friends)

With 10 contestants left, things are starting to feel belligerent, um, competitive around the "America's Next Top Model" house. It all started with Benny Ninja who, as if administering some kind of freak shock therapy, got the girls prepped for their challenge by shrieking "Pose!" at random intervals while the...

'Top Model': Bald Is Beautiful, But Oversold

This week on "America's Next Top Model," there were eleven girls left, so it was time to start shaking out the mere pretty girls from the really gifted clothes hangers. And one really good way to expose all a woman's insecurities (not to mention an ug face) is to mess...

Who's Fat, and Who's Just Not 'Top Model' Material

Finally, what we've all been waiting for: Catfighting (ya know, the really entertaining kind that teeters on the edge of bloodsport) has begun to threaten the peace in the "America's Next Top Model" house. "You're borderline plus-size," yells prima drama Bianca at Saleisha, who's maybe three pounds heavier. But we...

'Top Model's' Fashion Flop

"Do you really think America's next top model is going to be an exotic dancer?!?" And there it is. In Queens girl Bianca's bring-it hypothetical question to 20-year-old Lisa (yes, a dancer, and also the most beautiful girl in the cat, um, model house) last night, you've got pretty much...
