While we have never seen an episode of this season (or cycle, rather) of ANTM, we cannot help but put aside our lives when a marathon of yesteryear is on. Though Tyra Banks is both egocentric and ridiculous, we find ourselves sucked into the faux-drama she represents. Basically, becoming a model is the most difficult thing you could ever do, just ask Tyra.
The models are asked to do all sorts of crazy photo shoots (pose as if they are murdered, act like men, etc..) and then are judged on their picture-taking skills. In the meantime, there are all sorts of feuds between the girls (facilitated by Tyra's commentary) that make this show a back-stabbing romp everyone can enjoy!!!
Quick vote: This show is ridiculous and we love it for that very quality. (We much prefer it in marathon format though.)
