Do you wanna be on top?

America's Next Top Model. This is a show I got sucked into a few years ago by a couple of friends (you know who you are!) and I can't stop watching.

Let me clear something up. I enjoy this show, but I also highly enjoy mocking it. The best and worse part of this show is Tyra Banks. Yes, I know she's done good things, and I do think she helps young women's self-esteem on her talk show, but seriously, on this show she is ridiculous.

There are pictures of her all over the house the contestants stay in, and she always does the poses she has the girls do for their photo shoots. To me this means she either has no new ideas and is just having the girls do things she's done in the past, or she feels the need to show she can compete with these 18 to 25 year olds. (Not sure which is more lame).

You don't believe me? I'll prove it. Here are just a few of the gems Tyra has said this season. (And I should emphasize that once she says something she likes she just keeps repeating it).
  • Smize - smiling with your eyes (advice she tells the contestants ALL the time)
  • H2T - modeling from head to toe (more advice of course)
  • "You're the verb, not the noun - you can model, but you're not a model"
  • "The judges will now deliberate" (She's said it every episode in the judging panel since I started watching the show - um, learn a synonym for this word!)
  • "Two girls stand before me for two very different reasons (right before she eliminates someone) you each have what the other one needs"
  • "I think you look like the bride of Frankenstein." Miss Jay (one of the judges). "I think she looks like the bride of Frankenstein's second cousin who is a model." - Tyra
  • "I don't know what's up with her - I think she drank some fierce juice"
Ohhhh Tyra. What do you think dear readers? And don't forget to tune in for more ridiculous-ness tonight at eight o'clock.

Bahahaha! I have watched this show for years! I don't know why, but I love watching it! And Tyra does crack me up. What's up with her acting out characters all the time?! I also love her changing hair styles (and weight, but shhh!) each season.

I looooove making fun of Tyra!! She gets crazier every season!

Every season I ask myself why I am still watching this show.....as I sit down with a bowl of ice cream (to combat all the skinniness of course!) and watch every episode!

My husband asks why I watch it and I always tell him it is the best comedy on tv!

How the heck do you smile with your eyes?? If I ever meet Tyra (there is no reason why I would ever meet her, but just in case) that is what I am going to ask her.

I can't stand Tyra so I don't watch this show. But I will occasionally get sucked into a marathon of it!!
