New model house

Come and smize here

They appear to be flogging a dead horse.

Has ALT gone now?

FestinaLente - 03 Apr 2012 15:59:01 (#515 of 967)

I've seen the second & third installments of ANTM (the first was no longer available by the time I discovered it was even on!), and I must say, it sucks. The US girls are dreadful, the UK girls all have an attitude, and the new judge is horrifying. Which leaves only Tyra, a total madwoman.

But of course I'll watch it to the bitter end, so I can have a good laugh at their expense.

Junebug - 03 Apr 2012 16:45:34 (#516 of 967)

of course I will watch too festina.

foxybrown - 03 Apr 2012 16:48:29 (#517 of 967)

New Judge? No NFP Nigel?

FestinaLente - 03 Apr 2012 17:00:41 (#518 of 967)

Nigel is still with us. It's this one:

Her title is apparently "PR maven"

Junebug - 03 Apr 2012 17:01:56 (#519 of 967)

I have yet to understand what she does exactly.

FestinaLente - 03 Apr 2012 17:03:08 (#520 of 967)

Really. What, exactly, is a maven? Can I use that as my occupation on my tax paperwork?

foxybrown - 03 Apr 2012 17:03:25 (#521 of 967)

Never heard of her.

KittyKarateRedux - 03 Apr 2012 17:32:35 (#522 of 967)

Is a maven like a raven, except that they don't wear black all the time?

DejaLu - 03 Apr 2012 17:33:08 (#523 of 967)

A raven with a penchant for mauve.

FestinaLente - 03 Apr 2012 18:50:44 (#524 of 967)

except that they don't wear black all the time?

But this one does!

foxybrown - 09 Jul 2012 21:05:52 (#525 of 967)

New BNTM on now, have we all given up?

foxybrown - 09 Jul 2012 21:30:42 (#526 of 967)

Just me then but glad to see all the stereotypes being deployed: you're aggressive, intimidating and need to get rid of the chip on your shoulder and we aren't even 30 mins in.

The girls are terribly plain, the makeovers will have to be of biblical proportions

KittyKarateRedux - 10 Jul 2012 09:00:43 (#527 of 967)

Well, good things is they didn't have 3 weeks of pointless fucking auditions.

And Tyson is easier on the eye than bitter Charley Speed and pretty much anyone is easier on the eye or ear than Grace.

Did it seem like Tyson and Whitney interpreted mentoring as standing around an iPad and going 'naaah that's shit'?

Agreed that they are all pretty average looking, and some would have been laughed off the catwalk by Janice for being too fat (or not fat enough)

foxybrown - 10 Jul 2012 09:10:19 (#528 of 967)

Greetings, Kitty.

Yes I agree about unfortunately some would have been deemed fat by mad Janice, the Somalian(?) girl for example looked wide but possibly it was my tv.

I don't think Tyson will mince his words judging by the little I saw of Make Me A Supermodel.

The girl that left.....mentally challenged?

KittyKarateRedux - 17 Jul 2012 15:12:22 (#529 of 967)

I'm not sure why Elle is bothering doing eliminations, they seem to be leaving of their own accord.

Guilty laugh at the final selection when the girl who had been boasting didn't get picked.

Junebug - 17 Jul 2012 15:33:32 (#530 of 967)

watched the first episode. God they are so meh. As somebody said the transformation will have to be radical.

foxybrown - 18 Jul 2012 19:19:37 (#531 of 967)

Very boring episode, still I'm liking the judges so far, except Elle, who is not far off Tyra's ego

KittyKarateRedux - 24 Jul 2012 11:54:47 (#532 of 967)

Still very Blah isn't it?

Someone needs to go back to the editing suite - as Madeline the girl they cast as chippy know-it-all was shown to be fun and not at all the mardarse from the first few episodes.

Did find the near passing out due to clunge strangulation quite amusing.

Can't open her eyes girl still was failing to open her eyes on camera, it's a special skill and she can't be long for this competition.

Makeovers next week. Then perhaps I'll be able to tell them apart.

foxybrown - 24 Jul 2012 17:48:13 (#533 of 967)

Can't open her eyes girl has a big mouth so maybe there for some time

Madeleine has terrible skin, even the slap couldn't hide it which is not a good advert for Revlon

Btw was there enough product placement in yesterday's show? Maybe not just a few more bits scattered round next week
