The 5 Most Valubable Things I've Learned From Watching America's Next Top Model

Today is Tyra Banks’s 40th birthday, and in honor of Tyra reaching the big 4-0 while managing to still be one of the most beautiful women in the world, it’s time to celebrate her greatest gift to pop culture. Because even though you may feel as if those Saturdays spent on the couch watching unfairly skinny girls compete in weirdo challenges and photo shoots were an unproductive waste of time, I’m here to tell you that you probably learned a lot. I know I sure did. More »

11 Tweets That Make Us Wonder If Tyra Banks Is In On Her Own Twitter

If you’re not following Tyra Banks on Twitter right now, you should probably fix that. Her feed is a brilliant collection of deep observations on everything from posing for pictures to not wanting to go to the gym to the act of tweeting itself. And did I mention it’s hilarious? Tyra was the first celebrity I followed on Twitter. And I haven’t regretted a single minute of it. Her tweets are hilarious, that I’m sure about, but what I’m not so sure about is whether or not Tyra is in on it. More »

America's Next Top Model All Stars Recap: A Winner Is Crowned, Sorta

Here’s the thing about reality competitions: as much fun as they are most of the way through, they always kind of bore me by the end. Sometimes I don’t even watch Top Model season finales. (I know. But I feel like this is a safe space.) Anyway, the finale of Top Model’s first All Stars cycle was reasonably entertaining, although the biggest twist happened off-screen. I mean, Tyra had Angelea killed, right? Just want to make sure we’re all on the same page. But more on that in a bit. More »

America's Next Top Model All Stars Recap: Thumb Sucker

In Wednesday night’s thrilling penultimate episode of America’s Next Top Model All Stars, we learned what vengeful goddess Tyra’s endgame really was—why she assembled these familiar faces and spirited them away to the enchanted island of Crete. If you’d guessed it had something to do with filming a glorified commercial for her bestselling novel Modelland, you’d be Tiresias, the blind soothsayer. But let’s backtrack a bit. More »

America's Next Top Model All Stars Recap: Greek Salad Tragedy

When an episode of Top Model begins with one of the contestants talking about how she’s never gotten best photo but how she takes comfort in all her adoring fans, you know she’s not long for this competition. And let’s be real, Shannon—your refusal to pose in underwear was never the noblest of causes. Changing lives, one fully-clothed photo at a time. But hey, I’m probably just bitter that I don’t get thousands of emails from girls calling me a role model. I get a couple emails a week telling me I’m an asshole, though, so I kind of know how it feels? More »

Some pretty amazing things happened on Wednesday night’s episode of America’s Next Top Model All Stars: Allison gave us Honey Blood, Lisa learned to challenge her inner NeNe, and Bianca fellated a pickle.

America's Next Top Model All Stars Recap: Coco Rocha Angles

At some point while they were planning this season of America’s Next Top Model, the producers must have decided that by this point in the cycle, several of the contestants would be at each other’s throats. And so we got a perfectly timed episode built around aggression, with the models playing flag football and then participating in a bitch fight-themed photo shoot. How did they know these volatile personalities would erupt when forced into competition with one another?! More »

America's Next Top Model All Stars Recap: The Biggest, Hottest Thing

It’s not even Halloween yet, and America’s Next Top Model already received an otherworldly visitor when the ghost of Michael Jackson showed up at this week’s photo shoot. OK, I can’t confirm that, but I’m pretty sure La Toya is possessed by something. Also, is it Christmas, too? These contestants’ incessant bickering is the gift that keeps on giving. More »

American’s Next Top Model All Stars Recap: We’ll Always Have Haters

American's Next Top Model All Stars Recap: We'll Always Have Haters

In case you missed last week’s episode of America’s Next Top Model All Stars, Isis is here to remind you that this is a competition. “It’s not safe for anybody,” she explained. “This time around I’m here to win it.” I have this theory that reality contestants are just given a list of clichés to read through, so that producers can later sprinkle them throughout the season. I don’t need to hear that the models want to win, because that is the basic premise of the show. What I need is to hear Allison say, “I know I’m very strange” while wearing a Muppet-y bear hat. Once again, Top Model delivers. More »
