With Thanksgiving and a filler recap episode airing last week, it feels like forever since we’ve received preview pics. So imagine my surprise and delight when I checked my email this morning and saw these ANTM goodies in my inbox. Definitely made this Monday more tolerable. Just in case you forgot, the lovely Dominique Reighard left us during the last panel. BOO. Now, we’re left with Allison, Angelea, Laura and Lisa in the competition fighting it out for that career-making grand prize. Hope you sense that hint of sarcasm.

Joining the girls this week is the hunky Tyson Beckford. Man, that guy is one fine piece of hot ass. Judging by the pictures, it seems that Tyra is back to her old tricks. She’s directing another motion editorial. So expect a lot of silly directing cues from Miss Banks as the Final 4 girls twirl about in their yellow chiffon dresses. Speaking of Tyrant, if you missed last week’s terrific post from our resident ANTM expert, Rich, you have to check it out. He crafts up 5 Ways To Improve ANTM. If you’re a long-time watcher of the show, you’ll appreciate it. Without further ado, here are this week’s episodic preview photos.

Previously on America’s Next Top Model, Tyrant waited until the final four before giving us the always lame recap episode. RECRAP. I refuse to blog about it. Instead, I think it’s time we address some issues with the lovely, the noted, the smizingly fiercely real Tyrant Banks and give her some tips on making ANTM great again. Who am I you ask? Just a disgruntled gay who actually loves the show and has never ever missed an episode in 17 seasons, but is growing so weary of the antics, the drama… and Tyrant’s blatant manipulations of the results and story lines. But there’s hope. Here are my Top 5 ways to improve America’s Next Top Model.

5 Ways To Improve ANTM

Let The Photographer Pick Best Pics

How many times have we seen Tyrant pull up a SUPER bad picture of a girl because it’s OBVIOUS she wants her in the bottom 2 or gone? It happened this season to Laura two episodes ago. As if that picture of her looking all twisted in the Greek salad was her best picture. Bullshit. Lisa and Bianca both tried to call out the show for the photo manipulations this year, but both were shot down. Once by Tyrant and once by Nigel. It’s so obvious the girls were right though. That’s why I think the photographers should be the ones to pick their favorite photos and have those submitted to panel. Take Tyrant’s heavy-handed manipulation out of the equation.

Previously on America’s Next Top Model, the nevergonnabes packed up their bags and flew to Greece for some final six action in a bowl of Greek Salad. Seriously. Tyrant had the girls being all sexy in a giant bowl of tomatoes, cucumbers, massive blocks of feta, and gallons of olive oil. If that doesn’t scream “Top Model”, I don’t know what does. The best part was the continuation of the “underwear versus bathing suit” saga. Oh Shannon. She has no problems wearing slutty bathing suits, but ask her to put on a sporty bra and full-on boy-type underwear and she gets all high and mighty. Gurl. You are messed up. Anyways, she finally got her covered-up ass booted from the competition… but not before Tyrant STRESSED that it wasn’t just about her refusing to pose in underwear. Gurl had never won a challenge or been called for first photo. What a disappointment she turned out to be! Only five girls remain. Who will falter right before the final four? Will it be Allison, our wide-eyed weird goddess? Or Lisa, the loud-mouthed manic attention seeker? Better yet, could this be the end of Angelea and her gut… I mean… “soft core”? Did you see that thing in the bowl of salad! Two words… sit ups. Can Laura ride her country bumpkin charm to the end or is this the end of Granny’s fashion show? Can Dominique continue to shed her dragalicious reputation and win it all? Who will be eliminated tonight?

Hey peeps. First up… sorry I wasn’t around to recap last week’s episode. It was a doozy, but I was off gallivanting around Toronto. It was amazing. Thanks for asking. In this week’s famous second paragraph, which normally features my random ramblings and rants, I would like to applaud all the boys out there participating in Movember. They’re ugly, they’re dirty, they’re covered in last night’s bed time snack, but damn… putting yourself out there for a worthy cause is awesome. I am NOT participating this year (had a couple weddings to look cute for), but I WILL be donating cold hard cash to make up for it. You should too. Check out the story Homorazzi did about some hot Vancouver boys growing MOs here and then donate here.

Both Dominique Reighard and Lisa D’Amato are still in the running to become ANTM’s first All-Star winner, but they’re also battling it out in a different arena. The two released brand new music videos in an attempt to become the next reality star pop star. Last week, I shared Dominique’s catchy “On Top of The World“, and today I have Lisa’s new clip. It was bad enough that I liked Dom’s song, but now I find myself saying that Lisa’s new track isn’t that bad either. What is wrong with me?

Tyra Banks seriously needs to consider creating a spin-off reality show from “America’s Next Top Model“. So far, her track record for creating budding recording artists is better than finding the next Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington. Both Dom and Lisa’s music career is off to a better start than most of Bravo’s Housewives. Except Kim Zolciak’s “Tardy For That Party” of course. That single is pure reality guilty pleasure heaven.

While Dominique’s track was more club pop friendly, Lisa’s single is more hip-hop ragga influenced. “Soldier” is off Lisa’s album, “Flippin’ The Bird” which you can purchase on iTunes. Does iTunes ever say “no” to anyone wanting to hock their music? If anyone knows, I’d love to know. In the meantime, check out both the ANTM All-Stars’ new music videos below. Not surprisingly, neither incorporates “Pot Ledom” in their lyrics or Keenan Cahill in the clip. WWTT (What Would Tyra Think).

I have some good news and bad news for you today. Good news is that you’re getting last night’s recap and next week’s preview all in the same post. Bad news is that you won’t get your weekly fix of Rich’s ANTM wisdom. Our ginger goddess is away in Toronto doing God knows what. My loins hurt just thinking about it.

We lined up another cast member to do a full recap, but technology proved to be an obstacle. Their PVR/DVR recorded a repeat instead of the new episode. And that’s the chain of events that leaves you stuck with me. Wah, wah, wah. I’m not even going to attempt to replicate the levels of fabulousity that Rich achieves in his weekly recaps. I’m just not that gay *wink*. Instead, I’m just going to briefly recap last night’s episode and cover major points.

Tyra Banks, look at what you’ve done. Just what the world needs, another reality star turned pop star. I knew the second Tyrant made the girls write their own songs and film an accompanying music video, it would ignite a few of their inner pop stars to come out. On cue, Dominique Reighard released her debut single and music video the day after the episode aired. Making matters worse… I actually don’t mind it. Dare I even say, I like it. UGH.

First off, let’s get the obvious out of the way. Girlfriend looks gorgeous in the video and the picture above. That’s one weave blow out that both RuPaul and Beyonce would be jealous of. FIERCE. On ANTM, the judges coined her Jayloncé (J. Lo & Beyonce) and that description couldn’t be any more appropriate, especially once you see the clip.

Photographer Derek Blanks makes his directing debut with Dominique’s “On Top Of The World“. It’s only fitting he directed it, since he appeared in an episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” during the “alter ego” photo shoot. That Bravo show gave birth to “Tardy For The Party“, which allowed every reality star to think they also can have a successful novelty single.

ANTM 17 Episode 9 Preview Pics: Opa! Crete!

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Ding, dong the wicked witch of ANTM is gone. Thank God, she’s outta there. I’m even more thankful that Alexandria didn’t get another free oversees trip. I wouldn’t want the amazing Greek people to be tormented by her. Can you believe we’re already at the point where the girls go to some “fashion mecca” for the final portion of the competition. Where did the time go? I can’t wait to her why Crete, Greece was chosen as this cycle’s international destination. Had I known the girls were going to be in Crete, I would’ve skipped out on Mykonos and sailed there instead. I had no idea ANTM was in Greece the same time I was there this past summer.

Overall I’m happy with most of the Final 6. I would swap out Shannon for Sheena and Laura for Kayla. I miss my lipstick lesbian and hoochie Asian. As you all know, I’m still rooting for Allison to win, but Dominique has really grown on me. I couldn’t stand her during her cycle, but this time around she’s so likable. I blame Tyra for giving her that awful makeover during her OG cycle. Long hair definitely suits her better.

Taking this week’s pictures is photographer Nikos Papadopoulos. I wonder if he’s the Greek Herb Ritts or Patrick Demarchelier. I guess we’ll find out next week. Normally, we get the finished judging photos a week in advance, but this week the CW didn’t provide them. I’m thinking Shannon refused to participate in this week’s underwear shoot and the network didn’t want to spoil it. She’s such a prude. Seriously. If you have a banging body, show it off. Take a look at the few preview pics sent to us below. Check out my Alexandria dig in one of the captions. LOL.

Previously on America’s Next Top Model, Kathy Griffin – who the gays normally love all sorts of all the time – was disappointingly boring as a guest judge. Tyrant must’ve threatened to sit on her face if she trashed the show too bad. Speaking of trash, we had a photo shoot dedicated to the heinously ridiculous Snooki and NeNe. Sounds like the noise my mom makes when she sneezes. Predictably, the trashiest girls, Angelea and Lisa did the best while our darling GLBT rep Kayla got the boot. I was pissed. But the good news is that it was a double elimination and Bianca, along with all her drama and egotistical rantings got sent packing too. Will Tyrant keep this train trucking towards trashy? Can Lisa function without Bianca to fight with? Will Angelea say “ghetto”? Only 7 nevergonnabes remain. Who will be eliminated tonight?

So? Spill it. How was everybody’s Halloween? I had a great time dressed as the amazing Leeloo Dallas. It was epic. I will NEVER forget my 2am walk down Granville (Vancouver’s straight club district) street in that wig, those heels, and those little white strips of ribbon. I’m a little pissed though at my fourth place finish (ahem… 3rd Runner Up) at the club’s costume contest. I got beat out by some trainwreck tranny Cleopatra, a robot, and a giant red bird. What. The. Fuck. No respect for the Multipass.

We start off this week recapping last week’s surprising double boot. They’re all giddy over Bianca’s ouster. Lisa lets us know that it is in fact “karma” that got her top photo. Ummm… no. It was because you got to be trashy. Then, out of nowhere, we get “internet sensation” Madison delivering this week’s Tyra Mail. Ummm. WTF. Never heard of you. Buh bye.
