Previously on America’s Next Top Model, Tyrant kicked off the competition with a lesson in self-esteem and body image. Obviously. Where would American girls be without Tyrant Banks! After a fairly lackluster photoshoot, apparent front-runner Anamaria got the boot. She was WAY too skinny… even for the cycle of high fashion. She was a bit of a cow, so I ain’t hating on Tyrant for that one. Crazy looking Ann emerged as the awkward one to beat. Can she get top photo two weeks in a row? Who will breakdown during the makeovers? Thirteen wannabes remain… who will be eliminated tonight?

We start off this week with Drew Barrymore talking about CoverGirl’s legendary bold lash blast bolder shade duo smoky shadowblast lashblast. Oops sorry. That was a commercial. That shit is crazy. I’d be really curious to see the market research on the CoverGirl campaigns. They throw so much tongue-twisting jargon and gimmicky slogans around in one commercial that it’s hard to follow. Any marketing folks want to chime in on this one? Lash blast away smoky shadow blast!

Previously on America’s Next Top Model, Tyrant introduced us to a whole new crop of wannabes. And you know what? Not a plus-sized girl among them. No fatties. No midgets. Just a busload of tall skinny girls with high fashion potential. Thank god. Can Tyrant really find the next couture sensation? Can she find that awkwardly beautiful diamond in the rough? Probably not. The only thing we know is that a bunch of waifs will scream, cry, yell at each other, and lust for Nigel Barker. Just like me! Who will be the first to go? Who will be America’s Next Top Model?

The title of this week’s episode is simply “Diane Von Furstenberg”. Saweet. Can’t wait to see her on the judging panel. Loved her on Project Runway. But first we have to get reacquainted with the 14 finalists as they move into their new pad in Venice Beach. Ugh. Back in California. This show is WAY better when it’s in NYC. Oh well. I’m actually kinda jealous of their new place. It’s gorge… AND they have a runway. I want a runway in my condo. Sigh. When I get married, there is going to be a runway. Walk off!

ANTM Cycle 15: Episode 2 Preview Pics

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Did catch the season premiere of ANTM Cycle 15 this week? It’s still early on, but I think this cycle has a lot of potential. Tyrant and company did a decent job weeding out their usual suspects of commercial girls and so-so pretty girls with interesting back stories.

In my opinion, there are a handful of girls that could legitimately make it as working high fashion models. Hopefully this year the eliminations are based on working viability instead of lame shizz like lack of personality or some other phony reason. My early favorites are Chelsey, AnaMaria, Kendal, Kayla and Rhianna.

Here we go again. America’s Next Top Model is back. The catfights are back. The stereotypical casting is back. The bitchy blog is back. Tyra Banks is back, but that is the last time we will use her fake name here at Homorazzi. To me, she will always be Tyrant. Why? Because she is a ridiculous caricature, fake, transparent with her editing, and way too prone to stupid gimmicks. Despite all that… we love her. And, we love Top Model. Still. Here we are at Cycle 15 and the show has YET to produce an actual supermodel. A lot of the girls are working, but there has been no Adriana or Gisele or Agyness. Tyrant has never picked a high fashion winner… Jaslene and midget Nicole were close, but not the real deal. Could this year be different? Will Tyrant’s newfound love for high fashion finally give us a REAL model? Or are we destined to relive the CoverGirl slash Walmart slash Seventeen failures of the past? Who else misses Elyse? Sigh.

Now we know what Tyra Banks will be doing when her talk show ends after next season. Her Fierceness announced today on her website that she has written a novel titled “Modelland“. Her first foray into publishing will combine her two loves, modeling and magic (haha). Think Hermoine attending the magical school of “Haute”warts.

Modelland” is the first of three fantasy novels TyTy has agreed to pen for Random House. They say write what you know, and Tyra definitely knows the fashion industry. She’s even basing some of the characters loosely on real people and models from her life. Can we expect a Miss Jay caricature or evil witch named Naomi Campbell? Heck, if Lauren Conrad can write a best seller, I’m sure Miss Fivehead can as well.

It wouldn’t be a trip to New Zealand if they didn’t mention Frodo and the gang. This week’s ANTM episode titled “Hobbits vs Models”, takes on the mystic of Middle Earth. On a random note, how awesome would it be to have “The Lord of the Rings” hobbits actually duke it out with the remaining five models. Now that’s a May sweeps stunt I’d love to see. From the pictures released today by The CW, it looks like its finally Tyra’s turn to photograph the women.

If the models are duking it out with the hobbits, who is Tyra’s LOTR equivalent? Cate Blanchett or the talking trees? I vote for the latter. Check after the jump to see which photograph is my personal favorite this week. As always, check back on Thursday morning to read Rich‘s take on the episode.

This has got to be the smartest move Tyra and Bankable Productions have made in the longest time. After a season of rotating guest judges, Vogue’s editor-at-large icon, Andre Leon Talley, is joining America’s Next Top Model for Cycle 14. Fashionistas and Vogue aficionados across the nation were probably wetting their designer panties when news broke out.

Personally, I am over-the-moon excited to see Leon Talley’s quips and critique at panel. I’ve been a huge fan of his ever since I started following fashion watching FashionTV. Besides Anna Wintour, Andre is fashion’s second biggest and most influential voice. He has been a front-row staple at all the major shows in Milan, New York, Paris and London for more than 25 years. In 2007, he was even ranked 45th in Out Magazine’s “50 Most Powerful Gay Men and Women in America”.

As excited as I am about Talley adding some actual fashion credibility to the farce ANTM has become, I’m a little worried about all the “testosterone” on the judging panel. Granted, both Jay Alexander and Andre Leon Talley aren’t the most masculine, but it would’ve been nice to hire a former or current supermodel to the mix. I guess Tyra is proving she’s the HBIC- Head Bitch In Charge- and not hiring a female judge. After both former ANTM judges, Janice Dickinson and Paulina Porizkova, publicly spoke out about Tyrant’s diva ways, she’s not risking another potential fallout with a fellow supermodel.
