America's Next Top Model is back and the girls are skinnier then ever. Just looking at these girls makes me feel fat. The prizes for the Cycle 15 winner are better then they have ever been. In addition to the $100,000 Cover Girl contract the winner will also receive an IMG modeling contract and a high fashion layout in Italian Vogue. Normally Tyra throws a plus size model or two in there to shake things up a bit and so far they have made it pretty far with Whitney being the first plus size model ever to win on Cycle 10. This time around there is no plus size model among this gaggle of skinnie minnies. My guess is that Italian Vogue has something to do with that. Glamour Magazine may have gotten on board with size acceptance for their models but I doubt that Italian Vogue is even close to making that leap.
There is already drama going on of course. One girl read the diary of another then soon after admitting that she blatantly invaded her privacy accused her of being a racist. The show features the tallest contestant ever at 6'2" who also has the smallest waist ever. I can only describe this girl as a walking skeleton. Not only might she be too tall for modeling she also might be too skinny. The usual group of characters showed up for their shot as official Top Model cast members. The diva. The shy weird one. The girl with an attitude that won't quit and another who is way too cocky. There are a few small town girls sprinkled in there and even an Ivy League rich girl. There are two mom's and neither one with a single stretch mark to speak of and stomachs that don't look like they ever held a child. Two of the girls are sisters. This cycle also sees the biggest bra size ever with one girl at a 34G. I can't wait to see who cries during the make over episode. There is always at least one.
The season premiere was just last week and the final girls chosen from last week will move into what is sure to be a killer
house mansion on tonight's episode so there is still time to tune in and watch the drama unfold. I love this show! I've been watching since Cycle 1. I've got it programmed into my DVR and will be posted up on the couch every Wednesday at 8:00 pm watching from now until the very last photo shoot and runway stomp to the death. A new show called Hell Cats about a College competitive cheer squad comes on right after on the same channel that I can feel myself getting sucked into but the jury is still out on that one.
