Weirdly enough, every one of tonight's wannabe photos looks better than any photo of any of those pretty-but-average giantesses who "cycled" through Tyra Land before.... The most interesting women are the most trouble, of course.
Rest assured, the show itself hasn’t changed. Producers know better than to violate certain television principles, and what makes this contest work is what always has: that hostess Tyra Banks is one fabulous brand of crazy.
Top Model runs smoothly enough so it doesn't need two hours, which means we spend too much time watching the contestants look at pictures of Tyra Banks on the wall of the house where they're staying.
