Model Watch: Tyra Chooses Slim Pickings and the Chuckle Sisters
There was a bitty poolside runway walk and a photo shoot for Cynthia Rowley designs, but since we all know you'll see jack shit that's truly interesting in the first episode of any reality show that actually shows the final-cut-before-actual cast process, lemme just break down the local gals we'll be following:
Ann (Dallas) -- The 6'2" wisp-thin 19-year-old who shocked audiences in the season preview when "Miss" J. Alexander was able to wrap his hands around her waist. The bit caused controversy thanks to the flawless editing skills of the CW, and Tyra Banks has since issued an apology. Whatever. Ann will surely fare well this season as it's the "high-fashion" cycle that will reward the unusual and non-pageant pretty. Competitors voiced that Ann may not be as tough as she looks and will surely crack under scrutiny, but she seems fairly skilled at deflecting the stares the girls were dishing out. I like her. I don't like that height and high metabolism run in her family, because, well, they don't in mine, but that's neither here nor there now, is it?
From other cities we've got a Princeton girl, a single-mom student, a girl from a past cycle that doesn't appear to have learned how to socialize and a bunch of other ladies who screech and go crazy whenever totally expected people walk into a room.
