'America's Next Top Model' Recap- Walking Down Buildings

August 10th, 2013 11:15am EDT
antm
'America’s Next Top Model' didn’t waste any time incorporating buildings into Cycle 20. This week, there’s a really tall building and the 16 remaining contestants will walk down that building. This episode combines fear with posing. Somewhere out there, a guy with big glasses and a hat that looks like a hammock has invented the word ‘fearosing’. It’s week 2 of 'ANTM' and I’ve already run out of things to type.

The contestants face their challenge. A lot of them cry. There’s crying in modeling, apparently. Don says, “God be with me.” I hope some kid’s dog didn’t die after getting hit by a c...

14 Of Our Favorite Celebrity Fiveheads

Chrissy Teigen
What's a 'fivehead'? Well, you've heard of a forehead, right? So then a fivehead must be a little bit bigger (there are even a few sixheads out there, as we'll point out later).

Some could be leased out to companies looking to increase their business, and others could be used as weapons. And perhaps some have the gift of echolocation.

We're not saying these people are unattractive because of their copious craniums, its just all in good fun.

You'll also be surprised to find out that absolutely NONE of these images have been photoshopped.

What's the first thing you think of when Katy Perry, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Christina Hendricks, Halle Berry or Kate Upton is mentioned?

Right, "boobs."

Thanks to magazines like Maxim, Esquire, Cosmopolitan, GQ and Playboy -- to name just a handful -- celebrity breastesses are constantly shoved in our faces.

Many stars get accused of having fake ones, like Salma Hayek; who swears hers are real and says they're "a present from God."

Others are obviously real (Katy Perry), while some are obviously fake (Mariah Carey).

But in the end it doesn't really matter if they look glorious.

TIME magazine recently picked the 100 most influential people in the world of fashion since 1923, the year the magazine launched. Gisele Bundchen topped the list of models, and we must agree with thier choice.

'America's Next Top Model' Recap: O Canada!

March 29th, 2012 10:39am EDT

This week's installment of ANTM was a surprisingly civilized episode, was it not? Drama was minimal, tongues were in check, and everyone had a kind word to say about everyone; which is only fitting because the entire episode took place in Canada. Well it wasn't entirely drama-free, there were a few requisite tears sprinkled gently throughout, but in general wasn't this pretty tame and almost blasé?

First, the girls were treated to an all expenses paid round trip to Canada!! Oh you guys, can you even imagine the life of a model? Always jet-setting off to fantastic places... personally I was...

'Supernatural' 7.17 Recap: March Madness

March 24th, 2012 8:46am EDT
padalecki
I may have been too harsh on “Supernatural” last week. I say this as I’m absolutely humming with afterglow from magic of “The Born-Again Identity.” This episode was the proverbial flowers-and-candy gesture that had me at hello. “Supernatural” fans should know by now that I can never stay mad at it.

The show opens without the squishy death of a hapless stranger, but with a haggard Sam Winchester wobbly running through Crack Alley. You know you look like death warmed over when a drug dealer worries about you and offers complimentary goofballs so you can sleep. Mark Pellegrino returns...

'America's Next Top Model' Recap: The Resurrection Of King Tut - 'J. Alexander'

March 22nd, 2012 11:12am EDT
America's Next Top Model
Confession! I am starting to fall so hard for Tyra. She is such a deranged and delightful combination of avant garde fashion and non-sequitor observations (and often inspired burns), coupled with the nurturing wing of a mother hen. I really don't know where she's been all my life.

This week opened on reflections of contestants past. Everyone was a little bit introspective about the abrupt departure of Louise (devotees of this little blog corner may know her better under her stage name 'Angela Chases mom, Patty Chase') and vowed to use her tantrum as a lesson to themselves to conduct thems...

Super mogul model time, guys! That was theme of this carnival show. Tyra ascended her Harvard Business School mountain top, handed down amazing, nonsensical nicknames to highlight the contestants' attributes. Sidebar: I have to say when I entered into this I was ready to hate hard on Tyra. I have to say, she is kind of incredible. She's maternal and quirky and a little bit brilliant and absolutely, delightfully bats**t. I also think she can shoot fire out of her eyeballs. She's like a fairy tale villain that are you're always secretly rooting for. Anyway, Tyra donned a canary yellow cape, a...

Full disclosure: I'm pretty well versed when it comes to reality TV (tee-vee). Well, obviously, you may be thinking to yourself. Here you are telling people what all the self-respecting invalids and tweens (aka the only demographic this show is still attracting) already know: what happened on America's Next Top Model: Cycle 18. For free. You must have an advanced degree in useless cultural analysis from the school of apathetic knocks. I don't mean to brag but, but I've seen a LOT of television. You may be even more thrilled to learn that I've even held bottom-feeding posts on a few marginal...
