America's Next Top Model is Tyra's Pupet Model Government
Last night was the season finale of America's Next Top Model and for the first time in ANTM history the winner was a Plus Size model. Now before I start talking smack let me say that the winner Whitney is not really plus size. She is a normal size girl who at most wears a size 8. All I can say is that this season was such a calculated fraud of a cycle.
Over this past year Tyra Banks has been so very outspoken about weight and body issues. I can only imagine it's because for the first time in her life she actually has them. It seems like every time I turn on Tyra she is either crying about people kissing her fat ass, or wearing a red swimsuit with her weight on it, making her celebrity guests tell her how hot she still is, or she pushes her "So What" campaign. (This is where the girl from Boy Meets Girl gathers a mob of women off the street and makes them hold signs that say "So What I have fat ankles". )
Well now she has gone to far. When she deliberately rigs a television modeling reality contest to make a point. Really I could tell by week 6 that these other girls may actually have a chance at a "real" modeling career but, there was no way in hell that they were going to be ANTM. Which I guess is okay because what "real" modeling have any of these past winners ever done. All I can say Tyra is "How dare you!" If I can't trust reality TV to run an true modeling contest who can I trust?
