The 15th cycle of “America’s Next Top Model” debuted last week, and the show has never been less relevant. Nevertheless, it’s still chugging along, Tyra is still enamored with herself, and countless haggard young skinny women still consider it a viable way to begin a modeling career (it isn’t). As Rich from fourfour writes:
[The show's] gift to the world was not a parade of top models, but schadenfreude and general amazement at the things people will do to get on and stay on TV, and that’s not even mentioning the things they do in spite of themselves being on TV. These models may not look always look like models, but their insides are reliably freakish and gangly.
All of that is a too-long way for me to segue into reiterating a message that straight men have been sending the fashion industry for decades: “Big tits good, super-skinny bad.” Regarding the image above, we’ve already met the sickly thin Ann, who weighs less than 100 pounds even though she’s six-foot-two. Doing it MUCH better is Esther (left), who was kind enough to lift up her shirt and display the magic of underwire. But a static picture doesn’t really capture the magic of her assets. To the GIFmobile, Batman!
My sentiments exactly, Miss J.
