Anyone else really want to yell at Tyra right now? I will admit that Tyra knows what she’s talking about (even if she sounds ridiculous coming up with terms like “smeyes”). What I like about her as the host of America’s Next Top Model is that she doesn’t simply say they should fix something, she demonstrates as well. So when she says smile with your eyes and gives an example you can actually watch and say “oh, I get it now” even if you don’t know how to do it yourself.
What I don’t like is this incessant need to remind the girls of this season that they are short. Yes, they’re under 5″6′. Yes, in the real world of modeling they will compete with taller models, but come on!
WE KNOW THEY’RE SHORT! NOT EVERY CHALLENGE AND COMMENT NEEDS TO REMIND US OF THAT FACT!
Seriously. There are other things that the girls will need to know how to do when outside the world of America’s Next Top Model beyond looking taller and yet that is virtually the only critique they get whenever they’re in judging. In every other season they work on all these different elements of moving and posing and yet we haven’t really seen much of that yet.
Though, it was interesting to see them on the runway with the taller, real models. I was pretty impressed.
