    They seem to ignore any mistakes by their chosen girls...mistakes that, if made by anyone else, would get them booted.

    It was so blatantly obvious last season that I cant believe the other contestants just didn't collectively quit...it was quite clear that unless Ann dropped dead (and even then they may have named her Top Corpse) she was taking the title--pathetic walk and all!

    You are exactly right. Whether the experience hurts them or helps them totally depends on whether the judges want them to win.

    Re: About the show.

    For me this show is all about the crazy
    I watch the British, Canadian and Australian versions ( I currently live in Singapore and you really dont get much choice at 4pm every day) and find them entertaining but the American version is something else
    Its about the bewilderment I feel at seeing these girls scream every time a Tyra mail arrives, then scream again when its criptic message is revealed even when they have no idea what it means. I honestly dont remember screaming that much when I was 18 at anything other than if I saw a spider
    The craziness of having these inexperienced runway models first ever catwalk being a gangplank they have to walk inside an orb or 200mts above the ground or a floating platform surrounded by fire. WTH??? Then have a judge tell them how badly they did and how important it is to still walk fierce even when scared to death
    The makeovers which is always my favourite episode, who will cry, who will look worse than they did before, and who will look exactly the same (usually an indicator of who is going home that episode)
    Then there is always trying to work out how many photos Tyra can have of Trya in the house
    I think there was a season where the photos were of all the prior winners but that didn't last long now its back to being Tyra. I even recall there being an series where her face was painted on the bottom of the pool. O, wait maybe I am just imagining the future

    Anyway, I just dont take it very serious but I do find it entertaining
