Since the title of the thread has "possible spoilers" in it, I think we're okay to do away with the spoiler tags. Those who don't want to know, should stay away from the thread
I read a blind rumor yesterday that this all-star season may be the final season. They didn't say it was ANTM, but all of the clues sure pointed that way. This show has become a caricature of itself, but I still enjoy it...mostly.
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
They were having castings for the next regular cycle in February and March of this year which would be the cycle after the "all stars" season (yeah, I'm putting the all stars in quotes because these contestants overall do not warrant that title). They were referring to it as Cycle 17 however which would place it before the "all stars" season...maybe "all stars" is not considered a cycle. Don't know. I think the last couple of seasons have better in terms of overall quality of contestants. Personally I love Molly and Brittany this year (and Hannah most times though her hair-in-bunches hairstyle annoys the heck out of me).
Thanks for posting that link though, Critical. I didn't think it was that Brittany who was returning - I thought it was the one with the red weave. So there are a few people who I can look forward to (Brittany, Shannon, Laura). I guess I'll check out the first couple of episodes at least.

My biggest worry is that a lot of these girls are much older now... but on the flip side, a lot of these girls have been working models post show, so maybe they can extend their careers...
Click to see Spoiler:Definitely rooting for Allison! Loved her in her season.
Is it terrible that I don't remember who most of these girls are?
Wasn't sure where to put this, but this might be the best place.
At the CW upfront presentations today, Tyra Banks addressed the crowd in promotion of the all-star cycle of America's Next Top Model to air this fall, and promised that cycle 17 will mark the end of the show's existence as its most basis premise:
"We will never have another normal cycle of America's Next Top Model again," she said, perhaps the first person in history to apply the term "normal" to the show.

Like the source says, I wonder what this means?
