    Tyra

    TYRA BANKS

    Tyra is an excellent host of ANTM. She's got the looks and she is communicative. Imagine someone else as the host of this show, well I am having great difficulties in doing that. Just as the runway-diva Jay Alexander and the always entertaining Janice Dickinson with her "tell 'em how it is"-comments (Dr Phil-expression), makes this show really interesting, Tyra is somewhat of a quality sign. I guess that she is an authority to the contestants (at least those who acknowledge the advice of someone with tons of experience) and her connections open up a lot of doors for the show in terms of locations, people to work with etc. Because she is the host, you've got to follow it. Still, I know there are some of you who think she's in ANTM to prolong her exposure in the limelight - seeing her portfolio in the UPN site makes you wonder (she is not one of the contestants and she is already a top model, there is no need to show off anymore, why is the portfolio there, really?). It's not that I don't like seeing her, I admit: she is hot. The first time I ever saw her was in a swim wear campaign of Sweden's H&M back in the early 90's, she really hasn't lost any of her looks since then. And she's got a big forehead (April thread viewers might recognize the subject), but in does not make her look bad. Anyway, perhaps I've started a discussion about Tyra as a host/model. She is doing a great job.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I found the above pics at the site theplace.ru (it is in Russian, don't remember how I found it, but I did). In their forum you can find large pics like the ones of Tyra above. Even though it is in Russian, you'll be able to navigate the site and find pics of models/high fashion and other stuff.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I did not bother searching to see if there is already is a thread for Tyra in this forum, does that make me ignorant?

    Correction she was a top model, and not disputing that she ever was a top model, she was a top model, now however she isn't...She isn't in any campaigns, she didn't do any fashion shows during fashion week (besides VS)
    shes a Victoria Secrets model....which by all means isn't a bad job, but shes not a 'top model' anymore....thats where people get the idea that shes trying to extend her career, not to mention her soon to be released album that will probably flop

    I'm sure Tyrant Banks would dispute any claims contrary to her Top Model status. Simply saying the name Tyra Banks summons forth her image from an ELITE group of women who are the world's top models.
    Thus...she'll always be a Top Model

    Tyra as a contestant

    this is just a hypothetical case:
    • Tyra is 20 years old, and not yet discovered as a model.
    • A reality show starts searching for Americas Next Top Model.
    • She sends in an audition tape.
    • She is chosen to be on the show.

    Who would she be?
    Would she be like Camille, Robin, Kesse, or any other girl?
    What are your thoughts? Is she being this "nice" now because she's already made it, in other words, would she had been like Camille or worse, put in the hypothetical case I described (using every devious trick to get ahead of the competition)?

    From the "Um, Okay" Department:

    Tyra plans video love with male look-a-like

    Supermodel Tyra Banks has picked a male look-a-like to romance in her first music video.

    The stunner held auditions for her onscreen lover in new promo Shake Ya Body and admits she was transfixed by the chosen one, because he looks almost identical to her.

    She says, "He's called Damian. I booked him because he was gorgeous. We look just alike.

    "We have the same eye color and the same skin color. We looked like brother and sister. He was like my little twin."

    This is interesting, though I haven't seen the video (there was one site that supposedly previewed the video, but it didn't work), how much does he really look like Tyra. Has her previous attempts at breaking it in the music industry been anything but embarrassing (I don't know myself, I haven't heard/seen anything back in Sweden)? I am assuming that they have been embarrassing (these "crossover" attempts tend to be, changing from music to movies, and vice versa hardly ever works, JLO, don't know, is she really any good as an actor outside of sweet romantic movies: "Anaconda", anyone!, not your typical "character" actor).

    For those that participated in the "heated" debate about April's forehead, Tyra used to be teased about her's (was she teased about her forehead because it "implied intelligence" - this refers back to the discussion in April's thread), but she says this quirk is what set her apart from the competetition, that little "something" made her special (take notice bland faces!):

    Fredlun, is that Naomi Campbell? She looks horrible when you click on the photo for the close up. She reminds me of the craggly little female Gremlin from Gremlins 2.
