I've been waiting for someone to start a comparison thread. When I didn't see one earlier, I thought that I was the only one that was disappointed in this years show.Originally Posted by DarKensoul7
Hands down, Season I for me rocked!!! One year later, I still can recall Adrianne, Elyse and Robin. I was so invested in that season's show that I'd re-watch the episodes again and again.
This year...had some interest, but, I know that I no longer care for a TV series when I start to re-tape over the video before the tape is even half full! I'd just hang onto the episodes long enough to make intelligent posts or settle debates, and then, back to the rewind button for me.
In Season I, I was with Adrianne and Elyse from the beginning to the bitter end. In Season 2, I waffled between Shandi and Catie, then April and Yoanna. There just seemed to be so many :crybaby 's this year; when I'd rewatch a show, I gritted my teeth with all of the tears, tears, tears.
The only one that I felt had the right to cry was Mercedes.
I agree, this was like watching a marriage between ANTM and FEAR FACTOR. For a "normal" model, how many of them are submerged in water or suspended from wires? I just checked every single ad in my latest W magazine and the shots are either indoors, lounging on something, or outdoors, lounging on something. There's nary a Nemo in sight.
Of course, when the girls are chosen, there's no way in the world to determine if they make good 'press' when the show begins to air. The same thing is happening to me on American Idol: last year, I was split between Ruben and Clay from the trials. This year, although I watch, I don't even bother taping them or posting about them. They're all just clones to me, right now.
By the way, does anyone know if there's a link to find out what Elyse is up to?
