    Modeling and acting are the same? Ahem, I beg to differ. Models have to know how to emote, using just their face and body language.

    I am SO with you on this. The point of the show, unless I am completely mistaken, is to find America's Next Top Model, no? And so we need to watch them "act" (if you can use that term for whatever Camille was doing) and shake their bums for all they are worth???? None of these girls, not a single one, would be a good choice for a music video. (Ahem, have you seen Outcasts' latest video? Any of the ANTM girls would look like a dancing skeleton next to any one of those bootylicious women. They might get knocked over). Let's face it -- fashion models are paid to be mobile clothes hangers. It is the rare exception where a model is successful at anything other than modeling. And it is also not the point of the show.

    Somehow I am left thinking, "what is wrong with this picture is there are no PICTURES." They keep cutting girls for not being "high fashion" and yet they are not DOING high fashion. I want to see more photography. Enough with the rather pointless diversions.

    Ahhh..... I feel so much better. That was really cathartic. Thanks for opening up the rant-zone, lifeisastory.

    Anyone starting to get the feeling this show is rigged? Like Tyra picked the winner before the show even started? It's a thought that OFTEN runs thru my mind when watching... That would be sad. We will never know.

    About the apparent hypocrisy and constant changing of the reasons behind why some of the contestants stay and some go...maybe the judges need to post their final reasons/standards for why they eliminating each model - bc they are constantly contradicting themselves and each other every week - "too sexy", "not sexy enough", "too hi fashion", "not hi fashion enough"...blah blah blah. I'm so dizzy with the bullsh*t my head is spinning!

    Also, really, as it's been said about a gagillion times, NONE of these women could be models...much less high fashion models. They are WAY too old.

    As for all the stupid hoop jumping and "challenges" that are completely un related to modelling in the slightest....Next thing you know, the models will have to do porn scenes, bc as we all know, models need to make the audience "fall in love with them"!

    I think the only two of them who would be cast in a video would be Mercedes and Sara. No way the others would be in one.

    Hey, Angie Everhart was the mole and it really showed how good of an actress she is. But overall, I'm also getting annoyed with the recent episodes of ANTM.

    Modeling and acting are the same? Ahem, I beg to differ. Models have to know how to emote, using just their face and body language. It's not the same as acting out dialog and kissing some beefcake soap actor on cue. It's not that one is better or more difficult than the other. But they are NOT the same. Anyone who thinks modeling and acting are two sides of the same coin need to pick up the phone and give Cindy Crawford a call. Anyone remember "Fair Game"? Yeah, me neither. Lemme think of all the supermodels I know of who've been in even ONE successful movie or tv show. Hmmmm... Angie Everheart? Nope. Kathy Ireland? Negatory. Elle MacPherson? Nuh-uh. Naomi Campbell? Puhleeze. The only one I can think of is Rebecca Romijin, and she had HOW many lines in X-Men?

    My point exactly.

    And then this week. What the hell is going on? They want to cut Yoanna because she's an inadequate video ho? That's the criteria for winning? Please. Someone connect the dots. Show me the connection between high fashion and booty shaking. Gee, what percentage of time do you suppose the average high fashion model spends shaking her butt in the background of some lousy pop video? And the blatant Tyra Tyra Tyra-ness of it all. Oy vay. I'm a Tyra fan, but I've had just about enough. If only I could warp out of this horrible alternate universe where America's Next Top Model has nothing to do with modeling and everything to do with TyraTyraTyra.

    I'm fed up, y'hear? Seriously. Next week's show had better be stellar, or I'm going to go all Jackie Chan on someone's ass. (Most likely that twit from Jane magazine, if I can find him.)

    (sigh.) I am spent.

    they wonna find the best top model. they wonna find someone who can do more then look great in shoots, know how to apply makeup, and strut down
    a runway sexy. i guess their looking for someone multitalented. a lot of people
    (including me)wants to see somebody who can do more than just model great.
    Plus, a lot of times, acting in commercials is part of modeling. so e acting helps develop them. the only bad thing about this show is that they eliminated Sara.

    Well, I'm imagining a show about modeling that only covered the fields that models excel in (no acting, dancing, etc..) and I'd have to say that to stretch that out into 10 episodes/mini-competitions would probably lead to a severe drop in ratings. Who wants to see repeated episodes on how to walk runway or pose for pictures? So yes, watching wannabe-models get harped on stuff that real models can barely do can be annoying, but hey, its a televised competition, and they gotta come up with stuff to compete for.

    did anyone see tyra on "the early show," on cbs, this
    week? one of her responses included a statement to
    effect that all of the antm "contests" were things she
    had to do during her career.

    personally, i don't have a problem with models being
    multi-faceted--acting, dancing...--as i think modeling
    encompasses many disciplines. if modeling were just
    about walking in heels, it could be accomplished, pretty
    much, by technology, these days.

    kthxbye.
