After going through a lot of the threads, I think that all the arguments over how Shandi, April, Yoanna, etc., shouldn't be a top model just because they aren't a "good role model" are ridiculous. It seems like if you win the competition, it automatically means that a million young teenage girls will be ridiculously stupid enough (like the "becoming" contestants) to lose all sense of themselves and turn into little zombies that model themselves after you. Get a grip...people are people, and the best type of "role model" is the one who are themselves, cuss words/bad behavior and all. Since when did being a celebrity include the responsibility over some poor girl who's parents never ingrained in her the idea that modeling yourself after a famous person is probably the most ridiculous thing you can do? Admiration for someone's talent is fine, but I'd like to think parents have a better handle on how impressionable there kids are.
