Walking the "Tyra Tightrope" is tricky business. (Wow. That turned out to be an alliteration free-for-all!)Originally Posted by CCL
Tyra seems to want the public to view her as a wonderful, benevolent, accessible person. As a result (or maybe because she really is a nice person...who's to say), she seems to want the women to confide in her. But they should forget that this is just a long job interview process, and she's the big boss. It's a really strange situation.
I think the smart contestant will throw her some crumbs of emotion and enough of a story for her to think the person is good television without letting their emotions get out of hand enough for her to think that they're going to be trouble.
She got a bit burned by Shandi last time (although Shandi's meltdown was great TV), and I would think that she will be watching to see if any of them have insecurities that are big enough that they could lead to problems down the road.
