    Yeah! That would be awesome, too!

    For one I dont know if this is for cycle 6 or 7, or if its even true! But i wouldnt be surprised by it
    That sucks that they would be more focused on ratings and get some girl's hopes up about making it in the modeling world through their show--if they're going to look for people with dramatic personalities, then modeling capability is less important to them, and the girls may not be considered suitable for modeling (as the show indicates that they will). Eh, it sucks, but like you said, not surprising.

    That's a false rumour. They are focusing on looks and personality, like always.

Maybe cut it down to 8 or so then and let all of those girls do the photoshoots until the final 4, then let those four go all the way with every photoshoot to the end.

    Every cycle I wonder how someone would have done in a particular photoshoot that was already cut. A modeling competition wouldn't be considered fair if it was whittled down one girl at a time - each girl does all the challenges so that they are rated on the same criteria.
    A points system! I mean, who knows, girls who don't do well in the first photoshoots might actually improve to be better than the rest. But with one girl going every week, you'll never know. Brita and Ashley might have failed on the first photoshoot, but what if they did great in the later photoshoots. I personally think Brita would have rocked the walking the dog photoshoot in Cycle 4 if they kept her around. Such a big waste letting one girl go every week.

    I sure hope that they have challenges that incorporate actual aspects of modeling. Looking "fierce" after going through a muddy obstacle course? Yeah. Right. I'm sure Naomi does this all the time.

    Oh yeah, stop saying "fierce".

    I was watching some preview for the new mtv show 8th and Ocean(anyone plan on watching that?) and they had these twin models, would be interesting if Tyra and co. decide to cast twins for some next cycle.

    I HIGHLY disagree with all the people that say there shouldn't be a plus-sized girl on the show if she has no chance of winning. By even having a confident, beautiful plus-sized woman on the show - even if it's for only one day, it's enough for her to become an inspirational role-model for young girls out there. In two separate eps of the Tyra show, she had had two huuge fans who wanted to meet Tocarra and Diane because they themselves were insecure with their weight. If Diane and Tocarra were skinny models, they obviously wouldn't have appealed as much to all those girls out there with weight issues.

    It doesn't require winning just to get the message across that girls with curves can be beautiful and confident. I mean there are probably some very narrow-minded, shallow people out there that would never imagine a curvacious woman could be pretty AT ALL before seeing it for themselves. And like Tocarra said herself after elimination,"Someone has to start to break the barrier. It doesn't happen overnight. I'm just glad that I might have helped paved the way for someone else."

    I mean, similarly, back then there were probably people saying the same thing about black girls, that they would never be successful models, etc. I mean sure, we might not even live to see such a dramatic revolution in the modeling world for all we know but to say we shouldn't even bother trying is just foolish.

    And to create a separate competition to divide up plus-sized between skinny is just taking a HUUUGE step back. It's like separating people with piercing eyes and those with brown. People with piercing eyes will obviously have the advantage.

    What we really need are some judges that aren't so biased and can look past the whole weight issue and give them a reasonably fair chance. Tocarra didn't take very good photos but Diane was eliminated the ep where she improved! Because the two guest judges were saying,"She's not a model, she doesn't live it, she doesn't breath it." Absolutely ridiculous, considering Kim had some of the worst photos during then and didn't deserve to last that long.
