I watched the premier last night. ANTM spin-off, produced by Ken Mok of 10x10 productions. Also reminds me of The Apprentice, with the format consisting of team challenges and ending in the judgment chamber where somebody is humiliated and fired.
What really drives me mad is the presumption that Americans are not capable of having sufficient taste to sit in judgment. We have 300 million pople in this country, and all three judges were foreign nationals! The Tyra stand-in is an Australian photographer who does Sports Illustrated bikini cover shots, and this guy is preaching high fashion photography? An Australian croc hunter, an Italian barber, and an Australian magazine editor. Go figure.
