After watching this show and being an ATM fan (cycle 1 and 2), I found some interesting correlations. I love how the judges of the Sport Illustrated: Model Search actually relate to the Prizes won for the winner. Joel Wilkenfeld, president of Next Model Management, actually has enough qualification to critique the models who will be fit enough to join the agency. As well as Jule Campbell, founding editor of the Sport Illustrated swimsuit edition. Whereas in ATM the judges are Tyra Banks-who truly does not model anymore, but does mere Victoria Secrets, Janet Dickinson- 1st so called model in the world-who does nothing but bitch and continue to get botox injections because she is so jealous of the young models standing before her :phhht . In Sport Illustrated: Model Search the judges actually watch the model during photo shoot, in ATM they do not. In Sport Illustrated: Model Search the prize is so much better-a cover spread in the Sport Illustrated swimsuit edition (of course!), and a million-dollar modeling contract from NEXT Model Management. In ATM, they get a spread in Jane magazine (who reads that?). Remember Mercedes-2nd place in the ATM cycle 2 Ėguess where she is now? Last time I saw her in an IBM computer commercial, Target commercial and Kohlís. That not real modeling!!! Even Yoanna winner of ATM didnít get the recognition of ďAmericaís Top ModelĒ. (I hope thatís not the case for Eva-I adore her ). Iím not an ATM hater, but just compared to this show it makes it look really bad.
