Anyone who uses the terms "booty toochin" and "smize" (smiling with your eyes) can be my best friend, AKA Tyra Banks. Tyra is a crazy/fierce/wild woman, and I never want her to stop. Watching her is similar to viewing a train wreck (a beautiful train wreck), you cringe, but you know you just have to continue to watch.
We just can't get rid of Tyra, she's on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, TV (two shows)...
AND YES, SHE DOES SING! (Caution: Do not watch unless you are ready to 1. Become addicted to Tyra and her crazy ways, and 2. Shake your groove thang)
Although Tyra does many things besides modeling, I'm going to focus on her hit/addicting show America's Next Top Model (ANTM).
I'VE GOT TYRA ON THE BRAIN:
REPTILIAN: Let's be honest here, T. Banks is gorgeous and if you don't agree, than you are a liar.
LIMBIC: The opening scene is just crazy, and honestly, makes me want to fast forward sometimes, and sing along other times.
NEOCORTEX: I guess the hardest part of understanding this show is the idea of "Tyra Mail", a clue that is sent to the girls before there next photo shoot.
The entire show is based on getting that one image in order to stay in the modeling showdown.
Just from having this one show, Tyra has been able to turn it into a money making cow, she now has a daytime talk show on top of ANTM, all because her ratings are huge.
I don't have cable, so I watch ANTM through The CW's Website when I'm bored.
I'm surprised that America doesn't have their opinion voiced when it comes to choosing America's next top model, similar to other reality TV shows that are supposed to represent the states.
Tyra's Production company, Bankable Productions owns and produces ANTM, which gives Tyra free creative rein on the show.
Every episode is produced in the same manner: the girls that are going to be in the bottom two off are put into the spotlight, there is a modeling challenge, a photo shoot, and then the models meet with the judges to see who goes home. Throw in some drama about who ate who's granola bars or dumped cans of Red Bull down the sink, and you have ANTM - VOILA!
REALLY?! I can't stop watching ANTM. Ever.
I know it's ridiculous, but I really do love this show, and I will shout it from the roof tops. I realize that it isn't reality at all, but I don't care. This show is perfect to put on when you just don't want to think and just be entertained by what could possibly come out of Ms. Banks mouth.
This is not reality at all, it's a mindless reality TV show that is put into place to entertain short girls, like me, who want to watch tall girls work the camera.
"You wanna be on top?"
This is the basis of the whole show; of course they wanna be on top, they are competing to be America's next top model!
We have Tyra, a household full of skinny beautiful models, and a photographer judge who is dreamy, and has an accent, and people think TT Banks doesn't know what she is doing.
This photo has to be a joke.
Tyra ALWAYS says the same thing at the end of the episode when she is about to knock a bitch out of the competition, the layout is exactly the same for EVERY episode,
Tyra is continuously alluding to the fact that she is a strong woman AKA Fierce, which she is using as a leadership position to take charge with the contestants of ANTM.
STAY FIERCE AND KEEP SMIZING
