I’m curious to check in with ANTM after many years of ignoring it to see if it is a show that’s still worth watching. I’m not sure if this will be a recap, it may be more of a review. I’ll know more once I’ve seen it.
Okay, I watched the entire thing and I loved it. It’s impossible to recap until we get down to the finalists. But I was mesmerized the entire time. This will be a hard show for me to recap because you really need to have your eyes on the TV at all times. But I will definitely be looking forward to the episodes.
Tyra is still Tyra in all her over inflated ego glory. She’s back, and she’s the boss, applesauce. I love Ashley Graham. I didn’t mind the new silver headed guy, Drew Eliot. I might could get used to Law Roach. The panel will never measure up to the iconic originals, but I am in. Apparently, the catch phrase Tyra is trying to make happen this season is, “next level fierceness.” Let’s hope she doesn’t continue her quest to make that a thing, but you know it is going to be repeated ad nauseam on every episode.
I loved how they axed Tami Roman’s daughter right off the bat. I do not see what they see in Coura. Liz is batshit crazy.
This week we mainly saw all the hopefuls and then it was cut down to 14 after some odd ball photoshoot where everyone wore a freaky costume. Drew says this is their opportunity to show their true selves. Um, they look like peacocks and characters from Rocky Horror Picture Show and Lady Gaga video extras. This is the complete opposite of being their true selves, Drew. The peacock and some other chick who got a bad costume were Auf’d immediately. They were not allowed to stomp in the fashion show.
There is already a ton of crazy in the house and Liz is trying to take the title of head nutjob. It looks like a good season. I cannot wait until the exceedingly cruel episode where they make them cut or dye their hair, just to prove Tyra owns them.
Spoiler Alert! I was so sad to see Erin leave. She was a beautiful 34-year-old mother. Then Tyra comes to tell her she is sorry, as she is loading her bags on to the elevator. She was so graceful and kind to Tyra. Then Tyra whips out her photo and says she is staying. There are 15 girls staying in the competition. I was so happy for her!
Did Rio not make the cut? I liked her and she has so many talking heads! But I don’t see her in the photo above. Is that photo from the wrong season? Yes it was. I pulled a photo from this season and all is good, Rio is still there. I predict she will win.
Let me know if you will be watching.
