Rob Evans must be replacing Nigel Barker. He’s hot. He’s a Brit. He’s a model. Maybe Tyra felt Nigel was aging out and this man will serve as his young luscious replacement.
He comes from a long line of demi-Gods.
According to my research, with Miss J out, the “movement mentor” will now be Jonte. Apparently when Tyrant said she wanted to go in a new direction, she may have gotten lost and spun in circles.
Oh yes, light years different from our beloved Miss J.
Somewhere in this mix up is a new social media correspondent. I’m not sure what he’s supposed to do, but the position has been filled by Bryanboy, a fashion blogger who I suspect just wanted to be a model, so he started his own blog of him modeling clothes and somehow it’s working.
In addition to all the new faces, there’s a whole other element to ANTM that still has me scratching my head. Apparently, fans of the show have had access to ALL the pictures of the contestants in real time as the photo shoots were conducted throughout the summer. They could vote on the photos that they liked best and this could potentially save a girl who might otherwise be sent home. Also there’s something about bringing girls back from the dead if their picture gets a lot of votes. I don’t really understand how it works and we’ll all have to pay close attention to Tyrant’s explanation at the start of the cycle. Hopefully it will make sense.
But don’t hold your breath.
So at this very moment, you can hunt down all the pics of all the girls in all the photo shoots. To eliminate spoilers, all the girls participate in all the shoots, so you don’t see who has already gotten the ax. I guess it’s good for the girls, as they’ll still get experience and the valuable lessons to be had at a photo shoot, but I imagine it would also be disheartening to have to continue to work when you know you are already out.
Tyra seems to have completely ignored the likeability quotient of tv that works. Since we don’t know these girls from Adam, we may vote for a great picture of a horrible girl and be saving the one girl we all wish would just shut up and leave already. To me the whole idea is bizarre, but I’m interested to see how it works.
By the way, in case you haven’t heard, this cycle’s theme is college girls. I’m looking forward to stimulating, intellectual, and witty repartee that this sort of crop of girls is sure to produce.
Are you ready for this season’s version of ANTM? The show will be in some very interesting hands . . .
