For those of you who don’t know, a new cycle of America’s Next Top Model commences Wednesday, September 21st. TVgasm will be here to cover the whole fabulous season. You know how much TVgasm loves giveaways, so we decided that we would have a little contest in honor of the new season. The winner gets to meet Tyra Banks. Seriously, do I need to say more? Details come after the jump.Now I know that I titled the post “Win a Date With Tyra Banks,” but you couldn’t honestly think that I would give away a chance to see Tyra. Yes, this is the old bait and switch. I love the TVgasm readers, but sometimes I just have to be selfish. Besides, it’s not like I actually have a date with Tyra to give away. What I thought I would do is enlist the TVgasm faithful to help me win a date with Tyra Banks, but yes, there will be a little something in it for you.
In the push to gain Emmy nominations, producers for pretty much every show on television send screeners out to would-be voters in hopes of gaining some recognition for their cause. ANTM didn’t get an Emmy nomination, but they did send out screeners, and yours truly was able to get a hold of one. The package is a DVD in a custom box with a pullout of various pictures from the cycle 4 photo shoots. The episode on the DVD is the one where Tyra goes off on Tiffany, so it will be a great collector’s item for anybody who is a fan of the show. I always wanted to give it away to a TVgasm reader, but had never thought of a good contest until now.
Everybody knows that I love Tyra Banks, but try as I might, I can’t say that the feeling is mutual. I have thought of everything – show up at her office, leave my job and work on her television show, continually serenade her with a bossa nova interpretation of “Hello” from Lionel Richie – but I am worried that won’t be enough, or would only be worthy of a restraining order. In the end, I decided that it would be best to do it old school, love letter style. The only problem is that I can never seem get past “Dear Tyra, I would love to grab your ass. Let me count the ways.” As you can see, I have a ways to go.
Since TVgasm readers have known me for almost 15 months now, I thought I would ask for your help in writing a love letter to Ms. Banks. Actually, I am going to beg for some help writing a love letter to Ms. Banks. Send in your love letters. I will pick four or five, and then let the TVgasm readers decide which one is the best. I will send the winning love letter to Tyra at her production company and the person who wins will receive the ANTM Emmy screener for themselves. As an added bonus, if Tyra Banks actually decides the letter is worthy of a meeting and not a phone call to the FBI, I will name our first child after you. Now THAT is dedication.
So, send in your love letters from me to Tyra. Be funny, be serious, use first person, third person, it’s your choice. In a couple of weeks I will post my favorites, and the TVgasm readers will pick the winner. Some people may think this is crazy, but maybe it is so crazy that it will actually work. I thought I would at least give it a try.
