New series of ANTM starts on Monday, 9pm, Living TV (in the UK!).
The trailer features Mr Jay saying "You're wearing me out with how fabulous you are!"
Could he be any gayer if he painted himself with pink sparkly nail varnish and called himself Barbie? :-)
Ooh, and apparently Tyra hates quitters. Is it time to enquire after her pop career?

How awesome is it that there are (low quality) rips of all the remaining episodes in this season and most of the next on YouTube?
Cannot... resist... spoilering... self.
I have already seen Monday's episode!

Cycle 8, Episode 6
How dubbed was that elimination round? I have a theory that they only added the 'comic book effect' later to the photos and that's why everything Tyra said about the speech bubbles was dubbed in later.Hate of the week
: Jael. She's just not very good as a model. And she's annoying.Favourite of the week
: Rene. I love the fakeness of her weeping self. And yet it works, convincing everyone she has depth when she's as shallow as a puddle.

... is going to be on I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.
Which may be enough for me to actually watch that show!

Just how thin _is_ Jaslene?
I know models are skinny, but honestly, she looks like she's about to snap in half. It can't be healthy.
Also, she makes a disturbingly pretty boy. Very confusing. Also possibly not very healthy. :-)
I'm starting to warm to Natasha, particularly after her hip-hop posing, and making her own silver teeth out of a gum wrapper. I don't _want_ to like her, but I sort of do, a bit.

Cycle 8, Episode 5
I liked Renee's conversion - and her fall back into the dark side. Also the mazey craze of lasers. And Renee admitting the other girls didn't like her because she was a bitch.
I've got a real hate on for Britney (sorry, kauket
) because something about the way she piped up to say she came up with the half-in half-out bath shot rubbed me up te wrong way. I think she's a real diva when she's not whining and she may be my Hate of the Week.
Sadly these girls do not seem to be terribly bitchy (except for Renee). But the straightjacket picture was a moment almost worthy of Jade. "Don't worry, it's not tied..." Ha! Words fail me.

Cycle 8, Episode 4
A bit late for this but I need to get my snark in before next week.Hate of the week
Britney for the endless whining, hair hypocrisy, useless "it'll be okay" comments to grieving Jael, fake-illness during photo shoot and generally asshatery.Favourite of the week
Whitney for a genuine moment of sympathy and support on ANTM, praying with Jael to comfort her.Funniest moments
Renee's continued hate for all humanity
Natasha's ability to turn any criticism into praise
Renee asking Sarah if she even knew who Kate Moss was and Sarah's death-glare response.

Cycle 8, Episode 3
So I saw the episode last night and to my surprise Renee is starting to grow on me. Her hatred of all that is kind or decent - in fact of everything - is somehow endearing.( spoilers in cutCollapse )
Already the other models are blurring into one for me. What do you think of them. Who'se youre Favourite or Most Hated of the week? Has it changed from last week?

Cycle 8 - episode 2
Kathleen, Kathleen, don't leave us! How could Tyra have got rid of her. She was pretty, she was entertaining. I laughed like a drain when she confessed she didn't understand the photoshoot. Oh and when she said Nigel was so great because he was tall.
Renee is a bitch but after Jade, bitches aren't enough for me. They have to be certifiably crazy. I do enjoy how much she hates happiness though and bitches out Jael for being cheerful.
I predict neither of the plus sized girls will win and furthermore that they lose their 'expansive' 'plus sized personalities' in the process. Because that's what's happened every season before.

Inglewood, inglewood, up to nogood
So, what is the verdict on the new ANTM season?
There didn't seem to be so many 'tragic stories' this time around. I wonder why. No 'my mom died in a plane crash and used her body warmth to keep me alive'. Not even anyone 'blind', or with a chronic illness or even a skin condition. Who will warm the cockles of my frozen heart now?
However there were some actually pretty girls in there - a reassuring move.
But what about Natasha? Why are the judges acting as if she's comic. She's a walking talking tragedy. The fact that the only phrases she knew when she arrived in the US were "My name is Natasha" and "I love you". That broke my heart.
Tyra is trying to take Janice's crazy spot on the panel but she will never be able to bring the crazy as Janice could. Also it looks contrived.

ANTM Season 8
So, are we all very excited about season 8 starting tomorrow on Living? (Those of us in the UK, anyway!)

I am very close to giving up on BNTM
It's just so dreadful. The girls scream at each other an are incoherant. None of them look like models. Paula Hamilton scares me worse than Janice. Janice never stripped all her kit off during a photoshoot - hey, Janice, you missed a trick there.
It's just not at all good. Can anyone think of any mitigating factors? At all?
