To Believe, Or Not To Believe

America’s Next Top Model is in the news and it’s not for another spin-off. It appears the rumor mills are running rapid and I don’t think Tyra can hide from this one. Former judge of Tyra Banks’ hit TV show, America’s Next Top Model, Janice Dickinson has begun to leak some crucial information about the ‘behind’ the scenes of the show. As we have become familiarized with Tyra’s way of things, whether normal or outlandish, it is still surprising to hear that America’s Next Top Model is already in its 17th cycle (America’s Next Top Model runs in cycles not seasons). The former super model and cover girl Janice Dickinson is better known to this generation as a house guest on VH1’s The Surreal Life and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, had some beans to spill when it came to Tyra’s show (ANTM). Self proclaimed as the world’s first supermodel, Janice Dickinson does not shy away from the public, even when situations no longer have much at all to do with her. Janice has recently leaked some truly vital information about how the show works and in light of the odd finale just the other night, maybe Janice isn’t just reaching for attention. Janice told the press, “CoverGirl are the people that choose the [winner]…Not any of the judges, not what Tyra says. It’s who CoverGirl thinks should win.” Well, as CoverGirl is the team with the most at stake by using a competition winner as their new face, the news doesn’t sound so surprising. However, that does not mean the news isn’t disappointing.

As the finale aired just a few nights ago ANTM fans are still in quite a bit of shock as well as being on a Curious George kind of tip. Everyone wants to know, what did Angelea do? The finale made it pretty clear who the winner should have been (Angelea), but for some reason after watching the insane marathon Tyra put the girls through (opposed to a regular catwalk, Tyra had the girls perform a triathlon as their final challenge – swim, fly, & then walk) the producers decided to cut to a more recently shot finale excluding Angelea – the only girl that performed the triathlon without mishap. Supposedly Angelea leaked information about the results of cycle 17 on Facebook, but all  we could get from ANTM is a statement from Nigel Barker (famed fashion photographer) saying, “It turns out, our production team and the network learned information from Angelea that disqualifies her from the competition.”  Thanks ANTM for being so informative…
