o canada, our home and native land

Canada's Next Top Model is a very very blatant rip-off of ANTM, just to let you know. The judging room is exactly the same...the whole "There are two photos in my hands. The girl whose name I don't call must immediately return to the house, pack her belongings and leave.", the photo screen, the way the stand, the judges table. It's all the same. What's different? Well, the judges. Jay Manuel is the host which pleases me so much because I can never have to much Jay. He's clearly been standing in the shadows while Tyra does her thing, rubbing his hands together and giggling "One day that will be ME" and that day has arrived! With Jay in the Tyra role, who's in the Jay role? Well, this will be nice because you all will remember from the first few cycles...Nole Marin! The Judge!
Apparently...he's Canadian. And desperate for work! It's always fun to see a familiar face.
The judges are Paul Alexander, a photographer, Jeanne Baker, a fashion correspondant and some very skinny model who I do not recognize.
I've spent over an hour scouring the Internet for pictures from the photoshoot (which I'll get to in a minute) and I can't find any that are available to save to personal computers. Verry frustrating. Well, actually I found one, but it's not of my favorite contestants.
Speaking of favorites, mine are...

Tara, the fierce sort-of Jade-from-cycle-6 lookalike
Rebecca, the actually-pretty-hideous, but has-an-awesome-haircut former hot-dog-maker who leaves-work-covered-in-blood. And just in case you didn't get enough -, here's-a-little-more.

Because this is Canada's Next Top Model, the first photoshoot was nude. Yep, that's the Canuck way, we jump right into it (or should I say out of our clothes). I'll continue my search for Tara and Rebecca's photoshoot pictures, but for now, here's Cori's.

What can I say? We're not really known as shy people...

oooh such excitement. Dude, people make fun of my canadian-ness and start singing the national anthem but they only know the first two lines so I always burst into song when they start mumbling something about canada. What? I'm proud of my heritage :)

I didn't even know there were Canadian stereotypes. I'll make sure to alert all of us Americans about your alleged nakedness so we can start making fun of you guys more often.

wait a minute, wait a minute. you mean that the canada's next top model has already started? SERIOUSLY? i missed it. and nole is back? at least it's nice to know that he's returned. however, i am kind of hoping that they will have like top canadian models as guests like jessica stam or daria werbowy. now that would be cool.

The model judge looks like Yasmin Warsame. That would be so awesome if it was, I love her! I can't believe Jay is the host, that is too perfect. Now I want to live in Canada :\

I wish we got this show in the U.S. of A. I hate when people say that, "U.S. of A." instead of plain old "U.S." or "U.S.A." but it seemed fitting.
I'm sure Tyra is shaking with fury about Jay usurping her spot in CNTM. WAIT. IS HE NOT COMING BACK TO ANTM?
PLEASE GOD NOOO. I need him.
Wow, first the match.com spokesperson, now CNTM host...he's an ambitious little orange Oompa-Loompa of a dude, isn't he?

good for the Canadians stripping their clothes off in the first episode, love that!!!

WHy, oh why can Canadians watch ANTM but USAers can't watch CNTM? And doesn't ANTM include Canadians by default? I mean Canada is in America and if they can include a Russian, for geebs sake. As you can probably tell, I am just very jealous that you still get a top model and Jay fix while I tearfully flick through channels every night searching for anything decent to watch. I like your picks!

WAT said...

Look at that pic of Cori at the end there. Wow. With a hot lean dude.

I'm so hot and bothered now...

Crazy Eddie said...

I'm not sure if that dude in the top pic, in the middle (with silver gayed out hair)is Paul Alexander, but my gosh, he's shooting glitter out of his ears. He's not just gay, he's THE GAY.

Love the pics... and afro.
