I know I said I wasn't going to blog about this cycle, but I can't resist a little review of my thoughts. I chose my favourites before, when Lipstick Bitches did a post about them and, based on looks alone, I chose Atalya and Dominique. I am very struck by how much Dominique looks like Lisa from cycle...(I can't even keep track of the cycles anymore)...from cycle When Nicole Won, And Was Therefore Corrupt and Wrong.
In fact, this whole cycle seems to be about the lookalikes. (I was very stoked to see Jael make a comeback...love her) Stacy Ann looks like Danielle from Cycle 6. Allison (who I like) looks like Sarah Silverman. Claire looks like someone but I just can't place it.
I'm sorry, and I know it's not her fault, but I can't look at Fatima without getting lightheaded. As soon as Tyra got a really serious look on her face and was like "You've had something serious happen to you, why don't you tell us about that?" I said "She's been circumsized". I could put two and two together...raised in Africa, Tyra's serious face. (On a sidenote, do you have to have something bad happen to you to make it on the show? Is there a section on the entry form saying "Check all applicable: Been raped, been molested, have an abusive boyfriend, parent doesn't approve of modelling, am a mother, parent on drugs, or OTHER".) I was incredibly disturbed, and I feel ill looking at her. And then I feel guilty for looking away whenever she's onscreen. HELLO, I watch ANTM to feel good about myself for not being a retarded, stuck-up, self-obsessed bitch. Stop trying to make me think about world issues.
Anyway, I might keep blogging about this cycle, I'm not sure. Let's see what strikes my fancy.
