At the start of the last season of America's Next Top Model (er, cycle 10 — ugh, I hate using the word cycle!), I distinctly remember coming away from the premiere episode feeling like those girls were really feisty and ready to snap and make some noise and get up in faces and stuff. In the opening episode alone, there were, like, four shouting matches. So last night's season premiere was interesting, because the vibe was totally different this time around.
And can we say hallelujah for Tyra right now? I never thought I'd say this, but her brand of crazy was actually a really fun, hilarious, welcome escape from all the intense news that I've felt bombarded with this week.
There was something decidedly cheery about last night's episode, and even though it was pretty long, I was totally entertained the entire night. I mean, we had a futuristic "top secret training facility," a "Glaminator 11.0," and a "state-of-the-art runaway" that "processed data." Tyra talked like a robot to root out the initial group, and then we got an honest to goodness photo shoot and Nigel! Love Nigel. Oh, and I'm really glad Jay's hair eventually went back to normal. They probably focus-grouped his first style and learned it scared the children.
Anyway, it's time to test your knowledge on the challenges, the new girls, etc. You can check out more photos from the premiere here, take Bella's quiz here, and discuss the episode in the comments after you take my quiz!
