America's Next Top Model returns tonight for
season cycle 11, which is funny, because I don't even feel like Tyra and her band of merry Jays were off my TV for that long. Did you miss them?
Regardless, ANTM is back, and so to prepare myself for the manic energy of this modeling show, I dug up some clips and reacquainted myself with Ms. Banks. And oh my gosh, is she full of craziness still. In the first clip, she's actually chasing a young contestant from Alaska around the judging room pretending to be a moose. The noises she makes are . . . I just . . . wow. You really just have to watch it. Also, be sure to note Jay Manuel's new hairstyle and let me know your initial reaction (did you flinch like I did?).
In the second clip Tyra talks us through her impressions of some of the new faces we'll meet tonight. She describes one model as too pretty and that it's their job on ANTM to give her that "ugly top model pretty and take away that pretty pretty." She also points out that one model has "that ghostly face, like that scary face" and that another has "got a Victoria's Secret runway model look."
Are you ready to re-enter this bonkers world of posing and Tyra-isms? To check out the previews for yourself,
