Tyra Banks Says She's Such a Geek

Tyra Banks Says She's Such a Geek

On a recent episode of The Tyra Banks Show, Tyra celebrates what she calls "New School Geeks" by talking to three men who are re-defining the geek stereotype by being hip and sexy. She discusses how Hollywood is making it cool to be a geek and examines the new geek look that's becoming quite fashionable—let's hope it doesn't include the glasses below! Tyra even takes a geek quiz which includes questions ranging from how often you check your email to whether or not you watch Heroes, Babylon 5, Buffy re-runs, or bonus features on a DVD. Click here to take the "How Big Of A Geek Are You?" quiz, even though I think "geek status" is to each his own. To check out Tyra's geek quiz answers, just

Tyra is a good looking woman and also very arrogant and full of herself. When her show starts and she comes out she just lets people cheer her on for quite a while, I didn't time it but that is long. She likes to shake her hips and acts like she is THE most beautiful woman in the world. She has no class for the most part, she tells people how to burp and fart? They way she was talking about this particular subject I think she has major gas problems. Tyra is also quick to pull her clothes up to show her spanx also. I think she is disgusting and that weave and the bangs are just too thick. She looks like got the weave from the birds nests. It seems like she found a big one that she turned upside down and than with other nests she just wove long hair into it and put it on her head. Its is too bad because it hides her pretty face and also her forehead. I know it is big but she does not have to cover it up with all those bangs. Besides people are saying that she is nt very friendly with their audiences unless the cameras are rolling. She keeps getting her make-up retouched every 10 minutes or so and in between takes she just sits on her chair and ignores the audience. What a Bitch!

O_O Oh yeah, Tyra Banks is *such* a geek. And I'm the queen of England. When Tyra Banks starts reading TechCrunch & GeekSugar, watching the SciFi channel more than she reads Vogue, and playing video games, then she and I can have a talk. Until then, meh, yeah right.

has anyone ever read dictionary.com's definition of a geek. HILARIOUS. I think tyra falls under the third. geek Slang.–noun1.a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, esp. one who is perceived to be overly intellectual.2.a computer expert or enthusiast (a term of pride as self-reference, but often considered offensive when used by outsiders.)3.a carnival performer who performs sensationally morbid or disgusting acts, as biting off the head of a live chicken.

Tyra totally grates on my nerves. She's so incredibly fake and condescending to her guests. That geek quiz was lame.
