Tyra Banks Yanks My Chain

The Comeback Candidates

After calling this past week’s episode “The Girl Who Comes Back,” no one came back on “America’s Next Top Model.”  Darian, Yvonne, Jessie, Leila, Destiny and Allyssa walked onto the set at the end of the show to join recent castoff Brittany, and then the credits rolled.  Tyra Banks yanked my chain!

I have to applaud Tyra for choosing a cliffhanger ending to this episode.  It made me more eager to tune into the show next week than I’ve been all season long!  I just hope that they give each girl her due and show the shots that the social media fans voted on.  It’s been a foregone conclusion that Leila was only voted out in order to bring her back in the game so that she could watch Kristin being ousted then battle Laura for the crown, but it would still be nice if they could flesh out the “Comeback Series” for those of us who can’t watch the show on the CW website, ie: Canadians.

But I digress!  Other highlights of the show included go-sees to bush-league designers, a very special P.S.A. from Johnny Wujek in a women’s prison featuring Kiara as the “shoplifter,” continued passive/aggressive strong arming from skinny-armed Victoria, more foreshadowing of Kristin’sbitch edit” comeuppance, and Tyra’s origami mullet panel dress — what the hell was that?

Next week the girls get irie when they visit Jamaica, mon.  Of course, the plus-sized girl and the real-sized girl won’t be anywhere near the beach for the subsequent bikini shoot.  On the other hand, we’re not going to have to see Brittany in bikini and we can all thank Zob for that!

  1. I really think Leila is the one who is coming back. Mostly becauseTyra these days is more like: “Hey dear fans,now after all this time, after all the bogus eliminations and handpicked winners, Im finally going to listen to you and give you what you want. Please keep watching my dumb show.”

    Also, there is something I realized watching all the episodes. Maybe its too obvious, but havent seen any comments about it:
    When tyra announces the prizes for the winner and mentions the contract with smashbox studio, they show a photo with a girl covering both of her eyes, and that girl looks a lot like Leila. In past cycles, theyve done similar thins to foreshadow the winner.

    If Leila really comes back the next episode my theory is going to make sense.
