Gurls Gone Wild
No, that’s not “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestant Willam being felt up by seventies icon Joyce DeWitt (although I kind of wish it was). That’s Chris and Nina from “America’s Next Top Model: Guys and Girls.”
This week’s gender-bending commercial was for “Questionable,” a made-up body spray that needs to be a real thing. Now that the nineties are back in style, gender non-specific perfumes like ck one should be right around the corner. My friend Rusty is a big fan of scents that don’t discriminate. That’s why you can always depend upon him smelling like a well-used deep fryer at KFC.
But I digress! This episode had its moments. There was plenty of good (Marvin licking Renee’s face; Marvin refusing to do anything to please Perez Hilton; Jourdan essentially being told by Tyra that there is no excuse to be a dumbass) and bad (Perez Hilton; Tyra’s eyebrows; the judges handing out perfect scores like they were candy). In the end, Alexandra was sent home for looking too much like Paul Sutera in “The Brady Bunch Movie.” I thought the resemblance was uncanny! The judges thought it was unacceptable.
Anyway, I’m curious to see when the models are going to do some actual modeling this season. So far everything has been so over-the-top that I’m really not sure if there’s an actual model in the bunch. I guess I need to see a beauty shot or an editorial shoot with the sort of styling that would require a model to sell the clothes. Every photo shoot so far has been an ego wank for the photographer and Johnny Wujek. I live for the camp value of this show, but c’mon! Has he produced a single shot this cycle that a model could put in a portfolio? I don’t think so.
Well, there’s always next week . . .
