Tyra Banks Reveals Contestants For America’s Next Top Model 9

The new season of America’s Next Top Model starts on September 19th. Yesterday the 13 contestants for the upcoming season were revealed. Given that none of the winners have really become TOP models, I’m thinking why these girls rush to compete in the first place, but then look at the fine print and there is that $100,000 contract - read, money in the bank - awaiting the winner. Of course the modeling career could amount to something - Eva’s done a great job working her new connects and looks every part the model/her decision to cut Tyra and Benny Medina as her manager could come back to hurt her - but it seems as though personality is the most important quality any of these girls could walk in the room with.

Toccara is a great example: gets booted mid-season and still gets a BET gig.

But we’re talking season 9 and other than Eva can you pick any of the previous winners out of the sea of other models in the mix?

Which brings it right back to personality.

If you’ve got it it lights up the screen, keeps people entertained and wanting to see more of you. It’s not just about desperately wanting to be the next Tyra, because honestly, that’s not gonna happen.

Judging by the first glimpses in the Meet the Models clip - that energy is gonna be hard to find.

Give it a show or two, maybe one of them will surprise us.

How is Sarah a plus size model?! She looks pretty slim to me.  And her breasts are obviously real, which is nice to see. (I hate when skinny women have a pair of silicone bags slapped on their ridiculously teensy frames.)
  I would love to see Sarah go far, The fashion industry needs to start moving on to women and girls who have some meat on their bones.  I am sick of looking at girls who look like 12 year old boys. I am also really tired of low cut jeans and tummy shirts. We’ve had 10 years of bellies showing.
Isn’t it a bit past time to change the style?!

I think it is time to bring back Janice Dickinson.  The rest of the judges put me to sleep.

I have watched every episode since season 1. Something about dressing someone up and making them pretty regardless if they hold natural beauty or not. Next year hopefully I’ll see my niece on the show she is so pretty but the thought of living with that many other girls just don’t turn her on. I can name every winner from every cycle and I just love the show.The only elimination that pissed me off was Nanna the African girl who was by far prettier than any of the modesl on the panel…I’m sorry but including you too Tyra!

KIMS MY SISTER YAAAA!!!!! THIS IS FREAKIN AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

Tyra,

For a different twist, consider doing a “brother-sister” or “mother daughter” combo as next top models.

21 Mene Wed, Sep 19, 2007 - 5:41 pm
