America's Next Top Model Begins Tonight!

Yay for ANTM! It has to be one of my favorite reality shows of all time. Mostly because I love to watch the photo shoots and to see the final results, which are almost always beautiful or interesting or, in some instances a complete mess. I like to watch the drama between the women in the house, and tonight's premiere should be FULL of drama.

Cycle 13 of America's Next Top Model is all about petite women. With the exception of Eva Pigford, (now Eva Marcille - guess 'pig' isn't conducive to getting modeling jobs) who won cycle 3 at a modest 5'6", most ANTM contestants have been well over 5'7". In fact, after Cycle 3, Tyra instated a rule that models had to be over 5'7" to even audition. Cycle 13 is going to be different, because instead of being OVER 5'7", the rules this season are that you have to be 5'7" or SHORTER. The result? A group of women who, as far as I can tell from the website, are petite, almost all very young (18), and "cute" more-so than "fierce", but under Tyra and Mr. Jay's tutelage, I'm sure some fierceness will be found.

In the NYC auditions earlier this year, it was all over the news that a riot broke out in the streets and the auditions had to be canceled. Tonight's audition episode is sure to give us all the dirt on those auditions. I'm dying to know what happened to spark such anger in these petite model wanna be's.

As always, I will be doing my best to post recaps and updates on the cycle on my blog, ANTM RECAPS, so please check it out and feel free to vote or comment anytime. ANTM makes me happy! I'm so glad it's back!
