America's Next Top Model - Season Premiere

jay.pngIt's finally that time again, a new season of ANTM (Cycle 11) premiered last night on the CW and they've really raised the bar this time.  We all know that this isn't your typical pretty-girl-made-supermodel show, oh no.  Part of the reason we keep coming back is the ridiculous antics of Tyra and crew. 

So what was the theme of this seasons opener?  Why the future of course!  Welcome to America's Next Top Model Institute of Technology with your hosts...or cyber judges... Miss. J Alexander and Jay Manuel!  Jay, I had a really hard time looking at you with that hair thing on your head, honey.  Luckily, thanks to you, I know how to smile with my eyes no matter how I'm really feeling.

But no amount of hair can cover up this seasons "shocker", the isis.pngtransgendered Isis (who I will personally be rooting for all the way).  We first saw 22 year old Isis last season on Cycle 10's "Homeless" photo shoot where she was actually one of the homeless women in the background.  She was so "fierce" in the shoot that she was invited to audition for this seasons ANTM.

From an interview in Us Weekly, Isis says "My cards were dealt differently," referring to being "a woman born physically male."

But it's not all Isis all the time.  Heading the pack of squealing girls are:
Josyln, 30-time auditioner and girl with the most outrageous southern accent,
Marjorie, American transplant with a confidence problem,
Elina, uber vegan and outed lesbian,
Hannah, "we don't have that in Alaska",
and Sheena, spicy Asian with a heart of gold.
There is no doubt this is going to be one of the most interesting and drama packed seasons with girls like Clark already displaying heavy amounts of ignorance, particularly toward Isis and strong personalities already getting the smack down like last nights loser, Shauran, who was ousted for her bizarre beauty pageant like behavior. 

"Hi, my name is Shauran and I am NOT America's Next Top Model."

P.S. I love you Nigel.

"Luckily, thanks to you, I know how to smile with my eyes no matter how I'm really feeling." Best line ever! I'll be using this in my head all day when dealing with disagreeable people. And my eyes WILL be smiling.
