    I’m just shocked it hasn’t been canceled yet.

    If they had Martians for contestants then maybe I’d watch, otherwise I have no interest. And, they don’t let Black models win anymore so the contest is rigged to pull in White viewers. Same with American Idol.

    I love Tyra but I feel like she can’t tell us anything else about modeling into she start wearing wigs/sew-ins that don’t look like they’ve been fried. I never get why celebrities wigs/sew-ins look like roadkill with all of the money that they make

    If Tyra banks does one more selfie shot, I’m going to go through the photo and wring her skinny little neck.

    Over her. Glad for her success but she needs to retire away quietly.
