Top Model, One ‘Plus-Sized’ Gal Left!
Really skinny girls dressing up as men. Yep, that’s my idea of entertainment.
My weird choice in TV shows aside, I think last week’s Top Model shoot should have been considered ‘adolesent-boy’ drag because not one of those beanpole girls could pull off a mature male look. Sure, Natasha’s hip-hop guy pose looked the most like a real dude, but that’s only when her body wasn’t included in the shot.
Which brings me to the elimination portion of the episode — buh-bye, Diana. It’s funny, but also not surprising that one of the ‘plus-sized’ models was voted off. After all, isn’t this show about finding the ‘ideal’ model? Ya know, the one who doesn’t eat, but still has a great personality and drive for success?
It’s nice that they have ‘bigger’ contestants, but let’s be realistic here. They’re the token ‘thick’ girls. The ones with the pretty faces whose sole purpose is to show us unsuspecting viewers that a big girl can make it to the top 15 or whatever. Come on, I’m not stupid; I’m on to you CW.
Anyway, tonight’s episode should be quite interesting since each model will have to come up with a “nickname for her persona.” Apparently, Twiggy explains to them how she became known as, well, Twiggy. Ha — I can imagine it now … “Um, I’d call myself Waifey,” “My nickname is Stringbean,” “I think Stickthin personifies me.”
If it’s not about being thin, I’m very curious to learn why Twiggy got her nickname.
