POP RHETORIC: Tyra's people
McGill Tribune - If I could do a case study on some of the alarming hypocrisy that characterizes media today, I would centre it on supermodel-turned-media mogul Tyra Banks. She truly embodies the modern rule of television: anyone willing to forego dignity, self-awareness, and all ironic detachments can potentially earn about $30 million a year.

Amy "Amis" Jenkins the third girl cut from 'America's Next Top Model'
Reality TV World - Mansfield, MA, USA - Amy "Amis" Jenkins was accused of not taking modeling seriously, causing the 20-year-old waitress from Bartlesville, OK to become the third contestant eliminated from America's Next Top Model's tenth season during last night's broadcast of The CW reality series.

"Walking away from this competition, I feel no bitterness, only huge amounts of gratitude," said Amis following her ouster.  "This has been the best thing to ever happen to me.  I've gained so much from the whole experience -- good, bad, whatever -- I wanted to absorb.  I was part of something bigger than myself, and who could ever want anything more

''America's Next Top Model'': Meat the Models
Entertainment Weekly - USA - Is it just me, or was this one of the most delicious episodes of America's Next Top Model ever? Let's dig in. Two things to get out of the way here quickly: (1) Our own Michael Slezak had no idea that Mr. Jay would be taking his models to New York's meatpacking district when he scripted this week's episode of EW.com's America's Next Top Doll series. (In another channeling-Tyra coincidence, Slezak's plastics find themselves doused in ''real live animal blood'' — read: Asian chili sauce, sweet and sour sauce, diced tomatoes, and tomato paste — while recreating the Carrie prom

The CW's 'Top Model' combines aspiration and perspiration
Hollywood Reporter - United States - It might just be that the seminal moment for "America's Next Top Model" (born May 20, 2003) arrived when it tapped fashion photographer Nigel Barker to be a judge at the beginning of what it refers to as "Cycle 2." Barker is U.K.-born, you see, and if the unscripted TV world has taught us anything, it's that you need a Brit helping with judging in order to succeed on any sort of elite scale.

"That's simply how it is," Barker insists. "It's an established fact that your show needs a bit of salt, a little pepper and a dash of Englishman."

Tyra Banks: America's Next Top Mogul
Entertainment Weekly - USA - The statuesque beauty holding court in front of her studio audience on a recent January morning in New York City is ready for anything. And that's good, because Tyra Banks' fans do not hold back. Demands one woman, ''Is it true you moved your show to New York for a man?'' Banks, styled in a formfitting white dress, breezily rejects the claim that the relocation of her eponymous talk show — and her hit reality show, America's Next Top Model — has anything to do with her love life. The young crowd is primed with energy; hands shoot up and
