ANTM Drops Actual Model, Retains Diversity, Picks Elderly Trolls

Amanda_10.jpg

FBLA is so disgusted that we must vent. ANTM has jumped not just the shark,but the whole seafood buffet. Call us dim, but we just figured out that the producers and judges (aka Tyra) have no interest in actually picking a young woman who could have any sort of legitimate career in modeling. The three superannuated types who are left after Amanda (and her twin sister Michelle) were sent home, could maybe get work as
(1) local anchor at KXGN or
(2) posing for action figures or
(3) booth babes for AARP.

One of the prizes is a cover (and a fashion spread) in Seventeen. Meaning the winner should be able to recall being 17.
