"ANTM" sashays back into our hearts
class=img_thumbleft>Cycle 5 ofAmerica's Next Top Model
(premiering September 21) is already shaping up to be delectable fan-candy. For starters, Tyra "BE QUIET!" Banks has jettisoned her unfortunate "Rusty Jones" weave in favor of more flattering brunette tresses. Secondly,ANTM
has added a "plus-sized" model,Diane
, to its jewel-box assortment of hotties--though calling Diane "plus-sized" is like diagnosing a 5'3 woman with dwarfism. Best of all, we get another Minneapolitan contestant this year, (Coryn
) who hopefully will go further thanlightheaded Rebecca
, who sent us running for the smelling salts last season--er, "cycle."
Favorite to win: Jayla, the token "punk" who makes Lex from Survivor look like Richard Hell by comparison.
