So, I messed up, as a few have pointed out. Readers Amy Z., and Will A., both emailed me screen shots of instances of crying from the last ANTM episode that I missed -- silly of me to ever think an episode of ANTM could have aired without a single tear spilled. My DVD drive is actually down right now (a new one's coming tomorrow), so I can't take these myself right now. I'll just post the ones they sent me to update the Crying Count (sans commentary).
I guess it's safe to say that Edna's Edibles is burning.
And seriously, did my sight just go out for a minute? I understand missing the first two, but Dom is CLEARLY crying. Here I thought that the show was changing, when really it's just that my eyes going senile.
There's a special bonus after the jump: for the first time in the history. Of. My. Recapping. Of. America's. Next. Top. Model., a contestant has contacted me!
This was posted in the general comments of my YouTube profile, which, given the source, is weird enough to make total sense:
(I redacted a portion of it because it refers to some other...uh, work I do that I don't feel like broadcasting to my family should they make one of their frequent outings to my blog. Of course, since this comment is public, you could always just check out my YouTube profile if you don't know what it's referring to. But hey: I put in some effort to ensure the innocent stay that way. I did all I could!)
(And no, I'm not talking about porn. Whenever I make my foray into that world, I'll definitely give the heads-up in this space.)
ANYWAY: it's Amis! And she says nice things! I don't point this out to brag or whatever, but just to show how strong her character is to not only go out of her way to say something nice to someone who's so routinely...adversary, but also to adopt a bitchy nickname I doled out. Guess who's my favorite ANTM contestant of all time, now! Ann Markley, you've been replaced!
But really, I could only be happy with such a note considering the good-natured source. I wouldn't assume that most of the girls on the show could laugh at themselves so easily and I would encourage any of them (including my beloved Amishole) to avoid anything I have to say. My bullshit is based only on the whittled-down sketch of a character that we see on TV, my sense of punishment for those who are so unwise as to enter the exponentially absurd world of modeling competitions and whatever complete and utter nonsense I can squeeze out of my rapidly deteriorating brain (see above...and abover). Really, STOP READING NOW. It freaks me out a lot.
