The clip above comes from Biker Chicks: Leather & Lace, an obviously awesome one-hour special that aired last night on Nat Geo. I included some context, even though it kind of taints with tragedy the awesomeness that follows in the photo shoot. Yeah, it's unfortunate that this 22-year-old woman is stripping to support her child and the motorcycle of her "companion." Yeah, it's somewhat maddening that she's surrendered her will for this guy (as much as their relationship seems ultimately symbiotic). Yeah, it's unpleasant that her strip joint of employment is called Cheaters. However, she strikes me as the type who'd sock you in the stomach (or at least get someone else to do so) if you felt bad for her. So don't! Instead, chuckle at the instructions she's given during this photo shoot that's taking place to beef up her portfolio so that she can become a "glamor model." My favorite is "'Atta babe!" Also love love love the arrangement of hair around the handlebars. If Miserable George doesn't guest on ANTM, it'll be a crime. In fact, if they don't end up making a reality show about America's Next Top Biker Chick Model in One of Those Magazines You Laugh at On Newsstands But Wouldn't Actually Buy, it will be a pop culture tragedy. I want it now!
Oh, and Jessica's story may be unfortunate, but I find it really reassuring that she isn't actually into any of these guys. Hers is ultimately a redemption story!
