I love your Tarsem reference (and it's so true!) but that gif of ALT has made me really sad. He is not smiling with his eyes.

Maja

(And I wish you would enable comments on your day job samplings - as with Palahniuk, I'm superexcited you got to interview Olivia Colman!)

Somehow this season is starting to feel like a greatest hits album after which there are no more hits ever. Can it possibly go on any further after this season? It's starting to make me feel like I have eaten one too many desserts.

I love you, rich! Thank you so much for these recaps! I was actually nervous for this episode because i thought allison would go. Even though i know how much of a fraud this whole show is, at least the prizes are real and if anyone deserves a vogue cover its her. I just adore her to death! Shes so precious you just want her to succeed no matter what (even if its as trivial as a reality show)! Shes like the only reason that makes this show worth watching now.

Something about the girl

I just love how they called Laura a slut, but they had no shot that actually showed her acting as a slut (except for a 3-second shot of her changing poses!). I felt bad for her, because she seemed to still believe in the show (unlike Lisa and Allison, who just know better). Also, Tyra sucking on Tyson's finger. Really TyTy?! Slut... Just kidding, Tyra is too self-centered to be a slut.

Tyra is keeping some broke down, glue-factory bound models for her finale. To what end? Who wants to open Italian Vogue and see Lisa? In the words of Cathy, "AAACK!"

Unless they start having plus-size cycles or freak-show cycles (but hey, that would be the mirror house within the mirror house, within... y'know), I don't see how the show can possibly raise from the dead. Still, I love your recaps and they're the reason why (on top of Allison) I'll watch the cycle to the end. May I quote you for one of my works?

Luv. Eric

As we all know, who we want to win is irrelevant, but Rich, I thank you for giving us all a forum to air our grievances.

And for the amazing blog and gifs. So much fun. Going to withdraw big time once this show is over from your work.

That Angelea's blog entry won...does not bode well for the future of writing.

Carolyn

Honestly - this was one of your best recaps ever, Rich. I'm still giggling a little.

Gillian

I'm so glad you're recapping this season. I couldn't wait to see what you had to say about the whole Modelland travesty. Thank you for your enjoyable point of view.

So, so, funny. I LOLed at the gif of the baby doll, and of Tyra-Tyson thumb BJ, and ALT's subtle little eye motion, and so much else, and I don't even watch the show (anymore).

Melissa

This cycle has gotten progressively weirder. When I first heard there was an all star cycle I was beyond excited and now I kind of just want them to crown Angelea the winner (because she's obvs winning) so I can attempt to erase ever seeing thumb sucking Tyra and her...whatever the hell that "motion editorial" was from my memory.

Jodie Whalo

I honestly wonder if Tyra is at all self-aware. Does she realize how much of an evil, manipulative and utterly self-centered monster she appears as to the general public? Is that what she's really like? Or is she utterly oblivious and honestly believes that she's doing good things for the benefit of society?

It's one extreme or the other. That kind of crazy doesn't float around somewhere in the middle. I swear, she reminds me of the Joker so much it's actually terrifying.

Jessica

I think the true beauty of this season is the transparency of the game, which is even more clearly than normal a trap. You can be eliminated at any point for any reason and that reason can't be argued with because, hey, it was justifiable.

For some reason I'm now thinking a statistical analysis of "why" girls are dropped off the show (too much consistency! not enough! no personality! too much! too pretty! too...uniquely un-pretty! too repressed! too vagina-flashing!) and see what the winners are. I'd probably guess it would end up being "failure to smize convincingly"

MJ

There was really horrid example of insensitive, sob story-pulling from Tyra in cycle 13 to Rae as well. They were talking about her daughter and then all of a sudden, Tyra goes 'Okay, we're going to change up the energy a bit. Tell us about when you were sexually assaulted!' She actually essentially said, 'Okay, we're having a nice time talking about your child, too nice a time. Let's talk about you being raped instead.'

DTS

This episode was particularly unsettling. Its disturbing imagery ("woman-child suck thumb!") and unexpected pathos surrounding Laura's departure combined to create a decidedly unpleasant experience that remained with me for days.
Fortunately, your recap did much to alleviate my discomfort. Thank you, Rich!

Andrea

I'm on page 420 (you know it) of Modelland. It doesn't get any better after the first 70 pages. At this point, I'm just daring myself to get through this literary turd.

First of all, I don't believe Tyra actually wrote it. It's so terrible but I still don't think she has the skills to generate such a tome. Clearly a ghostwriter was involved. Also there's no way this steaming pile of shit would have been published if not for Tyra's name being attached to it.

Lol... these are funny pics.

I loved Lisa's reaction to Modelland. Rich, I can't wait for your recap of the finale (airing tonight!)

Kit

So I have not read Modelland (couldn't get through the first few paragraphs of the online sample), but in my mind Tookie is an amazing amalgam of Sookie from True Blood (duh! she's special) and Toki from Metalocalypse (because people should stops copies her).
And that is amazing.

Thanks for doing recaps, Rich.

Rachael

I have never hated Tyra as much as I did during this episode. Modelland? TOOKIE? No.

So I have been with my partner for a year now. I am 23 (with a super huge libido) and he is 30. When we first got together we were going at it all the time and naturally over time the sex has slowed.

stupid and lolest Tvshow ever!! need to have absolutely no brain to watch it!!

raymes

There are more than 400 pages in modelland? Yikes.

1. Angelea's disqualification? why???? Apparently she breached contract and blabbed she won?

2. Why didn't Allison win? Doesn't need to cos she's already the winner period of all the rest.
