“Model for a Cause”

Let’s discuss.

According to a recent Tyra interview (which you can find on cwtv.com), the theme for the house is “Model for a Cause,” and will feature Tyra’s own T-Zone camp (sans Scandaleisha, I hope), as well as former ANTModels and their personal causes. Tyra wants these girls to see modeling as a platform on which to push their own agendas.

The first questions that comes to my mind are:

  • Will Adrienne be included?
  • Will Scandaleisha be included?
  • What are their “causes”? CariDee’s with the National Psoriasis Foundation, but I don’t recall any of the other winners having a “cause.”

    In cycle 10, we already know some of the girls coming in here with pet causes —

    • environmentalism (Claire)
    • domestic abuse (Dominique)
    • female circumcision (Fatima)
    • feminism/body image (Whitney)

    — but I could definitely see this coming up again over and over in this cycle. Will the remaining girls have to come up with a pet cause of their own?

    ANTM seems to be getting more and more demanding — not only does America’s Next Top Model have to look good, take good photos, take criticism well, be a good spokesmodel, have a bubbly personality, and be a role model for little girls, but now they also have to save the world? They might as well rename it “America’s Next Tyra Banks.”
