that one time tyra lost her shit
Okay, I am a dumbass. I have not seen all fifty gazillion seasons (just 49) of America’s Next Top Overproduced “I Just Like To Fuck With People During Makeovers” Girl Who Won’t Get Serious Modeling Jobs After This, so I don’t know exactly which season this little bit of schadenfreude came from.
Sooo… Since I cannot claim that I only watch edutainment TV (y’know, rotting my brain* and all that), which season/ep is this? I want to know who Tiffany is and why we were all apparently rooting for her.
I don’t remember what season it was, but she had been on the show before and gotten kicked off early on. she was doing really well, but then on one of the episodes she just doesn’t try (apparently) and get’s eliminated with another girl. cycle 4 episode 7 The Girl Who Pushes Tyra Over The Edge
What directly led to Tyra yelling was the way she reacted when she was eliminated. She didn’t cry or, idk grovel, whatever Tyra wanted. She smiled and hugged the other girls and joked with them a little, I think, and was basically “welp, what can you do?” (I think this is what Tyra’s referencing in gif 5.) I thought she took it well and Tyra has praised later contestants for meeting elimination with a positive attitude like that.
But in this case, she thought Tiffany was being ungrateful and/or not taking things seriously enough (gif 3, “we were rooting for you, how dare you”). She started chastising her for it and Tiffany defended herself by saying something like she’s been through enough negative shit and isn’t about to start crying over this (gif 6). But I think Tyra felt that she didn’t try to make enough improvement (gif 8). Tiffany is the girl in the center of gif 7, btw.

I’ve lost the ability to not reblog these things right now
Would it be bad to pre-order this? I’d check it out from the library but I think there’s going to be a lot of wine spit stains on my copy.
"Only seven extraordinary young women become Intoxibellas each year. …Thrown into a world where she doesn’t seem to belong, Tookie glimpses a future that could be hers—if she survives the beastly Catwalk Corridor and terrifying Thigh-High Boot Camp."
I am so there.
For REAL. It’s about an unexpected model with ”…untamable hair, large forehead, and gawky body..” who is named TOOKIE DE LA CREME. She ends up at a top of a mountain with magic model powers.
Is this a joke?
I’ll buy it.
BE QUIET, TIFFANY, BE QUIET! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? STOP IT! I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE YELLED AT A GIRL LIKE THIS. WHEN MY MOTHER YELLS LIKE THIS IT’S BECAUSE SHE LOVES ME. I WAS ROOTING FOR YOU, WE WERE ALL ROOTING FOR YOU. HOW DARE YOU? LEARN SOMETHING FROM THIS. WHEN YOU GO TO BED AT NIGHT, YOU LAY THERE AND YOU TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOURSELF, ‘CAUSE NOBODY’S GONNA TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOU. YOU ROLLIN’ YOUR EYES AND YOU ACTING LIKE THIS BECAUSE YOU’VE HEARD IT ALL BEFORE. YOU’VE HEARD IT ALL BEFORE, YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE THE HELL I COME FROM, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’VE BEEN THROUGH. BUT I’M NOT A VICTIM, I GROW FROM IT, AND I LEARN. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOURSELF.
a huge dose of existentialism from Tyra Banks.
I almost have this whole thing memorized.
The word “sexorexia” is being thrown around. Ugh for so many reasons.
