Cycle 9: America's Next PSA

From guest blogger John-John Williams IV:

Was I watching Top Model last night or a public service announcement?

First the show got its green on – I'm talking environment here. Judge Jay Manuel announced that the participants would be carted around in a gas-friendly vehicle for the entire cycle. That's nice ...

When Tyra Banks announced that the contestants were banned from smoking for the entire show, I thought she was joking. A smoke-free catwalk? What are the contestants going to do to keep their minds off of food?

Tyra better watch out before all her models will be fighting it out to be the new spokeswoman for Lane Bryant ...

Oh yeah, Mila is the first model out! Thank God! Her perkiness killed me. She was so ditzy/perky that she laughed throughout her fashion shoot, which was about the dangers of smoking. Really funny, Mila.

Despite the public service announcements, Tyra Banks has hit the ground running with this year's cycle.

I'm not talking about the actual show here. Her hit-or-miss weave is a hit this year. (Remember that fire-engine red disaster a few cycles back?) Wednesday night her weave was a golden brown color. Her bangs, which are oh-so-hot this season, ladies, shielded her legendary "five-head."

The two Js – Miss J. Alexander and Mr. Jay Manuel – are back to dish out their collective four cents about the latest batch of beauties. Nigel Barker -- that famous British photographer – is also back for some much needed man-candy. Oh yeah, Twiggy – lifeless as she can possibly be – has returned to jury/judging duties.
