It's the 14th season of America's Next Top Model, and we've basically seen it all. We all know what to expect — sob-story beauties, stank attitudes, dramatic transformations and extra loads of self-absorbed antics from creator/host/judge Tyra Banks. Still, it's hard to stop watching.
The episode begins with a group of 33 hopefuls standing in a room waiting around for this year's cheesy season-premiere theme, which is social networking. The contestants learn that they are trying to make Tyra's "MyFierce" page. (Try not to gag.) As a result, the contestants have to take a profile picture, and have to learn how to take a social "netwalk."
Tyra explains that she only has a certain amount of room in network so she can only accept a certain number of new friends.
During the interview process, we meet a slew of hopefuls from across the country. Here are a few of the more memorable ones:
Brittany lives in College Park, Maryland. She says that she made the semi-finals after being hand-picked in an online competition through Tyra's web site. But she doesn't make it as a finalist.
Hallie is from Memphis and is a complete snob. Her godmother is Cybill Shepherd. She admits to getting an allowance and not needing to model for the money.
