Nope. I knew about modeling before. ANTM just made more interested in it.

Oh really?

From the couture models thread:

I was exposed LIKE THOUSANDS OF OTHERS to the world of fashion by ANTM.
Caught in a lie?

I can call some no-name like Justin Timberlake the best male artist of all time, but that doesn't mean anything, other than the fact that he may be somewhat popular at the time I said it. Titles like that are subjective.

What is not subjective are facts. Compare Justin's stats to someone like, say, Michael Jackson -- who far exceeds him in record sales, chart positions, awards, fans, etc -- and what my opinion is really doesn't hold much weight compared to that, does it?

So, like I said, compare Tyra, Adriana and Heidi's high-fashion campaigns, covers and editorials to Linda, Naomi, Cindy, etc and see how they fare.

As a fan of Top Model, haven't you learned never to take what Janice says at face value?

She also quoted a statement she made to Tyra in an interview, saying, "You weren't in Vogue that much." The supers "were" Vogue, as Linda put it.

We all know Tyra is her own hypeman(good one Sepia) so why in the heck won't she call herself one, even if most dont! You like her suffer from delusions of grandeur. BTW I haven't seen that statement about Tyra from Jan, either way Tyra hired Janice what was she suppose to say?! Besides it doesn't matter the writing is on the wall, and it says Cindy,Naomi,Linda,Christy,Claudia,Kate and a few other very lucky & special woman and Tyra-Heidi,Daniela, and the rest of the VS/SI girls are not among them. In the days of Cindy,Naomi,etc you had to be a Topmodel 1st(along with respect and great work) to become a SUPERMODEL, years later and to this day the title has gone way down and blown out of proportion where as you are some misinformed people called the VS/SI girls Supers.

Speaking of titles, many feel Tyra has no right(I heard that several times here) to have such a show since many don't think she is a great model/with illustrious work (teaching girls about modeling). Janice just got straight frustrated. I guess that's why no one cares about the winners. It's all for show(or Tyra oops). It's crazy to take it serious.

I'm embarrassed to say that I, too, watched Top Model because it piqued my interest in the industry. Thank goodness I grew away from that after the first season or two, after learning "the basics". Now the show is just a guilty pleasure. I only really started watching the industry a year ago!

Omi, did you ever see the episode of P Diddy's MTV show, where Naomi came as a guest and helped the contenders pose for a shoot. I thought she'd be a great model search host.

I hope someone does a show based on the supers.

You know what I watched the first few seasons, mainly b/c of Janice and that was the only thing me & my roommates at college could agree & laugh on. However, I know the difference between entertainment/hype and what's real. Unfortunately I find like a few of my roommates people don't know much about Tyra as a model or fashion things. They just say well 'She's hosting a show right?!' Big deal I say, Paula Abdul is judging singers. So I take the show with a grain of salt, but I find I have lost interest in the last few seasons.

BTW the Supers have gotten enough attention,money & recognition to seriously spend time doing something like these shows. Sure they have more to offer and know more unlike someone like Tyra. However, they have nothing to prove, are over the business/attention, and a few are still actively working like Naomi and don't have time or interest.

Yeah I know Naomi is busy, but I thought it was cool watching her give advice. I wish someone did a special series on them or something where they showed old footage and did interviews though. Some of them, maybe not Naomi and others, but some (Veronica, Janice, Beverly, Stephanie, et al) don't seem to be working as much and might agree to do it. Plus, photographers, designers, etc could talk.

Quick, someone call E! or Oxygen or something!


By the way, HA! @ the Paula Abdul comment!

But it's kinda like what's in it for them, they have the respect,money,got enough attention and many have families(Stephanie,Cindy,Claudia,Beverly,Christy, etc). They're not like Tyra who doesn't have the family,career or the respect. So she has to hype herself. I'd rather be praised for my work/remembered/mentioned(Cindy,Naomi,Christy,Linda) than have to do it myself,mainly hyping(Tyra). It's like she is saying 'Look at me, look at me' and 'I matter too, right'?!

Yeah you're right, but I still think they might consider it, even if for the fans' sake. Some were willing to do the "When Supermodels Ruled the World" special. I think they like the fact nostalgia over their era is growing.

Guys, please keep this thread on the question as posed in the title. And also, let's keep it a bit civil instead of going back and forth the whole time on the same subject (you know what I mean) Thank you.
