Top Model 2 shows model’s ball.
A photo on page 72 of the current Us Weekly illustrates a story about America’s Next Top Model 2, and it shows more of one of the models than he probably thought it would. As TV Week reports, the photo is of “a man and a woman discreetly naked in an Adam and Eve-type setting. … But the man, on bended knee, seems to be offering up a little more of himself than the magazine or the network would want.” That’s apparently part or all of his testicle. Page Six reports–with no sources, as usual–that “Us editors are furious with UPN, which provided the photo.” UPN’s having fun with the photo; a spokesperson says, “It’s been really crazy and apparently someone took their eye off the ball.”
