Top Model 2 orgy episode airs tonight.
What once was the most highly anticipated episode of America’s Next Top Model 2‘s season will air tonight, castrated by UPN’s frightened corporate overlords. According to Eurweb, UPN had producers “edit out the steamy sections of the whirlpool swirl” from the part that “showed the remaining contestants cavorting in a hot tub with some Milan locals.” Maybe they’ll reenact it with less-offensive sock puppets. The video preview of tonight’s episode on the show’s web site shows that some hot tub kissing remains (get Michael Powell on the phone, stat!) and, hysterically, clips from a photo shoot where the remaining models apparently pair up and pose naked with each other. Real sex: controversial. Simulated sex: not controversial. Got it. Four models remain: April, Mercedes, Shandi, and Yoanna.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
