Top Model 4 ends tonight.
Tyra Banks crowns her fourth top model tonight when America’s Next Top Model cycle four comes to an end at 8 p.m. ET. Kahlen, Keenyah, and Niama will compete for the title, and the runners-up will battle each other to see who has most unusually spelled first name. First, they’ll “perform in a CoverGirl Outlast make-up commercial, and then they immediately face a beauty shot photo shoot for a CoverGirl magazine advertisement.” And maybe later, Tyra Banks will scream at one of them, or at least speak in awkward, stilted phrases. So what have we learned over the past 11 episodes? The Boston Herald’s Edge has a run-down of 10 lessons from this season. Among them: “Say no to carbs,” a direct jab at that tubby fatty Keenyah, and “Making up words can be fun,” which refers to the judges’ critiquing with words such as “crotchy.”
