Top Model 6 concludes tonight

Tyra Banks crowns yet another woman America’s Next Top Model tonight at 8 p.m. ET, when the sixth cycle concludes.

Danielle, Jade, and Joanie remain, and one will be crowned the winner in Bangkok, Thailand, where the show moved to a few weeks ago. The show’s web site promises that they’ll “face a commercial and photo shoot for CoverGirl and struggle to deliver their lines and best poses.” Later, “the final two face off in a runway challenge before the judges on a giant, twisting runway set of ancient temples over water.”

If Jade doesn’t win, her rapidly deflating ego may cause a black hole to form, sucking Tyra and all of the judges into it, and leaving us without a panel for cycle seven.
