Vote for which Top Model looks best dead with her head mounted on a wall (really)

Viewer voting is now open for the fall season of America’s Next Top Model, and the first photo shoot features the models’ heads mounted to wood plaques as if they were hunted, killed, and dismembered. I mean, they are “‘wild animal’ fierce” according to the show’s Facebook page.

Voting ends at midnight ET tonight, because viewers’ impressions of the photo shoot taxidermy will be used during judging of the show (which is in production now but airs this fall), so check out the heads now.

Besides the photo, there are brief biographical stats and 30-second videos with each girl introducing herself–talking with their heads stuck through the wall plaque set, so it looks like a fucked up version of the Country Bear Jamboree.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
