Next Top Model 2 debuts tonight.
Twelve women vie for a modeling representation contract starting tonight as UPN debuts America’s Next Top Model 2 at 9 p.m. ET. UPN tells us that a lot happens tonight: One model “screws up in the first ten minutes. One model is abandoned by the others, and controversy surrounds another competitor, who is forced off the set of a provocative nude photo shoot.” This year, they’re competing for representation, the cover of both a Sephora catalog, and a spread in Jane magazine. The Seattle P-I “interviews” two of the models using quotes from press materials, and there we learn, among other things, that Jenascia became a model because a boy once “told me I was too ugly.” This season “features sharp characters and scintillating intrigue,” according to The Orlando Sentinel’s Hal Boedeker. The New York Post’s Adam Buckman isn’t as thrilled; he says the show “liberally makes use of every urban reality cliché known.”
+ also: judge Janice Dickinson: The show is “not artificial at all, because the industry is so artificial. The only thing that’s artificial on the show are my breasts.”
