'America's Next Top Model' Premiere Recap: School Is In

Tonight, Tyra Banks will present her controversial and confusing 19th cycle of America's Next Top Model to the few of us who may still care, or at least want to see what all the fuss is over. ANTM has, undoubtedly, become a cultural phenomenon during its nine years on-air, acquiring fans both stateside and abroad with adaptations in numerous countries that I will forgo attempting to spell correctly let alone pronounce.

So why change it all up now? Why kick beloved judges Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and Miss J to the curb, making room for the opinionated Kelly Cutrone? Tyra has been around the block for years, so let's give her the benefit of the doubt and say that she must know what she's doing, right?

OK but you are in college so lets see how well you do home school girl will not last that long. if you cry , cry and cry then how do you expect to win ANTM. who will be the first one to go why not have the number of girls for each cycle so 19 to represent the 19 cycle.
