Did anyone else know this was on? I didn't even realize until an hour ago that a new cycle was starting up tonight . Tyrant is pitting 7 American chicks (none w/ any prior NTM experience) up against 7 British gals (all of whom are previous contestants on Britain's Next Top Model). I don't have a TV in the office so I can't do PBP, but from what I've seen so far, it looks like this is going to be one of the bitchier, seasons in a long while. As far as the hamsters go, some of the British chicks have potential, but most of the American ones are absolutely trainwrecks - WOOF . Whoever does the makeovers is really going to have their work cut out for them. After the last disaster of the "All-Stars" Cycle, I decided I was pretty much done, but given the choice between this or American Idol, I'll take the cheesy snarkfest that won't make my ears bleed (for now, at least ).
