Next Top Model jumps the shark

The latest season of America's Next Top Model started on British TV last night, and while it's still good viewing, one can't help but think the whole format is getting a little tired. The charge sheet is as follows: - It's the same routine, same queeny helpers, same selection process - The girls, while getting distinctly uglier, do the whole ANTM thing we've seen before - lots of hugging, lots of tears - and, picking up on Amanda "I'm legally blind, I have a son named Elijah" last season - now insist on bringing a whole load of baggage into the judging panel with them. Babies, husbands, sick or dead parents, ingrowing toenails - any old sob story they think might get them selected. LEAVE IT OUTSIDE, LADY!
