Though we don’t foresee it for Cycle 15, our ideal season is one that ends with Janice Dickinson, Paulina Porizkova, Twiggy, and Tyra Banks in a finale walk-off on hot coals. Maybe during Cycle 29 when ratings begin to wane. For this coming cycle, we envision much of same glory we’ve come to expect. One girl will worry about her boyfriend’s reaction to her new Halle Berry haircut. Another will discuss her anger management issues. Tyra will convince them all that sticking their heads in a vat of milk without losing “the pretty” is just what it takes be a model.

And we’ve already seen some controversy! A sneak peek video for Cycle 15 was released featuring a girl who appears to have the tiniest waist known to mankind, a feature the judges seemed to enjoy – perhaps too much for a show that has long emphasized the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Tyra released a statement shortly thereafter saying she hadn’t seen the clip before it was released and was proud of us all for speaking out against incredibly tiny waists. Yeah, this is going to be good.
