Nothing conflicted with recording this latest iteration so I decided to give it another try. I basically lost interest in it last season, I think because none of the contestants seemed that interesting. Still too early to tell with this season, but they seem to have made a few changes that even the playing field a bit. 1) No contestant is "short" (the shortest women are 5'8") 2) No "plus size" contestant People who followed previous seasons know those contestants considered short or "plus size" were eventually cut and I think it became clear it wasn't exactly fair or realistic in the long run for a "top model" classification. Early favorites include Lluvy and Kahlen. One girl's eyes are so wide set she looks somewhat alien. We'll see how things go.
