Tyra Banks outdid herself when it comes to insane proclamations on last nights "Americas Top Model" when she prepared the girls for a shoot as homeless urchins by saying she knows what it's like to be homeless because she pretended to be homeless one day as a bit for her talk show. You really need to have seen that episode to appreciate the insanity of that statement. There are a bunch of clips after the jump, but look for these highlights:
1) It's at least 75 degrees outside, as everyone else is wearing shorts and sleeveless shirts, yet Tyra has on flannel shirts and a hoodie and some very expensive Wolverine boots and those fingerless gloves like you see bums wearing on the Simpson’s. They don’t show her warming her hands over a barrel fire and chasing a chicken, but only because that might have looked racist. Homeless Ranking: 1 out of 10. She looks homeless like the mascot for Notre Dame looks Irish. It would be like asking a sexy nurse in a strip club how long you have to live. 2) She says she "gets lucky" and finally finds a public bathroom where she can clean up, explaining that this is how real homeless people bathe. Please note the very nice gold trimmed mirror and the unlocked inventory of Coke and Snapple all around her. Either that’s a magic bathroom that makes Snapple and the manger hasn’t yet discovered this enchanted inventory-supplying toilet, or it's not really a public bathroom homeless people would be allowed to use like a fountain. Then Tyra cries at the misery of the human condition she’s witnessing first hand. It's true … there was no Diet Peach Snapple.Homeless Ranking: -3 out of 10. She loses points for not chewing half a cigar and not having all of her possessions in a red bandana on a stick. 3) She talks to two kids on the street by introducing herself as Tyra, which is unnecessary as they clearly recognize her. Because it's Tyra Banks. And not Tyra Banks in no makeup, but Tyra Banks in professionally applied homeless makeup. One of the two kids points out a crack pipe and says it must be on the ground because whoever was using it got scared by Tyras camera crew. Homeless Ranking – this number hasn’t been invented yet out of 10.
