In anticipation of this fall's America's Next Top Model: All-Stars
, the CW has released three promos so far, each highlighting a different all-star and her, err, unique legacy in Top Model
Today, we have the delight of walking down memory runway with Lisa D'Amato, Isis King and Bianca Golden -- each beautiful, and more than a little crazy, in her own way. Let's watch!
Lisa was 23 on cycle 5, back when she ruffled all those feathers with her wiggy, wigged-out behavior -- putting her at the ripe old age of 29 for the All-Star cycle. Does that mean she's matured? Or that, as one of the oldest contestants in the competition, she'll go down without a fight? Wow, if you're asking those questions, you don't know Lisa at all.Isis King:
Isis was Tyra's first transgender model ever to appear on Top Model
. She placed tenth in cycle 11 in 2008, but Tyra was so touched by Isis's story that she brought her on The Tyra Banks Show
twice, and paid for Isis's gender reassignment surgery in 2009. Now it's 2011, and Isis is back, better than ever -- her full transformation into a woman is complete, and she's ready for another shot at the title.
Here's what I remember about Bianca. She was aggressive, loud, outspoken, and, despite all that, her photos were so fierce that she placed fourth in cycle 9. Oh, and there was that whole post-show thing about how Nikki Blonsky kicked her mother in the vagina
on an airplane. Drama follows Bianca everywhere -- cycle 17 included, judging from this first look at her during cycle 17.
I assume this means we'll see a different promo for each of Tyra's 14 returning fan favorites before the September 14 cycle 17 premiere. I know what you're going to ask, and the answer is yes: I'll post 'em as I get 'em.
