My friend Monica super-exclusive source sent me pics snapped at the Pussycat Dolls after-party in Sydney earlier this week, where Make Me a Supermodel contestants Rhys and Tom (who, by the way, has an appalling fake tan) apparently defied Jackie Frank’s advice not to drink and dance like dorks in public:

This one of Rhys is especially good:

Thanks Monica super-exclusive source!

Olympic gold medallist, underwear model and possible Michael Phelps-pasher Stephanie Rice has signed on to Make Me a Supermodel to “advise contestants on how to handle a sudden rise to fame and also how to appeal to the general public”.

I like Stephanie and all, but this is a pretty desperate play by the Seven Network.

Meanwhile, News.com.au titled this report with an exceptionally boring “Stephanie Rice joins Make Me a Supermodel“. No “Models Love Rice”, etc etc?

Make Me a Supermodel is only a week old and already it has two mortal enemies: the sex-obsessed Australian Family Association, who are pissed off because episode two depicted teenage models in rauchy positions; and the Football Federation of Australia, who are pissed off because the show interrupted Olympic coverage of their stupid sport or whatever. Haterz!

Make Me a Supermodel‘s girls, from hottest to nottest:

Shanina, who I think is hot even if her name does kind of sound like a euphemism for “vagina”. (“I kicked her square in the shanina.” Am I right?)

Aah, Make Me a Supermodel – yet another televised celebration of lucky genetic factors that people are rewarded for despite having no control over. Here are the boys, ranked from hottest to nottest (your mileage may vary):

Billy, whose hotness is tempered slightly by the fact that he knows he’s hot.

The other six, after the jump. Continue reading

Australia really really impressed with its appearance [Make Me a Supermodel]

Oh, Generation Y – don’t you just love our wanton lust for celebrity, our shameless convinction that we deserve instant fame? I’m yet to decide whether Make Me a Supermodel is either a glorious, scathing satire of this attitude or a shallow, wonderful celebration of it: I’ve never seen so many mediocre wannabes declaring, apparently without irony, how really really ridiculously good-looking they are.

So I’m pretty keen to find out exactly how hot the contestants are on Make Me a Supermodel, but in the meantime I’ll content myself with these publicity pics of the judging/hosting team:

Personally I would never let myself be photographed anywhere near Jennifer Hawkins, but that’s but me.

Two more after the jump. Continue reading
