WTF: Tyra Shaves A Gap Into Model's Teeth


On last night’s episode of America’s Next Top Model, the girls received their makeovers, with Tyra ordering dental work for one contestant—to widen the gap in her two front teeth—to make her appear more like Lauren Hutton.

This, of course, is keeping in the tradition of ANTM, in which advice, instruction, and definitions of beauty are arbitrary, contrary, and totally confusing. (In Cycle 6, Tyra ordered one contestant—Danielle, who went on to win the competition—to have the natural gap in her teeth less prominent.)

And speaking of “definitions,” they seem to be a theme of this cycle, with the girls made to model vocabulary for their photo shoots. One word, in particular, proved to be difficult for one contestant, landing her in the bottom two. Maybe it’s because it’s not actually a word at all.
