It's that time again...

The new crop of potential Next Top Models has been released! After the absolute perfection that was last season's winner (Nicole, aka The Best Model This Damn Show Has Ever Seen), it'll be hard for this season to produce someone of equal quality as a winner. Based on the photos... it'll be very hard.

Here's an example:

(View photos of this season's cast on LiveJournal.)

I am, shall we say, somewhat underwhelmed. But then again, the pre-show photos are always underwhelming. My favorites are probably Simone, Brenda, Krista, and Jessica. Naduah is interesting, but, um, her hair. Well. Yes.

On the plus side, this season has Andre Leon Talley, Editor-at-Large of Vogue magazine, as a judge. Maybe he'll give the show some legitimacy? No, wait, just kidding.

What do you think? Who's going to be AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL????!!!!
