Tonight marks the premiere of America's Next Top Model: All Stars, and there's one thing we know is guaranteed: Tyra will say, "You're still in the running towards becoming America's next top model." The infamous affirmation is so clunky and awkward that it's truly bizarre that she's decided to make it her signature line during panel eliminations of America's Next Top Model. Over the last 16 cycles she's said it over a hundred times, and we have every instance of that here in clip form. Sometimes she's somber when she says the catch phrase, sometimes she's cheery. For a cycle or two she whispered the second syllable of "model" for some reason. But eventually she developed a cadence that hasn't been fucked with. You know how when you get high and you say the same words a bunch of times and it starts sounding so weird? Well, this will do that to you: An intoxicating supercut of Tyra Banks that will leave you feeling stoned.
I think every reality competition show should adopt the stellar elimination line from the brilliant non-reality reality show 'Joe Schmo' from years back:
"Ashes to ashes, dust to dust....you're dead to us."
This was accompanied by a plate with the eliminated person's face printed on it being melodramatically broken into an ash-ridden fireplace. Once, when they brought a previously eliminated person back, his glued-together plate was back up on the mantle. Genius.
