I haven’t watched Top Model in a while but this season has something going for it that the previous seasons didn’t. That’s right! One of the contestants is from Alaska! How often do we see Alaskan contestants on any reality show?! Oh, that’s right, there’s also a transgendered contestant. That’s a first too! Yeah, this should be an interesting season and with Isis, the born-man, now gorgeous woman, I might just have to check out the season premiere.
