    lowest common denominator

    By tvusr, Oct 28, 2011

    This isn't my usual sort site. I don't like commercial TV, but having caught 10 mins of a previous episode of BNTM on a barrel-bottom scrape of a channel hop, tuned in to watch the final BNTM to see whether the faceless denizens of TV land could choose the right face for Britain. Or at least for this show.

    Was horribly fascinated watching the graceless and bandy-legged Alisha stumping down the final catwalk without fear of stress fractures. Endured the obnoxious male judge screaming his 'praise'. Waited for public acknowledgement of the extreme beauty of almost the most extraordinary looking person I have ever seen, the incandescent Joy.

    Unfortunately the masses chose the most regular, featureless features on offer. But it wasTiffany'scool personality that clinched it. Nobody as vulnerable and eccentric as Joy could possibly be permitted to transcend. I noticed the screamer didn't like her much- his praises of joy were toned down to a common lookatme blare. Incredible how reliably the ESF/TJ LCD shun the amazing and choose the ordinary.

    Judges and Presenters are a bit naff and what a surprise to see glimpses of the real Elle McPherson. What a poor and hypocritical example she sets for these girls.

    By Durne11, Sep 20, 2011

    The show is quite entertaining and some of the challenges, whilst bordering on cruel, make good TV. The girls are a good mix of classic and quirky looks and the dynamics work well to have some spikey friction between them.

    The judges make some calucalated catty comments which are good for ratings and shock value but don't really offer anything constructive. I suppose it is difficult to be constructive when the premise of the show is all abouthow good looking or photogenic someone is.

    Elle McPherson should stick to photographic modelling. Every time that poor woman triesacting,does any kind oflive presenting oropens her mouth (even when it is scripted) she sounds trite,insincere, self absorbed andarrogant. No amount of coaching or training will fix that, she's too one dimensional but should take a leaf out ofSarah Murdoch's book when coaching and mentoring these young girls. Sarahis fabulous in Australia's next top model as she comes across as genuinely interested in the girls and provides some marvellous advice.

    British style of this show is to understand the model close up. The American version is a Tyra ego fest.

    By Taffyjer, Sep 04, 2010

    The American version seems so sickly and a Tyra ego fest-you really don't get a feel for the models (although Make Me a Supermodel is more real and feels more like a British-style show). Some Americans have a hard time with less choreographed shows that reveal a few more warts. British shows in this genre at least get you to understand the characters for what they are. Also, with the British version, as it is with the American version, it is all about the host's brand equity. Snowdon is well-known in the UK and her less giddy and dry approach is what Brits prefer. It just isn't Disney.moreless

    Maybe in the UK things must be a bit dry. In America, this version seems quite \"B\" movie in comparison to America\'s Next top Model. There are a couple of factors missing....

    1. There is no Tyra, who comes across as a mom, who wants all of her girls to succeed. She has the persona of routing for them, and is a character. The chick running this show has no personality!

    2. The judges have no personality. You could care less what they think.

    3. The video and set designs are very low budget looking. It looks like a show that is being tested on local open access tv, not a network. If you want to air more then a quick overview episode of the entire season on America TV, the show needs to be taken up a notch.

    Good luck!moreless

    I think BNTM is ok but could be alot better, the make overs are drab when ANTM can top UK in a makeover of black and asian girls.. it is a sorry day. BNTM step it up your lagging behind big time!

    I think BNTM is ok but could be alot better, the make overs are drab when ANTM can top UK in a makeover of black and asian girls.. it is a sorry day. BNTM step it up your lagging behind big time!

    BNTM lacks something not sure what it is but it needs to step it up and do your home work re black hair and makeup!! your supposed to be in the fashion industry!

    The drama is good but it seems BNTM is grasping a straws for some of their models, there supposed to be showing an intrest in fashion and the industry but some of them look like they just rolled out of bed!moreless

    Britain's Next Top Model happened to be on one day so I thought it'd be cool to watch it, since I've never seen it before. Man, that was a huge mistake. The show sucks, a lot! The host/judge Lisa, has no personality what's so ever. Actually, none of the judges have personality and they eliminate girls because they have "no personality". What the hell? Neither do you! In some episodes they don't even tell the girls why they are in the bottom two. Ok, how do you expect them to improve, if you don't tell them why they are in the bottom two? They're not going to. I hate this show, and I'm never going to watch it ever again.moreless
