    I hate this “fiercely real” bullshit. Is Tyra trying to be empowering? Because I’ve always found this silly title to be demeaning. If she cares so much about plus models, why doesn’t she host a season of ANTM for them like she did for short women?

    The contest is not letting me submit my application. It says that the contest ends on December 3rd, and the application is still showing up, but when I try to submit it, it says that the sweepstakes is not accepting entries. My sister and I want to enter this contest, but do not know how to do it if it is not going through.
