It's only Week 2 of "America's Next Top Model" and things are weirder than ever. And not just because of the addition of male models this cycle for the first time in the show's history. But the presence of all that testosterone could help explain the crazier challenges the contestants seem to be facing ... like walking a runway down the side of a skyscraper in Los Angeles.
The challenge proved both difficult and terrifying for many of the contestants. Nina Burns and Chris Hernandez went down side-by-side, but it quickly turned into a disaster for Nina as she fell, screaming, hanging from the harness.
Fellow contestant Jourdan Miller described it thus, "Nina was dangling like a spider in the air.”
Nina recovered, but wobbled her way down the sideways runway. Walking with their bodies parallel to the ground proved difficult for almost all of the girls. Most blamed their trouble walking perpendicular to the ground on the sky-high heels they had to wear, not to mention the pouring rain.
Host Tyra Banks seemed to have no sympathy, though, then or now. She Tweeted during the show, "Fall on UR #Tooch? Don’t let a slip up keep U down — get right back up & try again, boo! #ANTM”
StarPulse's Greg Bauch found himself wondering if "ANTM" is running out of ideas. "This episode combines fear with posing," he wrote. "Somewhere out there, a guy with big glasses and a hat that looks like a hammock has invented the word ‘fearosing’. It’s week 2 of 'ANTM' and I’ve already run out of things to type.”
See what they come up with next for the contestants to tackle on "America's Next Top Model," Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
