Apropos of Nothing (Tyra Banks Edition)

Has anyone else out there watched "America's Next Top Model?" Someone must be watching as I think it is in its 9th or 10th season. What kind of ego does Tyra Banks have? If you ever watch the show, turn it to another channel until the very end, when Tyra is announcing who gets to stay and who has to go. Just about every reality show has the same ending. But what I find interesting is where the host stands or sits when he/she announces who is in and who is going home (or at least to a hotel pending the end of the taping of the show). Look at these photos:

Notice that in each case, the host and judges are at the same level or below the contestants. But look at Tyra in her reality show, when she is delivering the good or bad news. Ignore (if you can) the rant. She has placed herself above the contestants. They all have to look up at her. And then she has the gall to lecture this one girl that she doesn't know what Tyra's been through. Read about her difficult life. Oh, the humanity!

What a egomaniacal dope.
