Many reality tv lovers shed a few tears when Janice Dickinson left America’s Next Top Model. Those tears quickly dried up with the airing of The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency on Oxygen. This show is all Janice all the time without any judges getting in the way. Don’t get me wrong—I love me some Nigel Barker and the rest of the crew at ANTM. However, there’s just something about Janice Dickinson that I can’t get enough of.
Janice Dickinson knows modeling. Her having her own agency makes perfect sense. So she, along with her partner Peter, have found the best models in town. She’s got gals. She’s got guys. Ooh, man, does she have guys. Big, buff, muscly men. Wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. But how could I not? Have you seen the shirtless men? Sigh. Okay, anyway, she’s got guys and gals and a whole lot of experience and connections.
Her son is also an integral part of the agency. He helps out as a right hand man to the second in command. Basically, it’s nepotism at its best. Or worst. I’m not going to say much about him because I love Janice and since I love her, I will not say bad things about her offspring. You dig?
The female models are a diverse bunch of all shades and sizes. Most of them are skinny but not emaciated. Some are funky. Some are chic. One is from Nebraska or the like and she’s blonde and everyone loves her.
The male models are less diverse but who cares. They have their shirts off a lot. A lot. And then they put their shirts on again. And then they take them off. Sometimes Janice yells at them for partying before a shoot or for being late because they partied before a shoot. Then she tells them to take their shirts off and they do. Then they put their shirts on, only to take them off again a little while later.
This show is not exactly a competition like ANTM is. Instead, this show portrays the competitive life of a model. Castings occur often and Janice supports all her models. She critiques and teaches. After all, they’re what’s making her money for the agency (in addition to the paycheck she’s surely getting from Oprah for the docudrama).
[b]And THIS is why I love reality tv[/b]: Janice Dickinson.
Ha! You thought I was going to say “shirtless men,” didn’t you? No, no. I’m not that much of an objectifier.
So I love reality tv because of Janice Dickinson. She’s sassy. She’s smart. She’s entertaining. AND she gets buff guys to take their shirts off. Thank you, Janice.
