Canada's Next Top Model - 1x01 "Hit The Dance Floor Running"

Hey Americans! According to Canada's Next Top Model, our northern cousins are blandly polite!

Take for example:
Sylvie's burning desire to win.
Tenika's ferocious will to victory.
Tenika's brutally honest self-assessment of her photo.
And a bonus video of Canadian girls gone wild upon Tricia Helfer's first appearance:

Way to subvert stereotypes, eh! (And about those stereotypes...)

However, Tricia seems to have been seduced by American boorishness!

How nice that she said goodnight to her wenches without looking at them. Absolutely no superiority complex there.

But seriously: if the first episode is any indication, whoever puts this show together is inept. Challenges were poorly organized, less imaginative than a fashion show in a K-Mart, low production values, and the rewards were announced with barely any build-up. "Hey girls, you just competed in a challenge, and Heather! You were the best at whatever!" the judges would say, except more politely.

And when you fill time with glamour shots of Jay Manuel, you know something's wrong with your show.

In which case, you'd better bring in the Canadian Janice Dickinson.

The theme of this week's photoshoot was rock chicks. Of course, being Asian, Sisi was assigned Kawabata Makoto.

Hell, last week was just bad for Chinese girls on reality TV.

But really, they should just send everyone home and declare the European girl the winner.

That way I won't have to keep downloading what is sure to be a total waste of bandwidth.

This show has major problems.

1. Tricia Helfer is 10000000000000 times hotter than any of the wannabe models.

2. Tricia seems like a solid coach, but in the more formal segments (judging) she's more wooden than a totem pole.

3. The girls' personalities couldn't be more ordinary.
