America’s Next Top Model’s all-star season premieres in only a few short weeks (woo!), and in addition to the main pre-season video teaser, it seems like some of Tyra’s Chosen Ones are getting their own special, individual, promo videos. First up is cycle 11’s Isis King, the show’s first transgender contestant, to whom, after her stint on the show, Tyra gifted gender reassignment surgeries.
In the short clip, she models on stilts in shiny silver leggings, dresses up as E.T., falls off a bed, and calls the other girls crazy in a confessional, as though anyone needed the reminder. As fans of the show will know, Tyra’s a big fan of strong, emotive eye contact — smizing and the like — and Isis has clearly been practicing. While it’s unclear exactly what’s happening with her eyes in the promo footage — sm-rowning? smeye-rolling? a sm-eizure? some other made-up thing? — it is most definitely fierce.
