playing safe: the winner of top model is...

Despite its overall greatness as being a pretty poor reality TV show, the finale for "America's Next Top Model" was fairly uneventful, save the uber psycho hose beast, Jade, getting the cut early in the show.

The two finalists, Joanie and Danielle, were pretty good, yet none were as skilled (or passionate) as past winners. Perhaps it came down to these two girls because they were safe choices, especially after last season's upset (the upset being that the winner, Nicole, has thus far been a pretty useless top model...but then again, aren't they all?). I was actually predicting that Danielle would get the cut and it would be between Joanie and Jade, based on the fact that the two had spent the last three episodes feuding.

In the end, however, it was the two girls who went the distance by getting surgery on their teeth -- on camera no less. I suppose by the time they announced the winner (Danielle, by the way), it didn't really matter since either girl was a better pick than Cycle Five's Nicole or Jade. The dull finale did nothing for me unlike Cycle Five's or Cycle Two's. If there was ever a time to start swearing off "Top Model," it's probably now.

But that CSI
