We weren't watching A Model Life on TLC until a few weeks ago, when a certain casting director whispered it could be the one model show where girls actually book jobs. Shocked and cynical, we set our TiVO and eventually started watching. Apparently you did too, since every week we get a flood of emails: "Is Anjelika really that ignorant?" "Why is Michelle there?" "Lucia did a movie in Czech!" We get it; you're obsessed. As for us, yes we're definitely impressed: The girls are mostly 16, when real models start out. And we like Petra Nemcova as the hostess, especially during her "modeling lessons," striking "swimsuit" poses on a cement floor to demonstrate the right way to sell a bikini. We'll be sure to try that on Martha's Vineyard next week. But what about the girls? It's no secret that Brazilian Beatriz will get sent home - she's so pretty, and so inept in front of the camera. And while Angelika may have too much attitude for the Next new faces board, we know one girl with a definite spot: The British Abby, who's already been uploaded onto their women's board. So that suspense is ruined (sorry!), but instead you can wonder which runway she'll score in September... we hear she's a pretty good walker.
