America’s Next Top Model Rip (Miss Seventeen)

I knew it was bound to happen. We see it all the time with the regular manufacturers and cable networks, so I knew it was only a matter of time before it actually happened to America’s Next Top Model.

It’s been so successful (I believe it’s been a lot more successful than anyone expected) that others are trying to get in on the action. More specifically – Miss Seventeen.

They have gathered a group of girls and put them in a house together to determine who has what it takes to be Miss Seventeen and whoever wins gets to be on the cover of Seventeen magazine.

17 accomplished and ambitious young women compete in weekly character-testing challenges, all under the watchful eye of Seventeen magazine editor-in-chief Atoosa Rubenstein.

Doesn’t that description sound familiar to you? Not even an “inspired by America’s Next Top Model” (because we all know she was).

Now, I have nothing against Seventeen, but it always seems to nag at me a little bit when I see other companies trying to jump on a bandwagon and not give credit where it’s due when they see the originator experiences some success with it. But I guess that’s just how business works.

About this Miss Seventeen thing – the series premieres this fall on MTV (actually, it’s airing October 17th) and you can bet your bodice (or briefs) that I’ll be watching just to see what it’s all about. I’ll be sure to report back here with my thoughts on it.

The deadline to enter for this season has passed, however, you can sign up to be kept updated in the event they will be holding castings again.
