Every Wednesday it’s the same thing. I wanna watch West Wing, but lose out to Eliza and her America’s Next Top Model. Fortunately last night’s episode contained a truly historic moment in reality TV. Janice Dickinson almost killed someone.

Poor Rebecca collapsed just as the judges began dishing out the constructive bitchicism. Her eyes rolled to the back of her head and she fell backwards like a board.

Top Model = Fear Factor for hotties with low self esteem. Next week: Miss Tyra forcefeeds Kahlen until she passes out.

  1. That Janice person is annoying. She’s a prime example of someone who shouldn’t be famous. Thankfully, she isn’t that famous.

    No Andrew. Janice is AWESOME! There is never enough of her.

    Rebecca totally took The Nestea Plunge© onto that hardwood floor. I completely forgot that something shocking was going to happen, and there was no teaser then commercial as you would expect– ANTM actually surprised me. YAY!

    And shut the shelves on Michelle already. God, im really sick of her.

  3. best. animated gif. ever.

  4. that one chick behind “intense eyes” looks as if she’s gonna hurl

    Can’t. Stop. Watching. It.

    I’m really addicted to this show. I’m hoping that Rebecca will be gone soon. Her personality and her looks are way too head cheerleader mid western corn fed girl to me. I so wanted to smack her when she won the challenge last night.

    I was sorry to see Sarah go. I thought she had a far more high fashion model look then Britney, I loved it when Tyra told Britney her foundation was too much!

    Agreed, that is a fantastic animated gif.

    Didn’t see the show – did they determine what made her faint? And if not, can we make something up? :)

  9. re: Noah and the Nestea Plunge. LOL.

    I am definitely in the can’t-stop-watching-this-gif camp. What was the final bitchism that put her over the edge? I’m guessing the cause of the faint was low blood sugar, ie no food.

  10. great gif!

    I laughed SO hard, then Dave gave me the stare-down, said it wasn’t funny and that I was mean.
    I continued to laugh through the entire commercial break.

  12. i wonder how legit this ‘pre-existing medical condition’ is or if the fainting was really the byproduct of subsisting on cotton balls soaked in orange juice and cigarettes for 3 days

  13. No offence, but I had more fun watching coked up Whoever Baldwin every episode of Celebrity Fit Club. *That* was a crash-and-burn that made made me feel good all over.

    we don´t have this season yet here in Brazil, but i can wait to watch! That gif was realy funy! must be a eating disorder or something that made her colapse.

  15. That’s what happens when you DON’T EAT, you under-fed nitwit!! Hope she hit the back of her head so hard, it knocked a little sense into it…

    I thought that when people fainted they fell foward, not backwards.

  17. richk  |   Posted on Mar 17th, 2005 0

    So are we to assume that no one came to her aid — they just popped the eyeballs out of their skulls in sympathy!

    the final image of her laying there all by her lonesome, model stick-legs safely in the background, is simply hilarious…..

  18. Grimmone  |   Posted on Mar 17th, 2005 0

    Were are the “plus size” girls this season!? Last season it was Tocha and the season before that it was Anna.

    Rebecca looks like Shandi from two seasons ago’s popular head cheerleader sister.

  19. So hooked on this show as well. How freaky were those eyeballs?

    Next week the catfights begin!

    How about when Tyra goes, “How many of you were scared?” in her little mommy voice and all the girls raise their hands. What’s wrong with Tyra? What kind of stupid question was that??? Did anyone else catch that?

  20. Grimmone  |   Posted on Mar 17th, 2005 0

    Jenn I totally was thinking the samething too! Tyra totally sounded like Mommy when she asked how many of them were scared!

    I’ve never heard of anyone fainting backwards. I was diagnosed with syncope a few years back and as someone who spends too much time passed out on the foor, I’d know :) Generally you either fall forwards or collapse. Not saying it’s not impossible, but still.

  23. I’m addicted. My prediction: Britney will go on to own her own Porn Production company. Tiffany will end up kicking the shit out of Naomi Cambell on a runway in Paris. And no one will ever look as “fierce” as Brandi while uttering the phrase “Would you like fries with that?”

  24. Grace  |   Posted on Mar 17th, 2005 0

    I think it’s fake. I once heard that when people faint, they almost always faint in the other direction, so that they land on their face.

  25. Max  |   Posted on Mar 17th, 2005 0

    Maybe the highheels had something to do with falling backwards?
    I have only seen fainters fall foreward.
    Reminds me of a study about passing out, something about booze back and beer forward.

  26. sam  |   Posted on Mar 17th, 2005 0

    It wasn’t the hunger or the lights. it was of her own damn claculation. NO ONE faints backwards. Fainting backwards has always been a made for TV thing. Ankles and knees will buckle when you faint, so you will almost certainly go forward or at best, slightly backwards on top of your crumpled legs.

  27. omg ur r all so mean she has a diasease that comes back like every 5 years that makes her faint!!! i think she was gr8 last night so w.e. and u in brazil u r missin so much good t.v.

  28. have u ever seen on all reality tv shows everyone falls backward and someone catchedsthem from behind i have never senn anyone fall forward i think that iulvey rock

  29. Waverly  |   Posted on Mar 17th, 2005 0

    She probably locked her knees, which can make you pass out and sometimes you fall backwards.

    Did anyone notice how when she was released from the hospital and got into the car, she was still wearing her hospital gown? What, they didn’t give her her clothes back? The producers must have told her to keep the gown on for effect (or she really wanted to emphasize that she’d had a Medical Emergency).

    damn… I always miss the good parts

    guess it would help if I were to give into pop culture and get a television

  32. there was one contestant on the premiere episode of this season who was supposed to be “plus size” but she looked like a size 6 tops.

    also, i am madly in love w/ naima the mohawked one. what a fox.

    and hello, i think everyone already knew michelle (the wrestler who went platinum blonde) was gay. either that or i’m just one astute latent lesbian.

  33. Bens  |   Posted on Mar 17th, 2005 0

    Momments like last night make me thank god for TiVo. They should keep a medic on tap. My fav was Nole and his pussy dog screaming…”call the police!” ..maybe one of the girls poisoned her!

  34. i love naima, too!!!! i hope she wins :)

  35. God, I had to call people to TIVO this for me because I forgot to set it up.

    Awesome. The best part was when the camera angle was changed after commercial break and you saw her eyes roll up before passing out – like in your gif.

    And I love Angie Dickinson. She’s Simon Cowell with alot more attitude and less tact when it comes to judging these girls. Come on, it’s a contest on external looks and modelling – are people expecting someone to be nice?

    (sayeth the fat girl Mandelion here who still loves the show)

  36. S.F.  |   Posted on Mar 17th, 2005 0

    I love Angie Dickinson too! She was on the show? Now I’m really sorry to have missed it.

  37. It wasn’t Janice who made her faint, it was the guest judge lady, who was just getting into why Rebecca’s walk down the isle in the potato sack wasn’t ‘couture gown’ good enough. What a great way to completely change the subject!!

    A girl in college with me fainted backwards in a furniture-rich room onto a very hard floor with a rather terrifying thud when we were in first year. There was that distinctive slow-motion moment of silence. Though someone should have gone to her aid, checked she hadn’t swallowed tongue, etc, all I remember is the whole class pissing themselves laughing. We were studying fashion at the time. Maybe the backwards faint exists only in fashion-related situations…

  39. KillianK  |   Posted on Mar 17th, 2005 0

    By the way, let’s be honest — NONE of these girls is ever going to walk a Chanel runway, EVER. It’s all mildly diverting fun, but the reality is they’re all the wrong shape, most are overweight (for real models), and are any of them even close to 14?… The only girl who could have made it was the intelligent, non-Bible-bashing one in season 1 with the short hair (Elise?). She could have been a model. Everyone else looks like a Mattel prototype. So maybe they could feature in a St. John Knits show at Nordstrom or something….

    Did anyone else find Tyra’s reaction absolutely redonkulous? Tyra’s all feigning like she cares.. “Who’s scared…” (raises hand and prompts rest of the group to do so). After about two seconds, she’s like, OKAY let’s go on destroying your self image!

    KillianK, Elyse DID ‘make it’ she’s a quasi-celebrity in Hong Hong. She documents her adventures via livejounral – http://www.livejournal.com/users/elysesewell/

    Love this show!! Janice is great.
    Heard from a reliable source that last years winner
    Eva is Missy Elliots new girl toy…but they won’t go public ( don’t want anyone to know). They both think it will hurt their careers if people find out they are lesbians.

  43. You know, I always thought that Missy was a lesbian… and that Eva too. She and Anne had a major sapphic vibe going on. (I still think that Yaya should have won that one, though).

    Of course I missed the show last night, but when I heard about the girl fainting, I thought it was the one that Tyra said looked like clone of Janice. It was hilarious the way that Janice was so insulted to be compared to one of the girls… you just knew that she’d be ripping into this girl the whole time. Too bad it wasn’t her…

  44. I have never and will never watch this show. That being said…say what you want to, but Janice Dickinson is a COOL lady, promise she is. Not surprised she comes across like a hooey on the show — that’s the job, right? I’m just glad she’s still kicking around.

    Trust me a, even though american tv shows are realy great, we have stuff going on our tv that you can´t imagine.its very harcore.

  46. For the record, you can fall backwards when you faint. After losing a bit too much blood a bunch of years back, I passed out and fell flat on my back.

    Elyse from the first season is a top model! She is HUGE in Europe, google her.

  48. PD  |   Posted on Mar 18th, 2005 0

    The best part was that everyone there was so insecure they didnt know how to deal with the whole thing. . they all just saw this body on the floor and stared at it until a guy from the crew went to check on her . . it was hysterical. . . all the models took a step back and all the judges just looked at each other i thought the rat dog would be the only one to check on her.
