So there was nothing on TV last night worth watching (that includes the walking pile of crap that is American Idol), so I decided to sit down and watch five episodes from season two of Australia's Next Top Model. The Aussie version of Tyra Banks' hit reality modelling show is so much better than the original, and I will give you two main reasons:
Swearing and Nudity.
That's right. Down under they do it right. Not only do we get to see a house full of super hot 18 and 19-year-old models get naked for their first photoshoot, but the language is top notch. Fuck, shit, bitch, tits, they're all there, no bleeps whatsoever. Plus, there's even a few moments with some of the girls picking up horse shit and throwing it at other girls. That's awesome.
America's Next Top Model is way too conservative, and frankly, I'm really fed up of Tyra Banks telling everyone to look "fierce" and then crying about it. The Australian host, Erika Haynatz is a tough broad, and she doesn't sugar coat anything. If she thinks you suck, she'll tell you to your face.
But above all that, my favourite part of the show is Madeleine. While she has been one of the biggest contributors to the whole nudity factor on the show, she is also the sexiest girl I've seen in a long, long time, and I'm not talking your air-brushed Maxim-style pinup. Madeleine is super hot, and super horny, and she doesn't care who knows. She oozes confidence, and snogs (that's makes out with, or sleeps with, depending on the context) just about everyone she can get her hands on, guys and girls alike. I tell you, I am a smitten kitten.
Update: A big sarcastic thank you to everyone in Australia for dashing my dreams, and killing my spirits. I haven't seen last night's episode yet (I just finished ep 7), but I already know who's going home, and I'm not happy. GRRR.
Spoiler: It was Madeleine. I am sad now.

And, by the way, if you don't live down under, and you want to watch Australia's Next Top Model, you'll have to be a bad little boy like me, and get it off your preffered P2P network. I recommend BitTorrent for all your pirating needs.
Here is a video clip of their first photoshoot, involving some excellent nudity, and some excellent talk about nudity.
And here are a few pictures from Australia's Next Top Model, including a small headshot of Madeleine, which doesn't do her justice. Also, there are a ton of vidcaps of the nude photoshoot after the jump, but they might not be safe for work. Though they might be in Australia.
