That just ain't right

It's 10:09 p.m. and Wendy the model just got whacked from the show. (I start watching a few minutes after 10 so I can capitalize on my DVR and skip the first two rounds of commercials.)

I understand that's how the show works, but that hardly seems fair. A model gets whacked from the chance at big exposure and some impressive benefits for no reason other than a designer's whim.

Correct me if I'm wrong, and I may indeed be wrong here, but the designers make the clothes for these girls to wear. When a designer collection gets panned, they don't kill the models - unless of course they fall, stumble or moon the writers. So why is it that these girls lose a job just because a designer made something awful looking?

You know that cliche about chicken salad? Say it to yourself now since I can't print it here.

Back to the show.
