Models Aren’t Necessarily Dumb…

…but it helps.

…and if we’re talking about America’s Next Top Models (and sure, I’m going to allow that they call themselves models even though they’re typically too short, too hefty, too awkward with the camera, too resistant to public nudity), we’re talking about something else altogether.

Last night, as I dined on carnitas at the 3rd&Fairfax farmer’s market, i spotted Jade from Cycle 6 of America’s Next Top Model, a woman I half remembered for her incredible ability to invent words…

…and the fact that I could never figure out whether or not she was part-Asian.

Which got me thinking about how in 8 cycles of America’s Next Top Model, we have only met the tiniest handful (and by “tiny handful,” I think I mean five) of any kind of Asian descent.

The most notable of which being:

GINA, who really was an idiot, not due to clever editing or pursuit of success. She was (and until witnessing her I’m not sure I was really sure these existed) just a very dumb Asian and about as notable as a straw laying listlessly on a bale of hay.

If any of you happened to watch the very first episode of ANTM this season, you might have noticed a flash of a brand new Asian face that a) didn’t make it to the top 13 and b) didn’t once get interviewed. I can only imagine how moronic she must have been.

Don’t hate, integrate.

I was trying to give Andrew bunny ears, but I ended up throwing an Asian peace sign instead. Yo, I think that's racist.
