I just realized this is my second post involving some byproduct of American Idol. I guess that means Carrie Underwood is safe for today, and I wouldn't think Sanjaya would be showing up in Random Photos. Anyway, on America's Next Top Model tonight, Clay Aiken is a guest. Tyra Banks invited him on for this season's acting challenge. Apparently once a year the hopeful models have to show they are as good, if not better than Cindy Crawford in Fair Game.
So, for this year, Tyra decided that Clay Aiken would be the best choice to perform a scene with the models and to judge those scenes later. Well, sure, because when I think of future Academy Award winners, the name that pops into my head is Clay Aiken. He must be at the top of every list when it comes to getting scripts. You know he was offered the roll of Wolverine and turned it down? I know, he decided Spamalot would be much better for his career, and so Hugh Jackman got it.
"Every year [the models] do an acting challenge, and since I had been in Spamalot and was doing the Broadway thing, Tyra called and wanted me to be a part of it. I did a scene with some of the girls and then later on tried to help judge that scene."
Does Tyra really have that few friends that the person she called for an acting challenge and to judge it was Clay Aiken? Doesn't she have anyone come on her talk show who can act or is on there plugging a movie who would give Tyra a day to film the appearance? She is on national television every day. She has tons of money. She could pay an actor to come on and make an appearance. Maybe it is because the acting done by the models is probably of Kathy Ireland in Necessary Roughness caliber, and so what Tyra does is bring in someone who is equally as bad. If the models were to perform a scene with say, anyone with actual acting talent, then it would make all the models look foolish. OK, well welcome to ANTM Clay.
