I agree: good when it’s good

These girls are obviously very passionate and excited about Top Model and very well educated on the industry. That perspective gives a lot of really great insight into the bigger picture of the industry, and the love and nostalgia they have for the show is terrific.

I do agree that when they start getting off topic it gets more difficult to connect with them. I’ve found myself fast forwarding the first few minutes of each episode so I can just a get to the Top Model discussion. I also didn’t appreciate their cycle one comments on the girls deciding to eat pizza, which they described as a poor decision that Elyse was successfully avoiding. For all they speak about Tyra bullying the girls, they can get a little judgmental themselves...

I do NOT recommend tuning into ANTBF for a post episode experience, these girls are heavy on the spoilers, especially Amanda. You’ll want to tune in after you’ve completed a cycle to avoid spoilers like “so and so gets kicked off in three episodes”. I really wish they would enforce a spoiler alert policy or just cut back.

Overall, I think this is a pretty successful attempt at a Top Model podcast. The girls are passionate, intelligent, vibrant, and genuinely love Top Model.

Not great

Can’t even get thorough ten minutes of these girls screeching and giggling and acting like tweens. I started by listening to the cycle 15 recap since I just watched that cycle. “Omg Esther is the first Jewish contestant!” They breathily exclaim. “She’s very Jewish!” Girls, Esther is the first Orthodox Jew. The only other girl to mention her Judaism was Jeal. I’m sure there were other contestants, but they don’t ask everyone’s religious backgrounds, so...
OMG, listen to adults podcast.

Fffffjjggyggg ,

My faves 💖

Love these ladies and this podcast. Their commentary is spot on and I look forward to listening every week. A lot of these reviewers are just bullies who need someone to pick on. Keep up the great work ladies.
