More Realistic Tyra Mail

Ciara Knight

It has been 12 days since the final episode of America’s Next Top Model aired.

I’m confident that the show will receive the recognition it deserves in years to come, after we give ourselves time to grieve and reflect on what has happened.

One of my personal favourite parts of the show is called ‘Tyra Mail’, where Tyra sends the potential next top models a cryptic letter, teasing their next task. The girls always jump to ridiculous conclusions, which I have loosely scripted below.

Model 1: “Tyra Mail is here!”


*Girls fight over who gets to read it*

Model 2: “I’m gonna read it”

*Girls give Model 2 filthy looks*

Model 2: “It says: ‘A clock only has one face, but how many faces have you? Loooooove Tyra'”


Model 3: “Oh my God, we’re going to examine each others faeces!”

Model 4: “We’re getting plastic surgery!”


Evidently, the clues were always vague and stupid, but the girls’ detective work was appalling, yet a joy to watch.

So, I’ve come up with more realistic Tyra Mail, designed to cryptically tease the next tasks, which are more suited to finding the next top model than the typical ANTM tasks. See if you can crack the answers before reading them directly underneath, you absolute cheat.
