Woodland’s Top Model candidate makes doe eyes at Tyra

Rachel, a native of Woodland, CA, made the cut on the 13th season (I just can’t type “cycle,” I can’t do it!) of “America’s Next Top Model” last night, continuing Norcal’s dominance of the show. (We can also claim blonde-turned brunette Brittany, who hails from from Livermore.) Doe-eyed 19-year old Rachel is one of 13 … Continue reading “Woodland’s Top Model candidate makes doe eyes at Tyra”

Sacramentan is America’s Third Top Model

St. Francis H.S. alum Analeigh Tipton finished third in the 11th cycle of America’s Next Top Model tonight, which I believe means that she wins the ceremonial title of Greater Midwest’s Next Top Model and takes the national throne if and when the other two are unable to serve out their terms. I’m honestly surprised … Continue reading “Sacramentan is America’s Third Top Model”

Top Model fever, round two

A buddy of mine scored awesome seats to last night’s outstanding A’s game, so I missed the opening night of The CW and with it the premiere of “America’s Next Top Model.” My wife informs me that, building on the success of Sara from Davis in the last cycle, Norcal is going for 2 consecutive … Continue reading “Top Model fever, round two”

Sacramento gets Real (again)

I am not sure how I missed this one (oh, that’s right, I had no idea the show was still on television), but the 38th installment of MTV’s “The Real World” will feature a local gal by the name of Shauvon. Fans of the show might put together that this marks the second consecutive season … Continue reading “Sacramento gets Real (again)”

Sacramento gets eliminated

Well, the ride to fashion stardom is over for A.J., the America’s Next Top Model finalist from right here in Sactown, sent home last night by the judges. On these talent type shows, it’s always sort of questionable for me who goes in what order–for example, you know that almost all of the remaining girls … Continue reading “Sacramento gets eliminated”

Martin Tuttle to manage West Sac

Continuing to step away from its image as The Trucker Brothel Capital of Yolo County, West Sac stepped up its game today by hiring Martin Tuttle to be the new City Manager. Tuttle will rival Rancho Cordova’s Ted Gaebler as our region’s coolest city official. Sorry, John Shirey. Tuttle has already made his impression of … Continue reading “Martin Tuttle to manage West Sac”
