"America's Next Top Model" debuted its 13th season Wednesday on the CW. This time, there's a twist: All contestants must be 5 foot 7 or shorter.
Don't worry, reality TV fans: The dramatic poses and craziness are still intact. Here are my picks for the most memorable moments from Wednesday's premiere:
*The Crazy But Fierce Award
Hands down, the distinction goes to 18-year-old Nicole from Louisville, Colo. Somberly, she tells us her nickname is "Bloody Eyeball." One contestant accurately concludes, "She makes me nervous when she speaks."
Never miss a local story.
The crazy talk is all fun and good -- until Nicole unexpectedly wows her competitors during a photo shoot.
*The "Tyra Loves My Back Story" Award
It's a tie. In one corner: Rae, 21, a mom determined to win. In the other: Sundai, 18, who spent much of her life in foster care. She stands at just 5 foot 3.
*The "I Hate My Makeover" Award
This honor is reserved for Bianca, 21. Since she already had a shaved head, Bianca didn't have too many makeover options. So what did Tyra do? Bleach the African-American girl's eyebrows. Bianca's reaction: "I look like an alien." That comment, paired with her dissatisfaction over her photo shoot makeup, landed her in Wednesday's bottom two. She was safe, but she might not be around long.
*The "I Want This More Than You" Award
How far will a model go for a dream? Ask 22-year-old cheer instructor Courtney, who competed in the auditions while on crutches. She's still in the competition.
The Second Chance Gone Wrong Award
Everyone was shocked when Amber ("I'm for Jesus Christ") left the competition for personal reasons. Her replacement, 19-year-old Lisa, could have given us an inspiring underdog story. Instead, her bland personality made her the first contestant sent home.
