Abstract or Description

First aired in the U.S. on 13 April 2005, Tyra Banks? outburst of emotion earned episode seven of the fourth ?cycle? (Season) of America?s Next Top Model (ANTM) the title: ?The Girl Who Pushes Tyra Over the Edge?. By the fourth cycle, audiences of ANTM are accustomed to Banks? particular variety of emotional guidance, repeatedly packaged as ?tough love? and delivered to anxious and troubled contestants in an ostensibly pastoral relation of care. From tenderness to outrage, Banks? expression of feeling takes place within a landscape of visibility that consciously and overtly capitalises on difference.
