Tyra Advises 'America's Next Top Model' Contestant to Shave Gap in Teeth

Dental surgery is no big thing on America's Next Top Model. At Tyra's behest, former contestant Joanie Dodds got her scraggletooth aligned; Danielle Evans (who went on to win Cycle 6) had the gap in her teeth closed. On Wednesday evening's episode, contestant Chelsey was asked to widen the gap between her teeth—and she did.

Tyra explained, "We love your teeth, if you agree, we'd love to exaggerate that and take you a little bit more to Lauren Hutton." Chelsey happily agreed, and ended up having a quarter millimeter shaved off each of her front teeth—for the sake of reality television!

Extreme? Perhaps. But with the stakes high this season—the winner gets a spread in Italian Vogue—we guess it's easy to see why Chelsey agreed to surgery. Previous seasons have shown that it's inadvisable to refuse the producers' requests, from uncomfortable weaves to actual surgery. Funny, isn't it: Tyra preaches about positive body image and the importance of accepting one's natural look on this same show.
