America’s Next Topless Model: Photo shoot at Santa Anita more tame than scandalous

Pete Siberell, Santa Anita Park’s director of community service, gave an interview to the Star-News about the recent airing of an “America’s Next Top Model” episode that featured the model-contestants posing “topless” with a racing horse and jockey.

“I was hoping no one in America was watching — I’ve had a rough day today,” Siberell said of the calls that flooded in after the latest episode of supermodel/talkshow host Tyra Banks’ campy reality show aired. “It’s something I regret. It was awful.”

Poor Pete. While you can feel the heat of his blushing over the head-desk moment just by reading his comments, we really don’t think the photo shoot is worth the hubbub.

The models’ relevant anatomy is all decently covered in the photos, a la a long-locked Lady Godiva. After all, this was a professional fashion shoot suitable for 8 o’clock, prime time television — not Skinemax.

It’s much less of a travesty than, say, this dreadful ANTM shoot.

Judge for yourself. You can see more of the photos, all courtesy of The CW, at the ANTM Web site.

(As a side note: We think the gal in the photo below is a dead ringer for some dark fiend we’ve seen on Goths in Hot Weather. Eh? Eh?)
