The Girl With The Best One-Liners - Heather
Honestly, Heather probably would have gotten this title even if that one quote was the only funny thing she said in the entire show. That quote is absolutely legendary for me, because it takes a special kind of bravery (or in her case Asperger’s I guess) in order to make Tyra sound totally plain in your opening statement. What’s even funnier is that you could tell Tyra was so caught off guard by one of the girls not acknowledging her beauty.
However, the hilarity doesn’t end there. Heather goes on to describe her condition for the judges and is asked how it’s affecting her social encounters with the other girls. To this, Heather only has one brief, brilliant statement to respond with –
Then there was the time, at makeovers, when she discovered that she would not be getting a drastic change, but rather a few touch-ups. This prompted her to talk about how relieved she was, how much she loves her hair, and do this –
Or how about when they went overseas and she made a very strange comparison –
And who can forget the iconic Tyra Mail moment of the cycle where she just stands there staring at it for a while –
In short, I love Heather because she had everything working against her on this show due to her disability, but she always found a way to make light of it and exude a positive energy. Please never change, Heather.
