For that matter, what's wrong with the rest of the judges? Most fans have wondered whether or not the show would still be enjoyable in its fourth season, but the real question seems to be whether the judges will be.

And Heidi Klum, who's already calling this season's contestants a bunch of crybabies, delivers her "auf"s with mild disinterest and says "One of you will be out" like she's about to remove her earrings, smear Vaseline on her face, and club the designers like seals (yeah, sorry about that).
