Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

After years of modeling, 21 seasons of America's Next Top Model (with spinoffs in virtually every continent), a talk show, and bestowing the gift of the smize to non-model peons, Tyra Banks often forgets that she is "publicly known." Thank goodness for autograph-hungry fans that pester her at restaurants. Someone has to remind Tyra of her roots.
