Vapid It Ain't

SleepyBeth says that

ANTM kind of embodies the definition of vapid

I beg to argue. According to Merriam-Webster, vapid means "lacking liveliness, tang, briskness, or force : flat, dull". ANTM is chock full of liveliness, tang, briskness, and force! There's cat fights, lots of melodrama, and a peek into the world of modeling in all its back-stabbing glory. So while it may be obtuse ("lacking sharpness or quickness of sensibility or intellect") its not vapid. SleepyBeth, I do not think that word means what you think it means.
