Tyra Banks + 'Twilight' = Classy (Almost)

Tune in alert, folks: On the Nov. 28 episode of Tyra Banks’ talk show, she gives away the Volvo that Robert Pattinson’s Edward drives in Twilight to one of the fans turned away at his canceled, out-of-control autograph session in San Francisco earlier this month. The bad news: The girl had to win it in a pie-eating contest.

AP reports that Pattinson and his costar Taylor Lautner (Jacob) cheered on the three contestants during Thursday’s taping of Tyra’s Twilight hour: "I still can’t believe they are making you guys do this," Pattinson reportedly said. "Oh, geez!" (Try to forget that he just used the phrase "Oh, geez!" and focus on the positive: he’s apparently never seen The Tyra Banks Show before.) Two of the girls tied in the pie-eating contest, so Tyra determined the winner by having them guess Pattinson’s and Lautner’s combined weight (320 pounds). In my mind, that’s when Pattinson made a mental note to call his Harry Potter buddy Daniel Radcliffe and ask him if he ever had to do this kinda crap. (In Tyra’s defense, the victor, 18-year-old Tiffany Kuhne, told AP, "This is the best thing that has ever happened to me in my entire life," so she’s not exactly scarred.)

What piece of the Twilight pie would you want to take home (bodies precluded), and what would you be willing to do for that particular piece of movie memorabilia?

    The Aston? Ferrari? Porsche!

  • leeloo

    i’m not asking for much…maybe one of those honkin’ Cullen Crest rings…or the Cullen house. ;)

  • Danielle

    I really could care less what it is that I took home, as long as Robert Pattinson delivered it. Barring that, I’d settle for the Ferrari.

  • meg

    Ummm..the scariest thing is the picture of Robert biting Tyra that is on People right now and her facial expression in reaction.

  • cabingurl

    I totally agree with you Meg.
    She like totally has the big “O” face going on in that pic.

  • tess

    I just watched the Tyra clip and in fact Tyra is Rob’s fave show and he’s too afraid to say his favorite episode.

  • no one

    I dont think they gave away the ACTUAL car cause they have to use it in the next films. So they have to keep one or two.

    How About Edward/Robert himself or Something that edward had of worn
    and i would pretty much do anything and everything

  • M.M.

    um… anything delivered by Robert Pattinson. Maybe the CD collection… or the jeep… that was an awesome jeep.

  • ami

    i want the leather cuff edward wore, and i would do ANYTHING for it.

  • Nehrida

    I think I would just want to have a regular conversation with Robert. Find out what he is really like. No cameras no microphones. Just a one-on-one talk.

  • Kelly in SD

    I’m right there with you Nehrida! Kinda sad that I’m old enough to be his mother and have never in my kife had a star obsession. I suppose if I’m gonna fall, Rob’s the ideal to obsess over. :)

  • Kelly in SD

    oops… my life not my “kife”

  • Malia

    I’d take a cotton swab to the inside of Robert’s mouth and scratch off some DNA. You never know when that may come in handy down the road, with how technology is working these days!

  • loxfin

    The house, To own the house edward owns or the family… I have always dreamed of my own home before I die…
