The show is beyond a joke at this point so I really don't see what the point is. I think this looks really bad for Tyra and I didn't think she could look worse.

Nigel is an arse. A good-looking arse but an arse all the same.

I'm a huge top model fan but I gave up watching around the middle of cycle 16 and haven't watched an episode since. I think the show forgot itself.

It isn't even modeling anymore, its changed to branding yourself ala kim kardashian/paris hilton.

Tyra Banks is the fakest tv personality, you can see she tries so hard to present a good-hearted image but she can't hide the bitch she really is.

If only the girls that contested wrote a book and told what was happening behind the cameras

Miss J scares me. I just don't get it. I'm pretty open minded, but I just can't with 'him'.

Dumb, but kinda irrelevant. The show has been downhill for the past few years now. The last good season was when Danielle won. She needs nto get a good sponsor behind it make it more legit, right now it seems like the model version of Ru Paul's Drag Race.

“Good luck to whoever replaces me. I would imagine it’s a tricky thing to replace someone who’s going on their 19th season.”

I understand they are trying to completely revamp the show in an effort to continue on but I just hope when deciding to make these changes she treated her long-time co-workers/friends with the respect they deserved.

Also, is it really firing when you don't renew a contract? That's more sensationalizing than the truth unless they were under the understanding renewing of their contracts was just a formality. :o :o :o

I like Nigel. He has a good eye. The problem is Tyra! She just doesnt have a good eye for good models! The show is more about branding then modeling and finding good talent.

I don't think Nigel has a good eye, he was overwhelmingly pro-Saleisha in cycle 9, Twiggy was the only one who was thinking WTF is Saleisha doing in the final 2.

she needs to find a model who can really BE A HF MODEL.and also good management for them a proshow.

That was never the point of the show. When she was promoting the first season she said the goal was to show that being a model required more than simply being pretty and standing around. I don't know why people keep thinking it is about making models. The format as a competition is simply to keep people watching, to see the outcome. It is a t.v. show, and the goal is to get people to watch so the network/production company can make more money. Therefore, ratings are key. It has been one of the highest rated shows on CW since the beginning. Obviously,ratings have gone down, but it is still making money for the CW. Anyway, Tyra said she was only going to do special editions from last season on. I imagine she just wants to keep the costs down and mix things up for the final season (or maybe there is one more).

Anyway, Nigel was contributing little, and J. Alexander was hardly on this season or the last. As for Jay, he definitely will be missed, but I'm sure he's bored with the show as well.

I can't get worked up about this.

(Saleisha shouldn't have won--should have been Lisa Jackson--but she gets a bum rap. She wasn't nearly as awful as people make her out to be. By the way, Lisa Jackson and some others still are working as models.)

No, it isn't. You are right about that. I'm sure they are all still business chums.

Let's not kid ourselves saying that the show went off track after the 18th cycle. It was evident that it would be a crappy show with controversial decisions and winners from season 1, when Tyra sent home Elyse who was the only one who could become a model and had done exceptionally well in european go-sees.


It was evident from the very start that Tyra and only her would decide the winner according to her likings and not based on objective criteria

Tyra is so crazy. I don't know why they're still going on with this show.

Janice Dickinson always said she felt her opinion was irrelevant. But she suggested Covergirl was picking the winner :shrug:
