the J’s

Tyra Banks Get’s to Choppin Heads, Nigel Barker, and the J’s are Fired from Top Model

Just like most things in this genre “America’s Next Top Model” is getting a make over.  Tyra Banks pulled a Donald Trump and fired Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander.  These three guys have been on the show for quite a while with Nigel Barker adding not only his expertise in the fashion world but also his photography skill and he’s also eye candy for the ladies.


On Twitter, Banks wrote,

“Fierce & love 2 my @NigelBarker, @MrJayManuel & Miss J. #ANTM turned us in2 a family. Excited for what the future holds for us. XOXO TyTy.”

In annoying twitter fashion Nigel thanked Tyra and Miss J also tweeted in.  The exchange can be seen below.Just once I wish someone would Tweet – “F*CK YOU TYRA AND YOUR DUMB A$$ SHOW”  but of course that never happens.

The executive producer for the show also sent his thanks,

“Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander have been an integral part of the ‘America’s Next Top Model’ brand and they helped turn this show into the household name it is today.   They have been amazing assets to the show and will always be a part of the ‘Top Model’ family. We will continue to actively work with each of them on future projects.”

However, with the shows 18th season being it’s worse in ratings, there is no place to go with these changes but up.  Rumor has it the show will be taking a twist and focusing more on social media and the internet.  Do you think this is a good decision?
