    Hey don't ya'll think they should have a show like this. Instead of females, its males. Or they can have both male and female. Oh wait. guys don't wear Cover Girl. well instead of cover girl they can do something else. Just thought it would be a good idea. =)

    I personally think it's not done because the ratings wouldn't be as high.

    Us girls watch top model for the liking of the show ... the guys watch it to see the girls! lol  If the show was about male models, most (i said most, not all) of the male audience would be lost and the ratings would fall.

    Carmen Electra hosted a male model version. It was pretty good but obviously not well known

    Tyra was once asked why she had never done this on her talk show, and her response was that she had initially pitched it with both male and female models but then realized the market for male models wasn't as high. Then  she asked the person who had asked the question to name 5 top male models off the top of their head.

    Yeah, she stated she wouldnt do a male version because exactly how many male models could you name off the top of your head? Whereas theres female models, you could name a bunch.

    And male/female would be TOO much of a reality show...with sex, and stuff. And it would be kinda hard at photoshoots to teach two different styles or do two different photoshoots for the guys and then the girls.

    But if it was like a partner thing for each photoshoot, taking photos together, and whichever partner does bad gets sent home, idk.

    I wondered about that, too, but one for males wouldn't bring in as high ratings. They'd mostly be eye candy for female viewers, but not much else.

    After watching "America's Next Top Male Model" on the Tyra Show, I think a whole season could work.

    I mean if you look at it, the majority of the guys who actually watch top model are guys who either have an interest in modeling, or guys who know about fashion.

    I watch the show, I'm male, and it's because I want to be a model. I would still watch it if the contestants were male though. I would actually be more interested, because then the tips, tricks, information, etc. would apply to me more closely.

    Yeah. The same applies to me. Except for the wanting to be a model part.

    I still love the idea of a male ANTM, why not?  The women would like some eye candy!

    Tyra could say "Okay baby, lick your lips and pout, be fierce!"

    i don't think it should be done because there are other shows that have male models. America's Next Top Model should just stay with girls only.
