It is a sad statement that your producers have run out of ideas and you have to stoop to half- naked photo shoots. There will be only one "Next Top Model", but the rest of these young women will have to live with what you have asked them to do, for the rest of their lives. These half-naked photos could cost them dearly in years to come. They could be disqualified from many opportunities because they believe you have their best interests at heart. They could lose among other things scholarships and internships all because they posed for bare photos. Maybe you should get a little more creative and think about these young women instead of your ratings and pocketbooks. I have watched my last "Next Top Model". I will no longer watch, or support Tyra Banks in any form, as well. Gwen Craig
I don't feel the new cycle's changes have helped the show progress in anyway. I have watched the show since cycle 1 but in recent cycles, it's easy to see they are struggling for ideas. I don't like the college theme, all these girls have basically left college to go on top model. Plus, I strongly dislike the public participation. I liked the idea of them taking the public's opinions into account, but only that they would look at the remarks and take them into consideration; not score them out of ten. Also what with it being a college theme cycle, people will have allegiances to vote for the girl from their own college, regardless of whether they think they are good or not. Also, marking out of ten for every challenge/photo shoot they do is ridiculous. It rules out the girls potential and their personality, which is important.
Hey Tyra! First and foremost I'm a huge fan of ANTM! I've been thinking about this for a long long time and never really knew how to bring it up, or if these fan reviews even make it to you? Hopefully this one does.
On ANTM I always hear you promoting healthy living lifestyles for your models, as well as promoting career, and success. I think you should start a show for the unsung hero's of communities! A weight loss/beauty competition for people that want to be accepted and gain the looks to match their beautiful personalities! We wouldnt need prizes as the ultimate prize for me would be to become healthy for the first time in my life and learn how to continue a healthy lifestyle for the rest of my days.
Well, me? Yes, I am a very overweight 24 year old woman. However I have the spunk of a 19 year old, and carry the responsibilities a usual 40 year old would. I'm a full time single mother of a 2 year old, as well as a full-time student. In my community I work with 50 families as an Early Childhood Coordinator at our local School district. I do home visits and book bag exchanges, as well as playgroups and read alouds for our community. I'm very involved with other students in the high school as I take on the role of 8th and 11th grade advisor. I'm also supporting the Senior class this year in getting volunteer hours with Early Childhood Development for one of their classes. I care about the children and my community very much, and see myself forever contributing and supporting the success for not only myself but the community and youth as a whole.
I'm outgoing and know how to be a real friend. I work hard and am determined. But I do need help. I do believe in myself that I am a beautiful person with all of these amazing traits, however, the world doesn't accept me that way. I've been made fun of my whole life for my weight and it truly is a toll that I deal with everyday no matter how positive I am. I really want to become healthy and allow my body to match my personality for the first time in my life.
i love this show but i want something new i love the idea of men and women being able to come n but ive always wanted to be on this show but i am too young i was wondering if they could have a junior edition i bet tht would be an amazing season!!!!!!!!!!
get rid of victoria, all she does is bawl and whine. She obviously can't handle the stress. The stories she tells at a photo shoot proves she is psychotic and the stories r bizarre. That is not normal.
im 14 and ive been watching antm since i was 11. i never miss an episode and i prefer americas version more than any other across the globe. my future plan is to leave the U.k and go to America to fulfil my dreams in being a model. most people think that modelling is about taking pictures getting money and as well as that getting the compliments. they dont understand that theres more to it, i spend my money trying to have photo-shoots and perhaps someday a photographer will notice me. i'm planning to finish my education (university) in america. im not the prettiest of girls however my soul and determination will get me to where i want to be. i love antm soo much and love tyras hairstyles, face and personality, its a great show to watch and isnt only for entertainment.
First off I'd like to say how rude it is to bash Tyra Banks after all she's giving these girls a chance of a lifetime. I watch every season and reruns on oxygn almost everyday! My favorite winner was danni (danielle) she was incredible as long as she didnn't have to speak. (lol jk)
but I do think you should do A plus sized cycle BUT you will deffinitly need to put a limit otherwise you'll have all sorts of women/girls showing up and sorry to say it a 400lb woman will never make it in the industry thats just the harsh facts. I am size 13 and look damn good I think women with bodies like mine would make for a interesting show maybe do size 10-16 or whatever woman like us are taking over the music& acting industry so why not let us model too? I've been paracticing my smize since I was 14 I'm 22 now. so no bad comments just think you should expande your ideas for the show...let somebody with true talent shine :) curvy girls rock!
I do not like the new format. I have to say, if I wanted to hear what people wanted to say about the models, I would go to the chats and blogs, I don't want to hear them on the program. This whole numbers thing has robbed the show of its personality. I loved to hear the judges going over the photos and girls themselves before giving one the boot. Taking that away and replacing it with a bunch of videos people send in is just dumb, and then turning it into a numbers game just robs the judges of any power. Starting to find it all a bit of a bore.
Hmm, so where is the "top model"? After 18 seasons, Tyra hasn't managed to select even one top model. Ladies, you are better off avoiding this dog of a show. Tyra is has been that truly has no interest in you.... The show has no credibility in the fashion world and I wouldn't hire any one of the "winners" for a show. Bootie tooch? Please, this woman gives fashion a bad name.
I always thought that ANTM began things i watched just cause it was a original now its like .....just another show what were they thinking. i never write reviews but as i watched this cycle im appalled these young ladies left school to maybe maybe win a game show what are you telling young ladies... if the show couldn't stay tru i think it should have just went away. Better to go away on top then to be forced out.
I watch all ur refund every week. One of my favorites is with the winner of Danny. But they seen to just keep repeating over and over the last five seasons. Please c if u can c about them showing some of the older shows also why cant u do an plus size show only an also why cony they call for older models why not do a show with older models we that r older would like a chance at an oppertunity to model too just cause ur older doesn't mean we cant do the job an that older women army interresred in fashion. Please give it a thought a serious thought. Thanks for considering my suggestions. Sincerely a fan since day one Candy
Im a 13 year old girl and i have always wanted to be a model i watch your show. I have always wanted to be on the show and i thought would be good. I am 13 5'9" and i have wanted to be on the show scene i was 10 or 11. I have been practicing the walk and the booty tooch. So ya just wanted to tell you i am a big fan and would love to audition on your show. <3
your show is awesome who wouldn't wanna be on your show it looks so fun. :) also i have a question how old do you have to be t be on your show? post back or email me at email@example.com
Im a 15 year old girl who dreams of being a model im 5'7 and have wanted to be on the show since i was 12. I will always watch the show, but im have a few issues with it.
I think the last cycle that i absolutely loved was probably cycle 14. ever since then the show really started going downhill. here are the reasons
1)The show used to be about modeling, now its about being a "star", I mean making them record a song is a bit dumb. I just want to see them model!
2)the judges, im sorry but they need Miss Jay, Paulina, Twiggy and basically evryone else before that. I am not a fan of this new judge Kelley.
3)Judgings used to be my favourite time because of the judging tests, its where we really got to see girls shine. But now i think the last judging test that they have done was in cycle 11 where they had to runway walk with clogs.
4)The photo shoots are not as interesting, or creative anymore. i remember when they would do the craziest stuff. I think one of my favourite photoshoots was the underwater one in cycle 13. i mean they never do that stuff anymore. They were close with the recent Macau tower one, but all they did was pose on the tower. even their outfits were a bit bland.
5)I really dislike how they cut it down to the final 2, i remember when it would be final 3 where they do cover girl, and then final 2 runway. not to mention that they dont look back at their photos at the end.
6) and the final thing is that i just want a normal cycle agian. where they do the casting episode (which is always super fun) and they select 14 girls from the u.s and they model. i mean now they are doing a college themed thing? i mean really. im sick of these themed cycles, i liked the petite cycle theme. but really where is the pureness of the show
Tyra, why dont you do a plus size show, the skinny girls are not the only beautiful women out there. Plus size girls are too. i'm plus size and i love your show, don't get me wrong it is amazing. But i do believe that big women are beautiful just like the tiny girls. I'm a big girl, and being a model is any girls dream. Even one of mine. I'm 16, i feel though as if models can only be "Skinny" , thats the way all modeling shows or performances put it out. Please if you could email me @ Adrianne.firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to maybe have your thoughts on this idea. Thanks.
What's NOT to like about this show?! You get to travel around the world with the silliest judges, the talented Tyra, and get to see the best in fashion and photography. I am a fan of both, so this show is definitely a hit for me. Being a model is not easy, but most of these models are very versatile! Keep it coming!
Remember when, once upon a time, ANTM was about modeling? Of course, there has always been the reality show element to add the drama we secretly crave, but season's 17 and 18 of this show have gone way down hill. They don't even pretend to find models anymore, now it's more about finding the next big reality star. Yawn...
im a almost 16 years old and i am only 5"2. its my dream to become a model. i watch Americas next top model every chance i get, which isnt a lot because i moved to israel almost 3 years ago. i lived in america for 8 years before moving back. is there any way i could get on your show when i am 18 even though i wont be taller than 5"5. if there is any way i could i would be a dream come true.
please e-mail me back if theres a chance my dreams could come true.
I am sixteen years old but only 5'0 and may not grow any taller. I have wanted to be a model for years and wish to be on the show. I watched the season where you had the 5'7 and shorter and I was curious as to if there would be a way to get on the show when I'm eighteen at the size of 5'0 without any trouble.
If you can give me any information it would be a pleasure to hear from you on my e-mail: let_it_rock_baby@Yahoo.com thank you for your time.
I watch occasionally just because I like to see how the makeup & clothes can remake the girls and how different they are as they act & model.
To me this is what is so interesting! I don't like it that this show as well as other shows like "Trading Places" feel they have to keep adding stuff like drama scenes hoping to make the show(s) more interesting. The drama can be done away with - but maybe it's just me -
As for this show - I was greatly disappointed on the two were were on the bottom. I honestly do not care much for the two chosen first. I feel that the bottom two were more realistic, more real people who can model and act.
