Because Simon Cowell firing every recognizable person on The X Factor is working out so well for him, Tyra Banks decided that it’s time for every one else on her show to Gee-Tee-Eff-Oh, which means you probably shouldn’t expect to see Nigel Barker, J. Alexander and Jay Manuel on the next season of America’s Next Top Model. Jezebel reports:
Apparently there are “big changes” in store for the show, and the new judges may be style bloggers. Think designer-label obsessed fur enthustaist Bryan Boy. No, really. BryanBoy. In a statement, executive producer Ken Mok says: 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.
In no-bullshit terms, “They cost too much and take too much attention from the real star, Tyra Banks’ crazy. Not Tyra; her crazy. That’s really the only people pay attention. What, you thought people watched Tyra’s talk show for her sparkling intellect? Of course not. They watched it to see a once beautiful and dignified lady walk around in a fat suit while peeing herself over Vaseline.” Stop me if I’m too on the nose here.
