Tyra Banks Cleans House For The Next Season Of “Top Model”

His Best ANTM Moments
A retrospective tribute to the icon's time on the show. Read More »

I guess Tyra Banks is aware that she’s grasping at straws on this season of “America’s Next Top Model.” You know when you do a segment called “Tooch Teach” that it’s time to change stuff up. After 19 Cycles of almost exactly the same thing, Tyra has decided to clean house for the next season of the show. Yesterday, J. Alexander, Jay Manuel and Nigel Barker were dismissed from the “Top Model” family to make way for “major changes planned for [the next season].” PR mogul Kelly Cutrone was the only judge to survive the blood bath. But that could be because Tyra’s scared of her. I know I am. Keep reading »

A Breakdown Of Tyra Banks’ Tooch Teach On Last Night’s “Top Model”

This season of “America’s Next Top Model” has been particularly dull. The UK vs. US premise seems secondary to Tyra’s shameless attempts to promote her Modelland books. Last night, Tyra achieved an unprecedented level of ridiculousness with her “booty tooch teach.” She had special “booty tooch” hot shorts and “training tooches” (ass pads) for all the contestants to wear. But things weren’t all tranquil in Toochland. American model hopeful AzMarie refused to wear her training tooch because she felt it would take away from her androgyny. Oh, and because she’s a “grown ass woman.” She had a point, but she paid dearly for crossing Tyra and was dismissed from the tooch teach. Her loss. Because it was very informative. Whether you’re an aspiring Intoxibella, or just a regular woman in need of a tooching lesson, click through to see all do’s and don’ts.

For the next season of “America’s Next Top Model,” host Tyra Banks is hoping to incite an age-old rivalry between the Brits and Americans. She’s bringing some of her past British “Top Model” contestants over to go up against a crop of seven new model babies in “ANTM: British Invasion.” One’s already doing the “booty tooch.” The gimmicks never stop with this one.

Tyra Cops To Playing A Role On “ANTM”

“When I did my show, created my show or whatever, I also created a persona on ‘Top Model.’ And it’s a character … So, when I’m sitting there and I have all this make-up on, and I’m like, ‘Your picture’s not fierce…’ talking all that and reprimanding the girls, that is a character … I don’t do that, like, in real life; I’m passive aggressive. I’m anti-confrontational; I’m even in coaching to learn how to be confrontational. It’s a character, but people think it’s real. I’m so not sexy. I know how to turn it on for a picture, but I’m not sexy in real life.”

Tyra Banks on her “ANTM” alter ego. I wonder if she calls her alter ego Tookie. I wonder if she looks in her mirror each morning and whispers, “I am Tookie” to her reflection.  I want to believe this so badly — that Tyra is really humble and meek and not the egomaniac she comes off as. Really I do.  [Clutch Mag]

“Top Model” ["Pot Ledom"] All-Stars Go Viral

Watch Video

Last night’s episode of “Top Model” (or should I say “Pot Ledom”?) was “absolutely epic” to quote Amelia. The all-stars had to write, record, and make music videos to “go viral.” Best catch: they had to work the hook “Pot Ledom” (Top Model spelled backwards) into their songs. Another weird-as-s**t Tyra brainchild. Of course, Tyra  made an appearance in every video along with internet sensation Keenan Cahill (I somehow have no idea who he is). There were many deliciously cringe-worthy moments — like watching Alexandria Everett try to dance. Rapper The Game, who directed the videos, referred to her as the Tin Man. Okay, getting to the nugget of gold in the episode — because there is always a nugget in every “ANTM” episode. The Game, oddly enough, became obsessed with Allison Harvard, who wrote  an emotional and haunting song called “Underwater” about her deceased father. I’ll admit, I have been singing it all morning and annoying my co-workers. I just can’t stop! In judging panel, The Game called Allison (who obviously won best video) “the most weirdly beautiful person he’s ever met” and admitted to Tyra that he was attracted to her. It was just … wow. All these cycles and “Pot Ledom” never loses its appeal.

What did you think of Allison’s video? The other girls? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Just What You Always Wanted: A “Top Model” Fragrance

If you thought the all-star season of “America’s Next Top Model” was indication that the model competition show had jumped the shark, think again. Now Tyra Banks is releasing an ANTM fragrance called Dreams Come True … Uh, that’s not exactly what happens to the winning model on ANTM, but we’ll let Tyra have her delusions. You know, there’s a whole generation of ANTM viewers still willing to give Tyra their ratings and money, and they only have to wait until January when the fragrance will be released. We’re not exactly sure what Dreams Come True will smell like, but Racked has some ideas. And let us know if the idea of an ANTM fragrance entices you. [Racked]

Vogue Rips Off “America’s Next Top Model,” Sort Of

Remember when Tyra made the girls of cycle six of “America’s Next Top Model” pretend they were some broken down dolls? It looks like art is now imitating reality TV. In this spread for Vogue Italia – you know, the magazine that ANTM’s winner gets a spread in? – photographer Tim Walker shoots models Audrey Marnay and Kirsi Pyrhonen as different kinds of dolls. Et tu, Mr. Walker?

Tyra Banks (with the help of Kristin Cavallari‘s butt) may have coined the term “booty tooch” to denote an over-exaggerated arch of the lower back to accentuate the posterior,  but it’s hardly a new move.
