It looks like the wildly popular television model search, America’s Next Top Model, will have a new set of mentors next season. Tyra Banks, the show’s host and producer, fired photographer, Nigel Barker; runway coach, J. Alexander; and creative director, Jay Manuel.
According to reports, Banks made the tough decision not to renew their contracts, even though the three mentors are among her closest friends. Sources said Banks decided to ax the three due to disappointing ratings the past couple of years. She said it’s sad to part ways, but it’s time to give the show a new look and feel.
Fans of the show hope the next edition of America’s Next Top Model will be more exciting and have better ratings.
