Tyra Banks and the "American Next Top Model" executive producer have to let go its long time personalities of judging panel including Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander. In its 18th season it has comes to a shocking decision to change its direction of the long time running model competition show to have more of a social vibes. The shows producers are looking for a reputable fashion bloggers to replace the panel judge.

Executive producer Ken Mok also weighed in on the dismissals, saying, “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.” ~ Celebritiy Gossip Net.

So what do you think of this new direction of ANTM? Is their decision good or not?


  1. Most of my workmates are addicted to this reality show. I think each judge really deserved a spot.

    1. I don't know I still want the original judges but hey this will give opportunities to all fashion bloggers

  2. The original judges are still the best. ANTM wouldn't be this far if not without these people!

  3. there's nothing wrong if they are putting fashion bloggers in the judges panel, but i hope they will only add them and not really replaced Barker, Manuel and J. Alexander. :(
