Tyra Banks reminisces on America’s Next Top Model with ET …. After 12 years the show is coming to an end.
Tyra said she believe’s it’s time:
Tyra believes the show has run it’s course:
“We’ve done girls, guys, guys and girls, I can’t do children,” she continued. “As much as people want that, that’s just not so ethical. It’s like, ‘Five-year-old show me your smize! You’re not fierce.’ I don’t think that works.”
“I think Top Model’s biggest impact is expanding the definition of beauty,” she explained. “It’s why I started the show. I knew me telling an alabaster-skinned girl or an ebony-skinned girl, every single week, that she is the most beautiful thing and she didn’t necessarily hear that — or a girl with frizzy red hair and freckles or a girl with a huge forehead and knock-a-knees — that she was fierce and edgy and cool [is important]. And I really think that has changed the face of what people think is beautiful around the world. So for that, I’m very thankful I was able to have my show.”
