I'm not understanding the Tyra Banks hate

I noticed it during Covid19 lockdown where people seemed to have nothing to do but go back to 2003 and look over every episode to find something to cry about




These model wanna be's want to get on the show after watching so many before. They get to live in a fab house for free in a happening place, then if they make it to the bottom 7 or something they get flown to another country and get to live for free in a wonderful place.




They get to win all kinds of prizes, meet people from all aspects of the industry including actors, musicians/singers, photographers, other models etc




She's giving them a crash course lite in the modelling world, that she herself experienced.

FORMER ‘AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL’ CONTESTANTS ARE DISHING THE DIRT ON THE SHOW’S ABUSES

$40 paydays, no food, and threats of $10 million lawsuits.

It looks like contestant NDAs are expiring for America’s Next Top Model, the show where everyone cries after getting their hair chopped off and has to subject themselves to insane conditions for elaborate photoshoots, including but not limited to getting wrapped in corsets so tight you can’t breathe and scaling the edges of buildings.

Like all reality shows, Tyra Banks’ long-running competition show subjected its contestants to grueling conditions, and every few months, we collectively recognize just how twisted the show was to its models. Now, more than a decade later, former contestants are speaking out about the show’s treatment of its models on TikTok and Twitter. One of these former contestants is Sarah Hartshorne, who was in the series’ ninth cycle in 2007, which is when the show felt like it was at its cultural peak.

ANTM was mesmerizing because you had the emotional and financial stakes of people fighting for a dream, along with peak 2000s fashion. Like all reality shows, ANTM was heavily edited but it didn’t feel like it relied on psychological manipulation and extreme isolation from friends and family like other reality shows do (looking at you, Bachelor!). On ANTM, models could have their phones and bring people back to their apartment to hook up with, which felt huge for reality TV. But of course nothing is as it appears, and Hartshorne recently shed light on what the experience was really like.

...

There’s obviously layers of emotional baggage to unpack here, but the nitty gritty details of the day-to-day logistics are fascinating. Every five days, someone would go grocery shopping with a list the contestants gave them. Hartshorne got flack for losing weight during the show, which she says was because, “I basically lived off iceberg lettuce and refried beans.” They never got residuals, though some days they’d have craft services on set. She says most of the girls didn’t know how to cook and there wasn’t a microwave, so most of the day they ate oven Hot Pockets and tater tots. Dark!

It's not just Tyra's show does this. When the queens were on the first few seasons of RuPaul's Drag Race, they talked about hardly getting any allowance for food. Some producer tried to give them $10 each or something and they were eating Taco Bell every day. Finally, I think it was Detox, that rose up and demanded they have some real food. There is craft services during the show filming I think, but now the queens are required to bring all the food they'll need for the 2 or 3 weeks of filming and put it in their dressing room.

As far as the $40 a day, the people on the show aren't actors or likely members of SAG/AFTRA, so they aren't entitled to scale pay. But - who knows. It's a slippery slope where producers want to cut corners and not spend money but actually make a show. It's ridiculous.

And no - no one on a reality show is going to get residuals. They sign away all that when they get on the show.

So this isn't a Tyra thing. It's a television thing.

I love Tyra Bank-ABLE

Very chic and sharp, I'm ordering her SMIZECREAM

she's very creative and I mean she had done so much to help these young women to get their foot in the door.

A female rapper with a gap, made a big deal about a season where she had one of the contestants(the one who ended up winning) close her gap some.

The rapper technically could never be a 'model' and she made this inflamatory post about it last year

That's sorta when I started hearing about the Tyra envy

She is making moves and they just hate that they are stuck

Ok so they are just dealing with two weeks. That's feasible.

Do they live in a space/apt/loft together for this time period?

$40 a day is a LOT. They get their hair done by famous stylists, they get free teeth cleaning/dental work, living in places that other only dream of...

felt slighted when the network asked Tyra to replace the crew

I mean she set him as the host for the Toronto NTM, we wouldn't know of him if it wasn't for her

Tyra Banks turns 48!

Slide 1 of 19: She's more than just a pretty face! In honor of Tyra Banks' 48th birthday on Dec. 4, 2021, Wonderwall.com is taking a peek at the former supermodel's secret double life... as a super-successful entrepreneur. Tyra's hard work has paid off: She's worth an estimated $90 million! Keep reading to see the model-actress-author-producer-TV personality-entrepreneur juggle her many roles...

Slide 11 of 19: Tyra Banks won two Daytime Emmy Awards for "The Tyra Banks Show" — and behind the scenes she founded Ty Ty Baby Productions, which produced both that show and "America's Next Top Model." The talented multi-tasker had multiple gigs during this era, and in 2009 (when this Emmy-kissing photo was taken), Forbes reported that Tyra was earning $30 million a year.

Toccara Jones Defends Tyra Banks Amid ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Exploitation Rumors

Tyra Banks And Ace King Productions Celebrate The Release Of The "America's Next Top Model" Mobile Game - Red Carpet

Former Top Model contestant, Toccara Jones is stepping in to defend Tyra Banks amid some wild rumors that have alleged the Smize founder of exploiting some of the past contenders on her hit show America’s Next Top Model.


Jones told TMZ that it was unrealistic to expect Banks to hand out serious cash to compete on the show because well… it was just a competition. She thinks Tyra is well-deserving of all of the money she’s raked in from the decade-long series. America’s Next Top Model first made its debut with UPN in May of 2003. The reality TV series and interactive competition followed aspiring models as they competed for a chance to break into the modeling industry and for a whopping cash prize. Banks was the show’s creator and executive producer all the way up until its final season in 2018.

Jones told the outlet that unfortunately a lot of newbies in the modeling industry are underpaid noting that it was absolutely “unheard of” for models to be paid during a contest. She thinks that was the whole point of the prize money. You get paid when you win, right?



The allegations surfaced following a scathing interview that season nine Top Model contestant, Sarah Hartshorne, had with The Post earlier this month. Hartshorne claimed that everything wasn’t all glitz and glam behind the scenes.

“We were not paid at all for being on the show,” the 34-year-old former plus-size model revealed.

“We were given a $38 daily cash stipend that we had to use to pay for our own food. And they didn’t even give us a microwave to heat the food up.”

She alleged that the show’s production staff kept all the girls “in the dark about almost everything” and that most of the time everyone was absolutely “tired, stressed, sleep-deprived and hungry” while filming. According to Hartshorne, who now works as a standup comedian, America’s Next Top Model did absolutely nothing for her career.
