Tyra Banks Decides It’s Time To End “America’s Next Top Model” With Cycle 22
It’s been 12 years since Tyra Banks started her model competition reality show, and today she announced it was coming to an end.
Tyra will still be enforcing her message of inner and outer beauty on her panel talk show FabLife. Meanwhile, Banks had this to say to Instagram fans :
I set out to create a show where Perfect is Boring. So I hope you continue to love your freckles, your moles, your big forehead, your big eyes, your small eyes, your pointy chin, your tiny boobs, your full chest, your ivory or ebony skin (or every color in between) – the stuff about you that makes you well…you. And I hope you’ve learned a heck of a lot from watching. I have an inkling you have. May your photos (and selfies) be forever fierce. May you always find your light. And may you werk hallways like runways. Always remember, you are beautiful & BOOTYful. And please, keep on Smizing each and every day for TyTy.
Fierce & Love,
After 21 cycles of ANTM, Tyra posted today that cycle 22 will be the last. The creator and host of ANTM also revealed that the final episode would take place Dec. 4, 2015, Tyra’s birthday.
Tyra was the first to do a reality style competition show for models, to coin the term “smize” while screaming “WE WERE ROOTING FOR YOU” into the face of a losing contestant. The show will be sorely missed by fans!
