    Hey ya'll! Today on my channel we are reacting to some of the most problematic america's next top model moments. I knew the fashion and modelling industry was and still is problematic. But, how is it that this show was allowed to air on television? It might have been entertaining, but looking back, ANTM did not age well. Enjoy.

    Tyra is definitely not ok. Tyra is the epitome of "I will normalize the abuse I went through by doing it to others and tell them they have to deal with it, cause I did."

      @Yours Truly as a pole dancer who is also a certified trainer, they are stripper heels. It’s important to know where they came from. In the majority of states exotic dancers HAVE to wear them. In my state it’s illegal to not wear them. Same with pole dance in general. It’s becoming more mainstream as an exercise but that shouldn’t undermine the way it all came about. Pole dance has always had its roots in clubs. To say that you shouldn’t call them stripper heels bc not all pole dancers are strippers is not right. Strippers HAVE to wear them and they were made for that purpose. Studio pole dancers have the choice.

    I remember when they told a girl to shave her hair, and she spend 5 years growing it cause of a hair or scalp issues. The second they told her they were shaving her head, she yelled no, walked off and left that following day. NEVER, if they can't take you for you, cause not EVERYONE is the same, they aren't worth it.

      @WhatIDoWhoIam wtf I've been in the modeling industry, you get to choose your jobs unless you don't.... but I had options, and there were hair shows and things but mainly they would hire you for what you had because no one was going to spend extra time on you and pay you? Like why
      Again due to scalp or health issues, nowadays this would not be permitted in many workplaces and is seen as abuse... "but as a model" as a model you should still be treated with respect because you are a human being and humans have rights.

      TheBHK1 24 days ago +7

      Going bald probably would have hurt her career. Most designers want natural hair of some sort on a model. Wigs are expensive and can be hard to work with styling for a lot of looks. Only very few models successfully pull off being bald compare to how many professional models there are.

      Tyra has the most self-inflated who I’ve ever seen. Now that she has Dancing With the Stars she’s made that all about her, with dramatic wardrobe changes through the whole show. Tom just wore a suit and was super nice and down to earth with the contestants, especially when they were down/had a bad week. As opposed to Tyra basically saying to the contestants ‘How does it feel, being so shitty?’

  • Morgan McNaughtan

    This show was ridiculous. No designer is going to throw models onto a runway without practicing the routine. There is a big difference between undressing backstage (you get used to it quickly) and no one is paying attention to it due to the chaos, but posing nude is different. I will say that you do have to have thick skin because the people you audition for have no problem tearing you apart. I stopped modeling because I like food too much lol.

      The way Jay said ”ohhh nooooo :0” after one of the other girls told him that she just lost a friend was the fakes shit I’ve ever seen. He seemed happy about it too. Like we all know they love that cause it’ll create more drama but I think ANTM is one of the shows where you can see the whole crew’s enjoyment at tearing these girls down a little too easily

    So much love for the girl who stood her ground and refused to pose nude. I'm a former sex worker, so I'm definitely not judging anyone who does. But I also recognize that not everyone is comfortable with that, and no one should be forced or pressured into doing something like that. And especially having all 5 of them sitting there basically yelling at her about.. I can't imagine how hard that was.
    I hate to admit it, but I feel like if it were me I would've panicked and just said "okay" and did whatever they wanted. Sadly, most girls probably did that.

    They just tortured those girls. I recently saw an article by a "plus-sized model" who said she had to wear padding. They don't even use people who are legitimately the size to model clothing. It's no wonder we criticize our own bodies.

    • Satu Stinks

      I think some companies also genuinely just photoshop ”plus size” models to be bigger but in the ”right” way. But I definitely also remember the early to mid 2000’s having an even more skewed idea of what ”plus size” meant. Like literally even super skinny women got called plus size if they had wide hips. And I mean their literal bone structure

    I have a (almost) 13 year old autistic cousin and I remember watching the season with the GORGEOUS Heather who's autistic as well and just crying when the girls all mocked and provoked and tormented her just because she acted a bit differently. I was thinking of my beautiful cousin the entire time and he is growing up to be a winner in every walk of life, just like Heather. And at the end of the day she was braver and stronger and smarter than all the other "normal" assholes on that show so I do think it is valuable to some degree as far as message go but it's definitely unnecessarily brutal, they could've made if fun and respectful at the same time it doesn't have to contradict.

    I find it interesting that Tyra did a slow turn at 8:35 *appearing* extremely pissed off at the judge who spoke so harshly to Yahya. But then she did a 180 a told Yahya she had to apologize to an inanimate object.
    There needs to be a part 2 to this because there are other instances where the contestants were treated like shit. Of course with it being "reality" TV, the producers played a HUGE role in the drama and how the girls were treated both on air and off.

    • Jackie Kurtz
      Jackie Kurtz 2 months ago +1

      Of course, there is always stuff they will not air because of ratings. I think Tyra was trying to get her to adjust her attitude. Throughout the rest of that season while Yahya was on the show the girls started to not like her. She just acted as the world revolved around her.
      Some girls forget they are in a competition and don't have a high-paying modeling job yet.

    It's crazy that they got mad about the girl who didn't want to close the gap in her teeth, because I remember an episode where they wanted to INCREASE the gap in a girl's teeth, and when she refused they kicked her off the show before she even did her first photoshoot.

  • Girl in the Striped Sweater

    I've never felt any desire to watch the show because I never understood how Tyra could put people through the same hell that she probably went through to make it in the modeling industry, and feel ok with that. Now seeing all the abuse, body shaming, misogyny, racsm and the long list of other problematic issues, makes it even more gross to know that she contributed to these disgusting practices.

    ANTM Is the perfect example of what happens when someone like Tyra, who started out as a nobody and worked her way up to celebrity status, now uses that status to bully people because she has forgotten what it was like on the other side table. She's on a power trip in these shows; it's that simple. As much as she claims to remember what it's like to be at the bottom, she sure is quick to dig her heels into others to grind them down. This is why I never liked her.

      Used to watch the show because I enjoyed the final product and photo reveals... OK and the drama a bit, I admit. I consciously made the choice to stop watching at some point because Tyra is soooo narcissistic but claims all she does is altruistic. If you have to SAY you're selfless, you ain't selfless. Everything that comes out of her mouth on camera is phony and contrived to make people think something particular about her. She's spent so much of her life trying to sell things with her image that she has become a living sales pitch... that no one is willing to buy anymore.

      The "logic" from Tyra Banks is stupid.
      Tyra: Oh I KNOW how those other models feel because *I MYSELF* came from the bottom and worked my way to the top to be WHERE AND WHO I am today!
      ALSO Tyra: If *YOU* wanna be a model like ME and make it BIG, then you have to be SUPER skinny, risk your mental, physical and emotional health, work like a 24/7 factory worker and basically take ALL the toxic, abusive bullying from me AND my friends so we can take our aggression and such growing up on you, get paid AND be entertained at your humiliation as well!
      Hope somebody in the higher ups saw this kind of abuse and fired Tyra and her posse on the spot for it. And Tyra has a TALK SHOW now, right?

    So happy I never watched this show. My mom tried getting me to be a model as a toddler, by the time I was 5 she took me out because I threw the biggest temper tantrum ever in the dressing room and it spilled over on the runway. My fit was over the fact that another girl got to wear the polar/teddy bear overalls and I had to wear the itchy dress. My mom who is all about looks was mortified, and boy do I still remember the whopping I got when we got home that night but never had to model again!

      @Jackie Kurtz I remember this season too and the way they treated Yaya bc she had a strong sense of self, was confident and was proud of her heritage was f#%ked up. They edited that sh!t to make her a villain bc reality tv loves making dark skinned black women villains especially when they are strong. What Tyra did to Yaya that entire seAson, was totally despicable and so were the comments of that stupid white lady that told her she didn’t have to try to be so Afrocentric 🙄🙄🙄 whatever the hell that was supposed to mean.

      True! I used to watch this show and remember that episode. It wasn't much of her standing up for herself it was her attitude behind it. As the show went on she got more of a chip on her shoulder and came across as a know-it-all. Not defending the judges but I think they were trying to get her to be more humble and less stuck up.

The expectations they have for the models is completely in-human and I feel like they actively try to destroy every models self esteem.

She herself said "I'm half black, so being transformed in to a proud african woman for me is definately an exciting experience". It wasnt a "racial sterotype". She's not "offended" at having it done, so u are for her? They explained why they did it...& she loved it!!! Good for her.

I feel bad for thinking the girls should just do as they’re told because I thought that is what models are supposed to do to be successful. I only watched the first two seasons then lost interest,.
    I do remember thinking “that’s messed up” when they put them in physical danger (like an episode where they had these incredibly slender girls, almost naked, on top of a windy building during winter... like, wtf.) It never registered that their words were just as cruel.

The whole thing was caught on camera. The judges berated HER, told her she should have let it go and after all, it was supposed to be a "sensuous" shoot so why did she look so frozen in her photograph. My GOD.
    Not ONE person during the shoot or afterwards told the male model to stop or leave. Not ONE.

She was recovering from anorexia, but Tyra chewed her out saying "Your body is your temple!!"

The second half of the course has a final runway show at the end, and me and some other students volunteered to help to see what the second half was going to be like. The school hired a professional runway instructor, and half the time she was yelling at people and swearing, and we were just students! I couldn’t tell if she had already toned her attitude down for us, or if that was her usual style. Either way it was equally terrifying, and to think she’s just one of the many in the field.

I was confused why she was their "mentor" after what she had said to these models in this video. People, like Tyra, have been brainwashed. I really can't stand that there are people like her who actually see skinny people with a belly as plus-size. Like, have they never read how sizes work? Sizes 5-8 are nowhere in the plus-size area!

    The real question is, what does modeling as a profession say about our culture?

    I watch about one and a half episodes of ANTM (and every single Brad Mondo reaction video) before I gave the show a big NOPE!
    I was the weirdo who loved fashion and gorgeous cars, but didn’t wear makeup, constantly dressed like I was about to head into a dance class or horseback lesson, and refused to get a driver’s license until my parents bought me a car in my mid-twenties.
    Honestly, I thought I had the perfect way to get out of driving when I told them I’d get my license if the got me a Prius… I haven’t tried to bluff my parents since.
