Tyra Banks Cleans House At ‘ANTM’: Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel & J Alexander Are Out

Goodness! Clearly Tyra Banks has decided to make some changes to her long-running show, ‘America’s Next Top Model.’ She has not renewed the contracts for most of the panel: Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander. All three have been with the show since it started 18 cycles ago. Tyra wrote on her Facebook page:

To my Nigel Barker, Miss J, and Mr Jay: Thank you for all of our years together on America’s Next Top Model! Working with you is always an absolute pleasure. Excited for what the future holds for us. XOXO, TyTy

Nigel addressed his departure on his blog:

Many of you have come to know me over the past eight years on the show, during which we have shared numerous amazing adventures. It has been an exciting chapter in my life.. I will miss the cast, the crew and ANTM will always have a special place in my heart, having made life-long friendships with countless fond memories.

I guess Tyra and the other producers are looking to make BIG changes. I have to admit, I haven’t watched ‘ANTM’ in a while. Have you? How do you feel about this?
