Tyra Banks Just Fired Everyone On America’s Next Top Model

Miss J. Alexander, Jay Manuel, and noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker have been dismissed from America’s Next Top Model after 18 seasons. Now who’s going to teach aspiring models how to walk a runway and take fierce photographs?

Page Six reports that the judges’ contracts weren’t renewed because of a “production decision” to amp up social media efforts. Producers have reportedly been in touch with bloggers like Bryan Boy and fashion insiders with a strong Internet following to be on the show.

Banks and Barker awkwardly said their farewells to each other via Twitter:

But Alexander doesn’t have a Twitter, and Manuel is too busy to update us on his situation:

Bryan Boy hasn’t confirmed or denied reports. But if the rumors are indeed true and he accepts a spot on the judges’s panel, he’ll be making even more dough than he already does.
