America’s Next Top Model franchise is about to expand. Reports recently indicated that the show will go to Africa, so the format will head to a new continent. Tyra Banks was the one to make the official announcement. The star and host of America’s Next Top Model posted the good news on her Twitter account. According to Tyra, the new show will be hosted by famous Nigerian model Oluchi Onweagba Orlandi. Orlandi will serve as both host and executive producer of the show. Tyra was quite happy to welcome the model to the African team of the show, as her tweet indicated.

Next Top Model in Africa is expected to be a really spectacular competition. It looks like the show will include 12 participants from 8 African countries. They will all compete in a series of photo-shoot challenges, respecting the format of the American version of the show. One lucky girl will be crowned the winner of the show, getting the title of Next Top Model in Africa.


The judges of this new show have yet to be announced and it surely is quite interesting to find out who will be evaluating the beautiful girls on the way to be crowned Next Top Model. Production of the new show is expected to begin in August, in Cape Town, South Africa, so the names of the judges will probably be announced soon. Next Top Model will air in Africa on the MNET Africa Magic channels.

This news was not shocking at all, as in the past few months the show has received a lot of interest from designers and fashion shows from Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa. And it looks like Oluchi Onweabga is pleased with her role of hosting the new franchise, which will be produced by Lulu Production, her company, under the CBS Studios International umbrella.


“I am excited to be hosting “Africa’s Next Top Model” and it is great to be part of the successful “America’s Next Top Model” franchise that Tyra Banks created and has hosted for an impressive 20 cycles thus far in the U.S,” Olunchi claimed according to Style Blazer. The model also added that the she is sure the show will be a stunning success. “The African version of the franchise is long overdue and I expect the show to be a smashing success across the continent,” Oluchi explained.

Well, there are just few months left until the show will start airing. If Oluchi will manage to make the show a beloved competition in Africa and if Next Top Model will become as popular as everyone expects, is something we will surely find out soon. Until then, the shows seems to be an amazing project.

America’s Next Top Model VS The Face

Filed under: American Next Top Model - 26 Apr 2013  | Spread the word !

It’s been almost ten years since Tyra Banks crowned Adrianne Curry as the first winner of America’s Next Top Model and, over time, Tyra has since removed Adrianne from the show’s reference and continued to crown future top models 19 cycles later.

For nearly a decade, Tyra Banks has been given America her version of a top model. Now, 19 cycles later and few real successful models from her choices, there’s a new kid on the block: The Face.


The Face, hosted by none other than Nigel Barker, one of the judges fired by Tyra Banks from America’s Next Top Model, who comes along with working super models including Naomi Campbell ((Executive Producer), Karolina Kurkova (Victoria’s Secret), and the youngest of the group, Coco Rocha.

The premise of America’s Next Top Model (ANTM) is to pit 12 girls against each other in weekly challenges, take a photo, and the best one wins (technically). Whereas on The Face, the contestants are not the only ones competing. Each supermodel mentor picks 4 girls and has to groom them. Each week the teams compete against each other, but there is an individual element as well. Both shows have their share of drama, but on The Face, it’s not just between the girls, but the mentors as well.


What makes The Face stand out – aside from the team element – is the focus on actually mentoring the girls. According to Coco, they spent 18 to 20 hours a day with the contestants. They taught them things that America’s Next Top Model seems to assume the girls already know when they walk in the door, such as how to pose, walk, and speak as a spokesperson.

In the pilot episode of The Face, there are 24 girls competing for 12 spots. Over 72 hours, they are required to take a photo with absolutely no makeup on, do a shot where they dress themselves from head to toe, and then finally, each ‘surviving’ girl is chosen by a mentor who holds up a folder with the name of the team on it. If more than one team chooses a particular girl, the decision lays with the contestant, meaning that she will be the one choosing the team she wants to be a part of. If none of the mentors hold up a card, the person is eliminated.


On America’s Next Top Model, it is not quite clear how the twelve girls are chosen, since this process takes place before the show starts. In the Australian and British versions of ANTM, you do see the process a little bit more. With The Face, in gearing up to the premiere, Nigel Barker and the supermodels have been raking up press, releasing clips, and pumping up the show on various social media sites.

If The Face turns out to be a success, this could mean the end of America’s Next Top Model, which has been plagued with low ratings and bad PR due to the unceremonious way Nigel, Miss J, and Jay were let go. Also, in the ten years the show has been on air, there have been few – if any – models that have gone on to have a successful career in modeling. Adding to this, ANTM seems to be running out of ideas on how to revamp the show, which resulted in it being moved from twice a year to once.


Could The Face beat America’s Next Top Model? Only ratings will tell, but they do have a strong, smart foundation with using working supermodels, having individual and team components, and knowing how to use social media to fire up their base.

America’s Next Top Model is without a doubt one of the most famous television shows at the moment. The show has numerous fans in the United States, so everyone is willing to find out who will win this new cycle of the show. Still, it looks like America’s Next Top Model has been in the middle of a scandal, as one of its designers has been accused with sexual assault. And the designer was actually found guilt, being sentenced on the case.


Anand Jon Alexander is the fashion designer who was sentenced to jail after sexually assaulting a model. In fact, the story is even more complicated than it may seem at first. So, Alexander was previously sentenced to 59 years in California for sexual assault related crimes. The famous America’s Next Top Model designer pleaded guilty to one of the charges in February. He admitted to have assaulted a woman whom he promised would help to become a star in the modeling world.


Well, according to prosecutors there were more victims than what Alexander decided to admit. Prosecutors also said that some of the victims of this man were minors, but despite that Alexander had no problems in forcing himself on them. Anand Jon Alexander was offered a plea deal including 5 more years in jail, having under consideration the huge sentence he already received. Despite all accusations, the designer’s family said that Alexander was innocent and he had done nothing wrong.


Anand Jon Alexander has become a famous designer years ago. He worked with the girls on America’s Next Top Model, too, but also with some of the most famous models and celebrities in the world. During the trial, the 39 year old designer was transferred from the California prison he had been held into to New York. Now, the designer’s prison time amounts the time he received in this case and the one he still has to complete in California.

As the 19th season of America’s Next Top Model is getting closer to its finale, things are really interesting. The Girls Go To Jamaica is the newest episode of America’s Next Top Model. Now, there are only 6 girls left in the competition, but things are  tougher than ever. One of the previously eliminated girls has already come back to the show. She also joined the group on the road to Jamaica, news that wasn’t that well received by the other contestants.

Leila’s return to the America’s Next Top Model house was not seen with good eyes by the other models. Leila has always been seen as a huge competition by the girls, so there is no wonder after all that her return to the house was not that appreciated.

Every girl cried when hearing about Leila’s elimination from America’s Next Top Model, but they were not that happy about the return. After all, this is a competition and the purpose is to win the title. This is what every girl dreams of.

On the other hand, scandals seem to continue into the house, as Victoria recently told Tyra that she feels bullied by the other girls. However, it looks like Victoria enjoys this, as she keeps herself away from the group and plays the role of the victim.

Either way, the models are going to enjoy a wonderful Jamaican experience. They choose their rooms at the Half Moon Resort, where they will be staying for the whole period. Laura, last week’s winner, was favored for her success, but all the girls got to sit down with Tyra and discuss about modeling techniques.

Models show their dancing skills

Then, the girls dancing skills were tested and Nastasia and Kiara were the winners, as they did best in the dance department. The two girls were awarded with an impressive collection of jewelry by a Jamaican designer, as well as $10,000 for their scholarship found.

During their staying in Jamaica, the girls got to work with famous photographer William Richards. With this photo shoot, they tried to get the true essence of Jamaica. Some of the girls managed to do just fine at the photo shoot, while others did not make such a good job. The week’s winner for top photo went to Nastasia this time. Laura and Leila followed her, as their photos were appreciated, too. Victoria was the one to be eliminated.

Victoria is eliminated from the show

Following the elimination, Victoria declared: “I’m so frustrated at this point. I wanted it – I wanted it so badly. I think about my mum and she’s given me everything. She’s done so much for me and I wanted to be able to achieve this for her and give back to her in some way,” Victoria claimed during the show. The model also declared that she thought she would be to go far in the competition.

As one more episode from America’s Next Top Model has ended, we are closer to the moment when the winner will be established. All the girls have chances of winning, but only one will get the much desired title.
