Sadly, Tyra Banks? vision of giving every young, attractive individual a chance to make it in the modeling industry is coming to an end as American?s Next Top Model is already showing what?s perceived as the last season. However, the final contestants are still in Las Vegas and the last four episodes are yet to be completed before the stage is set for the finale.
There are six models remaining on the 12th episode titled The Guy Who Closed the Deal in Vegas. Their names are Mikey, Lacey, Devin, Nyle, Mame and Hadassah. According to next episode?s synopsis, one model will struggle to remain on the top, one model who is overconfident fails to impress everyone. While all this is going on, one model has decided to focus on love rather than concentrating on the competition, reports Realty Today.
However, Tyra Banks, creator, host and judge of the show, tweeted about its ending on Oct. 14.
?TYRA MAIL!? the former Victoria?s Secret and international supermodel wrote in her tweet, referring to the way that contestants on the show receive information. ?Thinking #ANTM22 should be our last cycle. I truly believe it?s time. May your pics be forever fierce. Keep on Smizing!?
ANTM began in 2003 as one of the first reality competition TV series, and soon became the most successful show on television. The show, which once reeled in millions of viewers, airs in more than 150 countries and has even inspired several international offshoots, reports Diamond Back Online.
According to Breezejmu, Banks took on to Instagram and wrote, ?I never thought my little idea would have people everywhere thinking differently about how they take photos. I set out to create a show where Perfect is Boring. 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.?
In response to the changing culture, ANTM underwent format changes that included British- or college-themed cycles and involved fan participation on social media, diminishing the show?s purpose and quality in the process.
So who do you think will be the Season 22 winner? Well we?re thinking that this last season?s champ will be an out-of-the-box choice so we?re pointing our fingers at two possible contestants: Devin who can be the first LGBT rep to win; or Nyle who will prove you don?t need words to survive in the loud glitzy world of modeling.
