Tyra Banks America’s Next Top Model Cycle 14 “cancelled!”
Tyra Banks’ new cycle of America’s Next Top Model successfully demonstrates why the status quo remains the industry standard.
As a petite woman you owe it to yourself to tune out this series, so we are declaring that you are “CANCELLED”
The stark contrast between America’s Next Top Model Cycle 13 “shorty” edition and this latest Cycle 14 “amazon” edition is seriously disturbing. After speaking with Sundai Love, we both concur. ANTM’s blatant discrimination against petite models was without a doubt proven during the new cycle’s premiere episode. Among other things, Sundai explained that the producers cancelled plans to take the petite models abroad like they usually do each season. Instead the last cycle’s destination was Hawaii, so there’s no doubt New Zealand is a step up for the show.
Let us not forget Cover Girl Cosmetics did not fulfill their campaign promises to Sundai Love for winning the Walmart challenge on ANTM. I wonder if Cover girl will renege on their promises this cycle?
At this point we will refrain from outlining all of the discrepancies that will likely continue. Although, we can’t resist pointing out that the biggest “in our face” moment on the show was when they moved the “shorty” models into a circus style playhouse complete with toys, miniature furniture, and even candy too!
It’s no coincidence that afterwards the “shorty” models were escorted to their first photo shoot recreating childhood pictures featuring the petite models dressed like babies and clowns. As we’ve been told by Sundai the girls were “mortified and embarrassed, literally holding back the tears.” There is no doubt the girls were demeaned by this treatment. Isn’t it nice how the amazon models this season have been put up in a posh New York penthouse?
