Oh snap!!! Nigel Barker certainly isn’t holding back his feelings regarding his old gig, America’s Next Top Model. To be perfectly honest, he’s only preaching the gospel. Tyra Banks certainly drove ANTM into the ground and made it into one huge joke. The show had such potential early on to truly find fashion industry’s next “big” things. Instead, it became a showcase for Banks and all her cray cray delusions.
“Whereas ‘ANTM‘ was often times a bit of a caricature of the modeling business, ‘The Face‘ isn’t,” Barker says in the promo clip below. It’s all about real clients, real jobs and a look at the modeling industry as you’ve never seen it before. Based on the short teaser released, it certainly has potential. Words can’t even describe how excited I am for the show’s premiere on the Oxygen network in February 2013.
Even though I adore Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha and glad they’re on the show as team captains and mentors, the real draw here is Naomi Campbell. That woman is a supermodel legend and one scary ass bitch. That combination is what makes her so effin’ awesome. In a video below she sternly delivers, “If you have the camera on the right, where should your head be?” FIERCE. Even my knees were quivering when I heard that and I’m not even the one it was directed to.
Campbell’s team shouldn’t be the only ones that should fear her. Her fellow mentor Kurkova is the target of couple of zingers herself. Check these two out: “You’re an idiot and now your team is going to lose,” and “I’m very disappointed in your choice, Karolina. All I’m going to tell you is that it’s game on from now on.” Classic Naomi. All that’s missing is a cellphone being thrown around ;) Check out all the promos below.
