I think America's Top Model show is biased. ALl they portray is Black and White women. THere are no Asians or other minority races portrayed as if modelling is ONLY geared to Black and White. I stopped watching the show. Brian Boy Tyra Banks and trans gender critiques/judges on the show are contrived, affected and boring in my opinion.

I love the show and I agree about the social media. I do not like this part of the show, normal people's opinion shouldn't make or break an aspiring model's career because social media ppl aren't experts and I don't like Bryan Boy either. I know the ratings depend on social media but whether they are involved or not, your fans will still watch. Kelly is so unprofessional and rude, especially the way she acted during the college cycle when Laura was doing her photo shoot. Kiara should have won over Laura, another disappointment. Tyra, when are you going to have a cycle for women age 35-55 or older and being 5'4" to 5'9". That's my age group and height and I would love to compete because I like modeling.

I do enjoy the show but I cannot stand that social media guy. There is no need for that pompous big nosed guy. Seriously if their doing this whole social media thing why bother with the judges at all then. I want to hear more about what they thought because they are the experts not that guy with a tablet! XP

... because Tyra Banks has money and wants something to do and is too old and "bulky" to still work...... not because viewer really WANT to see this show.

Couldn't agree more Karen. While I do appreciate an 'unbiased' opinion from an alternate judge, the social media aspect does tend to lead towards the opposite effect. Great models who simply have a bad photo get sent packing because of a 'low score' from random people. I think context matters and that's why judges were a good thing. Living photo its probably a product placement for an app. Guys & Girls however was a great addition, perfect for everyone!

Dear Tyra, Have seen every season thus far, not a fan of the social media piece and the "living photo". Loved the addition of men, always wondered why she didn't do a all male edition.

Thank Goodness!!! The winners from the first 20 seasons have made such an impact I would hate to see this ground breaking series come to an end! And Tyra's attitude never makes me want to vomit and run through a plate glass window.
