Jay Manuel, Nigel Barker and J Alexander Leave ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Show
Jay Manuel, Nigel Barker and J Alexander have been eliminated from the next cycle of America’s Next Top Model show. They will not be on the 19th cycle of the CW show that has a college theme. Casting for the cycle has been done and Tyra Banks already confirmed that the three are not on the list of cast. Tyra said that the show had made the cast and her a family and she was actually excited about what the future has for them all and that she loved the three who had been eliminated too.
Nigel also confirmed the news when he wrote on his blog that he would not be in for the 19th cycle of the show. However, he confirmed that the years he has spent on the show were fun filled. He admitted that he would miss the entire show crew and that the show will always have a special place in his heart. He is a photographer by passion but he had a judge role on the show from the 1st cycle.
Nigel talked about his next move. He said it is more thrilling and with higher prospects and he hoped that he would involve everyone in his next prospect. He somehow hinted that he might have a TV project in future when he mentioned that he has 18 cycles of reruns and dared people to watch his next show.
However, Ken Mok, show’s executive producer mentioned that these three had been a vital part of the show as they helped the show get to where it is currently. He added that the three would forever remain a part of the show family as they were among the greatest assets of the show. He said that the show would collaborate with them on future projects.
Jay Manuel had the role of creative director for the show’s photo shoots way since cycle 1 and he also hosted the Canada’s Next Top Model show. J Alexander on the other hand is a trainer of models with emphasis on runway skills and was also a judge on a couple of cycles of the show. The show runs on CW every Wednesdays night.
