RO: Start now. Did you like this article? Shark Tank has gained viewers each of its seven years. On the other it detracts from the fun, insular fantasy world ANTM worked so hard to create.
PS: I know Ashley Graham is one of the judges this season, but there aren't any plus-size models in this cycle.
The prizes are phenomenal. Beginning in Cycle 19, the show fired its regular judges and mentor figures —the photographer Nigel Barker, the photoshoot director Jay Manuel, and the runway coach J.
There aren't any plus-size contestants, but there doesn't have to be. It starts with the first episode. Chantelle Brown-Young, an ANTM alumna with the chronic skin condition vitiligo, had a devoted Internet following before she appeared in Cycle 21, and has used her publicity from the show to land international gigs.
We cast a winner off that, and the prize is great. As in, get your look together, get your ideas together, get your online presence somewhat happening in some sort of way. PS: No?
Overall, though, it seems like ANTM is heading in a positive new direction.
Ashley, her story is so interesting and I don't think a lot of people know that about Ashley as much as they should.
