    I think Tyra and models around the world face these issues and realities. I stopped watching the episode when they made a woman cut her hair just to eliminate her for being sad about it. That episode they also did some really sexualized, humiliating things that I just couldn't get with.. I remember having lots of respect for Tyra and then feeling like maybe she got power struck

    GTFO! Now these heffas wanna complain 10,15, 20 years later when the reality is that there were thousands of girls who would have loved the opportunity. Have several seats! This is what the industry is like when looking for runway models...

You want the fame but want it to be a smooth ride WRONG being a model is hell people are going to say all kind of nasty things to you you are going to go through a lot people needs to grow tough skin and deal with it it’s life no matter what you do you are going to face obstacles you are not comfortable with.

    Modelling industry is nasty. If she wasn't hard on them and they made it to the top, they'd crumble. She is simply representing what they are willing to get themselves into... a preview

    Yup indeed...we never see anyone else again. Maybe like for a year ... But.. I never see them in magazine s...or nothing else. Like they kill those people dreams. And only one body type. Should be more realistic people with all body type s.

    To be fair we all watched and were entertained at the time. At least she's not defending it and I hope we are all better people now.
