Say what? Kendall Jenner is following Tyra Banks’ footsteps and may be the next host for “America’s Next Top Model?” The show has been reported to be looking for a new host now that Banks is expecting, and it was said that Kendall’s the best bet.
Producers of the long-aired series “America’s Next Top Model” is allegedly on the move to find the next host for the show after Tyra Banks. A source allegedly revealed to Hollywood Life, “Kendall may be the new host of the 23rd season of ANTM. Producers are also going after Gigi Hadid, 20, but no final decisions have been made yet. The show was dropped from CW after 22 seasons with Tyra as the host, and she will stay on as producer and is helping to cast her replacement. Producers feel Kendall has the modeling experience needed for the job and is young enough to attract a hipper audience.”
From “Keeping up with the Kardashians” to “America’s Next Top Model,” huh?
The report indicates that the show has transferred to VH1, and since Tyra is expecting, it is said that the show is on a lookout for the next influential model to fill in the big shoes of the supermodel. Furthermore, it is said that Kendall and Gigi, best friends in real life and supermodels themselves, are said to be the most qualified to take Tyra’s spot.
It is said that Kendall has the most exposure on TV as a model. However, producers are allegedly in a dilemma whether she has the “Tyra fierceness” that made the show work.
With Gigi, it was revealed that she may be a natural fit for the role, since she’s more of a mystery compared to her best friend. Although she hasn’t shown her personality as publicly as Kendall had, the source indicated that her renowned name in the fashion industry may stir curiosity for viewers.
In other news, the Daily Mail reports that Kendall Jenner has been labelled by Forbes as the highest paid model in 2015 along with her sister, Kylie Jenner. Kendall reportedly earned $4 million dollars during 2015 and is currently showcasing Australian brand TY-LR as one of her wardrobe choices.
Labelled as the highest paid model in 2015, a TV superstar thanks to “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” and a Victoria’s Secret angel like Tyra herself, will Kendall Jenner be the best replacement for in upcoming installments of “America’s Next Top Model?”
