How wearying to be Tyra Banks during the weeks before a new season of America's Next Top Model! How challenging to make its endless cycles of shows seem fresh! The CW series is heading into its fifteenth installment, for crying out loud -- and has been losing viewers since 2004. Lucky for Banks, two things may just ease her challenge this time around.
“In an effort to create a fun and entertaining sneak peek of the upcoming cycle, America’s Next Top Model released a trailer that was edited in way that misconstrued our overarching message,” Banks said in a statement to People magazine. Still, the media tsk-tsking lasted for days, and it confirmed what many point out is a stubbornly entrenched weight standard among models. That's not a good thing, of course. But it got people talking about the show again!
