‘America’s Next Top Model’ Fires Nigel Barker, J. Alexander & Jay Manuel

Talk about cleaning house…Tyra Banks’ model competition show,  America’s Next Top Model has let go of three of its principal players due to low ratings! Nigel Barker said he is not mad it frees him to do other projects.

“It wasn’t a shock. I’m friends with Tyra and the producers,” he exclusively tells E! News. “There had been a discussion that ratings were down and that something like this would happen.

“There had been previous years where discussions about me being eliminated from the show had happened and I had actually survived the chopping block before.”

“We had an incredible run and there aren’t any hard feelings,” he adds. “This isn’t a Tyra thing. This is a network thing. My contract was so exclusive that it was holding me back from other projects.”
