Top Model cycle 3 debuts tonight.
The third season of America’s Next Top Model debuts tonight at 8 p.m. ET on UPN. Fourteen women will compete to be the last model standing. Tyra dishes on the new season to TV Guide, and says she thought to herself that this group of models is “spoiled. They don’t realize [modeling success] takes years. And they’re very lucky–the winner’s gonna be famous in months.’” She says producers “had no idea the [personalities] were gonna be this strong and that there was gonna be this much conflict. We sit in the editing room and go, ‘Which fight should we show?’ It’s just a crazy cast and they frustrated the hell out of me a lot of times.” Those of you tuning in just to see nudity, even blurred, can save your time: producer Ken Mok tells The New York Daily News that post-Janet Jackson overreaction means no nude photo shoot this season.
