Tyra Banks lies, then admits not all Top Model contestants deserved to win

In advance of the premiere of America’s Next Top Model 10, host, judge, and den mother Tyra Banks revealed on her talk show that she’s a liar and she doesn’t really think all of the show’s winners deserved to win.

Promoting Fox’s Moment of Truth by answering Mark Wahlberg’s questions while being attached to a lie detector, she was asked, “Do you think ever America’s Next Top Model winner deserved to win?” She answered with, surprise surprise, a Tyra-centered answer. “I have gotten outvoted for girls on America’s Next Top Model that have gone home, but I have never gotten outvoted when there was a winner. I have always voted for the winner that won.” He pushed her for a yes or no, and she said that yes, every winner deserved to win. Then came the moment of truth: “That answer is false.”

Tyra laughed and said, “What’s up with that machine?” Then she immediately admitted, “Hindsight is 20/20. I don’t know they acted crazy in the house until the show airs and I’m like, darn, until we’re in the editing bay, then I’m like, oh my god, I didn’t know she did that.” Watch Tyra lie here:
