Alicia Amin is chiming in on the on-going controversy about the “Top Model” franchise on her Twitter account.
In this case, the online personality appeared to echo the same sentiment with former “America’s Next Top Model (ANTM)” jury, Nigel Barker, about the show being “dishonest”. For the uninitiated, Alicia competed on the 5th cycle of “Asia’s Next Top Model” and was eliminated on the 5th episode.
Earlier in February, the English TV personality made an appearance in an interview with YouTuber Oliver TwiXt. During the chat, Nigel was asked by a content creator, “Do you believe that the girls’ best photo is always chosen?” He replied, “No, God no, absolutely not…I would even get upset with that.”
The 48-year-old further admitted, “Tyra (Banks) would have the final say. There were times where I’d be like ‘wait that’s not the best picture that I picked!'” The interview session had since gone viral, with fans assuming that the show was rigged and some of the competing models were sabotaged.
As mentioned earlier, Nigel’s statement has also caught the attention of “Next Top Model” alum Alicia herself. She wrote on her Twitter, “Y’all seriously thought the ‘(Next) Top Model franchise was honest??? LMAO.” She tweeted in response to a fellow Twitterverse member, Dylan Hafer, who demanded HBO to produce a “7-part docuseries” on what was happening on the set of the popular reality series.
