Recently, season 24 of Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model premiered on VH1. And, I love it so far.
This season of ANTM is all about giving equal opportunity to everyone. Season 24, specifically, has added curves and age to the runway.
Erin Green, a 42-year-old mother and grandmother, was welcomed to the show to prove that one can slay at any age. However, Tyra and the rest of the judges have been working with her to step out of the 90s.
Ivana Thomas, a young, curvy, natural hair goddess, walked in with everything except confidence. This detail is what led to her speedy elimination. Poor performance resulted from her holding on to pain of the past and not being able to accept every inch of herself.
Overall, this season is more determined than ever to bring diversity to the light in a beautiful, jaw-dropping way. Other than a mean catwalk and a striking pose, all the models need is modern presence and self-love.
The show comes on VH1 Tuesdays at 8/7c. I will be tuning in tonight!
