January 26, 2010

Tyra Banks may be shutting down shop on her successful daytime talk show, but in addition to America’s Next Top model, another Tyra Banks reality show is in the works. A casting call for a Fiercely Real Teen model search is under way and Banks is looking for a fierce teen. Read more here.

Yes, my friends, another Tyra Banks reality show is in the works and this time the fierce model with the fabulous weave is seeking teens between the ages of 13 and 19 who wears a size 12 or bigger. The Fiercely Real Model search is under way.

The point of this show? Banks says she wants people, especially teens, to understand that what’s considered plus-size is the average American woman and that is what she is looking for this time around. Banks tells Us magazine, “I’ve always felt it was my mission to expand the narrow perceptions of beauty; through America’s Next Top Model, True Beauty and The Tyra Show I challenge industry and universal standards by featuring and celebrating non-traditional beauty, and stressing that true beauty is both inside and out. Plus-sized tends to have a negative connotation and I want young girls to realize that what’s considered plus-sized is the average American woman. That woman is healthy, fit and beautiful. Adolescence is such an impressionable time in a young woman’s life, and I hope this contest helps teen girls discover their own beauty from the inside out.” That surely makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

The winner will get a one-year modeling contract with a major agency, a photo spread in a major fashion magazine, and a photo with Tyra on the cover of Tyra’s MagaLine. Not too shabby! What do you think of a new Tyra Banks reality show? Will you be watching it?
