Tyra Banks Disappointed by Models Who Slim Down for Work

'America's Next Top Model' judge Tyra Banks has revealed that she is often disappointed when girls leave the show and feel forced to drop weight in order to get modeling jobs. She admits that the models who appear on the show are usually above standard weight and after they leave the show, they're forced to reach the same standards as typical models and thus are told to go on a diet by agencies.

Tyra says she is often disappointed to see former contestants from the show looking stick thin because of this pressure to drop weight: "The sad thing is that on average, my girls on 'America's Next Top Model' are larger than the high fashion girls on runways, and when they leave they're excited; they're like, 'Yay, I'm going to start modelling.' And then they get in the real world, and they're like, 'My agent is saying I need to lose 20lbs.' I'll see them four months later and they are a bone. A bone. It's just like, 'What?'

Tyra adds that the show protects the models from the harsh realities of the real modeling world and when they finally join a normal modeling agency they realize they have to drop weight in order to be up to scratch or they'll be dropped for someone else: "Then I realise that they were in this beautiful incubator of safety, but then when they leave the competition, they're out there with the wolves, and to compete they have to lose that weight. That's a sad fact."

The model, who has famously struggled with her own weight issues in the spotlight, says she sadly can't control what the models go through when they aren't on the show anymore but it does upset her that many feel so much weight-related pressure: "I can't control what's out there, I can only control what I produce on my show. I have seen a couple of them and talked to them after, and I'm like, 'What's going on? What are you doing?' And they tell me that that's what the agency wants, and they're under the agency's care. There's only so much that I can do. But it does sadden me."
