Tyra Banks on Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner's modelling careers
Tyra Banks thinks Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner have 'Next Top Model' to thank for their blossoming runway careers.
The 42-year-old supermodel is convinced the models-of-the moment, both 20, wouldn't have achieved as much success as they have without the help of the TV modelling show.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, she said: "I think it has opened up the world to accepting reality television stars as models. If you think about Kendall and Kylie Jenner - people think Kylie's not a model, but I think she's a model - and Gigi Hadid and all of these girls from reality television, I think 'Top Model' knocked the doors down for that to be okay in the high fashion world."
And as 'America's Next Top Model' came to an end after 13 years last week, the brunette beauty has been thinking about what her next career move will be.
She said: "I would never host somebody else's show. But I ask myself, 'What is the future of reality television? What is the future of competition television?'
"And I already have an idea of what I think the future of that is. I think I would probably make some appearances in it, but would not be the day-to-day person - I'd be the creator. But I think I've cracked what the future of that is, so stay tuned!"
