Full Disclosure: I have no actual credentials to determine whether a show actually teaches modeling or not. However, I did grow up in the “America’s Next Top Model” generation and watched that show go from a modeling competition to weird-trying-to-promote-Tyra-Banks-but-failing-reality-horror-fest. I think the show is now more concerned with promoting Tyra’s weird phrases and attempts at being a novelist than grooming young models. So I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered “The Face.”
The coaches (Naomi, KK, and Coco) seem as though they actually have good insight and their insight differs depending on what type of coach/model they are. There is some strategy involved as another user notes which makes you feel like maybe the “good models” are being sent home too early but I still think the most deserving models made the top three.
I see that some users really don’t like Naomi’s attitude. She is tough, and personally I am a huge Coco fan and thought Coco was the best judge. That being said, Naomi put the girls in their place. Whereas Tyra Banks fed off of the model drama and used it to embarrass them/get ratings, Naomi won’t take any of their attitudes.
And more than anything, who doesn’t love Nigel Barker? Sorry Tyra, Naomi has you beat hands down on this one.
