Smize: Tyra Banks & ANTM Nominated for 2 Teen Choice Awards
This has been a pretty troubled year for America’s Next Top Model — from Angelea Preston’s random All-Stars disqualification to Allison Harvard still not winning All-Stars after that, to a serious drop in ratings to the firing of Nigel Barker and the Js to a whole new crop of judges and crazy stuff coming (on Fridays!) for Cycle 19.
But maybe teenagers don’t care?
An early list of 2012 Teen Choice Awards nominees was just released and ANTM is represented in two categories — Choice TV: Reality Competition Show, alongside American Idol, Survivor: One World, The Voice and The X-Factor; and Choice TV: Female Personality, with Tyra Banks up against Christina Aguilera of The Voice, Carrie Ann Inaba of Dancing With the Stars, Jennifer Lopez of American Idol and Jessica Simpson of Fashion Star.
As confused as we are about all the changes in the past year, we still heart ANTM something fierce(ly real) so we hope they win their awards!
If you’re a teenager and want to do your part to help, vote at TeenChoiceAwards.com. The rest of us can still watch the show on Sunday, July 22, at 8 p.m. on FOX.
