America's Next Top Model

Nigel Barker Lists Differences Between ANTM and The Face

We missed Sexy Noted Fashion Photographer Nigel Barker on America's Next Top Model Cycle 19. Sure, new judge Rob Evans is a very sexy Brit himself, but we're still loyal to Nigel.

He's now hosting Naomi Campbell's new modeling competition, The Face, which premieres February 12 at 9 p.m. on Oxygen. Nigel talked to OK! Magazine about the natural comparisons between his old ANTM gig and The Face. "[T]he huge difference is [The Face] is a very authentic take on what this business is," Nigel told OK! "It’s real jobs, it’s real models, it’s real supermodels and the contestants are cast from all over the world — not just from America," Nigel explained. "It’s a shake up of the business and it’s not about being America’s this or that. You could be the face of the world and I think that’s what’s so exciting."

Another difference, Nigel added, is the clients booking the jobs are the ones who decide who wins or leaves, not a panel of judges. "That throws the whole thing on it’s head," Nigel said. "You have no idea who's going to win because it doesn’t matter who you think a judge would favor."

The real verdict in The Face vs. ANTM may be in a comparison of who gets the most post-show jobs. If The Face actually crowns the next Tyra, Naomi or Gisele ... well, that would certainly make them the new top model. But we're still loyal to ANTM — especially now that the boys are coming on Cycle 20!
