J. Alexander On His America’s Next Top Model Firing: “I Didn’t Even Get To Runway For My Life!”

April 23, 2012 10:40 AM by Shayla Perry

Nigel Barker may not have been shocked about America’s Next Top Model‘s mass firing, but it sounds as though the elimination came as a slight surprise to runway coach J. Alexander, affectionately known to the fashion world and fans of the CW show as Miss J. What did he have to say about Tyra Banks‘ decision to bring in new blood for Cycle 18? Read on for all the details.

“After 18 cycles, I found myself in the bottom three and Tyra pulled a surprise triple elimination,” Miss J told Us Weekly after his firing from the hit CW reality show. “I didn’t even get to runway for my life!”

Because we all know that if given the chance, Miss J would’ve been able to secure his spot on the judges’ panel for many seasons to come with his fierce strut. He probably could’ve saved Nigel and Jay Manuel, too!

Who’s going to be tasked with teaching the aspiring models how to work the runway now?! No word yet, but whoever it is, they better be good!

Are you going to miss J. Alexander on Cycle 18 of America’s Next Top Model? Will you still watch the show without him, Jay Manuel, and Nigel Barker? Sound off in the Comments section below.

    Tyra constantly talks about branding. Miss J and Mr. Jay are part of the branding of America’s Next Top Model. They are both still needed and are an intregal part of the show.

    Put it this way? I’ll never watch the show again. Those three gave the show heart and humor. Kelly is awful, and Tyra is making a big mistake. Shame on her for having no loyalty.

    I followed watching the show starting cycle 1 till 17. Never watch 18! New judges are horrible. I used to be a Tyra fan. Not anymore! British invasion? C’mon!

    Tyra went from class to trash. I have heard her say more than once that it is all about the money. She pulled a fast one on the fans and on her “Friends”. As long as that loud mouth fat person and that pretty boy with the hats, oh and by the way, neither of you can hold a candle to the J’s or Nigel in class or style, but as I was saying, I stopped watching when she brought Kelly on the show. It is classless and Tyra has lost her style.
