Tyra to Make Over America
Like her ever-evolving hairline, Tyra Banks is expanding her empire with the first official America’s Next Top Model spinoff.
Operation Fabulous will ANTM experts Miss Jay Manuel and Mr. J Alexander as the switch their way across the country, invading small towns and picking the frumpiest Jane Doe’s to makeover.
The Hollywood Reporter says the inspiration for the series comes from a sacred right of Top Model passage: the Top Model makeover episode, in which castable beauties transform into maybe-model material.
While Operation Fabulous is the first independent spinoff, Ty-Ty also has plans for a mini-reality show to air within her own talk show. This piggy-backing product will follow memorable contestants (but non-winners) from cycles 8, 9 and 10, and their lives post-Banks.
