Tyra Banks Reportedly Wants Rita Ora to Leave 'America's Next Top Model' After Ratings Drop

According to viewers, you really can’t have ‘America’s Next Top Model’ without Tyra Banks.

When the show tried to reboot last season with a new host, new judges, and a whole different vibe…the ratings took quite a dip. Now, Tyra reportedly wants new host Rita Ora to leave the show.

via OK magazine:

Tyra Banks is allegedly regretting handing over her huge gig as host of America’s Next Top Model to singer Rita Ora! Apparently, the British beauty cannot take the heat, and the supermodel wants her to pack her bags and go.

“There was hope that Rita would revive ANTM’s ratings” for the 23rd season, “but after a promising start, the numbers dwindled.”

And when Tyra, who remains as the executive producer, found out about the reason behind the sliding rating could be partially Rita’s fault, as she was “sometimes unprepared,” said an insider, Tyra “was furious.”

While a VH1 rep told Life & Style Rita is “a total pro” and they are “thrilled to have partnered with her,” we have a feeling there may be more to this story.
