Former “America’s Next Top Model” judge Janice Dickinson is stepping up her grudge with Tyra Banks, announcing during an interview on a web series that the show is rigged.

In the interview, Dickinson said that the show’s judges, which included both Dickinson as well as Banks for five seasons before sheleft the show, had nothing to do with the decisions of who stays and who goes. Instead, the choices were decided by executives at CoverGirl. The interview took place on a web show called “Alki David for the FilmOn Networks.”

“There was a way I experienced being on that show, being conned, thinking that I was actually helping judge a TV franchise, that actually my say had any imput, but it really didn’t,” she said during the interview. She later said that once she figured out that her decisions were meaningless, she quit the series.




“When I found out, I split. I split.”

Dickinson has thrown down claims about the reality program before, and previously stated that she was fired from the show. Her strong feeling, however, remain as she wraps up the interview with some pointed words for Banks. Hint, the two-word phrase begins with an “F” and ends with a “You.” The interview can be found at FilmOn.com.
