Critic Reviews for America's Next Top Model Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

America's Next Top Model is a fun concept, especially for male viewers, but it would be better if the camera, and the people behind it, loved these women more.

Nov 19, 2019 | Full Review…

As with most reality TV, the success of the show boils down mainly to casting, which is where it really excels. In both the judging and the modeling, the show revolves around a pair of strong opposite poles.

This is the show"Are You Hot? should've been.

Nov 8, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

[Tyra Banks'] show has been undeniably imaginative and engrossing.

Jul 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Top Model's hook is just as much in its contestants' claw-baring weirdness and whining as it is in the glamour shots and haute couture.

Mar 5, 2019 | Full Review…

While the revolving door at the judges' table, the grossness of Tyra's constant idiotic catchphrases, and the repetitiveness of the challenges eventually eroded my passion for the series, my devotion to season one remains pure and true.

Oct 9, 2018 | Full Review…

America's Next Top Model is intriguing, appealing, and grotesque, much like the fashion world itself.

Nov 20, 2019 | Full Review…

It's altogether awkward, a collection of stray parts that don't quite fit together, sort of like how models always describe the way they looked in junior high.

Nov 20, 2019 | Full Review…

The series has the stock reality elements: The competitors share a penthouse and annoy one another; a panel of experts drops one hopeful a week. But at least the humiliation is a little different.

Nov 20, 2019 | Full Review…

The show creators settle on the right blend of drama and aspiration, and cap it off with humorous comentary and sizzling photo shoots.

Nov 8, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Love it or leave it-and it's had moments of both in its long lifespan-America's Next Top Model is one of the most influential reality shows of all time.

Oct 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Although host Tyra Banks stresses that the most beautiful contestant won't necessarily win, the women are still judged on their looks, how well they photograph, and their ability to communicate personality.
