Wow, this is a not so covert slap in the face to Tyra. Oh Naomi how messy. I love it!

glad to see KK too! but Nigel?? he's just useless , if Naomi wanted to piss Tyra off then she should've got one of the Jays!

i also would've liked that the show were for the UK, i think the US has kinda run out of girls with model potential who are actually interested after ANTM's 15+ seasons..

and score one for naomi for getting karolina and coco as judges, which beats kelly cutrone and bryanboy

I actually think that Tyra & Co. just don't know how to choose the right girls. And when they do have girls with talent, they send them home within the first 5 episodes. I think part of the problem is that Tyra is stuck in the 90's world of HF modeling because that was her last experience with that industry. So, she always has a superficial and unrealistic approach to her show based on the standards of a bygone era. You can see it in the challenges and hear it in her advise/critiques. She's basically pretending to be an expert at an industry that she doesn't understand anymore. Naomi never left the industry so she has a much better/credible grasp of the current market.

This show has the potential to start some legit careers if they focus on finding girls that have actual hf potential. I hope they don't resort to gimmicks for ratings like the shows that came before it. Its time to feature the real hf industry. Very excited to see what photographers, stylists, and brands they feature. I'm not expecting Meisel, Templer, M&M, or MAS, but I do think some heavy hitters will be there. I'd be shocked if Edward Enninful and D&G didn't participate.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA – July 25, 2012 – Oxygen Media today announced that world-famous supermodels Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha will join renowned supermodel and businesswoman Naomi Campbell on ‘The Face’ a new reality competition series that features aspiring female models in their quest to win the opportunity of becoming “the face” for a well-known brand. This powerhouse trio of supermodel coaches will be responsible for molding, nurturing and transforming the promising contestants as they compete for the career opportunity of a lifetime. Additionally, famed fashion photographer and former model Nigel Barker will host the series. Oxygen has also tapped Andrew Frank, a veteran showrunner (“The Amazing Race” and “Survivor”), as executive producer. “The Face” is scheduled to air in 2013 and casting for the aspiring models is currently underway.

Oxygen viewers will gain access inside the world of modeling with “The Face,” which features three teams of models, each led by supermodel coaches Campbell, Kurkova and Rocha. The coaches will scout and choose their teams from aspiring young models nationwide before guiding them through assignments, which include photo shoots, runway shows and commercials for some of America’s best known brands. Throughout the series, the supermodel coaches will mentor these young hopefuls taking the lessons and skills they have learned and using them to guide their teams through challenges that accurately depict what it takes to have a career as a model and be the face of a brand. During the process, these young models will be exposed to the very best photographers, stylists and designers in the fashion world. In the end, one girl will be chosen to become ‘The Face’ of a well-known brand, earning a real contract as the brand ambassador. As the image of this brand, the winner will become a spokesperson for that company, representing it from all angles – in print, on-air and at brand-hosted events.

WHY?! what a terrible idea. he's so boring and irrelevant. coco seems to be branding herself as more of a spokesmodel now, which annoys me, but the girl can pose so i'm stoked she'll be on the show. i could watch her pose all day haha

oh lord this just got 100% better for me. The only thing that can make this even better is if for competitions we see these girls walking REAL runways like Chanel & Dior. I think Naomi has the connections to pull that off.

I'm not bothered by Nigel host, since:
- it's likely he won't get a lot of screen time, since I think it's gonna be based more on the coaches, and there's no need for a judging panel of sorts;
- and taking Nigel from Tyra was such a fantastic, brilliant bitch move from Naomi.

If Nigel quit ANTM to join TF we'd have a story. In reality Tyra fired him and then Naomi hired him..........so it's more like Naomi is picking up Tyra's sloppy seconds. To be honest, I doubt either one of them put a whole lot of thought into the matter either way.

Even though I loathe Coco, I love me some Naomi so I will definitely be watching. I won't have my hopes set too high but it'd be impossible for the show to be any worse than ANTM.

I can't wait to see the show, Naomi was enough but with the addition of KK and Coco I'm very excited. Contrary to most people here, I actually like Coco and can't wait to see how the show plays out. Nigel is ok, who is he really? I do love that fact that he switched from Tyra's sinking ship to Naomi's show.

I think there is a Dutch show also called the Face with the same premise.

I love Survivor and the Amazing Race so I'm sure this show is in good hands with executive producer, Andrew Frank.

I gave up on ANTM 2 cycles ago (finally) and I have already decided that this will fill the void left in my heart and I will be all about it. Nigel was the worst on ANTM and totally useless but I am excited to see him here just for the lols of it all.

When this show turns out to be awesome I hope Tyra has a public freak out. Oh, it will be glorious.

I wonder if Nigel will be like Christina Milian on The Voice or Ryan Seacrest on Idol. Just sort of an eye candy deal who narrates the show without giving input. I loathe him but that'd be fine.

I can't decide if it's awesome or sad that Naomi's show features Coco and Karolina, both of whom guested on Top Model in the past 2 years. I guess it's cool that she got them on board for a full show instead of a brief stint. I feel like Coco will be a crap judge but I'm not making any judgments.

But the true tea as to why I'm posting here is that this blog I follow on Tumblr got an ask that said that she went to the casting in LA (I think) and that it basically came off like the casting selectors only wanted white models. If that's true I think it's sad that a show hosted by someone who ACTUALLY broke down barriers for models of color wouldn't even be receptive to new ethnic talent.

I hope this is good but since it's on the network that brought us The Bad Girls Club and Jerseylicious...I really don't know. I'll tune in just for a weekly Naomi dosage though.

what's sad is that the show hasn't even started yet and the race card is already out.
