The show is a mess, a somewhat entertaining one, but still a mess because finding a top model is not its true mission. It's to get ratings, make money, and make Tyra rich.
That said, it's inaccurate to say Tyra was not a top model. She was very, very successful in her time. Regardless of what you think of VS or SI, getting a contract as an Angel and getting on its cover is still a benchmark in a model's career. And her two covers on SI's swimsuit issue was when it was still considered decent, not the bargain bin of 3rd and 4th rate models it's become.
She's appeared on many many HF runways as well as top fashion magazines even if she wasn't plastered all over the covers of all the Vogues. It's not like Joan Small is on every Vogue cover, or Jourdan Dunn, and Iman was not on many Vogue covers. Would you say they're not top models?

^ exactly! before being on the cover of SI only went to the top tiered models but now it's 3rd rate models who get on it at best. Another thing is the VS covers, I remember in an interview Ed said that 8 hundred million copies of the catalogue was sent out. You can put the subscriptions of all the vogues and fashion mags together and they won't even come close to that number, so that was more exposure for her. Another thing he said is that no matter where he went around the world the first thing everyone asked him was if he knew Tyra Banks. She was known in every hole around the world lol.

Joan Smalls is about the biggest model in HF right now next to Karlie Kloss and Arizona Muse but she has yet to be on the cover of any edition of Vogue... so much for "change and advancement" in the industry
