Tyra Banks Forced to Accept New Co-Host?


Last week it was announced that 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' star, Alfonso Ribeiro, would be joining Tyra Banks as the new co-host for Dancing with the Stars [click here if you missed that]. 

Apparently Tyra didn't have a say in the matter...

“Tyra was basically told that she would have to co-host the show with Alfonso or not host the show at all,” sources tell RadarOnline.com.
“Tyra tried to host the show solo, and it just didn’t work. She thought her personality and talent would be enough, but viewers didn’t agree. Focus groups showed they missed the chemistry of two hosts working together. Obviously, Tyra wasn’t happy about the decision, but she had no choice, if she refused, she would have been shown the door,” an insider tells us.

Who wants to share the spotlight when you think you're the Sh*t. She's a giant and he's a midget. It should look quite odd with both of them standing next to one another. It might work.

I dont understand why Tyra is so desperate to always be seen. Doesnt she have a young baby she could be spending time with? At this point in her career she shouldnt HAVE to work.

I can truly see Alfonso in this role! Omg, this is soooo him. Lol. I like Tyra a lot but for upbeat family shows, Alfonso has that it factor. I could see him hosting Family Feud too because he's just like John O'Hurley and he's nice.

She needs to go. He has experience as a show host and is known around the world for his popular dance move. Also, while some may see him as a cornball, his personality is better suited for the job.

Maybe they're using him as her understudy and will eventually phase her out. That happens in the workplace all the time and might be the plan.

I agree. Tyra is still an EP, why can't she just sit back and let AR take the reins? She'd still get paid.

I hate her hosting style. I can see him hosting he seems wholesome.

Idk why everyone is acting like they never worked with each other before. They were on the Fresh Prince when Will and Carolton we're in college.

I think the reason why she keeps a check, any check, coming in is she keeps opening businesses in L.A. which isn't cheap outside of home or a swap meet space. The last I heard, she was starting a model-themed restaurant (like Planet Hollywood) in Santa Monica. Off the top of my head, I don't know how well these ventures do but anything involving food is going to be a great overhead.

A fashion-themed restaurant is not a good business venture or original idea. Others have tried and flopped. https://hellogiggles.com/lifestyle/food-drink/fashion-cafe-1995/

Dancing with the Stars has been demoted to their streaming service now. They should have never gotten rid of Tom Bergeron, who die hard DWTS fans loved. Alphonso should be the permanent host, not Tyra. She has never really been liked but she's such an attention whore and a control freak, that she just has to have the spotlight. Tyra ruined a good thing.

Alphonso will do great in this role. I hope Tyra behaves herself, if not they will just have him hosting by himself. He has the personality for these type gigs.

Did ANTM girls have a say so? OK, there’s that!

This is 12:25. I remember that restaurant when the real supermodels (Cindy, Naomi, Linda Evangelista, and 'em) were in their prime and it was implied that the venture was theirs.
I think what Tyra may be banking on these days is that she obviously loves to eat. That, along with her fluctuating weight, would make her a perfect candidate for the growing foodie culture that's been hot for a few years. It could be bankable but i forgot she was trying to open an amusement park too. https://news.yahoo.com/tyra-banks-makes-ice-cream-152327330.html?fr=sycsrp_catchall
So yeah, she's holding on for dear life because her presence on DWTS makes about as much sense as size 28 booty shorts. Let Carlton Banks have it until the wheels fall off.

This bitch Tyra plays for keeps she don't care. Get ready for her mean ass to wear the highest heels she could walk in just to remind AR what it is. The good news is he wont care. He will Carlton his way around her gigantic ass and collect his check, go on to be the only reason anyone continues to tune in and move on to hosting everything else but Family Feud.

Alphonso will be the new host after a season of co-hosting with Tyra. No one likes her. ANTM did NOT age well at ALL... stereotyping, bullying and so much more. I'm surprised the millennials haven't demanded she be fired for her and ANTM show's poor behavior. I used to LOVE that show. Now, when I look at it I cringe. Ugh. She and those judges tore those young ladies down.

Right @901 and 💀@357 lol

ANTM is my guilty pleasure. Maybe it's my inner mean girl, but, some of those clips of Tyra and the J's had me WEAK LMAO! Tyra is funny as hell! But she does better in her model/ANTM lane with millennials and generation Z. DWTS is more for her mother's generation and prior- they don't understand the allure of Tyra because they don't share her value system. Hosting DWTS was the worst decision of her career. I'm sure she's probably giving her mama hell for convincing her to do this shit. Her brand is suffering, and, like you said, those ANTM cycles did not age well. Tyra needs a brand overhaul and that begins with ANTM. I really think Tyra should create another show, or documentary on ANTM, before someone else does (Hulu Victoria Secrets documentary and Epstein connection). That way, Tyra can rebrand herself, as well as address any controversies that appeared during the pandemic, when a younger generation was introduced to ANTM, and how it affects the modern day era of "wokeness".
