Fired ‘Top Model’ Judge Nigel Barker — Good Luck Replacing Me

Freshly-fired “America”s Next Top Model” judge Nigel Barker tells our sources, the show”s in for a rude awakening now that he”s been canned … because his shoes will be INCREDIBLY difficult to fill.

Nigel tells us, “Good luck to whoever [replaces me]. I would imagine it”s a tricky thing to replace someone who”s going on their 19th season.”

As for why Nigel believes he got the boot — he tells us, the network is bent on completely revamping the show … after record low ratings the last two seasons.

But he adds, “Who knows if this is going to work I don”t necessarily think it”s a good idea … Maybe it will work. Maybe it won”t. I wish them luck.”

Tyra Banks announced this morning … the CW would not be renewing Nigel”s contract for the show”s next season. The other two famed “Top Model” judges Jay Manuel and J. Alexander were also fired.
