Tyra Banks is once again being dragged.

These new revelations come just after the host had to address some of the show’s more questionable moments.

Previously, viewers had dragged Tyra for how she treated Season Six winner Danielle Evans, after she was told she needed to undergo reconstructive dental work to be “more marketable” but the model had refused to get it done.

Now another former contestant, ANTM season nine alum and former plus-size model Sarah Hartshorne, 34, has revealed to the New York Post how much the contestants were earning per episode and how they were mistreated on the show.

Sarah chose to expose Banks and her fellow guest judges after people discovered how much Tyra was earning.

While the models were making R605 per day, Tyra had banked $30 million for a 12 month period as creator and host of the show.

Hartshorne says that she doesn’t regret doing the show but she knows a lot of people who do and she understands why.

She says the power dynamic on set, the rules and contracts made it very hard to leave. Apparently the producers work very hard to discourage that type of behaviour.

Tyra Banks, nor her representatives have yet responded to the latest claims.
