Caribbean’s Next Top Model still on despite funding rumours
Caribbean’s Next Top Model (CNTM) is still on says Shane Ram, executive producer of the latest franchise from model turned mogul, Tyra Banks, and her hit reality show, America’s Next Top Model. Ram said production was now complete and they are in the post-production phase, tweaking the last of 11 episodes, which is apparently a reunion of sorts.
The head judge and face of the Caribbean installment of the show, Wendy Fitzwilliam, and her sister Dionsye Fitzwilliam, are also executive producers of the show, which began shooting last year. CNTM scoured 35 territories from across the region in search of what Fitzwilliam describes as “a true Caribbean woman who can really take over the international fashion circuit.”
Nine to 14 finalists and possibly two alternates were to be selected for the show, as the search for a winner to be awarded a host of prizes, including a modelling contract began.
According to a member of the team, they worked for 80 days straight and the crew comprised a total of 63 people—all local. Rumour has it that CNTM faced some funding issues and the crew have yet to be paid for completed work. When asked about those rumours, Ram said they should be treated as rumours, and that an announcement will be made shortly about the viewing dates for the show.
