Kendall Jenner was being considered as Tyra Banks’ replacement as the host of ‘America’s Next Top Model’, but that plan was intercepted by Mama Jenner! HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY why Kris doesn’t want Kendall to take the gig.
Kendall Jenner, 20, is the hottest supermodel in town, and she could host America’s Next Top Model with her eyes closed. However, Kris Jenner, 60, made the executive decision to turn down the job on Kendall’s behalf. Find out why!
A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Kris put the brakes on Kendall’s possible new gig because it would have been a demotion of sorts! “Kris felt this was a step backward and so they turned it down,” the insider says. “Kris feels Kendall is already on TV with their own reality show, and Kendall has bigger and better projects lined up for her career.” As we previously told you, producers have been looking for a replacement for Tyra Banks and pegged Kendall for the spot, but it looks like the show is out of luck. “Momager Kris doesn’t think it’s a good fit for her daughter,” the source adds.
We also told you that the show went after Gigi Hadid, 20, but she turned down the job, too. “Gigi Hadid was another young model the producers have been eyeing for the gig, but her team also passed on the position,” an insider tells us. “Gigi liked the idea but did not want to interrupt her busy schedule with the show. She is open to possible guest spots or maybe taking the job down the road, but the timing isn’t right for her now.” Gigi and Kendall belong on the catwalk, and committing to a show like ANTM would be really tough on their careers at this stage!
