Other Clips From ‘America’s Next Top Model Also Resurfaced’
After seeing the clip, people started responding with other ways that Banks had the models on the show perform and shared different clips from the show, including one where models were in a bubble on a slippery runway.
“Fun fact: they had to do this runway twice because nobody fell the first time,” a person replied. “Molly said the second time around they saw producers spraying the runway with Pam to purposely make them fall.”
Another runway had models walking on a floating, moving dock in the water. A person replied to that clip, writing, “I can’t believe I used to watch this and think it was normal.”
