Nigel Barker, a photographer who has been with America's Next Top Model since its beginning in 2003, was let go from the reality competition this week.
How is he taking the news? Not too well.
"Good luck to whoever [replaces me]," Barker told TMZ. "I would imagine it's a tricky thing to replace someone who's going on their 19th season."
Neither J. Alexander nor Jay Manuel will return to America's Next Top Model this fall, either, as insiders tell major changes are in store. Ratings have not been strong for two cycles in a row now.
""Who knows if this is going to work?" Barker asked. "I don't necessarily think it's a good idea ... Maybe it will work. Maybe it won't. I wish them luck."
Somehow, we doubt he totally means that.
