If you’ve ever watched an episode of America’s Next Top Model, then no doubt you’ve dreamt of being a part of the show at some point or another.

Tyra joined the Kyle and Jackie O show this morning when she told us exactly what ModelLand is all about.

“ModelLand means like get your model on!” Tyra told us this morning. “If you have a camera phone you are a model.”

“It’s indoors, so people say theme park, I’m not sure how that started, we’re not a theme park as in outside,” She continued. “We are an attraction that is inside. 21,000 square feet!… It’s like the size of a department store.”

So what actually happens when you visit ModelLand? Tyra filled us in with the deets saying that there’s something there for everyone.


“You come to Model Land and you can be the fantasy versions of yourself,” Tyra explained. “You learn how to take the most cool pictures, you’re on this like story driven journey with actors and dancers and when you come to ModelLand you are the star.”

Tyra told us that while their LA version of ModelLand is her focus right now, she has plans to take this thing global. Which we think means that we could just see a version pop Down Under!

“So ModelLand we’re going big in LA,” Tyra told us. “We’re going to be expanding around the world, right now we’re really focused on Los Angeles and Santa Monica. This is the home base. I’m going to be here everyday making sure it’s a great experience.”
