After years of disappointment with America's Next Top Model's treatment of plus models, it seems a former contestant is taking matters into her own hands. ANTM Cycle 3 contestant Toccara Jones is hosting Thick House for Facebook Watch, along with judges EJ King and fashion blogger and stylist Kelly Augustine.
Not a lot of details about the series is currently available, but rumor is Glee alum Amber Riley will make an appearance as a guest judge. According to Deadline, Thick House is part of Facebook Watch’s We the Culture programming slate, which is aimed at amplifying the voices of Black content creators. Thick House is produced by Sickbird Productions. Founded by Angelica Nwandu, The Shade Room is an Instagram-based Black media company.
