That time she fell over on the Tyra Banks show

Back with The Tyra Banks show was on the air, the former supermodel used to have all kinds of guests on her show. From the former President, Barack Obama, to the then-cast of Glee, the Tyra show covered everything from politics to entertainment. But on this particular episode, Banks hosted an animal she wasn’t particularly fond of.


When she tried 9 things she’s never tried before

To promote the latest season on ANTM, Allure invited Banks to try a few new things. The outcome was this hilarious 5-minute video. We’re amazed by how well Banks applied her eye shadow with that tiny hand, if we’re being honest.


Hannah Montana: The Movie’s shoe fight scene

If you’re like us, you probably forgot about the time Tyra Banks made an appearance in the Hannah Montana movie that had us poppin’, lockin’, and polkadottin’.


When she literally acted a fool on America’s Next Top Model

When it came to her teaching on Top Model, Banks has always been very hands on.

On an episode of The Tyra Banks Show, the audience started jumping out of their seats when Banks surprised them with her number one beauty secret, which turned out to be a tub of Vaseline.

When Banks made her MADtv debut

Remember MADtv, the comedy show that created many of the skits that we couldn’t stop talking about in the early aughts? Back in 2000, Banks made an appearance on the show as Katisha, a store manager who gets into an argument with the unforgettable character, Bunifa.


The time Banks fake passed out

In a creative introduction to an acting challenge, Banks pretended to pass out in front of a number of models on one season of ANTM. Their facial expressions say it all.
