Last year BuzzFeed composed a list of Hollywood’s leading men sporting a beard. Of those who made the cut was Michael Ealy, Idris Elba, Taye Diggs, Lenny Kravitz and much more. The beardgang seems to be growing swiftly, with many hoping to be its newest inductee.

Apparently Tyra Banks, like most women, and her America’s Next Top Model (ANTM) crew are also charmed by facial hair. Banks and her crew are enthralled so much it was determined gluing facial hair on a contestant was appropriate. Yes, you read correctly. ANTM crew glued a beard on one of its contestants.

Banks referred to the installment as “Top Model’s very first face weave” or a “lace front beard.” The contestant Denzel, a Houston, Texas, native, disclosed he actually liked the look.

The first attempt of this lace front beard was not the shape Banks initially imagined, so the 23-year-old will undergo another face weave installment.

As a woman who loves a beard on a man, I’m not sure how I feel about this one. Ladies, what do you think? Yay or nay?

    I used to love ANTM back in the day, but it jumped the shark long ago. If this is the kind of crap I’m missing then I’m glad I stopped watching it.

    • I stopped watching six or seven seasons ago well before they went co-ed. Tyra should have ended that show six years ago. However, she is too much of a narcissist for that. The show is more about the backroom drama and ridiculous transformations versus actual modeling.

    Wouldn’t have been so bad if they had at least attempted a natural look. He looks like Wooly Willy.
