A former contestant of “America’s Next Top Model” is accusing Tyra Banks and the show of paying contestants only $40 a day. Sarah Hartshorne, who competed on the show during season 9 in 2007, revealed her meager pay in a Twitter thread discussing the models’ paychecks on Monday.

The controversial tweet erupted on the social media platform after a Twitter user started a discussion of how little the “ANTM” contestants are actually making from the show. “The fact that girls on ANTM were getting paid $40 an episode and Tyra and them judges were making BANK, is kinda sick,” wrote the user.

Adding fuel to the fire, Hartshorne responded to the tweet, writing, “$40 an episode, no residuals, and we had to pay for food.”
