Thu 3 Dec 2009 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

Tyra Banks' gay fashionista friend and runway coach on America's Next Top Model has landed in Auckland - but there's no sign of Banks herself yet. Kia ora Miss Jay! (pic: The A List) Miss Jay Alexander was snapped at Auckland airport this morning, arriving to film several episodes of the hit reality show, where he'll work with top Kiwi designers. Banks confirmed on Twitter this week: "We're going to New Zealand for AMERICA'S Next Top Model, Cycle 14. Every cycle we go to another country for a few challenges." Alexander has been friends with Banks since he was 16 years old starting his modelling career. The pair met backstage at a runway show and he began to give her walking lessons. Banks dubbed him the 'Queen of the Catwalk'. If you spot Tyra or her crew in New Zealand this week, send your story/photos to
