Nigel Barker, host of Oxygen Network’s much buzzed-about new show “The Face,” loves his new gig -- maybe even more than his last as a judge on "America’s Next Top Model.”

“I wasn’t angry. To be honest, I had one week between being let go from the show and signing on with ‘The Face.’ I didn’t have a lot of time for mourning.”

As for the new show, “It’s not overproduced and it’s extremely real,” said Barker. A good thing for a reality show.
