Fans of Tyra Banks' reality TV show AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL will never see orgy scenes that boosted ratings earlier this year (04) - because the model was too shocked by the footage.

The model-turned-TV producer admits she was left speechless when she saw the footage of contestants on the show having full-blown sex with Italian models in a hot tub.

Her fellow producers initially planned to show saucy cuts but changed their minds after Janet Jackson bared a breast during the SUPERBOWL telecast in February (04), causing a national outcry in America.

And Banks admits she's happy, because she thought the footage was a little too shocking.

She says, "It's definitely on the cutting room floor... When I saw the footage... I was like, 'Wow, I can't (show it). I would never do something like that. I can't believe these girls did this.'

"I think a lot of alcohol was involved and I don't drink, so I don't know what that feels like."
