'America's Next Top Model' Returns Without Tyra Banks
New show, new host.
America's Next Top Model is back. After 22 cycles, the model competition returns with a new look and new host--that isn't Tyra Banks.
"After creating an incredible, global brand, I am beyond excited to have the show reborn. I will continue as Executive Producer, but must turn my attention to new business endeavors, so I want to find a new host," shared Tyra Banks in a press release. "I’m pumped to identify that person and bring back the show. Top Model fans, you demanded that the show come back, and VH1 answered the call. Get ready for a fierce-a-fied rebirth!”
America's Next Top Model introduced the world to several fresh faces who would go on to work in the fashion and entertainment industry. Memorable contestants include actress Yaya DaCosta, Cycle three winner Eva Marcielle and TV personality Tocarra Jones. Tyra served not only as host but judge, photographer and model whisperer.
The new, reinvented show will be based in New York City and aired on VH1. Premiere date and information about the new hosts to come soon.
